This. It was by far the easiest to hold out of it and the two Rs. The RAZR was last, awkward feeling. The rezound felt pretty close to my thunderbolt, but not as heavy.

I apologise for not being around too much today. We are trying to get all of our holiday shopping done today.

We do have some wonder insights from Secret Santa for all the good little Nexaholics in Android land. Hope this answers some questions for some of you.

I had some concerns about the screen. Frankly, the screen is the selling point of any smartphone for me.

I was conerned about the tendency AMOLED has to impart a teal tone to the whites. This one is pretty good up to about 30į off-axis in any direction. Beyond that whites start to go teal. Rating: Acceptable

Pentile and resolution was also a concern. Forget about it. My eyes literally can't focus close enough to pick out individual pixel, let alone sub-pixels. Rating: Outstanding

Feel and tactile response is also important to me. I HATE the feeling of my son's iPod Touch's glass. It feels sticky or squeaky as you slide your finger over it. HATE that! The flip-side to that is the responsiveness of the digitizer. The Apple was hands down superior to my OG Droid...and the D1 was pretty decent. The Galaxy Nexus combines the best of both worlds. The screen is slippery like Gorilla Glass and yet repsonsive like an Apple. The slightest gesture registers in an almost telepathic way. Rating: Outstanding

I had some concerns about the curved chassis at the headphone jack. My 'phones have a large diameter grip that I was afraid might interfere. It doesn't. No problem. Those of us with studio-grade headphones needn't worry.

The power botton and volume up button are a little too close to the same axis. I keep mashing them both when I only want one or the other. I'll get used to it.

The lack of printing on the face and relatively symetrical build/balance makes it less tactile and intuitive to orient correctly in your hand. I've found myself holding it upside down and searching for the power button. Again, I'm sure I'll get use to it.

The buttons themselves have a very nice feel. They have just enough travel and "breakover" to be satisfying without protruding from the chassis too far. Much better than the mushy buttons on the OG.

The curve of the glass is too subtle, IMO. I wonder if the GSM version, with it's thinner profile, makes it seem more dramatic.

Speaking of the GSM, the LTE version is DEFINITELY NOT BLACK. I would call it gunmetal or dark silver.

Um...it uses a MICRO SIM, if there was any doubt.

The vibration used for feedback is nice. The oscilation frequency is much higher than the OG and it feels like there is less play, so the overall feel is "tighter" or more controlled.

Jury is still out on reception. It's certainly NOT BAD. I'm in a single story office made of brick and steel in a fringe area and at my desk it's showing -93 dBm 2 asu and 3G service. Other side of the office, closer to the windows, it switches to 4G. Considering I wasn't even expecting 4G here, I'm pretty happy so far.

Let me know if there is anything else I can answer.

Oh...6 hours uptime and still no update.

Also the husband cable is 59".

I find it very weird that I'm not jealous of the person who snagged a Nexus.

This is troubling.

I have a MS3, and see the same thing, I get 29-30, 4-5 higher than what was advertised. Of course, that is driving nice... Your's a hatch or sedan?

Has any of the almost got it peeps been someone trying to buy full retail? I would think that would go off without a hitch at any place unlike bestbuy where they have the retail price and product in their system. Not sure how many places would have that though and some like Costco won't sell full retail.

BAM! slap in the face.

stupid Verizon. They need some competition, BAD. This launch is what happens when the only (developed) LTE provider in the US gets exclusivity from Google. Bad news, from start to finish.

Question for everyone... how does Radio Shack, Costco, Premium Resellers, Best Buy, etc. handle grandfathered unlimited data? I've always been leery which is why I never considered getting one anywhere other than a corporate VZW. Thoughts?

Still feel that way now?

Actually I am happy for them. I wish VZW wasn't so serious about a few getting out, so they didn't have to hide.

But Secret Santa, thanks for sharing! And thanks for being a messenger OTD, how does it feel to have everyone waiting for you to relay stuff? Steven and Han were getting all the attention

P.S. is husband cable supposed to be power cable?

I seriously wish we could just buy our phones directly from the manufacturer and use it on the network of our choice. I understand that the costs would be higher for the devices, but our monthly bills could also be lower because the cell phone companies aren't having to subsidize them.

The way it is done now makes about as much sense as telling someone they have to buy their television through their cable/satellite provider.

I think it's a case where it's probably more painful to get one and have to return it, then to just know you aren't getting one.

For all you who have held a demo unit. How is it possible that the phones so light but feels so well built and solid? This is one of my major concerns- I couldn't stand how light and cheap the samsung charge felt. I'm 6'3'' 220- I need a little bit of weight in my hands for something to feel well built .

Hatch...They didn't make the Premium in Sedan...It actually takes weight off the back for cornering...I Live mostly in Far Northern Wisconsin...Heated mirrors, Heated Wipers, and Heated seats are something I couldn't pass up on

Just to be clear I had absolutely no issues activating the Nexus.

I even made 3 calls on it. If you notice my screenshot I have the voice mail indicator on the screen from the store that left me a message.

The odd part is the "couldn't make a phone call" bug as the supposed explanation for the delay. SamMax received calls the phone that SamMax temporarily had, and that's how Verizon was able to leave a message to bring it back.

This is troubling.

Going to guess a lot of that has to do with you having a phone that's working fairly well as opposed to the OG Droid that was dying on you. You aren't feeling the need for a phone as keenly as you were. Combine that with other shiny objects competing for your attention (Tprime), and you're not as 'needy' of the Gnex as you were say a month ago.

Isn't the Razr wider than the GNex??

I have a feeling more will be revealed. You never know, but that's my feeling.

Its getting tight for me now as I am traveling on the 17th.

I called the once confident Costco rep who yesterday was feathering the tether nest at the Kiosk as we spoke and he responded today .......

"I'm sorry Mr. gapi, but this doggoned Verizon Yo-Yo phone has made a donkey of me for the last time. All I will say from this point is if we have it or not. I'm worn out on the thing. I have phones sitting here because customers keep looking for that one."

Because its thin. It doesn't feel like a big hollow peice of plastic like the charge did.

It's far weighter than I expected it to be. Feels perfect IMO, much like the OG Incredible did.

The way it is done now makes about as much sense as telling someone they have to buy their television through their cable/satellite provider.
I've yelled this meme in forums on cellphones for YEARS. So annoying to me this isn't even an option. And when a company such as T-Mo does offer unsubsidized pricing for plans if I am not mistaken they give you a pretty crap discount compared to the sorts of incentive money it seems retailers get for selling devices.

I think to make this happen, we consumers need to DEMAND that it does. Tell them we don't want a contract and subsidized pricing, but rather better monthly cost and pay whatever the device costs from whomever we want. As long as most customers are happy with the subsidy regime we are stuck I am afraid as no other carriers seem to want to set things up different.

My good old Eris has been rooted!

I rooted mine a week ago.

Yeah right after I put that, "Secret Santa" via OTD gave us a nice little bit of info. I can definitely live with that delivery, just saying, can get more real time info the other way.

Trust me, we'd all be atwitter about it if there was. Also, the most recent info tends to be in the first post. Steven and the other mods keep it pretty much up to date with rumors, leaks and pics.

And honestly, IMO, the off topicness here and there is part of the thread's charm and has contributed greatly to the sense of community here. I've commended them privately before, but Steven, Early and OTD have done an amazing job of keeping us relatively on track and civil (though some of that has to do with the wonderful folks posting here as well) without throwing the mod powers around willy-nilly like I've seen on some boards. They deserve a lot for helping to forge this community into what it is today. This isn't really a thread, it's a conversation among friends and that's quite frankly just awesome. I'd not go anywhere else for news without bringing it back here to my Gnex family because this place is like home, and the only thing I thank Verizon for with the delays is letting me spend just a bit longer with the great folks here.


...but since you're new here I'll refrain from the off topic stuff for a bit to raise the signal-to-noise ratio on GNex news since I've got nothing today.
I think I found the off topic tag Testing
