Excerpt: This phone is extraordinarily powerful. The processor is extremely fast and it has few to no hiccups. I bought it because I needed to get a new plan and figured I would get a cheaper smart-phone, and I am extremely impressed. It exceeded my expectations by far. The battery life on it is fairly short, but that is to be expected with a phone this powerful.
Smooth and fast. Battery life is sub-par, but can be remedied

Summary: The Galaxy Nexus, despite not being the hot new thing on the market anymore, is still a great piece of tech. Right away, I'll point out that the battery life on this thing is sub par. This is definitely the deal breaker if you're on the fence and battery is a prime concern for you. However, if you're someone who doesn't mind plugging in during the day at some point, then you should be all set.
Summary: Got it before Nexus 4 was out. Great bang for the buck back then. Nexus 4 beats it on this front, though. Pros: Great screen Original ("vanilla") android, with no skins and such NFC Good build quality - 6 months no silicon case or screen protector, as good as new. Cons: Battery life could be better Not a good bang to the buck today as it was at launch.
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.
