    Ok I have the galaxy s3 and am considering trading for a nexus. I had 3 separate nexus for Verizon but had way too many connection and battery issues to keep it. The s3 does not have the same issues I experienced. I do prefer the design of the nexus however and prefer the customizability. Have the connection and battery issues been resolved on the nexus???? Thanks.

    I was in the same boat as you last winter. I had 3 gnex's and at that time they all sucked.
    I recently got a hold of another one and I'm very pleased with this one. Its still a bit crappy with reception (compared to all my moto's) but no where near as bad as it was and Ive had great results with the battery life in this one. I charge it at night and it will last me all day with moderate use. :biggrin:

    What were you doing regarding customizability? Flashing ROMs?

    Battery issues are a forgotten problem with ROMs though radios remain roughly the same as long as it's on 4.0.4. I live in a strong Verizon area so I never have issues with signal.

    Do not trade the sg3 for a nexus. Just go online and check out eBay or swappa and buy a nexus. When you do get your nexus go jb. Been on jb since its release and will not be going back to ICS.

    My Nexus works perfectly - I'd consider a trade just because I'm making cases for the S3...

    Not that I would be happy about it - love the GN.

    Baseless statement.

    Anywho, i think that it had. I've had about three of these things and now I have a solid one. I'm flashing BB right now. :D Love me some Nexus openness.

    I think the form factor of the GN is far better than the S3.

    If you compare the two they are about the same size. They are both slippery phones :) And they are about the same speed.

    The S3 is sexier because it's new and because Samsung has been throwing money at it. They sold a ton of SII's and I bet they sell a ton of SIII's.

    I've spent time with both and I would choose the GN - I love it. The only reason I would switch is to be able to use the new cases I made for the SIII. I'm sure the SIII functionality is just as good.

    By the way - Verizon has the SIII off in the corner because they make more off the RAZR line. I had to ask where the SIII was to find it and it was in back and not featured.

    The other carriers sell it much harder. This Verizon/Motorola thing has to end.

    I didn't have connection issues with my GN. I also live in a great LTE area. Now have the S3. Again, no issues where I live.

    why? :icon_eek:

    is it because it has that screen wakeup marketing ploy that senses your eyes? :p that thing's about as useful as face unlock on the GN, which i've never used, nor had the desire to. samsung always sticks in a nice sounding, yet realistically useless marketing feature in it's phones :biggrin:
