I have a Verizon upgrade available and am considering buying the Galaxy Nexus.
I am currently using a Droid-X with CyanogenMod9/Gummy ROM for the ICS 4.0.4
My only concern is - I have read that when in areas with poor 4G signal (or no 4G) that the Galaxy Nexus's 3G data drops frequently. I read that this occurs to all verizon 4G phones except the HTC rezound and thunderbolt because they have a setting to turn off 4G, which one can do when outside good 4G coverage areas.
I like the Glaxy Nexus as it gets timely android updates.
I also read that most HTC phones do not last very long on their battery.
How bad is the data drop issue?
