Samsung Galaxy Nexus GSM:
Price: $399 off contract through Google's Play Store
- Great 720p screen
- Ice Cream Sandwich lives up to the hype
- Silky smooth performance
- Sub-par camera sensor (camera app is amazing)
- Not comfortable to hold
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the first, and currently only, phone that runs Android's latest operating system: Ice Cream Sandwich. This review is going to focus on the device as a whole, which includes Ice Cream Sandwich, but will go in depth on the operating system at a later time. It is hard not to compare the Galaxy Nexus to the Galaxy S II line of phones but in reality the two phones do not share much in common. Being a Nexus device the Galaxy Nexus is considered Android's premier device, for the time being at least. One thing to note about the GSM version of the Phone is that it is not officially available for sale from any carrier in the US, and thus is sold completely unlocked, and will work on the HSPA+ networks of both AT&T and T-Mobile. For me this is important because it allows users to create a Wifi network for no added cost.
