"Some great software from Google has breathed new life into older, yet still compelling hardware"

The Galaxy Nexus is everything Android should be. With Jellybean (4.1 developer build), the phone is incredibly responsive, fluid, and FUN to use. Additionally the GSM Galaxy Nexus gets its updates straight from Google- no more interference from carriers or other manufacturers.

Additionally, for only $350 unlocked from the Google Play Store, the Galaxy Nexus has to be the best value going today- a brand new, carrier unlocked, pentaband top of the line smartphone with the latest and greatest software from Google? It's a no-brainer.

That said, the only two downsides I've seen to this phone are the battery life and camera. I've taken some great shots with the Galaxy Nexus, but you definitely have to frame and compose your shots with a lot more care. That said, it can be quite a capable little shooter if you know what it can do. Additionally, the battery life is pretty short- only about 8 -10 hours a day of real world usage just doesn't cut it when compared to the Galaxy SIII or even the iPhone 4S. Even with these shortcomings, the GSM Galaxy Nexus is still a premium, elegant handset at a great price. Pair it with a good prepaid plan, like Straight Talk's unlimited $45 a month BYOD plan and you've got an unbeatable combo.
