Samsung Galaxy Nexus review

 

We've managed to get hands on with Google's latest flagship phone the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, with a screen that could rival the HTC Titan and Android 4.0 on board it's time to put it to the test

Beautiful screen ; Ice Cream Sandwich ; Fantastic power

5MP camera ; Missing notifications ; Limited apps

While it might be too big for everyone’s taste, the Nexus is a beautiful handset. The screen is vibrant and one of the best we’ve seen on any handset to date.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus review

 

The Galaxy Nexus is the flagship for all Google Android phones, and the launch vehicle for Google's latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.

The Galaxy Nexus stands as the flagship of Android phones and the standard-bearer for Google’s new Ice Cream Sandwich OS, making it the must-have handset for followers of the platform. Yet in most respects the Galaxy Nexus is no better than the Samsung...

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 review

 

A massive screen, dual-core processor and fantastic camera make this new flagship Android worthy of the title, but it's Android 4.0 that's the real star of the show

The first Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone arrives – but will Samsung's Android flagship sink or soar?

A big phone with the mighty Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS and spectacular display

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Review: In Depth

 

Google phones. In a way, every Android phone is a Google phone, but manufacturers tend to prevent the pure Google Android experience from shining through with their own custom interfaces. In turn, there…

Pure Android is much improved ; Beautiful, HD Super AMOLED display ; Light for its size

Not as solid as other flagship phones ; Camera suffers at night ; Volume drop bug affecting some users

Samsung Galaxy Nexus - The Next King

 

A brand new Android 4.0 ICS OS, NFC capabilities, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and a rich 4.65-inch 720p Full HD Super AMOLED Display? That's the Samsung Galaxy Nexus in a nutshell. Hit the jump for our review with this beast of a smartphone.

Gorgeous 4.65-inch AMOLED Plus 720p screen; Comes with Android 4.0; Speedy performance

Hit and miss camera performance; Lackluster battery mileage; Apps unable to function properly at times

Google pulls out the big guns

If someone were to ask me which phone they should get for their next upgrade, I would have very little hesitation in recommending the Galaxy Nexus as one of their top considerations. It is a remarkable device into which a lot of care and attention has...
