The razr has the same battery technology as the iphone.
Sent from my DROID BIONIC using DroidForums
EDIT: SSHGuru... sorry for posting the same thing as you did. I typed this up and received a call before I could hit submit!
I just looked up the specs on the Nexus.....man I am sold on both phones EXCEPT:
No SD card on the Nexus
No removable battery on the Razr
But slightly leaning more towards the Nexus now though. I think I'd be fine with a 32gig phone, maybe even the 16. I like the other specs too. But if the battery ends up being good on the Razr I may go towards that.

But I find it curious they don't mention the unremovable battery of the Razr
As far as the iPhone goes, it's no wonder the battery lasts a long time because the phone is capable of less. No 4G, no widgets, no Adobe Flash, neutered mobile web sites/no way to save files from a link in the browser, and background notifications and processes are just barely starting to get utilized on the OS. On Android, for most apps if you go back to the home screen the app waits idling in case you switch back. On the iPhone, the app is usually killed because multi-tasking is a new thing for Apple and devs haven't taken advantage/the system encourages apps to be killed.
Now that I've played with both the Razr and Bionic I still kinda like the Bionic.
I still got a few weeks for my update, so I guess I should just wait and see who comes to the top.
Yes the hard reset could theoretically overcome these possibilities, but my (numerous) experiences with various bricked android phones indicates that this scenario is doubtful.
"most people don't root their phone"
You do know that this is Droid Forums, right?
"And if they do they just need to be more safe. Not a big problem"
Everyone, from the most brilliant dev to the noob end-user, experiences occasional hiccups when customizing. Clearly, you have little/no experience with rooting.
Hey all, I played with a Razr yesterday and to be honest...it wasn't all that. It has a bigger footprint than the other Android smartphones, it's uncomfortable in the hand, the rubberized back means nothing, absolutely nothing. Yes the Gorilla Glass is nice...however, holding it, playing with one for about 2 hours was just...uncomfortable. The thing is big...I mean BIG. It looks like a tablets little brother more than a phone. After I was done...2 hours...I asked for a Bionic to review. (This was at a Verizon Store in Upstate NY)...they were more than happy to unleash the Bionic from the display and I played with that for about 15 minutes. The Bionic was just as snappy/responsive and frankly feels like a better build. It's heavier, has a more solid feel, and feels better in the hand.
For those who are going to complain about the difference in proc speed...please...the Bionic is fast as hell. Those who will complain about the Bionic's problems...hell...all smartphones have problems.
My opinion...and it's only an opinion...
Wait for the Nexus.
^You talk about it being big....I thought the Nexus was bigger than the RAZR...
If you dont like the size of the RAZR...the Nexus might be worse.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
