Counter intuitively, it turns out in the UK you actually get better buying rights (with regards to returns) by purchasing online, thank you EU. Amazon tend to have the best returns policy that I can think of. Furthermore high street stores where I live don't have very many, if any at all, units on live display - and people wonder why high street stores are going bust

When My Galaxy SII drops out of contract I'll probably pick up a Nexus 4.
I also had long-term use of a 1st-gen Samsung Galaxy Tab (office loaner that seemed to live with me) and whilst it was fine I was annoyed with the delayed software update and Samsung additions.
Samsung Sense is probably the least intrusive of the Android re-skins, but no re-skin is worth the hassle, in my opinion. I get the feeling that vendor modifications to stock Android are there for their benefit, not ours.
I will be sticking with Nexus products in future, having now used both the Nexus 4 and the nexus 7. Zero manufacturer bloat, 100% timely software updates, no silliness that requires rooting to undo.

This is all true, you can workaround many of the interface quirks by rooting your device, but a lot of people don't like doing that.
I did like CM when I tried it but went back to Touchwiz once ICS was available.
