Whatever your end decision might be, its a little distracting that you base your choices on things that are completely egocentric.
Why do you need a better camera?
Better than what? The Galaxy Nexus? A Nikon D4? Are you that ignorant to say you've never seen a good photo taken from a Galaxy Nexus? Really?
if you're that
good a photographer, you wouldn't be relying on your phone
to take amazing pictures. If you're taking all
your pictures with a camera phone, then quality was never part of your visual storyboard. Plus, there are enough filters that people use to "enhance" their pictures, with shitty camera phones. So who cares how good the camera "in your phone is"....its your phone.
When you say the speed
...the speed of what? the OS? Moving from home screen to home screen? How fast you get your email? You need stuff to move faster than Jelly Bean 4.1.2? The speed of the OS is just not quite up to snuff for you?
The fact that you might be comparing the speediness of a quad core chip to that of a dual core is laughable. Hey, my top of the line corvette is faster than the top of the line corvette last year...wow.
Looks are totally personal dude, so we'll leave it at that...Sounds like you're just trolling man...
But its late for me too, and I have some extra food...
p.s. I own a Nexus, and will happily wait for 4.2. What's that? I can still
put in a higher capacity battery in my phone, and
the headphone jack is in the right place?
