Samsung Galaxy Nexus review
12 February 2014
Conclusion: While it might be too big for everyone’s taste, the Nexus is a beautiful handset. The screen is vibrant and one of the best we’ve seen on any handset to date. With the addition of Ice Cream Sandwich, which marries great performance and slick features to the already an already potent operating...
Pros: Beautiful screen, Ice Cream Sandwich, Fantastic power, First to get Android updates being a Nexus phone
Cons: 5MP camera, Missing notifications, No USB Storage mode, no microSD slot
Excerpt: IN THE TRADITION of the Nexus S, which was the first Android Gingerbread phone, Samsung has constructed an elegantly simple, yet powerful, phone to show off the stock version of Google's latest OS, Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).
Pros: Large HD display; screaming‑fast performance; non-skinned Ice Cream Sandwich OS; NFC equipped.
Cons: No microSD slot; no HDMI‑out; Google Wallet not yet equipped; last-generation camera hardware; low display contrast.
Pros: The best Android phone to date, hands down. Improvements in Ice Cream Sandwich make it much easier to use. Super AMOLED screen is bright and crisp. Cool features like Face Unlock and NFC-powered Beam take phone-based parlor tricks to a new level. Data Usage tool provides granular graphs for us OC...
Cons: Some apps not fully optimized for ICS, bringing out annoying bugs. Snaps pics way faster than a Polaroid, though image quality is twice as crappy. Awesomely shiny screen makes for less-than-awesome battery life.
Conclusion: First and foremost, if you’re a Sprint customer who simply can’t wait any longer to experience the bountiful features associated with Ice Cream Sandwich, you should no doubt check out the Samsung Galaxy Nexus .
Pros: Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, Still has an attractive display, 4G LTE enabled
Cons: Sluggish performance, Choppy web browsing, Poor quality video recording, Poor battery life, Low signal strength
Summary: Samsung Galaxy Nexus is a very flat slate-like device with a rather large screen at this point of time. The Nexus is sometimes known as a Google phone, meaning that the owner of the Android OS worked with Samsung in developing the hardware and software combination that would work best for the...
Conclusion: The unlocked Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the only way to get pure, unadulterated Jelly Bean (Android 4.1), and it's an unusually good deal for a smartphone that doesn't come with a specific carrier attachment.
Pros: Runs Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean" out of the box. Fast and responsive. High-definition screen. No bloatware. Great battery life.
Cons: Spotty reception. Slower-than-expected data speeds. Slightly dated hardware.
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.
