Nexus S vs EVO/EVO 3D
There are going to be haters on the Sprint Nexus S due to it being "old" technology (jeez, just read the discussion on Engadget) because it's not dual core, but really, most people don't really care about dual core as long as the phone just works. I just happened to pick up a Nexus S yesterday at BB. Really like the size, the screen, etc. What I am waiting to find out is the battery life on a CMDA version. If it is an improvement over the EVO (and you know the EVO 3D is not going to be better), I will seriously look at the Nexus S. Oh, and the phone (yes, I am old fashioned, I still use my phone to make calls) needs to work well too - something Samsung is not typically known for.Treo 650> Moto Q> Moto Q9c> BB Storm> HTC Touch Pro> iPhone 3G> Palm Pre> iPhone 3GS> Droid> Incredible> EVO 4G

I've grown past the "spec wars" aspect of phones, so I'm leaning toward the Nexus S. I'm curious to know what advantages the Nexus S has over my current EVO. Mainly I'm curious to see about battery life, and I'm getting bored with Sense and wouldn't mind being first with updates.

Anyone know if Sprint Nav will be included? I saw that Google Maps with Navigation will be on it though, how does that work? Never seen it before. I'm seriously considering dumping my Pre- for this phone as HP/Palm isn't coming out with a 4"+ slab phone any time soon. I use my phone as a GPS quite a bit, so I need to make sure it has a good navigation package.
Up in the air between this and the Evo 3d, guess it depends on when the Evo will be available. Hopefully we'll find out tomorrow!

It's not so much a Spec as it is just a feature of the phone.. but the 16GB thing really has me bummed out. It's 2011, and it's 6 months after the original and there's STILL only 16GB?? I thought for sure that this phone would be announced with 32. There's a very good chance the next iPhones will be 32/64, and the NxS will have the same storage as the $100 piece of garbage that Apple nearly gives away.
I'm marginally interested in the Evo3D, mostly because it seems like it'll have a real battery, something the Evo and Thunderbolt haven't considered.
Mostly I don't want to go above 4" for a screen and I'm expecting it's Nexus S or nothing on Sprint. Oh and I don't want a keyboard either for useless bulk that I'll never use.
It's such a shame, at 32GB I would have bought this immediately.. now I'll probably see if I can tolerate the EVO's size (I sure didn't before).. but we'll see.

I am not too thrilled about this. I prefer HTC devices, but it is still a great device. But was kind of hoping for an HTC nexus phone on sprint.Personal: Sprint Galaxy Nexus LTE, Nexus 7 16gb tablet

In the fine print on Sprint's page it says $399 2-year contract price -$200 instant rebate, which would make the phone $549 off contract when the $150 2-year contract discount is added in.
Which would also make the phone about $650-700 off contract at Best Buy

1- I own the Epic, love the hardware, hate the Samsung Software
2- It's GOOGLE'S phone.... Long term support?
3- Thinking about it, dual core? If google's phone is single core... are dual core phones going to be looked at over google's actual phone when they look to make new software? (Again, LTS)
Pure, no BS. No SD Card either. Bothers me... but I have the 16gb sd card and I'm no where near full unless I fill up movies. But it's not that serious. Swap back and forth.
I'm leaning towards buying 2 when I add a line. Of course, I am still looking deeply into that Evo 3D....
