Monday Poll: Now That All Three Have Been Announced – Galaxy Nexus, Rezound, or RAZR?

A number of readers have been asking, so we decided to do it one last time. With all three of Verizon’s mega-phones receiving official announcements, it’s time to do the poll prior to them all hitting store shelves (hopefully they all do). You were all asked back in early October if the Galaxy Nexus was going to be your phone no matter what. Almost 60% of you were willing to say “yes” at that time, prior to it even being announced. Now that the RAZR and Rezound are also on the way – and possibly a couple of weeks before the G-Nex – has your mind changed at all? Tell us which phone will be your next.

Since all three phones are official, which are you choosing: Galaxy Nexus, Rezound, or DROID RAZR?

  • the G-Nex looks small and a little funny in the group picture.  Common’ Kellex, I know you know photoshop…  😉

  • Lets consider this:

    Really Locked
    Google Phone…

    hmmm… Nexus ftw


    SGS3 will end up smoking all these phones.  One thing everyone here knows: All 3 of these phones will be yesterday’s tech in less than 6 months.

    FTW !!!

  •  Can’t choose… Rezound or Nexus?

    • joejoe509

      Both are great. Throw a dart or eenie miney moe works pretty good.

      In all seriousness… I get you gotta get all down and dirty with the specs and decide what’s most important to you. Worst case scenario, don’t be a first adopter. Wait it out and play with both side by side in the store.

  • I’d say over 8000 people is not a small community lol. Thats more than my whole town. o.O

  • Duck Dodgers

    Seriously though, yall surprised everyone wants the G-Nex? Vanilla OS and developer support is the whole point of this small community of Android followers.

  • Smokin Joe (R.I.P)

    The D4 is coming out when? [email protected], these phones are getting bigger and bigger. They’re getting close to being mini-tablets instead something I can throw in my pocket.

  • Joejoe509p

    Anything but the RAZR. HD screen or bust. HD screens are the future and ICS was designed for these resolutions. Anything less and you’ll be left behind.

  • Pete

    #1 requirement for me is a removable battery, so the RAZR is out.  With the battery life we see on Android phones, being able to swap out for a fresh one when you get low is a must have.  After that it’s the best overall features and the G-Nex and Rezound are nearly even in everything with 2 major differences: one has removable storage, the other has stock Android UI and no bloatware.  Doesn’t that seem like a no brainer?  Unless the reviews show that the G-Nex is just a horrible phone that chews up batteries like Nicorette gum, crawls slower than molasses at Christmas, and sounds like you’re making calls on a $10 walkie talkie then I don’t see why someone would want any other phone.

    • joejoe509

      Well said.

    Droid Life needs to run this poll again in a couple weeks because I’m still just not quite sure if the Nexus will be the dominant leader.

    “In terms of speed, the 1.5GHz dual-core should really snap. It doesn’t, though. There was noticeable lag throughout the OS, and while it’s not nice to point fingers, you’ve got to look at Sense 3.5 here. It’s a pretty overlay, and some people absolutely love it. I never have. I’ve found it (and Samsung’s TouchWiz and Motorola’s MotoBLUR) to consistently slow down operating systems. And sadly, it’s likely not the only thing it’s going to slow down. They announced today that the Rezound is Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) ready, but I have it from an HTC rep that they will only bring Ice Cream Sandwich to the Rezound (and their other phones) after they have figured out how to adapt Sense to it.”

    Wow – 75% of the 10,000 want the Nexus! The excitement over a release is palpable. So many people holding their wallets ready for any bit of news. It’ll all be over in a couple of weeks and we’ll all be holding the dang thing in disbelief 

  • Snowbomb7

    I wil never ever buy another HTC product again in my life! They ruined their reputation with me and as a result, will never buy another of their product again!

  • Stangcf2

    I would go with the samsung if it had HDMI out. Thats my big deal breaker and all plastic, no sd slot? Im not liking that. lm thinking droid razr. Grrr battery.

    • HDMI is provided via an adapter.

    • joejoe509

      The Nexus has an HDMI out via the MHL (mini USB) port on the bottom. It’s actually an elegant solution. Having one port do two things is less cluttered. The biggest problem for me is that you need some special adapter to allow it to be charged and also display HDMI at the same time. Watching a video is predictably draining on the battery. I’d like to use my Nexus as a mini-Netflix machine.

  • RAZR has a non-removable battery and a locked bootloader
    Galaxy Nexus has no SD card
    Rezound, I guess? I dunno what’s wrong with it, yet, anyway

  • boo Jay

    I want the Nexus, but something tells me I’ll end up getting the Rezound.  HTC products are simply so sexy to use and natural to the touch.  The thought that goes into their phones is so apparent…..except for the naming schemes.

  • Anonymous

    Nexus w/o a doubt.  I’m finally going to experience the phone Google had in mind.  Not the phone Google had in mind and VZW put their grubby hands on to deflower.

  • hatethanet

    The non-removable battery looks like a deal-breaker for an LTE phone, imo:
    “In a streaming video battery test, the Droid Razr had mixed results.Using the same test I use for all smartphones — a continuous streaming video using the phone’s data connection — the Droid Razr lasted just more than three hours.In the same test, the Samsung Galaxy S II from AT&T lasted twice as long, topping six hours. The iPhone 4S, also on AT&T, lasted four hours and 19 minutes.” http://www.usatoday.com/tech/products/story/2011-11-07/mark-smith-motorola-droid-razr-review/51112622/1

  • The Nexus for me most likely. I’ve been really happy with my Nexus S so for that reason alone it gets the edge over the others. When it comes time i will try them all out and keep an opened mind but i might be to impatient to wait for ICS.

  • dblj

    What’s with the rumors that the Nexus will only be available over the web? Does this mean I can’t get hands on time with it before I make a decision?

  • Sporttster

    Nexus is running away with it hands down not even close! And I picked the Rezound….feel rather stupid….lol

    • joejoe509

      No. Don’t feel stupid. All three phones are amazing. This poll is far from perfect. Nexus fans are very avid. They tend to read these sites every single day. It’s no wonder we’ve seen such a turnout from Nexus peeps. Besides… personally the Rezound is second only to the Nexus and not by much.

    Goodbye ridiculous custom skins that most never wanted in the first place, uninstallable bloatware that constantly drains your battery, and empty promises of updates that never come and when they do come they are pulled because they don’t want to cooperate with the custom skins.

    I have nothing but love for Android and all Android devices.  Without a doubt, I would still rather have a skinned Android phone rather than a iPhone.  But from now on, stock Google devices only for me.  Hopefully, Verizon won’t screw this one up.  

    Here’s to not seeing VZ Navigator and Let’s Golf 2 on my phone… 

  • G-Nex,if it ever gets released.

  • htc_rapes

    NEVER AGAIN HTC! after the thunderbolt, it should of been called the Eris 2 

  • SpikedRed

    WOW, over 10,000 votes in under 12 hours?  That’s just badass….

  • IntlGrizzly

    That picture of the Nexus looks horrible. It’s not all shiny like the other two. 

  • John Gaspardo

    it depends on how it looks in person if the razr looks good and has some custom roms i might go with it just because of good build quality but im leaning toward galaxy nexus with pure vanilla android and android that is optimized for that device

  • I hope this is a sign to the manufactures that like to ruin the performance of  their phones by putting their overlays on them that nobody wants.

  • Anonymous

    im surprised not as many people voted for the razr (i voted for the nexus :P)

  • Nate Davidson

    Maybe after my next contract goes up, I’ll wait for a nexus… But so far, nothing has really impressed me to leave a DX2.

    • You’re in denial.

    • Flip74k

      Can’t stand my x2. To many random reboots and freeze ups. And its completely stock. Jumping ship to the nexus the 1st day its released!

  • Abigail Savage

    I just saw the RAZR in a Verizon store and I tell you, that screen is no good. Very pixelated with that pentile matrix. I know it doesn’t bother everybody but when I look at a pentile screen I can see every pixel and it drives me crazy. Combine that with a mediocre camera (see the Engadget review), and the RAZR loses my vote. The Nexus just seems way too big, and I’m concerned about early-adopting a new OS that may still be buggy. So I’m gonna go with with the Rezound. A dark horse, I know. But it’ll get ICS when it’s good and ready, and already sports many of the features ICS “introduces,” so I feel pretty good about the decision.

    • DJstinkDIK

      I was just looking at the razr. The display looked alot better than the bionic. Everyone is different but I think you might be exaggerating a lil bit.

  • Raymund1

    Seemed more appropriate here – So disappointed, no sd slot is a deal breaker for me :(, rezound it reluctantly is… I hate htc battery life and video quality, I have 29 gigs of music on my sd card because music is important to me (music producer/engineer, I know it seems like overkill but It really isn’t) and 5 gigs. of Apps filled on my x, plus I love to take videos and 1080p videos take up a lot of room, cloud storage is not an option because I travel a lot and coverage in between cities is extremely spotty and that’s when I need it almost the most plus google music offers no audio options and I use poweramp for music, so I’m really disappointed that they didn’t include an sd slot, rezound looks great but has big drawbacks but an hd screen is too hard to pass, guess horrible battery life and a laggy processor are in my future, wish the razr had an hd screen… But it’s all good I’m blessed to have the option to buy one of these phones so that’s the last of my complaining, just had to get it out haha, enjoy whatever phone works for you android friends, especially those getting the gn ha

    • babadush

      How often do you take out your sd card?

      • Raymund1

        Well I usually switch my 32 with my 16 when I know I’ll take a lot of videos, usually on the weekends so doing it a few times a week isn’t much but it still happens, if only it had 64 gig like the iPhone, but that’ll come eventually

  • Anonymous

    Played with a Razr in a BJ’s earlier today, was a display model but it was super responsive and the display looked great. The thinness was surprising, couldn’t make out the weight of the thing due to the cord constantly trying to pull it back into the little display cradle-thing.
    The rezound appeals to the side of me that’s a sucker for free crap, especially headphones since I manage to somehow ruin a set every other month. I’m sure battery life will be abysmal between that resolution, the lte, and the smallest battery of the three and yet…I’m not as put off
    I dunno this is gonna be close, guess I’ll just pickup whichever I can find for cheapest at a third party retailer soonest.

    Who wants to bet the RAZR has crappy camera performance?  I swear Motorola needs to go to Kodak school.  If I was buying at this time it would be the Nexus though the Rezound would be a great second choice.  Finally something made with audio in mind.

  • Always wanted a nexus device we finally get one on verizon.  Wish I had an upgrade though god that price is steep but its what I want!

  • STiK

    None of these phones are worthy of an upgrade.

  • djembeman

    Are those pictures to scale? Why does the Galaxy Nexus look so small compared to the RAZR? Also, Motorola has always been good to me. LG phones have sucked and I haven’t liked any of the Samsung phones I’ve tried. Verizon let me do an early upgrade to the Bionic because my original got bricked from a Gingerbread update and the replacement updated successfully but after an hour of use had the 4 Android buttons become unresponsive. I wore out my Originals BAL Droid’s headphone jack and had to get a warranty replacement and it’s been great. I could still be using my Droid 1 but wanted 4G. It will take some serious convincing for me to buy anything other than Motorola again!!!!

    • djembeman

      My original Revolution got bricked and the replacement too.

  • weapon x

    OG DROID running Liquid 3.1 with ICS theme. Still hanging in there. I’ve been waiting a long time for something worthy of taking this bad mofo’s place. I love the idea of having a phone with pure Google but I sincerely believe that the Razr is a better built device. I think it will last longer in the long run. Once I root it, I can uninstall all the junk and enjoy pure ICS. then I can have the best of both worlds. NFC is not that widespread yet here, so I can wait two years

  • Galaxy Nexus all the way!  Keep those soft buttons away from me, it’s all on-screen now baby.

  • what’s funny about the razr…

    -it has that kevlar covering or whatever.  so i asked if it still needs a case.  “yes, it does.”  ok?

    -it has gorilla glass… “yeah, get a screen protector”  i had a droid x AND a bionic.  i have taken my car keys, my house keys, knives, etc to the screen and have not been able to scratch them.

    yet, every screen protector i get gets worn out in a month or so.

    sorry, i’m not giving you extra commissions, buddy.

    • joejoe509

      True, it’s mostly for marketing. But there’s little doubt that the RAZR is built well. Given the slim form, I’m sure many people would have been worried about flexing and/or quality issues. They’ve generated enough buzz around the build quality that no one has much of a legitimate reason to worry. That said… no that doesn’t make the other two phones crappy by comparison. Gorilla Glass or not, most phones hold up pretty well considering the abuse they take.

  • Hfd1113

    Remember what happened to the first nexus? Google gave it all of the love..the latest OS etc. and my OG still kicked it’s butt. history has a way of repeating. Go Razr!

  • I went and looked at the droid razr today.

    so, it’s a thin 1.2ghz 1gb ram version of the bionic?

  • I doubt I will get any phone that isn’t a nexus from now on. The new features usually flag shipped on them with the fact that they are the pure vanilla android OSs.

  • Where is the option for iPhone 4s?

  • Anonymous

    I know now that I don’t want the RAZR. I like HTC built phones like the Nexus One and Droid Incredible, which were near the bleeding edge when they came out(a bit midrange now). Sammy makes good stuff, but I hold final judgement ’til I see the G’Nex and Rezound next to each other and enough early adopters to weedle out all the pros and cons between the two. They both have parts inside that are about a year old now along with some new tech. I may even wait for the 28nm foundry processors as that would mark a big turning point in mobile processors with win sauce dribbled on top and huge battery gains.

  • Anonymous

    i like all three, but the nexus being a nexus isnt enough to make me ever buy another Samsung phone…HTC i like their style, and the innards, unfortunately i hate sense, and HTC makes plastic junk…i like moto’s build quality, and their partnership with Google(read getting bought by) will help them get their updates in a timely fashion, much like the nexus being run by google

    • John Gaspardo

      hell yeah a moto nexus device would be the altimate phone their build quality with google software integration the ultimate combo indeed. I just wish they would start using better quality screens they are just okay in my opinion i want amoled plus or something better whatever is next 

  • Aries1816

    Who are these 241 people that said none of the above!!!!????!!!! They are the five percent!

  • Ajharman53

    I like the Rezound, honestly. I mean it’s $300, and you get a pair of Beats that are $150, so I think its a win-win. I love the colors of it. The Razr is cool, but I think that with Blur it’ll slow it down. The Nexus, I really love it, but I love having an SD card that I can remove.
    I’m split equally from each of them, and I want bits of all of them. I’m still rocking my OG running Bugless 2.3.7, so I don’t see anything worthy of an upgrade.
    I’m also looking into a Xoom or Thrive, so who knows what I’ll get.
    Maybe I’ll get an iPhone 5 😉 (Kidding, I’m never going to own an Apple product. EVER!)

      Meh. Prime doesn’t really roll of the tongue. 

  • Mule0331

    I’ve already preordered the Razr. Every Moto phone I’ve owed has been bulletproof. I know they hiccupped with the Bionic, but I still got to get one. As a current TBolt owner right now, I will never buy another HTC product again. Crappy battery life, updates are atrocious and buggy. I’ve never been a big fan of Samsung devices. Everybody I know that had one doesnt get the signal strength I do and call quality is not as good. Now that is for the people I know, so I’m not saying that there are people out there that dont have that issue. I was really salivating over the Nexus, but I realized that all I was salivating over was the software, which the other phones will get soon. I’ve never really minded bloat, it has never got in my way. If I dont want to use the bloat, I just dont open the apps. I think Moto has by far the best accessories. Granted people, this is just my honest opinion, and do realize that others’ may be different. I guess it all boils down to personal preference. I really don’t think either of the 3 clearly outshines the other in a overall sense. Get what you like, and quit knocking everybody elses decision. 

    • Dbarden31

      Well said! Question. When you pre order are YOU the first one to open the box? I really like that part. I hate when they open it and set it up for you in the store. Just me tho.

  • babadush

    Never had a nexus before. Nexus for me.

  • Dbarden31

    Im back and forth between the Razr and Nexus. Can’t make up my mind. I personallydont think the Razr will be as bad as people are making it out to be. No one really knows. I’m gettin more and more impatient with my OG Droid. Stresses me out. If the Nexus is online only I might have to go with the Razr. I have to feel what a device is like before I fork over $299.99. That is all.

    • Androidcentral gave it a really good review only con it listed was non removable battery and it being a little bigger meaning width of the screen…but thats pretty good

      • Dbarden31

        Yeah well in my personal opinion idc if the batter is removable as long as it has good battery life. I won’t be using 4G unless I travel because we don’t have it here yet. So that might help me out too. I like the size of it though. I use my phone for everything. Don’t have a tablet or lap top. So the size is fine w/me. I was looking at the otterbox defender series for the Razr last night. I’m gettin excited!

    If you REEEEAAALLY want an HTC phone, forget the clunky Rezound. This is the phone to get: http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-19736_7-57319780-251/leaked-htc-edge-could-be-worlds-first-quad-core-phone/?tag=TOCmoreStories.0

  • Bear0013

    I was reading on the pled siteand they weren’t impressed about the nexus screen…and read on another screen site they used the words fish net and a blueish tent on the white to describe the screen …BUT they were talking about the galaxy note which has the same screen as the galaxy nexus……….I personally want this phone and don’t think you have to be dev to want it or expect the best from a google phone……..any one got any other info on this he super amoled screen

    • I wouldn’t take anyone’s word unless it is your own….especially on web sites who knows what their other motives are or what….all that matters if you like it because everyone I’ve read said the nexus screen is amazing

  • If anyone that reads Droid-life actually buys the Rezound or RAZR they must be border line retarded.

    • I thought thus was funny

    • I don’t think I am retarded, just not as hardcore. Biggest issue I see is locked bootloader, but for what I use the phone for, not a big deal. The Nexus has a bigger screen and higher resolution but with out actually looking at I may not notice the difference. The Nexus has better camera specs in that it is a better chip with zero lag etc but I have a real camera for the important shots and the RAZR is going to be good enough for quick snapshots. Now the the RAZR as a larger battery capacity  (I have never once had to replace one of my batteries in my previous phones). The materials used seem like they will hold up better to my everyday life. Free Motocast app which I can see myself using. I also read that now through end of year you get Madden football free on the RAZR. So for me the RAZR makes better sense but I am not retarded.

      • Anonymous

        may not notice the resolution difference between the razr and the gnex?  the moment you go to a webpage you’ll notice that your able to see 3 times more on a single screen over your razr, beyond that it is an LED screen, using less power and gives you deeper blacks… then when android 4.1 comes out, you’ll notice you got an update immediately on your gnex while your refreshing droid life every 2 hours to find details about its release on your razr even though the update was announced 3 months ago

        don’t forget, you’ll notice the difference when you open your app drawer and see 15 applications you not only don’t want but have no use whatsoever, and you’ll never be able to get rid of

        PS. the battery difference is 20mah… thats about 3% better.. and remember, you’ll be able to get an extended battery for the gnex, the razr doesn’t have a removable one so if your concerned about battery life, know once your battery starts to wear down after 6 months, you’ll never be able to replace it

        • Anonymous

          Uhh the Razr IS using an LED screen just so you know. And what kind of half-assed led-acid batteries have you been using that wear down after two months? I’ve got a feature phone laying around that still managed to go two days without charging a week before I stopped using it and i was using it for nearly a full 3 years prior.

          External power packs will be available for the Razr should you need one, and while it’ll definitely be clumsy and awkward it should be no more awkward than an extended battery on the Nexus, that design is heavily compromised by an extended battery in my opinion. The Razr with a power pack will just be kinda brick like, while the Nexus with an extended battry will look like a bubble with a big brick growing out of it.

          Your “last note” is irrelevant, see Nexus S ICS  SDK, it’s a bit buggy but it works for the most part. ICS can be easily transferred to the Razr(and the Rezound for that matter) with way more completeness than can be called a “port” by anyone who doesn’t have their head lodged up their own colon. Well except for the whole manufacturer skin issue.

    The things that bug me about the Nexus is if the phone signal strength isn’t as good or better than Motorolas, I don’t know if my eyes/mind can deal with looking at the led screen (led hdtvs and smartphone leds drive me crazy), no micro as card slot, and possibly crappy camera.

  • Derickmc84

    This is going to be a hard decision.. I love HTC phones and I love that the rezound has a faster CPU than any of them.. But, Galaxy Nexus has ICS!!!!! I’m torn, and I probably will be until the day I purchase either the rezound or the GN..

    • My friend it doesn’t matter whatever the rezound is going to run the nexus will run it better and smoother….already reports of the rezound lagging and battery shit battery life and it being a tank is enough for me to stay away…

    The RAZR will be the top seller out of the three simply based on the marketing dollars Verizon is putting behind it. I saw the commercial for it multiple times during the UFC fights on Spike TV and the NFL games on FOX this weekend.

    I want a Galaxy Note!

  • Anonymous

    Honestly, I’m really happy with my Bionic. I got 14 hours of usage on my extended life battery yesterday with heavy usage.  Granted, it has some bugs; but now-a-days, which devices don’t have a bug or two?  I alleviated most of those bugs by installing the leaked OTA’s– runs like a champ now. I have a removable 32gb sd card, interchangeable batteries, a screen that I can see in the bright sunlight, and Motorola hardware which, IMO, is the most solid feeling of any manufacturer. Call me crazy, but I’m really diggin’ the Bionic, and won’t be dropping it for one of the devices listed above.

    I bet even though the GNex is winning this poll, that the Droid RAZR outsells it. VZW really pushes the Droid line. I can’t remember the last time I saw an ad for a Nexus device from the other carriers. We haven’t even seen any leaked commercials for the GNex. Thats what matters most…..sales. Just my $0.02.

      Totally agree–I bet if this poll were on MSN or other non-tech site for the masses, RAZR would probably win 2:1 based on the name alone.

        And that’s why I don’t get my news about phones from MSN. Also the poll isn’t which would sell the best, it is what phone do you want.

  • Mr. English

    Waiting to put my hands on the Galaxy and the Rezound. I love the ppi and it will likely be the reason I use if I get another droid device over the iPhone. If they can match the screen quality, I’m thinking Galaxy because of the OS purity but that Rezound isn’t looking bad either. That is, until the week after they launch when the next cool phone gets announced.

  • Phaeacian

    I was almost certainly going with the Rezound… until I saw this post. Never had an HTC device (OG Droider here!), and the specs are killer. Plus, I thought people actually liked Sense???

    • What does not do it for me on the Rezound is that Adreno GPU. Snapdragon CPUs are great, but GPUs are a different story unless they would have gone with their new generation GPUs, but that is 6 months away.

      • Anonymous

        You do realize that the Adreno 220 outperforms the SGX540(which is in the Razr and G-Nex)?   See here -> http://www.anandtech.com/show/4243/dual-core-snapdragon-gpu-performance-1-5-ghz-msm8660-adreno-220-benchmarks/2

          Actually if you read your own comparison review…

          It doesn’t include a comparsion to a 1.2GHZ omap 4460 in the Nexus,  it shows a 1GZ omap 4430.  They have diff processes and GPU speeds, so it’s not a fair comparison

          • Anonymous

            It might not to a completely fair comparison, however, my assumption at this point is that the extra .2Ghz in the processor isn’t going to help the GPU enough to overcome the difference even with the more advanced CPU.

I would love to get the GN, but unfortunately I don’t have a money tree in the back yard, so I will not be getting any of the aforementioned phones

  • Matt Harper

    G-Nex FTW! I have the Bionic and decided that I couldn’t take the HORRIBLE batt life any longer and was gonna return it and just wait for the G-Nex. Then I realized that I had it for 32 days (returns only within 30 days). So now I may actually open another line just to buy the G-Nex!

  • tyler cole

    I’m just wonder what we will do after the Galaxy Nexus releases other than drool over it because that’s all that has been talked about for like 3 months.

  • As the votes have shown, the Galaxy Nexus wins this by a long shot. I’ve had an OG Droid since November of 2009 and I’ve been waiting for this beast to arrive. The only downsides for me have to be the GPU and the SD-Card, but I can live with Cloud Storage and a overclocked GPU for now. What has really tipped me over for the Nexus has to the the front of the phone. You can hardly tell where the screen begins or ends on this thing. With no branding of any kind and no captive buttons to see, the phone just looks slick and very futuristic. Enough to say that the screen takes the space of the entire phone. I love it and can’t wait for my upgrade.

  • Sirx

    And all the gadget nerds and starved droiders will look up and say “Give us the Nexus!”.

    And Verizon will whisper, “No.”

  • Prickee

    I was surely going with the rezound personally until I heard and saw the beautiful GNexus.  I don’t understand for the life of my why people complain about bloatware.  Ever phone I’ve ever had had bloatware but did that stop me?  Hellz no root, flash Roms and go.  I’m more about screen size, screen quality, processor speed, and memory internal/storage.  When you stack that up to these 3 phones it’s pretty clear they all got it.  So GNexus has no skin, no bloatware, so it’s my choice for now.

    I can’t wait to see what happens when people start voting with their wallets and buying only pure Google devices. Unless Verizon makes the Nexus internet only so people can’t see how much better it is in person. Isn’t that the DEFINITION of anti-competitive? 

    • I thinking that Verizon will not offer this in any of their stores. Online only which is really poor on their part. A sell is a sell. You still get a 2 year contract and you make money on that contract. Why would Verizon care whether the phone has it’s branding on it? The iPhone gets away with it, but Android phones can’t? That too me is BS. Money is money whether the phone has branding or not.

      • Rob Becker

        Wait isn’t Verizon “the most open wireless network”? </sarcasm>

    Battery life is the outstanding question on all these phones.  I really hope the Galaxy Nexus delivers but if the Razr signifantly beats the Nexus on battery, I will have to seriously consider it.  I’m really tired of having a phone that can’t make it through a day with moderate use on a single charge.

    If anyone is considering htc consider this Ive gone threw 5 phones htc eris epic fail, incredible okay phone, htc thunderbolt fail, OG droid great, droid x very good, my experience with htc is 1 take forever to get updates and are first to get denied for more than one or two android updates, 2nd htc has a bad habit of releasing phones with tons of bad bugs and thats a pain in the ass plus if you have any htc phone for more than a year it WILL FAIL you and fall apart its like there’s a ticking time bomb! (i.e. screen becomes unresponsive, freezes, apps not working,weird error signs) its a good phone if your only going to use it for 6 months. the only way to make a htc phone decent is to run a custom rom otherwise you will be miserable.It can be a pain to unlock boot-loaders and plain root on it. on the + they do have a good camera and good style. the rezound looks very good and beats is a plus and specs sound nice. HTC sounds good on paper but is terrible in reality.I think its because htc tries to pack so much in there software that its overloaded and fails in the long run. Go with the razar or galaxy

    I understand the need for the manufacturers to differentiate themselves with these skins, but until they find a way to do it that is less intrusive and resource intensive, and more appealing, I have trouble voting for anything that doesn’t run the stock OS.  Android is customizable enough to fit anyone’s taste, but I don’t want the manufacturers making those decisions for me.  Nexus for me.

  • Austin Coile

    I’m confused why the HTC Rezound is getting so much hate it has better stats, better build (assuming HTC sprinkled their majic dust on it), better screen, in my opinion the best OS. The only problem is the battery which will be upgraded to ICS in January, and the thickness but I’m sure HTC will make it feel nice like they always do with their phones.

    • Anonymous

      “Better stats” is questionable. It’s 1.5GHz dual core, but those cores are Qualcomm’s scorpion cores vs. the 1.2GHz Cortex A9 cores in both of the other two. In practice, those 1.5GHz dual core qualcomm chips benchmark about as well as a 1.0GHz cortex A9, so in practice, it’ll likely be slower.

      GPU is just flat out worse than the 300/384MHz SGX540 in the RAZR/G-Nex, respectively.

      Screen is also questionable(vs the G-Nex anyway), depending on whether you prefer SAMOLED or LCD. There’s plusses and minuses on both sides of that question.

  • Anonymous

    If I HAD to pick one of the three, it’d probably be G-Nex, with the Rezound coming in 2nd.  But honestly, unless ICS blows me away, I’m going to take a pass on all three.  I have several beefs with each device:

    G-Nex:  No HDMI out, no microSD slot, no Gorilla Glass, usual Samsung plasticky build and RF performance, weak GPU, battery life may be terrible due to 720p

    RAZR:  Ports up top, launching with GB, Blur, initial reviews claim it’s quite wide, fixed battery (this is the biggie) , “only” a 4.3″ qHD screen

    Rezound:  Only a 4.3″ screen, likely to have awful battery life, no HDMI out, launching with Blur, HTC hardware design and Sense are looking VERY dated by now, SVDO still uncomfirmed

    • Anonymous

      Interesting that you commented on the “weak GPU” for the Galaxy Nexus, despite the fact that both of the other two have *weaker* GPU’s.

      Also, I’d note that both the G-Nex and the Rezound support MHL, so there’s HDMI out.

      • Anonymous

        Actually, benchmarking results show the Adreno 220 beat out the sgx 540(which is in the Razr and G-Nex).  See here -> http://www.anandtech.com/show/4243/dual-core-snapdragon-gpu-performance-1-5-ghz-msm8660-adreno-220-benchmarks/2

        Let me reiterate:

        microHDMI is easily available, easy to plug in and works flawlessly on every Moto device I have owned. MHL adapters are few and far between, clunky/bulky, and require external power.  NO advantage going with MHL other than being able to pad the accessory manufacturers’ pockets a bit more.  When I say “no HDMI” I mean “No separate microHDMI port”.   Nearly every SoC out there now has HDMI output capabilties, I’m just criticizing the choice of interface.  MHL is a pointless, bastardized offshoot that I don’t care to support.  There’s a reason Moto has stuck to their vanilla HDMI guns. 

        #1 microHDMI cable plugs into TV & phone. Bingo.
        #2 MHL adapter goes into phone, a separate HDMI cable goes into MHL adapter and then the phone’s AC charger goes into the MHL adapter. Much too much crap to lug around in a travel bag for an impromptu presentation or quick fullscreen game. 

        RAZR’s GPU is sufficient for its screen resolution.   I think the Adreno 220 and the SGX540 both may suffer with 720p gaming but we’ll have to wait for production hardware and behcnmarks. 

    • Born

      FYI.There is no Blur on an HTC device HTCs UI is Sense.

    • Anonymous

      Yes there is definitely HDMI out on the G-Nex.  Look at the specs here.


      Especially “HDMI: Silicon Image MHD SiI9234 transmitter over MHL (same as Infuse 4G and GSII)”

      It uses an HDMI over MicroUSB chip. Also they are using a fortified
      glass and internal memory runs faster than removable… don’t debunk
      things until you got the facts.

  • The Droid Razr is just a bit shy of what Motorola should have offered, people are seeing these new phones with actual “HD” screens and may not see the DR 🙁

    That being said, It truly has me in a bind, between the 3 is quite possibly the best of the best being released all at the same time, and all being on the best network helps also, but if Sprint gets the Nexus again, I’ll more than likely be staying with, but by the time my Nexus S is outdated, the 4th Nexus will be out with 7 cores and capable of PS3++ graphics so here’s to conceding in the race for a while….

      I actually owned the Fascinate since last November and I can tell you that I was ready to completely write them off.

      Since then, I think they have comes to terms with their failures and create some of THE best hardware around (the fascinate was the best hardware at the time, just crappy software). Leave it with a completely unmolested Android OS, and sign my happy a$$ up…

        They may be getting a little bit better. But my friends that have the Charge are experiencing the same GPS and radio problems I had on the Fascinate. I don’t think it is just a software issues with Samsung, but a hardware one too.

  • I’ll be getting a Nexus to replace my low on memory but still steady OG Droid, but I’m not going to be like the idiots that spend days in line waiting to be the first to get the device. Who the heck cares if you’re 1st? I’ll patiently wait 3 weeks after the release date for the price to go down at my local Frys and make my purchase there. No lines, no waiting, and the money I saved by waiting can go toward accessories. 🙂

      Gnex has a hd Pentile screen. The RAZR has the super amoled screen. Is that one reason? Lol

      • Anonymous

        Actually, G-Nex is super amoled. Super Amoled -IS- pentile. The RAZR is “Super Amoled Advanced”, with the “advanced” part having an unknown meaning.

      • We’re not sure if the RAZR is Pentile or not. It’s not SAMOLED+, it’s SAMOLED Advanced. We don’t know what the Advanced means. It could just be pentile, or not. Engadget’s review mentions a green tint to the screen, which would suggest Pentile.

        Plus, at higher pixel density, I don’t think Pentile would be as big a problem.
        Also, notice people didn’t complain about pentile nearly as much on the Galaxy S1. It’s just Moto pentile that seems to cause a problem.

    I was really looking forward to the Nexus on Verizon, but I’m a bit disappointed in the camera. I like the specs on the Rezound, and the Beats Audio is a plus for me, but it doesn’t have ICS. However, my upgrade isn’t until the end of Dec., so I have to wait a bit anyway… if HTC/Verizon is being slow about getting the ICS update out then I may just go with the Nexus.

    Nexus, but I’m pretty sure (just a hunch) that in 3 months Moto will unveil a refreshed RAZR with no buttons, and I’ll probably go for that.

  • The Rezound and Nexus beat out the RAZR quite easily, but I actually am still debating between the Rezound and the Nexus. As much as I want to get the Nexus, it’s got a pentile screen. The Rezound may have a more standard Super LCD, but it’s not pentile and has a higher DPI. It also has removable storage and faster processor. Once the phone is rooted and sheds the excess bloatware, I’m sure it will perform fantastically, not that it won’t right out of the box either. You could argue that the Nexus will always have the latest and greatest software from Google, and that’s true and a great selling point. I however don’t really care about NFC. I don’t know anyone who knows what it is and has a phone that’s capable of it, and I don’t live anywhere near any cities that I could use Google Wallet in. So in my book, the Rezound wins, but none of them are living up to what they should be.

    • Anonymous

      “and faster processor”

      just to let you know, that’s false. It has a *higher clockrate* processor, but it’s using an old architecture that isn’t as fast as the A9 cores in the RAZR/GNEX

      • Okay, so it has an older processor. While are on the subject, the GPU in the Galaxy Nexus is the same as it was in the Nexus S. It isn’t a bad GPU by any means, certainly better than the one that is in the Thunderbolt, which is supposedly what is also inside the Rezound. If that’s the case then the Nexus wins on that front. Knowing me I want a rezound, but will probably end up on the Galaxy Nexus anyway.

        • Anonymous

          uh no…the Rezound is using an S3 which means adreno 220…the Thunderbolt uses an S2 which means adreno 205. There’s quite a big difference. And if the Razr is running an omap4430 and the Nexus is running 4460 then indeed the Nexus’s only advantage is a somewhat higher GPU clock speed, according to the xda dev forums it’s 384 vs 304…though it’s got 4 times the amount of pixels to push on tat extra 80mhz so I’m not seeing a big advantage for the Nexus in that regard

          • So what has the best GPU Speed of the 3? From what you’ve told me so far the Nexus has a better GPU than the RAZR, but does the Rezound have a better GPU than the Nexus?

          • Anonymous

            Well if you mean clock speed, the S3’s gpu is running at 333mhz *according to wikipedia*
            I don’t know who’s got the best GPU, apparently adreno 220 gets better scores than Power VR SGX 540, when they’re both running at usual clock speeds and resolutions. Cept the Nexus’s is a little faster than some other SGX 540’s, though I think the Optimus 3D has a 4430 with the GPU overclocked also.

            Really I don’t know which has the best GPU, this is just stuff I’ve pulled from forums and wikipedia entries, I’m no programmer or engineer so I’ve got a very limited grasp of what any of it means. I do know there’s more to it than that though.

            I remember a video on youtube from some guy’s channel discussing how much more powerful the GPU in the Ipad2 was than the Geforce in the Tegra II, but the next week he reviewed a game on a Tegra II tablet that was also available for the ipad2, cept it looked better on the Tegra II because it was optimized for it. So uhh yeah, food for thought.

      The Rezound has the best specs of any of these phones(except for the battery) and will be upgraded to ICS in January.

        With the Nexus Bootloader unlocked and the recent development of the Galaxy SII overclocked to 1.8Ghz I would speculate we may see the Nexus with a kernel clocked somewhere in the neighborhood a few weeks after launch. If you buy a phone for some crap marketed by Dr. Dre that can be accomplished by any DSPManager and colored buttons, than your decision to buy a device is a lot different than most people on this forum as is indicated by the poll results.  But to each their own.

        It doesn’t have better specs, it’s CPU is actually worse than the Nexus’. Ghz doesn’t mean nearly as much having a more advanced chip. Not to mention the Nexus’ is underclocked to 1.2, meaning we’ll OC it to 1.5 on day one.

        Beats audio is software, nothing else.

        We’ll see about the ICS update in January, I highly doubt it considering their past updating patterns.

    That’s a tough choice for me to make ever since the the G-nex was announced to have a 1.2ghz processor instead of the originally rumored 1.5ghz. I still think the G-nex is the way to.go but it makes the Rezound a bit more tempting.

      I am going to assume you’ll notice the .3 GHz more in the battery life than performance, but I guess benchmarks will give us a better indication of that.

    • 1.5 on a Qualcomm is the equivalent of a 1.2 on an OMAP.

    hmm. Razer:Cute blonde that everyone wants. Hot body and tons of money. Rezound: cute brunnette who has alot going for her except she refuses to change her style. Or Nexus: Cute Brown head that will do whatever i want, whenever i want….

      More like the Razor: A hot blonde that everyone wants to Fck but once you do you regret it because she is a total idiot and brain freezes up and restarts every few hours.

      Rezound:  Brunette who is super hot and everyone wants to Fck but once you do you realize you have to feed her every 4 hours and she refuses to update her style.

      Galaxy Nexus:  The super hot girl of your dreams that will do anything you want, anywhere you want.

        This is completely unsupported, but maybe someone out there can help me, but I was talking with a friend this weekend, and he said since his T-Bolt has been getting updates to GB, he has seen his battery life go up from 4 hours to 24 hours.  Anyone else getting the same results?  I’m commenting on this b/c I don’t think any one of these phones are going to get the battery life we are used to see from our devices. Slamming HTC Rezound even before results are out b/c of the T-Bolt battery performance issues is premature at this point.

        • jason6g

          Oh the t-bolt…. every month and a a side of my screen becomes un responsive. During this time, i get to get a Fru, or CLNR, or refurbished tbolt from verizon. When i get the new device, i like to leave it stock for a day before re-rooting and romming away. Let me say, using it stock for a day makes me appreciate it modified that much more. The tbolt is great when it has decent software to make it worthwhile.

          what people bash HTC for, is that in stock form the past few phones have left plenty to desire. The inc2 has a horrible launcher in my mind, even allowing a tab to showcase the bloatware! The tbolt has horrendous battery life, doesnt connect to the network how it should, and when it does it has such low service. People are slamming the rezound as being a “so last year” device with nothing really awesome about it besides red keys.

          that being said, i like htc’s style and i like sense. if i get fed up with the tbolt anytime soon i would most likely hop on the nexus wagon as its nice having something just work and if you do want to mod it, there arent any major pain in the a** hoops to jump through.

            Fair enough, but I don’t see whats so great about the Razr. Only thing I see that isn’t “last year” is really the size when i look at the Razr specs. Nexus, I’ll give that credit, NFC,ICS, OMAP 4460 and slim design. Still has an older GPU. For me, I think the 4460 and the MSM8660 will perform equally with each other. Yes the MSM8660 has an older core, but its got a great GPU in it. With the way people use devices now adays, the GPU performance is crucial. As long as the cpu can keep up with the demand the GPU requires, the end user won’t have an issue with the MSM8660 being a little older. As for the OMAP4460, the SGX540 has been benchmarked slower that the Adreno 220, all be it in a slower OMAP design. I’ll be curious to see if the newer design allows the GPU to come up to speed with the Adreno 220 performance. So in the end, the only “last year” design point for the Rezound is its size, and NFC. I do wish it had a better screen, but I’ll never notice the difference. And as far as ICS, I don’t care, I’ll get it soon enough when one of the dev guys releases it.

            Better, 4.3 is more than enough. I personally don’t fall in the category of those who need the biggest screen on my phone in order to enjoy it. I have a TV for that.

          • Anonymous

            Nope, the OMAP 4430 is faster in both GPU and CPU performance than the MSM8x60 even at slower clock speeds.

            I have mixed feelings about this. I’ve got a tbolt too, and while the whole weird connection issues is definitely an issue from what I’ve seen in forums, I really never experience it on my CM7 device. Perhaps I’ll be singing a different tune once we get 4G (on the 17th woot), right now though its just awesome to be able to talk on the phone and use a data connection at the same time. 

            I’m actually taking this convenience into consideration when talking about upgrading. I really would like to get the Nexus for ICS + future updates but I will miss the specialized little dual radio feature the tbolt has.

            And yes, battery life is crazy bad. Fortunately I got an extra battery and an external charger so I’ve always got a second fully charged cell to pop in around 3-4 in the afternoon and then rock till its time to go back and recharge my batteries and the phones’.

      Nexus: Except allow you to use external SD cards or replace the battery, and has a pentile screen (not necessarily a bad thing by default, but not a good start, and a relatively slow CPU.

      Seriously, I was hoping for an SGS2 with LTE, and we get this instead? So sad. At least the Rezound has the hardware to match… I am sure it will be rootable soon enough, then I’d consider it… until then, it’s “none of the above” for me.

      • The Nexus has a replaceable battery.  And for frak’s sake, is 32GB of internal memory not enough?

          Maybe not to some people, no.

          • J Dub

            With services like Dropbox and Google Music users should not need to store much on their phones. The 20,000 song cap on Google Music and 2 GB of free storage on Dropbox is more than enough. 32 GB of data room for offline movies and music is a lot. With movies at around 800 MB and full albums at around 80 MB you have say that that is a pretty good amount of offline storage. An 8 GB flash drive can hold about 100 albums. That would still leave 24 GB for other stuff. So you have 100 albums and 10 movies and still have plenty of room to spare and that is all locally stored. If you need more than that for offline storage that’s silly. I would say over 90% of the time I travel I have connection with VZW. So 10% of the time I need to run on phone storage only. I think that is fair enough. 

          • Anonymous

            And having an internal user-replaceable battery is way better than having removable storage. 32gb doesn’t sound like a whole lot, but is really is. And if you fill that up, you can always either uninstall apps you don’t need, delete files you don’t need, or just hook up the phone to your computer and back everything up, easy as that.

            But if you are away from a computer(like camping) for a few days, you’ll be glad you had those extra spare batteries for your Galaxy Nexus, ’cause with the RAZR, you’re up sh*t creek without a paddle.

          • Jason

            People are also pretty ridiculous with there music as well. Showing off the music collection is like showing off a new car or soomething. “look I have a 500gb of music! Even If I actually liked all this music and listened to it non stop for the rest of my life, I would still have not listened to all my music!” Like were supposed to go Ohhhhhhh! He is so awesome! People don’t really need all this storage space and not having an sd card isn’t that much of a pain. Most phones wouldn’t allow you have the memory of 32gb anyway. Yes you can have multiple SD cards but now your just a data hoarder.

          • TC Infantino

            One problem I see with assuming people can easily use cloud storage to suppliment local storage is that VZW is making people pay for tiered data usage.  For those of us lucky enough to be grandfathered in on the unlimited data, this is all well and good to use the cloud for extra, and for streaming music; but those who have limits they have to adhere to, well they probably want the data they use kept on their phone.  I haven’t even mentioned the possibility that you may be in a place that has poor signal and you are using your phone as a music player.  So yes, for some the 32GB internal storage is just fine, but for others…the option of adding in a larger memory card is a must have.

          • J Dub

            Do you really need that much offline storage? How many songs are you going to listen to back to back?

          • J Dub

            Very true, but how long of a subway ride is it that 32 GB of offline storage isn’t enough? 32 GB should be more than enough for videos and music for even a week of subway rides.

        • Anonymous

          I had heard it was non-replaceable… so that’s good news, then.

          As for the memory, 32GB is enough, but I am concerned with losing data. At least with a removable card, you can put it on a PC and pull off your data if the phone dies… with a built-in situation, there is no such option. I guess I am being a bit paranoid about device failure as well… I’ve never actually had an SD go bad on me…

          The other concerns are still valid… but I will admit this may make the Nexus a bit more desirable. Except that the price is still silly. The SGS2 Skyrocket (a better phone than this one, as in the above listed issues at least) is $100 cheaper if not more…

        “relatively slow CPU”

        In actuality the processor found in the Rezound is the Qualcomm MSM 8660 processor which is inferior to the under-clocked OMAP4460 processor in both MFLOPs, GPU Performance and core stepping.  Speed numbers don’t mean much.  Chip architecture is a better validation method for comparing performance.  Also, a GSII has already been overclocked to 1.8Ghz which I can assume that we will be seeing overclocked kernels for the Nexus phone within a few weeks of release.

            chip number wise this is correct but the SGX processors are the most mature and optimized for Android.  It will be close but I have a strange feeling even at a lower clock speed it may still perform better.  This thread here was an interesting read on the topic http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-nexus/429607-nexus-prime-v-htc-vigor-dummies.html posts 6-7-8.

            Did you gloss over the differences in clock speed in those benchmarks?  The OMAP4 on the Optimus 3D is only 6 FPS or less slower at a full 500 MHz slower clock speed, that doesn’t translate well for the Snapdragon clock for clock (and no you can’t count the VSYNC off scores without doing the same on the other processors).  The SGX540 is capable of over 90 million polygons/s vs the Adreno 220’s 88 million.

            Here’s a much better comparison of the various GPUs.  http://www.anandtech.com/show/4686/samsung-galaxy-s-2-international-review-the-best-redefined/17

          • Anonymous

            Ok, so the SGX540 can draw more polygons, but what I look for is real world examples, i.e. Egypt and the like. This is where the SGX540 in the LG gets outperformed by the Adreno 220. I should note that both are above 30 fps, which to the naked eye means both should appear the same. Since I’m not a GPU expert, I can’t state how well the SGX540 will do with higher frequencies and new processors. I think the end user would be more than satisfied with both.

        • Except the overclocked GSII you are thinking of is running a snapdragon proc.

            Really maybe I should get my facts straight I swore that that one had the Exynos processor but I Could be wrong.  My comment was more directed to the open nature of the platform which gives developers direct access to begin working on kernel modifications.

        You need to check up on your information because the Nexus DOES have a removable battery unlike the Droid RAZR. And the hell are you talking about? The Galaxy Nexus practically IS a SGS2 with LTE albeit a couple of specs. Sounds like you’re not happy with anything.

          The gs2 is better than the nexus. It has a better processor and a better amoled.

          As Angelface77 noted, it’s not the same. Check the specs more carefully… there are many corners that have been cut. I will admit the removable battery was a mistake on my part… the rest still stand. Plus, as I mentioned on another reply, the SGS2 is about $100 cheaper than the Nexus, even with these shortcuts.

      What a horrible analogy
      Brown head? Did you really forget you already typed Brunette 5 seconds before or do you not actually know what brunette means? Second, the Razr’s the one with the locked bootloader and the non removable battery so you would think that it would be the one that won’t change its style. 

      The Nexus fanboys are in double or triple the number of everyone else on this blog so obviously that’s the one everyone wants as well as the one that’ll let you do whatever you want…but those two qualities mixed together indicate a fling that’ll have you visiting the clinic. And no one in their right mind, or who’s ever been in a relationship, thinks a submissive woman is fun to be in a relationship with.

      Galaxy S2: Incredibly hot Asian model. She is petite and arrives without all the bloat of the US models. She adapts easily and works no matter where you take her as she is a global model. You never have to worry about unlocking her. She is incredibly loyal, respectful, and up to any task as long as you respect her.

          Mine as well, OG in great condition…I have to admit that I have only had this one for about 2 months because I dropped my original one too many times.  The first one was still in great condition though and it was running like a champ rooted and ROM’d, fast as I needed it to be and doing everything I needed it to do, including watching streaming movies.  The replacement is of course in great condition, rooted and ROM’d as well, and I feel comfortable using it until Motorola comes out with a handset that truely wows me.  The RAZR is close, but I prefer a physical keyboard, I won’t say that the non-removable battery is a deal breaker, but it is helping me hold off to see what the Droid4 will be.

        You need to do an SBF back to a stock OTA update. Then root and install a 2.2 ROM. The only thing you might miss is the copy and paste functions of GB. I have tried many GB ROM’s and none can really compare to the speed and stability of a 2.2 ROM. I recently SBF’d to stock, rooted, and installed Project Elite 4.2 which is OC’d to 1.1 ghz by default. Couldn’t be happier. Everything is super snappy even more so then when I ran PE 4.2 before. Using RSDLite and SBFing to a stock OTA update cleans the whole system up. Kinda like doing a fresh re-install of Windows on a PC. 

        • Jason

          What would be the easiet way to go back down to 2.2?

          • J Dub

            Backup, full wipe, install 2.2. ROM. Or if like me you want more out of your OG you need to flash a SBF file to really reset to stock. Re-root then install ROM Manager and flash through there.

    • OMG, my co worker and I are struggling holding on with the OG. My wife has the BIONIC and i’ve been such as hater since she got it. Just tapping my feet at VZW/Google/Samsung waiting on this Nexus!

    • Mine doesnt get half the text messages sent to me.  Apps just decide they dont want to work.  Seems like every morning I have to fire up the paddles and shock it just to keep its heart going for one more day. Everything in me is saying GNex and I am sure that will be the phone I get, but I am really trying to be smart about it and look at the other ones.  I don’t know if I will like the plastic of the GNex…the look of the Razr is good…the Rezound has a couple of things I like too.  Overall tho, its still the GNex.

        plastic – theres a video out of the gs2 being dropped from various heights and showing that it is darn durable. dont sell it short….

        also, i always wanted a solid phone, until i had something that was light. its nice being able to carry your phone around in gym shorts and not have it almost pull em off!

      • J Dub

        See my replay to Matt. Doing a full system wipe which means a SBF restore and starting from scratch as if you just got the phone makes a HUGE difference. I just did it after 1.75 years of flashing different ROMs. It makes one hell of a difference. I haven’t found a ROM as solid as Project Elite 4.2 yet. I have tried lots of 2.3 ROMs and they just don’t cut it. 

        I also run Launcher Pro+ with only 1 home screen. No widgets on that home screen just app shortcuts. Turn off all animated screen transitions and your phone is near instant between screens, apps, etc. 

        • Anonymous

          I agree in general however widgets make almost no difference in performance.  Also, use PE’s built in spare parts to make the transition animations much faster.  The animation speed really isn’t limited by the phone’s hardware, it’s just not the fastest animation by default.

      OG Droid here. It’s getting slow and cannot run Fruit Ninja well, but besides the random (like, umm, 3 times a day) force closes, it still is good. No scratches on screen. God I love Gorilla Glass, wish the Nexus had it.

      Ive got my OG droid still.. hanging in there by a thread but still functions like a BOSS .. ive dropped that phone so many times in so many different substances..its ridiculous..but the thing is a tank!

    Lets see how this ends up…*cough…Nexus…cough**

  • I just don’t know which one to get, they all have there flaws and perks.
    Razor, no removable battery and ports on the top of the phone. why? Blur, YUCK
    Nexus – no SD card. and Old graphics processor, ICS, YAY
    rezound – no hdmi……. drawing a blank….

      Razr has the same gpu as the Gnex at a lower clock speed (300 vs 384)

      • Anonymous

        Unconfirmed.  Oh and both are still faster than the Rezound’s GPU.

    Gotta have the Nexus!!!

    Nexus…didn’t even have to think about it.

  • I just played with a RAZR at my local Verizon store and I gotta say I was very impressed. It was super thin, great build quality, light, very fast, nice screen and the camera was quick at taking pics. Definitely shouldn’t be overlooked. I definitely am jealous I can’t get one.

  • Nate Myers

    Its between the razr and nexus right now.  I wont be able to decide until i hold and use each one.  Looks like my purchase will be sometime in December.

  • I’m sure Verizon will see this and delay the Galaxy Nexus until January.

      Dear Verizon, I have $300. Want it? Give me the Nexus.

        Dear Verizon, I don’t have $300. Drop the prices!

        • Anonymous


          wait 2 -3 months and I’ll be $150 to $200
          4 -6 months and it’ll be around $100
          8 -10 and it’ll be free

       Everyone vote for the Rezound!!

  • MFG

    Any self-respecting Droid-Life reader should pick the Nexus.

    • Meh, 4 hour battery life doesn’t appeal to me.

        If it really has 4 hour battery life it’ll be a dev only phone.  However I would hope 4 hours is a stress test number, not real world usage.

        are you referring to the gnex dev unit where the reviewer ran the cpu at 100% and brightness 100% along with all other hardware (BT/LTE/GPS on) and got 4 hours of battery life and that doesn’t appeal to you?  I don’t know a single phone that could get that great of battery life running 100% maxed.  That would mean 24 hours no issue in normal person use… but unfortunately you have to take interwebz comments with a grain of salt.. but I pray he is right

        • I’m referring to black_man_x stating he is getting 4 hours on the battery with moderate usage.

      Any self respecting DL reader should pick what makes them personally happy and STFU.

      • Thank you. I always look forward to seeing your comments.

        Hell yea dude, well said. Besides, this is “D” life, as in “DROID”.   Nexus forums belong in Android Life

      While I want a Nexus I think that comment is ridiculous.

    • Steve Warren

      Any self-respecting Droid-Life reader should pick the one that has an Android OS regardless of who makes it as long as they like the way its built and designed. and last time I checked all 3 of the phones listed above has android OS.

  • Matt Ryan

    I keep pretending that I’m still considering the Razr…but I voted for the Nexus..

  • Kevin Lovan

    I am going nowhere near HTC Sense or Moto Blur.

  • Anonymous

    There should be a “rank these options” poll–I’d pick the Rezound solidly over the RAZR as my second choice in a sans-Nexus world.

  • Nexus + Verizon + 4GLTE. We’ve all been waiting on this, and I’ll be damned if I let it pass me by!!!

  • John

    easiest poll ever 😉

  • Tabe

    Where have you been? Everybody is waiting on that Quad-core HTC now! =P

  • Derp

    They all appeal to different groups of users.  I think this will be a strong holiday season for big red

  • dshizzel

    First to vote RAZR – yessssss!

  • If they’re on Verizon, none of the above.
    Not stepping up to the huge prices VZ charges for plans.

      if you’re not on verizon you don’t have a phone. You have a toy for $10 less a month.

  • tbaybe

    need a “i dont know yet cause im indecisive” option 

  • I voted for the rezound, it didn’t do my vote. I want a refund.

    Razr baby!

  • Is this really a question?

      I know right? But I guess we all like different things. Plus it’ll leave a little more nexus units around for us to snag

  • Pubasnacks77

    Nexus all day

  • Guestuser

    No brainer. Galaxy Nexus FTW… if it is ever released…

  • Anonymous

    Leaning towards the SGN, although the Rezound has potential, especially when it gets ICS. Just wish it wasn’t so fat and had such a lousy battery.

  • ML

    That’s easy: Galaxy Nexus.
