Did post this last night and it didnt get added, was on vodafone at the time, so there you go!
Galaxy Nexus 3
Home Toased Rom
NOT as good as my SG2 handsets, but Google/Samsung DID have the choice of fitting the plus screen into the GN3 pre-production!
No probs, pixels and prints more than good enough
Blazingly fast compared to a SG2, weird but true
Case Heat -
Hardly any compared to all my other smarties
Stock rom - 21 hours flat out all on single charge
Toasted rom - 23.5 hours flat our on single charge
Mmmm now this is odd, SG2 next to it, running same apps, start up sequences, etc seems faster
WOW! super fast, no lag, quicker to load than one of my 8 cores on a 40mb line, very optimized - LOVE IT!
Errors / Reported Rom faults
Have had NO errors on the stock rom, have had no errors on the toasted rom - so no errors on volume or reboot etc
Cannot give a full overview, as waiting on 2 more GN3's from VF to arrive (yawn!) so will be running a few tests with the stock rom GN3 from VF and the home toasted GN3 rom I have made
Apart from the screen not looking so good in sunlight and a bit dull in dark clubs / rooms etc...
Can honestly say the Galaxy Nexus 3 BLOWS everything out of the water, currently on the market, with quad core APM chips going into some smarties in feb2012, which in all honestly, apart from serious mobile gamers needs, is a tad overkill, there is no reason NOT to buy the best smartie out there guys and gals...
Subject to VF letting you have one

There's no such thing as the Nexus 3
And custom ROMs tend to be 'baked' by a Chef - not toasted
I'm being a little pedantic but meh!
ROM: 3.14.401.31 (JRO03C)
HBOOT: 1.39.0000 | Recovery: Stock
Radio: 5.1204.162.29 | Kernel: Stock

well i like simple math
google nexus one - first google nexus i got
google nexus s - second google nexus i got
google nexus galaxy samsung prime megatron - third nexus i got
GN3! plus its easier to type!
i like toasting as its lighter than baking, rip the ###### out the rom you do not need and no need to over cook it :-)
shame the mods are not allowed to be a bit pedantic buddy, would be more fun than just moaning at them all the time LOL

GN is easier to type than GN3 !!!
I get closer to suicidal every time you call it the GN3, do you want to have manslaughter on your hands??
Lolol so do I. this is the fiest Galaxy nexus so how can it be GN3? u can get by with Nexus 3 but not GN3.

I brought that up in another thread.
NABS informed me that it won't show your details until after the first bill is produced (even though on line it shows everything current)
As for the crashing, it will be the app needs tweaking for ics

1. When viewing a light grey screen like this one on the forum they can see very feint lines / its grainy?
2. When viewing pics youve taken in gallery the seem to display and then take a split aecond extra to display the colours properly. Difficult to explain. Its like they are first displayed with a filter on them which is removed block by block .

Got mine yesterday, and its great. Just changed from an iphone 3G and I love android so far (of course my iphone was pretty out of date I guess). The only thing thats annoyed me (and I've seen someone else mention this somewhere) is the download failure every time the screen turns off - very annoying for big files, you just have to sit there watching it. Hopefully a software bug that will be fixed.
@dangerm0uth: Just had a look at the pictures in the gallery, they look fine although they do change slightly after loading - they just seem to get a bit sharper.

I don't have either of these issues. I have just closely inspected light greys and other colours on the screen without any lines or grains.
I have also repreatedly opened and closed images from my galery with nothing like what you are talking about, just insant opening of the images actually.

The grainy whites and greys on low brightness settings are normal for this phone due to the type of screen used.
The AMOLED screen uses organic diodes which have more noise than a LCD screen so in low brightness your eyes are able to see the noise of each diode but on a higher or maximum brightness your eyes can't see the noise.
It is only really a minor issue because the AMOLED screen trumps over everything in terms of colour vibrancy, saturation, contrast and deep blacks.
