Great looking phone and I would have seriously considered buying it. However I need at least 32GB storage capacity and/or a card slot and as we in the Uk only seem to be getting the 16GB version, I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to buy it.
How naive/ignorant do you have to be to offer a 16GB, non-expandable capacity handset that is A) a premium device and that B) offers 1080p video recording? It's like trying to fit the Terminator trilogy on a floppy disk.
Apple do offer a 32GB and 64GB handset (at a complete joke of a premium), and where you can get the Galaxy Nexus 32GB I'm sure that will have the same cost issue at least for a few months.
I am not impressed :-(

I'll rather wait for a better build phone - Motorola or HTC with ICS than buying this model. Or better yet - wait for custom roms based on ICS...

Guess why Samsung uses the metals for their mid-range handsets. Have a clue.

Cheap lump of plastic. Apart from the screen nothing premium about it. Will Samsung ever learn?

I am hesitating between Galaxy S II 16 GB and Galaxy Nexus 32 GB ...

But, you know what? I'll wait for the Galaxy S III ... not having sd card option bothers me a lot ... :-(

At the same, time, not having the buttons for a "bigger" scree is really good!

When every some one buys the nexus can you show up that the light hidden under the 3 on screen buttons can light up & be used as Notification Lights & upload to youtube to show us that it works??? Apparently.
