    After 6 days of spotty (at best) 3g and 4g coverage on the Galaxy Nexus, I returned it for a Rezound yesterday. I've barely had time to use it in the less than 24 hours I've had it, but it gets 3g and 4g everywhere that the Nexus did not get it but should have had it. The little I've used the camera on the Rezound has proven it is better, it's not even close. The only thing the Nexus had on it was shutter speed, which does you little good if the Auto Focus can't keep up. Anyway, I'll have some more comparisons when I have more time with the Rezound.

    Stuff like this makes me feel a lot better about going with the Rezound.

    I do still have some residual jealousy over SuperAMOLED...but there was no option for a true 720p Super AMOLED screen (I dont want Pentile...that ruins it for me).

    I am about to make the same switch. I really want to like the Gnex, but just can't get past the lack of screen visibility at lower brightness levels. In my opinion, the auto brightness feature is worthless on the Gnex, it is way too dim. This is aggravated by the fact that the screen is very grey (instead of white) at those dim settings.

    I expected to maybe notice a performance advantage over a sense device, but I truthfully haven't noticed anything.

    I like the thinness and weight of the Gnex, and overall I like Ics, however, they're not enough to accept the screen, especially when you compare it to the bright, beautiful screen of the Rezound.

    God, me too. I am such a huge fan of the Galaxy S2 phones (and the original Galaxy as well). But it is like Samsung went out of their way to make it as unappealing as possible. They yanked SD expansion and polluted the display with pentile tech. It doesnt have the Gorilla Glass that is in the "real" Galaxy S2s either.

    Frankly, I would rather have any of the stock Galaxy S2 phones than the Nexus. And that is really sad.

    If you are on Verizon and want a Galaxy S2 though, the Nexus is as close as you are going to get. I think they are the only major carrier that doesnt offer a stock Galaxy S2.

    Just out curiousity, did you watch the video on how the glass used on the GN was manufactured? And some of the scratching & abuse they subject it to in testing. It doesn't have to say "Gorilla", in order to be tough. Granted, it's not a Corning product but that crap looked durable as anything else, to say the least.

    Of the "big 3" on Verizon right now - Rezound, Nexus, Razr - my choice would be the Rezound (although I don't have a choice at the moment...bummer). I had a chance to play with all 3 the other day, although I really like the form factor of the Razr and Nexus, they both have things about them that are turn offs for me.

    It's definitely a relative unknown compared to the GN and Razr. I guess when the goods speak for themselves, they don't need a ton of hype.

    Sadly I'm coming to the same conclusion. I love the GN's crisp & clean ICS OS and can even tolerate 60-70% battery use devoted to the screen but the Galaxy Nexus' camera/video performance is so inconsistent. But I promised myself I'd give the Galaxy Nexus at least a week's test-run.

    60-70% on the GN, the display on my Rezound eats up 90% of my battery usage.

    Turn your screen down, I'm at 55% after 14 hours, leaving the screen on auto.

    I rarely use the brightness settings at all. I usually have it locked in at 0%. Occasionally, 25%, for vids but that's a minimal factor in my overall usage.

    Here's a clue to what may be on the front of the Galaxy Nexus

    Sure looks like a Samsung Corning joint venture to me.

    The Rezound speaks for itself

    Its too bad though that alot more people haven't caught on, its really a good phone. But people flock to everything that is hyped up due to the way they are advertised. I have to admit, when I first saw the commercial for the Rezound and didn't know anything about the phone I thought I didn't want to trade out my TB because it only focused about Beats Audio but I decided to do more research and glad that I did. People complain that this phone is too big but yet I think the Nexus and the Razr are too wide, I guess its a matter of taste. I also hate the fact that the memory can't be expanded on the other 2 phones. @ least the battery can be switched on the Nexus.

    I found the GN to big for one hand operation, but I have small hands. Could barely reach the back key.
    It just felt awkward
