Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Sprint) review:

 

We recently reviewed the the Samsung Galaxy Nexus model available on Verizon. Due to the phones' similar build and components, applicable portions of that review will also be used in this Sprint-specific evaluation.

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus marries the power of the Ice Cream Sandwich with a stock Andorid OS. The phone's beautiful screen and performance are top-notch, and unlike its Verizon counterpart, the Google Wallet payment app is onboard.

The Galaxy Nexus lacks a slot for expandable memory, the 5-megapixel camera isn't Samsung's best, and battery life could be longer. We’re also still waiting for phone’s connection to Sprint’s LTE network.

Though Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus retains the cache of being an official showpiece for Ice Cream Sandwich, it's no longer the only kid on the block. The fact that Sprint’s LTE network is not operational yet doesn’t help the phone, either.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Review: Android 4.0 and Sprint LTE

Samsung Galaxy Nexus - Pocket-lint

 

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is probably the most anticipated Android device for 2011. Each Nexus is special because it ushers in a new wave of software. In

Sharp display is wonderful at full brightness, Android 4, you'll be first in the queue for software updates, NFC, lightweight, video looks sensational

As display dims it becomes grubby, auto brightness too aggressive, no microSD card slot, early adopters will have to wait for app developers to catch up

If you're looking for a pure Android experience, then you've probably already decided to opt for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. It's a competitive device from a hardware point of view, with a distinct advantage of being Google's baby when it comes to...
