PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Many people think that all Androids are equal and it's a race to the bottom where the cheapest vendor wins. This could not be farther from the truth. For me, it all began half-a-year ago, when I bought the Samsung Galaxy S III and was absolutely stunned by it, then exploring and comparing it with other Androids. Now that Google has fired a shot across the bow with its low pricing for the unlocked Nexus 4, where does that leave Samsung and its flagship handset?

The difference is that all firmware is made available for Nexus and so Nexus is usually very good supported with CyanogenMod but also runs eg WebOS as parallel-boot install. Such flexibiliy makes it way more actractive and hacker-friendly what leads to nice community-support far beyond Android. Its also a hacker-device and not only a consumer-device like Samsung's are.
