I own 2 of these phones. One of them is still working, about a year after I bought it. The other one stopped working 6 months after purchase. I consider a working product to be a requirement for a 2+ star rating.
The battery life seems ridiculously short, although these are my first smart phones, so maybe this is typical.
I remember my old Sprint LG and Samsung flip phones going days without a recharge, whereas the Galaxy dies in 8 hrs without a charge. Turning off wireless probably extends the battery life somewhat, but actually talking on the phone (which is what people used to do on phones in the 80's), drains the battery much faster.
My main complaint is that one of the phones broke. It was never dropped or violated in any way. It had a nice purple cover and the original Google screen protector. It stopped turning on after 6 months. The first thing I tried was plugging in the battery from my working phone, but no luck. Then I tried all the internet tricks: doing a hard reset, plugging the charger into various orifices, shorting the battery, calling Samsung's customer "support" line, talking to the phone in a stern voice, but nothing... just a battery icon and then a blank screen. Smart phones? More like dumb phones.
HTC ONE X:
The Good: Quad core 1.5Ghz (the european version.. the att us version is dual core), fairly priced now, 1GB ram, 32GB, 8MP cam, FullHD video, GORGEOUS huge display, SenseUI is gorgeous and Sense4.0 is speedy and stable, rooting community likes the device, so theres plenty of development for it.
The Bad: No memory card expansion slot... that's a MAJOR problem for me... NO removable battery (just as bad).
SAMSUNG GALAXY SIII:
The Good: Samsung seems to have done an excellent job on the TouchWiz interface, 16gb storage WITH microSD slot (for up to 64GB more!), 2GB ram (on the dual core, or a 1GB ram on a quad core), newest phone on the market, great display. Rooting/romming community response is uncertain, but this is a massively commercial device, so Im sure theres tons of devs out there working on this thing.
The Bad: price is still through the roof, its a Samsung... I hated the fact that they offer either a 2GB ram w/ Dual core OR a 1GB ram w/Quad core. I'm certain a 2GB ram dual core is way better though; but still, didnt like how theres no way to get the "abolute monster phone".
SAMSUNG GALAXY NEXUS:
The Good: Cheapest of the 3. Its a Nexus phone! You get googles updates first. You get the full Android Experience. No bloatware. Sleek design, feels great on your hands (and pocket). Removable / replaceable battery.
The Bad: NO memory card slot. ONLY 16GB on the GSM version. NOT gorilla glass. Apparently Corning (manufacturer of gorilla glass) can't do the curvature on the end of this phone. But samsung states that its scratch resistant. After a full month or normal usage, theres not a single scratch, and I usually have it in my pocket along with coins and sometimes even keys.
Note how "it's a samsung" is not a "con" for the Galaxy Nexus. As I hardly even notice it being a samsung phone. It feels nice and sturdy.
I bought the Galaxy Nexus for ONE simple reason: It was the cheapest. I couldn't rule any of those 3 phones out, so, if these 3 phones were equally as desirable by me, and one of them was cheaper by a significant amount, THAT was a great reason to get it. And let me tell you; I LOVE this phone. Wouldn't trade it.
The version I bought was the international Galaxy Nexus, i9250. It is the version that can be easily converted between software versions using the Factory Images available on the Android site.
In short, this is a great device. It does not have the best construction quality (noticeable, rough edges at one side of the front), it's a Samsung after all, but when it launched it had everything, including an HD screen with a resolution that, even today (feb 2014), the iPhone can't match. The PenTile arrangement didn't bother me at all, and images were crisp enough. Of course they were not as crisp as a full RGB HD, but it was better than what other phones had to offer in the OLED camp. That said, the OLED at that resolution was marvelous to look at (today we are spoiled by 1080p screens), especially because the unmatched contrast made possible by black pixels that actually are black when black. :)
Burn out of the blue pixels still are not a pronounced issue. You can't normally notice, only under specific backgrounds. It is much, much less than the Nexus S I had before it, and most of it is also transitory (disappears after a few seconds). Some of it is permanent, however. As I said, it does not bother me even today.
More than 2 years later, I'm moving towards a Nexus 5, but this phone is still impressive and can handle basically all apps except those that need graphics performance (like games). Also, this phone received the last official update last year, so it won't have (officially, at least) Android 4.4/KitKat. However, regarding compatibility, you shouldn't have problems for a long time. Since Android 4.3/Jelly Bean already had major components that apps use in a daily-basis, this isn't, by any means, a compatibility problem anywhere near the break that 3.0;3.2/Honeycomb and 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich were. The performance is also decent even today: on a daily basis, it is smoother than many higher end phones that were launched after the Galaxy Nexus. The fact that the Nexus line software is slim, not bloated, also helps.

Unfortunately the battery life is bad. It won't last a day without recharging. Not even with light use.Read more
