To be honest, it was a big change in terms of interface and whatnot, but I'm getting used to it. The phone itself is pretty buggy sometimes and not as refined as the iPhones. Also, the battery life is atrocious. Like, abysmal.
If it weren't for the 4G and big screen, I'd probably have run back to my old iPhone by now.
At this point, though, I'll probably end up getting the next iPhone.
Another thing that's REALLY irking me is that the Nexus is supposed to be Google's flagship phone -- thus, it should be getting updates first, and fast. But ever since that update that came out in December after its release, there has not been a single update to address any issues/bugs for the LTE Nexus. The GSM version already has 4.0.4 I think, but we still haven't gotten anything. There were promises of 4.0.3 coming out in March to address signal issues and whatnot, and it's already May and nothing has happened.
If you've played around with it in the store and absolutely like it, then you should get it. If all you've done is tinkered around with it for a couple minutes and think it looks nifty and pretty, then really try it out. If you're a heavy user, do expect to go through data fast and do not expect your battery to last a day.
