    Are forums some kind of sacred, hierarchical place where only "grand masters" that have accumulated enough posts to immortality can start flames?? LOL.

    To be honest its about hardware for me and I feel the RAZR is top quality in that department. The complaints about software to me can all be fixed, with the exception of NFC. Face Unlock - been doing this for a while with Visidon from the market and it can be personalized for individual apps and be set to check for "liveness" so someone cant just use a picture of your face. Beam - Bump. The other improvements are in the core android processes aka the camera for example, and the optimizations will make their way onto the RAZR. The new additions to GMAIL are sweet, but they will probably arrive prior to ICS in the form of a market update to gmail. The screen is the biggest differentiating factor for me the size and ppi on the Gnex are sweet but it is not gorilla glass and is pentile, while the RAZR is pentile and doesnt have the PPI density it does have gorilla glass. At this point I feel like I'm leaning toward the RAZR....

    Thanks I just did a little research on that fact and apparently it is pentile however as you stated it is NOT the same type of pentile found on the BIONIC. Thanks

    Oh wait, what? Really? I was precisely going to return my Bionic for the Razr because of the PenTile screen... I wonder how close is it going to be??

    It shouldn't be as noticeable since its a different kind and is a AMOLED screen.

    I wouldn't use the term "Better" as obviously its an opinion...lol But as specs go...they are both fast..as most of the past years 1gighz processors are..And as far as the screen goes...I would say the one that is able to be seen in the most variety of situations is the winner...They all look great!
    Edit..and yes 1.2 ghz is the specs I believe with dual core..so:) on those
    You Juss Been TAPPED! by the drummer...
    Another day, yet another flash.....:)

    Well for me I'm torn between the two. The DX was my first Moto smartphone (coming from HTC) and I love the call quality of Moto phones, however I love the freedom of modding my phone to fit my preference (if I feel the need to). I am NOT a big fan of blur at all and can't see myself being stuck with blur (even with ICS) while waiting on ho-hum custom ROMS due to a locked bootloader. Now if the AUS bootloader unlock tool would work for us then that would be a gamechanger. So for me, its the G-Nex or Vigor (I refuse to call it a Rezound lol). Just my two pennies in on the matter.

    Until HTC gets creative I'm not even looking at their phones. They don't exist to me. Everything looks like an EVO.
