Pros Straight up Google phone for the fastest updates.
Fastest and most advanced processor on the market.
Cons Lack of LTE but not a big issue really. Side by side testing will prove this.
Summary Great phone, Fastest Android updates, best processor great price!!!
Pros -great price
-early updates from google
-very very good speakers
Cons -no lte (hardly care)
-speaker used for calling (the front facing one) is a little poor, but I either use speakerphone or headphones if i need to call. Generally I text a lot so i don't even notice due to the little time i spend calling.
Summary great phone, I love it. nfc seems to be a little buggy but i'm getting that sorted.
Pros Style, battery life, camera, processor, network speeds, android 4.2, value
Cons lack of SD card slot, camera's flash can wash out low light pictures, touch screen can be a little too sensitive at times.
Summary This is my 3rd Android phone, first 2 being a G1 and G2x on T-Mobile, and this is the Android I've been waiting for. The OS is polished and finally feels cohesive. The phone it's self has the processor power to make every transition and animation fluid. Data speeds average around 12Mbps on T-Mobiles HSPA+ network in Minneapolis. Phone has a very premium feel to it and even though it is made of glass it feels very strong and sturdy. I do wish it had an SD card slot but at the same time I have come nowhere close to using up the 16GB of on board storage. This is by far the best phone I've ever owned.
Pros Updated OS
S4 pro processor
Cons No removedable battery
NO expendable storage
Summary Overall is good
Pros Quad Core bliss
Finally quick updates!
Cons No LTE!
No memory card slot
Non removable battery
Summary I really really like my Verizon Galaxy Nexus. I picked it because I got tired of AT&T and iOS. I thought by ignoring the slew of Android devices that seem to come out every other day and picking a "Google" phone I would get the quickest updates. Wrong, apparently Verizon likes to play by their own rules and has painfully and slowly released updates. So the great news is that Google has bypassed this by releasing the Nexus 4 unlocked. Which means you use it basically for AT&T and T-Mobile. But if that was bad enough by laving out Spring and Verizon they also left out 4G since that would have to involve carriers. At $299 8GB or $350 16GB your getting a great phone at a great price, but why 8GB? 16GB is almost too small. I have held the phone and it's awesome. It keeps the save looks of Galaxy but luxes it up with a glass back with a cool design. Is it iPhone quality yet? No but it beats Samsung's cheap plastic feel. The phone is fast, real fast, well at least when it comes to non data movement since the phone doesn't have LTE. This is a bummer since I can't get it for Verizon.
Without having LTE the Nexus phone takes 2 steps forward and one giant step backwards. It okay with HSPA+ considering T-Mobile is based on that whole system and iPhone 4S users dealt with it, but it's still sad to see such a great phone like this lack such a universal feature. The one caveat to this is, at least people don't have to deal with carriers bull on releasing updates anymore.
