I'm lovin' GNex and T-Mobile!
I just wanted to make a quick post about the Google Galaxy Nexus I just received from El Goog.
I come from a long line of Sprint phones (like 4 feature phones (incl. the tiny blue and silver LG flip), Treos 300 & 600, Palm Pre, Evo4g and Evo3d).
I was SO taken with the HTC One X that I was going to use my last Sprint Premier customer upgrade for that phone...to go along with my $99 unlimited everything plan. Then HTC and Sprint broke my heart (and the design of the One X IMHO).
So, fast forward several weeks, and I couldn't resist jumping on the Nexus with T-Mobile prepaid monthly 4g! I just activated on the $50/month plan, but if my transition to Google Voice works out I'll probably drop it down to the $30/month plan and just text when I'm out and about.
I love the phone. It fits my hand better than the 3d (thinner and lighter makes it better to use with one hand), the display is much brighter, and I'm using Chrome as the browser. The key features I love about ICS are the folders and the menu for multitasking/app switching. Not to mention the speed. I know there are complaints about the camera...but I'm coming from the 3d...and neither will match iPhone pics, I'm sure, so I can live with that not being the best.
I do NOT miss Sense at all. I've also realized that there will not be an official ICS update for the 3d for some time, otherwise, that's less motivation to upgrade to the One X.
For those of you out there like me, that have been with Sprint for 12+ years, who are brand loyal (I still have my Palm Pre), please don't hesitate on this phone, it's really striking.
On a side note, the phone call to port my number from Sprint took all of 2 menus and a total of 4 minutes, 37 seconds. Looking forward to T-Mo.
