chadbordes's review of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (LTE)

original version, submitted Mar 31, 2012, 11:18 AM:

Nexus and ICS

I was debating going back to the iphone after having the droid charge. The phone was incredibly fast but had issues with it powering off all the time.

I went back and forth between the iphone for simplicity sake or upgrading to the Galaxy Nexus. I have to say the Verizon salesperson was HORRIBLE at promoting products (fyi point out the bonus' of your phones, not the shortcomings). I left the store with a bad taste in my mouth and was going to stick with the charge.

I did some more research and decided to bite the bullet and shell out some $300 for a new phone. I can tell you that my decision was not a bad one. I have had the phone for a week and I really feel that Samsung nailed it with this phone (great job to google for the ICS) I love the customization factor on this phone...this truly is my phone.

The speed is fantastic switching between apps and yes it is a redesigned UI but you will get used to it quickly. The camera is fast, battery life is decent and I love the notification feature, as someone else mentioned, that lets me know I have a message waiting without having to pick up my phone all the time.

I bought the spare battery charger and an extended battery. I have no problem making it through the day on a single charge.

2 cons to the phone which in my opinion are minor
1. Camera-5.0 megapixel not 8...still very clear photos
2. Screen resolution-seems a bit washed out. Not as vibrant as my charge.

I love ICS and appreciate how fast this phone is. I will say this phone gives iphone a good run for the money. It will be interesting to see what iphone does for next gen.

Have a great day.
