    Why are well-respected phone information sources like wirefly and phonedog highlighting the Nexus as the best phone on the market when there are numerous issues with it? The Rezound has better specs all the way around, yet the Nexus is better?? I don't get it. Does the fact that it has factory ICS completely make up for the issues of the phone? Seriously... a phone with reception and signal issues is the best??

    Only issue I have is with battery drain, but I expect that to be fixed in the next couple weeks.

    Even with that, it's the best phone I've owned hands down.

    Most Galaxy Nexus owners DONT have issues at all, myself included. Keep in mind that people with issues are a lot more noticeable (with their complaints) than people without issues.

    Most people don't have issues, so that's why. The minority who have issues are always more vocal and rightfully so. It just seems like there's "all these problems" because this is where people come to figure out their problems. If you check the Rezound forums and the Razr forums you'll still find people having signal/data issues, it's a common problem with LTE devices. Other problems you hear about the Nexus are usually due to software not being updated yet. The problem is most people think it's the phone because they're inexperienced, but it's just growing pains for being the first phone with ICS. If the Rezound or Razr had come with ICS, it would have the same software issues that the Nexus owners sometimes run into, because the problems are software driven. The most important thing to remember is that because Google directly updates the Nexus, it will receive all ICS updates first and it will be the most compatible as well.

    Ummmm...over at Phonedog, they picked the Skyrocket (SGS2) over the GNex in their dogfight. Not sure where you are getting your info from.

    And yes, ICS makes that big a difference. I could never go back to a previous version of Android after using the Nexus.

    I don't know most people so I can't say what issues they have or do not have.

    It is not the best phone I've owned due to the voice dialing not being as efficient as my previous Droids and the javascript problems in the browser.

    Neither the "new toy" factor nor the pre release hype are enough for me to ignore it's obvious problems.

    That said, I do not have signal, wifi, usb transfer, or bootloop issues.
