Samsung Galaxy Nexus review
7 March 2012
Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy Nexus will rank as one of the year’s biggest smartphone launches, and it heralds the release of an operating system that will shape the course of 2012 as well. Android 4.0, or headline writer’s nightmare Ice Cream Sandwich , is Google’s update to their whole mobile OS, and the vision of their latest release is based around a single vision: ‘enchant me, simplify My life and make me awesome.’ The turbulent market means one bad release could be fatal for...
Pros: Beautiful screen, Ice Cream Sandwich, Fantastic power
Summary: I was utterly convinced that this device would be my next. Ice Cream Sandwich is easily the greatest incarnation of Android yet and it will be exciting to see where Google take it next.

Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy Nexus was the world's first phone to run Android 4.0: Ice Cream Sandwich and now just under a year later it's the first phone to run Android 4.1: Jelly Bean . It's an upgrade that keeps it as relevant as ever and we've updated our review to reflect the changes.
Conclusion: A majority of you might not have had the chance to check out Android Ice Cream Sandwich yet, but you should definitely check to see if the new OS can be installed on your smartphone. Upon turning the Samsung Galaxy Nexus on, we’re greeted with the lock screen, a screen that all you Android users should be familiar with by now. To unlock, a simple gesture of sliding the padlock outside of the circle will unlock the device.
Excerpt: In the mobile market, Nexus is synonymous with pure. It is the unadulterated version of Android exactly as Google intended it to be. Compared to other versions of the open source software, it is free from carrier baggage and manufacturer add-ons, allowing it to deliver a fast and seamless user experience. Size is a defining factor of the Galaxy Nexus. It stands 135mm tall, just under 68mm wide and 8.9mm thick.
Pros: Stunning HD screen; Android 4.0; Task Manager;
