Question LG Motion VS Galaxy Nexus

How does it stack against the LG Motion?

General - Network - 2G/3G and 4G LTE compatible (USA market)
Both phones are 4G LTE , Verizon has a average of 40 MB Down , 25 Up in my area

_______________
Galaxy Nexus - 720 x 1280 Super AMOLED display (316 PPI)
LG Motion - hVGA display (165 PPI)


Memory
___________
GN - 16 GB
Motion - 5 GB

Motion - 5 Megapixel LED Flash , 0.3 VGA front facing camera

Android OS
_______________

Specs
_________________

So is the extra $20 worth it? and pay tons more a month (Well about $35 more and I still don't get unlimited data! over the 55$ Unlimited plan of MetroPCS)

At this point, it's more about your monthly data plan from Verizon vs MetroPCS. If you need to save money for the plan, then the LG is worth it. I couldn't handle a 3.5" screen after using my Gnex, but it's up to you which is more important. $200 for no contract on Verizon is a steal IMO (and if the BOGO offer is true, even better).

The Galaxy Nexus would be a great deal with that extra $20. I wonder what is hindering you from getting that? It has better displays and better hardware.
