just a couple things from the review I dont agree with

The statement that the phone is not as customizable because of locked down UI from samsung is not completely correct to me. I threw ADW on mine and its easily a very customizable android phone and for sure less locked down than the AT&T version. Also the reviewer doesnt like that it looks like the iphone and I for one dont care for that but its not a negative to me either. I do however feel the at&t version looks just like the blackberry storm. One of my issues is the same as with HTC sense UI and its if you decide to use a different launcher like ADW or launcher pro then you cant use the custom widgets like Sense UI or Touchwiz 3.0 widgets. Battery life kills my nexus though so thats a plus. Another thing I noticed from where I work most of the time there is not much 3g signal so most times it will show edge or low 3g signal. The Samsung surprised me though with even 1 bar of 3g I was averaging 1000-1200kbs. Other than these points I pretty much agree with the reviewer. Cant wait for 2.2 to clear up some of the random laggyness the phone has once you load a ton of apps to it.
