isnt it the size of a moon?
I can give a full and whole hearted recommendation to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus....its awesome
isnt it the size of a moon?
Im due for an upgrade for Jan any pros and cons about the phone from your experience?
It came out top overall on Gadget Show's Top 5 Smart Phones last night too
EDIT: apart from ease of use, the iPhone won that (as you might expect) but that shouldn't put us geeks off one "reviewer" had never used a smart phone before, one was an Apple lover and one was an Android lover... personally I think they should have gotten 3 smart phone noobs to review...

Weird, was just about to post people's recommendations for a phone but I'm after something specific.
Does the phone have GPS - and if so, would one be able to upload maps to to it ala tom tom thus negating the need to connect to 3g (or whataver data band) to use it?
So far the only con i can find is, its rather big, but the 720p Screen makes that bit worth while, Android 4 now has proper Proxy Settings avaliable in the menu and its on a per connection basis and not an over all setting. The phone is lightning fast, with no overlayed front end out of the box. The screen is very clear, the touch response is instant. The camera app is amazing, zero shutter lag is very good, the flash is ultra bright (3LED set) and the sweep panorama is very good.
Face unlock isn't that good because if you move even slightly it wont unlock, but really thats just a gimmick so apple cant they did it first.
Im very impressed by the ease of setup out of the box, only about 3/4 screens long and very simple. It took some getting used to as i had an iPhone previously so it was a big change for me, but i rate it higher than the iphone already after 1day of use.

Got one due in February, waiting to see what HTC do with Android 4.
@Disaster i believe you can get a GPS navigator that has built in maps, i've not really looked yet but i do know TomTom and Navigon have android apps which use pre-downloaded in-app maps

Im due an upgrade beginning of January, I already had the galaxy nexus down as my next phone, in fact halfway through my current contract I had already decided that my next phone was going to be the nexus around at my upgrade time.

Just found this blog post explaining it in more detail: “Download map area” added to Labs in Google Maps for Android - Official Google Mobile Blog
EDIT: just to quickly add, I have successfully used that feature so can confirm it works
Top intel, I'm due an upgrade this month
Was really happy with my HTC Nexus One- until I dropped it in Wickes and smashed the screen.
Might look at the Samsung Nexus as a feasible replacement (Mrs Joe has the Samsung Galaxy which I absolutely loathe)
