What is it?
The Galaxy Nexus was one of the biggest and the most anticipated announcements of this generation, as Google revealed its latest handset from Samsung. After the initial success of the Galaxy S2, Samsung added to its stunning lineup of cell phones with the release of the Galaxy Nexus, which enjoyed tremendous success and is still going strong. The biggest selling point of the phone was the update to its operating system, as Google seized the opportunity to make its flagship device the first phone to come pre installed with Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich. The phone has a range of different features that make it one of the most advanced handsets of this generation, and in the following few paragraphs, we review the device as well as its features.
How it works
The Galaxy Nexus is the first smart phone that comes without any physical buttons or any buttons at all. Instead, these buttons are built on the screen, providing a rapid touch response and a seamless working environment. This particularly comes in handy when the device is being used to watch a movie or check out pictures, because the buttons are automatically retracted in order to increase the real estate on the screen, making it much larger. The phone has a slightly curved backside, which adds class and beauty, and the thin profile of the device makes it a really beautiful phone. If you are looking for something with a lot of power and a lot of style to match, the Galaxy Nexus is tailor made for you.
The device runs on a dual core Texas Instruments processing chip with a dedicated GPU, making animations so much faster and smoother. It has a 5 MP rear camera as well as a 2 MP front facing camera, and comes in 8/ 16/ 32 GB variants without the option of expansion through the micro SD card. The phone also features a 4.65 inch Super AMOLED display, which is by far one of the most beautiful screens that you will ever lay your eyes on. The powerful battery can last a person a whole day with heavy usage, with all radio receivers turned on. The phone has 1 GB of RAM to enhance performance and comes pre installed with all of the standard Google features that you would have come to expect, making it one of the most complete devices around.
