How is this phone's screen (WXGA IPS) compared to the Galaxy S3's screen? Thanks.
Samsung's recent S3 line, as well as the Galaxy nexus has the AMOLED pentile screen, which is eh... images can freeze (you'll see ghost images, like on a plasma), and it can be grainy. IPS is the way to go IMO.
Get a RAZR MAXX HD for now and get the Motorola Nexus next year around this time with LTE and Android 5.0
Might as well wait a few more years when they have 5G speeds

Don't buy from buy.com (now known as rakuten.com). They failed to honor the rebates from Hanns, connect3d... etc that was advertised!! You have been warned.
I could care less about no LTE, no removable storage, etc.... however....
NON REMOVABLE BATTERY THIS TIME!
I know. I was going to sell my Galaxy Nexus (w/ a spare stock battery) and found out about this. For those who plan on buying those portable chargers and carry these with them and for those who plan on selling their Nexus 4 when the Nexus 5 come out, it probably wouldn't be a deal breaker since the battery will still hold up for the buyer to be interested in. Not sure if these batteries will perform well on it's 2nd/3rd year of life though the Nexus 4 will probably be selling for less than $100 in two year's time.
But having a spare battery (if coupled with an external charger) is sometimes more convenient.

No LTE is a boon for me. HSPA+ and LTE speeds are pretty similar where I am. LTE may have a bit of an advantage, but why do I need 50mbps vs 30mbps on a phone? LTE is a battery drainer. I'd love to get back to HSPA+ and save some battery life.
TU for no contract deal, but damn Google, throw a brother a bone with the mSD slot (there were rumors that it might have one)...
Yeah, yeah, cloud storage and all that crap. I've got a 32gb mSD slot on my current Android phone and only have about 2gb free. No movies at all. Some music, some pics, about 1gb of installed apps on the SD and backups/ROMs.
Seems like LG should drop the price on their Nexus4 clone...
i understand your frustration but an mSD slot means added costs to the phone thanks to the royalties google will have to pay MicroSoft. I guess its subjective but personally I think it's a very small price to pay...especially when you get 16 gb already...
