Slim phone makes me wonder if an extended life battery will be available. 1750 mAh isn't a lot for heavy LTE use.

So none of the important questions have been addressed yet? Is the battery removable? Is there an SD card slot? Is it metal or plastic build?

Getting tired of these big screen phones. How about something super thin like the RAZR with all the bells and whistles in a 4"? These bricks are getting ridiculous.

I got the impression that the 5 MP camera was somehow related to the zero shutter lag goal. I know this has been mentioned many times, but, a camera's ability to increase the total number of pixels in a photograph really is not a good indicator of the quality of the photographs. I have seen many photographs taken with an iPhone 4 (5 MP camera) that look better than the 8 MP camera on my Evo 4G. If they took the exact same camera that we saw on the iPhone 4 (obviously they will not, but hypothetically speaking) and put it into the Galaxy Nexus, that would be enough for me. The fact that it does 1080p video capture, allows for zooming while recording video, and has no shutter lag implies to me that this could be an even better 5 MP camera than the one we saw on the iPhone 4. If that is the case, I feel great about the camera. If not, I am confident it will be, at a minimum, serviceable compared to my current Evo 4G camera.

It does has notification light. But not sure whether it is multi-color LED screen. From the video it seems like an LED blinking (green color) inside the body (not like a projection)

The hidden LED Notification light near the front microphone looks awesome. Sad thing is that I like to put a phone in a holster and my DX has a little cutout where you can still see the light, something like this, I do not see that happening.

Also, I thought I heard something about an inductive charging back somewhere, but no mention during the stream...

So are any apps going to scale properly with this? I keep hearing of problems with the qhd phones and this is yet another resolution.. Are most apps going to run with black borders on all sides or be stretched and look like crap?

MP is only one variable involved in good pics. Lens, software, sensor, shutter also contribute. Look at iPhone.

Somebody that knows frequencies better than I do please confirm this looks good to go for T-Mobile. I'm in love.

Well yea. If you saw the feed it said there would be like a whole new level of nfc with the beam technology. I'm paraphrasing of course.

After a two week long iOS love fest, I am so glad Google delivered a device that truly feels like the future, not one that barely refines its past iterations. iPhone 4S looks like a toy next to this thing.

Someone ask Siri how it feels being upstaged.

Yea, except you and I know that the media will not come close to covering this phone like they anything with a lower case "i" in front of the name. Very sad since this thing is awesome.

So specs don't seem better than the Galaxy 2 EPIC Touch 4G. In someone areas even worse then the Epic Touch 4G. Just glad I have the Epic Touch 4G.

I'm disappointed that you couldn't squeeze one more Epic Touch 4G in your sentence. By the way, I own the Epic Touch 4G and I must say that I do not feel bad about not waiting for the Galaxy Nexus. Just hope my Epic Touch 4G gets some ICS love. Oh by the way, Epic Touch 4G. See, that's how its done.

I have to say, as ugly as it is (in my opinion), the Droid RAZR seems more appealing to me than this! Maybe that's just it, as an owner of the Nexus S, maybe I'm just tired of the same design...? I do think the Galaxy Nexus is a great device but I am a disappointed that Samsung has kept the same design as the previous Nexus phone.

Since there is no sd card Verizon is probably gonna charge a ridiculous off contract price for the 32Gb version

That's a page from Apple's book that I'd really prefer Android phones not follow.

Price difference for every 16GB bump on an iPhone is $50-100. Meanwhile, you can buy a 16GB microSD for $20-30.

When he said 32 GB expandable, he f***ed up, it means there will be 32 GB versions along with the 16 gig versions

Post a vid of someone popping a Micro SD card in and out of this phone THEN I will believe it. Until then, this reporters video is wrong.

I like this phone, it just seems like Samsung is trying to make phones just like the iBrick. Removing options for microSD cards, lower MP cameras (I know MP isn't everything, find a way to make the higher MP camera good), and their touchwiz interface. Its like a clone. Not sure I like that.....
