I've upgraded from another Android phone (the HTC/Google Nexus). All I needed to do was take the SIM out of the old phone, snap the back off the Galaxy Nexus, install the SIM and battery and refit the back cover (a little bit fiddly on first attempt).
Then I plugged it in using the supplied plug adaptor and micro-USB connector and powered it up. After entering wifi network details and the username and password for my Google Apps account, the phone was ready to use.
It immediately began installing the various apps that I had set to AutoUpdate on the old phone and, after a few minutes of that, it told me that there was a firmware update. This took about 3 mins to perform, including a reboot of the phone.
The screen is gorgeous - large, vibrant, and really easy to read. It's much larger than the Nexus One, but it's lighter too. The phone is much faster than my old Google Nexus - apps spring open, and flipping screens / navigating menus is near instantaneous.
One niggle is that the Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android works differently to the previous versions. The app tray is swiped sideways rather than up/down - muscle memory/force of habit means that I've found myself performing the old gestures in this first hour or so. I guess that will fade pretty quickly.
I've taken some stills and video. Both are straightforward to perform, and the picture quality seems good (need to check it on a PC screen) but I seem to have put my finger over the microphone a few times while filming - need to work out the best way to hold it to avoid this in future.Read more ›
The build is surprisingly good, I was worried about the fact it's mostly plastic but I'm actually really grateful. It's much lighter than my old Desire Z (which doubled as a paperweight) and also incredibly thin. The curved screen is not very noticeable but just exudes awesomeness when you have it casually laying on a table. I really like that the front has very few features when the screen is off, and looks very understated. A lot of my friends have complemented me on it! My biggest issue with the phone is that the screen is huge and really difficult to operate one-handed unless you have big hands (I don't). There's a lot of hand-shuffling from the top to the bottom, or using two hands.
The screen is really nice. I have had no issues with the auto-dimming feature other people have found, it works great. The screen is pin-sharp and colours are simply excellent. My issue is that, despite lots of people saying you cannot notice the "Pentile" type display, you can. I've found it particularly noticeable on thin cyan lines (such as when typing a message in Messaging); it's not a big issue but is a bit of a shame because otherwise the screen is spectacular.
ICS is really cool and a huge leap in terms of visuals for Android. I really, really like it and I also love having pure Android on it, which makes it easier for me as a developer too. The UI is understated and sleek, and much better than HTC Sense and TouchWiz, which are starting to look really stale. I like having the multi-tasking button there (although I'd love to be able to "pin" apps here), but I really would've liked a search button too.Read more ›
I recently found myself the owner of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Google's hero device for Ice Cream Sandwich (the latest iteration of Android). What you'll find in this review are comments both about the device itself and the software found upon it. But first, a quick recap. The Nexus One debuted in early 2010, the first of the Nexus line, and was designed to become a benchmark that all other Android phones are to live up to. Later that year, the Nexus S was released to champion Android 2.3 Gingerbread and also be the first of it's kind to support NFC. Now we see the third in the Nexus line, the Galaxy Nexus. Manufactured by Samsung (like the Nexus S), the Galaxy Nexus finds itself on par with current smartphone offerings, but sporting a couple of unique features including the OS.
The first thing you notice about the Galaxy Nexus is the size of it. I've been used to a 4.3' Desire HD for the past 12 months and thought that was giant, but this is on another level. The 4.65' screen makes it large indeed, not Galaxy Note large, and not even HTC Titan large, but definitely up there as one of the more monstrous handsets. To look at the shape of the Galaxy Nexus is to almost see the result of a Nexus S and a Galaxy SII having a child with a recessive gene coming out to make it larger than both. The Galaxy Nexus comes out at a smidgen under 9mm in thickness and 135g in weight. The thinness mitigates some of the lateral size to the phone and the weight means it doesn't drag down on your pockets much. The colour is a satiny grey that leans over towards a gun-metal hue.Read more ›
