    He's trying to help you out by keeping your thread current.
    I just upgraded from the Thunderbolt to the SG3. Definitely a better phone, but it didn't change my life.
    I always recommend that you go to a Verizon store and try the phones out. The two you are contemplating are both well regarded on this forum.

    I'd be surprised if you don't get some owner's opinions. Except for some software complaints, I can give a thumbs up for the SG3. I had the reboots also, they would always hit when I was navigating and 10 minutes from my destination. Good luck.

    If you're asking me, I have an SG3, (8 mp) it is better than the Thunderbolt, but the Thunderbolt was pretty good, so the difference is not huge.

    The nexus is a great phone especially after official jelly bean.

    The battery is decent but everything else is great on it. In my opinion it's the best phone on Verizon.
