Thursday Poll: Your Current Phone is?

Since another major phone has been released, I’d say it is time to ask the readers of this fabulous community what they are currently rockin’. In the last 2 months, we saw Verizon introduce 3 of the top Android phones ever made in the Rezound, RAZR and Galaxy Nexus. And since this also happened to be the time that millions of original DROID owners were coming due on their contracts, we can imagine that at least a few of these “Big 3” were purchased.

So, which is it?

What is your current phone?

    The exhibit is  called "Picasso to Koons: Artist as
    Jeweler." You probably will 
    recognize the names of
    barbour
    jacket
    many of the more than one hundred artists  represented at the barbour
    jackets
    show. Names like
    Georges Braque, Max Ernst,  Alexander
    Calder and Salvador Dali, Robert Rauschenberg and Louise Nevelson and barbour
    uk.

      One hundred thirty of the rings, necklaces,
    barbour
    ladies
    and 
    brooches are from the collection of art expert Diane Venet. She helped
    to set  up the exhibit.

      Ms. Venet 
    met French sculptor Bernar Venet about twenty-six years ago. A short
    time  later, he gave her a piece of quilted
    jackets
    silver 
    designed as a ring. The ring celebrated the fact that they would soon be  married. Ms. Venet said it was the first
    piece of barbour
    quilted jackets
    an 
    artist’s jewelry she had ever had.

      As time 
    passed, Bernar Venet exchanged pieces with mens barbour
    jacket
    artist friends
    who sometimes created jewelry.  Ms.
    Venet’s personal collection grew and grew, and she decided to exhibit it  with works of barbour
    mens
    the other artists.

      Holly 
    Hotchner is the director of the Museum   of Arts and Design. She  says the ladies barbour
    jackets
    museum 
    considers jewelry as one of the most important forms of art today. She
    notes  that a piece of jewelry
    kid’s barbour
    jacket
    is not  just a small version of a sculpture.

    Galaxy Nexus has been out for 13 days and look at how it is BUSTING ASS on all these so called android devices…Everyone got on the bandwagon of the Droid Razr GOOD LUCK WITH THAT. Galaxy Nexus WIPES IT WITH THE FLOOR

  • Dlunky

    Well I have an iphone and felt that should have been a choice. Also i doubt a just realesed phone over 40 percent of the people here have. O well.

  • Anonymous

    I have enjoyed all the best android devices this year of 2011. I had the Htc Evo 4f, Htc Evo 3d, Samsung Galaxy Skyrocket, and now the Samsung Google Galaxy Nexus. What more can any android lover ask for. Nothing beats the Galaxy Nexus…

    I currently have a Thunderbolt, but that will definitely be changing soon.

  • Went from an EnV touch to a Galaxy Nexus. Huge leap. 🙂 So happy to be center of attention right now. 😀 😀 😀 

  • i need to change my vote from razr to nexus as of today. razr was a great phone but i’m glad i got the nexus. can’t go wrong with either tho.

  • rob

    Wow…bought my og droid 2 years ago…my razr three days ago. Been coming to this site…rooting, roming, over clocking the whole time. Deleting my shortcut…this place has been had…..

    Shocked to see the Nexus quadruples the next competitor.   And I thought the Razr would be big because of Motorola’s commercial campaign and Razr name recognition.  But then again your average buyer (like my wife) would never come to this site.  

    Hope this shows Verizon the need to stop locking bootloaders.  

    • Alexander Garcia

      Only geeks like us come to this site to vote. Trust me, the RAZR, the Rezound, and the iPhone4(s) are much MUCH more appealing devices for the average consumer and the Verizon reps will be pushing either of these three devices on their customers over the G-Nex. Seen it happen several times at three different local Verizon stores.

  • Rachel

    Still rocking the Thunderbolt… I’m waiting to see what’s coming for 2012 before I upgrade again.

      The Galaxy Nexus 2

  • I thought this was Droid Life not Nexus life. Yeah I get it its a pure Android phone but this should’ve been on Verizon 6 months ago, and who knows if VZW will ever see another Nexus device when HTC, Motorola and LG have their teeth deep in Verizons flesh. Not to mention in 2 months another phone will come out making the Nexus look like crap. 

  • Ron Perlman’s Jaw

    These poll numbers are bull.  14,000+ unique voters?  Nope.

    • Why not? I’m sure Droid Life gets a lot more visitors than that; it’s a great site!

      • Ron Perlman’s Jaw

        Not denying that the site has street cred, it’s one of my go-to sites for info.  But when you can vote in the same poll multiple times, even from the same computer, the numbers are jacked.

            Go check out msnbc.com and try all of their polls, and then comment on you were able to vote more than once, and the results of “Is Lady Gaga hot?” is not correct

    I bought the Incredible the day it came out and many new devices came and went but none could convince me to give up the Incredible. Last week I finally picked up the Rezound and I love it.

  • ddrrroooiddd

    I would of picked up the nexus if samshlong didn’t make it..and this isn’t “nexus life” this is DROID life. Its a samshlong phone with a android operating system not a true DROID.

    • Jeremy Morrison

      Is their even a true DROID anymore? The DROID in DROID-LIFE comes from the software AnDROID. And the Galaxy Nexus, the only phone with AnDROID 4.0 ICS is the only pure AnDROID phone running it right now. Take your Motorolla crap and Blur somewhere more useful.

    My Droid X has been a great device. Learned a ton of things Android related with it. Even after a year it is still getting love from developers. I can overclock & change minfree values to compete with newer devices. But she will need to be replaced soon. Moto radios & hardware are great but I hate locked bootloaders. G-Nex next? Maybe. I’m in no rush to upgrade. The DX is still holding down…for now.

    I’m using the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch. I considered the Rezound and Galaxy Nexus but did not want to be limited to 4GB/mo on my data plan. The last smartphone I used was a an original Droid that I had through work (I hated the sliding keyboard, I’m a bar-phone fan)

    I dumped the POS thunderbolt the first day the nexus was released, still got 250 on ebay for it, cost of upgrade 50 bucks, winning

    Honestly I feel that the OG was the best android phone until the nexus, I had the X, it wasn’t bad had great battery life, but the Tbolt was and still is a POS

      Sold my iPhone4 on Craigslist for $260 and bought the Nexus on a 2year upgrade so I got $30 off the $299 price. Paid $9 for the Nexus. Winning hard!!!

    I’d like to see an entry where we can rate each phone for user satisfaction, to see which one people actually like the most.  We’d probably have to throw out the GNex results since people are probably still enamored by it’s “new phone” sheen.

  • Benjamin Mackie

    44%. Someone should send this to verizon. There is a reason you shouldnt have delayed the phone, look at how many people got the phone, and how much earlier you could have made a ton of money off the phone

  • I love seeing the OG still getting the love it deserves.

  • Scea0512

    I love the Galaxy Nexus but there are a few quirks I do not like , Position of the volume rocker switch ?? brain cramp there as each time I turn the phone on I am hitting the volume rocker??? Also the ringtones SUCK !! horrible selection and the speaker is less than thrilling , not very loud at all ,I also dont like the added step now to ass something to your home screen , cant just long press that only brings up wallpapers , have to go to apps , then select one for the home screen , other than this the phone is awesome , hopefully they correct some of these issues soon with an update

  • Wow… apparently Nexus is pretty much where it’s at. Funny that my old school DX is still #2!

  • Anonymous

    I’m surprised at the Thunderbolt number, but I have to say as an owner of the phone, the last update really made the phone so much better than before. In fact, I’m currently on the fence about replacing my TB since Nexus seems to have some bugs to work out first.

  • I got my Nexus Saturday night and then had my bachelor party that same night. I got wasted and must have dropped it and chipped it in two places. I’m totally bummed and felt totally crappy! Funny and sad story for everyone : ) Awesome phone btw!!!

  • Earleepa

    I paid for a nexus the day they went on sale but Verizon lacked the foresight to have enough in stock so that everybody that wanted one would get one so now I’m looking at maybe two or three more weeks of using a fascinate that I bought off of ebay when my og died so I wouldn’t have to use my upgrade till now. Next time Verizon, pull your head out of your rear end and have enough on hand so everybody that wants one gets one. If the oil companies ran their businesses like Verizon runs theirs I’d be walking to work 4 days out of 5 .

  • Rational Man

    I’m waiting to hear if there’s any shoes dropping regarding the Nexus. I was tempted with the Bionic and the Thunderbrick, glad I didn’t pull the trigger on those, so as soon as I get the all clear and the price drops a bit, I’ll be on there. 

    I JUST got into the whole rooting thing on my DInc, so it’s like a whole new toy for me to keep occupied with.

      I know you are trolling, but what exactly are you basing this on?  I know some are having problems, but I will bet if you poll most users, they are perfectly happy (me being one of them).  I have not problem if you want to feel the need to justify your purchase, but there is no reason to be a snot-nosed brat on every post.

      Go get the phone and try it for a week, or STFU about it.  Get a life, idiot.  It is people like you that make this site almost not worth reading, and makes others act in kind. 

      I happen to own a gnex, and have not owned any others, so I do not comment on the others.  I personally did not like the feel of the razr, so I did not buy.  Let people have their opinion and you can have yours.

  • Anonymous

    We all know that all these geeks wanted the nexus, that is why the % is higher. The razr is best.

    • Anonymous

      Did you vote for the Razr 600 times? Lol

    • mons

      The Razr is one of the ugliest phones I’ve seen in recent years.  Those huge bezels make me want to throw up.  As much as its thinness is a selling point – I hate the way it felt in my hand.  The rounded backs of the Rezound and Nexus are much more comfortable.

      • Wow, exaggerate much? It’s not like it has a gooey green mucus screen or anything…

        • mons

          I’m not exaggerating.  When I went to pick up my GN I also checked out the Razr and Rezound out of curiousity.  I was blown away by how wide the razr is – the bezels and that silver rim are huge.  I think my old DX was much better looking.

  • Sk102704

    I’m calling bull. I’ll agree that the Nexus is the best phone available now but no way has it outsold the next best competitor by over 4 to 1. I know taking a poll from a readers at a site like Droid_Life is going to be skewed to the general public but I gave a hard time believing that it was able to gain such a lead in what a week.

    Don’t get me wrong, this is in no way a knock on the Nexus. I have a Bionic, the most bitched about phone of 2011 and I would love a Galaxy Nexus, but I had an OG Droid that was just asking to be brought out into the field and shot. No way would it have made it until December and besides a few glitches, I am very happy with my Bionic. Getting all of the new phones in my hands is not an option and I am jealous of those who can, so its pretty much one phone every 12-18 months and I think for the most part peoples decisions on a new device is dependent on their needs and not what fanboys claim in these forums. So as I’m trying to get at is regardless how great the Galaxy Nexus is, it’s hard to believe that a site dominated by a fanboy community (Samsung, HTC, Moto) that one device can become an overwhelming favorite in just one week. This poll is about as legit as an Iranian student council vote.

    • What’s so hard to believe? It’s a desirable phone, it was on sale many places, making it even more attractive, and it had limited stock, giving bragging rights if you got one.

      • Sk102704

        Whats so hard to believe? Are you serious? That this phone has outsold every other Android model by over 5 to 1 now in 1 week. That’s whats hard to believe. Limited stock huh?

        • BigBox

          Only sold 5 to 1 to the readers of this site. Probably not the same in real life, but the GN is blowing up! I went to my local verizon store to play with it the day i came out and watched a few get sold. Went back the next morning to grab 2 for the wife and myself and 3 others were sold. Exchanged mine a few hours later (wouldn’t charge, call quality), and still another handful of people were buying the GN. Even the manager admitted the GN was selling better than the other 2. Was only in the store long enough to take care of my business… so yea, dont dismiss it.

          • Sk102704

            I’m not saying its not selling like hotcakes, I’m saying no way in one week has it sold 5 to 1 over any other Android model, even for people that visit this site. Clearly there are some people who are a little too proud of their new toy and have inflated the numbers with multiple votes.  As somoene commented here, he was able to vote 3 times for the same phone.

          • 41unique

            allot of the GNexus users are clearing the history (cookie etc…) and voting many times, so the poll is not correct! If you read more you will see that some has voted for the GNexus more than 5 times or more.

    • mons

      I can’t speak for anybody else, but I saved my upgrade for a long time to get a Nexus.  I was tired of my Eris so I picked up a used DX this past January or February to hold me over.  All the signs were pointing towards ICS coming out at the end of this year, and there were early rumors the accompanying Nexus would be on Verizon.  This makes me sound hipster – but I was waiting for the GN before it was announced.

  • Dcrb4

    While I maybe out of line,I think this poll is very much one sided. I paid retail for the Rezound and think  it got me the BEST phone that Verizon has to ofrfer on their network. Even though the continue to promote the Razr & Nexus, I believe the Rezound will end up TOP DOG when all said and done!just my ,02 cents.

    • I had planned on getting the Rezound…. still on my DInc from April 2010, which has been a really great phone. I love HTCs build quality and reliability. Even before Android, I had HTC winmo phones.

      BUT, I’ve given in to the Nexus and ICS hype! …not that I think the samsung build is very good, it’s likely not… I just really want a Nexus phone, updates from Google, and of course first on the block with ICS. I know Rezound and others will get ICS eventually, but will Sense still cover it up? I’ve actually loved Sense, but Android is finally refined enough to not need a skin. I’m ready for a pure experience, and it looks like many others are too. …if HTC made the Nexus device on vzw, without Sense and first to ICS, that’s what we’d be reading about.

    • Chris Clancy

      Rented a Rezound the day the holiday return policy went into effect…. got a gnex the day it dropped and while the Rezound is a nice device…. it is no nexus…. just isn’t….never will be… doesn’t mean it is a bad phone though.

  • ckeelers

    Yep. Original Droid owner here and I’m so glad I waited. It was a loooooooooooonng 2 years with several “You know, I think it’s time to upgr-.. wait… naaah only 6 more months to go! I can wait!” moments but f@#! yeah I’m so glad I did. Love this thing!

  • LinuxLover

    An iPhone because I couldn’t stand the wait until the Bionic appeared almost 9 months after it was introduced, and nothing like it was originally designed to be like, either. If I had to do it all over again, I’d still buy an iPhone. I’m completely happy!

    • ckeelers

      Ha, your name and choice of phone are… well just… oh the irony. 😉  But hey in all seriousness, despite my love for Android, iPhones are solid. Glad you’re content!

      • LinuxLover

        Yeah, I thought for sure I’d be sporting some Android goodness, but I was just fed up waiting. On the rebound, I bought the competition and haven’t looked back. One thing that’s actually nice about it is the closed nature of it. Think of it this way, Linux distros actually prefer you to get all of your software via the repos. That way, they can be tested and insure a clean system. The iPhone does the same thing, but takes away your choice. I have a feeling that Android isn’t as buttoned down as real Linux and isn’t a secure as it should be.

    • Tim242

      Do you really think this poll indicates sales???? Most phone buyers do not read phone blogs, much less this particular one. There are more nexus people, because it just came out. They are coming here looking for news of an update to fix its many issues.

  • If only i had the nexus. 

    • Tim242

      You’d be disappointed. It does not live up to.the hype. It has the worst battery life ever. Signal is not great. Camera is just barely ok. Screen isn’t the most responsive…especially in the browser. It is just ok. Not horrible, but not great either. My battery cover won’t even latch at the bottom now. I was changing batteries out, due to the awful battery life. That is what killed it for me. Samsung is not for me.

      • Anonymous

        Wow dude maybe you got a lemon. Battery life is decent especially for an LTE phone. With a mix of LTE and 3G I get about 12 hours.

        But outside of that, this is by far the fastest and smoothest phone ever. And just wait until devs make ROMs for this bad boy, sky’s the limit. I also find the screen SUPER responsive.

        Maybe you should swap and get a new one within your return period?

      • Yeah, same here. I love mine, my battery life isn’t any worse than my Droid OG, and the screen is beyond fantastic. I think you got a bad one or something.

      • dieringer scott

        I get 8 hours of moderate to heavy use on 4g and my screen is super responsive. Maybe you got a dud

  • Fbergman114

    D3 times 2. Crap phone with little support. Motorola seems to be intent on getting the latest phone out. With the Droid 4 just around the corner I don’t see them fixing all the issues this phone has. My last Motorola phone. I love android, but this phone might drive me from the platform all together.

    Wow, wtf.. did everyone here save up their upgrades for the Gnex?  I feel left out 🙁

    • QtDL

      Last week when I called VZW cust service about an upgrade question, the chick was like “Awwww you got the Nexus? Do you love it?” me: “of course, it’s awesome” then she said “I got the Bionic (with a sad voice) :(” And yes I did save my upgrade for the GNex. I was eligible the beginning of September – heard about the Bionic, waited, heard about the Razr, waited, heard about the GNex (about a day later), Yup that’s what I’m getting. Easy decision for me.

      • the way phones are being cranked out,  soon as you finally decide on one and get it here comes something better. i think it’s stupid how you can’t upgrade sooner. it’s not like you’re jumping to another carrier.

  • so will all the moto haters skip the next signature google phone that’s sure to be built by google owned motorola mobility?

    • YourFriend

      I’m sure they’ll come up with some inane excuse like they always do.

    • I’d love nothing more to see another unlocked Blur-less Moto…especially if they kept up with the screen quality of the RAZR. Every other Moto phone’s display has been very lackluster to be modest. My Nexus is the first Non-Moto phone I’ve owned in a decade only because everything since the original Droid has been such a disappointment (to me because I demand a device w/ freedom and screen quality, but I understand this is subjective).

    • QtDL

      I’m no Moto hater and they do make good phones. I just don’t like the skins, bloatware, restriction, and long updates (not bug fixes, but 6 months before they get ICS on their phones? seriously?). I had the OG Droid and it didn’t have any of that stuff which I liked.

      • i had the OG DROID too before i bought the razr. the last 3 months of which it had a severely  cracked screen and still worked like a charm.

        • QtDL

          I know right. I dropped my OG so many times and never a scratch or crack. It did have a soft case on it but it still took some serious tumbles and never stopped working. He is in retirement now – might have to give him a new job, like alarm clock as others have used theirs for. 🙂

          • i never had the screen replaced. $100 deductible, might as well buy a new phone! lol

    • Google bought Android 2 years before the first iPhone was released. Android wouldn’t be what it is today if it wasn’t for the iPhone and it’s success, but you’re definitely wrong there.

    • Doan

      Leader? Last time I checked, Android was leading in sales vs the iPhone.  By the millions.

      • yeah when you add up all android phones to one iphone. lol there’s not one android phone that can compete in sales of the iphone. with that said, i’m happy with my razr. i don’t get all into the technical details of rooting, unlocking and bootloaders and  so on. hell, i’m hardly on my phone! lol

        • Tim242

          One Android phone won’t sell more than iPhone, because of how many choices there are. It’s not because they aren’t good enough. It’s like if Pepsi only comes in blue cans, but coke comes in every color imaginable. There couldn’t be any one color coke to sell more than blue Pepsi. Your argument is very flawed. By the way, there are many iphones, not just one. Glad you love your Razr. I’m about to.return my Nexus, for the Razr. It is much nicer.

    • Matthew Rosidivito

      History begs to differ. I remember running Android on my old HTC Tytn II (Windows Mobile Phone) back in 2008, less than a year after the iPhone was released. When you consider development time, I think both projects really started around the same time.

         I kind of turned away from this site too. Used to read it more often but not so much now. These blogs aren’t just made up of editors and articles but also the readers. The comments of the latter is what put me off (easier to just not go to the site than not read the comments). I get enough from iPhone fans. I don’t need Nexus users snubbing their noses at me too.

          Lucky for you it won’t be long until the hype starts on the next latest and greatest droid phone. Then the nexus haters and nexus owners who hate their haters will unite to hate on the next group of new phone followers.

          *sigh*

          • A Droid phone will never equal a Nexus phone.  I would gladly take a 6 month old Nexus with stock Android and direct Google support than a brand new Droid flavor of the week that will never get updates.

          I agree that the comments on this site have been really terrible lately. I used to love DL for the comments and how nice and helpful the community was. But then again that was when everyone had the same phone and everyone was focused on helping each other and uniting against the iPhone instead of waging flame wars against one another. Nowadays it’s just sad really, too many people who think they have something to prove.

I guess any post about Honeycomb should have been omitted up until the announcement of the Droid Xyboard since we didn’t know it would be on a Droid device until then. Google TV posts should be gone. Any post about the Galaxy line should be gone. The Galaxy SII was reviewed on Droid-Life. How dare Kellex post that here, right?

        I come here for the latest and greatest Android News. Fortunately for me I am on Verizon so I get all the Verizon Android News as well as the big non-Verizon Android news. As long as Kellex and his team does that I will be here reading, even if I have to quit reading comments; which is sad because they used to add so much useful content to the site.

  • Anonymous

    I’m actually pleasantly surprised to see so many with the X and Thunderbolt still.  I guess they came right after us Original Droid users so they may still be waiting on their upgrades. 

    I’m definitely surprised the Nexus is so far ahead and the Razr and Rezound.  I think both are good devices, especially the Rezound, it’s realistically the best overall phone minus not having ICS.

    • The Rezound has the best screen quality overall, but just because it has a 1.5 ghz processor doesn’t make it faster than a 1.2 ghz processor of a different architecture. From what I understand the TI OMAP 4 and Exynos chips both beat the Snapdragon in performance.

      • Anonymous

        Don’t worry, I have the Nexus and I love it.  As I said the Rezound is better overall, camera, screen despite being smaller, cpu performs similar, gpu is better.  I wouldn’t buy it over the Nexus though.

        • I was worried about the GPU on the Nexus but after playing Shadowgun and GTA 3 I’m pleasantly surprised that there’s nothing to worry about. I haven’t seen the Rezound’s camera yet but I also didn’t have high hopes for the Nexus’s which was another pleasant surprise.

  • Anonymous

    Funny, I asked in my office today 7 people what they thought of the galaxy nexus and not one had even heard of it. In fact, none had heard of Droid-life either. You see, in the real world (non geek) people dont give a crap about unlocked bootloaders and Ics.  I know you all believe you are some HUGE community, but in the scheme of things, your 3000 phones is nothing and if the poll were taken in the general public, the outcome would be quite different. So go back to doing whatever it is you do with your gnex. Some sound so infatuated I honestly believe they sleep with their phones

    • This is an ENTHUSIAST blog. WE care about unlocked bootloaders and ICS. I’m so sorry that people’s contentment with their choice of phone brings you down. You may want to seek therapy.

    Is anyone else just bored with everything Gnex lately?  I realize it’s the first phone with ICS and it’s entirely unlocked but is it all THAT great?  

    Personally I have not purchased the phone but played with it at 3 different Verizon stores and done speed test at all three and the Nexus was half of my Bamf Tbolt EVERY time.  

    Personally this phone is not enough to make me dive into another $300 contract and honestly not even sure if it was $100 could I commit to a two year contract to get this phone.  

    As will always be the case there will be better phones on the horizon but right now from my rooted Tbolt……The nexus is a step forward…..not the leap forward I want in a new phone.

    • MattCrouse0509

      Also it feels like droid-life.com has become galaxynexus-life.withasplashofotherandroidnews.com

      • Chill. It’s like this with every major new phone release. September was the month of the Bionic just like this is the month of the Nexus. It’s a big deal because it’s Verizon’s only hacker-friendly device in over 2 years so of course it’s going to get a lot of press on a VZW Android enthusiast blog.

    • Thunderbolt to nexus comparison and you think the thunderbolt is better hmmmm…..

      • MattCrouse0509

        Clearly you’re to ignorant to read my post….at NO point did i say that I thought my Tbolt was better but I simply stated that with it being rooted for me personally the Nexus is not for enough of a step forward for me to dole out $300 or even $650.

        My point is that all has been made of this phone and it suffers from many of the ill’s that other phones have and for me as someone who uses my phone as a hotspot ALL day the fact that consistently in my test the Nexus did not perform well with speed test AT ALL in a great 4g market is a problem.

        I am not saying that the Nexus is not a great phone and if I still had my original Incredible it would certainly be my choice but with my current phone and having spent a limited time with the Nexus…..it is not even remotely enough to make me feel like GOTTA HAVE IT!

  • Djenks24

    Wow, I didn’t realize how popular the Nexus was! I’m beginning to understand all the Nexus articles. That’s ok, i’m not giving up my razr until Moto makes a Nexus. I’ll have an ICS ROM soon and the Nexus will have nothing on me:)

    • Except speed due to Moto more than likely throwing Blur on top of it and Nexuses already being overclocked.

      • Unique

        I had the Razr and Nexus (plus the Rezound) side to side and did not see a
        difference in using it only when I did a Speed test that the Razr out did the
        Nexus. I thought the Razr Screen was brighter, the sound was loader and better and build
        was better. I took pictures with both at the same time and the Nexus was
        faster but was blurry. So had a hard choose, do I want ICS, NFC etc… or a phone
        that has a better antenna that was built better and still get ICS at a later
        date. I bought the Razr and I’m very happy with it.

      • Tim242

        Your ignorance shines. Blur is not what it used to be. The Droid Razr is the fastest phone I’ve ever used, including the Nexus I’m about to return.

        • So you’re saying Blur doesn’t use resources? It sounds like that’s what you’re implying. Otherwise you couldn’t possibly believe that a device with an inferior processor, running the same OS with a skin on top of it could possibly be faster. The Droid Razr would only be faster because it’s running Gingerbread, an OS  with way lower resource requirements. What do you think is going to happen when it gets ICS? Remain the same speed?

            If you’re unhappy with it, it’s as simple as returning it.

    • I bought it purely for the fact that it has a contending processor and a factory unlockable bootloader for all my hacking desires. ICS was a plus but I could’ve waited. I’ve been waiting 2 years, when I got my OG Droid, to see VZW release a phone w/ an unlockable bootloader from the factory.

Yet Tuesday when I went into the local Verizon store in Everett, WA they told me the Nexus wasn’t selling very well.  I think the people on this site are very different than your ordinary Joe.  95% of the people could care less about rooting phones or flashing ROMs.  I think the Nexus phone is geared to a small (but loyal) group of people.  If you did this same poll on CNN, Fox News or USA Today you’d get a very different answer.

      My local VZW store is in downtown Boston a few doors down from my office. On launch day there were about 10 people in line right at 9 am, myself included. When I left the store at 9:10 am after I got mine, there were about 25 people in the store getting their Nexus as well. I asked the resident Android nerd in the store how many they had in stock that day – about 220 or so (it’s a large store). They sold out by 5 pm. They got another shipment the next day though. 🙂

            I’m on my second one. ICS is ok, but not great. Gmail is worse. It no longer shows the pic preview in the email. It just shows a tiny thumbnail. The hardware it runs on is junk. I have no.reason to be jealous. I buy phones at retail, whenever I please. I thought I could stomach Samsung for ICS…but have changed my mind. I may get the Razr, which has great hardware, and will get ICS soon.

          • The hardware is junk? It has a better processor, camera, and screen than the RAZR.

            The Razr performs much faster. I’ve tested them side by side. The camera is awful on the Nexus. Every reviewer agrees. Screen? Hmmm, 1280×720 samoled vs 960×540 samoled plus. I’d call that fairly even.

          • I’ve seen many reviews of the Nexus and not a single one says anything less than a neutral comment. I’d say almost unanimously positive.I agree with you on the screens being on par with each other, though. However, I believe that the Nexus will beat the RAZR when it gets the ICS update in the performance department. The 4460 is better than the 4430 and when you add blur on top of it, it’ll just hurt it that much more…assuming moto sticks with blur in ICS.

          • Jamesw2

            nice try tool but rzar has samoled nor samoled +. the so called “advance” suffix motorola uses doesnt carry any meaning. its 540p samoled in rzar vs 720p samoled in gnex. yes both pentile. nexus has better camera, screen, processor, and gpu. do more research before trolling on a phone.

          battery life , cdma only is just horrible, few minutes of wifi gtalk video chat with my wife , she was on her new razr LTE and my GN battery again on wifi dropped over 20% , hers hardly at all .

          There are quite a few shortcomings that maybe i could deal with but battery life , i cannot . The ET4G that we have from a srpint trial has decent battery life , my orig Droid even overclocked never had this type of battery life . Hoping a few charging cycles or updates and it improves . I hate to see battery life when i go into an LTE area for Christmas day .

          I have tried cdma and wifi , both just browsing the web and facebook , twitter, battery sucks up.evrry few minutes, crazy . This cant last or normal folks wont be able to deal with this . Maybe i have a poor battery or bad phone?

          The streaks on the display like the white b/g while typing this, are they normal? It is like faint lines , perhaps a light blue . Havent seen such on the gs2 or Droid in the past or now on the same site.

        • I’ve read a lot on the alleged signal issues and when comparing dBm to phones sitting right next to it they had the exact same on 2 different blogs. Battery life isn’t great, but I get well over 30 hours (I’m not in an LTE area, though) with heavy use (playing 3d games, music, youtube, browsing) with an extended battery.

      When it’s the device of the year and the most hyped Android device ever paired with multiple delays and other drama then its going to get some attention. Its a great device just pick one up and you will see it is by far the best around. Believe me as I am an HTC fan that despises Samsung and Motorola so i was dead set on getting the Rezound up until October 18th when I saw ICS and what it brings to the table. I loved my Nexus One, but passed on the Nexus S as I hated Samsung hardware, but this phone shines. I now feel like I missed out on the Nexus S as I spent the year with the Droid X, Droid 2, 2 Droid Incredibles, and lastly the HTC TBolt and I have to say skinned phones have burned me out and I wont buy one again.

    I know it’s not a Nexus, but I’m really surprised with the lack of love to my current phone, the Rezound. It’s a great phone & once it gets ICS early next year I can’t think of a train to pick the Galaxy Nexus over it. The camera is awesome, beats is great, HD screen with no pin-tile.

    • I had the Rezound before I got the Nexus, and I kinda miss the camera and screen – but I am loving the Nexus’ overall experience.

      • Anonymous

        Isn’t the only experience right now just being the first to ICS? Not being a smart ass, just my observation. After ICS, the Rezound will then have the same experience but still have a better screen, Beats, and a better camera…. right?

        • Well, I like fortified glass on the Nexus. From what I read about the Rezound, if you drop the phone on the screen without a protector, it’s the end of your life — and I tend to drop it face first frequently. Plus, I am not one for HTC Sense. There were some things I liked, but overall it was quite annoying. I prefer a stock Android experience that
          doesn’t interfere with the usage of such apps as SwipePad. Also, I missed Swype. The Rezound’s camera is truly the only thing I’ll miss. The extra features were nifty, but I can deal with the Nexus’ camera. I took some photos this morning and was actually more impressed than I had been in my inital usage of the camera. Both phones are great. I intend on buying my mom a Rezound very soon so that she can upgrade from my old Droid X.

        • Anonymous

          Will you have the same experience though? The biggest choice of an android phone to me is the Dev community. Within one week of release, devs are popping up all over the place… or shall I say… coming back to one general device. After the Droid…it hasn’t felt the same. Glad to have the nexus. I “rented” a rezound for a month, which was a great solid device. I still take the nexus over it any day of the week.

        • lol wut

          couple things here… its going to be AGES before that thing gets ICS… look how long it took the thunderbolt to get a working version of gingerbread… and that is an easy upgrade over froyo not and totally revamped OS like ICS. second is the on screen keys will continue to evolve and all phones with softkeys with start to seem ANCIENT

          Nope, not the same experience. ICS on the Rezound will be the version of ICS that HTC and Verizon want you to have. It will be skinned with Sense and filled with bloatware. The Nexus will be vanilla – just pure Google Android.

        • Anonymous

          The experience won’t be the same because it will have Sense on it. For better or for worst, HTC will make unique changes to the user experience. And if the update is anything like their past Sense enhancements, it will be a bigger resource hog than ever.  

          • Anonymous

            Kind of sad huh? I actually like a lot that Sense has to offer. (Although I have never bought an HTC phone for myself.) HTC would do themselves a solid if they offered a “vanilla” theme on Sense and just kept it as an alternative option. I liked the ability to change themes on my wifes phone, thought that was cool. One for Home, one for Football sundays, one for the office, etc. Kind of nice.

      wish i was more into the gnex , battery life is crazy bad , soesker , camera , display rotation very slow, MTP file xfr is wretched , etc….

      Will either swap for Rezound mid jan or reactivate the droid again and hold out . Bought my wife the Razr and really like it overall over the GNex but no way could i get a device without a removeable battery . It has been a pleasant surprise though with the opposite to be said of the GNex . Let down , after trying the GS2, expected it ajd more from the GN , simply a let down…

      Keepg the GN only for updates and ICS a bit early is a mistake IMHO for a two year commitment to a lackluster device . If it already is questionable , how will it fair thru 2012 and 2013?

      Anyone who thinks the speaker is ok, play a youtube video then compare thru a Razr, Rezound, GS2….
      Also i prefer the razr and gs2 displays , they may not be HD but on a small phone , resolution isnt as important as contrast , colors….

      • Anonymous

        Give the extended battery a try, it is nearly the same size with cover as the stock and has been outlasting what I remember getting on my OG.  I currently am getting around 16-18 hrs of use out of it and I consider myself a pretty heavy user.

        The speaker is a disappointment, volume+ is a decent app that can help that a bit.

        I think the real draw to the gnex is the massive developer support this phone is receiving.  It will be convenient to get timely updates, but Im more excited about what the dev community will do with this phone.

        • Anonymous

          I’m ok w/o the latest updates, in fact i could use the ET4G “as is” for some time – until apps don’t support Gingerbread.

          I find GB much more convenient than ICS – for instance , hitting the menu button in GB and getting to Bookmarks in the browser is much better than in ICS where you have to “work” to get to the same features..

      • Anonymous

        My gnex battery life appears to be improving substantially with a few complete charges/discharges. Also, the extended life battery lasts a good bit longer.It’s only $25 right now too. The camera takes surprisingly good pictures. The pano mode is irresistable! Display rotation is snappy after a reasonable delay. MTP is simply a much more advanced system that makes all of your memory available to apps or storage.

        True, the speaker isn’t loud, but it’s not bad either. The display is simply gorgeous! Size, rez, contrast altogether is more desirable than any other phone.

        On the downside, some of the voice commands don’t work right, Verizon’s 4G LTE has been spotty, and there needs to be a faster way to get to bookmarks (perhaps via the quick control). But, I think these things will be resolved via software OTAs shortly.

        Overall the most desirable phone ever produced.

        • Regarding bookmark access, while in the browser hold down the “back” button to pull up the bookmarks. Apologize if you knew this already.

            That doesn’t pull up the bookmarks directly. You still have to tap the bookmarks heading after the page pulls up defaulting to history. I want to tap something or use the quick control to pull up the bookmarks in one step, not two.

          the battery life i’m hoping improves, so far it’s not but i have only recharged a few times

    • TC Infantino

      Totally agree with you!  For me, the Rezound was the only option for the phone that will be with me for at least the next year, probably closer to two.  The specs for the Rezound are top of the line compared to what is currently out.  The feel of the phone is solid and comfortable. Excellent HD screen, great external speaker sound and volume, and it gets better signal at my house than even my OG Droid did (and that is very important because it is not easy to get signal where I live).  I personally can wait for ICS to come to the Rezound, and I know that there will be a way to root it sometime in the near future.  By the time I am getting tired of the stock Sense 3.5 on the phone is most likely when there will either be root or the upgrade to ICS.  I have no buyers remorse with this phone, and I do not think that those who chose another phone were wrong or mistaken.

            I got the extended battery, and the extra battery that comes with the charger. After swapping out the battery a few times, the battery cover won’t latch at the bottom. That will be the next issue. That battery cover is so flimsy, it is only a matter of time.

        True, but don’t forget, the unlockable bootloader is a HUGE deal, especially when compared to the latest Motorola devices, none of which are unlockable at this time.

        Also, Supercurio is already working on audio and screen color enhancements for it, and judging by his Voodoo enhancements for the Galaxy S series of phones, I know for a fact he will make the GNex just that much better!  He’s already noted that the audio quality is very good already (which I have witnessed myself as well), but that he can tweak it a bit more, and there’s a lot of work to do on screen calibration as well.

            Not true. My upgrade is in March and I own a Droid X, on a two year contract. So in my case it’s closer to the two year mark. But I also plan to buy a communication watch instead of a new smart phone, and I also will be eating my neighbors dog that incessantly barks, for dinner tomorrow. I plan to “The Good Son” it, and enjoy a full bottle of premium tequila with the meal.

         Old is the key word because since then I’ve updated my Incredible to the G-Nex as I’m sure many people have.

      • Jeff

        I would agree with but I voted on th old poll and at that point I owned the bionic. Now I own the GNex….. Don’t hate I love all Android phones…

        The Nexus numbers definitely don’t make sense. Note, though, that this isn’t even remotely representative of actual distribution among the population. Only the number of Nexus followers on Droid Life.
        It also might indicate that Nexus owners are that much more likely to want people to know that they have a Nexus. Other phone owners might couldn’t care less.

        • Granted

          Haha! Very astute observation. Faux elitists attitudes run rampant among the clinically retarded. I contribute it to my own made up, phantom-penis-philosophy.

          Yeah, figured it’d be a lot higher than the general population as a whole, but pivoting from 0 to 50% market share even among enthusiasts in a matter of days, when 72% of customers are on phones 1.5 years old or less, is pretty unbelievable.

          Anyone got sales data on it? I’m curious. Amazon lists the Nexus behind the Rezound and RAZR, for Verizon phones, but the time span for the ranking isn’t clear – eg bestselling over the past week, two weeks, two days, etc. It says it’s updated hourly, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the phones that sold best within the last hour. It’s sold out on Amazon and Wirefly, though not at Verizon.

          I really like big screens, so if the Galaxy Nexus is a smashing success, expect to see 4.5″+ screens on high end phones become the standard.

        The old poll actually goes against your thoery…

    • FortitudineVincimus

      Still milking the OG Droid – I didn’t buy into the GN hype and hysteria (which is really is only about ICS as the phone itself is meh) – I am going to wait for CES and see what real true badazz phone is just around the corner and that has a quad core chip.

      My Asus Prime will feed my techie needs for now.

      • Anonymous

        The CES phones will look like crap compared to what’s coming out next Holiday season. I would wait til then if you really want to be impressed. 

        • Gothamsghost

          Yea but can you imagine what the phones in 2013 will be like.  I’d wait til then.  Or no wait… 2014.  If you are always waiting for the next best thing then you would never buy anything.

      I don’t see a problem with droid-life.
      If you take Droid as representing the Verizon Android devices, this is still true.
      If you narrow it down to the Motorola Droid then (or other phones with “Droid” specifically in the name) it’s obviously false.

            confirmed, it was said in jest.

        Kellex said that to me in an email a couple weeks back. Almost word for word. Although, it seems to be generally accepted that all androids are droids to the general public.

          Hah great minds think alike then!

          If that’s why it’s called Droid Life, it needs a name change.  That is the uneducated way of calling it android.

            I’m not sure, is the fact that you are able to paste a link supposed to mean anything to me?  It’s a response to me, so…?

            I never criticized that this was a site predominantly about droids, if you were able to parse that.  I just said there is a difference between droid and android.

          • if you didnt check the link. android life is a companion blog to this that focuses on android outside of verizon.  he wasnt being a tool.

          • Anonymous

            I clicked the link, I understand the nature of the site.  I don’t understand the relevance to any of my comments.  I was merely stating, (for the third time in this thread) android != droid.  They are two different things.  I didn’t say I was looking for an android-life.  I just said that saying droid-life is droid-life because droid and android are the same thing is not a good reason to call it droid life. I’m perfectly fine with the fact that it’s a site centering around verizons line-up, and am perfectly fine that it’s called droidlife, since that’s vzw’s naming scheme for a lot of high end android phones.

          • heh, no disrespect meant, i just wasnt entirely sure from your response.  to me, while I know that the android universe isnt all droid, since I am not willing to switch carriers at the moment, it is basically the same thing as far as what i can get. so i can see why some people kind of consider them the same thing.

          • Andrond

            The reason this site is called droid-life is because it was started as a blog about the DROID. As time progressed and the DROID brand and Android did as well, so did the blog. It wouldn’t make sense to change the name, just widen the focus of what they cover. Yes it’s mostly DROID branded coverage, but just because a lot of Nexus information has been posted lately in no way means that Kellex and the DL crew don’t know the difference between Android and Verizon’s branding for DROID’s…because they certainly do! 

          • Anonymous

            Does it ever end?  I never said anything about the crew not knowing the difference between droid and android.  It seems more than a few commenters don’t know the difference.  It also seems commenters such as yourself cannot be bothered to read the whole thread and see that never once, in the entire thread, where the editors of DL mentioned.  God I hate disqus sometimes.  It’s probably going to send me another email with a comment written by another who cannot read.  I should probably just make a label and send it to trash, where most of them belong.

  • Bionic and loving it. First Android phone and it’s rock solid. Girlfriend and sister both picked one up (and I snagged them both an extended battery for xmas!).

      The bionic is a great phone, even blur is not so bad on it…….I have the galaxy nexus which I like better!

      Yeah, the Bionic is nice. Got one for $99 for my wife the same day I got the Nexus. She’s very happy with it and had the Nexus not come out I’d seriously consider the device. It might have some bugs, but I’m impressed with it.

      No way you have that phone. If you did you wouldn’t be putting the smiley face at the end of your post.

        Yes, I really do have that phone. No, I’m not trolling. I am completely happy with this phone. My first phone on Verizon was the OG Droid, which I still use and flash ROMs on every day. My OG Droid was a trooper. But as far as reliability and even usability, I love the iPhone way more. When I was on AT&T my jailbroken 3G S raped every Android phone out there. And as soon as I can jailbreak this phone, all of the things I miss about my Droid (mostly just tethering) will be gone.
