You can KEEP the nexus prime its a SGII with a dress on very little difference from a galaxy s 2 and the nexus prime pointless to have both but SPRINT PLEASE PLEASE GET THE GALAXY NOTE the galaxy note is unlike anything on the market its not another galaxy s 2 clone with google fingerprints. The Galaxy note is a 5.3 inch phone tablet hybrid with a better camera better processor and better everything

Re: Sprint, get the Nexus Galaxy!

Granted the differences are small, but there are a few things which will sell the Galaxy Nexus (GNX) over the Galaxy S II (GS2)

The Display Experience:

    GNX: 4.65-inch (11.81cm) 720×1280 HD Super AMOLED (315.83 PPI & 99,748 PPI²)

    GS2: 4.30-inch (10.92cm) 480×800 Super AMOLED Plus (216.97 PPI & 47,074 PPI²)

    Difference: GNX has nearly a centimeter more on the diagonal and nearly 99 more Pixels Per Inch (PPI). That is enough for a noticeable difference.

The Operating System Experience:

    GNX: Android 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich" + Google-Direct OS Updates

    GS2: Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" + TouchWiz UI 4.0 + Samsung-Modified OS Updates

    Difference: With the Google Galaxy Nexus being a Google Experience Device, it is assured speedy delivery of the latest version of the Android OS, without Carrier Bloatware (Demos, Nascar, etc) or Manufacturer-Delayed Overlays (Like Touchwiz). It may take weeks or even months before the Galaxy S II receives the latest ICS Updates and Upgrades beyond when the Galaxy Nexus receives them.

Physical Characteristics:

    GNX: The curved display is found by many to be both more durable and pleasing to hold. Although slightly heavier than the Galaxy S II, it is still lighter than the iPhone 4S.

    GS2: Has a standard straight back-slab form factor that many are comfortable with.

You can argue that they're the same phone with different makeup (and you can argue that with nearly any two phones), but the subtle differences make it a whole different beast.

As for my vote, I want Sprint to get me the Galaxy Nexus.

The differences are so small that most sites have comparied the two its a pointless device in terms of mass sales especially with the SG2 dropping to 199.99.   So in essesnce .3 inch of screen and 20% better contrast is worth buying a whole new device Hell no. Just get a SG2 and root it apply ICS the code will be almost identical due to samsung using the Sg2 as a base for the Nexus prime. Hey maybe thats why Im not in Sprint Marketing and Development because I see the Nexus Prime as pointless what I would do is lean on Samsung to release a ICS rom for SG2.

To further show you how limited the difference is look at this, its less then 20% difference more like 5% difference

Yup, the Galaxy Note has my vote. The Galaxy Nexus Prime will be the smaller version without the stylus, but will serve it's purpose. I can't wait for the Galaxy Note....I am going to switch carriers if need be but I hope Sprint offers it asap!

Yes we need the Nexus please.

Sprints GS2 has a 4.52" display not a 4.3" display, also Sprints GS2 has the slight curve in the back towards the bottom almost slimilar to the GNX but not quite.

agree! I want the galaxy nexus! I'm already planing on jumping ship if we don't get it.

Sprint execs/employees, if you are reading this I just want you to know if I can't get a Galaxy nexus by the time my contract is up (Feb), I will be switching to a carrier that does.  Probably back to T-mobile.  They charge the same amount and they have HSPA+ in my area, Sprint doesn't have WiMax in Wichita.
