Conclusion: Undeniably, Verizon Wireless customers are surely lucky because the Samsung Galaxy Nexus managed to make its landing this year – as opposed to being delayed to next year. Who cares that the carrier missed out with a Galaxy S II model of its own, well, customers have consolation knowing that the...
Pros: Clean, complete, and thought-out interface, Large & sharp looking display, Offers 4G LTE connectivity
Cons: Constantly losing 4G LTE connection, Poor battery life
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Verizon Wireless is one of our top picks for that carrier. Yes, 3G reception could be better, but Verizon says they're working on an update. And in the meantime, LTE works very well in our tests, data speeds on 3G are decent and voice quality is tops.
Pros: First phone with Android 4, fast and clean, great call quality.
Cons: 3G reception not among the best, battery life isn't great.
Excerpt: We review a lot of phones , tablets , gadgets, and gizmos at Digital Trends, but very few of them are unique. Most of the time, only one or two small features differentiate a new device from all that came before it, if that.
Pros: New Android Ice Cream Sandwich rocks, Fast camera shutter speed, Clean, buttonless design, Feels great to hold, 4G LTE, dual-core, and NFC included, Screen is big, but manageable
Cons: Battery life isn’t great, Many apps don't take advantage of swiping, Camera gets trigger happy, Contacts app still needs improving
