    well, my gnex survive another fall/drop (ran over by snow mobile before). was getting some weird car noises, couldnt figure it out. so i zip tie (3 of them) the gnex to the upper control arm. proceed to drive got up to 40mph (thats when noise started). slow down to a stop go check, phone is gone. :blink: so i had to retrace by running along the street. LOL ran for 1/2 miles, mind you i been seeing other cars driving down the street also, so i was like there goes the phone. BUT i saw it in the middle of the street, battery out, lid slid away, BUT it survive! the cars didnt ran it over, they ran the cover over. :icon_ lala::biggrin::biggrin: put the battery back on, power it up, works perfect. :D no scratch on the screen just the corners.

    ps..i still have insurance on mine so i wasnt to worry. :D

    I am so use to my GNex. I was thinking nexus 4 is going to be moto bit then I guess I have to wait a little bit longer. Different custom ROMs swap and a couple of really nice launchers is keeping me busy. Anybody has a link to pie chart launcher?

    Not of hand, but I do recall it is located at xda if that helps at all... :D
    Also is baked into Davros's rom Droid Concepts over at Droid-hive if you feel like playing with a whole new rom.

    I am still a happy GNex user. And I am still around, but I am not as active on forums as I used to be able to be. Not as much free time, and the free time I do get I have been recently putting into video games. I still build and flash ROMs for my device at least once a week.

    Well I upgraded to the s4 as of 7/3, was a good 18mo run. Even sold it and got a pretty good amount for it to cover around 70% of my new s4:hail:

    I kept my nexus. Put groove ip on it and use it as a home phone. Mainly use it if my note 2 is close to dead I can charge it up and use my gnex for calls.

    Still using my Galaxy Nexus, have't had any problems with it. Wish they'd make a new one on Verizon, would be the only thing I'd be interested in purchasing. Sadly, what we're getting on Verizon is a bit disappointing.

    The One looks interesting, but sense + the button layout, and the fact that it's essentially 6-8 months old is a bit of a turn off.

    Moto X is just around the corner. August 23rd I believe. Or maybe wait for the Droid Ultra!

    I'm well aware of them, and neither interest me to be honest. Moto still has a while before Google can help mold them into a better company. Droid Ultra just doesn't look right.

    Go s4 or htc and install the Google experience software or aosp ROM.
