    Nexus or Razr?

    I'm going to be buying my wife her first smartphone and we were looking at the white razr or the nexus. I currently have a tbolt so I wanted to get some more opinions about these phones. She prefers a white phone and I don't think Verizon is getting the white nexus so she's leaning towards the razr but I think ICS is the better choice. Any thoughts?

    I'm sure the Nexus is a great phone, but since I have not used one I can only comment on the Razr which is also great. I have a Xoom which has pure ICS like the Nexus and find I would miss the added features that blur gives you.

    Are the home and back buttons on the razr built for ICS like the nexus has or are they permanent ones like my tbolt?

    you seriously believe ICS will be coming to the razr any time soon? moto is still sending updates to the bionic to try and get it working right...


    based on my bionic experience, i don't trust moto with software.



    as far as the OP's question, do you want sub-par screen res with an old OS, or the latest and greatest?

    The Razr will receive ICS, they mentioned Q1 of 2012, but who knows really.

    Considering this phone is for your wife, has she actually had some hands-on time with them or only saw them? After all there should be more factors into considering a phone other than the color of it

    Future versions of ICS will rely on the physical buttons. As the Nexus doesn't have any dedicated home/back buttons, it uses the soft keys provided by ICS.

    If i had to do it over again id get the razr. I plan to trade my gn for the maxx as soon as its in stock. The phone is just more complete imo. The nexus is good but i think the software is too young or something. Just seems more clunky and the radios are pretty subpar if you live in a less than stellar 4g area. Unless they come out with an update before the maxx gets in stock i will most likely be trading it in. Havent decided 100% but thats what im leaning towards

    I agree, the color is simply one factor, its just more aesthetically pleasing for her but in terms of actual hands on time she has only used my rooted Tbolt which she loves. I've had such bad experiences waiting on updates that never come on time with my Tbolt that I didnt want to go through again with the Razr (i dont plan on rooting her phone).
