Funny this thread pops up when i am asking myself this very question. I would say not on Verizon. I understand I got a new phone the first with ICS and would have issues from the get go, that is expected for any new version of Android it can't be perfect for everyone.
BUT what the heck is up with waiting endlessly for updates? As someone who does not plan on rooting I was under the misguided impression that i would get the Nexus experience i.e. new android version and fast updates direct from Google not this backwards ridiculousness going on with Verizon.
Honestly i should have seen this coming considering the lack of ads for the GNEX on Verizon. I honestly would have waited and if possible left Verizon for a different carrier and gotten the phone then.
