I'll try to keep it short & simple:
1) The HD Super AMOLED screen is amazing!
2) The phone is thin & light
3) Android 4.0 is the best version of Android yet
4) I no longer have phone envy. I don't care about any other phones. They all seem like pieces of sh*t to me now.
5) Camera has lots of cool features
6) 32GB of built in storage
1) The volume could be better. (I tried the Volume+ app & it didn't make much difference)
2) I've had issues where people call me but that can't hear me, or we can't hear each other at all. (Hasn't happened lately)
3) No SD card slot. Not a big deal, but still...
4) I have had shortcuts on my homescreens launch other apps. For instance, I would tap the Googlee Music icon & it would launch the text messaging app instead. i had to open Google Music from the widget to fix it.
5) The camera sucks. If you use the zoom at all, the picture is going to be bad. BAD. If you don't use the zoom at all & have some good light then you can get some decent pictures.
All in all, this is the best Android phone I've had (previously had a Droid Eris, Motorola Droid X and an HTC ThunderBolt). It's the best Android phone on the market in my opinion. If camera quality and an SD card slot priorities for you, then skip the Nexus. If "timely" updates & a pure google experience are important - this is your phone.
