Broke down and bought a 32.
« on: November 02, 2012, 04:28:28 PM »
I was at the store looking for a Gauntlet drive and I asked about the Nexus. They had the 16 on sale for 199 but no 32 or 8s on display. I had to ask a manager if they had a 32 because the sales guy didn't know they were out yet. When the box was in my hands I just had to have it.

The labeling on the box is very generic. It seems there is no distinction between the different units. It took them a while to figure out that it was indeed a 32 gig. I had my doubts until we read the sticker that is attached to the box. It is really not easy and I am sure there are going be mistakes being made.

I'm still on the fence, I'm definitely getting a 16GB Nexus 4 when released but I'm not 100% whether to get a 32GB 7...

I was in my 30 day return period, so I was able to exchange both of mine at no cost for the 32.

That is the ideal situation. I now have a 16 that is waiting an RMA but overall has been very good to me . I am undecided on what to do with her. I am extremely superstitious and even with my addiction prodding me as we speak I haven't opened the box of the new. "edition" I say edition as opposed to addition as a play on words because I appreciate the growth. Whether it was a calculated money move by Google or not. I still have this damn 10 around the corner and it definitely is a mind screw for me right now. Space vs less space and more money. Camera? More RAM? If butter is so smooth as it is and you really can't multitask except for maybe play music or video audio  or something that I haven't discovered in the background, What does more RAM do for you?You can't open multiple windows unless I am really missing the boat. I already can feel that I am screwed into wanting this damn bigger and supposed better.. WTF! Why did I buy the 32 if I am hooked on the. Frikken 10 that hasn't even hit the shore?

What store has the 30 day return on electronics?  Walmart, Staples, BestBuy, etc, all have 14/15 day returns on electronics, and price matching too.
ceh, old dirty and fast!

I always feel jammed up when returning anything. I would never buy anything with the thought of I am going to take it back anyway. As a price conscious consumer I try and be responsible as opposed to reckless. We affect everyone.

Newegg. Man I have seen them around since the days of my Mac Color Cassic and Windows 3.1 systems. I am an instant gratification type of guy. It killed me having to order my OTB cables online. I drove around to every computer store in the area like a jack off trying to find one of these cables that nobody seemed to know existed.

LOL, know what you mean there, Newegg. I ended up having to explain to everyone at bestbuy and radioshack what an OTG cable was, and does. They were amazed, and never knew it existed!

Thank you AMAZON!
