    Just purchased a second phone and yes its the nexus... I'm enjoying this phone as I am my razr... But I can't help but give my 2 cents worth of mind on people comparing build quality of phones today.... It's crazy yes some phones feel and are made better but come on people... What do you want titanium body and diamond dust screen... Sounds awesome but would you be willing to shell out the Benjamin's... My point is Glock pistol's are made from polymer which is a plastic and it takes one heck of a beating and holds up as good as its Aluminum and steel partners... Im content with the way my Nexus is built as I am my plastic 40 S&W

    This is definitely some high quality plastic that can take a beating. I think it's higher quality than plastic found in most cars.

    Agree, The phone is built well although plastic but so is my Glock and I'm sure no one will make make a joke out of that if they are starting down the barrel.... Let's just work out the tiny issues the phone is experiencing as most all new devices have and we got a jem.... Build quality is not one.... I have faith

    As a Glock 20 wanter, I agree, this thing is plenty well built! I read about how people checked it out and didn't get it because if felt cheap? Are ya going to use it as a hockey puck?

    As a glock 17 owner and glock 18 dreamer I can also attest to the strengths of advanced plastics. We had quite a few plastic devices in the army and none broke(physically). Besides even the cheapest of smartphones would lose a screen before the body broke so the whole "you're phone is plastic" mentality is ignorant.

    Wow, lots of fire power in here! (I have an S&W 10mm and a 44mag). I doubt anyone will show up and smack talk! :D

Stainless Steel did a trigger job on it reduced single action from 14 lbs to 8 lbs single from 5.2 to 3 lbs and mirror finished all metal to metal trigger is like glass.. Drool factor of 10 heh

    Its all about application my friend, 10 mm on a bear is superb, but 10mm for concealed carry is wreckless

    Never understood the point of owning a gun, maybe since I live in a nice area I'm a bit jaded.

    No offense intended to those with guns obviously, don't want to be shot or anything.
