    Pretty much unless it's not an LTE phone or is low end like the Stratosphere.

    premium phone, premium price.

    I bought a Moto Slvr back in the day for $299 when it first came out and I would gladly pay $299 for my Inc all over again because it does so much more. So to me, it's quite a bargain for what we get for $299 now

    I'm starting to hope for the govt to step-in on contract pricing. Besides locking people in (which I think is probably ok), it's artificially propping up the prices. We aren't getting that much more for prices to jump $100. It went to $249 for the TBolt, which I can kind of understand for LTE, but another $50 for what - dual core? In all other electronic industries, we've gotten better tech and content with prices holding steady, actually decreasing in most cases.

    Tech specs aside, the RAZR has the thin factor going for it. Putting aside rational / logical thought, the average person walking into Verizon wants a phone that is fast, looks pretty and is light/thin/"cool" to show off to friends. While we (as tech geeks) know what the Nexus is from a possibility standpoint, most users will look at the RAZR and think "oooh cool, it's so thin! And I LOVED my old RAZR! I'll get this one." The Nexus looks very similar to the previous Galaxy S series devices, and a lot like an iPhone (to the average consumer).

    Of course, these same people might look at "Android 4.0" vs. "Android 2.3.x" and immediately assume "oh, this RAZR is old, I want the newer one."

    For me... RAZR. I'm not a developer, and got all of the ROM-flashing out of my system during the first year or so with my OG Droid. Now I just want a phone that runs flawlessly without crashing on important things like phone calls and corporate email. I'll take the thinner, tough-as-nails form factor of the Moto over the "customization" of the Nexus since I'm not going to be screwing with the phone any more.

    You seriously want the government to control phone prices?

    It's not mostly the rom'ing factor that attracts me to the Nexus, but more so the OTA update factor. Nexus phones are updated rapidly, and it will always be nice to know that for the most part, I will be running the "latest and greatest" from Google. In addition, the Nexus series is considered the epitome of Android, and that is what I want. I want how Android was initially intended to be, without bloatware and off-the-wall color schemes. I consider the rom'ing factor simply a benefit, not a reason to buy the phone. Having the choice to load roms will at the very least keep my phone tolerable during my contract period. That's why, in my opinion, it is a win-win. You've got the choice to have the latest from Google or the ability to load a plethora of custom roms to your liking.

    I think people are discounting Moto too quickly, given the recent acquisition by Google. I wouldn't be shocked to see Google loosen the reigns on Motorola handsets once the deal is 100% complete. What then? Now suddenly Googarola's devices might be unlocked and rapidly updated as well. The fact that ICS is destined for the RAZR as soon as it is suggests this could be possible.

    While I understand the bloatware, most of it can be replaced / hidden / removed with different applications or skins. Since most people who tinker with the phone will do that to their Nexus phones anyway, what difference does it make? Especially if the RAZR is expandable through a memory card (plenty of room for apps beyond the crap preloaded by Moto/VZW).

    I'm not saying people should buy the RAZR over the Nexus; I just think the RAZR deserves a LOT more respect than its getting from the Android community.
