Summary: Excellent phone. It's nice to not have all the carrier bloat & its even nicer to get Android updates so much quicker than other devices. Battery life is about par with most Android devices (8-12 hours) so plan on having a few chargers around. Would consider Samsung again & would definitely consider another Nexus device in the future.
Great phone! Perfect buy if you're between upgrades or don't want to extend

Summary: I bought the phone to replace my HTC Evo Shift (never buy that phone EVER!). It addressed my most immediate issue (storage), which was great. I wish it had expandable memory (SD card) and better battery life, but it tends to do the job I need fairly well. I also tried beaming to a non-Samsung phone, which didn't work, so I'd like to figure out what's up with that. Otherwise, I love it!
Summary: My experience with this vendor was super positive. A day after ordering the phone it occurred to me to email the seller and ask if the phone came with a sim card (which it didn't). I received a response within 6 hours and the seller informed me that I can get one for free at the verizon store (which I did).. The phone came as advertised (perfect condition, like new), and 4 days earlier than the estimated delivery date. Now onto the phone.
If you are on Verizon and want an Android, get this phone.

Summary: The Galaxy Nexus is a very well designed phone. My biggest issue with this particular Verizon model, is the battery life was absolutely awful, but maybe it was just a bad battery. Still, if you love Android and are on Verizon, you should get this phone, if you want (as close to) a "Pure Google" experience with Android.
Summary: Despite being part of the Nexus family, this phone does not receive Android updates at the same time as Google-sold Nexus. I'm still stuck on Android 4.1 two months after Google started rolling out 4.2. This is disappointing because immediate updates is a big reason for buying Nexus. I contacted the seller and he said he had no clue on when I'd get an update. Wish I knew this upfront.
Even after a year this is still one of the best phones out there!

Summary: This is an amazing phone! I needed a new phone and this one really delivered. I love the pure android experience and the features! The only problem is how long Verizon takes on the updates. But its no reason to not buy it. It's an all around near perfect phone and one i will have for a while. I have had plenty of phones and this one is definately my favorite.
Summary: Purchased as a mid-contract replacement because my Droid X2 wasn't working properly. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus has been a great phone. Easy to work with, seller provided an extended battery which is VERY necessary given the 4G capablity of the phone (phone may be searching for 4G when I don't realize it). Some accessories were hard to find, but that's becuase the phone is not in current production. I considered many models and am very glad I chose this one.
Summary: Since we're passed the end of life for the Galaxy Nexus, it's a steal most places. Not to mention, you're still getting the most recent upgrades of Android operating system either via Google -or- via the xdadeveloper community(recommended)
Summary: Excellent! Took a little digging to get everything to sync. The only problem was mating my hands-free Blue Tooth in my car. The phone didn't recognize my car's signal, even though the phone has the same connection program. After several attempts it worked.
Summary: I love Android. However, the Galaxy Nexus lasted me for less than a year. The biggest problems have been with charging. The icon would show charging when connected to the power supply, but the battery would not always charge. The battery icon would also continue to show charging when disconnected from the power supply. It was sometimes necessary to shut the device down completely to charge the battery. Then there were the frequent, random restarts.
