    New GNex Owner - Getting CLN - Thoughts?

    I've read the previous posts on Certified Like New (CLN) GNex's and was wondering if there are any new thoughts or experiences on the subject. Working with VZW (EXCELLENT customer service) I am switching from the Bionic and the best I could negotiate was a CLN, which I was promised would be "as new".

    Has anyone recently gotten a CLN?
    Thanks!

    I've gotten CLNRs in the past. Not this phone, but CLNRs nonetheless. Never had any issues, and it was always because my current device was malfunctioning in some way, functioning like-new is better than not functioning, 1.5 years old. The CLNRs always looked good to me and worked just as fine as a brand new phone. I never understood peoples' beef with CLNRs.

    I'm sure they went over the phone pretty well and checked it. You should be fine. Btw, welcome fellow Bionic war survivor! (the war that happened around the release date!)

    Nexus CLN will be far better than a brand new bionic. Haha

    Anyway even if u have a problem with it u can always switch it again. But generally they ARE like new so there shouldn't be problems.

    Great feedback on CLN's and the suggestion to get a case.

    Good to hear that I just might do OK with the CLN! Looking forward to it.

    Regarding a case, I've got to do more research. Lots of NGex users seem to go for the "skin" type of case, and I typically favor the "pouch" type. I am open to either at this point. Gotta do some lookin'.

    check the refurb before you send back the original. 3 refurbs they sent me were worse than the original. "double checked" my ass. one wouldn't even power on...


    you can send back the refurb if it's a bad one. that's what i did. just call them so they can notate your account.

    I bought two cases and they are just collecting dust. I love this thing naked! I may slap a case on it quick if I go out to the bar or something tho. As far as it "not being built like a Moto" there is no way this phones display would crack/shatter any easier than the Bionic. Or any other phone for that matter.

    Same exact boat as u. I hate putting cases on it I have two for it and when I'm at home my phone is wearing its birthday suit! When I go to work I put a case because I'm rushing sometimes.

    Motorola build quality is just talked about a lot and commercialized to the point where I don't pay attention anymore. Motorola relies solely on built quality to sell phones. The nexus is the complete opposite of that and it actually feels like a great phone in your hand not like a tile, durable, not cheap at all. Only downside is that its slippery. That's it.

    I never had a case but I move around too fast in general and found that I was dropping this. It's VERY slippery.

    I have bought most of the available thin cases and this one wins..

    Amazon.com: Samsung Galaxy Nexus Black Tpu Gel Skin Case S Line: Electronicsnd it's only $3.50.
