    Is anyone else getting tired of waiting for the Nexus? ... now that some video reviews are out there, are you more excited or less?


    The razor looks like a tough phone, hardware wise. And very solid all the way around. I am currently a Droid X user, So at this time I don't have anything bad to say about Motorola.

    I'm just saying, that Razr price is dropping offly fast.

    Been waiting for the nexus for months.. I've considered the Razr, but I'm definitely waiting for the nexus. I know if I get the razr, I will have regrets once the nexus comes out. It's only going to be a few more weeks.. I can wait. I'm extremely excited to see a UI with no bloatware!

    I've been waiting for a Nexus device on VZ since last year , I'm not gonna settle for a bloated sub-par device like RAZR just because they glued some useless Kevlar on it's back .

    If the release really is Dec 8 then you only got a week to go. I would say just wait it out then you'll be able to compare

    Please elaborate on this. I finally got some hands on with a unit yesterday and have my thoughts on it just want to know why you don't recommend it. (Not trying tto start an argument just want your opinion on it)

    I bought the Razr for the main fact im tired of being lead around for weeks waiting for this Nexus that seems to have its on set of issues. I have rooted and froze apps I dont care for and this thing rocks. It would take a quad core phone for me to get rid of it now. I dont want the cheap feeling Nexus, all sammy phones feel very cheap built and plastic like. But to each their own. The Razr will have ICS very soon. Heck at this rate it will have a port of it before this elusive Nexus device gets released. If it does get released before my 30 day exchange is up I will go give it a look and try. But it will ( like i have said before ) take a heck of a phone for me to trade my Razr off.

    I am not trying to start anything either I just wanted to share my thoughts on the Razr. And as far as people and bad battery life on the Razr, well those people need to grow up and learn to use a phone. I can get a full day of very heavy use. In the last 8 days I have used 10gigs worth of data and dont need to charge it until after about 8 hours. That 8 hours is with very heavy use. If I only use it moderately can get more than 12 hours easy. For a 4g phone I think that is very good.

    Like I said not trying to start anything just throwing out a lil info from my own experience. What ever you decide just make sure you try it out for a few days then make a decision.

    If you are looking at the handset for LTE speed, the RAZR will be every bit as fast as the G-Nexus, and at a lower price. If you 'need' the larger screen real estate of the G-Nexus, then that becomes the determining factor. Personally, I needed the network speed over the screen real estate, and the RAZR had enough screen real estate to satisfy my needs. By middle of next year, the G-Nexus and RAZR will be obsolete, and we will be wanting the next best thing (quad-cores, and, and, and).

    With the entry price of the RAZR dropping, it might be the better buy.

    Gotcha.

    I was extremely disappointed with the screen on the Razr. It wasn't as sharp as my Inc and the unit I was demo'ing had an off color throughout the screen, hint of green. Not a fan of Moto's skin either.

    Good points:)

    RAZR is not worth it. Rezound it.....just sayin. or you could wait for the phantom Nexus. If you have the patience, wait for the nexus. See what the popular thoughts of it are, then make your decision on whether or not to get a RAZR or Nexus then. But I'm telling, having been through 6 phones in 3 months....rezound it.

    If HTC is not your cup o tea, cool. If you are open to that idea of trying a different phone from the Moto or Samsung lineup....rezound it. Check the RAZR forums and then check the Rezound forums. See what everyone is saying about each of them. Then you can further make your decision. For now, the Nexus is a myth of a machine. You don't truly know if it will be as beastly as they say until you use it for a week or so. So if you have the patience unlike myself, just wait on it.

    If you want a thrill of a lifetime (as far as phones go) REZOUND IT! DO IT NOW!
