0. phoneArena posted on 23 Dec 2011, 04:32

Out of all the national carriers in the US, there’s no kidding that Verizon’s lineup is saturated to the top with some of the industry’s leading devices! Amongst the highly competitive devices, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Motorola DROID RAZR stand out immensely thanks to their specialty refinements, but considering that our appetites are voracious, there can only be one that can be proclaimed as being the best of the best...

Seems like you are married to Razr. Lol.

Even in hardwares, hard to say it's better than Nexus. HD > qHD, OMAP 4460 > OMAP 4430 with no room for OC.

And at the rate Moto is churning out phones every two months, Razr will be quickly obsolete by the time it gets ICS. Nexus will be obsolete in hardware too, but it will receive the latest Androids long after all other current devices stop getting updated.

Nexus = getting constantly random reboot many times with no reasons and patterns and without any solution.

razr= getting the latest ICS with no randomly reboot issue.

nexus, no thnaks. Too much headage.

Actually Razr is the very first phone which has been included a fully implemented lock/unlock bootloader software from Motorola. However, it is Verizon network here in the U.S. which opt. to disable the bootloader unlock option. I don't know why Versizon has opted to do this on their flagship device Razr but not on the Galaxy Nexus. The international version of Razr sold in Australia and other parts of the world all came with the lock/unlock bootloader software . So the enthasiast crowd in other part of the world will now be able to load the ICS custom ROM into their Razr as soon as it becomes available should they so wish rather than have to wait for 2 to 6 months here as other people mentioned. While the razr may be loosing its sales to the Nexus here in the US, It will certainly be able to compete very well with the Nexus if it is priced right
as it has no more restriction from the ICS update anymore.

"I do miss how the Razr worked so much better"

Sounds like the Razr wins to me.

Now with so many user complaints and reports regarding the constantly random reboot issues out of unknown reason for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus after such a short launging period onto the market, I will be surprised to see people still insist on to say that G nexus is still better than the Razr or the Razrmaxx.

This phone cannot even last for 4 hours on original battery! I can't even consider the original battery to be a viable option for use. Perhaps update 4.0.4 can address this issue but highly doubt it

End up I have to to use an extended battery to lengthen the power life of this phone. So far the Qcell extended battery last me through a day which is an acceptable usage for me
