    I went from RAZR to Nexus and I love the Nexus much more. Got it rooted right away , installed the softkey patch , custom kernel , auto-brightness patch to get rid of those noisy screens.
    Now, does anybody knows a way to put those Pandora controls on the lock-screen ?

    I got mine on on launch day, I was # 4 in a line of about 20, but #2 to get one once in the store. No I didn't jump ahead...I even told the VZ dude that I wasn't next, he didn't care, do I didn't complain. Anyways on to the review, I don't know where all the hate is coming from in regards to calling this phone cheap. My first impression was all positive, yes the back is flimsy when removed. However is attaches very securely. The phone feels very sturdy, there is no flex when pressed or any sensation that is is hollow in any way. There are no residual plastic from casting evident. That being said, I have no idea why there are tons of reviews accusing this phone to be a POS. Ridiculous, I am happy...day 3 so far so good! Hoping my battery will improve :/ extended

    I agree, phone definitely doesn't seem cheap to me. On the contrary I like the grippy back and it's so friggin light, especially toting my all-metal og droid for 2 years. Unlock and root was easy on the Nexus. Haven't found anything this phone can't do. It was great fun helping out a friend via Teamviewer on LTE while talking to them on the phone at the same time. :-D

    Well I placed my order for my GNex on Friday (will arrive Monday morning) and what an ordeal....but I will "officially" be a GNex owner come Monday. I gave my D1 a new home and will surely miss it, but even the best of things must come to an end.

    So how do you guys like the Nexus? Is it all you expected, more or less? Cant decide between Nexus or Razr. Both are so close.:blink:

    got mine last fri. loving it so far. it's like having a mini tablet. it is quite big, but it doesn't feel big because of how light it is and thin. I am surprised though that it didn't feel as plasticy to me as other sammy phones. it actually feels pretty solid like a moto phone. i'm glad i waited for this phone. camera is blazing fast and hd screen is amazing.

    I've had mine for two days and I love it. I compared the Nexus and the Razr in the store, and while I thought the screen looked better on the Razr, it was ICS that sold me on the Nexus. The ability to make folders is awesome...now I can have tons of apps on just one screen, leaving the rest open for widgets. I can't wait for the Xoom to be upgraded to ICS so I can use this feature on it. 4G is smoking fast (at least here in Portland). The feel of the phone is thin and light, but not 'cheap'. The only downside so far is the battery life, but I'm playing with it so much, that's not helping matters. :happy3:
