    I didn't mean it in a bad way at all - if anything its good cause it makes us (or maybe just me) actually stop to read it. Sometimes I just scroll through and speed read if I'm behind or trying to do a hit and run catch up. I don't want it to be changed. Sorry for making you doubt what you were doing.

    And honestly, no bad feelings at all. It's kind of fun to know someone can still stop me in my tracks.

    Transformer Prime on the 9th you say? Verizon better ship the SGN on the 8th or else they have failed Google big time.

    Also my OG Droid just got updated from Motorola - security updates. It's my dad's old OG Droid (mine broke) so I don't want to root his device so its been stock since he gave it to me when mine died.

    Hmm, is it releasing with ICS? Almost makes you wonder, coordinated release of first ICS tab and first ICS phone in the US?

    I have never in my life seen such blatant begging for thanks.

    Tap thanks if you want the Nexus.

    I think that ship has sailed. Any day in November is highly unlikely at this point.

    Hope everything's okay.

    And it's probably for the best. If we had a release date for you, you'd probably bust your stitches. :p

    LOL, I am doing well. I have another one in a week, so hopefully when I come out of that one Verizon would have released our phones. My X is boring to look at nowadays.

    I went to a Verizon store today and was at the register with a Rezound, literally reaching for my credit card before changing my mind.

    My Eris chose to go into another reboot fit this morning and I decided I had enough of this F'ing phone. I spent all day [at work :cool:] re-reading reviews for the Razr/Rezound/Nexus and honestly I am beginning to lose a little bit of excitement for the Nexus. The sound issues, the questionable Samsung GPS/radio, the lack of SD card slot... the phone isn't perfect. ICS is a big selling point but the Razr/Rezound will have it eventually, and the fact I can still get new roms for my 2yr old Eris leaves me with a lot of faith in the dev community.

    I prefer S-Amoled screens to the S-LCD and even though the Rezound's screen is incredibly sharp, to my perception the Razr had more vibrant colors. However the removable battery is a must so that put me towards the Rezound.

    FWIW, I did run the browser benchmark on the Rezound (it's not on the chart in the first post) and it scored a 57823. I also ran the benchmark on the Razr and it scored significantly lower then that chart at about 67k, so I would bet a non-display model would fare better. While browsing on the Rezound, it did lose internet connectivity for about a minute even though the 3G appeared to be passing data around.

    I asked the sales associate if I could hold them without the security locks attached to their back because it makes it impossible to truly gauge how it feels in my hand. She brought me out one of each phone to hold and the width of the Razr did make it feel awkward to hold. The Rezound was only a little wider then my Eris but noticeably longer which wasn't really an issue. I'd say I have average to slightly above average size hands (giggity).

    The sales associate brought me to the register with the Rezound and I started having seconds thoughts. If I bought it, there would be 2 possible outcomes:
    1. I would have to pay the $35 restocking fee to 'borrow' a phone for (hopefully at most) 2 weeks because the Nexus will come out and be every bit as spectacular as we all originally thought, or​
    2. The Nexus falls short and I end up keeping the Rezound that I paid $300 in store for, that I could find online for $220 easily.​
    Also influencing this decision was when the saleswoman brought out 3 cases for me to "pick from" without mentioning they cost extra (I'm no rube). When I said no thanks, she then went on to threaten that if there was any scratches to the phone I would have to pay $300 for any warranty issues that would require replacing it.

    I also had to educate her on the return policy. She said 14 days, I said no actually I have till Jan. 15, she said I was wrong, then we looked it up and I was right. Between that and the misinformation I heard the sales people giving perspective customers I felt like I should get a name tag and start working there.

    When I got home, I entertained (bored) my girlfriend with this story. Her response was "Just go watch that Hitler video again, that always cheers you up"... and I just want to thank this forum for giving me a place in my life where someone can say that phrase and it not be the terrible thing it sounds like.

    The weird part? She hasn't seen the Hitler/Gnex video...

    Well I hope my rambling gave those of you bored at work like I was something to read. If not,

    TL;DR version: Verizon sales people are idiots, and if your considering getting a phone now and don't care about the double data promotion, you may as well just wait for the Nexus to be released even if you end up getting something else.

    DON'T TAP THANKS if you think these thinly veiled thank padding schemes are fooling anyone.:D
