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
Conclusion: The Galaxy Nexus has a trump card: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which, in itself, is a magnetic feature. Developers have worked hard to optimize the Galaxy Nexus’ software and hardware so that the device can deliver smooth-sailing performance–and it does. It has great software, coupled with great hardware, particularly its dual-core processor and HD screen.
Excerpt: Ever since the announcement of the HTC Nexus One in late 2009, I've been an Android fan. I had wanted a smartphone, but having never been an Apple fan, I was reticent to embrace the iOS platform and this seemed to tick all the boxes. Once I got the phone in my hand some months later, I was pretty much in love - and I've not looked back. Unfortunately, this brings me to the only real downside of the phone, and the one part reviewers have picked on - and rightly so.
Conclusion: While all of the early reviews of the GSM/UMTS version of the Google Galaxy Nexus out of Europe were full of superlatives and the written equivalent of high-fives, I had only modest expectations for the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon. I dislike Android 3.x Honeycomb that much, but I'm floored by Ice Cream Sandwich, to be honest. I'm also in love with the the HD resolution display on the Galaxy Nexus.
