    He really liked it. Good read, and good video review imo.

    http://www.theverge.com/2011/11/17/2568348/galaxy-nexus-review

    They're reviews of the following were:

    Razor: 7.0
    Rezhound: 7.6
    Nexus: 8.6

    GOOD STUFF
    • Ice Cream Sandwich is a fantastic OS
    • Gorgeous display
    • Super fast performance

    BAD STUFF
    • Camera is hit or miss
    • Screen has minor issues
    • Materials for casing could be higher end

    Called it "one of the best smart phones ever made and the best android phone ever made."

    I read a review where someone was actually bragging on how fast the zero shutter lag camera and that like 1 of 5 shots was even usable.:blink:

    I like speed, but not just for the sake of speed. The shots need to be at least ok. Otherwise slow it down. I am still getting the phone, but hope the fast camera is not a gimmick.

    This part is key:

    "Note: our testing was done on a pre-production model, so there are some minor hardware build issues unrelated to performance. Our time for battery and data testing was limited, and we'll update the post with further findings as we get them."

    So I hope some of issues he mentioned will be addressed.

    I wonder if the camera is better than the GSII.
