Organize your home screen with folders.
Android Ice Cream Sandwich Operating System
The Galaxy Nexus runs the Android 4.0 operating system (dubbed Ice Cream Sandwich), which adds powerful new ways of communicating and sharing while improving on the best Android features: easy multitasking, rich notifications, customizable home screens, resizable widgets, and more.
The new Ice Cream Sandwich interface features an onscreen navigation bar that replaces the hardware buttons for Back, Home, and Menu found with older Android-powered phones. And with Google+ integration, you can video chat with groups of up to 9 friends as well as easily upload and share photos and videos. Other features include:
You can now unlock your phone with just your face using the Face Unlock option. It takes advantage of the front-facing camera and state-of-the-art facial recognition technology to register a face during setup and then to recognize it again when unlocking the device. Just hold your phone in front of your face to unlock (or use a backup PIN).
And the lock screen now lets you do more without unlocking. From the slide lock screen, you can jump directly to the camera for a picture or pull down the notifications window to check for messages. When listening to music, you can even manage music tracks and see album art.Home Screen Folders
Quickly access related apps right from the home screen by organizing apps and shortcuts into folders--just drag one app onto another to create a folder.Multitasking
Multitasking is even easier and more visual in Android 4.0. The Recent Apps button lets you jump instantly from one task to another using the list in the System Bar. The list pops up to show thumbnail images of apps used recently--tapping a thumbnail switches to the app.Voice Input
The new voice engine in Android 4.0 lets you dictate the text you want, for as long as you want, using the language you want. You can speak continuously for a prolonged time, even pausing for intervals if needed, and dictate punctuation to create correct sentences. As the voice input engine enters text, it underlines possible dictation errors in gray. After dictating, you can tap the underlined words to quickly replace them from a list of suggestions.
The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network allows you to download photos, apps, and games in seconds and entire movies in minutes. LTE (or Long Term Evolution provides significantly increased upload and download speeds over 3G networks, as well as significantly reduced latency (or lag time). Verizon Wireless expects 4G LTE average data rates to be 5-12 megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink and 2-5 Mbps on the uplink in real-world, loaded network environments.
With these blazing fast speeds, you'll be able to stream HD movies without the annoyance of constant pauses to buffer the video stream--as well as quickly download HD-quality movies right to your phone in minutes. Additionally, you'll be able to download a new song file in about 4 seconds or upload a photo to your favorite social networking site in about 6 seconds.
The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE mobile broadband network will also redefine the mobile office for business users. Business applications that used to require wired networks will be untethered forever, allowing you maximized productivity and efficiency while you're out of the confines of your office. Enhanced security lets you tap into most VPN networks with less waiting, and faster responsiveness enables you to upload 10 MB presentations back to your team in less than 25 seconds.

Call quality is adequate - no real complaints about the phone.
Battery life, is shorter than I feel it should be. After mild use (on and off browsing, no video, screen brightness low, on home wifi) my battery was at 15% after only 4 hours. This phone is not kind to battery under any level of use.
Performance is, frankly, terrible. I expect that an older phone will lag on apps and websites written for newer devices. This one stutters and hangs on the preloaded apps, to the point of often making me wait 10 seconds or more for the app drawer to open. Website performance is a lesson in patience. It seems especially to hang on anything using dynamic CSS. (Also called "any modern website") Basic blogs and Facebook are functional, anything with video results in significant waiting, and sites like Cheezburger or dumb slideshow sites are borderline unusable.
I expect poor performance on next gen content. This phone has poor performance on content from when it was new. Save another $40 and buy a MotoG.
No matter what I do, it doesn't see a network. I'm not talking WiFi I'm talking LTE, the Wifi is working fine and I was able to login to my google account just fine. The problem is with the LTE network, there are no bars showing and I am in the heart of Boston. All my phones have full bar reception...I added my sim card and still nothing happens. I even went through manually setting it up online with VW by changing my current phone EID to the Nexus (which isn't neccessary) but it still doesn't connect. It's like there is no antenna. I'm still hopeful that there's something I'm missing and it all can be corrected soon.
Okay, Part 2
Nothing I did could correct the problem I'm having. It doesn't see any Network and therefore, will not connect to Verizon. It also has the worst battery problem I've seen and the connector is questionable. Since the listing shows that they are currently out of stock I'm gonna have to return it.
