I grabbed this post from another forum because I so strongly agree with it. The thread was another Razr vs Rezound vs Nexus debate. Sums things up pretty well dontcha think?!
The Nexus is far superior in EVERY aspect. Even in specs. Nexus has OMAP 4460
Razr has OMAP 4430 and Rezound has the same ol MSM8660. The Nexus is
UNDERCLOCKED at 1.2 ghz and the 4460 usually runs at 1.5 ghz stock. Not to
mention the software on the Nexus which is obviously 4.0 has been built around
that specific hardware. So if Google optimized ICS for that specific hardware
setup that shows you something. It will run better on that setup then any other
around. Not to mention you can OEM unlock the Nexus and you'll have to wait for
exploits on the Rezound and the Razr you'll get some awful bootstrap application
that won't even save you in a soft brick situation. To me the superior device is
so obvious. The Razr is clearly marketed towards the average everyday user who
just wants to make calls/text browse the web and do dumb things like Facebook.
The Rezound will most likely be able to do the same things that the Nexus will
be able to do though as long as it gets s-off (which I'm pretty sure it will,
but when will it is the question). The development community is going to be
absolutely HUGE on the Nexus, I am willing to bet it's going to be the biggest
development community on a VZW phone since the original Moto DROID. Once again
the choice is a no brainer to me and the majority of the people I know in the
community. Nobody wants that crappy Razr and HTC does have nice hardware but
they really need to switch up their style of devices. They are sexy as hell but
the same old style is getting old IMO. Time for a little change HTC!
