Ratings based off today's smartphones (3/5/13)

Posted on: March 5th, 2013 by Paul Battle

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus was the most anticipated smartphone in 2011-2012. It inspired many OEM's previous flagship device and it was the mark of a milestone in the tech world. The display, at its release, was superb. However in today's world where 1080p displays are at the brink of being standard, it is mediocore. I suppose its the pentile pixel matrix that makes it kind of hard for text to be crisp, coupled with the fact that its a Super Amoled HD display, in stark contrast to the IPS LCD displays that are really defined. The reception it tolerable, depends on carrier. The battery life is subpar. The stock battery (roughly rated at 1850 mAh) is simply not enough to power the heavy user as its busy powering up the device's 1.2 GHz Dual-Core TI OMAP processor in addition to 1 GB of RAM and pushing all those pixels. The battery life is this device's Achilles's heel, you could even say. The design is beautiful, and you can see that Google responds well to a great design and form factor, thus the preservation of the design when up against its successor, the Nexus 4. Finally Apps and Media Support, the Google Play Store is hitting around 800,000 applications. What more can be said. In a nutshell, the Galaxy Nexus is still a great device! I currently own it and it certainly is one of mobile technology's best and most innovative devices. But it is for the tech savvy, those who love a pure Android experience (without skins) and/or enjoy a large developer community.

Not the newest phone out but I still really like it

Posted on: December 31st, 2012 by Jason Hertz

I've had the galaxy nexus international for about a year now. I'm a teenager so I don't get a phone every few months. I was thinking about upgrading to the nexus 4 but my mom didn't let me so instead I got a nexus 10. The display is very good clear and saturated without being overly saturated. There device looks really sleek with its on screen buttons. There are plenty of apps on the app store like doodle jump, angry burds , and dead trigger. I don't do a lot of calling on it I mostly text but the calls I've made have been fine. The only negative reallly is the battery life. I'm pretty much on my phone all the time and I find my self having to charge it around 7 for an hour or so. If you you're on Verizon or sprint and want a good, relatively inexpensive phone go for the galaxy nexus. If you're buying unlocked get the nexus 4, its the best deal on the market.

Great, but with drawbacks

Posted on: December 27th, 2012 by Anonymous

Don't get me wrong-this phone's drawbacks don't stop the Gnex from being the best phone on the market. The display is mediocre, depending on which one you get. Mine was defective, getting it replaced. I'll edit and give it a 4 if my new one is fine, Battery life remains mediocre. It has great form factor, and the hump on the bottom makes it comfortable to type with. For VZW users, root, unlock BL, and install CM for 4.2.1
