    Was gonna leave this one alone but I then saw a troll that caused me to climb out of a cave and make a response. I start this statement as a current Galaxy Nexus owner:

    I made the switch because I realize that having a battery that lasts longer than a shift at work is a good idea.

    I switched over because removable and expandable memory isn’t just an accessory, it is a standard that we have all come to accept.

    I switched over because Gorilla Glass, Kevlar, and Metal bodies aren’t just catch phrases, they are the future.

    I made the switch because while everyone bi ches about unlocked bootloaders, most of those Gnex owners were going bonkers last week about the VZW OTA update, thus verifying that a majority of them never unlocked. nor rooted.

    I made the switch because I, like the majority of the people in here, use a launcher and regardless of sense, blur, whiz, or stock, it all looks and acts the same.

    I like native HDMI support.

    I don’t want to pay $90 for a car dock.

    I don’t want my phone to snap like a taco when I drop it from 4ft. (my gnex snapped the screen right across the center after a face down 3ft fall.)

    I switched because I don’t want to own a device with an *asterisk when buying accessories. (*not compatible with the Verizon 4G LTE model)

    I switched because it has a good battery life, a great display, will have ICS, has free tether (foxfi), is stable, has expandable memory, has an excellent HDMI interface, actually has reception worth noting, doesn’t need to be rommed because I have everything I need, and finally because it is a well built device that doesn’t feel as cheap as my TV remote.

    But I digress, wouldn’t want to get carried away……

      Blur is not stable. And where is Motorola ICS?

      • Philip A. Kaiser

        ICS is right around the corner and using various launchers, I have never experienced stability problems on any of my Moto devices. 4.0.2 on my Nex however, even being stock, had issues.

    This is my first smartphone. I got it 2 weeks ago and love it. I chose to get the razr maxx over the galaxy nexus because of the battery life and hoping to soon receive the update of ICE.

    How about a contest for those of us that switched FROM a motorola device? :P

  • Smart Al Sushi Sandwich

    Does this “switcher” contest switch the bootloader to unlocked?

    • Joe Lopez

      I see what you did there with your name

      • mctypething

        me too bro

        • Dr_Buttballs

          Brooooooo

    • LiterofCola

      Original!

  • Adam

    Just put in a thousand words. Kissed some behind, but hey, gotta do whatcha gotta do! Thanks, Tim.

    i tried to fill out the form and put that i DIDNT switch to them due to their POS locked bootloader and bloatware and their lack of ICS.. But then the pos wanted me to allow some app to link to my facebook.. no thanks

  • Butters619

    I read “$2500 Grand Price” as a “Prize of $2500 Grand”

    …needless to say it is not a 2.5 million dollar grand prize…

    Just submitted my entry! Wish me luck!

    I loved my Motorola Droid (1), but every Motorola phone made since than has had a locked bootloader. When my contract finally ran out, I bought a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and I love it! I can put whatever software I want on it, and I know that even when Samsung, Google, and Verizon don’t release updates, I can install updates myself!

    When a new version of Android OS comes out, I can install it as soon as I finish compiling it. I don’t have to wait for the manufacturer to do it! (How’s ICS coming for the RAZR, btw? Gonna get that out before the phone is obsolete? it’s been 6 months already!)

    In short, I love the flexibility and freedom my Samsung Galaxy Nexus offers me, and that’s why I switched to it from my Motorola Droid.

    Oh, wait, I think I read this wrong. You wanted to know why people switched TO Motorola? Oops.

      +1!

    • EC8CH

      Good luck to you sir. You are epic.

    • http://twitter.com/Bateluer Robert Boluyt

      Dammit! You stole my idea. :P
      They should be slammed with entries like these from as many people as possible.

    • Brian

      A+. Would read again.

    • rockstar323

      Former Motorola to Galaxy Nexus user myself. I also filled it out pointing out some of the same stuff you did. I also brought up the fact that users who root and try different ROMs may be the minority of Android users, we’re are, most of the time, the ones that friends and family go to when they need advice on getting a new phone.

      • Duong Vu

        EXACTLY. People go to the enthusiast for opinions; why would you shun the enthusiast? Samsung got it–Moto didn’t.

      • jak_341

        I think people underestimate the numbers of customs put on Android phones. I think 50 percent or more of Android users root and custom their phones

        • Doug Wing

          There is NO WAY that is even remotely accurate. Just among my family there are two rooted phones and perhaps 20 non rooted.

          It could be 50% of tech savvy guys 16-50, but it is not 50% of teenage girls, 50% of business users, not 50% of senior citizens (yes all parents in family have smartphones), not 50% of those who don’t care to tinker with their phones.

        • LiterofCola

          You’re delusional

      • michael arazan

        Same here, went from the og droid 1 to a gnex, displease on how moto phones were sub par imo. Hopefully this will change with the moto nexus that i’ve been waiting a long time for.

        • https://plus.google.com/110773438514346746273/ tjhrulz

          I think instead of all the GS3 polls we should have one on if you owned a Moto Droid what device did you switch to when your contract went up.

          Some days I still miss that thing, but then I look at my Gnex and everything is better.

    • azndan4

      I was thinking the exact same thing.

    • jak_341

      Epic.

    • LiterofCola

      Trolls gonna troll

    • http://twitter.com/JMoniclesINVSN Jay Monicle

      Same here… went from DX to GNEX

  • http://www.facebook.com/markaaron.collado Mark Aaron Collado

    What if I’ve always had Motorola ? and upgraded to the bionic?

  • Daniel Dlugos

    And yet again, bionic users get shafted.

    • http://twitter.com/robkein Rob Kein

      Yeah, I would shill any product for $2,500!!!
