For a decent display, good performance, Android ICS - go for Galaxy Nexus [It was my last phone]

For excellent build quality, Android ICS, and super fast performance - go for One X [I wouldn't go for it as HTC is not my cup of tea otherwise an excellent phone nonetheless]

All 3 excellent phones to choose from!

Just a little info: Different retailers are distributing different box bundles; some have tags, others have Micro-HDMi cables included.

Anything on the battery life yet? 1750 mAh does sound a bit meager for a phone with these specs.

Just got this today, using it alongside my 4s, no complaints so far. Screen quality is great, disagree with what you said about viewing angles, I think they are very good and much better than iPhone. It still has a way to go to Replace the 4s, but glad I chose it over the sgs2

Xperia S - Gaming on a larger, HD screen

Appreciating the fact that the internal rendering done on the system is in HD

The fact that the USB and HDMI ports are separate helps a lot too, evidenced by the controller (though it doesn't work with all games)

To compare this phone to my old SGS2 lets see..
-SGS2 is like holding a soap bar
-Xperia is has a much sharper screen, but needs squinting
-1080p videos records on my SGS2 is constantly trying to focus, not a problem in the Xperia
