Having the very latest is really over rated unless you are a geek. I find my Galaxy Tab 2 running Android 4.0.4 runs very well and does everything I want it to do. Personally I would take a S3 any day because Samsung is tops in my book. Nothing wrong with a Nexus either, of course.
I had the Galaxy Tab before this Nexus and loved it. I got the nexus from Google and decided to keep it mainly because of the stronger CPU and newer version(s) of Android. The plus about the Samsung was the expandability of the memory. It was slower and an older version of Android which made me think it might be backwards for my first Android purchase.
As for the phone, I read the specs and features on the new Galaxy phone and was blown away. This was after trying to buy the Nexus and finding it's MIA in the whole world. The Nexus phone seems like a good choice because it will have the latest version of Android, great hardware, and great feature set. The S3 phone just seems amazing and a great 2nd choice. Are you guys saying I should hold out, meaning return it lol, until I can find the Nexus phone?
I read a review on the Nexus 4 phone and it was titled something like "great phone with one deal breaking flaw". I read it twice and couldn't figure out what the flaw was they were talking about.
EDIT: Here is another kink into the decision. How does the W8 phone like the 920 stack up to these Android phones?
