    Damn, gotta wait for another 5 months until my contract runs out. This is a good alternative to the Galaxy S II that Verizon won't be carrying.

    Yeah, I think they knew they were getting this, and thus they skipped getting a galaxy S II variant.

    Only thing better over the razr is the screen. Its .3" larger, but the buttons use up some of the screen realestate. Razr has an 8m camera, as opposed to the Nexus 5m. the nexus deosnt have a hot swapable SD card, and the razr has faster speeds in tests. To add, many reviews have reported the Nexus feels "cheap". My 0.02 on why I chose the razr.

    Same here. I hate all that bloatware crap they put on phones. And all those "skins" too. motoblur, htc sense UI. Lame. Give me factory android, updates fast as hell and good hardware.

    As for the camera, it may only be 5 mp, but it has ZERO shutter lag. You press the button, and it instantly takes the pic. No waiting. I love that.

    I have a real camera if I need to take a picture at high resolution.

    Ditching the bloat and HTC skin is one of the reasons I rooted my DINC.

    Nexus has one major advantage that IMHO trumps the razr. It is Pure google, no motoblur or any other manufacturer added crap and updates are supposed to roll directly from google.
