Picked up a Gnex over Xmas and absolutely love it. Had an upgrade available and received gift cards from all my kids at school for xmas gifts, so essentially got the phone for free! Have been with Verizon for years so still have the unlimited data plan ;-)
Loved my D1 dearly but the Gnex blows it out of the water in every respect. It's so responsive, so fast, ICS is gorgeous, huge screen, zero crapware installed. Perfect.
Still plan to keep my D1, buying the multimedia dock on Amazon for $10 and will have it sit on my work bench hooked up to some speaker for music, email checking etc.
It was a great phone in it's day but even overclocking, rom flashing, tweaking etc can only do so much. After using the Gnex for a day, I went back to the D1 to play around and it felt slooooow.
Seems like the Gnex is getting a huge amount of abuse, a lot of which is pretty unjustified. I admit the camera is low spec compared to some other phones, but the styling and OS blow everything else away, at least from what I can see. Yes, I am sure in 6 months there will be a better phone on the market, but that will always happen.
There will always be a place in my heart for the Droid 1, was an awesome phone in it's day, who can forget this?
