    I got the thunderbolt after months of delays because "it was the newest coolest phone out." Little did I know that it was a "beta" 4g phone basically. I'm still having problems with it freezing to where I have to pull the battery.

    I'm beginning to lean towards the razr for this reason. Am I making a bad decision comparing the nexus to the thunderbolt with both being the first of their kind?

    How is the nexus comparable to the thunderbolt in anyway?

    I agree. How is it comparable? And why do you think the RAZR will have less bugs than the Nexus when the Bionic has data, reboot and music playback issues?

    If anything you could make the comparison that the Rezound may have similar issues as the Thunderbolt, since they're made by the same manufacturer, but even that's a stretch with no merit honestly.

    Comparing the Nexus to the Thunderbolt is as they say, Apples to Oranges.

    I think the main arguement you can make is that this is a google phone. its vanilla. however, it is the "beta" ice cream sandwich like you said. for this reason, im going to wait a week or two after​ its released to see how it is.

    or, you can use your 14 day return to retain your upgrade eligibility ;-P in case you don't like it.

    But, looks like to some manufacturers, any new Android OS version is like a beta, due to their own UI tweaks and crap...

    WTF? First of their kind? What are you talking about? Are you referring to LTE and ICS? If so, these are completely different things. Yes, I think you're insane comparing these two devices. Simply ridiculous.

    i think the OP meant thunderbolt being the most anticipated phone at the time & g nexus being the most anticipated phone of the present time...and if the g nexus will follow the same road as the thunderbolt did and turning out to be not so great

    Still, the hype for the Nexus puts the blunderbolt to shame. No comparison.
