I am also considering the Nexus. Currently have the Bionic; solid phone but there are some issues that keep rearing it's ugly head. The headphone jack squeal/hiss is very annoying (hardware design flaw); my CLN replacement has the same problem as well as BSOD now..... Never had this before and my data drops are back with vengence even with the ICS leak installed. My phone is still under warranty and VZW is offering the Nexus as an alternate choice if I decide to go down that road. Oh and they offered the Razr (not the Maxx) and the TB (their kidding right?) as well. Any feedback is appreciated.
If they're offering you a Nexus as a replacement I'd say go for it. Your luck with Bionics haven't been the best, I would just give a new model a shot.
If you want to stick with Moto, the Razr is a solid phone too. For me though, the screen was a dealbreaker.
That was where I was leading to as well. Razr's screen and sealed battery are a no-go for me; and the TB is totally worthless. I appreciate your opinion; next stop VZW Tech Services phone call. Thanks again dezymond
Just keep in mind Samsung's radios aren't as good at Moto's. Also the battery life is pretty mediocre out of the box. If you need help rooting and ROMing, just take a look at the Dev section. If you got a Nexus, ROMs are the way to go. And also JellyBean, if that doesn't convince you then I don't know what will.
I know it's hard to beat Moto's radios, they have been doing radios for a long long time. I remember the '80's being a truckdriver using my trusty Moto 2-way radio; those were the days....... I can probably live with Samsung's radio, getting a bigger battery, and an unlocked bootloader is a big plus as well. I've had Moto's for so long this will be a welcome change.
I went to BB Yesterday and checked out re phones. Unfortunately the nexus is not live, just a dummy phone, but the S3 was. That's a sharp and fast phone! But they want $199, so that's a no go. I only have 7 days to wait to upgrade, but they said that I had to wait, while Verizon said I could upgrade today but they have the Nexus for $199.

Well I couldn't accept my second replacement Bionic; it had a 27/11 build date.... yikes a 14 month old phone. I didn't even activate it. Called VZW; getting my Nexus tomorrow. Yay!
