    sucks that the Galaxy Nexus has a lower quality screen then the Galaxy S2 and the S2 screen wasn't great by any means. The larger screen will only magnify the lower quality.


    not to mention no gorilla glass and no SD card slot either. For this being their flagship device it looks like its missing alot.

    I love the calling all commercial. That is how a phone commercial should be. Yes the Droid commercials can be cool but they in no way show what the phones are capable of. I think Google nailed it with that commercial.

    You mean to say that a commercial showing a device slicing through telephone poles, buildings, etc does not show a device's true capabilities? I am sorry but we will have to agree to disagree...

    Nice, I thought the kevlar would have saved it oh well.

    But on a serious note I agree with your first statement. All too often, basically always, commercials show nothing of the product they are selling. It is nice to see one that does for a change.

    Yes, this commercial is awesome. Engrossing and emotional, plus it resonates with you. Google should whore this on primetime tv.

    From the FAQ on Verizon's website:

    Q. My Droid RAZR (tm) does not slice through objects, like rocks, metal poles or even flesh. What can I do to allow this feature?
    A. Please make sure your Droid RAZR (tm) is fully charged, the Kevlar backing is facing down or away from the object, and the the bottom of the device is the first to make contact when trying to slice through objects.

    Yeah because an HD screen with higher pixel density is a lower quality screen. I'll agree with you on the Gorilla Glass but the glass they're using combined with a curved screen will make it just as hard to break as any flat Gorilla screen. Keep in mind, if you drop this flat on its face, it's only going to hit the top and bottom because its curved, meaning a much less likely chance of cracking. Also, itll feel nicer on your faces since most people have rounded faces as opposed to box heads.

    Might seem silly, but I see that instead of the "Google" logo on the back cover, the device in the videos is showing a "Verizon 4G LTE" logo instead. I'd much rather just have the "Google" logo.

    ^^ Nice comparison pic. Either way I know the screen will be nicer than my current device so I will be happy I am sure.

    Well, if you look here at 0:15 in 1080p/Fullscreen :

    The cross-hatched nature of the pentile display is quite evident. Granted, it is fairly zoomed in, but it is still there. I'll wait to pass judgement till I get my hands on it at a store (if they stock any), but I was sorely disappointed with the Razr screen, and I'm still waiting to find a decent phone that betters my OG screen. I wish the Razr or the Nexus had the Rezound screen.

    WTF, it's a four and a half inch screen... How super high quality do you need? The pics above are super magnified already and they are both clear enough.

    I'm just looking forward to my first new phone since the D1 and to not have something as thin as the Razr, and with a battery that is a little better than the Rezound. After holding the Razr, no way would I buy it. Though the Rezound does feel good in my hands, I don't do iTunes type music so I'd be hoping to get super great music from sat radio or Pandora. lol
