    I don't have a Facebook so that doesn't bother me. Weak speaker is something that I can deal with. :b

    I honestly do like the phone and I plan on keeping it.
    However it has some issues.
    The issues for me don't seem to be affecting anyone else, but that's ok because I'm not affected by the issues most others are having.

    Voice dial over bluetooth is horrible, and the worst part is there is no setting to prompt for verification or adapt your voice.

    I think the camera is better than the credit I've given it, but I still can"t say it's good.

    I like to have a background image on my Google homepage, but the Nexus can't select the image and if I select the image from my PC the Nexus can't display the page properly.

    Watching some videos with black backgrounds produces some odd blue blotches. But it doesn't appear to always happen.

    I have no problems with my signal, call quality, wifi, transferring files over USB, speaker volume, or LEDs.

    Weak speaker will be fixed at some point with an OTA. Not to worry

    If you're on a fringe 4G area you may have problems with 4g to 3g transitions, I don't have any problems but I know they've been mentioned.

    I don't notice the speaker being quiet, maybe the voltage is higher on mine, shrug.

    You don't use facebook so you won't be affected by the contact issue.

    A lot of apps haven't been updated for 4.0, so you could see some random reboots if you try to use old apps that don't work well on 4.0.

    Some people have signal issues, but I have not seen these at all, my 4G has been pretty incredible.

    Notifications were a little wonky when I got mine stock, but I installed the free app Lightflow and it let me set any color notification I want and works perfectly. I'd suggest this app asap if you like different colors for different notifications.

    Enjoy! It's really a great phone, don't let people scare you with all their "issues" if it was serious we'd all be pissed.

    This was debunked the other day by a Google employee, both mysid and yakju versions are directly updated from Google.

    I'll edit with the link if I find it again.
