Frankly I like the construction of my Razr. With the gorilla glass front and the nice kevlar back that damn thing is solid.

For me, the nexus one had the best feel to it out of all the nexus phones so far. And it was sexy:



I really wish HTC gets another go at it in the future.
Currently I am using the galaxy nexus and I like it but when I dig out my non working nexus one and hold them both in my hands, the plasticy feeling and looks of the galaxy doesn't hold up to the first iteration of the nexus brand.

I totally agree. I think that the current state of LTE services in this country are absolutely appalling. They are simply a way to gouge consumers over and over.

If you've tried LTE, you wouldn't be saying that.
I cannot go back to HSPA; LTE is light years ahead of HSPA and simply can't pickup any device that lacks LTE support.
It's like going from dialup to high speed internet, heck the speeds I get on LTE are nearly as fast as my home internet which hits 9MB/sec.

I've said this once and I will say it again: any tablet / phone without a metallic or rubberized back / sides is DOA for me.
Hmm? It's Gorilla Glass 2 front and back with rubber edges from everything I've read.

I saw the Nexus 10 was readily in stock all day today, but I have no use for another "dumb" tablet. I need a full x86 tablet!

I was trying to get the Nexus 4 but never was able to. Saw the 8GB 3 times but whenever I clicked "Add to cart" it would give some error. Never saw the 16GB in stock. Anyone have any luck?

Most people didn't get the nexus 4 due to a serious CF with the play store check out and seemingly extremely limited stock. Most places sold out in under 45 minutes. Which is quite honestly unacceptable. Not that i'm bitter or anything.

Yeah I know, I had pre-ordered the Nexus 7 too when it launched and was still rather pissed off with the Google Play Store experience. It shipped AFTER it was available in stores which didn't seem quite right to me.
