I've had the Galaxy Nexus since April- honestly, it's the best phone I've ever had. Especially since it was updated to Jellybean, it's as smooth as butta. Seamless integration with my laptop(access to the file system), waay more free apps than Apple, a big damn screen (I LAUGH at the 4" iP5 screensize), HD video recording, not having to go thru iTunes to move media files onto and off of my phone- I could go on.
I admit that the phone's body has a less-polished feel than the iPhone, but I've always cared far more about what's under the hood than the candy-apple paint job. To each his own, I suppose.
