    Default Going nexus after e4gt? Also, how is aosp?

    After the experience with bad updates (terrible battery life) with this phone, who is going nexus from now on? I know I for sure am. I like stock Android and being able to get quick updates.

    Also, does anyone have aosp on their e4gt? If so, how is it? I am considering going to it. How is battery life and performance on it? Thanks!

    Lol, I'll be using this until end of contract for sure, but i think the Nexus line has tons of benefits.

    I'm not up for a new phone for at least a year. Back when I got this E4GT it was between this and the last Google Nexus and I went with the E4GT because of the two-for-one deal. That said, even if the Nexus 4 does come out on Sprint (it's GSM-only for now) the non-replaceable battery is a deal-killer for me and I'm not keen on having *extra* glass (on the back) to break! Aesthetics are great for *selling* a phone but it doesn't always make practical sense (to me).

    I understand that, that is why we have choices right? some phones that are terrible for some people are great for others. For me, I will have a case to protect it anyway and the software benefits are huge. Always getting the updates, the fastest too.

    Yes, you're right. It is better than non nexus though. But I'm hoping to go to gsm eventually anyway.

    I will be getting the Nexus 4 for myself, and my wife. $350 for a phone with those specs is worth paying the ETF to me, and move on to a prepaid carrier.

    Me 2. Going to T-Mo or Simply Mobile with the Nexus 4. HSPA+ where I live blows WiMax away, so I'm not too bummed about no LTE. I'll be curious to see reviews on the camera. That is the only thing that concerns me a bit on the N4. But a killer phone for $350 and $50/mo Unlimited everything is a no-brainer for me. Looking forward to immediate Android updates and updates that aren't half-baked and bloated with carrier and manufacturer junk.

    A one year warranty on a phone that has a non-removable battery doesnt appeal to me. I have yet to find a batt that will charge the same after about a year. Plus, it will probably be a while before a google phone makes it back to Sprint anyway.


    In regards to ASOP question, it is my understanding that all still have bugs. If you can handle the bugs they can be used as DD Hybrids are little less buggy, but able to be used for DD pretty good. I have been on CN(A) Joyride and I have been pretty happy.

    I find pure Android to be a bit boring and limited in features. I far prefer Cyanogenmod and the various ROMs based from it like AOKP, PA, CNA etc. Every Nexus device will likely have those options developed for it though so it's basically a non issue.

    I will not be giving up my ET4G, just used my sprint upgrade on the 1st to get it free from Bestbuy, Lol.

    I also have T-Mobile prepaid using Galaxy Exhibit, will be purchasing N4 after holidays, just because I can.

    Before anyone asks, I have T-Mobile and GSM phones because I spend a great deal of the year in Mexico, Sprint CMDA has no chip and I need the chip slot when I switch over to Telcel in Mexico.
