No, not a chance. I'm saying that pocket sizes have shrunk even on relaxed style jeans as a result of the skinny jean influence. No way am I wearing nuthuggers.

I find it hard to jam my hand in my pocket to get my phone out in time to answer. Maybe my hands are just big and I need to get my pockets tailored

Here's what I want from Verizon: ability to put an LTE-only SIM into an unlocked phone, and activate it.

Here's what I want from Google: An unlocked Nexus with LTE to put said SIM card in.

Is that too much to ask? The fact that the only cross-network flagships are iPhones and Galaxies is annoying to me.

It looks thicker than I would have expected based on (admittedly speculative) mock-ups I've seen.

You said you wished the Nexus was on all carriers. The Galaxy Nexus has that ability.


Sure you are boo boo QQ about the non gsm Galaxy Nexus but I personally haven't had issues

Chances are that is not the S4. Remember last time around they stuffed the S3 into a dummy housing (which leaked) but they kept the real device out of the media until launch. I don't see why it would be different this time around.

S3 is 4.8 and s4 is 5 not that big of a jump.

And big phones are the thing now. People like them.

The Verizon Galaxy Nexus has horrendous battery life (Even with the Samsung extended battery), awful reception and is extremely slow to receive updates. I know because I've had it.

While I dislike the lag and AMOLED screen on my RAZR MAXX HD, the reception and battery life are nothing short excellent.... Something Samsung has struggled with (except the Note 2).

Almost all of the android phones outside of a few(like the maxx) have bad battery life. That's nothing new and not isolated to only the Vzw Galaxy Nexus. Lol come on man.

Ya its lame that Vzw plays games with the updates but oh noes... You have to wait for an update.... Boo hoo.

If you are that impatient root and get updates.

I have the extended battery, and I personally don't suffer from the reception problems you speak of. I think you are over reacting just a bit. Sure not everyone has to like the phone but it's not the life altering first world problem pit of doom you make it out to be in your rants
