Samsung Galaxy Nexus review: Opening new doors - read the full textOnce again, it is the Nexus time of the year. This time, Google has left the Gingerbread cookies and, together with Samsung, has brought to us the Galaxy Nexus to deliver the Ice Cream Sandwich. And while a cold dessert is totally out of place this holiday...

If that person sends you an SMS/MMS you don't get the notification ,however it does show in the messages list.

I'm worried about the exclusion of memory card slot in recent devices. Apple are staying away from it, so is MS with WP7, the Nexus and Nexus 7 don't have it either. Some might say it is for cost savings but it is not. Card slots are cheap and add more value to the device. Nexus 7 with 8GB and card slot will be chaper, but more valuable than 16GB version. Same with the Nexus. Is it for future plans for control of content? Or perhaps each camp is pushing its cloud services? Either way I don't like it! I don't want to be dependant on internet connection for expandable storage, storage that someone else owns...

Hell. I'm still waiting for Gingerbread! Samsung and Google are giving special treatment to Nexus owners and that is crap. Don't forget your other users Samsung. Just give me Gingerbread and I'll be a happy camper.

A friend of mine has the Evo, which works similar to my vibrant, but the picture quality is not as good and its way too bulky. Hope this helps.

Missing features on galaxy nexus:-

Speakerfone too low ...also ringing sound not loud

Missing memory card option

Batteey life too less according to the requirement

Since this is made by google..and only sold by samsung..its missing inbuilt call reject function..if you download the app..that is not as good coz fone rimgs once and then auto disconnect..which means opposite person knows ur ignoring...

When youre on ur contact list...u dont have much options like scroll left for sms...
And scroll right for calling

Camera just 5mp...why ?

Icecream sandwich is latest version but doesnt mean its better...coz older version is even more user friendly

After making the fone so expwnsive...its missing some very important functions

Peoxessor is also slow compared to s2...
