Samsung Galaxy Nexus Challenge: Conclusion

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus Challenge has come to a close, and despite loving the 4.65-inch HD display, stock Ice Cream Sandwich interface, and overall form factor, I couldn't shake the issues with the wireless radio and battery life problems.  If I stayed on the LTE network throughout the day, I was charging the 1,850 mAh battery 2-3 times.  Needless to say, that's unacceptable.  Additionally, the wireless radio seemed to struggle in areas where other Verizon phones didn't.  

It's a great phone if you're into media, but those that need a device for calls and overall longevity will want to consider another option.  Stay tuned for more phone challenges on the site!
