    Razr. I think the new Blur is less irritating while HTC Sense, while nice, is a completely different UI.

    I was reading the article about NetFlix deciding to give support for the CryanogenMod. In the article, they also mentioned that Motorola was also going to start unlocking the boot loader. Google for the link. As always though, it's just a rumor until someone posts a link to Motorola themselves saying it.
    Yes its true, Motorola said the RAZR is the first of their phones to use their lockable/unlockable bootloader solution. Verizon's version doesn't support it though -- thanks to VZ themselves.

    The Rezound. I can't stand Moto and will not buy another Moto product again. I also happen to like Sense.

    If its the first phone how do you know Verizon won't support it?

    Reason I ask is I have a Xoom 3g/4g through vzw and it has a lockable/unlockable boot loader. Fairly easy to use via adb.

    If the Razr had a replacable battery I'd get that before the Nexus. But it doesn't so its my second choice...

    Possible good news here if you've been eyeing the Motorola RAZR, and live outside the U.S. -- Motorola has confirmed to the folks at Ausdroid that the RAZR will be the first Motorola phone to offer a bootloader unlock solution. This comes with a "gotcha" though -- carriers have the option to have this removed from the phone's firmware, and Verizon has opted to have it taken out. I'll give you a moment to curse softly under your breath.

    We shouldn't be surprised at Verizon's decision -- the phone is more secure with a secure bootloader. That point can't be argued. If we stop and think for a minute though, this means that phones that are almost identical to the Droid RAZR will have factory code from Motorola to unlock the bootloader, ripe for the picking. Developers have a new avenue to explore, and if you were willing to unlock your bootloader in the first place, you shouldn't balk at a method found by hackers to get it done. We'd like to see both a secure and unlockable option offered, but we'll take whatever we can get. Let's keep our fingers crossed that an unlockable version of the RAZR falls into the right hands -- I think it will.

    I would say the razr for 2 reasons I hate sense with a passion and 2 the razr seems to be built to last.

    To be honest though I wont be happy with any phone other than the gnex.

    Dernt! I really like Motorola products too. But it will never have a removable battery, it will never have on screen buttons, and a locked bootloader....three strikes for me. I wonder if the will revise it and make one without the buttons when ICS comes stock on all phones...

    Gorilla glass, steel and Kevlar body, SD slot, HDMI port, plus motorolas radio....so much going for it too....

    Yep, that locked bootloader is for sure built to last.

    Definitely the Vigor. It was my front runner until I actually saw ICS and the Nexus, and now I cant wait to get my hands on one!

    My backup would really be to wait to see if the Droid 4 is real. I really want a sliding 4g phone with great specs

    Probably Rezound for me, but definitely getting the Nexus

    I think the only way I wont be getting the gnex is if its only available in 16gb. If that's the case and Motorola has decided to partition the SD card to SD-EXT then its the Rezound for me.

    My second choice would be the Razr. I like the looks of it better than the Rezound/Vigor and, it has some nice accessories.

    If the Gnex only comes in 16GB version I will consider the Rezound for second choice. The Razr is a really nice looking device but the non-removable battery really bothers me. My next phone needs to last 2 years and I am wondering if the battery in the Razr will last that long.

    I would actually like to see the 3 phones in person and in action before making a final decision.

    I would either just stick with my Bolt or upgrade to the Rezound if the reviews came back positive.
