Galaxy Nexus can be considered the best Android phone present in the market and this is mainly due to Ice Cream Sandwich. Over the last couple of years, Google has brought some pretty impressive and radical changes in Android and this has made Android phones highly popular. On the other hand, the changes made iPhones since 2007 are not grand at all.
Galaxy Nexus can impress the audience in a variety of ways. To start with, the phone has an enchanting look and design. Even with a big 4.65 inch screen, the phone looks smart and reasonably sized. The curved glass design and slim structure makes the device a delight to use. The unlocked Galaxy Nexus model is slimmer compared to the one that comes under contract with Verizon. The most important feature of Galaxy Nexus, without a doubt, is Ice Cream Sandwich. Needless to say, this is the best version of Android that has been released so far and is almsot equivalent to iOS 5. Best features of Honeycomb and Gingerbread have been combined in this version. The OS offers impressive multi-tasking facilities and highly organized social networking integration. The number of quality apps present in Android Market is less compared to those present in Apple App Store, but it is just a matter of time before this weakness is rectified.
Performance wise, the device is elite with its ability to play 720p HD video and high resolution display, even though iPhone’s Retina Display is still better. Talking about the hardware features, this phone runs on a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor which is sufficit for multitasking, 1 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. At these specs, the price of Galaxy Nexus from Verizon is $300, however it would’ve been a good idea to offer a 16 GB version as well. The battery life of the device is not very impresive, but that should be given considering the support for 4G LTE network of Verizon. The GSM version of the device has a pretty good battery life, however. Moving forward, the audio quality of Galaxy Nexus is not good at all since the sound, at times, is barely audible. Other than that, the indicator light at the bottom of the device is an impressive addition which gives different colored lights depending upon the kind of notification that has been received. Talking about the camera of this device, its pretty good and shoots 1080p video with 5 mega pixels but still there are devices with better 8 mega pixel camera. Other than several Android devices, iPhone 4S also comes with an 8 mega pixel camera.
Consdering all the impressive technical specifications of Samsung Galaxy Nexus, this is a highly recommended phone for any Android fan or otherwise.
