    Lol. Aren't you sick of all the "returned my nexus" threads? Especially when one of the reasons is beats?...oh that drives me nuts. Grab DSP manager and pump up your bass. You'll hardly even notice a difference.

    The only "real" knock on the Nexus is no removable storage, but I'm not a media whore so 32 GB is plenty for me. Plus MTP transfers much faster.

    Out at the moment. I'll try to remember to post a link when I get back. I believe you can find it over at XDA though.

    I'd get volume+, it works perfect and can make it very loud. Definately recommend.

    Ouch! I do agree though, too much dropped data over too many different phones.

    Hey, just wanted to chime in...

    I was out shopping yesterday with the girlfriend, and noticed that I had "full bars" for my 4G connection, so I went into settings and looked...

    -75dBm!!!! I don't check it often, but I was getting really frustrated and actually considering returning the phone due to it always being like -110 to -135 when I had checked, but now I am much happier! This was also in the middle of a large shopping area (not in a mall), no VZW store within 4-5 miles (no grabbing from their 4G hotspots), and there were probably well-over 3-4k people in this area at the time (68 stores, 7 restaurants; from Pier 1 and Sur la Table to Gamestop and a giant bookstore, Old Navy and TJ Maxx to Nordstrom Rack and Brooks Brothers, even an independent and very highly-renowned tailor who will custom-make suits that are absolutely wicked and can stand toe-to-toe with the best Brioni or Canali suit). To put it another way, there are over 1300 parking spots in the area, and it took us over 5 minutes to find a place to park (the lot was like 99.7% full).
    Of course, everyone was walking around on their cell phone, talking, texting, browsing, whatever... Yet I still pulled that good of a signal!

    AND this is on a STOCK ICS 4.0.2 GNex, no Root or custom ROM or anything!

    VERY pleased!!


    Now, if only they fix this darn battery "life" (more like battery "death") problem....

    I would like to chime in on something that i have found out. Remember when 4G 1st came out to verizon and some people were doing tests online and they said that they lost connection in buildings? Well its the type on technology that LTE is that causes things to interfere more, mainly buildings. Thats my theory. Now onto the phone itself... i have had 3 to 4 bars on LTE but have see from -93 to -73dB. Right now its -92dB and 48 asu and 3 bars. (whats that mean anyways?) BTW signal strength on my OG droid is -63 with 3 bars. I will also include some speed tests:
