    You're saying existing phones are better than a ghost phone....lol.

    I dont understand how people make these absurd claims.

    I was getting scared reading peoples comments about how this phone will suck cause its not the right gpu and processor bla bla.

    Just let the phone come out first! I'm just hoping the battery can last a day. Gps to lock. I don't care what a benchmark says. I just want the phone to work well.

    I really hope I'm wrong. I'll make my decision if this phone is worth $299 when I have it in my hands. Just dont want this phone having same lag issues as bionic. Browsing sucked with bionic compared to galaxy s II.

    Also thinking of Nfc. If the razr had nfc the choice would be easy.

    Well I have the d1 and wanted the bionic bad, mainly because of the way Motorola built it up, but it came out after nine months of push backs.It sucks plus it has way too much wrong with it. You would think after all that time it would be perfect. All they wanted to do was sale a phone and didn't care about the people buying it. So I'm not buying another moto device because I don't support that kind of business! So I'm going for the Samsung but don't know why it only has a 5mgp camera. I know y'all are going to say that megapix doesn't matter but when you take a pix from far off and zoom in to save it. Then you'll see where those other three megapixs comes into play.

    Because it's going to turn 2 months old when the new phones come out, thus rendering it obsolete :biggrin:

    Perhaps, but you've also gotta account for the difference in display technology as well as the 4G vs. 3G radio. Not to mention the 1.2 GHz dual-core processor in the Razr compared to the 550 MHz single-core in the Droid 1. I think it's safe to say that we're going to have to wait and see how they stack up when it comes to battery life.

    Hey guys, I would probably side with the droid razr over the galaxy nexus for 4 reasons. 1.) Size matters to me...4.7 inches is waaaay too damn big for my taste, that thing probably will not fit in my jeans pocket all that well without significant difficulty. 2.) Build quality, droid razr with laser-cut kevlar fibers and corning gorilla glass vs. plastic materials on the nexus, no contest there. 3.) Battery life...I know this is an ongoing issue, however I feel that with the nexus, that 1,280 x 720 display will drain the hell out of the system, especially with LTE devices struggling to achieve 12 hours on a stock battery, droid razr will likely be able to best that, however that will require some tinkering with the device and then some. 4.) Camera, 5 MP vs. 8 MP, Samsung seriously couldn't go for the top-of-the-line camera after packing every known feature into the thing (and with galaxy s ii having 8 mp, seems like a no-brainer). Obviously my Droid 1's camera is inferior to a modern 5 MP of today, but I'd rather go straight for the 8 that Bionic and Razr offer. Hopefully I can get my hands on a razr, be an awesome device to have.:hail:

    They did have to make the device larger than a standard 4.3 phone but they took it out of the bezel... so it will only be single digit mm larger than the average 4.3. the razr is 5.15 x 2.71 x 0.28 (130.7 x 68.9 x 7.1 mm), and the nexus is 5.33 x 2.67 x 0.35 (135.5 x 67.94 x 8.94 mm).... see the difference? not that much... you get more real estate per inch with the nexus. Both devices have gorilla glass....but i do like the metal on moto. Camera is definitely a win for sammy. The mp is is nice but unless your printing posters the extra mp is a gimmick. Did you not see the video that showed all the improvements they made on the camera? The shutter speed is amazing. I haven't seen the razr's but i dout it will be that fast. Sammy really went for the quality camera and not the listed greatest spec. All mp means for us is the zoom. More mp means more zooming in. Im sorry if i sound more one sided but if you get over the sexyness of the razr and actually look the nexus seems to be the winner. But i can say the beauty of android is the fact that you can buy a device more tailored for your needs. If you need a phone thats locked down and uneasily hacked, has bloat which cant be removed unless the hackers spend days meticulously finding ways root, and really the sway factor for me is the slow OEM rollout of updates. Nexus series always gets updated first. i really plan on hacking my device which is kinda more the decider i guess.

    Where have you seen that the Nexus has gorilla glass? This has been one thing bugging me about the Nexus vs RAZR, I would be so happy to hear that the Nexus actually does have it. Can you point me to where this was confirmed? I haven't read it anywhere and I've been checking like a fiend...

Im almost positive i remember answering the question and seeing lots more replays to this thread. o_O maybe my browser at school glitched out but its weird because im at a separate computer on a different network. :blink:.

    I always assumed that every smart phone released after the Motorola Droid had gorilla glass. I guess not, huh.

    Hmmm, I'm not sure if this post was meant to be insulting or sarcastic, but I didn't see any posts with you (or anyone else for that matter) confirming the gorilla glass. I always assumed it was standard on smartphones these days but with Motorola specifically mentioning it during the RAZR announcement and Samsung saying nothing at all during the Nexus event, it makes me wonder. That's why I was hoping you heard something I had missed.

    Because sarcasm is tough to pick up on in written form, my bad. It can be hard to tell when someone is being sincere or not. After your post I did some Googling and found that same article you just posted, but I'm still hoping something more "official" comes out confirming it. Thanks for providing the link though.
