    you better buy a Nexus. OEMs are still responsible for these GPE devices. Just a heads up.

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. Google hasn't directly stated that the updates will be the sole resposibility of OEMs. They have, however, went on record with "On background, we will be working very closely with Samsung and HTC on future software updates for these devices and they will receive software updates shortly after a new version is released." Moreover, Android 4.3 for the GS4 GPE has already leaked, and the phone hasn't even been shipped to customers.

    Of course, nothing is as pure Android as a Nexus. However, as much as I wanted to like the Nexus 4, its oft-discussed shortcomings broke the deal.

    I agree. My nexus 7 is awesome, but I can't get a nexus 4 (big red). Stock android is amazing, and I think that the new Nexus 4 will blow the S4 GE and One GE out of the water, not necessarily in specs, but in updates, and cost! $300>$650

    As much as I wanted to love the Nexus 4, the lack of LTE, lack of a removable battery and lack of an expansion slot were deal breakers for me.
