dyallo, 19 Oct 2011not downgrading from S II to get this. as always, im disappointed with the Nexus Phones.The Nexus series are for the OS versions. The NExus phones are the first ones which WILL come with the latest OS version, just see the previous Nexus device. The Galaxy series are for the high-end section!
1. It has a music player with Preset equalizer...?
2. Can we read all regional fonts...? (unicode text)
samsung did a great job..no doubt, Bt a smart phone ll be popular dn wen its price suitable for middle range tech savvy people. Otherwise there z no worth of technical increasement.. If more people are nt able 2 use it.

Android is a copycat always copied other os like... moreGeez dude have you not heard of a balanced opinion? Why can't you appreciate the efforts of all parties? The competition and innovation is benefitting everyone. Handset (and OS) developmemnt is unbelievably good at the moment across all manufacturers.
Apple have blatantly copied Android's notification bar (amongst other things), but so what? Who cares? Does that mean I shouldn't consider buying the iphone 4s either? Of course it doesn't. In fact I can't wait to try it :-)
[deleted post]We are telling the same about u. "What a waste product!!"
Many people are confused by Android's task management. ICS makes it look more intuitive for people allow people to close down applications easily.
The UI looks very similar to Honeycomb with the way you configure the home screen, virtual buttons, resizable widgets. The added gestures make it easier to so certain things. Much easier to delete tabs by flicking than trying to press the little X.
As for the phone itself, it seems more to be a platform to showcase ICS rather than one to blow other phones away in every respect. The resolution of the screen is similar to Honeycomb tablets and in a 16:9 aspect ratio. The camera specs didn't match many of the high end phones. I don't see camera being a big part of ICS and is rather independent of ICS.
My current phone was released a year ago. I would like to see it run ICS. Based on the timeline of the Gingerbread update, I don't expect it to be available until next summer. I more likely want to see my tablet run ICS mainly for the browser. I mainly use Opera Mobile on my tablet as I like Opera more than the stock browser. I'm interested in how good the ICS browser is. I would like to get a good desktop-like experience.
Well that's gonna be an easy one... I'll just upgrade my SGS2 with ICS and that'll make it THE phone to beat. LOL
"The Galaxy Nexus is the world's first smartphone with HD display and runs the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich"
False information GSM Arena, isn't that LG is the first smartphone with HD Display?
resolution is awesome. 4.65" is big but still really cool. It's not like it's as big as the Galaxy Wifi.
This definitely caught my attention. I'd love to get my hands on the hardware.

Let's see, where did the idea of Siri come from in the first place? Google. Where did the notifications panel in iOS 5 come from? Android. Who keep making up lawsuits because they're frightened little chickens? Apple.
Is it confirmed that there is a microSD slot? It would have to be under the battery because the Engadget photos with the battery cover off only show the SIM card slot at top. Anyone know for sure? The DoCoMo leak translate seemed to say it did, but nothing else says so?
