Samsung Galaxy Nexus

 

The first Ice Cream Sandwich phone appears - but does it give us brain freeze?

Amazingly sharp 720p screen, Android 4.0 software is great, 1080p video recording, Excellent performance

AMOLED display not flawless, Non-expandable memory, All-plastic frame

Samsung Galaxy Nexus

 

Nicely built, big screen, fast interface and internet browsing, smooth motion to video

Audio lacks a little excitement, colours are slightly dull

It’s great for for calls and browsing, but rivals pip it for audio and video quality

Ultimately, what we took most from the Galaxy Nexus was a sense of renewed excitement about the other Ice Cream Sandwich phones that will appear over the coming weeks and months. The Nexus is ‘pure’ Android, it is fast due to its lack of customisations...

But is Ice Cream Sandwich all it's cracked up to be? Our first impressions of the revamped Android OS were positive and even though Google has made significant changes, the interface didn't feel alien to us. Google appears to have successfully blended...

Review: Samsung Galaxy Nexus Android 4.0 smartphone

I was utterly convinced that this device would be my next. Ice Cream Sandwich is easily the greatest incarnation of Android yet and it will be exciting to see where Google take it next. It feels like Google has looked at every aspect of Gingerbread and...

Samsung Galaxy Nexus review

 

Google's Nexus line is meant to set the bar for what an Android phone should be, and the new Galaxy Nexus does not disappoint. The Galaxy Nexus is sleek and attractive, with a thin, light body and a beautiful HD display. It's screamingly fast, too,...

Samsung Galaxy Nexus review -

 

Super responsive touch-screen and keyboard, Ice Cream Sandwich is fast, powerful and intuitive, excellent social and email features, best iteration of Gmail available, full-featured camera with instant shutter and time lapse mode

Camera is average in low light, Ice Cream Sandwich still has a few bugs causing force closes, lack of support for many video formats

Android is becoming an unstoppable force in the mobile industry. A wide range of manufacturers, each have their own spin on the OS, have cranked out device after device.  Google, however, has released the unbranded, vanilla version for a select few...
