I'm just going to point out a couple of things in this review that I feel need to be addressed.
The display is gorgeous for most uses but does display skin tone wrong, giving faces a reddish tone.
The camera isn't as bad as some make it out to be. Just because it gives you the ability of zero-lag shooting doesn't mean you can click on it continuously and expect every shot to be in focus. If you are tapping the shutter button repeatedly, you are most likely not holding the camera very still. In addition, your subject may be moving as well. That is why you are getting some blurry shots, people. You need to give any camera in the world time to refocus if the camera or the subject moves. If you shoot like you are supposed to, by having the phone focus on the subject and then shooting, you'll get a focused shot.
Having an iPad 2 as a comparison, I love how fast the phone is. Just like iOS, it responds to your clicks, taps, and swipes instantly.
One minor thing that I wish Google would add is an LTE on/off single click widget, like they do with Wifi and bluebooth.
I wouldn't tell an iPhone user to switch to the Galaxy Nexus, but I could easily recommend this to a current Android user that wants the perfect Android experience.
