    @black_man_x: people awaiting nexus.. lemme spoil it. Battery sucks.. screen is too colorful/big..doesn't print money and it wont even clear up back ache

    I heard similar from someone who allegedly developed it or at least handled it.

    Was Panda just stirring the pot? I wouldn't be surprised if battery life was abysmal due to LTE.

    Sounds really sarcastic. Screen is too big and colorful? Doesn't print money? Or help backaches? Only the battery criticism sounds real but coupled with the rest of the post...who knows.

    Let me respond with a "duh" question...
    How's the battery life in your Thunderbolt? Mine was drastically improved when I flashed a custom kernel. Since ICS will be open source, kernel source will be released and devs will be hard at work overclocking on undervolting the processor in no time.

    I find it a bit ridiculous to read in to such a twitter post. It's obviously sarcastic in nature. Maybe the only thing true is the battery life statement, but the whole sentence reeks of sarcasm. I'm sure he is just messing around, "trolling" for whatever reason. Just wait. I'm sure we will know what's up with this device in less than 2 weeks. Latest rumor is that new invites are going out by Friday for the unveiling of ICS and this new Nexus. We've waited this long...we can wait just a bit more.

    I was expecting the battery issues, tbh....

    The screen is noticeably bigger than every other 4g on the market, and doesn't have the benefit of the battery saving rgbw pentile like the Bionic which STILL had people crying about the battery.

    Luckily one of my biggest complaints with currrent phones is that they are making them too light/thin and generally flimsy "feeling".... So I fully plan on slapping the biggest, fattest, highest capacity battery I can in that thing..... I may just end up with an 80s phone when I'm done, but I will find a way to get 10hrs off the charger with at least 2-3 of that watching movies (train commute).


    EDIT: as far as "too colorful" I was hoping Samsung would have included the ability to manually tone it down, like on the GSII.... Hopefully that feature can reach the Prime as well.

    I think he is just commenting on people's wildly high expectations of the phone.. I'm super excited for the Nexus Prime, but I'm reserving my commitment to buy until more "official" information is released.

    I agree that he's probably just being sarcastic considering how much he's been praising the phone.

    DAT TRIPLE POST.

    OT: I need a new phone, I'm planning on buying this regardless. My Droid has been nice to me over these past two years but it's falling apart and becoming laggy.

    Panda seems to be shockingly accurate about devices not yet released. I believe its vzw devices only, but I'm not sure about it. When I was looking on info for the thunderbolt, their name kept coming up frequently with info on it. I had never heard of them while I was on Sprint.

    I just read some of his tweets but does he work for engadget or some website like panda.com?

    He used to work for Verizon and now works for Google. Very reliable but likes to be ambiguous or playful at times. He's not anonymous to his employer so expect a certain amount of promotion & censorship from time to time. I miss his blog.

    Thanks, Robrecht

    I would say he's joking.

    I've been running an SGSII Epic 4G Touch since launch, the battery life on this thing has been simply incredible. Despite the Nexus Prime's slightly increased specs, it's also rumored to have a larger battery as well. Plus, Samsung phones are known to have the best battery life among Android phones.

    Can't wait to get more info on this device.

    It was obviously meant to be a joke. If the "doesn't print money" line doesn't give it away...well then, I just don't know what to say.

    Also his latest tweet...

    Sorry that Android people can't take a joke... Seems that my nexus joke is affecting people.. Relax. It does print money...
