The only part of it thats an upgrade is the OS.
The screen is awesome too (1280x720, 4.65"), and the fact that it is an unlocked pentaband is awesome. If you don't use the missing SD slot, it would be stupid for it to be a dealbreaker for you. It seems you buy a phone for the specs instead of the use. The camera on the Nexus is a nice upgrade from the Nexus S and they chose that camera for the instant shutter if you haven't noticed. A big complaint on camera phones is that it takes forever to take and pic and the point of a camera phone is to capture unique moments, which makes the camera more practical.
The only real downgrade is the missing SD slot that you don't use. Everything else is either an upgrade or a tie, except the camera which to me is a downgrade, but is circumstantial since many people will find it more practical
If you compare it to the SII LTE, the LTE will have a more powerful processor, but that doesn't really matter
