Why not get the Galaxy Nexus for the same price in the same size case but with the full 4.65" HD screen?

Why not get the one that will always be updated first?

This is a great phone that will make a lot of people happy. I won't be getting it for the same reason I didn't get any iPhones, I can't rely on a phone with no removable battery. And one other thing thing...

Galaxy Nexus.

My girlfriend got hers from FedEx earlier today to replace her old Blackberry. It's very speedy and very pretty. I'm impressed.

Galaxy nexus doesnt have much on this phone, in fact this phone has more on the nexus. I want this soo bad but really wanna wait until ive held both

That's good that you are going to compare them before your final decision. I checked out the Razr at the Verizon store near my house. It's very nice, just not for me for both the hardware and software (blur).

These phones are just like anything else you buy. Nothing has everything you want all in one package. You want Kevlar on a 7mm thick Samsung or Ice Cream, Face unlock and NFC on the Razr?

They do this to us to keep competition in the market place which also helps keep prices in check (somewhat that is).

When someone says that this or that phone is the best, it solely depends on which features are more important to the user. Nothing more, nothing less.

Just hope for a better, more refined and reliable group of phones this time around and for me any of them will be great because they all do so much more than any of us could have foreseen 10 years ago.

Have a Coke and a smile! Or a Pepsi. You know what I mean?

Don't worry, be Happy:)

For those getting the GN... What kind of job do you have that you are ok with paying $200 more for a superphone?

The Droid dev community is amazing and there has not been a Droid yet that hasn't gotten a ROM with the latest Android.

My guess is it will be $50 more for the GN since I am an existing customer and can't get that new customer discount. If it is $200 more, that's fine. I will keep it for at least 20 months as I usually do with my phones. $200 is less than my monthly bill since we have four lines on my family plan so an extra $200 Or $300 for one month won't kill me. To answer your question, I am a Systems Engineer.

I have a job in which I make enough money to do whatever I want. For example, I can switch phones and carriers monthly and it doesn't hurt my checkbook. I think it's rude you even ask!

o $30,000 - $49,999
o $50,000 - $69,999
o $70,000 - $99,999

Im not rich by far but paying $300 for a phone or even $650 off of contract for this phone is a great value ...I use this 20 times more then I do my laptop and that thing cost me a bit more ...don't be cheap people this kind of tech is priced right for most people on this site if u think that its too expensive then ur a moron and need to have a feature phone like the envy or something ...stick to that or go buy a jitterbug if they still have thoose lol me ill be happy with my Gnex soon ...its just killing me to know the launch date

I totally would have bought it if the 111.11 price was for upgrade customers too. For $300, I'll just wait for the Nexus.

Any review on a fixed battery phone should include battery life. (especially since this is a mega-problem with all of these super phones)

If I brought a Bionic I would be very upset, however those that buy the Razr in a couple of months will probably regret it as well as I am sure Motorola will drop another new beast. That is why I am getting the Nexus. I know I will have the best software and in a year can upgrade to the next Nexus. Bye bye envy.

Wife got hers yesterday. Had activation issues just like the Bionic. Turns out you have to turn off 4G to get it going. Nice phone but I'm going to check out the Rezound and Nexus before making a decision.

Disappointed it is not Global ready. I really need a phone that will work outside the U.S. (I have a Droid Pro and when I travel, I buy a local SIM card)

Hoping the Nexus or Rezound is global ready...

For most users, that should be plenty.
I have a little over 200 apps installed on my Android phone,
and I'm only using about 475 MB of space.
Quite a few users will have far less apps installed.
