    A good radio is a must. Since reception sucks at home even with my DROIDX.

    How much do they want for the maxx? I can get the nexus free from BB, and that's the catch. Wife said free or forgetaboutit. :-(

    Then you want the Maxx!
    I have both. I never have any problems at all with dropped calls or any other problems while talking on the phone with the Maxx. The nexus on the other hand, drops calls and/or signal from time to time.

    Another thing I hate are screen covers and cases, which will be needed on the nexus, but not on the maxx right? Gorilla glass on the maxx correct? Thanks.

    razor maxx is the only way i just ditched my nexus what a hunk of junk dropped signal and network all the time everyday..
    went to nexsus forums and found others have same issues... new maxx is 1 week old rooted and not one single drop or network loss..

    IT WAS THE PHONE NEXSUS = P.O.S



    i paid 199 for the nexus and they gave me a rebate of 150 as trade in i will not cry over the 50 doallrs trust me the phone is crap

    I have a nexus and have yet to have a signal issue with this one. It depends where this question is asked on the respounce your gonna get. If you wanna root and romm and enjoy the freedom of android the Nexus is the clear winner. If you want a phone with a longer lifespan the Nexus is the clear winner.

    After 6 Galaxy Nexuses, Vzw let me change to a Maxx in lieu of going with Nexus # 7. For me, I loved GNex as a device - rooting, ROMing, tweaking, etc ... but I came to despise GNex as a phone! Horrendous call quality, noises / squealing / beeping, etc while on calls. I need something that functions as a phone first and foremost .... over a week on the Maxx now and I have yet to experience call issues like I did on my GNex. And honestly, I don't even miss ROMing and such (I know Maxx has support, I just haven't played) ... don't miss looking for the the latest and greatest ROM. Just enjoying having a fully functional *phone*!!!

    Your still going to need a case with the maxx. I broke the screen in a case no way I would not have a cover. Personally the maxx is the choice I would go with but its not free with upgrade yet.

    Sounds like you have your answer. Get the Nexus because it's free. Of course, I always wonder why something is free.

    Well I have dropped mine several times without even a scratch. I am inclined to think that it broke because it was in the case.

    well, the gorilla glass may be great if you're a dropper, but it's fingerprint city. It does however wipe clean with just a tissue.
