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

    I don't think its out pected at all I actually think they're very similar in terms of technology wise. I think your major differences are going to be software such as user interface, or battery, also nexus being unlocked.... personally I think the inner guts are just a lil too similar to call either way

    I was waiting for Nexus and found out about the new Razr. I compared both and there are certainly some pro's to ea (noted in previous posts throughout). A quick pt of full disclosure: This will be my first smartphone-Droid or otherwise. I am however a semi- techie (IT Director by trade) just a slow adopter and kinda cheap. My current piece of LG junk is dying a slow death and I have a $30 discount for any phone from Verizon until the end of Oct. So just like I always do I have been comparing these beasts up one side and down the other obviously weighing what's best for me. The answer in short: I pre ordered a RAZR w/30 bucks off. As part of my job I have telecom under me and was actually involved in the first deployments of cell phones in my organization (be nice yes I am old as dirt but still in the game!). We started w/the true bricks costing $900 ea. (most of u guys are probably too young to even know what they were). Over the yrs we have had, at one time or another, every brand made in some significant qtys. It has been my experience over many yrs that there are many good phones but for me Moto has displayed the best, most consistent build quality/performance out there. Next, there's me. I am tough on stuff in general and the usual build quality of MOTO plus the "hardened" nature of this phone in particular is a perfect fit. Can't wait to get it!!!

    Well the Droid RAZR has an OMAP4 4430 vs the Galaxy Nexus' OMAP4 4460, which can outperform the 4430 and be clocked higher. The Droid RAZR's GPU (304 Mhz) is clocked slower than the Galaxy Nexus' GPU (384 MHz). The Droid RAZR has a qHD screen vs the the Galaxy Nexus' HD screen.

    When you look at the entire package that both phones offer it comes down to a matter of personal preference. Do you want to be one of the cool kids on the block with phone that has a stainless steel core and kevlar backing? Do you want to be the first to taste the latest version of Android?

    I remember those things. I was 8 years old when they came out. Actually I remember them starting off at more like 3000 dollars. The only people who could afford them were celebrities and athletes.

    Edit: Maybe I'm thinking of carphones.

    At this point im about ready to throw in the towel and get a bionic and hope and pray for ics (and that it will help camera). Atleast it has sd and movable battery

    Nope. The resolution on the Droid RAZR is 960 x 540 and the resolution on the Galaxy Nexus is 1280 x 720.

    4 me, "being first" is never part of the equation or something I need. It's what fits my actual needs best vs a "spec war' or being first. The performance of both phones will certainly be spectacular...

    Well the Droid RAZR will be the first high-end rugged smartphone, and you'll be among the first to have it lol.
