  1. I want a phone with new features. Something to upgrade to.
    NFC is part of that – over the length of time i’ll have the phone it may gain traction and allow me to share things more easily with others [though it might find more use with rfid tags in shops]
    The 720p screen is an obvious upgrade from my 3.7″ one.
    Android 4.0 is the catchall for faceunlock, voice typing and many other new things so that’s the obvious choice.

  2. Interesting that the feature that excites the most is ICS – does this mean the interest in the Galaxy Nexus will lessen once other phones/tablets get ICS?

    The speedy camera is certainly an attraction as is NFC.

    Personally, I would prefer the Samsung Galaxy Note with the “optional” NFC and ICS. It seems that it will get ICS but the NFC option does not seem to be available here in Europe. However, the Note does have a card slot which, for whatever reason, Samsung have omitted from the Galaxy Nexus.

    How much would a card slot have added to the cost? Shame it wasn’t included just to save a few cents!

    • Very good point NameTechGuy, and I think it’s even more relevant now that the Galaxy Nexus has been delayed much longer than most anticipated.
