    Loving it, though I'm coming from an ancient Palm Pre...camera is good enough, if you want a really good camera, get a DSLR...battery life is an issue, I've tried all the fixes on the forums...may just pay up for the 3800 Seido

    As a former owner of multiple Palm devices over the years, I don't think anyone jumping from a Pre to GN should have any complaints. Sad but true, the Pre era is quite over. Enjoy your new superphone!

    The evo 4g lte is better than the Gnex in all regards, it's just up to you if you can accept HTC's Sense UI. The Gnex to me just feels exactly like an ns4g, just with a bigger screen and faster operations.

    SMH...I'm amazed how so many people state the EVO 4G LTE is better than the GNEX and it has not even been released to the general public. Bugs and quirks are yet to be seen. There are many HTC users that won't even touch the EVO 4G LTE from past HTC experiences, and others that sing it praises like Apple Fanboys. To each his own, but really? Let's just see what comes out in the wash.

    SMH. Nothing you wrote is actually true. All of these are good devices and have differences that appeal to some more than others. EVO LTE looks great but is yet unknown. GNex is great if u don't want a skin. GNex is bigger, faster, has LTE capability and missing features like a notification light over ns4g. All have a compromise one way or the other. (Unless u ask an Apple user, of course)

    I am very glad I picked the GN.
    I am not a fan of HTC phones and the GSIII is not very attractive.
    Just my $.02

    Overall im happy, much faster than my S 4G and the screen is to die for. Vanilla ICS is pretty much all ive known since I switched to team android so im happy there too, debating on whether I should root though, I always end up wanting to do it but just back away a lil each time.

    Coming from EVO 4G I have to say I really like the stock Android experience. While HTC provided some nice touches, I've replaced nearly every feature I missed with Widgets from the market and Nova Prime. Nova may be a first requirement of ICS for anyone wanting a fully skinnable Launcher without rooting the phone. While still getting a very stock experience.

    I was really surprised and happy to see that Sprint didn't add a single piece of bloat to the Gnex despite what VZW apparently did to ruin their customers pure Android experience. Not to mention Sprint has shipped with 4.0.4, while Verizon customers are still stuck on 4.0.2, 5 months after the phone launched! No wonder they are all rolling custom ROMs.

    I'm digging my GNexus more and more as each day passes towards my drop dead date to return it within 14 days. The screen is just terrific and YouTube looks amazing on it.

    My only hesitation is the signal strength for wifi and GPS and to some extent 3G. One thing I'm wondering about is whether the signal issues might improve with further updates from Google or Sprint. The HTC One X forums have some of these same complaints (tho not the 3G one), so I wonder if it is an ICS issue that could be improved??? I will say that even though it runs all day showing 1 or 2 bars on wifi and 3G, it stays super fast with downloads on wifi and doesn't seem to drop connections. I want to travel with it, but nothing scheduled prior to my return expiration date. Arrgh!! No telling whether EVO LTE would be any better. Loving the clean ICS without skinned features that I don't use anyway.

    And the no no logos all black front is sweet.

    I am also coming from a Palm Pre. I really liked my pre and held off as long as possible. I was over my replacement by one year. I was a little dissapointed at the lack of a micro sd slot. But it is a pretty nice phone. Any screen issues I think are caused by ics itself. It looks the same on my ics tablet. I do wonder if I should have held out for the GSIII. The specs are tempting. But not having a phone with bloatware, is the pure google worth not having a few extra specs? I do really miss using my touchstone. I heard the gsIII has wireless charging capabilities.

    PS. The camera means nothing to me, I own multiple DSLR's. If I want a good, printable picture, I will use a real camera.

    I am happy with mine, coming from a NS4G. My only gripe with it is just about every time I set it down there is like a small rattle/vibration that comes from the top of the phone. I'm not sure if anybody else has heard this, or if this is something I should be returning it/exchanging it for. I can reproduce it by gently tapping on the back of the phone above the camera. I thought it might be the back plate, but it still does it with it off. I take really good care of my things, and it hasn't been dropped, so it is a bit bothersome being a brand new device.

    I can't get mine to make any rattle. I think u might want to return it just in case for down the road.

    I've been thinking about the G Nex, but will wait for some reviews of the evo LTE. I haven't been able to determine if it will run Wimax until LTE is available. If it is only 3g until then, I might consider the G Nex, at least for future upgrade purposes.

    Im pretty sure it will not come with wimax, the first two LTE phones did not. I dont see why this will change for the Evo. Plus that would be an extra radio they would have to put in.

    I am still very happy with my Nexus, today is the last day to return it and I will not be doing that. I have had Zero problems with it. My signal strength has been very good always 3-4 bars and my battery life averages about 13 hours on a charge with moderate use. I would not trade it for the Evo 4g LTE. It doesnt feel like a bigger, faster NS4G to me at all to me. Love everything about the phone.

    That's what I have read to this point. So, no "4G" Wimax on the Evo LTE. Even though it is probably going to be a great phone, the G Nex might be a better option if I need something immediately. I do really like the Snapdragon S4 phones coming out, but I could probably wait for the next round w/the better Adreno graphics components, and hopefully 64gb of RAM or at least 32 w/a micro SD upgrade to 64 or 96 w/a removable battery.

    Both the EVO LTE and the GNex LTE will absolutely not run on Wimax 4G. They only have 3G and LTE radios and do not have a Wimax radio.

    And the GNex unfortunately struggles with 3G signal. Hoping EVO LTE does much better.

    Think its more Sprint's towers than the phone. Could be wrong, but it should get better across the board soon.

    I've been going back forth over returning this phone for the EVO but I am pretty sure I will be keeping it. I love the on screen buttons, pure ICS and the 32GB of on board memory.

    I actually don't think it's a Sprint issue at all. Read the same signal issues in the Verzion GNex forums. And signal issues with the Nexus S and GPS issues with the Galaxy SII. It's a Samsung issue that is recurring. I don't know why Sprint and Verizon keep taking these new phones from Samsung without demanding that they fix their poor radios. I wish they would, 'cause I really liked using the GNex aside from the poor 3G/wifi/GPS. Loved the sleek all black front without logos.
