Samsung Galaxy Nexus Review
23 November 2011
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.
Summary: Google and Samsung together announced the Galaxy Nexus that runs over Android 4.0 Icecream sandwich version. Breaking all the rumours both the brands have confirmed that the device will hit the markets in Europe, USA and Asia by next month. The Samsung smartphone sports a charming 4.65-inches HD Super AMOLED Plus display screen. The gadget is powered by a 1.2GHz dual core processor, which makes it actually speedy multitasking.
Summary: Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the new kid on the Google Android block. The world’s first Ice Cream Sandwich phone – the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is a pleasure treat. If the Nexus One was a good smartphone, the Nexus S can be called noting short of extraordinary. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is a birth child of the Samsung-Google partnership and comes with technical expertise from both. It combines Samsung technology with Google’s new OS – the Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
Conclusion: Ultimately, what we took most from the Galaxy Nexus was a sense of renewed excitement about the other Ice Cream Sandwich phones that will appear over the coming weeks and months. The Nexus is ‘pure’ Android, it is fast due to its lack of customisations and will no doubt be first to receive updates in future.
Summary: We've had the good fortune of spending several days with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (previously and erroneously known as the Samsung Nexus Prime), and we've had a chance to get intimate with both the hardware, which is the work of Samsung, and version 4.0 of Android, codenamed Ice Cream Sandwich. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is big. It has a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display, which is perfectly readable in bright sunlight, and is running at 1280x720-pixel resolution.
Conclusion: The Galaxy Nexus isn't the most powerful Android phone around. It's not the most capable, either. But if you're after a "pure" Android experience, unsullied by the likes of Samsung's TouchWiz or HTC's Sense interfaces, then the Galaxy Nexus is a solid choice. Its massive display looks fantastic, but you pay the price in battery life, so don't expect to take it to a festival and have it last all weekend.
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is a top notch smartphone with good hardware and a stunning screen. It is so far the only handset to boast Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which is the main reason to buy it. It has limited storage though and there are better cameras out there, if these are important to you. Users are also recommended to wait until the incoming alert bug is fixed before splashing out on the device.
