    Just got my Nexus today. I am loving it so far and I can't wait to see what this phone brings us in the future.

    Got my Nexus in hand.

    Upgraded from the Thunderbolt to the Nexus on Thursday. Two things I've noticed right away is the "lack of signal" issue and the poor battery strength. Besides those 2 issues it is a nice phone.

    That's why I have the extended battery with my Bolt. Stock battery even worse than the Nexus!

    How will you get the extra $100 if you are located in Maryland and not the Midwest? I am doing the early upgrade online and the -$50 is showing, but not the $100 3G to 4G credit (I'm in NJ). Also be careful because when i went in store they said they would do the early upgrade, but they would charge me an extra $20 or $25, in addition to me losing my NE2. When i went through the steps online I was not being charged that extra fee.

    Woot Woot! Just bought my Galaxy Nexus from Costco today! Costco sells it cheaper than verizon and gives a free kit. But initial thoughts is awesome but can't wait to play with it more.

    Though I really want a GS2 (we have Epic Touch 4G's but Sprint is horrible here, we have used the ET4G's wi-fi only for months waiting for VZW to release a decent phone):

    I broke down and picked up a GNex with the mid Jan VZW return date, and a Razr for my wife .

    The Razr's blacks are truer, more like the Super AMOLED plus o the GS2 - the GNex looks dull to me - side by side to the Razr here and ET4G but it's not bad. Guess it's a trade off for the hi-rez and fact the GNex isn't Super AMOLED "plus" ..... -

    anywascaryscarey issue - both of these phones tonight just like the Bionic that I tried for a few days at release - have lost 3G connectivity . We are in a non LTE area (LTE is a few miles away). Not good. But when in the LTE area speeds are a bit faster on the GNex than the Razr with the signal near the same. On 3G similar results. With the Bionic losing its 3G data connection periodically and these two phones doing the same thing - makes me wonder if it's just an withe wiht all LTE devices (even in CDMA only areas - HPRD issue?)

    can't call VZW support at this time - will try later today

    one thing more than the camera on the GNex that's getting to me is the really weak spYouTubeovideosTube vides - the Razr is much louder, the ET4G quite a bit louder, just really low on the GNex , even my wife's old Eris is louder. I've seen some posts suggesting a factory reset after 4.0.2 has been installed helps the audio with the GNex, not sure about how that would work but I'll try it later - anything. Volume + on a store model just seemed to distort the sound.

    Copying files to / from the GNex via MTP failed - until i realized that if i copy to the ROOT of the device, there's no issue (root of internal storage) , otherwise file copies would stall. so at least that's corrected - I've read many others have the issue but some don't (perhaps Win7 x64) - installed the Samsung MTP drivers, switched cables etc. - all to find out that if i only copy to the root of internal storage it's fine, odd but at least it works fine that way.

    What does stink though - not only do i have to copy files from the PC to the root of internal storage, - I cannot copy files from folder to different folders once on the GNex - those copies fail (so I mustanothertro ormanagementfile managment app on the GNex to move around files - that's a big pain as I like to do that on the PC, much easier.

    If anyone has a fix for this issue please post. thanks

    I have had my Galaxy Nexus since Saturday (12/17).

    Everything so far has been pretty smooth and great starting from shipping (Got the phone 2 days early, was supposed to have it on Monday).

    The issue with battery drain has become less and less an issue, started out with only 4 hours of battery (on 100% brightness), to now today getting a little over 10 hours (40% brightness) and 3 and a half hours screen use.

    Dropping data in the beginning was quite infuriating, but has become a non issue for the last few days now. Even connection quality on 4g LTE has skyrocketed, I was getting a pretty decent 12 megs up 6 megs down, now I am testing as high as 50 up/ 10 down.

    The phones fluidity and quickness were never a problem, ICS is really awesome, the screen is really clear and I haven't had any problem with picture quality.

    Overall I am very happy I got this phone, started with OG Droid, then Droid 2 global, now this magnificent piece of electronics. Android operating system owns all, and I laugh at people who think their Iphone is gods greatest gift to man. When in reality, the Galaxy Nexus is...just joking, but it is one of the sweetest phones around.
