Samsung Galaxy Nexus Review
2 February 2012
Summary: After spending some quality time with the phone, we have to admit that it didn’t really blow us away, as we had hoped it would. It’s a very good phone, yes, but it left us asking for more. ICS is a definite plus point here, as it’s a very stable (after the update), fast as a stabbed rat and simply gorgeous to look at. Right from the new font, the animations to the new colour style, everything about it gives it a fresh and appealing feel.
Excerpt: Here’s a piece of news for you, a review of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus over at T-Break. The team over at T-Break seems to really like it as they’ve given it their Recommended Award with only some small issues lists as cons like it’s a big phone, which is a personal preference really. They’re more than happy with it, so if you’re interested, hit the link to read their full review.
Conclusion: There’s plenty of hype surrounding the Galaxy Nexus, and rightly so. Being packed with Android Ice Cream Sandwich not only sweetens the deal, but the phone’s synergy of hardware and software is something of a marvel. Under the phone’s hood is a 1.2GHz Dual-Core Processor that accounts for the phone’s smooth performance and slick presentation, along with the 1GB of RAM.
Conclusion: I had a blast with this phone and loved using it. However, sending it back wasn’t as difficult as I imagined it would be and I mostly certainly will not be entertaining purchasing one at this time. On a 24 month contract, as I already stated, will be where this device sells most and will probably where it is least recommended.
Conclusion: For Google, one of the major points of Nexus has always been to provide a stable piece of reference hardware for it to cater a major OS release to. Each device has married a major revision of the Android platform to the latest stable hardware. That isn't to say that the hardware choices are always bleeding edge, but rather modern and logical next steps for the platform.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is probably the best Android smartphone we have tested to date, the 4.65 inch Super AMOLED display is excellent, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich makes the device a joy to use. Everything seems fast on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and the dual core 1.2GHz processor makes everything run fast and smoothly, along with Android 4.0.
Excerpt: Android fans have been eagerly waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus because it is the first device on the market powered by Android 4.0. Otherwise known as Ice Cream Sandwich, this new version of Android merges the tablet (Honeycomb) and smartphone (Gingerbread) versions of Google’s popular OS into one version that will be used across both types of devices.
Pros: No bloatware
Cons: Does not support USB mass storage mode, Macs require a file manager app to browse files via USB, No microSD card

Excerpt: With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus , Google's third Nexus Android smartphone, Samsung has also announced the upcoming launch of some handy accessories which make the use of the Galaxy Nexus even more convenient. For road warriors, Samsung is launching its Galaxy Nexus Card Dock Kit, designed for home and office use is the Galaxy Nexus Desktop Dock and made for the home use is the Galaxy Nexus HDMI Dock.
Excerpt: While you may have already seen our extensive review of the GSM version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus , we’ve also got one that uses Verizon’s high-speed LTE 4G network. There aren’t a huge amount of differences, but we thought it would be good to give you a different perspective on Google’s latest flagship device and also their latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
Pros: + Android 4.0 has a new, clean look
Cons: - Verizon’s LTE network isn’t as reliable as 3G, yet
