One thing about HTC is they used awesome radios and rarely if ever dropped a call.

I'm sure the Galaxy Nexus has the same crappy radios that most if not all recent Samsung phones have.

I really want this phone but not sure if being unhappy a few weeks later is worth it.
With each new Samsung product I have noticed the radios have gotten better. From the Moment, to the Epic, then the Nexus, and now the Epic Touch. I hear some people having trouble with their GPS on their ET4G but mine locks almost immediately. I rarely have 1 or 3 bars of service, it's always 4 or more.

Maybe I haven't spend enough time with an HTC or Motorola device to see a BIG difference. But then again, I don't want to. Where Samsung may lack some in radios it makes up for in camera quality, battery life, thinness, and screen tech. IMO
