    It's not Sprint and it's not going to get better soon. I've had the Verizon Nexus since it came out and the reception is horrible. It constantly drops data/wi-fi too. Supposedly 4.0.4 is going to help, but by the time that gets released to my phone, my 18 months will be up (next year) and I'll get a new phone. This phone is way too over rated.

    I don't think 4.0.4 will help. It didn't on Sprint for a lot of people.

    I'm still very impressed with my Gnex! I knew the battery life was going to be just ok because.....I use my phone (go figure) ALOT, so I knew what I was getting into. No dropped calls, signal is better since update, used gps it worked. Can't wait for Lte!

    Just got the phone two days ago coming from an Epic 4g Touch and I have been extremely happy. Samsung radios on the Epic 4g Touch and Nexus seem to be similar so can't complain about any abnormally low reception. I was worried about battery life but it isn't terrible either I got 11.5 hours today with 1 hour of call and 2 hours of screen on time. Only thing I miss on the Epic was i felt pictures came out a little better but not a big enough difference to call it a deal breaker.

    Wow....great feedback! Thx guys.
    I've decided to go for the evo lte....sadly the only reason is the camera is supposedly so much better..... wish the GN would have came with better camera specs, I love flashing rooms and themes and the developers for nexus devices are awesome. The number of roms /themes for the GN will be if not already huge. Higher pixels and better sensor and it would have been a no brainer for me to get the GN.

    Its just nice to be able to take high quality pics with my phone rather than having to carry a dslr all the time (not that I have one to carry anyways lol), and capture those spontaneous moments.

    I'm stoked everyone likes their GN, hopefully I'll like the evo late just as much and don't regret my decision.

    Are you digging the all black front without any logos compared to your E4GT? That is something I loved about the GNex.

    Yep I used to love it on my Nexus S and now on this huge screen it is even nicer. It's also awesome when you have a black slate in front of you and a subtle notification glow when something happens on the phone.

    One thing that seemed weird to me was that the notification light wouldn't stay on long enough and I missed a lot of item alerts that arrived. I am used to my EVO alerting me to every item until I clear the notification or access the email or sms or call application. Maybe I didn't have it set correctly.

    A bit too subtle for my use, but surely something to customize. Too bad the radio signals weren't better.

    I really miss the good battery life tho. Back on EVO OG and doing the plug dance.

    I am using and it has been working great for me. I haven't missed any notifications.

    Yeah sammy radios aren't on par with HTC but they aren't terrible for me but i am used to my Epic 4g Touch. I get about 10 hours with 1.5-2 hours of screen on and usually close to an hour of screen on time.

    I've had my Gnex a week and everything seems to work fine on it....screen is great etc. Internet speed has been a issue outside. Making calls even with 1 bar seems to come through just fine. There's pros n cons with most phones. Gnex was the best deal for us and should last a couple years just fine.

    I've had mine since last Tuesday. I have no problems to report so far. No signal issues or nothing. This is by far the best phone I have ever had. The speed, screen, keyboard and stock android are amazing. The fact that it is stock ICS is the main reason why I got this. I hate what HTC, Motorola, etc. are doing to their phones by putting those ugly skins on top of stock. I was going to get the s3 but touchwiz did not sit well with me. Yea I can install a ROM to make it stock but really don't want to void my warranty nor deal with the hassle. Anyway, the phone is incredible. I'm very happy with my decision.

    Device only gets better with rooting, unlocking the bootloader, and flashing custom ROMs and kernels and themes. A phone for those who truly want to make it their own ;-)

    The reason we [won't] make a 7-inch tablet isnt because we dont want to hit [a lower] price point, Jobs said. Its because we think the screen is too small to express the software. As a software driven company, we think about the software strategies first. - again, Steve Jobs

    Only the end of day one and I have been happy. Need a bit more time of actually using and working on the phone to see if its a true keeper. The only thing I'm worried about is its slippery and being so thin its hard to hold in certain situations but that will be fixed with an extended battery and case.

    After two weeks I'm very happy, I've owned a Hero, Evo 4G, Evo 3D and now Nexus S, I played with the new Nexus at Sprint and would love a week with it to really play. The Evo LTE sounds good, but I am afraid of phones I can't change battery in, this is a fear I should be over. Before I was declared disabled I drove a truck with no power adapter in it, I pushed my phone daily, going through 2 or 3 batteries was the norm. Now I'm out of work it shouldn't be such an issue but old habits die hard. Plus the fact I have no income until my disability applications are approved.

    I too am considering an evo lte but the battery is a HUGE issue for me. Granted the new eco will have the late radio built into the processor, I still don't think hat will be enough to make the battery last much longer or even the same as the gnex. Sure it's a newer phone and hardware, hut like all evos (minus the shift) they don't do well on battery due to the top end hardware. While HTC has always done me good over the years, I think this is one I'll have to pass up.

    Well with my transformer and gnex I have been able to work while feeding the baby and glued to the couch with him sleeping on me. After a good bit of heavy use (wifi and 3g use)here is what my battery says:

    So the phone has been off the charger for 4 hours and 44 minutes with the screen on for 2 hours and 8 minutes and you think that the radio is what's killing your battery? Don't get me wrong, I've ran into situations where I end up in a dead zone and it kills my battery but I've had that with every phone I've ever owned. I think your problem is more likely that you've got the screen on too much. The screen on this phone is a battery hog to say the least.

    No. Im saying the reason Im starting to not like the phone is the radio performance. The screen was on alot as I was trying to get the phone working in an area I have never had a problem (even my palm pre got great reception there) but was not on for even close to 2 hours. Even with the phone screen off and the phone in my pocket doing nothing it got warm from what I assume is searching for signal (even though I could barely even roam). Now I have done a few things (reset the phone, prl/profile update, battery pull for 1 min, etc) and Ill make further judgement after the gym this evening. I dont want to return this phone as I love everything about it (minus radio performance) and I can even deal with 3g only until LTE rolls out as its such a great phone.

    As for screen usage well I worked on the phone ALOT more then I did in the 4.75 hour period last night during the day and got really good battery life on wifi/3g. Between email, SSH, VNC and so on I worked the phone hard and got great battery life (look at my post previous to the bad battery life one and youll see 55% screen power usage) ~15 hours with heavy use before getting a warning at ~12%. Oh and the % used doesnt convert to time, rather its just representation of what is eating power.

    Unfortunately, that is the main fault of this great phone. Poor radios. I had to return mine for the same reasons. Hope EVO is better.

    Sadly if what I did doesnt fix the performance where I need it Ill have to suffer with the fixed battery evo lte if there is even one I can buy in a couple of days. But Im hoping what I did fixes this as I doubt the evo LTE will be available in my area anytime soon and the fixed battery is probably the most scary thing I have ever had to look forward to.

    What did you fix on GNex? I did these same things multiple times... reset the phone, prl/profile update, battery pull for 1 min, etc.
