Engadget Review

The Galaxy Nexus remains one of the best Android phones on the market, and this version, in particular, includes Google Wallet. Still, the battery life is relatively short, and early adopters will have to wait for Sprint's LTE network to go live.

Overall a good phone, but cell reception is not as good as other smartphones, battery life is pretty bad too. Since those two aspects are pretty critical, I'm not able to enjoy using this phone as much as I want to.

I have had this phone since it first was released, and there is not a single competitor on the market that has yet convinced me to upgrade. Sure, there are phones now with faster processors, more RAM, and sharper displays, but from the perspective of user experience I simply cant tell the difference. I will be keeping my Galaxy Nexus until more significant progress has been made that would actually change my experience.
