    Same here. The larger the phone, the better in my eyes.

    The RAZR looks like a sweet phone, so I'm sure you would love it, but are you talking about thickness? Because the Galaxy Nexus isn't going to be noticeably longer or wider than the RAZR.

    The dimensions. This Nexus is too big. Really. I love this phone, but I can't go round with something bigger than my TV remote.

    It's pretty much the same size as a Droid X or a GS2.

    The only deal breaker for me...you couldn't use it to make phone calls.

    I find it amusing that of all the specs, features, gimmicks, cameras, video. Voice quality/reception seems to be neglected a little.

    After all it is a phone. And isn't that why they came up with tablets.

    After just learning that Gorilla Glass is on the Galaxy Nexus, there are no longer any deal breakers for me.
    Yea, I'm still rockin' a Gnex. The signal strength/quality sucks, but hey, it's not two years old yet.

That is my biggest draw to the phone; I really want the plain Android experience, without the crap from manufacturers and carriers. Being that it's a Nexus phone, it *should* be free from these things, but rumors have bounced around about TouchWiz possibly being out on the device, and stuff, so...
    Definitely have to agree. That's the very essence of a Nexus device. Verizon has never had one and the closest it came was the original Moto Droid.

    For me the processor, screen, battery, SD card are all secondary and I'm sure they will be on par with what the newest high-end VZW phones have to offer. However, if VZW adds bloat and locks the bootloader or Samsung adds Touchwiz and all updates come from them, not Google, it will be a Nexus in name only.

    If the updates come from Google, I understand that bugs may exist, but I have confidence that Google will diagnose the problem and correct it expeditiously.

    I just don't have the same degree of confidence in any manufacturer when it comes to diagnosing and correcting bugs, especially since the manufacturer's own skin may be partially to blame.

    After spending much of my time in the Moto DX group, I got to read first hand about the issues people had when upgrading from Froyo to Gingerbread. Now, some people had no issues, while it seemed that others were unable to use their phones after the upgrade. At the time, it was enough for me to choose to remain on Froyo (if it ain't broke don't fix it). I'm still on Froyo, but to Moto's credit it sounds like many of the issues are resolved, but they took awhile.

    I may be wearing rose-colored glasses, but somehow I doubt many Nexus owners have refused updates from Google, for fear that they may have a better phone without them. Whether it's realistic or not, I like the idea that the very programmers that designed ICS are probably trouble-shooting for bugs on a Nexus.

    If you're on AT&T, TMobile, or Sprint, you can afford to be more critical of the specs because you know that the the very essence of whatever Nexus you receive will remain pure. Anyone, currently on Verizon doesn't have that luxury and we won't know for sure until it's released.

    Will I change networks, of course not. The network itself is 10 times more important than any device, and Verizon has the best. Please don't take this as arrogance and I know there are exceptions, but at this moment with the 3g/LTE network it has and will continue to grow in the future, it is the best, and even if that was debatable, I just can't give up Unlimited for any capped plan. I know what it's like to exceed 2 GB in a month and I'm not even a power user.

    Verizon may choose to add bloat, skins, and lock the bootloader, but if that happens, I would truly hope that the Mods will change the name of this forum to the 'Fascinate 2' or the 'Sammy say it ain't so' phone. I will upgrade eventually, but will be seriously consider the Razr and may choose to wait it out a little while longer.

    Verizon will be releasing lots of great phones with killer specs, locked bootloaders and enough bloat to give your phone gas for a year, and I may use one and even come to enjoy one of them, but it won't be a Nexus.

    Anyone that's not on Verizon right now can't truly appreciate the excitement of owning a true Nexus and the trepidation and uneasiness we feel at the same time. For now, I am a cautious optimist.

    Yeah, and they're too big. I think someone in google has forgotten the meaning of mobile. Sigh.

    If it does not launch on Verizon..... I am excited and cautious, remember the Nexus One was coming to Veirzon soon, instead we got a bloatware HTC sensed Incredible and everyone said that was close enough. Not for me. I will switch carriers this time if that happens again.

    CNET has recently confirmed with Google that the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update will let users disable any application, even those apps that the manufacturer and carrier preinstall as part of their business deals.
    The ability to shut down unwanted apps also extends to the browser and Gmail

    If it's as cheap feeling as some reviews have indicated, I might have to pass for a RAZR or iPhone.
