1) It will have a MicroSD slot, the Nexus won't
2) It will have the tougher gorilla glass, the Nexus won't.
3) It may end up being a faster phone than the Nexus, looking at some of the benchmarks currently out that show the Nexus lagging behind several current phones.
4) I will be able to install an ICS-based, blur-free ROM at some point.
So if it means getting a better phone and having to wait a month or two for the software to catch up, I am fine with that. Like I said, just being able to have ICS *right now*, is not worth having to have lesser hardware.
As for the CRT screen off feature, that is so minimal of a feature that I don't think anyone cares. It looks cool the first time you see it, but after that you end up forgetting about it. I have it on my DX, running the GB version of CM7. It is a feature, but it is not a benefit I guess.
I will wait till both phones are out and I can see how they stack up, but at this point I am leaning towards the Razr and then loading an ICS based CyanogenMod ROM on it.
I'm going with razr. Both phones are great but I like moto phones more. To me, they always make a solid phone and use top notch hardware. Software can be replaced, hardware can't.

I only ran the GB ones on my D2/DX, I ran the froyo ones on my DPro. The GB ones were obviously much more stable. If you don't rely on OTA updates at all, then your the exact type of person that would benefit from the Nexus' unlocked bootloader. There will most likely be a vast amount of roms to choose from for the nexus and there won't be little annoyances caused by the inability to change the kernel.
