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

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.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Written...
Through all of the hundreds of Android phones that have released in the past year, the Galaxy Nexus is easily one of the most highly anticipated and notable that we at PhoneDog have had a chance to review. It's big, slim and stylish, and it comes packed with some of the best specifications we've seen in a handset to date. Officially, you can only purchase it through Verizon in the United States, but through other resellers, you can purchase an unsubsidized, unlocked GSM version that... more...
