The Samsung Galaxy Nexus (previously recognized as the Nexus Prime) is the 3rd Nexus-branded handset from Google in the last two years, and the newest in the collection of -reference handsets- that it associates with hardware producers on to release being operated by Android, exclusive of any intermediary variations.
The anticipations for the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus S is heating up day by day, since it has the latest most Android OS 4.0 running inside (Ice Cream sandwich that is), and the hardware department is also very well-equipped. Therefore, we at Techvocal.com decided to write an exclusive Samsung Galaxy Nexus review.
Samsung Galaxy Nexus Design
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus pretty much resembles to the Nexus S line up of smartphones in terms of design. Including the same curved edges, exterior color, and a little rounded upper-face. While this time the -hyperskin- substance has swapped the button department on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Coming down to its dimensions, the Galaxy Nexus measures at 135.5 x 67.9 x 8.9 mm and weighs at 135 g (4.8 ounces)
Samsung Galaxy Nexus Processor
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is powered by a Dual-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A9 CPU, TI OMAP 4460 chipset, which sure is powerful enough but doesn’t go with the 1.5GHz dual-core that Sensation XE has. But it sure isn’t a point to complain, in view of the fact that it will efficiently carry out your tasks without any difficulty!
Samsung Galaxy Nexus Memory and Media
For a second time, like the Nexus S, the Galaxy Nexus doesn’t equip a SD card slot. In its place, there’s 16GB/32GB of internal/built-in storage capacity that’ll satisfy the users. The built-in video player still isn’t extremely proficient when it comes to file formats, but don’t worry guys, there’s abundance of open substitutes in the Android application market that’ll do the work satisfactorily.
Samsung Galaxy Nexus Display
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus features a large 4.65” Super AMOLED HD display screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. And as far as the display quality goes, we have no point to complain since we are dealing with Samsung, which are very well known for the display screens they manufacture. The display is made in such a way that it helps in increasing the battery timing and the contrast, at the same time.
Even though the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has HD resolution, the screen dimension limits on the huge, hence there’s a possibility that pixel density may not be the supreme highest around, nor the utter sharpest or clearest, but we can sure expect some remarkable quality points from the screen department of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
Samsung Galaxy Nexus shooters
The excellence of shooters/cameras on smartphones is sure turning out to be a vast topic and a point for concern, and this leaves us a bit disappointing for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, since it has a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera (that sounds OK) but the 5-megapixel, rear-facing (primary) camera isn’t just a big hit.
And when comparing the Samsung Galaxy Nexus with preceding Samsung phones such as the phones with amazing 8-megapixel cameras -the whole Galaxy S II collection of smartphones- hence this 5-megapixel camera sounds a bit off the track and doesn’t seems right. Even it lacks the shutter lag. However, the innovative camera software by Ice cream sandwich may perhaps make the things right for it, and may possibly even outdo the 8-megapixel camera in terms of picture class and photogenic pleasure.
Samsung Galaxy Nexus Connectivity
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus will equip support for both HSPA+ and LTE networks, however relying on the market. In view of the fact that Samsung only declared one carrier –Japan’s NTT DoCoMo–, we’re still not definite if we can also have the Verizon’s ultra fast 4G LTE, T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 42 network, or something in that range.
And just like the Samsung Galaxy S, the Galaxy Nexus also has NFC support integrated, through which you can easily pay for things at associated terminals. Moreover, there’s also a barometer integrated, which usually comes along with recent devices. For sharing needs, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has Bluetooth V3.0 and Micro USB V2.0.
Wrapping up the Review
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus isn’t the mainly influential Android smartphone around the world and its not even the most proficient one, but if you’re looking for -pure- Android experience, untouched by the Samsung’s TouchWiz UI topping, then this phone is worth it!
Its huge display screen seems extraordinary, but that’s on the expense of the battery life, so don’t expect the Samsung Galaxy Nexus to last too long. Though, you can switch off some features like NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and synching to increase some additional hours for its battery, but when other phones can take all the heat without even damaging the battery life (as much as this phone does), then it’s an embarrassment to see the Galaxy Nexus in this situation.
Samsung Galaxy Nexus availability: The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is said to be available during the month of November, and O2 carrier will certainly be putting it up for sale. Stay tuned for more updates and explore the Galaxy Nexus further or another great LetsTalk cell phone.
