    Did you watch and listen to both videos? I think the videos and what he says throughout speak for themselves :)

    Re-watch them and you will see what device he actually favors.

    They need to fix that horrendous lag between landscape and portrait on the Nexus.

    To be perfectly honest I love what Moto did with their UI. Much more fluid, nice animations and the UI is themed to take advantage of the screen (Blacks)

    Stock 4.0 is not great looking. Dev community will fix that.

    This is Android's weakest link. It's not a great looking UI in it's naked form. It takes manufacturers and devs to make it look nice.

    The portrait to landscape lag on the GN is scary.

    I was really hoping he would long press on Madden 12 or Let's Golf because they are removable. The other bloatware is not, but I feel like they should do a little more tinkering before making false claims. Also, is the Nexus screen 4.65" total, but only 4.35" when you consider the on-screen buttons? He keeps referencing the bigger screen, but once you consider the buttons they would be nearly the same size...?

    Anyways, I am still considering the Nexus if the reviews are good, but I think people are too quick to write off how great the Razr actually is.

    I also think motorola has better hardware than Samsung. They just seem more durable.

    The lag on the Nexus makes me cry.....I couldn't care less about the camera but the lag :(
    Hopefully it can be fixed.

    Durable software? Google vanilla software is much better than any of the skinned android in my opinion

    I think it's just the opposite. Sammys have better software bu the radios and build are sub-par. Moto's hardware is second to only Apple (maybe) but their software is inferior.

    Yeah I agree. That was a typo. Sorry it meant to say software. Moto hardware is by far the best. Hence to why google made that purchase!
