MP count really has nothing to do with camera quality, you would have to look at a review of both phones by the same reviewer. My 2 year old phone is 5mp and it sucks so Im thinking the nexus HAS to be better.

Megapixels mean nothing. 5mp is LOTS

The Megapixel Myth

Not to be rude, it just bugs me when I see "well the camera is better because its 12mp and not 8mp"

doesn't mean anything, just bigger files that take longer to upload and take more space.

If you're printing wall sized prints from a phone you're doing it wrong

I highly doubt we'll see the 32GB in Canada, but guess only time will tell.

i was more thinking about the secondary cameras that are on the screen side, just incase android gets something similar to facetime on iphone/ ipad, 2mp seemed a lot better than 1.3, the last 1.3mp cam on my razr really sucked compared to the 2mp that was on my 810i erricson.

They already have something like facetime, which launched with the Galaxy Nexus/ICS. It's called Google+ Hangouts.

Enjoy it, it is a good phone, but I do think the Nexus is a better device. :)

i like it so far, connects to my tv through my network with allshare, nice feature. browser is nice and big, and flash seems to work really well. i have another phone on my account that qualifies for a cheap upgrade so maybe i'll get the nexus when it comes out. :D
