Samsung Galaxy Nexus Review & Price
Samsung Galaxy Nexus Review : Integrated with Ice Cream Sandwich OS
Android fans have got another reason to rejoice as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will soon launch in the market with its Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. With this, Google has claimed that this is the first phone to get all new OS in the market.
The Display :
One thing we must say is the combination of Gingerbread and Honeycomb seems successful where the latest version of Android is more likely to be the best. No more buttons have been placed under the screen. In place of that, the phone locates three context sensitive buttons on the screen as home, back and recent apps. The Nexus boasts a strikingly large 4.65 inch Super AMOLED HD screen and has also got a distinctive teardrop design.
The screen boasts high definition clarity with a resolution of 1280×720. Therefore, we expect the Galaxy Nexus to provide an ultra sharp as well as crisp image. The screen of this phone is a bit curvy making the phone a little thicker at the top and slightly wider at the bottom. It measures at 8.94mm thick at the widest. This new phone has got larger display than the Samsung Galaxy S II and the HTC Sensation, both of which have 4.3 inch of display. Apart from the power and volume buttons, the Nexus has got no other physical buttons. The major drawback is the phone’s construction which is made up of plastic.
Samsung Galaxy Nexus is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor with its 1GB RAM. It comes in two memory storage options – 16GB and 32GB internally. For extra storage, the phone does not possess any microSD card slot. The phone is powered by a 1750mAh battery. Besides, considering the camera of Nexus, it has 5 megapixels of camera with single LED flash at the rear. The rear camera doubles up to provide full HD 1080p video recording facility. Moreover, a front facing camera is also available of 1.3 megapixel to handle video calls.
Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, Near Field Communications chip, and USB 2.0 via a regular micro-USB port are some of the features that this phone boasts.
