    After owning the pos that is the Samsung Charge, I am a little worried the phone won't be up to par. I mean the Charge is the crappiest phone I have EVER owned. Everything from no notification light to NEVER having internet connection. I sure hope it is and they improve the battery drastically. I also hope it doesn't feel like a cheap plastic pile like the charge does.

    Not one worry here. Everything you mentioned about the Charge is opposite of the G-Nex from reading reviews and watching videos.

    I'm pretty confident that the software and hardware will be good. I too am concerned about the plasticness...plasticity...whatever...all that stupid plastic that Sammy likes to use. I held the Charge for all of 3 seconds and knew that it felt cheap, just like a girl in a short dress standing on the corner of 10th and Fremont in Las Vegas. Might give you a quick thrill, but sure won't last. I didn't even consider the Charge based on that. I really hope the GN is better than that.

    I'm going to Otterbox it anyways so I'm not concerned with the plastic. I have read though that it has a much better feel for being plastic than the rest of Sammy's phones.

    I wish I didn't buy the RAZR in order to potentially play the return/exchange game. After holding it I fear the GN might feel cheap. But I'm hoping for the best!

    You sure there will be one? They had one for the original Nexus, but not the S.

    Ever seen the blackberry storm?

    it literally had a fake touch screen. my friend had it and it broke on its own within a month. 0 times did he drop it and he had a case on it.

    I had the Storm for two years. It worked for a week.

    Sent from my Transformer TF101 using DroidForums

    I got the exact same worries, i figured if Verizon is delaying this phone to get people for $35 restocking i'll be a step ahead and get it from Costco meaning no restocking fee. This darn RAZR is so nice i am really afraid i wont like the feel of the Nexus. Hopefully ICS would make up for it. If not i'll be happy knowing i have 90 more days to be sure about it or go back to the RAZR.
