I want to know more....Is it going to be from Motorola or will it be Samsung....Is it going to be the biggest screen or just a run of the mill size (4.8-5)...will it be a heavy hitter on specs or is the manufacturer going middle of the road (save on costs) and the pure Andriod experience....DOES ANYONE KNOW ANYTHING (lol)....

After seeing the apple keynote for iOS 7, i would like to see some improvements to Google Now in terms of being able to "turn off/on bluetooth" or "read my last voicemail." I think more improvements to project butter and RAM usage will hopefully help with battery life. I would like to see an anti-theft mechanism similar to what apple has in iOS 7.

If Google can optimize their os to the level of ios, Apple would be hurting even more. Apple's iPhone 5, with a 1440 mAh battery is on par in the battery department as Android devices running 2000+. I'm thinking it's a lot harder to achieve on android because of all of the third party skins android comes with. (sense, touch wiz, blur, etc.)

I am not asking for Android to be optimize to the level of iOS especially since the hardware is not being designed by Google.  I think it would be very hard to emulate what Apple is doing but that doesn't mean that Android can't improve on power optimization with the latest Linux kernel.  It has been one of the ongoing issues with Android from the beginning and making strides every year will help it more. I want better battery life for me and not for more market share.  Android has enough market share in the mobile space.  

 

I also disagree that a better battery life will hurt Apple sales even more.  People like Apple and iOS because of its simplicity, ecosystem and integration with other apps.  I don't see Apple's market share going down especially with the improvements to iOS 7 that brings a lot of Android features.

Just FYI, Android will never be as efficient "pound for pound" as iOS due to its apps being interpreted/Just-in-Time compiled (from Froyo on) vs. Apple's (and I believe Windows Phone's) compilation. They can get close though, skins or no skins.

If Samsung is smart they'll use this as leverage during the appeal process and/or counter apple for patent infringement..who is copying who now?..<G>

If the next Nexus were a Motorola with high end specs (like the LG N4) and LTE all for the same 349 we see the N4 at I would snap it up in a heartbeat! (and it would be THE Android I've been wanting for years) Even if it's another LG I'll probably still go after it drooling. 

 

After experiencing Android the first time through Touchwiz and then just recently going back to iOS I think I'll stick with iOS and stock Android/Nexus devices from now on.

    • Here is how many competitive permits are "remaining" in each state after round 27: (bonus points: reply with the states/territories/districts that are already "settled".) AL 4 AR 1 AS 2 AZ 5 CA 2 CO 53 DE 2 FL 5 GA 48 GU 3 HI 3 IA 40 ID 19 IL 7 IN 19 KS 113 KY 22 LA 9 MA 3 MD 11 ME 1 MI 48 MO 54 MP 10 MS 27 MT 33 NC 12 ND 22 NE 8 NH 1 NJ 2 NM 26 NV 17 NY 6 OH 24 OK 9 OR 2 PA 2 PR 1 SC 12 SD 47 TN 17 TX 36 UT 23 VA 8 WA 22 WI 22 WV 2 WY 11
    • Almost 89% and $250 Million after round 27.
    • Pace picks up a bit.  Round 23.  About 86% now "uncontested" and $223 Million total.  Down to 159 licenses without bids.
    • https://www.lightreading.com/5g/the-quiet-brilliance-of-t-mobiles-5g-spectrum-strategy/a/d-id/779589? Basically Money savings on 2.5 mostly rural auction are funding 600MHz purchases.  Also mentions continuing purchases of 2.5 outright. Likely understates the amount of MHz. Auction going slightly faster with 4 auction sessions per day now, but still less than 80% "settled".  After 18 rounds it is at $190 Million, with $400 to $800 Million expected. could go on for another month.  check here for updates about 1 hour after each round: https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
    • Yeah, I went up to Kitsap on Friday. Was able to connect to several n41 sites as SA only in Port Orchard, Bremerton and Silverdale.  However, I could not get any throughput.  It would say Mobile Data Suspended.  n41 NSA would throughput just fine. Was pushing 500-800 Mbps. I don't know if it was the network at the time or my device causing the failure for data throughput. It was the exact same result on every site I connected to.  I'm on a normal Tmo Postpaid SIM.  Nothing unusual.  LG V60. Robert n41 SA   n41 NSA
