    I have to tell you... I've owned the OG Droid for 2 years, then the Bionic, and now the Galaxy Nexus.

    This is by far the best phone I have ever owned.

    Yes it has some bugs to be fixed but all new phones do.

    And I will tell you after spending a ton of time at Verizon, this screen cannot be beat. The battery life is better than the Bionic. All around it's terrific.

    Same exact sentiments here! I was about through with Android because of the issues and terrible battery life. Nexus has saved the day so far!

    Is great heard that is a big trouble for many android devices, the battery life is the reason i will get a backup battery.

    I really like the phone as well.

    However, I'm personally noticing on my device a trend of random reboots each occurring sooner than the last... Basically had one within the first two days of having the device, then after about a week I began having one every day. Now today I had 2. I also notice the device seems to be heating up more often. I have tried resetting, doing battery pulls, etc. I already talked to VZW support to get my charger replaced as it was making a high pitched noise when plugged in but I'm thinking I might need the whole device replaced as well. Plus I also have a whole column of dead pixels. Its not noticeable on most tasks, but occaisionally it sticks out like a sore thumb.

    Despite the issues though, I really love the large display and ICS overall. I don't think the battery life is too bad either although I am using the extended.. but the regular battery got me through the day just fine as well!

    I have had only one reboot and that was on the second day.

    It does heat up when I'm doing a ton of downloading or playing a game for a long time (or talking on the phone) but it's not that bad.

    As far as I'm concerned if I can get 8-12 hours out of the battery before plugging it in that's more than enough for me. Especially since I plug it in all the time.

    By the way someone at Verizon told me that the "smart actions" on the RAZR were not helpful at all and in fact cost more energy than they save. It's a marketing tool for a battery you cannot extend or replace.

    Ummm Verizon sales reps = we know jack sh** about our devices. Smart action dose help trust me. They dont their a** from their elbow. They wanna sell you whatever is new. The razr is a great phone. Smart action dose save your battery i get 14 hours + when smart action is running with semi heavy use.

    I didn't say it was a sales rep.

    The RAZR isn't bad. It was my second choice but the screen was too terrible and the phone was not comfortable to hold.

    No need for that kinda language here :)

    Yes the consensus around here is we have members that have more info than Verizon reps but it is their job to sell phones after all. After working in a dealership myself I'll tell you 3/4 of the salesman don't know much about their cars that isn't found in a showroom pamphlet. They are sales people and its their job to sell, not know the device...though that does help with sales doesn't it. they keep their knowledge basic because they only tend to the general public not us techies on the boards :p

    I am + 1 on everything stated by SSHGuru. This has been a great phone. I I can't put it down as it is the ultimate toy. I haven't run InTo any issues at all and I am a 3 extended battery charges a day user. I have not had to do a single battery pull and have not had a forced reboot yet.

    My smartphone history.
    BlackBerry Storm (4 battery pulls a day) and next a Fascinate, first in town to get it and now the nexus. Long live Google phones.
