    I have a Moto Droid and plan on updating in January, any ideas on which phone is or would be a good choice? I have Verizon if that matters. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Looks like the competitors are the Galaxy Nexus, Razr, and Rezound
    They each have pros and cons, compare for your self and see which you want.

    My advice would be to not even pay attention to the specs. Play with them in store and see what you like best. Try not to get too hung up on the fact that the nexus will have ICS, since all 3 will have it pretty quick. The one word of caution I would give you is that (if you are a power user) the razr doesn't have a removable battery, so swapping or getting an extended battery is out, right now.

    I have a Droid bionic right now and i love it. But im going to be upgrading to the Galaxy Nexus later this month. If you can wait for a few weeks i would suggest the Nexus. Its supposed to have a great battery.

    My upgrade is available on Monday (11/14) and I'm between getting the RAZR or the Bionic. I like the feel of the Bionic compared to the OG Droid, but the RAZR is definitely a very sexy device. Bigger wow factor with the RAZR and it fits in my jeans front pocket nicely. I'm more worried about what a ski crash might do and if the Bionic would be a more sturdy phone. I rooted my OG Droid, but I don't think I will need to unless ICS gets delayed for the RAZR.

    I think on just a cool factor alone, the RAZR beats the Bionic. I don't like the Nexus Prime's plastic backside. The OG Droid was a tank, and still is.

    The Bionic has issues, I sell phones and I have seen quite a few problems with the Bionic...which sucks because it has been the phone to wait for since Feb. Its a battle between the Nexus and the Razr currently and idk which to get yet lol.

    For me its between the Galaxy Nexus, Droid Razr and Iphone4s. Ultimately I want to see real user reviews of ICS before deciding

    Anyone's new thoughts on which phone?
    Seems both the Razr and GNex have some connection problems. Which to choose?

    ICS is Ice Cream Sandwich, it's Android latest operating system.

    You're blessed with several great choices and cursed by the fact that each is better at something. Because of this, there's real value in the suggestions by others that you go to a store and try them all out. In addition, because of the sizes and shapes of these phones, you may find something is just plain uncomfortable to hold even though you may like all the features. But as a primer:

    If you like accessories, appreciate high quality build materials, want something super thin, want removable memory storage and don't mind a non-removable battery, look to the Droid RAZR. If you want all that and more battery and don't mind losing some thinness to get it, wait just a little longer for RAZR Max.

    If you want the highest resolution screen, best camera, both removable storage and battery and like what Dr. Dre does with music, look to the HTC Rezound.

    If you want a phone optimized for Google's newest version of Android, want the biggest screen and punchiest colors, want a removeable battery but don't mind non-removeable memory storage, don't want a phone manufacturer's modified user interface or apps permanently installed by Verizon and want the fastest updates to the Android operating system, look to Samsung's Galaxy Nexus.
