Got a new Galaxy Nexus phone (thanks! +Sundar Pichai) and am just loving it. It has the best "hand feel" of any phone I've ever encountered. It's big, with a bright, clear screen, but incredibly light. Much lighter than my Nexus S, which I dearly loved, but am already not missing.

The ice-cream sandwich UI has so many enhancements I can't begin to list them all. I love the new way address book searches are presented; I like the new windows button on the bottom button bar (though I miss the menu button, which has now migrated to being a softkey at different places in various apps); I like the app folders. I also like the way it auto-detects wifi and lets you log in without having to go down into settings. I'm sure I'll discover more great features as I go along.

The camera is great. The lack of zoom was the one thing I really didn't like about the Nexus S camera; that's fixed here. It even does panoramas.

And of course, I love the way the phone becomes yours simply by logging in. Almost everything comes over automatically. (You lose your text message history, and your call history.) This, of course, assumes that you've set your phone to be automatically backed up to the cloud.

Oddly, while your apps are remembered and automatically reloaded, the phone doesn't remember what you had on the home screen, so you do have to move them back there. And oddly, at least two of my apps didn't make it over: foursquare and google voice. However, it was the work of a moment to reload them.

In short, I haven't been as pleased with a new device since I got my original iphone. Google and Samsung really nailed this one.
