not that i think this is going to happen, but it was rumored to be the "droid prime" before it was officially confirmed as a "nexus" device on VZ.

seriously though, sleep now.

You are definitely not the only one. I'm right there with you, although for different reasons. A pre-order would foul my plans.

Both the Razr and Rezound came out on amazon wireless and other online retailers the same day it was availible at verizon for almost $100 less but you couldn't pre-order, it just popped up on the sites the day it dropped. I have a feeling the gnex will be the same, and if a pre-order comes out, it would be extremely hard for me to fight my fears of it selling out and be forced to pre-order loosing $200 (ordering one for the wife too)

Am I correct in assuming that if I get the Re(nt)zound using a "New Every 2" discount and later exchange it for the Nexus, I'd lose that $30 in addition to the $35 restocking fee?

FWIW, I've played with both phones in-store and to me it's a slam dunk for the Rezound. But it really depends on what you're looking for in a device.

ReZound. There is virtually (by that I mean 99.9% chance against) that the RAZR's bootloader will ever been unlocked, while there is still a decent precedent of "locked" HTC phones being exploited. What that means is that the ReZound will, likely, be the first of the two to unofficially receive ICS thanks to the talented devs around various forums. I will say that with the caveat that the ReZound, as of yet, has not been found to be exploitable.

Truthfully, unless you must, I would not pick until the GNex is confirmed to be only 16GBs. Which, right now, is only speculation on our part with no firm answer.

While the rezound is much quicker, I actually found the colors on the RAZR to be a tad better in a side by side test of random websites. Which just reinforces the need for the nexus.

Sorry. I should have been clearer. Is the Nexus that great a device? Or would the average user be happy with the rezound or razr?

Depends on what you want. The average user would definitely be happy with either phone. But if you want the latest in Android then the Nexus is worth the wait, IMHO

The average user will be happy with any of the 3. The (and I'm going to be shot for this) only real advantages to the Nexus is timely OS updates and ICS. The hardware is not enough better for an average consumer (read: anyone who hasn't posted more than 10 times on a phone forum) to tell the difference between any of the 3 in 99.9% of cases. It is only the elite of phone nerds (me included obviously) that will be able to discern the differences.

It is tuff to say. But the average user and the average geek will need time to get use to the new OS (ICS) on the device.

I don't give a crap about Mr Camping! Or sympathize with his followers. And again, these sort of wild generalizations and comparisons have no bearing in this discussion. Self-serving false prophet!? Give me a break and drop the melodrama. You want to use these wild generalization? Then what are we? Who are we in a Harold Camping crusade scenario where all of these "sources" are our Camping?! How does that make you feel? Not so great when the shoe is on the other foot sir, eh?

Since when did the internet become a nice warm fuzzy place when you interacted with complete strangers in a public manner!? To that concern I say deal with it however you like. But deal with it. P3 doesn't hurt my touchy feelies like it does you folks I guess. Sorry, I've got bigger issues of my own to deal with in the real world.

We had a good thing going in here and I feel like tonight I'm very much to blame if theres any down trend in the morale and overall outlook in the thread. So if I offended anyone or pissed ya off I apologize. I feel some of this needed to be said though.

I would expect Google to be careful with the NEXUS name and nail that down in the contract, so I would be surprised to find that Verizon could just rename the device without breaking the contract.

I do think the camera will be noticeably better than what any of the other Android devices has to offer as far as features and speed. I feel like that would be important to even the casual phone user that wants a smartphone.

Well the camera stills look good but video is horrible unless it's a software issue it looks way way way to shaky/wobbly

Hmm, maybe I found the name for my GNex when (not if) it comes.

The speed and lock screen access is what I'm most excited about in the camera. All too many times I have found myself need to whip out my phone to get a picture, and with the Thunderbolt, by the time I take the picture it's been 10 seconds and it's gone. lol

That's what I was going for! Thank you!
Mine is gonna be named Nyxie. But I'm still going to hug her, and per her and squeeze her.......will try not to drool much though since we don't have the splash proof coating.

Kid, I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other, and I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe that there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. 'Cause no mystical energy field controls my destiny. It's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

I understand the rules of the thread and all but honestly all the football talk and video game talk is really grinding my nerves. Not that I don't like football or video games but seriously it's just a bit much here.

Slightly off topic or jokingly sliding off topic yet remaining in the realm of the topic is fine. Even going off topic for a minute to add a little levity is fine and much appreciated. Having a post by post nfl analysis is just way too much. Please keep it to a minimum I implore you.

Hate to be a buzzkill and I'm not usually that guy but I had to say something. I apologize in advance if I offended anyone.

It is only the elite of phone nerds (me included obviously) that will be able to discern the differences.
Only the nexus having NFC is a big deal for me.

I'm not sure if this is the place to do this, but I could use all of your help with a remix competition I entered.
Makree & Edvards Grieze - Feel The Music (Megaphonix Remix) by Megaphonix on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free
Just listening to it is all I ask. You don't need to vote, like, etc. just listen to it. Technically you don't even have to listen if it's not your type of music.
I put a lot of work into this remix so it would really mean a lot to me if I won as a 15 year old

Anyways, now that my shameless self-advertising is over... wait I don't have anything else to say :/

I'm switching from AT&T, so yes I will be a new customer. This is also why I'm on a time limit with the Nexus release because I can not afford to pass up the 4gb data plans. If you click more info on the double data from amazon wireless, they actually state the end date of the double data promo is 11/30. Looks like I will be buying something by that date, Nexus or not. Problem is if I wait till the 30th for a nexus that probably won't come, I may miss this 0.01 deal on the Razr/Rezound. Damn you Verizon!!! Can't.... make....a .......... decision. Some one help me before I go insane lol.

The Rezound is also a penny for new customers at Amazon. I may really have to pull the trigger on that, as much as I have been following the Galaxy Nexus and would love to have one.

If I were you I would count on the Nexus coming before the end of November, because from what I can tell that seems like the most likely situation right now.

Interesting article on browsing benchmarks

Galaxy Nexus outdoes iPhone in browsing, but not graphics | Crave - CNET

I'm starting to think the reason the IP4 and SGN score so high in this department is due to the lack of flash support

Those are really good deals. But I came to a decision several years ago that I will never again compromise to save a "few" bucks. No more sitting in the last row at concerts for example. The only way I don't hold out for this device is if it turns out to be a buggy epic failure. I'll wait til next year if need be.
