I love this phone, I am very happy with my purchase coming from a jailbroken iphone 3Gs. It is however not perfect, just as any other phone on the market, but it's the closest to perfection (if there is such a thing) I have seen so far.
The display is gorgeous and I have no complaints.
The design is very nice on this phone. The plastic does not feel cheap as on the GSII for example.
The cameras are the disappointment in this phone but if you're not looking to replace your digital camera then it is just fine. It is capable of taking stunning pics depending on the lighting. The camera shutter is very impressive an there is literally no lag. My favorite part of the camera is the software that comes with it and all the different features you get right out of the box. The front camera is really good for video chatting and is capable of shooting in 720p!
Reception and call quality are perfect so far.
The performance is impressive although it has its hiccups but considering all the intense programs and services running in the background at once, it is actually amazing.
ICS is stunning from the new Roboto font to the entire UI..... I love it!
Battery life is not so good with the standard battery but for an extra $25 you can get the extended battery that makes it a little better. My phone can last from 9-13 hours on average.
The ecosystem is not yet what it should be but is very promising!
This phone is not for everyone (as any other smartphone) but I would say it is one of the safest bet on the market currently especially being a Nexus "pure" Google phone!
