    Engadget had a cool feature showdown for the just launched Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Motorola Droid RAZR. It gives a head-to-head comparison of some of the biggest features. Perhaps this simple breakdown will help folks with their purchasing decision.

    If you are like me, it just keeps you on the fence. Both these phones look amazing! :(

    This is the first time I might actually get both phones. I was liking what I saw from the Fascinate last year but was still happy with my Droid X1. I think imma get both...lol.

    One advantage, although not sure how much of an advantage it is, is that the RAZR can take a 32gig SD (I wonder if it can someday take a 64gig SD with a software update?). Perhaps an immaterial criteria, but for someone who travels a lot and has a few spare USB sticks, I kind of like the option for additional storage.

    Cloud might be nice (but not that cheap, relatively speaking) but I worry about lag on 3G coverage.

    32 gigs is a lot, but I can fill that up just with music.

    I wonder if that HD FFC will make a difference.

    I guess you could take it either way. I just know they said the Razrs FFC can record 720p video.

    Advance to 3:10

    WOW what a decision to make with my upcoming upgrade!

    Do I go Geeky and advanced... or rugged and beastly?

    Guess it's time for a toin coss!! LOL

    Edit....Crap.... I was watching further in the video

    Go to 4:17 in the video and look at what's in the apps main menu on the phone...lots of bloatware.... @#THER****ER.:mad:

    Guess it time to check out the sammy .. I really don't know why they do this crap. It does nothing except piss off the customer.

    They really don't define hd though. Do they just have a narrower field of view thus the pixels are all used on the face? I truly dont see a 720 recording from that front facing camera. I'm wrong a lot though. Im more curious about the splash proofness of the device. I really wish Moto made the nexus and gave it a splash proof stuff... Would be amazing.

    Video calls are bad enough...do you REALLY want people to see your face in up-close hi-def?
