    My Motorola Milestone.

    Almost 2 years old, 256mb of ram and a locked bootloader but I'm still loving it!

    HTC Desire.

    Recently rooted it and flashed with the SuperNova ROM to allow apps to install and run from SD card which has given this great little device a new lease of life.

    The Nexus One was my first Android phone. Before that I was a blackberry / winmo user, and before that I used many other non "smart" phones.

    I've always used Nexus phones as I like the pure Android experience without 3rd party carrier overlays and bloatware. My primary phones are the Galaxy Nexus & the Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch.

    Nexus S. Fantastic piece of hardware but there's one thing that really bugs me and that's the mic voice quality, which sucks.

    Waiting for the next Nexus phone. If you really want to experience a clean Android installation without bloatware or playing around with custom roms Nexus phones are the way to go.

    The Samsung or HTC nexus one?

    Thats something I donīt pretty much like about HTC, they put their Sense software on it. I want to experience a clean Android OS.

    This is whats holding me back so far to get the HTC One. But hardware wise and features there is not another one which comes with 4.0 and has or is similar in features. Another thing I just hate about all this phones is how big they are. What is the smallest Android device available?

    I want something which is comfortable in the pocket. If I want such a big thing I would get a tablet.

    All the previous nexus phones were HTC including the nexus one.

    Hello,
    As am Android Consoeur <<cough fanboy>>, I typically like to stay as stock as possible. All of my phones are HTC because I like the button layout and build quality. All of my devices are rooted and running CyanogenMod. There is something about Sense 4 that I am really liking. It is not as in-your-face as Sense 2 and 3. I plan on getting the HTC EVO 4G LTE and trying sense before resorting to aftermarket ROMS... of course it will still be rooted

    Droid 1, then I got an Droid 2 Global, traded that for an HTC Incredible, then traded the incredible for a Droid X, after a few months, traded the Droid X for a Thunderbolt, thunderbolt broke so I switched to a BlackBerry, then my contract came up for renewal, so I just got an HTC Rezound, and I loaded the latest ICS leak for it, so far, this thing is amazing.

    The Galaxy Nexus is pretty much similar to the HTC One X. Htc One X just has a slightly better camera and Tegra 3.

    If you want the full Android experience, get a Nexus phone.

    Best thing about Android is you get to have a lot of choices when it comes to phones.

    I have 4.6, 4.3 and a 3.7 inch phones, and after getting used to a 4.6 inch phone, the 3.7 inch one feels very uncomfortable.

    A 3.0 inch Xperia Mini?

    To be honest, my phone is a 4.3 inch screen, and it fits into a standard jeans pocket with no issues.

    The nexus is not really that similar to the One X other than size and that it runs Android. It's quite different in fact. The CPU/GPU, camera functionality, body material and build, battery, OS overlays, audio integration, all different than the Nexus. The nexus is just pure android.

    The One X is geared for a totally different experience, although AOSP ROMs will be out before you know it. I'm sure the CM9 betas are already being worked on.

    So if you want plain vanilla android get a nexus, but you really can't compare the phone to the One X as it's MUCH newer and totally different.

    Yes but I can get the HTC One S for almost the same price as the Samsung Nexus (500$ range), and I get a better camera and a better body material.

    I already have a HTC and another Samsung Focus, the HTC feels like a quality military phone, the Focus, very nice with its Amoled Screen stills feels like a cheap plastic phone. I dropped it only twice in 1 year and parts of the plastic case are damaged.

    I already have a 5 Mega pixel camera so going to 8 is a big upgrade for me. The Nexus looks great, but I donīt like the Google brand name on the back. Sure, Android is Google but I donīt like t-shirts that put their big branding name either on my physical person, im a human, not a walking brand. Just like GAP cloth which I hate for the same reason. I donīt need to show what I wear regardless if its a phone or a t-shirt.

    I donīt plan to do Google branding, unless they pay me for it, so honestly even if the phone looks very nice I really dislike that big ugly Google name on the back of the case.

    I do love the Google brand, but not to endorse it 24/7 everywhere I go.

    I actually own allot of Samsung stuff and I really like them but in phones honestly I think HTC means more quality, the phone can be dropped, Samsung phones are neat devices but I donīt think they can take the same...

    Its a hard decision for sure.

    I feel liike you're over thinking it a little bit. All of these phones are already carrier & OEM branded. The google logo is not so much an advertisement as it is a badge of honor and exclusivity. The Nexus line is google branded as it is Google's primary phone for development. The nexus gets all true OS updates first, and it gets a TRULY PURE android experience. The up to the minute development is more than worth a small sacrifice of functionality for many users, but it's all up to what you want and need in the end.

    A simple phone case covers all the branding easily, so I don't really see that as an acceptable reason in not getting the Nexus.

    Also HTC is known for the solid heft of their phones, but they are not any more reliable than Samsung statistically speaking. Samsung takes a different route in their modern phones. They use light weight materials to go for a super thin and light experience. At the same time their phones now are MORE durable than the heavier HTC phones, and it is much easier to replace scuffed or damaged plastic parts. If you drop the heavier HTC phones you are almost guaranteed to have some serious and expensive issues.

    I am slightly biased towards Samsung (but only as their devices perform better for my needs) right now, but that may change if HTC starts making some changes to their quality control & the way they actively block 3rd party OS development. If you have owned any HTC phone since the EVO 4G you know what I'm talking about on the quality control. Many of their phones have different color palettes, yellow tinted whites, poor black/grey, crooked screen placements, light bleeding, etc. The most recent phones seem to be getting a bit better though, but QC is still a concern. Even their new flagship One X has serious hardware problems with the screen which causes flickering and other issues.

    As soon as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus was released on TELUS! here in Canada, I bought it on launch day. Even leaving between my shifts in order to get my hands on it.

    Have been in love with it ever since.

    Yes, or it was?

    Its really lacking quality lately. Like I said before on this post I was getting the HTC One S, but this turned me off completely:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1589364&page=1

    Buyers are reporting its losing its coating 5 minutes after its in the pocket. This is not bad, but awful. We are not talking about months of use, just a few days.

    This shows HTC did not even made a basic real field testing of their new ceramic technology. Even basic quality testing would have discovered this. Also, now that I think of it, a very thin phone is bad if its round on the corners as its slips out of the hands. This is why the iPhone is a square as well.

    Its seems HTC designs their phone in papers but donīt even test their products on real usage. Im researching both HTC One X and S for 2 weeks now. The HTC One X has serious battery problems and it makes sense, its also to big for my taste and to expensive. . People are also reporting several issues on both phones which shows poor quality build.

    On the end what can we expect. HTC is Chinese, Samsung is from Korea, so even if their phones are all cheap plastic they are build better in terms if quality. Apple is USA. Nokia is Finland, Sony is Japan, but they purchased Ericsson which had the best phones ever.

    Finally after really, really wanted to get the HTC One S even after all the problems I read online I started to search for alternatives. I do own another HTC and a Samsung as well so I know their quality is great but its an older phone.

    I think I will go with a Japanese phone instead of Chinese. Xperia S from Sony. I was not even aware this phone existed. The price is the same as the HTC One S but you get more for the price. It compares almost to the HTC One X in specs but its 200$ cheaper. Plus I donīt want a Quad Core phone ever, unless they invent better battery technologies.

    Xperia vs HTC One S, processors are the same, even when HTC One S has a bit newer ones. Screen size is the same but Xperia is smaller in the hands, just its not as thin but that's not negative as you can hold it better. The camera is way better, 12 Megapixels vs 8. Not to mention I can say from experience that HTC cameras suck.

    It has NFC, it has HDMI !!! Battery is bigger. Screen quality is way better as well and the design is nice as where HTC phones look all the same.

    Reviews are talking excellent about this phone but its not getting as much press as HTC or Samsung. Also the Xperia has 32 GB memory vs 16 GB. A big plus as well. If you compare them specs wise I think the Xperia is a better value for the same money.

    Not to mention Sony has very nice addons for the phone, like the docking station which charges the phone and connects it to the TV automatically. Or the smart watch, very nice.

    Sony is already sending ICS to this phone so that will not be a problem either. So finally I think I will just get this one instead of the HTC One S. I donīt want to beta tests HTC new products, sure they will fix things eventually and they will improve them, but its going to take months.

    And honestly about the ceramic issue reported I donīt think this can be fixed, they will improve the process but after some months Im sure people will suffer the same, as the coating canīt really stick forever to the phone. You can just imagine how the phone will look like in months. Stores in Europe are already getting massive returns on this phones.

    Of course I'm still open to suggestion guys.

    The only Adroid device I had was Samsung Galaxy S, but since then I really dont trust them. It's just running too poor out of the box IMO to be my primary phone 24/7.. maybe now with One X I get back, we shall see.
