Samsung Galaxy Nexus Review

 

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). Android function...

Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Unlocked)

 

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.

Runs Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean" out of the box. Fast and responsive. High-definition screen. No bloatware. Great battery life

Spotty reception. Slower-than-expected data speeds. Slightly dated hardware

Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Sprint)

 

Sprint's version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus pairs a "pure Google" experience with unlimited data, but for now, that's very slow data.

Fast. Developer-friendly, stock Android 4.0. Excellent voice quality.

No LTE coverage yet. Limited audio and video codec support. No card slot. Buggy HDMI output.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Sprint)

 

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Sprint offers all the power of Google's flagship phone, plus the promise of LTE. Is it worth the wait?

Click to EnlargeAs with the Verizon and the unlocked version, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Sprint has a lot going for it: a brilliant screen, a powerful processor and the latest Android 4.0 operating system. However, at the moment, its 3G-only speeds...

Samsung (Sprint) Galaxy Nexus

 

Third time's a charm..

Simple yet beautiful design ; Google Wallet onboard ; Solid performer

Shorter battery life than other Galaxy Nexuses ; Mediocre camera performance ; Early adopters will have to wait for LTE service

The Galaxy Nexus remains one of the best Android phones on the market, and this version, in particular, includes Google Wallet. Still, the battery life is relatively short, and early adopters will have to wait for Sprint's LTE network to go live.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus & Ice Cream Sandwich Review

 

The evolution of Google's Nexus line is an interesting one. Each year, Google chooses both a silicon partner and an OEM to make a unique hardware archetype which it caters a specific build of Android to. We've been playing with the latest Nexus -...

Samsung Galaxy Nexus review: Opening new doors

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Review: Sleek and Speedy

 

We'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. So is the Galaxy Nexus, the first phone to run...

4G/LTE is very fast ; Ice Cream Sandwich is a real treat ; Slim, curved design

No expandable memory ; No Google Wallet support ; Camera is just okay

The best Android phone to date, the Galaxy Nexus dazzles with its curved display, sleek design, fast performance, and, of course, the Ice Cream Sandwich update.

Terrific 4G data speeds ; Ice Cream Sandwich is a killer mobile OS ; Fantastic 720p display

Battery life takes a hit on LTE ; Camera quality can be spotty ; Some older apps not fully compatible with ICS

Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Verizon Wireless)

 

With Ice Cream Sandwich, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus for Verizon has the best software of any Android phone, but that doesn't make it the best phone there is.

First phone shipping with Android 4.0, which includes many key software improvements. Excellent 4G LTE speeds.

Reception and call quality problems. Buggy HDMI output.
