Overview of Samsung Galaxy Nexus (16GB)

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus has now been discountinued. Please consider the Google Nexus 6 an alternative option.

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus, also known as the Nexus Prime, is the latest 'Google Phone' offering and the very first handset to run Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS).

Having previously manufactured the Google Nexus S, Samsung has once again been chosen by Google to apply its innovative smartphone expertise to its latest handset and this knowledge is married perfectly with the range of new features that Ice Cream Sandwich has to offer.

A range of cutting edge Android features are introduced via the Galaxy Nexus thanks to Android ICS. These include Face Unlock, a means of unlocking the device by looking at the 1.3 MP front facing camera. There's also 'Android Beam', a feature that allows you to easily share contacts, apps, websites and more between two NFC enabled Android devices. Improvements have been made to several of the stock apps, such as camera, calendar and the web browser. More detail on the new Ice Cream Sandwich features can be read here.

Of course, it's not just the software features, but also the hardware features of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus that are bound to impress. A 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB RAM make this handset very powerful indeed, while the 4.65" Super AMOLED display is also an industry first. As well as the 1.3 MP front facing camera, there's a 5MP snapper on the back of the Galaxy Prime, which features and LED flash and shoots 1080p video,

Needless to say, the Galaxy Nexus is not lacking in connectivity features. The usual suspects - Wi-Fi, 3G and Bluetooth are all included, but there's also NFC capability and the new 'Wi-Fi Direct' feature that has been introduced thanks to Android ICS. With Wi-Fi direct, users can connect to nearby peer devices over Wi-Fi without the need for an internet connection. This allows for the instant sharing of files, media and third party apps. In terms of internal storage, this version of the Galaxy Nexus comes with 16GB of space, so there's plenty of room for music, movies and photos.

"Great phone I upgraded from original Nexus so great upgrade. Had to hard reset due to one google update locking me out. But this phone is responsive great screen large but my old eyes need larger. Battery life is OK now its been through a few cycles.With air sync I can access all my itunes stuff with over the air. Overall samsung S 2 owners might not find this phone much of an upgrade but this is the best android phone so far. Pity they didnt put the same camera as s2 "

"I bought a Galaxy Nexus this Tuesday(20 December) and I got it yesterday (22 December). Clove customer service was very kind over phone. I called them many times about delivery and customs taxes. I paid 3284RS during delivery as Indian taxes. But still it was very easy and cheaper compare to buy it in India or in England as a English resident.
Phone is a bit big but big screen is a quite pleasure and it doesn't feel like a pad. After my Nexus one, this is a super fast phone. And I love ICS."

look guys ,
this is the real review
i have ordered the my galaxy nexus on 13 december
and it arrived on 19th
the volume bug is present and i have tried to force the phone to update ( go to about>system update > check update and still telling me your phone is uptodate .)
the volume bug is really bad and it interfere with my HSPA connection and it sometime doesn't connect.
the screen in nexus is awful , the white actually is grey with vertical bands which doesn't disappear till i put the brightness at maximum.
the battery life is extremely bad , not making a day even with light usage.
android 4 still have many bugs and needs much work
for example the gmail application which supposed to be improved is still a dump , the email is not fitting into the screen i have to go right and left to see the mail.
to delete a message i have to delete each individually!!
also to turn the data plan on i need minute to reach the option !! instead of doing that on the main screen !!
really don't buy this phone
and buy anything else
i wish i could return this phone and get anything else

Clove Response 28/12/2011 - Do contact us about the issues you are experiencing.

Excellent phone, however the volume bug is not fixed. i ordered on the 14th of december, so the phone should have come with the fix installed. nevertheless the volume bug persists and its severe

Clove Response 21/12/2011 - If you go to settings and force the phone to look for an update, it should be available to you.

"Great phone. ICS fixes a lot of the issues older versions of Android had and this is by far the smoothest Android interface I've seen on a phone. By making the entire 16GB system storage they have fixed the annoying problem of having to micromanage apps and app data. Would've preferred 32GB, but I have all my data in various cloud services anyway so it's not a major issue.

As an international customer I'd like to add that Clove was a great vendor. Very good communication and the best price around. Thanks!"

"I have owned all the "Google" phones and can say without a doubt that this is the smoothest operating system. It takes a little getting used to but once you find your way around you can't imagine living without it. The only flaw I have found is that the search bar is on every screen and that Google made the soft keys( phone,menu etc.) to big.For such a large screen they should have taken a more minimalist approach to the soft keys. I did end up putting GoLauncher EX over my stock screen..it is more in tune with what I expect from ICS."

Screen is brilliant. Phone is very high build quality, slightly better than my other phone: Galaxy S2. (not like my last 3 high end HTC phones which had good quality parts, but poor build quality, dust behind the display, etc.)
And finally it has a notification led, which SGS2 was missing."

"I just got my SGN today from Clove - and absolutely love it. So far, I haven't been able to produce the volume bug (which doesn't mean it won't show up later). Apart from that dark cloud hanging over the SGN right now, the phone is extremely well balanced. Best screen of its class, very, very fast, great build quality and Ice Cream Sandwich is a DREAM. Finally they've managed to not only produce better hardware than Apple, but also to have better software."
