The popular challenge series is back!  This time around, I'm taking 14 days to get to know Verizon's Samsung Galaxy Nexus.  I've always liked the design of the Nexus and really like the aesthetic improvements in Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0).  But the battery life could be the worst out of any 4G LTE Android device I've worked with in recent memory.  Seriously, it's terrible.  I've charged the device twice today, and am considering forcing it onto 3G just so I can make it through a day with moderate to heavy use.  I've seen some signal strength issues that are a cause for concern, but I'll continue to evaluate those as the challenge goes on.  Stay tuned!
