    The Bionic was a piece of junk because they delayed it for 9 months and it still ended up having a terrible screen and lots of issues. It's definitely been improved though with continuous software updates.

    The Nexus isn't a piece of junk, it's hardware is great, it has minor software issues like any device would when it's the first device ever using a brand new operating system.

    Many people have no signal/data issues at all, some people do have signal/data issues. The difference is Google directly updates this device and is working 100% on improving Ice Cream Sandwich. This means any software issues that need to be addressed will be done so in a timely manner, which can't be said for other phones/manufacturers.

    I have no problems whatsoever with my Gnex. Signal strength is perfect and the hardware/software is excellent. The super amoled HD is amazing too. Looking at my iPod touchs screen is horrible lol

    Uhm no. Maybe they've just had a more solid network.. they've had months to update it. Duh. And my bionic has been so solid since day 1. So no i dont need justification for anything. I had the gnex for one day. I live in the styx.. and it just had terrrible service... i mean bad. Volumn problems.. portrait to landscape is transitions are so slow. Camera sucks. No sd card. Multitouch is screwed. So many apps dont work. Brought it right back. Rn its just a bugfest. I may try it again. But not soon.

    I had the Bionic for about 10 days. It was a nice phone, had the expected bugs, but I knew those would be addressed.

    I couldnt get past the mediocre display and the worthless camera.

    Glad I sent it back and held out for the Nex. Mine is perfect. Camera is awesome, and the screen is amazing, peerless.

    Hypochondria is one thing but a phone with no service at all is another. And if one phone has service while another doesn't it doesn't fit the definition of hypochondria.

    But all those only comparing bars of signal while their phone is working fine isn't helping the issue.

    The phone came out with more bugs then the Bionic, Razr, and Rezound? You're kidding.. We've reported, what? Signal issues(which seem to have been getting better for most people- and personally no problems here), the first few days we reported bad battery life(now people are posting screenshots of amazing battery life for a 4G phone), and the phone getting hot while charging..

    Uh? That's not that much. The Bionic was plagued with so much more, and look how long it took to get all these updates.. going on 3months. Of course though, user experience varies. Some phones come with a lot of bugs, others don't. You say yours didn't, but that doesn't get rid of the fact on how so many others were.

    Not to mention, this is a forum guys. Most people on here found the site from either reporting problems they have had, or looking for their questions to be answered. We are the minority as there is so many more people with these phones then just us registered users. Other people with no problems aren't coming to these sites because they have no need to.

    LOL I have the Bionic and love it. I'm about to get the Gnex and I'll see how it compares in real life. Not all these so called reviews I keep reading that don't match up. I expect it will have some things I'll hate but for me I love technology and I'm a gadget guy so I will deal with most things. My fear is the batter life though; I do a lot on my phone and need it charged. I have chargers everywhere for me phone lol because of these issues but it is a PITA.

    This kind of posting bugs me a little. I own the Bionic and it has given me only a few problems which is mostly a software issue. The data drops is a network issue. The phone is fast, reliable and keep in mind reception issue is based on where you live. I don't have those issues. Yes it has bugs, ALL phones HAVE bugs! Come on people, no technology is perfect. Bionic TO ME is a great phone and have no regrets. Before that I had the DroidX and LOVED that too and now I'm about to get the GNex and I'm sure I'll like that and I'll deal with it shortcomings. Most of what people complain about are personal preference issues. It's good to vent though and like that I can come here and read about some of the issues people are having to see if it relates to my experience.

    I was disappointed when I bought my first Android tablet. I then bought a second one and was and still am disappointed onthe quality of the software and the lack of updates they've made. I use my iPad most of the time so guess what's about to be sold??? I look for products that suits my everyday lifestyle. I'm on my phone a lot, battery life is important but I can deal with it. What I don't want is a lot of software issues to the point I can't use the phone without something crashing and lag. If the GNex gives me that I'm happy. I will just wait for updates or just install a ROM to fix it.
