Great phone, awesome customization capabilities!
15 May 2013
Summary: I absolutely love this phone. I've managed to get decent battery life by unlocking the phone, flashing a custom ROM (CM10) and flashing a custom kernel (fancy kernel). I've also taken advantage of apps such as Greenify that really help with battery life. I love this phone!
Get it because it's a Nexus, only Nexus on Verizon.
13 May 2013
Summary: Being active in the dev community, and already on Verizon, I really didn't want to lose my unlimited data, but didn't want to pay Verizon price for a 4G phone. This is currently the only Google Nexus device available on Verizon, and it has already been updated to Android's latest software version. I specifically chose this device since it was a Nexus device. I love that it's stock Android, and updated with the latest Android version.
Summary: I bought this product because I'm planning on travelling between the US and UK rather often. I haven't tried it in the UK, but works fine in the US. The general features of the product are good. The phone takes a long time to load things up, it has to 'think' when I bring up my contacts or use basically any program that is on it. There is hardly any space to add apps that I would like, even after adding an SD card.
Summary: Phone was MORE than what I was expecting. I've only had it less than a week, but brought to a friend of mine that we call "The Wizard" because he is a Cell Phone Expert who works at a Cell Phone Booth, and I told him how much I paid for it and he just couldn't believe it, Especially since it was the 32 GB Phone. I upgraded it to Jelly Bean 4.2 as soon as I took it out of the box and it absolutely flies.
Summary: This phone is great, it has one of the best value per money I have ever seen. Its the first one to implement NFC and got official JellyBean update directly from Google. Factory unlocked are one of the best two words a phone can have.
The GNex is Nice (My Thoughts Coming From An iPhone 4)
8 May 2013
Summary: I thought I'd post my thoughts on owning the Samsung Galaxy Nexus after sporting iPhones since 2008 with the iPhone 3G and then the iPhone 4. By the way, I always used to jailbreak my iPhones because I love customization and choice. Apple's iOS is catered more to the easier, carefree user who isn't bent on much customization and doesn't want to go through a webinar course just to learn how to use their device.
Excerpt: Thought I would write a review and let you know how tough your phone is. I left my Nexus on the back of my wife's car and she drove away with it on the bumper. 10 minutes later I realized it and trailed her route in my car. I found it in the middle of a very busy street, laying in 3 pieces (phone, battery, and back). It had fell of her car and was run over at least once by another car. I put it back together and it turned on immediately and works flawlessly!
Excerpt: I love Nexus Products, and more so Samsung products. With the Galaxy nexus you get pure vanilla Android on a device made to run vanilla Android. If you are into Developing or just running Custom Roms. There's not much need on this phone. I realized that when in the past my goal was to run vanilla android without all the carrier bloat. With this phone there is absolutely no need. You have clean, awesome android with no bloat from the get-go.
Summary: Even though the market right now shows phones like the HTC One, LG G2, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S4, and iPhone 5S (see what i did there), that doesn't mean you should ignore this smartphone. The Galaxy Nexus is one of the best devices still available. I use this device as my main smartphone, and it has probably been the best smartphone I ever owned. This review may be a little long, but I'll assure you it's worth reading some of the points. I'll start off with the pros. 1.
