Since the Samsung Galaxy Nexus global updated to Jelly Bean the device has remained in the Official Smartphone Rankings top five. It appears it's continually fast updates and great price point help hold it in fifth position for another week.
"is a great budget device for those willing to carry a extra battery" By MATTWORKS on November 5, 2012
The device gets fast updates, is competitively priced and offers not so old specs. The operations of the user interface is fast and fluid and, is a great device to root because of how super easy it is to unlock the boatloader, for those who are scared of bricking their device. Lastly the only downside for me was the OK battery life, that won't impress road runners but if you only use the device lightly to mid use you will just make a day. So if you carry extra batteries normally but want a long lasting cheap Android phone, but don't care about top tear specs and want to get into root then this is the device for you.
Battery Life 3/5
