Galaxy Nexus Reviews
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus marries the power of the Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS with the speed of Verizon's LTE network. The phone's beautiful screen and internal performance are top-notch.
To say I've been eagerly awaiting a chance to review the Galaxy Nexus would be an understatement. As I mentioned last week, I've been thinking pretty seriously that this device would be the next phone I lay out cold cash for. And really, is that so crazy?
It's the Galaxy Nexus. It has LTE. It's the phone we've been waiting (and waiting) for. Sure, some of our more globe-trotting members of the staff were suitably sated by the HSPA+ version that shipped a few weeks ago, but the rest of us domestic types simply need more bandwidth.
Here it is, guys, the next big thing in the world of Android smartphones. Let us introduce you to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus â€“ the third Google phone, which comes to succeed the Nexus S
by Samsung and Nexus One by HTC.
Gotta Be Mobile
The best Android phones are arguably the Nexus devices which get special treatment from Google. These phones have the latest software, the best features and often the best looks.
While you may have already seen our extensive review of the GSM version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, we've also got one that uses Verizon's high-speed LTE 4G network.
Weâ€™ve been clamoring to get our hands on the Galaxy Nexus ever since its unveiling in Hong Kong back in October. Finally, at long last, the U.S. version of the Galaxy Nexus has landed in our office.
As 2011 draws to a close, Google has yet another tasty treat prepared for Android devotees -- the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, powered by the freshly-minted Android 4.0 â€œIce Cream Sandwichâ€ OS.
Well, itâ€™s finally here. Googleâ€™s official developer phone for Ice Cream Sandwich has reached American shores with Verizon as its official launch partner, for better or worse.
Android And Me
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus has quickly become the Holy Grail of Android smartphones. After a lengthy wait, the Galaxy Nexus finally made its way stateside with a release on Verizon Wireless back in December to much fanfare, with people lining up in droves to pick one up on release day.
As an Android Enthusiast, I have high expectations of the Galaxy Nexus. After all, it is a Pure Google device thatâ€™s considered by many to run bleeding edge Android OS. It is Android at its best.
Literally, the name alone would indicate that you would have a billion stars connected together. Â But you would be wrong. Â The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the best smartphone on the market today - bar none.
A new Nexus is a big deal in Android land, and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has plenty to live up to. As close to an official Googlephone as we ever get, they demonstrate not just how Androidâ€™s creators think smartphone development should progress, but set the benchmark by which the platform as a whole is compared to rivals like the iPhone.
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is one of the most anticipated Android smartphone of 2011. It is eagerly awaited by customers because it is a beautiful handset equipped with a new generation of 4.65â€³ 720p Super-AMOLED display, but more importantly, it is the first smartphone with Googleâ€™s latest operating system, Android 4.0 codenamed Ice Cream Sandwich.
