First and Foremost, you can’t beat the price for what you get. After having it for a month now I can fully tell the issues and great attributes of the device. What you get is an awesome device and great unbiased android experience. My experience with the device has really been that of a true Nexus device. I Received an update as soon as I turned it on and signed in.
I absolutely love the feel of it. It has that heft that makes it feel like a quality product. The glass back of it is up to the owner. Some love it and some hate it. I personally like it, but hey that’s me. The one thing I ABSOLUTELY can’t stand is the fact that it doesn’t have a removable battery. I use my phone like I freaking breathe, so I have to constantly leave it on the charge. +Dan McDermott and +Kim Beasley, two people that I know have a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 have the capability to change battery, and speaking of the Note 2 brings up my only other negative about the Nexus. The SIZE. I wish it was bigger.
Another thing a lot of people hate about it is the lack of “native” LTE support, but I’m with T-Mobile, so that doesn’t bother me. I was about to put all my effort into getting a Note 2, BUT that Nexus name carries weight and when it’s time for Google to push the next OS I know which device is FIRST in line to get it.
