    I have tried the on screen buttons on my nexus. And have played with them on the galaxy nexus in the sprint store. I absolutely hate them. I will NEVER pay money for a phone that has the on screen buttons.
    Isn't 'buttonless' the model for future phones shipping with ICS?

    I remember when people including me said that they would never get a phone without a keyboard. And now I am here, and I don't regret it. It just takes getting use to like everything in life.

    Some days, I wish I still had a physical keyboard, but most days, nah, even with the many predictive text errors that both Swype and Swiftkey make when I use them. Which brings me to another subject that I may post a new subject on.

    The Nexus S has a single-core chip, 1/2 the memory, 1/2 the storage and significantly lower screen resolution than the GNex. They aren't even in the same hardware class as each other.

    But you know what, we've been running ICS with no problems. We haven't had anywhere near the signal problems and other things that have plagued the GN so for an old dog device I'd say were doing very well

    That goes to show you the longevity of a Nexus device. They are great investments, but how long before the next Nexus after the GNex comes out? At least a year.

    Rumors are saying Nexus 4, around November... If Sammy has watched and learned the next Nexus will be a much better update than the GN was. Even Sammy's own SGSII is ranking higher in many areas than the GN so you know they already have the better technology on tap in other Samsung devices.

    That is it for my comments, these opinion/poll threads go back and forth with no ending

    November is a long time away. I am hoping for a Moto Nexus!

    I always thought Nexus phones COULDN'T be too feature packed because they had to fit a certain "Google spec". They're not made to be killer phones, just good enough to be a standard "development" phone.

    Yes that is why I love the Nexus S 4G. It is still relevant after all these dual-core (eventually quad-core devices) because of the wonderful software devs create for this device!

    You forgot to make another option for your poll: Verizon Galaxy Nexus.

    After more than 10 years with Sprint, I switched to Verizon and got the Galaxy Nexus. The phone was only $99 through Amazon, and my monthly bill is actually going to be about $30 LESS. I'm SO glad I switched! Sprint gambled on WiMAX, amd it ended up being like Betamax lol. It is going to be a while before 4G LTE coverage is very widespread on Sprint. The other thing, is that Verozon's 4G is FFFFAST! Compared to the Nexus S 4G I had on WiMAX. Hell, it's fast compared to the Comcast cable Internet I have at home. You just wouldn't believe how fast it is, and how much coverage they have across the country. Oh, yeah... It also has the official ICS of course. Got totally sick of waiting for that to drop on the Sprint Nexus S. I don't want to root. Last thing.... Verizon's 3G is SO fast compared to Sprints 3G. Night and day speed difference.

    Anyway, if you DO wait for the one in Sprint, it's a great phone, but Sprints 4g network is a real downer.

    It's not my choice to pick which carrier I want to be on, it's my dad's. Anyhow, both Sprint and Verizon don't have 4G here in my town and aside from the 3G speed difference where I live, it's negligible. Another thing to mention is that I'm on wifi quite often so data speed isn't a huge problem for me.

    I'd stick to the s4g. Save your cash. After unlocking, the device is like new and great fun messing around with ROMs.

    Yup I am . Also, now that I have CM9 on my Epic 4G, it has breathed new life into it!

    I have to agree... as much as I like the idea of unlimited data and cheaper plans, the more I'm travelling, the more I'm finding out just how limited Sprint is in my neck of the woods. I get decent cell and mediocre data from home and work, as does my wife- but if we visit any county outside of LosAngeles county, data is questionable often, and sometimes the signal drops to roaming or 1 bar. Also, my home neighborhood has become a near dead zone, so much so that I asked for an airrave- which has helped a bit. That's pretty unacceptable. My parents are on verizon and we're now considering joining them on a family plan... it'd still be more money and limited data- but 4gb is more than enough for each of us...as long as I keep my streaming podcasts to a minimum at lunchtime. Still holding off and debating...

    That said, this latest issue about CDMA carriers holding up google OTAs really has me questioning just how much better we are with a nexus on CDMA vs. a non nexus. It's been WAY longer than I expected Sprint to push ICS. And I don't see Verizon being any better. Shame I have ZERO faith in ATT or Tmobile's networks... I like the idea of being on a GSM phone better - but the reality of their network in my experience here is no better than sprint or worse.

    Get Verizon, and the Galaxy Nexus. You'll be glad you did. I did about a month ago, switching from Sprint. Also, they have a promotion right now. I just upgraded from 4 gigs with mobile hotspot, to 6 gigs with mobile hotspot for the exact same price.

    I burn through 20 gigs a month... No way could I switch to any plan that's not unlimited.
