    Help convince me not to by a Galaxy Nexus...

    I love my Bionic, but like most of you I'm always looking for something new and better. Every other week I go on Craigslist looking for a deal on a Galaxy Nexus and after a little bit of looking I tell myself I don't need to and its pointless. However, the other day I actually emailed someone about one, but luckily they didn't write back. Not sure how much longer I can go until I actually buy one.

    I need your help to convince me to stay with the Bionic and not go with the Galaxy Nexus. Or even if you feel it is a better move.

    lost photos

    the nexus only has internal memory. If for some reason you accidently delete your photos, they are gone forever. Get a phone with external memory.

    Yes and no, if you use drop box you can set it up to automatically back up your photos there along with other files, and for a free account you get 5gb of cloud storage. So to retrieve any deleted item all you have to do is access drop box...
    There is no try, only do or do not -

    Well, if you get the Nexus and still come back to this forum, you'll be a troll!

    Convince you not to get one? I'd rather have you help me get one! I'm sick of getting jerked around by VZW and Moto.

    That's what I'm saying....it's crazy.

    I just want something new and fresh. The Bionic was conceived in January last year and I fell in love and waited the whole 9 month pregnancy for it to come out and held it in my arms(well hand) the very second it did. Thats the longest phone relationship I've ever had. Started with the Omnia, then the Omnia 2, then the HTC Eris and then the Bionic. And it is a fantastic phone just the Nexus is something new and will get updates for the next year or so. And my upgrade isn't until next summer so I figured I could use the Nexus until then, then upgrade. But then I'm back to why leave the Bionic? It is still doing good for me. It will never end! lol

    You don't need to pay for Drop box. Google+(pics) , Google music, Google drive are built in and have auto upload.

    Because something better will come out in 2013 and it's better to wait? There's ALWAYS something better coming out and that's how you should feel in this situation and if something better doesn't come out, then go with the Nexus which at that time, may be cheaper. It's a win-win all you have to do is be patient. Unless the Bionic is giving you trouble, don't get rid of it. If something is working don't fix it, specifically. don't change it.

    If I was up for a new phone, I'd wait for the Razr HD Maxx.
