    It's a good solid device, but I'd pass on it and get her a Galaxy SIII. It's a much better device. Preorder it before this Thursday and you'll be able to keep your unlimited data (if you have it).

    If you guys like to root and rom the Nexus would be fine. If not, the SGS3 or the Razr Maxx.

    Good choice. She'll be a happy woman. I'm preordering one for my wife tomorrow.

    Most likely scenario: my wife will eventually end up with my Nexus and I'll upgrade myself to her SIII. ;)

    The Nexus is nice. However, going to upgrade the wife to the Galaxy S3 because of shared data.

    Love my nexus. Worth the price for 400 buck. I think i won't go for galaxy SIII. Pricey and touchwiz. Stock ICS simply better

    honestly, its the worst phone i ever owned. i highly regret buying it. i've had 3 so far. first, no reception at all. even after hard resets, swapping of sim cards, etc. Received the second phone, again, no service, no matter where i went. i kept having to pull the battery. Not to mention, the battery drain. I had a standard and extended. I would take my phone off the charger and 3 minutes later, without me doing anything on it, the battery was down to 95%. So, i send it back. As of right now, i have no 4g service. I took it to a verizon store, it took a half hour to connect. It goes in and out all the time. Some may say its not the phone, just the service, but i have been with verizon for years, and never experienced anything like this. I cant even access tapatalk. My bars go from full to empty. 4g icon to no icon. I will be getting rid of this phone immediately.

    FYI, this is normal. Charging is programmed this way so that constant charging doesn't destroy the battery.

    When you have your phone plugged in and charge it to 100%, the phone will then stop charging. The phone will appear to be charging and show 100% even though it's not. Once the phone drops below 93-95% (whatever it is, I'm not sure) the phone will then recharge itself back to 100% and repeat the process. Every android phone does this in some form to prolong battery life. I rarely pull my phone off the charger and have it at 100%. Usual around 97%.

    ok, but if i take it off the charger, and it shows 100%. then i immediately turn the screen off, without doing anything at all. it will drop? then not to mention, i can check on it 15 minutes later, and its still dropping. mind you, i have not done anything on the phone. wifi and bluetooth are off. no animated wallpaper. no calls, no games or email. Its not the battery, because i have several and it happens with all of them.
