    What would I do without a Starbucks app...yeah, I'd return it too
    I was hoping someone would poke fun at this. People's obsession/addiction with Starbucks is ridiculous. At least put that money towards a real drug addiction.

    To everyone else, why does it matter if the Starbucks app is important to him? Maybe he likes their half double decaffeinated half-caf with a twist of lemon, and the cost is worth that little bit of joy he gets from it.
    It's not about him disliking the phone, there have been plenty of complains about it on here and people are usually sympathetic.

    It's more the fact that he wasted a perfectly good N4 that one of us eager fans could have had all due to his own negligence. One minute of research would reveal that LTE is missing from this phone, and the fact that his chief complaint is that he can't order his lattes from his phone anymore is laughable and kind of pissing me off. These days people return way too much , and it only further increases prices because they take money lost on returns into account.

    I know I know, "cool story bro"

    In the computer world, hardware is notorious for moving faster than software.

    I played with the SGS3 for a little while, but ultimately the biggest turn-off about non-Nexus devices is the short lives they lead before the manufacturer simply terminates that product line. In the past I watched a family member get burned when a manufacturer of a non-Nexus device failed to deliver on the promise of delivering updates to their flagship phone's OS to clear up a big GPU performance problem. Of course there's the custom ROM route though.

    But for the Nexus series, Its one of the biggest selling points for me, IMHO.. Constant Google updates, and a long life. I pick up a new phone whenever there's a huge leap in innovation (last phone was a T-Mobile G2x / LG Optimus 2X for example) .. And jumping into a quad-core phone with a powerful GPU AND that's a Nexus device is just too awesome. I'll bite the bullet and see if I can deal with the lack of memory expansion.

    The quad core really does make a great difference in performance... and speed and stability have greatly increased! However... I wish the camera and audio quality were a little better...

    I'm surprised that Starbucks even has an Android app. Seems like they'd make that iPhone only in order to keep it isolated to only elite hipsters for whom $5 is a OK price for ground beans in hot water.

    ...and bitter beans at that.
    Well in fairness a regular cup of coffee at Starbucks is about $1.50-$1.75. Other stuff costs more, but for "ground beans in hot water" it's not really that expensive. A coffee at McDonald's or Dunkin is not a whole lot cheaper.

    I happened to wonder around US states for 2 years. And i always missed New York City blue cup coffee from grocery stores. All those chain places like McDonalds, Starbucks, dunkin donuts, gas station... No offense but it taste like total crap.

    Love the device ...feels great

    BUTTTTTTT

    some of my every day apps are still not working on 4.2 (starbucks/Volume +/live 365)

    and NO LTE...

    Just got a SGS3 and I am very pleased... (I love that the menu buttons are on the device and APPS use a FULL screen)

    I am sure I will be back... but sometimes being first on the block is not the best thing
    Mine is going BACK...!!!-uploadfromtaptalk1354254205742.jpg

    I think its stupid that people like the nexus phone for faster updates. So what. Your telling me next year when the nexus 5 comes out you nexus nerds are not gonna buy anyway? So what's useful about the updates when your just gonna buy the new hardware with latest software anyway. I like my s3 running ice cream sandwich. (Update coming Monday) and I like the features it has. I change the launcher to get rid of the uglyness and I'm happy.
    The glass worries the hell out of me too.

    Now to be Hippocratical... I tried to get the nexus. It looks nice and the reviews are great. The price is right too. But nothing wrong with my s3.

    Touch. Perhaps I'm pissed more than I think about not getting the n4 and ranting randomly.

    Hippocratical
    Wowsers.

    Anyway, I'm coming from an LG so old that I dont even know the name of it. It was the first android to come to MetroPCS.

    It was good to me and took so much abuse it wasn't even funny. It fell hundreds of times and never even cracked the screen once. Yes, it would 'break' open and scatter the battery and back of the phone across the floor every time it fell, but never cracked my screen.

    I'm ridiculously careful with this phone though. I love it, It's amazing. I'm just now realizing the battery life really isn't bad at all, I just finally stopped playing with it constantly. I will still get the new one when it comes out in a year and just use this one as more of secondary (bars, nightlife, etc) and use the new one for school and work, just switching out the sim card when necessary.

    your point would be valid if there was only one update a year. Since I first got my galaxy nexus until now there have been roughly 6 updates. With unlocked nexus you get them instantly. VZW galaxy nexus is still 3 updates behind. the GS3 is even further behind.

    I was using the GS3 for 3 weeks until i got my nexus 4 and if you put nova launcher on it is a great phone. i absolutely loathe the physical buttons though. The home button is bad but having the menu button hidden killed me.

    Is nova really that much better than Apex? I haven't tried it yet, Will probably download it and fiddle with it here and there until I like it more than Apex I suppose.

    And why does no one talk about Go Launcher when it has so many more downloads? I used Go on my last phone the whole time, had no idea about Nova and Apex.

    Wait until you own a phone that's barely a year old yet stuck on a two year old version of the OS, then come talk about why guaranteed/fast updates are a stupid reason to want a phone.

    I agree to an extent lol first I think the nexus program is the way to go. But I buy my phones based on what hardware they have and bootloader situations lol nothing more as I hate most stock firmware so I get rid of it asap

    6 updates? Really. Probably just fixes. Usually only one update a year. Even 4.1 to 4.2 isn't much except more bugs. And your lock screen widgets.

    When the roms start coming out it will get rid of the on screen buttons. Good luck with touch wiz and lack of updates.
    Good luck with a cracked back. Everyone said how stupid Apple was to use glass backs on iPhone, but now Nexus Disciples think its great... O_o

    I love TouchWiz. Of course I also love SD card slots and LTE. Also Samsung is leaps and bounds ahead of LG.
