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.
Screen ( but not a lot of difference to the average user)
ICS ( coming to Razr )
So i'd just like to contribute my $0.02.
I got my Gnex at the beginning of January because i wanted ICS and an unlocked bootloader. I live in a fairly stable reception area, of course not close to 4g but very strong 3g. Started noticing issues right of the bat with battery life and call quality. Since this was going to be my work phone those two issues had a lot of influence on my decision to move off this platform. other issues that showed up were
1. Currently there is a large subset of Gnex users with a wierd call quality issue where the mic will cut out and all the latest software updates have yet to fix it so it boils down to hardware or reception.
2. add on top some dtmf dial tone issues (example: duplicate numbers when entering conference call passcodes)
3. some glitchy refresh issues with widgets (fixed in 4.0.4 but still not GA)
4. odd screen behaviour with a red hue on the right side (required hardware replacement)
and i had to ultimately give up on this platform and go to a razr maxx. I came from a droid x so i loved motorola hardware just hated being locked into blur and bloatware. Was a long time user of liberty os and was really excited with ICS. I just couldnt get the nexus to do what i wanted. So now i'm here hoping we can ramp up development and bring some really good ROMS to the RAZR platform.
Had the bionic ...no problems with current update ...it came out in September 2011...still a current powerful dual core smartphone ...switched to the nexus after reading how awesome it was...right away hard time holding 3g at my house or work...lost signal driving through middle of town...poor call quality ...who was calling and receiving...both poor...that made my decision easy...I use my phone as my primary phone...returned nexus for razr ...just wanted something different than bionic with it's signal and call quality ...haven't noticed poor battery life with razr...it comes with a bigger battery than bionic ...sure I would rather have the maxx...but no real problem with standard razr battery life...if call quality and signal get fixed on nexus it would be a good choice...learned my lesson though...Motorola just has better hardware quality
Sent from my DROID RAZR using DroidForums
i get over 12 hours with mixed 4g and 3g.
the reason i went with the droid razr is because i loved my motorola razr and i loved my motorola droid and the way i see it, they had a baby called droid razr.
then the ugly twin brother came out, droid razr maxx.... JK to all maxx users...

the cake is a lie
It's gonna depend on what you see in a device, I had the Bionic and didn't see what the hype was with the Nexus. Bionic had issues, now I have a Razr. Looked at the rezound but I had a DI2 awhile back and after 1 week the boot started freezing up (non-rooted) and just being in my pocket by itself caused the paint to rub off the camera lens so I don't trust their quality.
The Razr is a great device, I tried the Nexus at various displays, ICS doesn't interest me whatsoever, feels like the Xoom honeycombish software and that isn't good either. Probably ok if you're used to that interface.
Go launchers? I'm not even going to comment on that.
If you get hands on with them both at a few locations you will know which one to get period.
