Why All the Negativity?

So why are people screaming disappointment? Were you all expecting a magical X Phone with a 4K HD display and 10000 mah battery? Why do you hate Hangouts? Is it not better than having Talk, G+ Messenger, and G+ Hangouts separately? Why do you hate the Nexus S4? Everybody's been screaming for a stock Android device with top end specs that's a flagship. Now that it's here, all you can say is plastic and too expensive? Many of you are impossible to please.
