thanks

It is inferior to the Galaxy S II (which will be just as loved by XDA, even if the Galaxy Nexus is a Google Experience device)

Why?
The glass is curved. It's NOT comfortable.
There is no SD card slot.
The screen is RGBG (yuck!) Pentile. (This will be the first thing you notice!)

Wait,I did not understand. What do you mean? Is it better than the SGS2?

Once the Samsung Galaxy S II does get Ice Cream Sandwich, it will be better than the Nexus, that's for sure.

I read on various blogs that ICS will be available on SGS II In first quarter 2012 but I believe it does not have NFC

I said that the Galaxy Nexus is worse than the SGS2.

I still prefer OMAP over any other chipset however...if it only had a better than that SGX540 GPU *sighs*

SGX 540 is a VERY POWERFUL GPU.

It just needs the right settings (kernel, driver, and overclocking). For instance the first 540's gave a performance that wasn't much greater than the 535's but the latest is close to Mali-400 performance.

I also prefer (trust) OMAP SoC's but Samsung's in-house units have proven to be just as good!

Btw, I prefer the curved display, its a small detail but it really is genious addition to the experience though some (a small *cough* minority) dont like them.
The 720p screen is dense enough that you hardly notice the Pentile layer (using the SGNOTE), though a SAMOLED+ with qHD resolution yields the same result.
The 4.6in size is perfect much better than 4.2in, but I prefer the 5.3in NOTE since my hands are LARRRRRGE!
