so....i have my nexus for about 1 month...when i got it i was like everyone else says a bit dissapointed by the battery life...that was with stock rom...but than i rooted as i always do,and flashed a custom rom(paranoid android)with a new kernel(trinity or zen series) and my battery life is excellent...no complaints anymore here...as a previous owner of sgs1,2 i consider the nexus to be a far far better device and compared to the s3 i actually could not find any weak spots...the device is absolutely superb with great build quality it doesn,t have the cheap factor of the s3 and s2,the screen is amazing,the camera even if it is a 5mpx camera is actually great you will notice only minor differences compared to the s2 and the videocamera is just beautiful...it has al that you need and it does all that with ease...the customization of the device is also great especially with custom roms...i for one dont like the onscreen buttons that come by default so i customized it in a way that they are very very small and i can use almost the entire screen...actually 4.6 inches out of the 4.65...and trust me it really makes a difference...being a nexus is a great advantage,being futureproofed for further software updates...and for those who complain about storage,just buy a otg cable and you can connect a external hard drive or usb drive and you can have all the memory you want...also audio quality is one of the best i have encountered especially when connected to headphones(i use sennheiser or akg) the loudspeaker is also good and can become better with add ons if you root the device...all in all this is a very good device and thats why i did not go for the s3,it isnt better than the nexus by much,is far expensive and cheapish and on the long run the nexus will be on the same level if not better than the s3...my oppinion....and now i use android 4.2 while the rest of the world will have to wait a little bit for this....all the best...regards from romania
I am really happy with my choice. My nexus has been upgraded to 4.2 now. One thing I noticed is unlocking the phone is super fast now. Also clock apps got some upgrades. Adding widgets in the year home screen is just awesome. So many features are yet to explore.. Overall Good. I am proud to be a GNex owner.

I am using this phone for the last 3 months and I personally feel that the battery backup is very good for this phone. For a moderate use, ie, o5-7 calls, 1-2hrs browsing, music, 10-15 photos, it will last easily 24 hrs. I am now running on JB4.2.

Dipen, 11 Nov 2012Hi, Is anyone tell me the launching date of Samsung nexus i9250 in India? I am confusing to bu... moreSG Nexus 9250 has been around for a year but was never officially released in India (and never will be..cos now anyways Nexus4 is almost out)
However, sellers in India have had imported models since May/June (brick&mortar stores used to keep it when it was new..now available only online)..now with the advent of Nexus4, they are clearing the stock. At the moment, it is selling for around INR 20500 ($370).
Galaxy Nexus is much better than GS2.
