I wouldn't say that I'm bored with my G2. In fact, I am very happy with it. I find that it's stable, has decent battery life, and runs most of the apps I want the way I want.

I have to say "most" because there are two hardware features that I really wish the G2 had that could enable some nice software capabilities.

1) Front-facing camera: Sure, I can get Skype and G+ to use the rear camera, and they can do the job sometimes, but I wish there was another camera on the front.

2) HDMI out. This one isn't what I would call critical. In fact what I would really like is an app that would let me wirelessly stream the framebuffer to a remote computer at a decent framerate.

I watched the announcements from CES and MWC, and it really doesn't look like there is anything coming down the pipe (T-Mobile/Wind Mobile compatible) that has everything the G2 has, plus those two features.

Everyone has them. Learn to live with it k?

What YOU need to understand is these stupid posts appear all the time because someone feels the need to justify buying a new phone. If you want to buy a new phone, then go buy it. No one is telling you that because you're bored of it you must never buy a newer and/or better phone.
Opinions are like ***holes, everyone's got them and more often it's annoying to hear (or in this case: read) their whinings about it. You don't like it, make the change, but crying around will not suddenly make the phone more interesting nor will it make you get a special discount for QQing in the forums to buy a new phone.
You don't like my opinion? Then I suggest you take what you said and apply it to yourself: "Learn to live with it k?"

TLDR Version: Cry some more. You don't like it, then don't reply back to me. That's MY opinion.

lol, sounds like you're just hurt from being banned. You're welcome to continue lashing out though, I don't really care.
p.s: sick of hearing people whine does not mean i'm crying about it.

I totally get what you're saying but I think people felt like you were dumping on the G2/Desire Z, that's all...

Guys please no more fighting. No one needs to get into trouble over such petty stuff. You both seem like respectable members here so can we end this before the mods get pissed? Thanks

Now that's a testament to the G2! 26 hours of battery life in a day!

I unplugged my phone yesterday at around 11am and it's currently 11:37am. My battery life is at: 76%
I used it only a tiny bit, but considering it's been checking my emails every hour, I'm pretty impressed...(oh this also includes a normal restart which usually drains 8% battery for some odd reason...)

The wolfson chip has introduced many sounds and effects laid in the background music I've never heard before. The wolfson dac is in all of the galaxy s phones btw. Not sure about the gnex.

Thanks for the tip. On your word alone. I know what my next phone purchase might be. I sought out a friend who has a Vibrant and oh my god...the Wolfson chip w/ voodoo is a huge difference in sound quality for the better. Now if only the Captivate Glide would make its way to T-MO will I know for sure what I'll be investing in.

I'm still ultimately pleased with mine. It's a solid device that holds up and competes with the majority of most dual core devices out there. To state the obvious, the boredom sets in from Gingerbread becoming stale and tapped of it's "wow" factor.
