Summary: This phone is a must have for any user tired of slow running phones. The AOSP stock android experience beats out any touchwiz or sense phone by far. Constant updates for the nexus line is by far a huge selling point. Also you have a phone not ruined by carrier added spam software as well. There is a saying around the Android communities...Once you go Nexus you don't go back. This holds true for me.
Great value for the price! Kept my unlimited internet plan.

Summary: Purchased this product to replace my aging Droid Charge. Needed to purchase at "retail" to keep my unlimited internet plan. This phone has great developer support and I was able to "root" the phone using an available toolkit and then replace the OS with the latest version, Jelly Bean! Phone runs "smooth as butter" and has great battery life!
Excerpt: I've had this phone since January and its by far the best phone I have had. Great screen, blazing fast and easy to use. Stock android is so much better than the skins the other phones have. Glad I bought it. Every software update makes it better and better. Love google now and the new voice search. So much more accurate than siri and faster. Overall now that this phone is free at best buy mobile you really can't beat it. I paid 300 for it when it first came out.
Pros: Super AMOLED Screen, Stock android, Rooting possibilities are endless, Easy to use.
Summary: At first, I thought I overpaid for this phone ($285 used) however I wasn't disappointed once I realized exactly what I had purchased. The new Ice Cream OS is very fast and the functionality is much better than previous droids I've owned. The camera is a little less than desirable quality but the no shutter delay more than makes up for it. I like the front facing camera feature, very useful for people that like to Skype.
