Samsung Galaxy Nexus Review: In Depth
5 December 2013
Conclusion: Purpose built for Ice Cream Sandwich, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus works harmoniously with its operating system. The button-less OS is showcased by its curved, smooth fascia. With its large HD Super AMOLED screen the form complements the engaging new Ice Cream Sandwich widgets and with the slightly lower resolution camera, takes pictures astoundingly quickly. Despite a volume dropping issue facing specific handsets, we can comfortably say we’re impressed.
Pros: Pure Android is much improved, Beautiful, HD Super AMOLED display, Light for its size
Cons: Not as solid as other flagship phones, Camera suffers at night, Volume drop bug affecting some users
Gumdrop Cases Drop Tech Series Review For Nexus 7 And Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0
3 November 2013
Excerpt: Like I mentioned before, the Drop Tech Series looks quite a lot like a tire’s tread, and that is definitely to give the case a more “ruggedized” or tough look. The Drop Tech cases utilize a dual layer design to maximize the protection given to your device, in this case either the 2012 Nexus 7 or the newer Tab 3 7.0.
Excerpt: Google Galaxy Nexus - The first Jelly Bean phone Update: Read my Android Jelly Bean 4.1 on the Galaxy Nexus Review here My Nexus S was pretty much my go-to phone and was working perfectly until I was experiencing some button “issues” (which mysteriously disappeared after a few days). I was in the market for a new phone. The HTC One X looked appealing to me because the polycarbonate material used on it looked like the one from the Lumia 900.
Summary: As with the Verizon and the unlocked version, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Sprint has a lot going for it: a brilliant screen, a powerful processor and the latest Android 4.0 operating system. However, at the moment, its 3G-only speeds are significantly slower than competing 4G phones on the other three major carriers.
Pros: Gorgeous HD screen, Speedy performance, Powerful Android 4.0 OS
Cons: 3G-Only speeds until Sprint launches LTE, Very short battery life
Conclusion: First and foremost, if you’re a Sprint customer who simply can’t wait any longer to experience the bountiful features associated with Ice Cream Sandwich, you should no doubt check out the Samsung Galaxy Nexus . However, bear in mind that the handset is brandishing a $200 on-contract price, which seems normal at first, but considering that it’s essentially a 5-month old model, we actually would’ve liked to see it come in at a lower price point.
Pros: Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, Still has an attractive display, 4G LTE enabled
Cons: Sluggish performance, Choppy web browsing, Poor quality video recording, Poor battery life, Low signal strength
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is Google’s latest Nexus smartphone, and it comes with a range of impressive specifications, plus the latest version of Google’s mobile OS, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Pros: Incredible screen, Super-fast performance, Beautiful and thought-out interface
Cons: Poor video recording, Unimpressive design and construction
Conclusion: This is almost comical at this point, but the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is my favorite Android device in the world. Easily replacing the HTC Rezound, the Motorola DROID RAZR, and Samsung Galaxy S II, the Galaxy Nexus champions in a brand new version of Android that pushes itself further than almost any other mobile OS in the industry.
