Summary: Even though the market right now shows phones like the HTC One, LG G2, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S4, and iPhone 5S (see what i did there), that doesn't mean you should ignore this smartphone. The Galaxy Nexus is one of the best devices still available.
Summary: The phone is nice, good audio, BIG screen. A protective cover makes it a little difficult to operate (it is necessary to press the side keys really hard), but it is necessary since the screen is too big and a phone drop may cause the display to crack (I've seen this before).
Just about the only way you'll get real Google Android on VZW

Summary: This is, and has been for more than a year, one of the finest phones on Verizon Wireless in my opinion. I really prefer the open nature and usability of pure AOSP Android OS with full Google Services and that's what Nexus devices are known for.
Summary: My first android phone, am actually typing the review with the phone, awesome phone pure Google experience is just incredible, I could have gone with an s3 but I did not. I chose this phone for the main reason that it's a nexus device and, this means I will always have the latest and greatest...
Excerpt: this phone is great everything moves in it pretty fast. The battery isnt great its the same size battery as my photon 4g not sure why they did that. Reception for this phone is poor indoors not sure why also wifi signak is weaker then most phones usuallt the same signal no matter what samsung...
Pros: picture quality is great, UI is amazing love ics, great look and feel
Cons: dont have 4g lte yet, no sdcard but I knew this before buying, indoor reception is poor even under wifi, indoors call quality is terrible
Summary: I bought this phone less than a week ago for my wife as a present to 8-th of March. Package delivered on time, everything was new. So it's fine. But wife doesn't really like it. She tried it for few days and wanted to return it back.
Summary: This is a thin phone that is just the right size. The 4.65" screen is gorgeous and a very big upgrade from my previous phone. The dual-core processor is leagues faster and stock Android is a very big plus since Google Nexus devices are first to get the latest version of Android.
Summary: Love this phone. As soon as I started using it, it upgraded the system to Android 4.2.2. First used it in Palau with no trouble with local SIM. Now in the Philippines and it is performing beautifully with the Smart SIM card. In short, very pleased.
