"With Jellybean, this phone is reborn."

After getting my first Nexus, and having to send it back due to a dead pixel, I was a little worried. Once I got my second one all things changed.

Form factor.
I have been turned off by Samsung for years. So it was difficult making this purchase. I opened it up expecting a flimsy plastic phone. And while the phone is plastic, and feels as such, it isn't flimsy. It feels firm in the hand with out wobble or squeaks.

Display
Another turn off of the device was the display. Pentile....enought said. But I had never seen an hd pentile display so I figured I would give it chance. I love the display. Can you tell that it is pentile? Yes. But you have to try and notice it, or be super sensitive about displays. It's vibrant and bright enough for me. I generally have no trouble reading it in direct sunlight.

Camera.
It's okay. It's not as bad as I was expecting. And still better than any camera phone I've had, so I'm fine with it.

Battery life
It's the best I've had. With out LTE on the Verizon version. Generally get around 3 hours of screen on time. Last me a good 18 hours, unless I'm really hammering on it.

OS
Jelly bean. THE reason I got the phone. I can't praise 4.
1 enough. It is fantastic. It takes away all the negatives of Android, which was really only the lagginess. With Jellybean, this phone is reborn, into being the best phone on the market. Yes it has last years specs, but with Jellybean, it feels like this years superphone.

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...
