It feels really slick in your hand, like it always is going to pop out of it, I'll be glad when the urban armour gear case I ordered for it gets here and have something to grip on to.
Otherwise I'm loving it so far, the sound is awesome definitely a big jump from the nexus.
The camera is good...nothing to brag about but not bad either.
Signal so far seems to be good but I'll see tomorrow when I get in the data center I work in and see what type of signal I get , my nexus would always drop its signal in there where my og droid was able to keep it.
My only real complaint so far is all the Verizon and Amazon crapware I cant uninstall and the lack of a removable battery.
I am definitely looking for a Vanilla rom to put on here and get rid of all of the crapware.
And the battery even though its not removable holds up a lot better than the nexus battery does, I just hope it stays that way.
Congrats. Yeah I know your pain I left my galaxy nexus for a note 2 then I bought a nexus 5. I must admit the nexus 5 is like night and day from the issues I had with the galaxy nexus so much so that it has become my primary device which is a lot because I felt like there was no phone out that could unseat my note 2.
Glad the M8 is working for you though it is a nice device.
