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 review: Opening new doors

 

Once again, it is the Nexus time of the year. This time, Google has left the Gingerbread cookies and, together with Samsung, has brought to us the Galaxy Nexus to deliver the Ice Cream Sandwich. And while a cold dessert is totally out of place this...

Quad-band GSM; penta-band 3G support ; HSDPA 21Mbps; HSUPA 5.76Mbps ; Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS with stock UI ; 4.65” Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution; 16M colors; oleophobic surface ; Slim profile at...

Camera resolution is not on par with the rest of the high-end dual-core competition ; Below average battery life ; Lacks a dedicated camera key ; No microSD card slot ; No mass-storage mode (some files don't show up in MTP mode) ; Android 4.0 Ice Cream...

Verizon Galaxy Nexus

 

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...

Simple, beautiful design ; Great performance ; Beautiful display

No Google Wallet ; Merely average camera performance ; Poor battery life on LTE

Verizon's Galaxy Nexus isn't better than the HSPA+ version, but it's still a great phone.

Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ review

 

Each year, several dozen smartphones land on our collective desks. They come in different shapes and sizes, boast different features and sell at different

Satisfying look and feel ; Stunning display ; Impressive performance ; Excellent battery life

Underwhelming camera ; Average build quality and materials

The Galaxy Nexus is definitely the best Android phone available today -- it's possibly even the best phone available today, period.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus hands-on: First look

 

Well, Google didn't just unveil a new version of their mobile OS early this morning. They also unveiled their next Google phone, a new galaxy by the name of Nexus. And just a glance on that Super AMOLED screen in 720p HD resolution is enough to tell...

We got our hands on Google's latest Nexus device and we are going to get on board, ready to explore the unfathomed nebulas of its hardware, as well as the Ice Cream Sandwich which its using for fuel. Yummy

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 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.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus review

 

As you may know, I posted my first Galaxy Nexus review back on November 17th, when I was able to get my hands on the international, HSPA+ version of the phone. Verizon has finally released its 4G...

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

The Galaxy Nexus exceeds my expectations as a smartphone

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.
