And, this is why the Nexus is the right choice: http://www.theverge.com/2012/3/13/28...roid-4-0-video
Samsung ruins everything with TouchWiz
I heard the Nexus has a Notifcation LED which you can change its color of different types of notifications? This is a very nice feature for me tbh
I have to say, SMSing on the Galaxy Nexus is brilliant! Not sure if it's the phone or the keyboard but it's fast and easy!
this phone has no radio
Some commenters have pointed out that my long list of complaints (I dock the screen, camera, and battery life, among other things) is at odds with my assessment that it’s the best smartphone I’ve ever used.
It’s a fair question. How can that be?
I think it’s a testament to the fact that we’re a long way from “the perfect smartphone.” In fact, I don’t actually believe we’ll ever get there, since our expectations keep moving. If you had debuted the Galaxy Nexus in 2008, it’d be considered a perfect 10, for instance — but today, our official review scores it “a mere” 8.6. This time next year, it could be a 7.5. Who knows? Everything is perceived in the context of current technology, of the competition, and of how heavily we’ve come to rely on our mobile devices.
The Settings menu is the ICS one, and if you want the stock ICS look then a simple install of Nova or Apex launcher is all you need, plus the GS2 absolutely ****s all over GNexus in almost everything when running ICS, so imagine the GS3 I say wait Wait WAIT!

"World can't hold me, too much ambition."
So everyone, I bought my Galaxy Nexus yesterday!
It's such an awesome phone. Beautiful screen, stock ICS is wonderful, and there are massive improvements to almost all the system apps. Face unlock isn't a gimmick at all; provided you "improve" it a few times, it works across in a wide variety of conditions, is extremely fast and genuinely useful.
However, there's just one problem. I'm pretty sure I got a faulty unit
Any app that uses a native view (as opposed to a web view) and uses images from an online source wouldn't load the images. As a result, the Android Market ends up looking like this:
I encountered the same problem on apps like Boid and Foursquare: text would load, but images would not.
I was only able to find two other people on the whole internet who have encountered the same problem, and both of them were running custom ROMs:
Neither of those pages offered any solutions. I tried accessing the internet from different cellular towers. Then I tried doing a factory reset, but the problem persisted.
So, today I took my phone back to Vodacom today and reported it as an out-of-the-box fault. They took the phone in, but they said that they first need to send it in to their technicians to confirm that there really is a problem. So now I have to wait an extra before I get my GNex back. And worst of all, I have this terrible suspicion that their technicians won't understand what the problem is, and they'll just say the phone is fine and send it back to me. And then I'll have to fight with them and send it back in again. Sigh.
I don't suppose anyone here has encountered the same problem?

Probably because I linked to xda. I duplicated the image on Dropbox; should work now.
@Vulk Have you tried using wifi....
I found a similair problem with my galaxy tab 3g... I eventually found it was actually the sim card... Parental control was active, and somehow the images on most sites refuse to load... Android market included...
