    Build quality is what I'm talking about Samsung phones feel flimsy,people aren't saying it for no reason.
    And some disagree. Just because its light and made out of plastic doesn't not mean it feels flimsy to everyone. My HTC EVO felt a lot more flimsy with its cracked plastic, seperated screen, and paper thin battery door. The Nexus is a tank compared to the EVO.

    Flimsy? I highly doubt you've ever used a recent Samsung Android device on that word alone.

    Yeah, as I've said before, people pick them up and feel how light they are and somehow that turns into flimsy. Somehow they also equate HTC to quality eveb though the EVO had major hardware issues. I loves my EVO, but it was flimsy and fragile as hell

    Yeah although I mostly like my EVO, I was quite turned off in regards to the build quality. I dealt with the light leakage issue, but after my charging port stopped working after 3 months, I was beyond pissed. Now I'm willing to give any other manufacturer a shot.

    Yeah its funny because HTC has more issues with build quality than any other OEM I mean look at all those whose EVO screen's came apart and issues with the thunderbolt which had similar issues. I don't think because samsung uses plastic it has bad build quality I have used multiple samsung and htc and samsung has the better longevity build quality wise atleast with what I had.

    HTC's phones look and feel nice. My sis Inspire feels heavy and solid(at first) then after awhile i felt i couldn't hold it for to long or my wrist started hurting. Now this happens with my Epic too just after awhile of sitting. My wife's Evo is new so they fixed all those screen issues but still feels heavy. Sammy may not make the prettiest cases and I think that's what people are confusing with build Quality. IMO... There phones are powerful fast and solid. That's what I want out a phone.... Anything else is a perk but not necessary....

    my main concern, is that if it's on verizon, that they will try to pull some tricks to get them to load the typical VZW Bloatware and try to get them to lock the bootloader (good luck with that, verizon)

    yes but out of the box they feel like a cheap kids toy from wall mart. maybe i don't like holding devices that i feel like i am going to drop if i get sweaty palms, yeah, i know you can buy a rubber phone cover, but, my point still stands, ya know? most HTC phones have rubber or rubberized plastic on the back of them, the dinc did, and i know the dinc 2 has a rubber coating on the back of it.

    Lol, yeah kids toys that consistantly hold up better and are faster than HTC phones and their almighty build quality. Can someone please explain to me the difference between Samsung plastic ans HTC plastic? Maybe give me a logical reason why one is considered cheap and the other not? No one that is spoutng this nonsense has an explanation why. Only, "oh, well they just feel cheap." Lmao

    Okay, at least you elaborated more. You must have added it in as I was typing my last response. Okay, so you like soft touch plastic. I wouldn't mind that on the back of Samsung either, but its not a deal breaker for me. All I know is that the plastic on the EVO rivaled the Palm Pre in cappiness, so I'll give Samsung a shot. I didn't care for the plastic at first either, but I've come to appreciate the sleekness of their phones and how sturdy they are made

    The Nexus 1 is a tank compared to your Nexus.

    I can understand the bloatware comments, but where has there been an instance where Verizon has made it known that they want locked boot loaders? Isn't that up to the phone manufacturer?

    From what read that tank had a screen that wasn't that good. Also a weak processor lol ... What makes the Nexus so appealing is ICS and pure Google. I think if the Echo was the next Nexus People would love it lol ... I would like if Sammy went high Quality build and used another material other than plastic but its not going to stop me if they make this phone their way. If i can get this phone on Sprint and it comes in a reasonable amount if time I'll get it. If not then Nexus4 what are your specs...

    Absolutely right. If Sprint ever gets one of those HTC phones built like that, I'll be all over it. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem likely

    Then it wouldn't be a Nexus phone.

    Remember, the reason why Google makes Nexus phones is to promote new iterations of software (in this case, Ice Cream Sandwich) and make the phones available to developers to test out their applications on. If they lock the bootloader of a Nexus phone, it will make it irrelevant to a developer.

    If anything, Verizon wouldn't allow or would just reject a Nexus phone on their network (they did it with the N1, remember). But Phil says it's coming, so I'm hoping he's right. And if it comes, it will not be locked down.

    They said next nexus is coming to tmobile or sprint. Sprint would be great as they just announced their switch to lte and are the only company with true unlimited data which suits well with the google motto.

    they will more then likely reject it, day by day i really think verizon caters to the "new smartphone users" which, to them they could care less if the phone was rooted or not, they just want a working communication device (and in some instances an excuse to "look cool"). who knows, Verizon will be high on my respect list if they do.

    played with the nexus s before, kind of like it, and you are right, what means them great if you don't have to root them...it's sort of bone stock as it is :P

    but, maybe not, maybe they WON't load the bloatware on it, i know Sprint didn't with the nexus s, (being a nascar fan on sprint phones, the nascar app is probably the only one i wouldn't delete)

    They didn't load up the iphone with bloat. Just saying people are basing assumptions off of things in the past. Moto is the only ones who locks their phones it isn't verizon and also the nexus one was only available through google which carriers aren't making money that way which is why they went with the inc rather than the nexus 1. If Phil says it's coming to verizon he usually has a good source to base it off of

    Even if the phone is the same size, physically as a current 4.3 inch phone? Don't forget, that extra size is coming from the lack of hardware buttons.

    I agree, even the size of a current 4.3" phone is too big for a Nexus. I don't want the physical dimensions to ne bigger than the other Nexus phones
