I've been with Verizon for over 10 years, and was really miffed when they yanked the Nexus 1 rug out from under us... so I got an Incredible. But I would have had the N1 if they had released it.

Poor Samsung. So many people wanted to buy the Galaxy Tab here in Australia since ages ago and if it is finally released within the next 2 weeks, not as many people will want it anymore...especially since the Transformer Prime should be released soon. All that lost business...damn Apple.

This'll be my first Android, but I've been going through this same waiting game of Verizon holding back RIM's OS updates, having to rely on overseas carriers to release something, or else various (sometimes questionable) community mods. My phone was more-or-less abandoned by RIM & Verizon after about a year, with plenty of bugs and even some broken features that worked in previous releases.

I'm practically salivating at the thought of having something close to a direct OS pipe from Google. I know it's not going to be quite that easy, but the GNex is bound to be the best-supported device I've ever owned.

Same for me. I waited and waited. And waited. Finally said screw it and went for the DInc. Not happening this time. I'll wait until January for the Nexus if I have to.

Speaking for OG Droid owners:
Unless I'm mistaken, the Droid was released before the Nexus One and it's just now been 2 years since the Droid was released (11/09). So, many of us who stick out the two year contracts haven't had an upgrade since. Having seen what's happened in those 2 years has made the SGN the obvious choice in upgrades.

Dear Verizon,

So why are you bothering?

Correct. Nexus came a good couple months after and the Incredible was a solid 5 months after. If you didn't want to pay full price, the Bionic was really the first "upgrade" option (using the term upgrade loosely since I think if I had a choice, I'd still pick my OG Droid--I love the screen!).\

Also, keep in mind, the OG Droid is as close to a Nexus device as possible on Verizon- No skin, fastest with the updates while they happened.

Hi everyone, I've been keeping up with this thread on my iPad, but I've mostly refrained from posting (too lazy to type without a physical keyboard). I am nearly 100% sold on getting the VZW Nexus over the iPhone 4S. I jumped the gun and bought a Droid Bionic earlier this year, which replaced my iPhone 4. Love LTE, but not entirely satisfied with the Bionic. I have quite a bit of experience with both iOS and Android, so I typically jump back and forth fairly often.

My main concerns about the Nexus are mainly those that have been brought up before, but I also realize that everything's a compromise of sorts:

1) The "Nexus" experience. I'm at the point where I'm really only interested in stock Android phones from now on. I'm tired of the skins, the delayed updates, and the bloatware that takes too much time and effort to fully remove. However, I too am concerned whether we'll truly get the "Nexus" experience from this phone. Because of Verizon's branding, Verizon's apps, and the highly publicized delays, I'm very concerned about the future for this phone. Our version is obviously not going to be the development phone, and one has to wonder how long it'll take to build an update for our phone after the GSM version gets an update? I think it's reasonable to assume that all updates will have to go through Verizon, and we know how long Verizon's testing process takes. Hopefully, since they only have a couple of their apps on the phone, the LTE version will get updates shortly after the GSM version, but I'm skeptical.

2) Camera. The iPhone 4 camera was good. The Bionic's camera is truly horrendous: the sensor produces subpar photos, and the camera interface is slow, laggy, and cumbersome to use. Moving to the Nexus would be a leap forward in user interface, but likely a step backward from my previous iPhone 4 (and certainly not as good as the iPhone 4S's sensor). I use the camera on my phone often enough that this is a concern, but probably not a deal-breaker. Admittedly, most of the photos I take are uploaded to Facebook or Foursquare anyway, so superb photo quality is not always a requirement. I really like the idea of a fast and responsive camera interface, though. I wonder how much my Bionic would improve when it's updated to ICS (which admittedly may be well into next year before I'd see it)?

3) Battery Life. Again, my iPhone 4 had very good battery life. I have heard of some battery issues on the 4S, but overall it's probably considerably better than most 4G LTE phones. I'm sporting the extended battery on my Bionic and it has done me well: I typically get about 10 hours of heavy use (about an hour's worth of Hotspot use as well as Bluetooth audio streaming off and on) and well over 18 hours of light use (mostly in my pocket with some occasional browsing or calls). This battery, however, is 2760mAh compared to the 1850mAh battery on the LTE Nexus (if I remember right?). So unless they make an extended battery available for the Nexus, I would be significantly downgrading my battery life by switching to the Nexus.

Those are my main concerns... My knee-jerk reaction is that I should probably just keep my Bionic, but there are several things that have really drawn me to it:

1) The "Nexus" experience. Despite my concerns over Verizon's interference, in all likelihood we'll still get updates faster than most other phones, and the phone should remain fairly bloatware-free. As I said earlier, I really feel strongly about only having pure Android OS phones from now on. So this reason alone almost seems worth of an upgrade from ANY skinned Android phone, no?

2) The 720p Screen. Despite it being a "pentile" display, by all accounts it seems to be a superb screen. My Bionic is also a pentile display and most of the time it doesn't bother me. But being lower resolution, it's definitely not as crisp as the iPhone's Retina display. And I definitely can see the pentile artifacts, depending on the application. I've never had a Samsung phone before either, so I'm intrigued by the AMOLED characteristics that make blacks better and improved contrast/color.

3) ICS. Obviously, the lure of Ice Cream Sandwich is one of the main factors as well. I know my Bionic will eventually get an ICS update, but knowing Motorola and Verizon, it won't be until well into next year. And even then, the initial release will likely be buggy and still full of bloatware. Being able to upgrade to ICS now and know that it will be a pure Android phone is a great benefit.

So yeah, I'm pretty much convinced to go with the Nexus, so I apologize for my "thinking out loud". As a previous iPhone user, I admit I was pretty attracted to the 4S as well - especially Siri and the camera. However, the lack of LTE is really a deal-breaker for me: I honestly never want to go back to 3G again. And LTE coverage is very good in my area. And I'm still under the grandfathered unlimited plan. So yeah, it looks like the Nexus will be my next phone (at least until an LTE iPhone is available, lol).

Good Morning GNexers! Since most of us operate on a Sunday-Saturday week, we can now say that the week of the Gnex has finally arrived! Only 4 days to go!

Lots of good pics from the Samsung store last night. I can't wait much longer to be able to see all this stuff myself. If there is going to be a pre-order, tomorrow has got to be the day.

This is exactly why I couldn't stand other recent releases, and am waiting for Nexus instead.

No it's a single log in for vzw branded apps for those of us who use some. Like I use the My verizon app to track usage for my mother in law and I love NFL mobile. So it allows me to use those apps

Never heard of paying for things in vending machines, but Nokia is a Finnish company so it is possible.

Good Morning!


Does anyone know what is happening with Verizon's unlimited data plan in March? I have unlimited now, but am considering signing up for double data while I can, if the unlimited data ends in March.


Anyone with a crystal ball and/or advice?

Your unlimited plan will go at least until the end of your contract date. It remains to be seen whether Verizon will end the unlimited and when. But even if/when they do end it, only new signups after that date will be affected - the rest will enjoy the unlimited at least until the end of their contracts.

You should stay put on your unlimited data.

And, it's my understanding the the double data is available only for new lines buying a new phone. Not sure, though...

What is your source for this news? I have been told that, once on unlimited, you're always on unlimited. Period.

Besides, Verizon can't change the terms of the contract on the fly like that. If, after my next contract is up, they decide to put us all on tiered? I'll save up, buy full retail and stay month-to-month on unlimited forever.

the rational is quite simple.... chief doesnt count launch day because when its here,its here. you dont have to wait through that day like you would if it were launching the following day. also, after a reasonable time today, say 6pm, today will no longer be counted in the countdown either as the waiting through today will effectively be far more over than there is left.

There was a link to an article on this forum a week or so ago that said Verizon would stop grandfathering unlimited data in March, 2012. I don't know what that means, so I apologize if I assumed the worst.

Thank you for your help with this!
