    Default Nexus and ICS vs Other 4.3" screens

    Although some complain about the actual screen of tne GN being 4.3 by the time you take into account the softkeys, is this only because of pure ICS? Will the new crop of phones with 4.3" screens end up being 3.8", and how about current next gen phones with sense (rezound). If that was the case, Id take my GN with tge 4.6 over a slightly faster processor with a smaller screen

    Phones like the Rezound and other HTC devices wont lose screen size, because the soft keys aren't part of the the display. they are off the screen. So 4.3 will remain as the display.

    I am almost positive that the current phones won't have the soft keys on the screen, however I saw a picture of the Asus PadPhone I think and it had both the phone keys and the soft keys. The only thing I could think is that the PadPhone just had an early build of ICS and they hadn't updated it yet.

    I thought the same, although if you end up with both physical buttons and soft buttons, oh boy is that going to be a PR nightmare.

    I'm interested in knowing what the Nexus S owners with ICS builds are experiencing.

    Soft keys are not required with ICS. The Nexus S will not have them on screen. ICS will be able to accommodate devices with existing dedicated buttons by doing away with the soft keys.

    Also see Huawei upcoming offerings with ICS. No soft keys are present...only off screen capacitive buttons.

    Have you watch a video? The screen is full size with no soft buttons. Even if every other program does not use the space, this is a nice feature.

    Correct. Watching youtube or a movie with the built-in apps removes the soft buttons and expands the screen.
