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

    I agree it would be alot differentvif both were launched with ICS but as it is only the gn, and it will probly be 3rd 4th quarter 2012 before razr gets ics. I just read a post saying what phones sammy would release ics on but said it would be 2nd quarter 2012, isnt sammy known for getting early releases? I could be wrong? But there are still phones with no official gb... So i cant see getting a razr n saying , o but when ot gets ics.... While it may be better.. (then...and not saying it will.... Who knows) the fact is iy could be a year before it gets it, who knows what new toys will be out by then. Im not saying dont get razr, but dont get it on the bank that it will have ics within a month r so

    This will probably change if Google's buyout of Motorola goes through. There is no way they would not update their phones as quickly.

    3rd 4th quarter? U forget moto is alwats the first to send out phone updates? The nexus will be better for rom whores, the razr will be better for the avg civilian. Hence one being a "developer" phone and one coming with a custom UI.

    My X has had three OS updates in the last year and a half. I believe Moto will update to ICS on the Razr and soon. I'm going Razr and a big reason is from the great experience I have had with my X.

    After some research it makes sense why the battery is not removable on the razr. They are using a lithium polymer battery instead of an ion battery. It is used in all the apple products and probably a lot of slim tablets. It is a gel pack battery instead of solid like we have known in all our other droid phones. Hence the stainless frame and kevlar back. The batteries swell a bit more and can get warmer that the ions. However they can be molded much thinner. Apparently they are a bit more volatile than ions as well and can explode easier. That would make sense why they don't want customers tampering with them.

    I had not seen this mentioned and wanted to throw it out here.

    Had HTC, motorola, soon a nexus.

    Don't really wanna go back to motorola despite my problems with my HTC. So that puts motorola lower.

    Very doubtful that it'll be a better phone

    I think the razr is looking really good. I just hate that moto lets vzw lock their phones, i think this is complete garbage and my sole reason i dont want the razr, i think it will have some sort of hard reset, and i have never had to carry around 2 batteries so not woried about not being able to swap em out.... Its just vzw screwing us over and moto letting them! :-[

    Well the G Nex will have the the RAZR out-specced except in the ruggedness department but the general consensus is that Samsung phones feel cheaply made (which is my opinion as well). The call quality on Samsung phones tend to be lacking and not to mention they've been plagued with GPS issues to the point that a barometer had to be include in the G Nex to assist it. Motorola phones in general have superior call quality, which is likely due to one of their patented ideas, compared to Samsung phones. There is also a huge preference factor that will decide who wants which phone. The G Nex lacks a removable sd card card; this is a deal-breaker to many. A lot of people had their sights set on it until they heard about that. The RAZR lacks a removable battery; this is a deal breaker to people who to keep spare batteries. Motorola included in the RAZR software a program called Smart Actions, which when turned on tweaks the phones settings to optimize battery life (e.g. dims brightness, turns wifi off when not in use for a while, lowers clock speed, etc.). Also I speculate that they have new longer lasting battery tech in the RAZR that couldn't have been done with a removable battery during the time that it was developed; I don't think that they're gonna just make a phone with a nonremovable battery and a juice-chugging LTE chip and not have something to directly compensate for it.

    I won't be getting either phone because I'm one of the people who simply will not pay for a phone that doesn't have a slide-out keyboard, but I can say that there will be many proud owners of both of these phones in the months to come.
