    I can't wait for my dream device the Motorola Nexus. Been praying for this for two years. All Motorola hardware and nothing but pure Android software with no skin or bloat, well minimal bloat if on verizon. I hope when Google makes the next batch of Nexus they'll include cdma devices. I read that they will give 5 companies the Nexus brand project, we have to assume Motorola is one of them.
    Have they announced the other 4 companies for the Nexus builds? I assume Moto, HTC, and samsung are in the top three.
    If they can put an actual screen on it and fix the design I'm all for it!

    And not create an oddly balanced design like the Razr...and find a high end screen to put on it..and not use any Moto software, etc, etc. They always fall short somehow, but at least they use good radios.

    I concur.
    I don't Wi-Fi very often but when I do, I have not found any problem with finding, keeping and using the signal.
    Normal Sprint 3G, but I am used to it.
    Looking forward to the 4G LTE which will be on soon.
    Vanilla ICS, no bloat, top of the list for updates.
    Best phone I ever had.
    Just my $.02

    I have never thought the razr looked good. The corners freak me out, sort of like ye olde pine coffins.

    And the screen is rubbish, relatively speaking.

    But yeah, they have signal and massive batteries...

    Try OfficeSuite 6 or QuickOffice, which Google just acquired. I use all of these but dislike Documents to Go. Amazon appstore frequently discounts OfficeSuite 6 - I use it the most, especially for my professional office
    no App - Android or otherwise - can fully replace true Excel and Word on the desktop for me at the moment. i need password/encryption support, advanced formulas support, and web query support. not to mention - keeping all of the formatting intact.

    an official full featured "Microsoft Office for Android" App Suite would be nice but i'm not sure we'll ever see it. Microsoft may feel it is against their best interest. but i'd probably pay up to $50 for it.

    Thanks for the prop.

    A few more:

    If he were to punch you in the face, you'd have to fight off the urge to thank him.

    Sharks have a week dedicated to him.

    His personality is so magnetic, he is unable to carry credit cards.

    Well I just went out and got the Nexus this past Saturday. I'm just not waiting anymore. The phone is awesome! I know theres going to be rumored several new Nexus devices coming this fall. I may just pick those up too or just stick with this one. All in all I do not regret my purchase.

    the OG EVO was a great, revolutionary phone for its time and it still holds up well today but IMO the G-Nex blows it away. my OG EVO sits in a drawer in case i need a backup phone. every once in a while i'll play with it but it feels really cramped, constricted, and dated compared to the G-Nex because of the smaller display, fixed capacitive buttons, Sense skin, and bloat.

    Yeah, I agree. I would also pay a good price for it, since I use it alot for what I do. But I won't leave Android any time soon, having come to it from Windows 6.5 (HTC Touchpro 2). I love my GNex!!

    Here's another really bad problem. Many people have a "one-way calling" problem where suddenly the person on the other end can't hear you talk anymore. The 4.0.4 update didn't fix and it's been going on since day 1.

    Issue 24019: Galaxy Nexus mutes mid-call

    Otherwise it's a great Android device, but it's not much of a "phone". Not everybody seems to have this problem, but for those who do, even replacing the phone doesn't fix the problem. It seems to be related to where you use the phone.

    i wouldn't be surprised if this "problem" is user error. like people hitting the MUTE button by accident while on the call and not realizing it. kind of like hitting the gas pedal instead of the brakes on a new Lexus and then blaming the car.

    Lmao are you serious? They may halt sales but to rid the Nexus brand altogether? That will never happen. Take a deep breath and relax. This is Google we are talking about.

    You can look at the phone when it gets into this state and it isn't muted. Also, often, the person at the other end can hear garbled stutters of sound coming from the phone...suggesting that a radio or microphone problem is to blame. Tons of people have had this problem and even the Jelly Bean update that some are downloading and installing doesn't fix it.

    User error. Fingers covering microphone. You're holding it wrong.

    After winning an EVO 4G LTE & using it for about a week or so I can't wait to get back to my Nexus, especially now that JB is here. I'm sticking with the NEXUS brand from here on out as well. Depending on the screen, I would probably choose between Motorola or HTC if availible. I really like Samsung but man their radios are garbage compared to the others.

    Moto + Stock Android just reminds me of a Droid to be honest. I don't have my hopes up for a sexy beast. Too in love with curved glass as it is.

    I've had lots of Android phones and the iPhones Gnex is my favorite by far. I do have the unlocked GSM version and you can use that on any GSM carrier without having to lock yourself into a contract.

    I only buy the unlocked Nexus phones, now. First to get updates. No contract. Etc.

    I get where you're coming from. But Sprint has unlimited and I just can't see myself leaving anytime soon. I'm a power user lol. If Sprint gets rid of that...then yeah I'm going GSM unlocked. Hell, I may still go that route once the new Nexus comes this fall. A new Nexus at a good price on the play store.....hard to pass up this time around.

    I'm all-in on the next Nexus phone. Sick and tired of laggy updates from Sprint and the OEMs. Gotta have a better camera than the current one though. I agree that a Moto Nexus would be awesome as you'd hafta imagine support from both the carrier and manufacturer would be pristine.

    Sold my evo 4g lte and got a galaxy nexus. The cameras not as good but other than that I really like it. I have my free extended battery from Sprint arriving tomorrow so hopefully that helps with the poor battery life.

    I was worried about poor reception and crappy radios but so far they're not too bad. Definitely not as strong a signal as the ltevo.

    Most of all, no Sense! Love stock android and while I could have loaded cm10 on the ltevo it is buggy and will always lag behind cm10 for nexus devices.
