It's easy to take on and off (though I don't take it off unless I need to pull the battery out), it's got just enough grippiness to it, but it slides in and out of my pocket easily. It doesn't stick or collect fuzz and dust like the silicone cases. And it's one piece. Those hard cases are a pain because the tabs break so easily. This case and the screen protector has kept my DX in PERFECT condition for 15 months now.
It's almost like you quoted a post from me. I am in the exact same boat. My DX is seriously like it has never been used if you were to take off the case and the screen protector.

I walked into Verizon the day of DX release, they tried to sell me their crappy/expensive case and screen protector, I showed them what I got off ebay for 5 dollars (a TPU case and a screen protector) they told me "That isn't as good as ours". Oh yeah? 16 months later, not a scratch on the phone, case and screen protector still working perfect.

My 19 year old son has an Eris as well. He's begging me for an upgrade.

Nexus will be a GREAT upgrade from ANY phone on the market. Erises and OG Droids especially!

Seems to be 3 major jumps happening to get the GNex - the Eris, OG Droid and Dinc.

I just can't wait for the bigger phone. The dinc is a good size but I think the little extra width on the Nexus will be perfect.

Those docks look awesome. That is one thing I really was missing when I got the Incredible instead of the Nexus One. So glad to have a phone (whenever they decide to release it, that is) that will be built for docks.

Historically yes. Does your truck have bluetooth stereo or just mono for a speakerphone? Sound quality should be very very good between the phone and the dock because they'll be right next to each other and with fixed positions relative to each other.

Well, you will probably get better sound going dock->3.5mm than phone->bluetooth, but it might be a smidge better phone->3.5mm. This is based on my experience with other hardware, since I don't have a GSM or LTE GNex yet.

Yeah, Im debating about the case thing. i have always gone with a naked phone. Thats one thing I love about the droid is that it is built like a tank, and Im worried about the nexus in this respect
My droid has dings and scratches all over it though, for some reason I actually like it that way, adds sentimental value or something i guess....

Plus those of us in the Dinc -> Tbolt -> Gnex subgroup. Seems like I recall several others in this category.

I got a Dinc on release day (off contract), then my husband got the X when it released, and I got a terrible case of screen envy. In September when my upgrade was available, I sold my Dinc and got the X...never regretted it because I love the extra screen real estate.

The Bionic caught my eye, but no NFC + delays to market (and outright inferiority to the GS2, which I wanted), caused me to pass on that device.

My story is exactly the same.

lol similar for me except D1 -> TB -> Dinc -> Gnex

i think the incredible is better the the bolt in everyway except the screen and 4G an neither are worth it. I wish i woulda saved the money and bought a used Dinc in the first place

I used to <3 the hardware qwerty on my o.g. but when phones got bigger (i think the evo4g sprint was the first i saw/used) the onscreen keyboard was not a problem for me to use as it felt awkward on the little o.g.

Now that they have finally released Gingerbread, I really like my Tbolt. Love the extra real estate and 4G speed. Biggest issue is the miserable battery life. I finally gave up and went extended.

Yea marks on the phone don't bother me either. Its the ones on the screen that get to me. I ordered the TPU case, not even sure if I'll use it but I'm pretty sure the screen protector that comes with it will be quite cheap.

I'll be on the lookout for another one i think since I always have my phone in my pocket and would hate to get it scratched.

similar for me, my first smartphone was a Motorola Q when alltel had that unlimited data thing. Then i got the Q9C on a 1year contract and loved it. Then i got the omnia and hated it. except for the wonderful camera.. after that its been Android all the way.

I have never owned an 'official' android tablet though. only a nook color on Cm7 and now my 32GB Hp Touchpad on CM7 too

I have traditionally gone screen protector (I like Steinheil or Boxwave crystal clear - next thing to a naked screen and completely invisible), but caseless since I don't like the added bulk. I am a total fussbudget about scratches and dings. My Dinc was and my Tbolt is pristine. Given the talk about plasticy Samsungs, I ordered a TPU case for my (hopefully non-mythical) Gnex, but I'm not sure if / how long I will use it.

I agree the hide button is ridiculous and getting out of hand. If someone WANTS to use it then fine. But to force everyone to do it is stupid. The OP has ALWAYS said its a lounge type thread and off topic conversations are acceptable and expected. So what is there to complain about? I just don't get it.

How would you feel if you were driving 60mph in a posted 60mph zone, but you got stopped and given a speeding ticket bc despite the sped limit sign, the neighbors said you should have been driving 50mph instead.

I for one refuse to use the hide tag and don't really care if I get banned. The OP says off topic conversation is acceptable donor either is or isn't.

What should have tantalized me before the Gnex? When the Dinc came out, my phone was still functioning very well. Honeymoon period, even. I also had to wait until the 2 year contract was up in order to get an upgrade (or 20 months or something).

The Bionic caught my eye, but no NFC + delays to market (and outright inferiority to the GS2, which I wanted), caused me to pass on that device.

Which brings us to th e present. Droid to Gnex. I bet there are a lot of us.

Yep, I'm in about the exact same bout. Been eligible for upgrade and followed bionic news last feb waiting for it. Passed on Bolt, then passed on Bionic as it was delayed way too long. Hoped for GS2 on Verizon then read they passed on it for Gnex. So here I am, waiting since last feb-march for a new phone which will now be the Gnex. These delays have been killing me.

I have never owned an 'official' android tablet though. only a nook color on Cm7 and now my 32GB Hp Touchpad on CM7 too
I also pretty much hated the Omnia. I was waiting (and waiting and waiting) for the Omnia II, when I gave up and went for the Imagio. That was the best WinMo phone I ever had or played with!

I'm reading / posting on a Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G that I have as a loaner fron Big Red to check out for work. Really like it, but I want to check out the ATP before I decide what to buy.

Anyone have an OG droid or anything for that matter that you would like to donate?? (I would obviously cover all shipping costs). My DX just crapped on me and I officially have no phone!!

Edit: I would also have no problem returning it once the Gnex comes out!

My dx died on me a while back, the touch screen would just randomly stop responding and Id have to pull the battery to get it to reboot. I ended up with a droid charge and what a turd that phone's been. Some people act the GB update was the second coming, I still have the same issues. anyone know how the gps is on the nexus? The gps on che charge was awful and would loc me about 1 1/2 miles from where I actually was.

Wow, you pretty much just summed up what happen to mine. It came to a point where I would have to do a battery pull 2-3 times a day. This morning I wake up to a black screen, tried everything- just wont power on. Sucks big time! :/

Man my history has been crazy

G1->Eris->Incredible->Droid X->Fascinate->Thunderbolt->EVO 3d->Photon->SG2 Epic Touch->International GS2->GSM SGN

So I have had a lot of phones, Verizon would always let me upgrade my wife and I's line all the time so that helped and I always sold them for big profits on ebay/craigslist. I really haven't spent much of my money on phones.

When the Incredible first came out, I sold it a month later on ebay for 600.

The SGN right now is the best I have used, then the SGII, then my Droid X.

FWIW Try leaving thexbattery out for 15-30 min. That has revived a few seemingly-dead phones at the office.

Wow, I feel so...inadequate. See if you can keep up with mine:

Nokia candy bar phones --> iPhone (edge) --> iPhone 3gs --> SGN (soon hopefully)

In my defense I've been wanting to switch to android for the past year but had to wait for my contract to expire in June and now waiting for the right device.

Sorry to hear that. It's a bit chilly here but the sun is shining. I'd say come visit but future Han seems to think that's a bad idea.

Default C'mon COSTCO! Go Costco!

Heh! This is not a prediction, and I was only funnin with the "Got Out Of Dodge" phrase.

As a time killer before the GA - LSU Game I called my local COSTCO's Wireless Advocates Kiosk and spoke with the manager.

I opened with: "I understand the Galaxy Nexus is coming soon and I am wondering if Costco will have a package like the Bionic did with the OEM accessories.

He returned volley with a "Not sure about the included package other than there will be some sort of a package as the norm. The OEM package had lots of advanced promotion so most likely it will not be an OEM package. But until we get the pallet....who knows. We always include a Blah Blah..(....I'll save you that.....).

I was then informed without asking - the GN is shown on our system as "Shipped". I have no tracking data yet".

Then he enthusiastically asked if he could call when he knows more. I asked, "Know more about the package?". He said yes and to let you know when it will be available.
We exchanged contact info and I called his back to confirm.

So.............
