    It looks.... well, like any other phone that I'd expect by now. Remarkably unremarkable.

    I ended being a phony and got the the Galaxy S4 on contract when it was launched since my old phone was out of commission. I think this has the potential to be the phone to get if it's still a reasonable price off contract.

    Eh, good improvement on the old one. Nothing new though.

    I couldn't care less if it were to have some fantastic, knock your socks off feature that just blows everyone's mind. I just want the usual from nexus. A good phone with hardware specs that match the other flagship offerings at a price you don't feel like you're getting ripped off at. But feel free to spend hundreds more so that your videos pause if you look away from your screen. Thats just not me.

    I just want a phone/text messaging that has good signal everywhere, and long battery life. They don't exist because manufacturers/cell providers would rather implement BS features, than make them ideal for any location or time frame.

    I couldn't agree more. While it's all very nice having all the bells & whistles, how many of these features do we actually use or really want. They just add to the cost. All I want is a decent sized quality screen with the features you mentioned. I personally couldn't care less about giga pixel cameras & fingerprint readers etc.

    Those are called feature phones and most carriers still have a few to choose from. If you want long battery life then a smartphone is not what you want to be looking at (no not even the iPhones are that great) you want to look at basic feature phones that can last almost forever on one charge.

    Let me put it this way, we were forced to buy a data plan when there was not any phones available that didn't require data services (or so we were told). I don't need data services but since they are implemented in every phone, we don't really have a choice now do we?

    Isn't it strange how the market forces us the direction we had no intention of going in the first place, then we just have to accept it. **sigh**
