    Nexus phones are awesome. Fast OS updates are amazing but I'm sort of getting sick of it. The battery sucks and the camera is crap swell. This has been common to all the nexus devices released to date. I get updates quickly with my galaxy nexus but the last 3 updates have destroyed my experience. Battery life went from mediocre on ICS to complete and utter crap on JB, my WiFi hotspot is broken since 4.1.2 and the device has lags and stutters which weren't present 4.1.1 but are on 4.2.2. Sure I got the update quick but at what cost. I'm tempted to try something new like the S4/note3. If I'm feeling resent about updates, I'll just get the successor to the nexus 10 and replace my Xoom.

    Is it awesome or plagued with issues?

    The Nexus 4 camera is OK but not up to my note 2. The battery is on par with my S3 especially after the 4.2.2 update. I have had none of the issues you speak of on my nexus 4. While it will not be cutting edge when this new round of phones hit, it is still a very competent device.

    When you factor in the price of $350 unlocked to carrier AND getting key lime pie in May or June, it is a Great device! I may or may not pick up one of the new devices but hope to always have a Nexus.

    My Galaxy nexus was awesome on ICS, but now mostly because of software I'm beginning to hate the device, its almost as if the software updates are rushed out and the bug fix is sent to you 3 months later.
    The battery is just stupid, I browse forums and watch the percentage drop like a rock. A phone camera is only as good as the person using it, in great lighting I have been able to capture some decent photos, but dim the lights or use the flash and the whole image is ruined and doesn't look remotely realistic. There's a reason why all the images posted in the "Post Your Best Picture Taken" threads are shot outside in sunlight where a 8 year old Nokia could produce good pictures.

    The only really good thing about Nexus phones is the fast updates...i used to have the Nexus (Not the latest LG one but the previous one), and the camera quality was not great, and it wasn't all that fast. No MicroSD card killed me too. Maybe the LG one is better but I feel like the Galaxy series are better

    I have only had nexus android phones, and am accustomed to fast updates except on my tablet which is still on 4.0.4 but it doesn't bother me. Do you miss the quick updates from your previous nexus device?

    Hmm my GNex is running the best it ever has. I'm on Project Elite's 4.2.2 build from February. My wife is still on a CM 10.1 4.2.2 build from February. My battery life is way better than hers, so it may be software or kernel, but to be honest I haven't played with her settings much because she's a battery swapper anyways.

    He put an identical one in the HTC One forum and HTC is winning there. I'm really surprised that "Other" isn't winning on both.

    S4's got four times more vote than HTC One...
    If you put the same poll in the HTC forum, it'd be vise versa...
    I told you! On the HTC forum, the HTC One has nearly four times more votes than the Samsung! You owe me a backrub!

    As for me, I voted Samsung. HTC's speakers don't make a difference to me because I don't listen to music, and there is a Samsung loyalty going on in my family^.^
    My monitor, TV, my brothers S3... and now my father and I will be getting the S4

    After seeing the price of the Sony it will probably get negative sales...760 for the LTE version? They are nuts.

    Fast updates and vanilla android and no carrier bloat are the reasons to get a Nexus. It is worth it to me to have a nexus in the line up just for that reason. I do think Samsung phones are coming out remarkably bug free at least my S3 did and my Note 2 is just superb! The bloat gets so old though...I think I took 14 to 16 apps off my Note 2. ATT is just getting out of control on the bloatware. I wish Sammy would pull some clout and have att cut it back...but then again Sammy loads it up too.

    You MUST include the Nexus 5! I wonder if there is a better place to post this where we may be able to eliminate some bias. I voted for other, since you didn't include the Nexus 5.

    Out of the two, definitely the GS4 but if the Nexus 5 was available, that would be my choice.

    Oh no, I am in the Samsung Forum. That'll teach me not to just click on popular forums links. I feel so dirty... .

    Lol I wasnt sure if the new Nexus was coming this year or not
    The Nexus 4 is still a viable choice. For me it's a toss up between that and Z10. Of course BestBuy has non working model on display and AT&T's Z10 are locked in a demo mode.

    Very important to add Note 3, Nexus 5 and X Phone. All 3 are superior to each of the choices offered in my opinion, and like 3 of the 4, they're also not out yet
    The only one of those you can be 100% sure will be superior to all the phones listed is the Note 3, since it will be an upgraded S4. Nothing beyond roomers is known about the X Phone or Nexus "5". They may very well be better, or they me be worse, or they may fall right in line with the others.

    I think it's safe that we can infer based on the last two nexus devices that it'll be better than all spring/summer releases and it'll be quickly beaten the following spring by HTC and Sammy.
