The Nexus seems good and I think is what Android was originally looking for, but seriously, only a 5 megapixel camera?? I don't use my camera much but when I'm on vacation it's nice to use my Dinc since I have it anyway. Hoping something gets announced at CES next week. Also know HTC is rumored to have a quad-core soon, hoping real soon.
As per the fight between Ginge and rawr86, apple is not the way to go! Apple has the same issues with battery life. Apple is way too controlling with their phone and apps. Although this does fix the issue android has with updates.
5mp is plenty. This is what 5MP looks like
, it's a 5mp of White behind 4mp of gray. Be sure to zoom in. Do you really need more than that from your phone? (the 8mp would only give you an image 25% bigger). For the same image size (lets say a 4x6 photo), all other things being equal you can't tell the difference between the 2 resolutions.
Besides, there are far more important aspects to consider. The lens on the camera is probably the most important, then the sensor itself. Does it produce good colors, does it work well in various light conditions, etc.
Here is another good discussion about this.
And I just to add to you're point. If you don't like the battery life on the iPhone, you're pretty well SOL. Your ONLY option is to charge it. With the Android phones, you can almost certainly find a larger battery that works with you're phone. If you don't want a larger battery, you can buy multiple batteries and a charger and swap them out as needed.
