Samsung Galaxy Nexus "Google Phone" from Verizon Wireless Review
28 January 2012
Excerpt: My first impression upon opening up the package was that the phone was ENORMOUS. My current phone is a Blackberry Curve, and this phone’s size just blew me away. I didn’t know how I would be able to use it or fit it in my pocket. However, it compensates for its size with how thin it is.
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.
