    I have an opportunity to get rid of my Bionic and get the Galaxy Nexus. Is the phone as awesome as I want it to be? Should I go for it?

    Honestly I get way better battery life then my D1. Now if you hang on 4g and surf the web it's going to drain the battery faster for sure. 4.0.4 is better yet since a bug was fixed keeping the phone awake. My g/f doesn't complain at all and she uses facebook all the time. She came from a D1 as well. We do have the extended batteries which adds next to nothing to the size of the phone. She is still running stock 4.0.2 locked and not rooted... YET :)

    Then I will probably go for the GNex. I have been waiting on it since I heard whispers of the, then called, "Prime."

    Why wait? Get a phone you can enjoy now. I absolutely love my GNex. I've had all of Verizon's top offerings and I wouldn't trade my GNex for any 2 of them.
