    Korea, date is 12.01. Purchased one week ago, and expecting a replacement tomorrow. Will not hold the 4G signal, oscillates between it and 3G, and drains the battery. Update to 4.0.4 did not help the 4G issue, nor a hard reset.

    2 from Costco both China 11.12 built, 2 replacements Korea 11.11 built.
    All had a few issues, probably the korean a bit less, I want to get a later built one, hopefully with less issues...
    4.0.4 update can't save pics from Facebook and some website either now...
    time for SIII

    I've had a total of three, all from China, all from Amazon Wireless. Two of the three had horrible radio issues, third one drops radio very rarely as compared to the others.

    Korea here..............no problems at all with it
    I'm the 2nd owner of it, but the initial owner got it when they were first released.

    Everything made in China sucks.

    The one I received Friday was supposed to be a CLN device. Upon going into the dialer menu I discovered it was brand new. Also a March build in Korea.
    Got a replacement one too recently. Original one - Bought Dec. 15th, Korean, not sure where to find the date. Major data issues, no 4G in my house, and finally just lost all signal completely. New one - Korean on the label under the battery, says Model: 11.12, STA 4/20/2012.

    Can someone please explain to me if you can tell if it is "brand new" or refurbished, and how? Dont quite understand the dialer comment above. Thanks

    Korea, 11.11 ordered via VZW customer care ~7 days after launch.

    a few reboots before 4.0.4 update, and poor indoor reception (bad enough to completely drop signal) - perfect since update.

    Ordered mine online the 1st night available at 1AM

    Made in Korea

    Great device with some minor faults:
    - I do get the mic cut out, it does affect calls but does not drive me too crazy (yet)
    - Very rare reboots, <5 since I've gotten it, all of them occurring in Navigation mode, have had none since flashing AOKP
    - No data dropout but I do have poor signal. Great signal in my hometown, I've noticed some signal drops when I venture out though.
    - I do get some dropped calls from time to time
    - Flawless screen
    - Flaweless wifi

    There are three Galaxy Nexus smartphones in my family
    and all theee are MADE IN KOREA! Yay!!!

    (1) VZW version, 12/2011, absolutely flawless
    (2) overseas GSM version, 2/2012, absolutely flawless
    (3) VZW version, 4/2012, absolutely flawless(except battery door very tight)

    Samsung is Korean... duh! I wouldn't want to fly on a Boeing or Airbus built in China.(soon)
    Or a Armani suit made in China. Or a non-Japanese sushi chef. Or a Canadian siging the
    US anthem at Super Bown.(sorry, no offense to Canadian, who are the nice people)
    Or a Heineken brewed in America.

    Go into your dialer and dial *#*#RTN#*#* (*#*#786#*#*). It will pull up a screen with RTN. Click and check reconditioned status.

    Mine says "NO" so it should mean it is a new phone. First activated 5/24/2012 which is the day I received it.

    China. Nothing too major, 3G/4G drops on occasion but I'm used to that also happening on my Droid X. I deal with it, far too lazy to get a replacement, especially when it seems a lot of the replacements people are getting are worse. If it ain't broke...
