    Sent my G2 back

    After using the G2 for about 10 days and liking it very much I just couldn't see the point in keeping it. I rarely use the keyboard due to the Vlingo app and my Nexus is just too damn sweet in the hand. It is almost as fast, better looking, the build quality is far better IMO and after buying all the extras like the desk top dock, which I use every day getting music to my boss stereo system and it sounds fantastic I might add just couldn't see the point in keeping it. The G2 is a great phone but I honestly think the Nexus is still # 1.

    Thanks,
    If I do pick up another device I will NEVER let my Nexus One go. I never left. Nexus One is without a doubt the most comfortable device in your hand, I just kept feeling like I was missing something every day I used the G2. Is it me or does other Nexus One owners also feel this way?

    I was reading review and news about it and it was an impressive package.

    THe CPU/GPU is better apparently, the touch sensor doesn't freak out when swapping axis and there is a keyboard.

    But overall, this isn't a substantial upgrade over the nexus. Its just like the many other android phones from the last few months.

    SUrely, anyone would be happy with either, but overall, in daily use, the differences are neglible.
    Galaxy Nexus? I like Nexus prime more. Even the code name "Maguro" seemed cooler.

    Am I right that the G2 runs native android without any manufacturer skins? Also, is it true that T-Mobile has disabled the native tethering/wifi hotspot functionality? How easy is it to get that back? That's one feature I can't live without after owning the N1.

    From what I read, the T-mob G2 runs native android, the very similar Desire-Z doens't (kinda like the original desire and nexus one!)

    As for the tethering... not idea, but it doesn't seem like something hard to circumnavigate.

    Runs native android with no manufacturer skin, but comes preloaded with every single Google App. And correct, they did remove the tethering/wi-fi ability.
