If your looking Android and Verizon go either Galaxy Nexus or Droid Razr

I have was grandfathered in with the unlimited data at verizon. For someone like my roommate or brother who have 2 and 4 gb it might be different.

I would kill for 4g speed or faster 3g speed "sigh" . But living at the grand canyon doesn't provide spectacular wifi for online gaming.

I'm an iPhone fan, but have the Droid X2 for my work phone on verizon. My manager told me about PDANet which allows you to tether your phone. Awesome app.

As a Verizon customer who has never owned a smartphone...

How can I possibly choose between the Droid Razr and the Galaxy Nexus???



Thoughts? Suggestions?

Well better screen on the Nexus and ICS (Android 4.0)

That alone made me wait for the Nexus. I have it and love it. Vikes also has it so you can get his opinion.

I love my nexus. The only thing i don't love is the battery life. I can't do a whole lot of streaming or gaming on it because of the battery life. I love how smooth and fluid ice cream sandwich is. the screen is also amazing.

Through a complicated set of transactions involving gift cards, lunch, and a tank of gas, I ended up with a brand new Samsung Galaxy S2. I'm pretty damned pumped about it. My G2X was nice, but this is just so much better. Really loving the screen and Samsung's overlay is actually pretty good...although I'll probably screw with it at some point.

Wi-Fi is your friend. It uses a lot less battery life if you can lock into a signal.

Also, since Android operates off a pull server it uses more to sync up emails, facebook, etc. I've noticed a lot better battery life since I turned the syncs to operate only on Wi-Fi. My instant emails and facebook updates really aren't that important.

Two more settings that could help are choosing a static background (along with auto-brightness) and turning off the vibration on your home keys (haptic feed back). The display is the biggest user of battery and while you can't prevent the display from working you can at least save some battery with something that isn't interactive. Also, anything that vibrates will use batter as well.

I know those are some minor changes, but anything you can do to improve your battery life is a plus.

The Razr is crap. If you really want the Razr, wait for the Razr Maxx. (2x battery life).

The Galaxy Nexus is superior in every way, though.

So I was thinking of getting an ipad for school. My grad classes have a lot of videos in the powerpoints, and I feel like having an ipad that I can use to skim through my notes and watch the videos on would be helpful.

Here's the thing though, I'm still printing out lecture notes and writing notes on top of them, I'm just used to studying like this, but I know if I don't have an ipad or equivalent I probalby wont look at the videos, bc I try to stay away from the computer when studying and I'd have to go to a laptop to view the vids.

Here's the thing though, do I go ipad or android? And my max budget is like 300 bucks, past 300 bucks this nice little experiment of mine is totally not worth it. In fact...it's probably not worth it anyway.

But still. You know how it is. When you get ideas in your head. You start surfing, researching etc.

What do you guys think? Ipad or android tablet? And is my budget realistic? Mind you, I'm a big fan of buying electronics off of craiglist, where weed heads will sell their ipods/ipads/macs/ps3 etc that their dad bought them for half price for some weed money.

Haha ZING

I will say here I love my Tablet. I got it for Christmas and haven't even touched its capabilities.

BBD if you are getting one look into this one:
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+T...&skuId=4038674

Its the one I have. It is a little more than you wanted wanted to spend but it is fast and has a keyboard dock that adds to an already long battery.

Hmmm. I'll check into this one. Ultimately, the main use I have for this ipad is for lecture notes on powerpoint, excel spreadsheets, and videos. Like a portable e-notebook that i can use as a study tool.

Why not? I already saw some on craigslist for 250-300 bucks. You'll be surprised how cheap you can get electronics on there. There's always a rich spoiled kid who got one as a gift and sells it on craigslist for half price for some weed money, or a rich manhattan douche that wants to get rid of it for half the price bc he wants the new white one or whatever.

As an example, my cousin (high school kid) sold his ps3 half price on craigslist for weed money, sold the weed, then bought another ps3 for half price off craigslist from another kid who was selling it for weed money.

So yeah...

My other cousin bought a macbook from craigslist from a kid who was selling it for weed money.

I love craigslist. It's great. Forget bestbuy.
