As far as good camera-phones, MyTouch 4G Slide and any of the Galaxy S2 versions have great cameras.

I returned my nexus, even with apps the camera was just lacking and I use it around the city a lot. Not to mention the camera app itself kept force closing after a while and wouldnt let any camera app work until I restarted the phone. Ill wait and see for something else, honestly think that ICS was the best thing about the phone besides the screen.

But ICS is really nice. Its look and feel is a lot better than previous Android version! They're definitely starting to catch up to iOS with this version of Android.
LOL catch up. That's funny. iOS notifications are still the worst thing I've ever seen, even after they copied the Android pull down bar.

But to each their own.

Oh definitely. Isn't that how you're supposed to use it?

I may have gone overboard with "worst thing I've ever seen" statement, considering prior to iOS5, that was true, but I still prefer Android to iOS5 notification center.

I have an iPod touch so I get Google voice messages and schedule reminders. That's great I don't get a giant blue box over top of my text for notifications anymore, but I still find the Android notifications to be more informative (lists each notification and how many, etc.). Neither one has an intrusive notification system anymore.

ICS is nice but their previous phone OS is just bad. I'm not sure if it's mostly because of the front ends, but the HTC and Samsung devices I've played around a bit so far seemed unpolished and not really fast to user input. Pure Android 2.x might be faster but it lacks in polish and user experience. ICS is different though. I'm really curious to see if HTC and Samsung manage to break that again with their horrible front ends
I'm using Gingerbread on a 2 year old Droid X. Still runs great, and I don't know what you mean by polish... it's informative and fast. Do you mean it's not pretty like Apple products?

Yeah, I guess a phone that isn't 50% bezel makes too much sense.

It doesn't have polish if it doesn't have the same case after 6 generations of a phone.

I love the new Samsung commercials, they crack me up!

I still don't get what people keep saying that it isn't polished, or has stuttering, or isn't responsive to inputs. I don't have any of those, and I have used Android 2.0 (stuttered a bit), 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 and all of them work flawlessly.
