Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Sprint)
Now that this year's Nexus is out from LG, it's no surprise that last year's model, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, is seeing heavy discounts. Sprint is offering the handset for free, after users sign a contract and send in a $50 mail-in rebate online and through its stores through Sunday, November 25.

The good: The Samsung Galaxy Nexus marries the power of the Ice Cream Sandwich with a stock Andorid OS. The phone's beautiful screen and performance are top-notch, and unlike its Verizon counterpart, the Google Wallet payment app is onboard.
The bad: The Galaxy Nexus lacks a slot for expandable memory, the 5-megapixel camera isn't Samsung's best, and battery life could be longer. We’re also still waiting for phone’s connection to Sprint’s LTE network.
The bottom line: Though Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus retains the cache of being an official showpiece for Ice Cream Sandwich, it's no longer the only kid on the block. The fact that Sprint’s LTE network is not operational yet doesn’t help the phone, either.
