Default Upgrade Available, Need Help!

Hey guys, first off let me remind everyone that I WILL be keeping my Revo. However, I am available for my upgrade as of right now and I'm having trouble picking between some phones. Please make your choice by voting in poll that has been posted up there ^^^^


Galaxy Nexus:

I can get this phone through Wirefly for only $229.

Razr: $149 through bestbuy

*Spectrum: $129 through wirefly

Razr Maxx: $229

Rezound: $179

I kind of don't want the Rezound because I don't want to go from a 4.3in. screen to a 4in.

I didn't really want to spend over $200 (which only leaves the Razr and Rezound)

I just want to know everyone's input. As you can see, my motivation behind my choices is that these phones either have, or will have ICS. I put the Spectrum on there simply because believe it or not, I could barely find any bad reviews for it on Verizons site (other than the obvious complaints about battery life). Other than battery life there were really no complaints about it but I really don't want to give LG another chance to screw me over with their support, or lack thereof.

Help me choose lol!!! I'll be buying my new phone tomorrow whichever one I get so please if you see this post, reply to it and help me out.

Thanks guys!

Nexus. Honestly it's the combination of 2 cell phone titans. I am sure they have a good community. The moto, well that is a powerhouse to itself, moto has been doing it longer than anyone. The RAZR was one of the best selling phones and you know moto don't mess around when it comes to their flag ship phones. That said Nexus is one of the most recognizable phone names ever and generally rightly so.

I'm torn between the razr maxx or the nexus. If i go with what i know, id choose the razr. Before the revo, ive always gone with Motorola (would have this time too, but the bionic wasnt out yet and i wanted to snag the unlimited plan before big red canned it). Never owned a samsung phone before so id be a little nervous in buying the nexus (but thats just me).
But then i look at the great experience ive had with stock android on my xoom.
If i had to choose right now, i think i would take a chance on the nexus just so i could relive the stock experience

I considered it but honestly it's pretty much outdated already.

The fact that the moto RAZR is scheduled to get ICS, I would jump on that one. it feels so much smoother than the nexus IMO

Id go with the maxx. Pretty much an upgraded razrr. The nexuss however does have a big community, but so do all the other phones. The biggest selling point on the rezound is the headphones that come with it.

I would roll in this order.
  1. Nexus - ICS and lots of dev
  2. Rezound - Getting ICS and tons of dev
  3. Razr Maxx - Getting ICS and killer battery tons of dev
  4. Razr - Getting ICS tons of dev, battery life on par with revo.
