Samsung Galaxy Nexus review: Hands on
12 February 2014
Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the first smartphone to be running Google's latest and most advanced OS, Android Ice Cream Sandwich or Android 4.0. It's been built by Samsung with a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM and the first true 1280x720p screen.
Summary: I personally think the pros still outweigh the cons here. That is, while always keeping a constant eye on the battery is a pain in the neck, the beautiful AMOLED HD Screen combined with the speed and smoothness of Ice Cream Sandwich and Verizon's 4G Speed easily make up for it.
Excerpt: The Galaxy Nexus has already been out in Verizon clothes for some time now. It had everything you ever wanted in a phone, LTE, Ice Cream Sandwich, fantastic display screen but it was missing one thing.
Conclusion: Purpose built for Ice Cream Sandwich, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus works harmoniously with its operating system. The button-less OS is showcased by its curved, smooth fascia. With its large HD Super AMOLED screen the form complements the engaging new Ice Cream Sandwich widgets and with the slightly...
Pros: Pure Android is much improved, Beautiful, HD Super AMOLED display, Light for its size
Cons: Not as solid as other flagship phones, Camera suffers at night, Volume drop bug affecting some users
Conclusion: Ratings breakdown. I’ve docked a point in the display based on .5 deduction for PenTile Matrix and .5 deduction for color accuracy. The processor is a perfect 10. The RAM and Storage is a 9/10 since there’s no expandable memory.
Conclusion: Undeniably, Verizon Wireless customers are surely lucky because the Samsung Galaxy Nexus managed to make its landing this year – as opposed to being delayed to next year. Who cares that the carrier missed out with a Galaxy S II model of its own, well, customers have consolation knowing that the...
Pros: Clean, complete, and thought-out interface, Large & sharp looking display, Offers 4G LTE connectivity
Cons: Constantly losing 4G LTE connection, Poor battery life
Excerpt: We review a lot of phones , tablets , gadgets, and gizmos at Digital Trends, but very few of them are unique. Most of the time, only one or two small features differentiate a new device from all that came before it, if that.
Pros: New Android Ice Cream Sandwich rocks, Fast camera shutter speed, Clean, buttonless design, Feels great to hold, 4G LTE, dual-core, and NFC included, Screen is big, but manageable
Cons: Battery life isn’t great, Many apps don't take advantage of swiping, Camera gets trigger happy, Contacts app still needs improving
