I just hope it's better than when HTC announced the "Bliss!" :'(

Here's to hoping they have something up their sleeve we don't know about. :D

Gnex or Razr or Rezound?? Decisions Decisions

I'd rather go with the rezound or the razr imo, over those 2 i'd pick the razr because super amoled + qhd= win! but Damn, that rezound has 720p resolution on a 4.3 inch display, that has got to be great! plus it has htc sense which is a great android overlay. As for the nexus, it has 720p but it's divided onto a 4.65 inch display, plus the deal-breaker(imo) it's pentile...

Also, as for ICS, the nexus will obviously get it first, but razr will most likely get it before the rezound. And i'm not totally sure, but I think the razr and the nexus's 1200mhz TI OMAP processor will be faster than the 1500 mhz snapdragon the rezound uses.

Higher resolution PenTile has the same visual quality as lower resolution RGB SAMOLEDs, so it should not be a deal breaker at all. The Razr has an overclocked TI CPU, while the Nexus has a better (but downclocked) TI CPU, which means you'll be able to easily overclock the Nexus much faster than either phones. Though in all practicality, majority of users will find the Snapdragon more than fast enough. The Razr is good if you're not going to load a custom ROM or need an extra battery. I'm going with the Nexus also because it's a Samsung and they just hired a lot of good programmers such as the main guys behind CyanogenMod.

Yeah, same visual quality as lower resolution samoleds, like wvga resolution on a same size screen, razr has a smaller 4.3 inch screen(which imo is the perfect size) and its qhd. I know the nexus processor is better as its the newer ti omap, and I also know that the snapdragon should have more than enough power, but as most people(everyone) agree, more power is better, otherwise no one would care about processor speed...

Also, the razr will most likely have the longest lasting battery because Motorola has a history with that, thing is you cant get a bigger one, so the other phones are capable of better battery, anyways stated my opinions, and some true facts, and I'd go with the razr, and btw, hasn't the razr already been rooted?

Rooted yes, but that is just superuser access. The bootloader is still locked and encrypted, which prevents anyone from loading custom ROMs. Razr might be good for you and that's fine, I'm not saying that you should change your mind since to each their own, but for me, I'd rather have an extra battery.

It seems to be taking forever to get in and started. Thought the event was supposed to start at 3pm est/12pm pst?
