    How is doing? Durability,how do carry it? What phone did you come from and how does it compare?
    I came from the evo and loved it other than crap that always got under the screen. Loved the sense UI but always wanted a nexus but tmo sucks in my area.
    I carry my nexus in a active x case with a zagg screen guard. No problems for now except for a little creak of the battery door, which normally wouldn't bother me but its right where I hold it when I type in landscape. A strategicly placed piece of electrical tape solved it.

    All in all this is the best deivice I have ever owned. For once I don't see myself looking for the next best thing. And the odd thing is that I got a nexus for the customization but have no desire to change it.
    Let's hear your thoughts and opinions on it.

    So far my Nexus has been a awesome phone.No problem whatssoever except fot the pic gallery delay that was really annoying.Had to use another pic gallery app to make it work smoothly.I would still like to try out the Evo 3D though.

    I don't know why but I really have no interest in 3D. Now a 3D HD TV would be great.

    Yeah the pure Google the best part. The only thing I wish they did different on the this nexus s is a matte surface. Gloss black is great when its clean.

    I came from an EVO 4G and I find the Nexus to be a huge upgrade. I keep mine in an active x with a steinheil screen protector. I'm in construction, so I have to keep it armored. I find that the Nexus feels more solidly built than my EVO. I would like a soft touch battery door, but other than that, its solid. EVO's have a ton of creeks and hardware problems, like the screen lifting, light bleed, and the plastic ring around the screen cracking everywhere. The Nexus doesn't seem to have this issues to me.

    I tried out the 3d before buying the Nexus. It didn't impress me, and as of right now, the Nexus is just as fast in everyday tasks, and puts up benchmark scores that are comparable to the dual cores. I don't think I'll be looking at a new phone until the next Nexus comes out.

    I have yet to see a nexus live in person. I heard it was fantastic.

    The difference between the Nexus and the EVO is about as big as the difference between the EVO and the Hero.

    As far as I'm concerned. I've used the Nexus and the 3d side by side, and in every day tasks they are the same speed. The Nexus flies

    I love my seidioonline active case. I just wonder why manufacturers insist on making devices gloss back. I loved when I was able to get the silver PSP.

    Same here. I really love my nexus! Came from a Pre, this is pretty much the form factor I've been wanting since less than a year after I had the Pre.

    I've had mine for a couple of months. It's my first smart phone so the battery life disappoints me but overall I'm not sure it could be much better.

    I do have a nice cushy case that I bought via Android Central and I have a screen protector on the way.

    I wish it did have expandable memory but that's my only niggle.

    Much, much better than the TB.

    I still swear I could visibly see the battery indicator decrease on the TB.

    Sprint's coverage has been much better for me. Somewhat a surprise for other folks, I guess.

    To anyone that might be looking to squeak out some extra battery life, make sure you're logged out of Latitude. Even if you've never used it before.

    Its holding up ok but collecting a lot of dust around the bezel of the screen. I've yet to drop it naked but I don't find it as sturdy as my old Droid. Say what you want about moto but those suckers can take a hit like a champ.

    Is the dust under the screen?

    My phone is doing fine. I had to replace it because I had a defect on the phone but the replacement is brand new and 100% fine.

    I replaced the phone back on May 30th and had my first wifi drop issue from it last night however it was not the phone's fault. My router doesn't have a REALLY strong signal and all my wifi-enabled devices (iPod touch 4th Gen, LG Optimus V, Windows laptop, PSP, and DSi) all have trouble in the spot where I lost it at.

    Yeah, Motorolas are tanks. Sprint customers are going to realize when the Photon comes out. They'll be more well built than the EVO's
