    Thinking about purchasing a Gnex. Quick question please.

    After having several android devices, starting with OG droid, droid x etc, I decided to see how the other half lives. I purchased a iPhone 4s. Nice device but I cannot get past the utter lack of customization on the device especially coming from android where you can revamp the phone to your hearts content.

    Well, one of my lines is eligible for an upgrade and would really like to return to google. The only phone I will consider is the Gnex. I do not want the blurs, senses, etc.. Vanilla android FTW.

    In reading this forum I am a bit apprehensive considering all I have read regarding signal loss. Is everyone having this issue?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I don't have the issue. I am actually really impressed. Coming from a thunderbolt with surround sound, I am somewhat disappointed with the sound quality but aside from that, I have NO complaints!

    You will love it. Aside like others mention about speaker volume, it is awesome. You will love ICS. Hopefully 4.0.4 fixes volume. If not, I still wouldn't want any other phone.

    Best phone I have used yet. I have had no signal problems at all. The signal issues happen on every phone and no one is really sure of the exact cause (area you live in, authentication on vzw's network etc..) It's for sure worth a try!

    I had the razr thought I loved it until I had to have 4 replacements in 2 wks. They offered the Gnex and I have had absolutely no problems with it and I live in an area where reception is spotty and have had no problems. I wouldn't have any other phone. Especially anything from Motorola they don't stand behind their products and was always a loyal customer to Motorola but not anymore. Love my Gnex and will never look back. Hope this helps and good luck.

    Reception has never been an issue for me. I work as a school inspector so I'm constantly in basements and every day I have to call out at a certain time. I always have signal in basements, anywhere.

    IMHO I like it but I still long for the Rezound I traded it in for. I kind of liked Sense...I'm not much into rooting, ect. I have a completly stock unrooted unit. The signal stuff is driving me crazy! When I leave work or home where I have Wi-Fi it seems to take forever to find a mobile network. I replaced my SIM card, VZW guys say all is fine. My cubemate has a Maxx, for my unmodding needs, that's what I really want. I am looking on Craigslist for a trade for a RAZR Maxx. I might even consider paying the ETF and just selling it and buying a Maxx. Lets see if we get the radio update before I pull the trigger...

    my 2 cents...

    If you want Vanilla Android, then the Galaxy Nexus is your only real option on Verizon IMO. Signal issues or no.

    The signal issues have not been universal even though they have been widespread. I know Nexus owners who returned the phone 2 or 3 times but did eventually get one without signal issues. So if you want Vanilla Android bad enough, it is possible to get around the signal issue. You just have to be persistent.

    Personally, I am finding I don't miss it as much as I thought I would. I had vanilla Android on my Droid 1. HTC is allowing me to root now, so I am happy.
