Just wanted to say hello. I'm coming from a Resound, but I've been having so many problems that I asked about getting a different phone. They gave me the option of a razr or a nexus. Definitely didn't want the razr, so here I am.

Is there anything I should know or be on the lookout for with these?

Thanx,
Justin

Congrats and have fun trying not to become a flash-aholic. ;)

I am a newly and proud owner of the G'Nex myself. 1 day old and counting. Came from the HTC Thunderbolt. WHAT-AN-UPGRADE! :D

Here's what I've learned so far.

- AOKP 4.2 on the G'Nex is AWESOME! I could be wrong but I think the ROM tweaks the screen colors and speakerphone levels - two issues that people commonly complain about.
- Battery life seems sketchy. My 1850mah Samsung battery barely lasted half a day. Definitely pickup a spare and a charger that will also externally charge a battery.
- I'm not sure if you were running Sense on the Rezound, but the pure Google Experience is wonderful. It truly made me realize how dull and restricting the Apple interface feels.

I was running Sense, both HTC version and sense based rom. I'm so excited for a pure OS. The Rezound I dropped about 1% every minute, so it can't be worse than that.

Thanks for the welcomes.

I wish more phones ran pure, or at the very least, a manufacturer-specific overlay that's closer to the Google Experience (a la modern Touchwiz fits the bill). Even the newer Sense seems clunky and slow.
