    So according to the various literature, the razr has a screen size of 4.3 inches while the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has 4.65 inches. I have also read that on the SGN not all of the 4.65 screen is used for video. So my question is what is the ACTUAL visible size of the screens for both of these wonderful phones if you are watching say a movie?

    Thoughts?

    For Razr screen will be 4.3" regardless of what you do.

    For GNez you would have to find out whether the bottom buttons are hidden completely when video starts playing. You have to ask that in th eGNex section.

    The gnex buttons are hidden during video, giving you the full 4.65".

    Although the button area is used during video playback I have seen multiple posts indicating that the usable screen area minus the button area is 4.38 inches.

    Gnex screen is 4.65" of usable space while the buttons are on the screen. When the video starts they disappear and you watch the video on the full screen which is 4.72" according to the Gnex thread
