    Can't Google create at least one Nexus that feels good in my hand - not like I'm holding a playing card by its edges? How about more like a DECK of cards? Think what they could do with the space:

    Two batteries, so you could swap one out while the phone keeps running on the other one.
    A camera with optical zoom.
    CDMA phones could have room for a Sim so they could work when you visit countries with only GSM
    Better antennas for better reception - particularly GPS.
    Storage for a stylus or maybe headphones
    Infrared transmitter to control TVs and Audio gear.

    And think how much better it would feel to hold.

    For some reason I imagined this is what you want folks to walk around like.

    How often are you expecting to hold the phone to talk to people? Personally, I use my phone more for games than anything.

    Then you'd just end up with a bunch of threads titled "This phone sucks! Way to thick!"

    All phones are thin and slippery. Put a case on it...you obviously don't mind it being a bigger size.

    a) CDMA is basically locked to a carrier. Defeats the idea of constant updates
    b) it looks nice with glass
    c) get another phone if you want CDMA
    d) most countries use GSM
    e) I don't want to replace phones each time i move to a different country
    f) I am just going through the alphabet
    g) most phones are moving away from swappable batteries because the poly-whatever they are are more reliable and it doesnt have to be rectangle shape.
    h) from what i have it has pretty decent antenna's built in but its not a satellite phone.
    i) you can attach a stylus with a string
    j) who wants head phones attatched to a mobile? maybe buy a case which holds it e.g like the ipod cases.
    k) infared... wow tooo hight tech. I think you can control tv's without it.

    Damn then you must carry a charger with you everywhere. The Nexus 4 burns through battery like crazy when I run any games. I don't even use it for games because of this. I need my phone for the purpose of a phone
