    Metropcs+Galaxy Nexus ?

    Ok so a new article recently came up about how the Galaxy Nexus was reveiled and one of the carriers listed to maybe get the phone on the sign up sheet was Metropcs ? Its not likely that Metro will see this phone but you never know we might just see the newest ICS phone coming to metro as the Nexus is an CDMA/LTE phone.

    In the mean time, it looks like Samsung’s U.S. sign-up page has gone live and not only is Verizon listed as a carrier for the Galaxy Nexus one in the region but we have six others. The Big Four U.S. carriers, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile are joined by smaller fishes like U.S. Cellular, MetroPCS and Cellular South, also known as C Spire

    If this is true I'll be the happiest person ever, and I'll know that holding out on the LG Esteem and keeping my indulge was definitely worth it!! Is this phone LTE capable?

    all I can say about the Galaxy Nexus is that you better have your charger and extra batteries with you at all times.
    super amoled screen, dual core processor, LTE, extra large screen. Each one of these things eat battery like crazy and they got all of them rolled up into this phone. They kept the phone rather thin meaning less room for a battery to power all of this stuff.


    Only thing that the galaxy nexus has that I would have liked to have on my Esteem is NFC. But I don't really mind it that much because NFC has not caught on yet. It will probably take a year or two for it to catch on and for developers to start making apps for it(even though its been in a few phones for a while already).

    I figure by the time NFC becomes popular and Google rolls out Google wallet to any android phone, I'll be upgrading to a new phone anyways.

    I would darn go urinate on myself if this phone really is coming to Metro.
    Oh, and didn't Google say that they wanted to make ICS available for all? I remember an article saying how Google wants all android phones to be in the same level (one can't be Froyo while the other is ICS) so maybe the Nexus available for many carriers a way of keeping things clean with android...

    itialianpony : yes it is lte capable

    wagonis : nobody did but dual core processor 5mpx w'flash , super-amoled 4'5 screen ? compared to the esteems specs nd ics 4.0

    miketoolz - theres always an extended battery

    needhelp - ithink we might see this phone just in time for the holidays

    danny - yes exactly google wants everythin to be the same so theres a big chance we might see the phone

    ::: also you guys have to remeber that android competes with iphone nd c wire will get the iphone so google will do the same and maybe bring the phone to small carriers ::

    Our LG Esteem has 4.3" screen, not 4.0", if that's what you are saying. We also have 5megapix with flash camera, with 1.3 front camera -- just like the Galaxy Nexus. So, it's a tie there.

    And the Galaxy Nexus has 4.65" screen, not 4.5"

    But yeah, 1.2 GHz dual core CPU is better than the Esteem.

    And it has a 1750 mah battery -- which our phone SHOULD have but doesn't. Also the Nexus has 1GB RAM.

    Just to be clear, we are talking about the Galaxy Nexus (newest), not the Samsung-manufactured Google Nexus S (released a few months ago). For a minute I was confusing the two.

    =========

    EDIT:

    Oh, I see, you didn't want to type out Android 4.0 or "Ice Cream Sandwich". So, it has 4.0 compared to our Gingerbread 2.3.

    It will come to Verizon first, then we'll get it several months later -- just like the LG Revolution/Esteem. Here ya go:

    CDMA/LTE specs (no AWS)
    http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Sam...us-CDMA_id6135

    =======


    also it's very pricey. Without a contract, $850 is the current quoted price. And that's for the "small" 16GB version, not the 32GB version. I think you should wait a few months until the price comes down....

    Your creed may be interesting, but your deeds are much more convincing.

    Wow this phone looks cool. Too bad its soo pricey. Did you know there is a sign up page to request this phone for your cell phone carrier and MetroPCS is on the list. Samsung just taken a count of how many people show interest and maybe it will go the cell carrier of your choosing.
    I did a Google search by typing samsung dot com /USA / register / {Name of phone here} Its the first one in the search results. Maybe if we all fill the form out it will come to MetroPCS sometime.

    Seems like Samsung has my ip address when i filled out the form.(this is to prevent people from filling out the form several times) I will just log on another computer in another area to fill the form out again. LOL

    Camera specs are not the same. Megapixel count does not make a camera good or bad. The Galaxy Nexus also has zero shutter lag and better lenses (Samsung is known to make some of the better cell phone cameras next to Apple and Nokia.) It also shoots vids in full 1080p at 30fps.
    I wouldn't mind having this phone but, I just got this Esteem and don't plan on switching any time soon. As for the price, I agree it won't be that much if it ever comes to Metro. The Revolution is a $700 phone off contract.

    Contract companies price thier phone a lottt higher to push people into the contract. If the revolution was $350 off contract or $199 on contract for $150 im aure half the people would just pay full price and go on monthly. Nexus seems like $400 realistic imo

    Yes indeed this is true if the Galaxy Nexus is priced a 850 off metro would sell it 300-500 or somewhere aroud that range

    Keep in mind folks, the Ice Cream Sandwich update is being guaranteed by SAMSUNG. We LG folk technically have no reason to emote by this news unless we are considering a future/compatible SAMSUNG device.

    Motorola is the only other company that KINDA said ONE of their devices will also get Ice Cream Sandwich.
