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>

Perhaps this is what the TRUE Motorola flagship devices are waiting for.

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.

Everyone else thinks it's kit kat. Including the statue outside the Google building. I thought it was a joke too.

As far as I know, that is a trademarked name.  Google is really scraping the bottom of the barrel if it cannot come up with further generic sweet/desert names.

      Hello all,

      I have been visiting S4GRU for quite some time, and one of the most common issues I see popping up is confusion from users--especially when they first get 4G LTE devices and/or LTE service--regarding their signal strengths. For some reason, the signal bars on many devices do not display what most users expect them to display. It seems strange that we have to enter special dialer codes just to see what our LTE signal is!

      With that in mind, I started creating an Android app from scratch. I had never created an app before, so it took a few months before it was ready for the public, but its time has come. Robert and a few others have been beta testing it for me since October, and I recently released it onto Google Play. Robert gave me the go-ahead to give it a mention here on S4GRU, so here goes..

      It's called SignalCheck, and it is available on Google Play here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=Blue+Line+Computing
       
      The "Lite" version is free; the "Pro" version has a small one-time fee but includes a bunch of extras, including signal bars in the notification area, a widget, the ability to alert a user when they pick up an LTE or 800 SMR signal, one-button instant connection reset, the street address of the connected 1X site, and menu shortcuts to some screens that are usually only accessible with dialer codes. I intend to offer S4GRU Premier Sponsors special benefits in the near future, as soon as I figure out a feasible way to do that.

      This is the first app I have ever developed, so I'd appreciate any and all feedback, both positive and negative. I have been trying to educate myself as much as possible regarding cellular technologies, as I didn't know much before I started this project. My goal is to make this app as accurate and useful as possible for all the "nerds" on here.. myself included!

      I intend to continue squashing bugs as they are reported, and adding features as they are requested. As I learn more about Android programming and cellular technology, I'll improve things. Please let me know what you would like to see, and I'll do what I can.
       
      My "Beta Crew" helps test out the app before public updates are pushed out. Membership is by invite only but anyone is welcome to join in our discussions or get a sneak peek at what is going on (see thread here).

      Here are some screen shots from a previous version.. there have been tweaks since this release, but this is basically what you get:

      With the FCC and Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon have agreed to this new unlocking policy. How does this effect sprint phones such as the IPhone. I have heard that Sprint can unlock your phone but you can not take it to other carriers such as Verizon and the IPhone can only be used overseas.  (Correct me if I am wrong). I am glad that this has finally happened. But when it comes to Sprint how would this work?
