    I'm trying to decide which phone to get next, looking at the high end there only seem's to be two choices at the moment, the Motorola RAZR or the Galaxy Nexus.

    Just between these two I think I've settled on a RAZR, mainly because of the build quality. Of the two android phones I've had previously, a Motorola Milestone & Galaxy S, I really preferred the metal feel of the Milestone, to the plasticy Galaxy S.

    But I'm wondering are there no other phones up there with the RAZR and Galaxy Nexus? nothing from HTC competing? Anything coming soon?

    Hardware wise, talking of raw computing power, Sensation XE is better than tha RAZR as far as I know.

    Hmm it does look quite good yeah, as well as the EVO 3D even. They're both a bit cheaper too.

    +1 for HTC.
    It all came down to the look & feel for me.
    I liked the feel of the Sensation, & the finish were both great IMO.
    The screen also helped me make my decision.
    I like my devices to feel, solid/sturdy, I don't really like feeling if I drop my phone, the plastic is going to break into pieces.

    So, keanoo, sounds like you're on Verizon?

    In that case, the HTC Rezound is getting rave reviews by its owners. It's similar to the Sensation XE, except also includes 720p HD screen.

    BTW - the debates over which phone breaks how - let's just drop that, thanks.

    No I'm in England, which is a shame because the Rezound does look great but it's not available here at all.

    It looks like I will go for the RAZR, which is getting great reviews also it seems.
