With all the new features of the Galaxy Nexus announced (including a completely revamped UI, new features like Android Beam and Face Recognition) are you feeling impressed or let down by this new phone? I know many people were hoping for some sort of Siri-replacement or maybe some feature that beams you to mars, but I've been impressed by what I've seen so far. What about you?

I love everything: the font, the new lockscreen, the design, the refreshed calendar app, the fact that you can now search emails while offline, the face recognition, fast camera...yeah. It's love. Even the camera zoom is better.

I'm liking the new things like face recognition, fast camera etc though i'm a little disappointed a few of the features they deem as "new"can already be done on my sensation.

To me the nexus could easily be a sensation with Sense 3.1 (new look etc) and a few new apps. Does the nexus add anything more under the hood to set it apart? Can't remember the tech specs atm.

That looks pretty awesome for a 5mp camera, gonna have to go out and check this Sensations 8mp 1080p camera can do better. At least it should lol.

@Preston: Megapixels definitely aren't everything. You've also got to have a good light sensor. The Galaxy Nexus camera has a lot going for it. Other than that, it's got Android Beam, GPS lock-on, Face Recognition and a completely re-vamped OS. I think it's worth the hype.

The Galaxy Nexus contains a barometer which measures how high up you are, which is an important factor for locking-on to GPS signals. For a more complete explanation, check out this post I wrote:
