I'll take the nexus 5, it will probably be a tegra 4 quad core cortex a15, it would be a serious powerhouse. This phone is also very nice but the tegra 4 will kill it, those chips are out in Q1 2013 and faster ones available in Q3 2013 so i'd expect a nexus 5 this time next year with one of those most likely.

Good price but storage is limited and lack of LTE is a problem. No reason for me to switch from a GS3.

I don't mind no LTE since I doubt my area will be getting LTE even in 2013 so this is the perfect upgrade for me. I cannot wait this is going to be a day 1 purchase.

Definately worth looking into... those specs are quite impressive. Won't be long before 4G/LTE is in it, i'm sure!

To be honest, I've been waiting for the next Nexus phone to upgrade my EVO, but I'm a little disappointed by this phone. The hardware is not anywhere near what I expected, and I never liked chrome on phones. I find it extremely tacky. I'm really let down. I wish Google would have stayed with Samsung for this year's nexus. :/

I guess to be fair I should wait for reviews to see if the camera is any good before I complain about it. But from the specs I don't see it being better by any noticeable margin, let alone a several year margin.

The reason for no LTE has since been explaind many times now, as long as the "standard" remains the way it is its not going to be supported, at least not right away. SD slot, stop asking, because it is never going to happen on a nexus phone anymore. As far as the camera, we'll have to see some samples but if I was a betting man, which I am, I would put all my money on the nexus for over your 3 year old phone.
