Don't be scared, adb is your friend.
Honestly a great experiance. From start just soo much fun to play with...
and this thing is solid. I know before I got it I heard "felt cheap" proved that wrong, err somewhat yesterday, in middle of a fight *yes this is bad anger control* I slammed phone on counter hard, the battery dented with my finger but everything is was unscathed sooo I am little impressed cause phone worked fine
Formally Azilla and switching my name these days.

The other thing is you are comparing your experience with the bionic to other lte devices. The bionic, like the thunderbolt (htc's first), was motorola's first lte device that was supposed to have been scrapped. I know for a fact the bionic lte issues are not all related to the vzw lte network hiccups. I had a tbolt when it launched and had strong lte the entire time (still do). Know a person with a bionic in that same area and he kept having lte issues to where it almost never stayed connected. My rezound on ics showed better lte connectivity than my nexus did (before 4.04 radios). With the 4.04 radios the rezound shows a better dbm but the nexus speeds are faster (which makes me think the rezound is still reporting lte the same as it did on gb). I am waiting for the official updates for the razr and rezound to see if the oems continue to report lte the same as gb or if the report it like the nexus on ics. This will put the phones on equal footing, especially since the razr and nexus are both running ti omap processors, w will then get a chance to see the signal strength side by side. No matter how it plays out this should end the debate whether its the network or the hardware.

-take control of your nexus experience: Make the Vzw Galaxy nexus your Galaxy Nexus. Fastboot oem unlock (to find out how ask a rescue squad member).
The only issues I have are during calls people fade in and out and I cant hear. Its not regular. and its impossible to tell if its my phone or the person I am calling. but it sucks...
im on the 4.04 radios fwiw
Samsung Galaxy Nexus
I returned mine. I wanted to love the Galaxy Nexus, and there's a lot to like coming from a DroidX. ICS is just a very nice visual user interface, and the mechanisms to add apps and widgets to the home screen is very elegant. 4G was incredible, especially with the hotspot. I had low expectations, but got a 4G signal nearly everywhere I went through the Midwest.
But there were a few challenges that were such a step back from a 2 year old phone I couldn't do it:
1) What voice command calling there was simply was not as nice as the DroidX or Siri. I very much liked Siri, except for the 20% of the time it would time-out upon my requests. The DroidX seems simplistic in comparison, but it gave all the right prompts (mobile or work, which of these names, etc).
2) Using the voice command with bluetooth was simply catastrophic. Perhaps the upcoming update will fix it, but volume across a headset during voice activation was nearly silent. There are other threads documenting this, and it made it simply unusable. It has about a 60% success rate in recognizing my commands, and when it's wrong, it's still confident and calls the wrong person.
3) The battery life is just OK. I never had to worry about the DroidX w/ the extended battery; the Galaxy Nexus was often running out by the evening (with its own slightly extended battery).
4) Darned if it didn't get a little slow near the end. It took a while to notice orientation changes and otherwise became sluggish. I'm surprised.
5) No full-function car dock, with charging and auto-launch of a car app. I just got used to it, and hated stepping backwards.
I'm on the Razr Maxx now, and really loving it. All the things I liked about my DX, with 4G, faster processor, etc. It's a winner.
Finally after 3-5 CLND,this one is pretty good.A few dropped calls,no reboots so update is a big welcome.
Im Loving the ONE and only.
As far as this thread goes, I'm in the process of returning my second GNex. Held on to this one until to the official 4.0.4 rollout in hopes that my frequent signal drops, data disconnects, and 1-way audio issues that were present in both this device and my prior GNex would be resolved. Going to give it one more go hoping there is some truth to the "bad batch" theory, and I'm just incredibly unlucky to get two in a row. If the next one is a dud I'm switching to the Razr Maxx (ugh).

Your doing good to be on your 2nd.It took me 3-4 before I got a good one.Just keep trying,you'll get a good one.I pray you get one that when you power her on update is waiting for you.
