Nice phone but keep a charger close your gonna need it!!!
I have had the Nexus about a month...I love it!!!! I upgraded from a samsung Restore on the sprint network...was a great upgrade. I think my favorite thing about the phone is the live wallpapers those are soo cool to watch... Battery life and the keyboard freezing up are my 2 least favorite things about the phone...but I knew about those when I bought it. And since I only paid $180 for a phone that was almost $600 i think I can live with a few cons to it... compared to other google phones...I used to have a G1 from Tmobile....I liked it but this Nexus blows it away...So I highly reccommend this phone...Just make sure you keep your charger close...

Excellent phone, sensitive touchscreen, apps load fast, poor battery life.
I started with a Blackberry Curve, moved on to the Palm Pre and now I bought this phone. It is hands down the best phone I've ever owned. The touchscreen is very sensitive, the phone is lightweight and slim, the screen is super bright and very colorful. I will be making a lot of comparisons to the Palm Pre, as that was the first touchscreen phone I had before this one. It takes great pictures (with a flash or without), the front-facing camera and videos are a plus for me. Taking pictures on the Palm was very difficult. The camera was on the back and the button was on the front of the touch screen. Texting is easier on this one with auto text, it was different than the autotext features I've used in the past. You can select the word, or keep typing as you were. It doesn't finish the word, forcing a backspace to correct and change it. The dictionary has a LOT of words, proper names and even those #$%& words that I use frequently. The suggested words come up in a space above your text message, so there's several to choose and it seems to "read" my mind when I typo horribly at times. The number of free apps available on Android is crazy - the Palm was missing out on those. The keyboard works with the phone vertically or horizontally, depending if you have big or small thumbs :) The lag time on the Palm for the phone to "flip" from horizontal to vertical was noticeable and annoying. This one responds immediately. I don't personally use my phone for MP3s as I use Pandora (a free app available on Android Market). The Pandora app works well without interruption, as opposed to the Palm which seemed to experience a lot of freezing and/or lagging. Right now, the only thing I don't like is that it came with no type of carrying case and the battery life sucks. I've gotten used to having my phone on the charger constantly as the Palm Pre was horrible on battery life as well. I found that my old Palm chargers work with this phone, so I now have one for the car, one at work, one at home and all of them work with the USB plug to charge on the computer. If you have a standard micro USB charger, it will work with this phone perfectly. It comes with a wall charger in the box, but with the battery life (or lack thereof) you'll need either a battery backup, or a couple chargers. The phone is fast, responds immediately when an app is opened and so far I haven't had it freeze up on me. Loading my contacts was easy with a Gmail account. Login to Gmail, sync account and voila. It took a few seconds and all of my contacts with phone numbers/email addresses were loaded. I also use it with 2 Hotmail accounts. On the Palm, I continually had errors for incorrect password (it was stored in the phone and it was correct) or SSL certificate errors, etc. randomly through the day. I haven't had a single issue with this phone and email synching. I'm sure there are 100 other reasons to love this phone, but I'm extremely happy I bought it. I already see so many features that it has over the Palm or Blackberry and I know I made the right choice. I will say, it's for the technology savvy person. I wouldn't recommend it for someone who hates computers and isn't into technology at all. I think it would be too much for someone like that. For me, I love gadgety goodness and I never read instructions for electronics, I prefer to figure things out myself. This phone was very easy to figure out, but not super user-friendly. Hope you love it! Read full review

Awesome phone! Will have you thinking "what's an iphone?"
Probably the best phone I have ever had. With 16GB it has more than enough storage to download a ton of apps and customization features such as games, wallpaper, ringtones and enough memory to keep taking pictures. The camera takes pretty sharp pictures and the flash works wonderful in low light conditions. Most importantly it runs fast! You can launch an app and within seconds you're playing games or watching youtube videos. This is my first all touch screen phone without a physical keyboard but you get use to it really fast since the screen is so big (compared to other android phones or even the iPhone) but don't worry because the phone is still real slim that you can carry it in your pocket with ease. A great phone from Sprint that I highly recommend!

A great Android phone that is under-rated!
This is my first Android-based phone and I am very happy with it. The battery life is average, with texting, calling, and using apps I usually have a low battery (10%) by 10PM, so that is about 14 hours of use. It seems to have improved a little after having the phone for a while. The call clarity is excellent and people say they can hear me very clearly. The phone comes with a bare-bones Android system which I LOVE because it basically removes all complaints that people have about Android phones, which is usually the unnecessary stuff that the phone manufacturers and service providers add before shipping the phone to you. What you immediately notice is how smoothly everything moves across the screen, it is like using an iOS based device, just like Google intended! Another thing I like about this device is that it is similar in size to an iPhone. I think it is the perfect size because it doesn't bother me when it is in my jean pocket and it fits in my hand well. All-in-all, this is one of the best designed Android devices and it is supposed to have Android 4.0 coming to it too. Read full review
