Excerpt: I've had this phone since its incarnation. I was stoked to have my first Android device coming from two sub par Blackberrys (8830 WE and Storm 2). I was even more stoked about what the Nexus line was about and what it meant for me as an owner in that product line - pure Android, constant updates, unlocked bootloader, etc. Most, if not all of those, fell flat with this phone. Most of that has to do with Google and Verizon not playing well together.
Summary: Pros: A good mid level phone for 2014. Descent and large screen. Fast processor. Low priced. Battery can be removed and changed easily. Upgradable to Android 4.2 Cons: Well known low volume hardware defect on this model with no solution. Ringer is extremely hard to hear. The speaker and headset volume are very low. This phone is not usable to view movies or video unless you do not need sound. Wifi range is about half of most other devices. Battery life is poor.
Summary: The CDMA DONT WORK in my country and the seller don't say that in the description of the item, about the product I'm satisfied but the problem with the CDMA is a s***, because I can't activate my cell
Product was not a "new" product as advertised on Amazon

Summary: I did not like this product for a few reasons; the first being that it is being sold as a "new" product. It came nicely packaged as if it were never used but then I noticed a scratch on the screen (not big, but visible). There was also a scratch on the backside as if the phone had been dropped before...this was observed fresh out of the packaging.
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: This was my first phone but I took it back and got an HTC One X. This phone was sluggish and just kind of "dim." When i took it back the sales guy (Best Buy/San Francisco) said I must have a lemon. It couldn't handle 4G LTe (I was/am on AT&T) but worse, it couldn't stay on for long. Just a bad unit, I guess.
Summary: This device is Dreadful. Google need to go with lg or htc because samsung suck. Sprint is even worse with there slow 3g. 4g lte is not even out i should sue. Because i was promised 4g lte and sprint don't even have it what a rip. The camera is ok but if you call samsung and ask about a problem they deny it come on customer service. I have wifi in my house and cannot connect. Wow/ YouTube buffer everytime you use it. My old nexus s is better than this pos.
Pros: Ics pure google good camera
Cons: Everything/ slow data speeds gets hot. Bad reception. Cheep feel. No 4g yet. Ics is not as good as i thought.
Summary: I really wanted to enjoy this phone, but the truth is, it sucks. My battery was dying in my Evo 4G and I haven't seen much of a difference in this brand new phone. My reception is HORRIBLE, including my wifi! I get delayed text messages, sometimes phone calls never reach my phone, and my calls are constantly dropped when I do receive them.
Pros: Screen size, lightweight, texting accuracy
Cons: Screen clarity, low volume, bad signal, doesn't function like a new phone should
