    Why did they think comparing a 2 generation old phone with a new one was a good idea??

    Because their poll showed that a huge majority of people looking to upgrade to the Nexus still had the original Droid.

    It wasn't to prove how "awesome" the Nexus was, was just an informative comparison.

    Its kind of like comparing a model T to a 49 Ford. There is no comparison. But anyways....people always like comparing apples and oranges for posterity.

    I have to agree, this one's a no brain-er. It's like comparing Snooki to Megan Fox.

    how dare you call my phone a snooki! its like comparing a tank to a racecar. the tank is slow but will get you safely where you want to go. may even blow up a few things and cause them not to respond and the racecar. the racecar is spelled the same way it is forwards as its backwards. Thats all you need to know about it.

    I was happy to see the comparison for the very reason that I'm leaving my OG behind for a new phone. I'm not as concerned with how the Nexus is compared to the Razr - why? because that's been done. I want to know how these new phones compare to what i'm used to :) ...yes, hardware is better, but physical size makes a difference; the cameras make a difference, etc.. etc.. :p

    Snooki want smush-smush. Lmao!

    I wasn't calling the OG a Snooki but the concept of comparing the OG to the G-Nex is the same as my comparison. :D

    You still don't seem to understand why they did it, it's a spoof piece for original Droid owners because they asked DL to compare them.

    Every comparison doesn't have to have great meaning for it to be relevant.

    I understand why they did it. I just don't agree with the point of it. That's all. My opinion doesn't mean a lack of understanding.

    Has this comparison in some way offended you? Has it killed your dog? Did it set the rotation of the Earth off by a few degrees?

    Look bud, loosen up :) It's just a fun comparo for those customers who are upgrading from an OG Droid to a Galaxy Nexus. The point is to show those owners what the differences in the phones look like on paper.
