    So Verizon offered to trade my bionic in for a nexus last Friday. (I have had 4 bionics with headphone jack problems, screen pixels dying, and the latest...a jacked camera.) The phone got here at 9:00 am and the battery (shipped separately) is still not here!!!!!! I get off of work in 80 minutes and counting. No one will be here to receive it for me. C'mon Fed Ex, this thing is burning a hole in my desk!! NEED TO TRY MY NEW TOY SOON. Anyway, what should I do first with this device??? Any suggestions at all. What is your favorite part of your nexus?

    I'd unlock/root it. If you're into that sort of thing. ;)

    Go right for a rom, I love AOKP with IMOs kernel. AOKP or Gummy will have all the mods you will need to get customized. Most importantly enjoy and learn everything you can as it will make any problems you might encounter super easy to resolve. This phone is beyond awesome.

    Battery came yesterday around 4:30. I have to be honest.....this really does blow the bionic away!!! Wow. Very impressed. Only complaint I have so far is that the speaker is a lot weaker than the Bionic. The camera however....I am shocked. Its a lower mp cam and still far better shots than moto. Definitely made the right move!!!!! This thing is crazy! Gonna give it a day or two before unlock and root...just because it is so new.
