Am I the only one who thinks the RAZR will be better than the GNex?

    Having a HD screen isn't just about PPI but you can see more stuff on the screen at once. When you browsing the web you will be able to see more without having to scroll down. Thats the same with 720p and 1080p resolutions on say computer screens or TV's.

    The Nexus will have some sort of fortified glass, we just don't know which exact type/brand yet. Corning Gorilla glass is simply a brand and is definitely not the only option.

    I know that. But they haven't revelaed what kind of fortified glass. Or how it will stack up to the Gorilla Glass Brand.

    If there is one thing I've learned about a Verizon Nexus, patience is key :).

    Sorry, didn't mean to get you worked up. I'll enjoy my faster read/write speeds ;)

    And enjoy your non removable battery :)

    The screen on the S was some sort of fortified glass as well and it was very durable. Rest easy friends.

    That's true. You like your phone I like a different phone. Honestly, I don't like the style of Nexus. I don't like the non-removable sd card. I don't think a smaller screen advantage is that big a deal. It's mostly the style that I don't like though. Looks way too plain for my tastes.

    As to the above post. Well you did sort of attack me for liking one phone over another. I mean seriously, this is teenager garbage. I am no teen and don't want to get into this at all. You like your phone I like mine. We both like either phone for different reasons. I like Motorolas radios which I have never had any problem with. You like the Nexus which has shortcomings just like any other phone. Neither phone is the be all end all of phones.

    Plus, both phones will be obsolete with Tegra 3 and its incredible performance. So it really doesn't matter. Next year will have better phones.

    Other reviews have praised the screen. It really isn't something that is clear cut at all.

    Honestly it's not a contest it's a preference.

    I will wait until both are out and choose.

    Fortified means nothing until they explain it - fortified with calcium like my Orange Juice.... also it's got the same battery but a bigger screen how is it going to compare battery life... don't say extended battery.

    5 hours of moderate to heavy use is the same as the Bionic. I plug it in and I never have problems.

    And honestly I like the pure glass screen look of the Nexus - I think it's cool. I also like the RAZR screen. I played with the RAZR for an hour today and honestly the screen looked fantastic especially when I pushed up the brightness and pumped up the bass.

    We don't even know when the Nexus is being released - by then we'll know everything about the RAZR.

    Both are great phones, but a Verizon Nexus is just too perfect for my needs to pass up. I would still prefer the Bionic over the Razr though solely for the ability to replace the battery.

    This is all too true. Some people really don't see it, which is fine. I for one cannot stand it. I also don't think people are going to like Blur Cream Sandwich very much.

    We actually don't know the size of the battery in the LTE Nexus. Word on the street is they're going with a slightly larger battery, possibly 1900mah.

    Actually we do know - it's a 1750.

    And right now I could really go for a Ice Cream Sandwich even if it was blurry.:icon_ banana:

    This thread is going down hill fast... again ... who cares what the other guy has. Care about what you have. And if it's bragging rights you're looking for, that doesn't work very well in forums, maybe with your friends, but not in cyberspace.
