My passion for smartphones began with.... (I hate to admit this) the BB Storm. I remember camping out at 4 AM at my local VZW store and posting obsessively with all my fellow campers on the Crackberry forums. I had so much fun I knew I was hooked on the whole process, the build-up (on the forums) the camping and finally receiving and contributing to the community.

Then one day on that forum somebody posted a link about a new phone coming out called DROID on VZ. I quickly became intrigued but was struggling with switching platforms because at that time I thought I was a die hard BB fan and loved using BBM with all my friends and family. The more and more I learned about the DROID the more I started realizing how much the BB was lacking.

My "obsession" quickly turned to the Original Droid. I believe at that time I made a profile on AF but never really got in to posting on here. The day finally arrived and I took the day off work and got my VZW store early and bought the Droid. I was hooked at that point, BB OS didn't hold up at all compared to Android. I loved the openess of the platform, the web browser, learning how to "root" my phone for the first time.

I remember my first sense of accomplishment when I rooted my phone and got pinch-to-zoom to work on my browser, how awesome!

I was so jealous when I saw the Nexus 1 was being released on T-Mobile but that feeling was soon negated when I saw that it would be arriving on VZW soon. Well as we all know, that began to slip further and further back and then all the sudden the DINC was captured in the Wild. That quickly became my must-have phone.

I believe if my memory serves me correctly I was able to pre-order the DINC at Best Buy by purchasing a 50.00 gift card. I was the first to pre-order and had the first appointment of the morning. I took the day off work and arrived at the store, dashed to the mobile department and was told their shipment of DINC's did not arrive yet. I was FURIOUS! They assured me the shipment was on its way and would be there by 2 PM that day.

Of course I couldn't wait so I left and went to my VZW store and they had plenty in stock. So I purchased it there instead. I loved the DINC it was an awesome phone and I literally talked my whole family in to getting one. Then the DX came out.

I got my mother all up in the hype of getting a new phone so she accompanied me to camp out at a VZW store and buy the DX. I had that phone for about 2 weeks before I couldn't stand it anymore so I went back to the DINC.

At that time I told myself I wouldn't get another phone till a phone was was released with a 4in screen and front facing camera... And wouldn't you know the DINC 2 came out. So that brings me to today and my current phone. (I should mention I got the iphone 4 when it was released to test it out. I kept it for 30 days: Absolutely gorgeous phone and gorgeous display but I could not stand not having free navigation and the openess of android so I dropped it)

There was a point where I left my DINC 2 at work and was leaving on a week long trip that night so I ran out and bought the Charge. I loved the 4G on that phone and the blazing speeds, I hated taking that one back, but I saw the reports on BGR about a "nexus prime" device that was finally coming to VZW.

I began regliously follow the news on the SGN. I was so disappointed when the press conference got pushed back but when it was finally rescheduled I decided I was going to throw and Ice Cream Sandwich party. I bought a bunch of Ice Cream Sandwiches, had some friends over and put the live feed on the big screen and I saw the next stage in Android and I have been excited ever since.

A little about my personal life...

I'm 26 years old and in the Air Force, I'm married to a beautiful wife and we just had our first child a little over 1 year ago. My wife has been absolutely supportive of my passion for technology (although it is a lucrative business)

I lurk on the forums every single day itching for any new news. Reading here has definitely passed the time and I cannot wait to get back in the forum community and start to contribute again.

Warm welcome to you! Thank you for serving!

But Notes battery is 2500mAh and as far as I can see, the Note doesn't have NFC.

So, nope.

Could be. Samsung's web page doesn't indicate that, says its the standard battery, but who knows.

I am betting this is it people. Going all in like OTD at the poker table. And my feet are still tapping from the excitement.

Here's the deal folks. If your CSR knows anything about the SGN, they are getting their info from us and will spit it right back at us. It's one big circle of rumor. It gets really funny when we report it as news, after we hear from them after they hear it from us!

As we're getting closer and closer, I'm at a crossroads. Do I pick up this wonderphone on launch day, or do I wait until there are some solid reviews and see what bugs may or may not be present?

Decisions, decisions...

But here's the kicker. 7.77Wh @ 3.7V isn't a 1750mAh battery. Nor is it 1850mAh.

Folks, you're looking at a 2100mAh battery!!!!!

Let's not get too excited yet, as we all know how companies use stock photos. But with all the secrecy surrounding this handset, it wouldn't surprise me to see them sneak this in. Also, I don't know of any other Samsung handset that has NFC, and a battery that large.

Fingers crossed.....big time.

Edit: For reference, the GSM GNex battery is 6.48Wh. This is looking GOOD!!!
If there have been some delays with the release of this device, might this be the reason? Battery upgrade? Exciting!

Depends on your personality and/or situation....can you wait? If so I thinks its a grand idea to wait to see initial impressions from real world use

For those of you with broken phones/etc, why not test the waters on the RAZR (or ReZound)?

VZW does offer a 14-day worry-free guarantee! You get a phone for a week, and if the SGN does get delayed for more than 14 days you can "return" your new contract

I'm pretty sure that worry "free" thing now includes a 35$ restocking fee...

Hola peeps!

My Dinc2 came in and I'm posting via the Phandroid app. It is an amazing upgrade from my OG, may she rest in peace. If you can't afford the Nexus or if you want to wait for whatever reason and you are rocking a dying OG, this is an excellent choice. 0$ from Wirefly with two year contract; however I'll probably upgrade out of pocket in 6 months.

W00t! So excited for y'all. One more week! Hubby will probably get a Nexus so I'll be able to play sooner than later.

Funny about this. I've seen others charged it and I know about the fee. However, I've returned 3 phones within the 14 day period (used to be 30 days btw) and have never been charged this fee guess I'm lucky.

Exactly Stephen. That also goes for most of the articles on the net.

I told that story a few days ago where I asked about the GNex and the CSR reps at the verizon store tried looking up its release date on Google.

Is the RAZR available only at Verizon tomorrow, or will it be at Best Buy, too? I might go ahead and test drive it with their 30-day return period. . .just until the SGN comes out, of course

Exactly my speeds in Atlanta over a 2 week period that I had it. I think it's a daRn good phone though unlike a lot of other opinions on it

W00t! So excited for y'all. One more week! Hubby will probably get a Nexus so I'll be able to play sooner than later.

Congrats! My wife recently picked up a DInc2 and she loves it.

And also pay $35 for that priviledge. For some here, a $300 phone is a serious investment, and $35 on top of that only worsens the deal. Not to mention all the time and hassle that entails.

And finally, it is not morally ethical. I know some will disagree with me, but when you pick up something with no intention to keep it, just to return it, that costs you time and money, costs verizon money, and ends up costing everyone more money. Drop in the bucket, for sure, but it still doesn't make it right.

I have never owned a Samsung phone, actually Samsung anything, my friend just brought by his Fascinate and I do have to say the screen was awesome! His pictures and videos were awesome.

Am I going to be hugely surprised by the Nexus when it comes out compared to the phones I used in the past? TP2, D1, D2, D2G, D3

Are Samsung's displays that much better than Motorolas? To me it sure looked like it. Come on Nexus!!!

I know this could be in the RAZR forum but my question mostly applies to LTE. According to this review by the AP the battery only lasted 2.5 hours with some heavy use while on 4G. Seriously? That doesn't seem to fit with some of the other reviews I've read.

With a 1780mah battery I would think it should last longer. Is this any indication of what we should expect (unless of course we get that huge 2100mah battery) with the Gnex?

I'm curious to hear what some of your experiences with 4G LTE are. I currently have a Dinc which has absolutely terrible battery life so I'm really REALLY hoping for something better with the Gnex even with 4G on all day.

Somehow along the way I missed this article. Now I really wand ICS although I am not sure how long I will have to wait for it. Most folks here are Verizon users and have a short wait to get the phone. Unfortunately I am an AT&T user and I am not sure how long I will have to wait for this phone to get to there. If it ever will... Anyone willing to venture out and give there thoughts on:

1) Will the Galaxy Nexus get to AT&T? And when?
2) If not, how long til ICS gets to the AT&T SGS2?

But here's the kicker. 7.77Wh @ 3.7V isn't a 1750mAh battery. Nor is it 1850mAh.

Folks, you're looking at a 2100mAh battery!!!!!

Let's not get too excited yet, as we all know how companies use stock photos. But with all the secrecy surrounding this handset, it wouldn't surprise me to see them sneak this in. Also, I don't know of any other Samsung handset that has NFC, and a battery that large.

Fingers crossed.....big time.

Edit: For reference, the GSM GNex battery is 6.48Wh. This is looking GOOD!!!
Potentially the post of the day right here. Nice find.

Being a prosecutor, I would usually agree with you. However, given their $35 "restocking fee", I'd probably look at it as a wash/rental. You're still paying for the data that you're consuming, and you're paying them for the privilege of testing it for a little while.

A friend of mine once bought a phone for this girlfriend right before going to pick her up (she had asked him to get her an iPhone 4). When he arrived to get her, she said that it was the wrong phone (he had gotten her a Charge, I think). She didn't want it. They took it right back to the store. All in all, it was about 30 minutes after purchasing it. The stupid store manager would not waive the "restocking fee".

So if I get a phone, even intending to not keep it past 14 days or whatever it is, take very good care of it, and pay their stupid restocking fee, I have no issues with it.

(My wife wanted to return a box of chocolate Cheerios recently simply because she didn't like it. I did object to that....to my knowledge Cheerios isn't in the business of screwing me over every chance it gets.)

I have heard some talk around here about this thread ending when the Verizon GN comes out. As a Tmo customer who will be waiting for it to come to his network, I propose that this thread should not end until all "Galaxy Nexus" versions have been released in the US. You guys who get your VZW versions can be our testers as well as you importers. Advantages to this are, we all get to keep our growing family together a little while longer, and also we will have more time to get to that record number of posts we're trying to get to. Mods, is this possible???

If it were burning hot, streaming an HD movie off of LTE with GPS, bluetooth running... I just don't know, draining a 1780 mAh battery that fast, thats pretty intense.

It could be the SGSII-HD-LTE battery...

Default Hello to my new favorite thread

I've been lurking for a week or two, but I haven't been refreshing with the urgency I had back in the pre-Incredible release thread. My Incredible (that I was in such a hurry to pre-order and that I received on release day) has stood up very well, and I'm still so tickled with what I can do with, that I can be patient. Yes, I'm looking forward to the Nexus, but I have to say I'm really enjoying the phone that I have right now - such is my delight with Android.

So, someone asked about applications.

One thing I am really looking forward to is 4G. I have been using Remote Potato (a PC program) to stream my TV recordings from my Windows 7 HTPC to the Remote Media Center app on my phone. The setup works very well, but I know it'll be that much better once I can take advantage of the faster network. RMC is a little hard to configure at first (I still can't quite get it to wake my PC up) but once you get it right you can access just about all your media, and you can even use it to schedule recordings remotely. I'd have to say it's my favorite app.

Steven, did your source ever specify the battery size, or just that there was an upgrade over the GSM version?

There. Now I feel better. Back to the GNex waiting. Unless I find myself at Verizon at 11:11 tomorrow. Hoping for some more news today (Mind you, who in this forum isn't?) since my impatience is lingering and my daily morning sushi breakfast isn't sating me. "Calgon! Take me away!!"

Mistakes happen, and people change thier minds, and honestly there are people who do want to test drive handsets. I have no issue with that. I do have issue with people who have no intention of keeping an item, only to return it.

Verizon used to let you switch handsets for free, and also let you do more than one trade in.

Yeah, after reading your hidden rant, I believe I've changed my point of view on it. Sending a perfectly good phone to be refurbished simply because you never intended to keep it does seem a little wrong.

I guess my feeling on it was more a result of having a dislike/hate relationship with the company in question.

Oh well, it was my viewpoint, but I wasn't married to it.

I wouldn't be worried at all.

However, resellers might not be guranteed stock on launch day if supply is constrained. So it may take an extra couple of days to get yours, but you'll get it.

I was a little worried for you as well, but more out of the sense that if this thing gets a pre-order online or a web-only period for a while, you are depending on them to order it for you in a timely fashion (since they're not a corporate store, I suppose they'd have to order them manually).

If Verizon goes the iPhone 4 route and starts ordering at some ungodly hour like 3am, I highly doubt your sales rep will set his alarm clock. If they sell out within a short period of time, you may be screwed.

But, that's all based on pure speculation. There might be no reason to worry at all, and you might end up being the first one to get it!

Who knows.

I did already, at the store. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate it maybe an 8 or 8.5.

I'm tempted, though, because I just want something new and I'm tired of looking at my OG Droid. But I suppose I'll just hang in there.
