Excerpt: I only had the phone for just shy of two months before getting the SGSIII. Overall it was a different experience coming from a Droid X2. The phone just worked. No reboots or any lag whatsoever. You touched the icon for something and it just did it. Right away even. Phone got warm occasionally but nothing serious. Cellular radio was ok but nothing to write home about. The 4G/CDMA radios are another thing all together.
Pros: Display, Speed, Camera
Cons: Battery, Battery, Have I mentioned the battery yet?
Summary: This phone is the ONLY phone anyone interested in Android should purchase! The main reason for getting this phone is that it is updated directly from Google. This means that you will receive the newest version of Android, currently Jelly Bean 4.1, before anyone other phone! All of the other phones have to wait for their respective carriers to tweak JB 4.1, adding all kinds of proprietary junk to it. Then months later you MIGHT get the newest version of Android.
Excerpt: I got this phone shortly after Google started selling it for $400. I am glad to report that it is well worth the price. The greatest part of the phone is its hd screen, it is very bright and high resolution, webpages are readable in full desktop size without zooming in with both landscape and even if you look close portrait.
Pros: 720p HD Screen, Great web browsing experience, Excellent UI, Lag free after Jelly Bean, Sunlight viewable
Cons: no microsd card slot, Low battery with apps that have a lot of white backgrounds
Pros: The Nexus has a bright screen, lovely photo image capability and a large viewing screen. Apps run fast and manipulating items on screens is easy.
Cons: There is a LOUD screeching/fax machine squeal and clicking or Loud static when making and receiving calls that is eardrum-piercing. When accessing the voicemail at times, the screen goes black when you try to touch password which disallows access.
Excerpt: I have had several android phones. Like many others I could not wait for the Nexus Galaxy to be released. Well, it never lived up to the hype. The reception was awful. It dropped calls. When compared to the other members of my family who had a variety of phones, it always had less bars of reception. I replaced the phone twice and the Sim card twice. There was no improvement. I eventually changed the phone out for a Razr Maxx and love it.
It is a premium device well deserving of a higher price.

Summary: I bought this phone to use on T-mobiles $30 plan, and I've been blown away. The performance you get from this phone goes well beyond what the specs would suggest. The screen is beautiful, the camera works great, and Android 4.0 works like a dream(and 4.1 works even better).
