I picked up my Gnex bright and early on launch day and have absolutely no regrets about the phone. I came from a DX on CM7. IMO it is hands down the best phone on the market right now. Needless to say I've been excited about the phone pre- and post-launch so I've been telling a lot of my less tech-savy friends about the phone and why it is so great.
Anytime someone asks me what is so great about the phone I usually start with the basics: 1.2 Ghz dual-core processor, 4G LTE, 1GB RAM, HD screen, etc...as I'm saying this I realize these specs really aren't any different or that much better than say the RAZR, Bionic, Rezound, Droid 3, RAZR (in white), or even the upcoming Droid 4.
So then I usually start into the more techy points (which really are the points that make the phone so great) like Ice Cream Sandwich (huh?), the unlocked bootloader (what is that?), lack of a manufacturer skin like Blur (nope not understanding that either), more timely updates from google (hopefully), and just that overall it is "a developer" device so you can do so much more with the device. Usually somewhere in this train of features I realize my friend is staring at me with glossy eyes and has no idea what I am talking about...so at that point I usually of fade into silence and follow it with some sort of "just trust me its freaking awesome" comment to end the conversation.
Anyone else experiencing this same thing? Thank goodness I have the forums to get my geeky fix
