Sure thing. The Nexus has been getting discounts. If you can manage with the 128GB version and don't mind the size it's an excellent device. Wish HTC would have stayed with front facing speakers.
The size is not the biggest issue.
I just dont want to shell out cash if i can get a phone on verizon with an upgrade and trade in my old one.
And i still like the freedom of an sd card.
htc still has front facing but its just one on top now, still prefer the new setup of the speakers since the front is much nicer and the phone is not that tall
