  • Android 4.3

  • 4.7"

The superior screen of the Galaxy Nexus, while giving it a touch of exclusivity hardware-wise, will not be enough to cannibalize the strong sales, which the I9100 still enjoys.
by GSM Arena (Dec, 2011)
That's not terribly impressive for a high end smartphone on Verizon Wireless, and so far it seems that 3G isn't the Galaxy Nexus' strong point, though LTE is solid.

Reviews Word on the street for the Samsung GALAXY Nexus


10.0
It is indeed very colorful, but not as cartoonishly enhanced as some of Samsung's smartphone displays, and blacks are much deeper vs. standard LCDs.

8.5
Messaging: With plenty of screen real estate available to us thanks to its ginormous 4.65” display, the messaging experience is undoubtedly very easy on the fingers.

8.0
Close ups are handled well, with the camera managing to focus easily.
