    Verizon should be able to replace the battery in store.

    The "non user replaceable" battery does concern me a little since doing a battery pull would be impractical.

    But otherwise if I could upgrade the Razr would be the phone I would get right now. The nexus excited me but I think its more because of ICS; the more I look at the hardware the more I find the nexus a little underwhelming.

Going from OG MotoDroid to the Razr has been a giant leap forward for me. Don't think it's going to be as big of a leap going from Razr to Gal Nexus. I don't really NEED Ice Cream Sandwich. Im plenty happy with OS that came with the Razr. I'm just curious when ICS is released for the Razr, will the Razr's performance be as zippy as before the update? As supposed to the Gal Nexus which comes already loaded with ICS? Sorry if I sound like a noob.
    I've gotten accustomed to navigating around the Razr. It's plenty fast and does everything i've asked of it. I've had no freezes. I also love the Smart Actions on the Razr. That has definately helped with conserving the battery. I'm getting 10 hours with pretty heavy usage(I can't put this thing down), which isn't bad.
    When it comes down to it, I think the main reason I'm considering switching is the screen resolution is higher on the Nexus. Guess i'll just have to see the Screen on the Nexus myself when it's released on Friday (hopefully)
    You have to actually see both screens side by side, both set to either auto brightness or both set to 100%, and then set the RAZR to live wallpaper, the leaves on water, and then the same on the gnex and see for yourself if you prefer one over the other. Then do the same with the browsers, and finally with pictures. Resolution isn't everything.

    I did that with the Rezound (also a higher resolution than the RAZR) and was disappointed with the washed out look of the Rezound. The colors were bland, the contrast was no comparison, and the screen almost appeared as though I was looking at it through a frosted glass or light fog. The image edges were sharp, but the lack of contrast and less than dark blacks detracted from it's overall presence.

    There is the possibility that they will. It does require removing the back cover and then two Torx screws which hold down the contacts, but it's nothing a reasonably well trained tech shouldn't be able to handle.

    Are you using the drills 12 hours a day with daily recharging. Lithium battery life span depends primarily on charging cycles. The standard is 300-500 cycles. With a 4G phone, that's certainly less than 2 years because to the need to constantly recharge. In any case, having a user replaceable battery, or even a battery easily and conveniently replaceable at nominal cost adds a great deal to the useful life of the phone. Having to send the phone in to Motorola and pay at least (they couldn't be more specific) $110 doesn't meet that requirement for.

    But fell free to simply get a new phone any time the battery fail after the one year warranty. Many people don't think that's good value.

    Verizon says they will not be doing that and I should contact Motorola to see what the cost and process is. That's what I did. Can that change? Sure, but don't count on it.

    I played long enough with the razr to think it's the best Moto out. But just didn't do it for me. Didn't feel or look right.

    Besides anything that is a nexus will always be top of the line... It's a phone made by google, on an os made by google. If you love android then nexus is a necessity.

    Don't diss them. Who would setup and maintain those wonderful toy stores called the Verizon store?

    Swyped and sent through the interwebz directly to you from somewhere and some device that doesn't concern you!

    I had an OG droid then moved up to the D3. Love it. I found about root and did it and been reading up on roms. After what you peeps have said. I am going to unroot my phone now and bring jt back to stock. Messing with trying to find the perfect rom and all kernels etc for hours don't sound fun. Plus lots of apps i have discovered that pretty much let me customize this bad boy to my needs. I do like ti backup though. Let me move all my crap the sd card that i could not before. Thanks for advice you unknownly gave me.
