I personally very much enjoy the phone. I have had many phones over my time. I started out with a Droid Eris > Moto Droid > Droid X > HTC Thunderbolt > VZW Galaxy Nexus > GSM Galaxy Nexus > Nexus 4.
Out of all those phones, I still am not sure which phone I prefer more. The GSM Nexus or the Nexus 4. The feel of the GNex in my hand was always great. But the Galaxy Nexus FEELS so great, and the processor in the Nexus is second to none, in my opinion.
Hope this helps!
