Samsung Galaxy Nexus Review
5 December 2011
Excerpt: If you've been paying attention to Android smartphones lately, you know there's one device that people have been talking about and eagerly anticipating for a few months now. That phone is the Galaxy Nexus. The reason this phone is so hot is because it is the first smartphone in the US to run Android 4.0, better known perhaps as Ice Cream Sandwich.
Pros: First phone with Android 4.0, Gorgeous 4.65 inch Super AMOLED Contour Display (1280 x 720), 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 1GB RAM, 4G LTE connectivity
Cons: No microSD card slot, No support for Google Wallet out of the box (but it is installable)
Excerpt: For three years in a row now, Google has released a flagship Nexus-branded phone in collaboration with another OEM to show off the best of Android. These releases happen to correspond to the unveiling of a new version of Android. These devices often represent the state-of-the-art in terms of smartphone technology, and, characteristically, they have no third-party interface, but rather use the stock Android interface.
Pros: + Android 4.0 is fast, polished, and innovative
Conclusion: on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is fine. The handset is equipped with a decent earpiece, which manages to emit some natural tones. On the other end of the line, things to sound a bit more robotic, especially when the Nexus user is at a loud location, when the noise-cancellation would kick in. But the mic is also quite strong, so you'll surely be heard on the other side. Unfortunately, the loudspeaker of the device is on the quieter side.
Pros: Incredible screen, Super-fast performance, Beautiful and thought-out interface
Cons: Poor video recording, Unimpressive design and construction
Summary: Google's Nexus line is meant to set the bar for what an Android phone should be, and the new Galaxy Nexus does not disappoint. The Galaxy Nexus is sleek and attractive, with a thin, light body and a beautiful HD display. It's screamingly fast, too, delivering what may be the best overall performance of any mobile device available.
Summary: The Galaxy Nexus isn't just a new Android flavor of the week. Android Ice Cream Sandwich represents a big step forward for the OS in terms of usability and polish. The physical design itself may be too big for some, but Samsung has done a nice job keeping the weight and thickness down to counterbalance the big and beautiful 720p screen.
Pros: Big and beautiful 720p Super AMOLED screen, Sleeker more intuitive Android 4.0 software, Very swift performance, Fastest camera in a phone yet, Best-in-class multitasking, Robust photo editing tools
Cons: Back cover feels flimsy, No Facebook integration with People app, Type with voice feature doesn't always work
Summary: Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is a fantastic smartphone, and it's definitely one of the best devices currently on sale. It offers more power than you'll ever need, a screen that puts rivals to shame, and loads of features. Only the size will put some users off. If you're not one of them, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is well worth saving up for.
