Smells like space farts and popcorn in here!
I was almost in this same position on monday. I needed to buy a new phone and was stuck between the razr maxx and gnex. I personally like the build quality of the razr more than the gnex but the gnex is a nexus. But the reason why i chose the gnex is because it fits what i want to achieve better than the razr could.
I already knew i was going to root and flash roms on my phone and do a bunch of mods to it. The nexus is perfect for this.
Like the others have said we can tell you what we would choose but it all comes down on what you want to do and which one you like more.
Do the pro's of the razr seem more appealing than the pro's of the gnex? Which one feels better in your hands?
Is there anyway that you can try one of the phones out and if you dont like your choice would it be possible to try the other one?
I can be standing right next to him with my nexus and not get squat.
To me that's totally unacceptable, I have to go outside and around the corner of the building that is clear of an embankment to get a good signal.
A smart phone is only a phone if you can make calls or get email.
Otherwise you just have an expensive ipod touch.

OP seems to have run away from this thread and some of the comments in here are questionable. Let's keep it clean and helpful everyone!
Wish the OP would chime in...kinda hope he's taking some advice after asking for it lol
Hope we didn't get trolled, the OP has way too many posts to be labeled a troll otherwise he wouldn't have stuck around this site that long right
