What was your first Nexus? Why did you buy it? Did/would you buy another?

Curious as to how people got into Nexus. The brand has really been increasing in popularity over the years!

My first Nexus was a Nexus S 4G on Sprint. I bought it because my Galaxy S1 broke at the time and Sprint offered to give me the Nexus because it was on backorder. I loved the curved display; it felt comfortable during calls. It helped me learn more about Android and up until they day it finally died I loved everything about it (except the camera)

I have since bought a Nexus 7 (2012) and I just ordered a Nexus 5. At this point, they are the only Android devices I can recommend (Moto X comes close in this regard, otherwise I'd tell people to get an iPhone.)
