    The Verizon GNex was kind of notorious for bad radios.. I really don't like the camera in the phone either.. It's fine for daylight photos in perfect lighting.. but many of the times, I want to take indoor photos and they don't come out NEARLY as nice as my friends with a GS3 or my girlfriends iphone (blows it out of the water).

    Love everything except the battery life.

    I have stock 4.1.1 installed.

    The good:

    Very stable OS.
    The phone is pretty speedy and doesn't lag very often.
    The screen looks great (especially if at full brightness, where it belongs...).
    When on WiFi, I can get over 3 hours of screen time on a single charge (I *think* that is good).

    The bad:
    The radios suck.
    When you are not on WiFi, the battery life sucks also as a result.
    Did I mention the radios suck? I am in the heart of 4G territory but am lucky to get a 4G signal at home. At my office (in a major metropolitan area) I set 10 feet from the windows and am lucky to get a 3G signal.
    Did I mention how bad the battery life sucks when not on WiFi? It really, really sucks when I am at my office. When this phone cannot get a super strong, super solid data signal, it burns through battery power faster than Obama burns through the federal deficit.

    It depends:
    The camera for me is actually pretty good and I get compliments on my photos all the time (including indoor photos). It far surpasses the iPhone 4 camera but I don't know about newer iPhone models or One X, S3, etc.

    Yesterday at 13 hrs, my battery was at 50% on my thunderbolt. Right now I'm at 8 hrs and at 44% because I had to go to the airport today and was using 4g. Sounds like I made a good decision waiting. Based on battery life.

    I have both the S3 and the nexus. I definitely think the nexus was/is a great device and is even better if you want to root/rom. I would not for any price lock in a contract with it today though. I would get it again on release a year ago but not now. IMO the S3 has better battery life, a better and larger screen, a better quality camera that is even better with jellybean in low light, much better radios and stability of signal, I like the additions Samsung made like smart stay and auto haptics in games, it also has a faster processor and more ram which are good for future proofing. I love the nexus and am not bashing it in any way but the S3 is definitely a better phone.

    I'm very happy with my GNexus overall. I actually do not like the oversized screen too much because its a pain to use one handed. The S3 is even worse. When I'm walking the dogs, or carrying anything its clumsy to use. I swap back and forth with an iPhone 4s and it has a better quality screen that either Samsung, better camera and is easier to use. The GNexus is great for customizing, widgets, nav, and ROMing. I wouldn't want the S3 because its locked down and overpriced. The GNexus is more than fast enough. I see no reason for a faster processor.
