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!
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.
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.
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.
Reliable, fast, inexpensive 4G phone at a lower cost than a new one!

Summary: I am very happy with my Samsung Nexus. The phone operates on 4G LTE and provides all the features I need for personal and business use. Taking the time to review and select the most reliable and least invasive android apps has resulted in a phone that is very productive. The price was much less than a new phone and allowed me to maintain my current unlimited data plan through Verizon.
