Been following this phone for about 2 months now. If only it had a better camera, it would be the boss. But I gotta give it to the HTC ReZound at the moment. Seems like Samsung/Google went backwards on the phone. The Samsung Galaxy S2 is very similar, it's just that it doesn't have 720p resolution. I'm thinking the Tegra 3 phones will be better. Maybe I'll have to wait till Motorola releases a Nexus phone. There's always something wrong with the Nexus phones that make it a deal breaker for me.

I bought it on monday from vodafone Romania and i like it, i upgraded from sg2 BUT the camera on the sg2 is net superior than the nexus and also internet browsing seems to be smoother on sg2, in all the other things nexus is better and it looks and feels supperior to sg2. The phone was locked on vodafone ro so i had to pay them 45euros to send me the network unlock code for my nexus. It is the best android phone and android4 rulz!

Bionic update was huge. Fixed several little annoying issues and few big ones. One being auto focus on the camera. Other was data connection drop outs, auto issues, also fixed "black screen of death", only cure was to pull the battery. Solid phone now.

Slated to get ICS as well!

..So, who's buying one?

Not I. Not yet anyway. After the deluge of coverage of the phones less than stellar performance, and major sound bug, and other issues from Europeans that have the phone, I will wait for a few patches/issue resolutions on this device before I throw my $299 on it.

Could you do some video decoding in 1080p? I really want to know if it supports Hi10P >_<

Also, does it have the ability to read USB sticks with the adapter as the Galaxy S II does?

Cheers!

Yeah yeah. And if you wanted to change your default browser on an iPhone, or do a number of other incredibly reasonable, basic functionality types of things (like arranging the freaking icons the way you want), you'll have to jailbreak.

If you don't like that price id love to see your reaction for the cost of buying one without a contract. I paid the same price for an origional motorola droid a few weeks after release with the contract. I shoulda ponied up the $600 to buy it outright.

Doesn't Verizon have a $50 unlimited plan that's off contract? If so buying outright should save around $400 over 2 years. Doesn't seem like much in comparison, but still saving money.

You must be young. It's ok. More megapixels doesn't necessarily mean a better camera. And you can wait for the tegra 3 if you want, but by the time it comes out there'll be something better on the horizon.

I bought one early release morning, i love it, though the camera is only a 5mp, it takes excelent photos, and the response of the shutter is amazing. upgraded from a Moto Dx.

I will! The sound bug have been fixed for a while now, and I haven't seen the deluge of bad reviews that you saw. Anyway, no phone is perfect these days. I'm just waiting for it to be available at Videotron in Quebec to get one. Bell and Télus already have it, so I'm guessing it's only a matter of weeks.

And @otacon72 : You're thinking of the iPhone...
