Anonymous, 19 Oct 2011Sorry GSMarena, but the first buttonless phone is the Nokia N900, not the N9. Yeah right... It's the whole alphabet worth of keys and then some
Some objective points i would like to pinpoint:
-Nice look and really better overall interface than Gingerbread
-At some points i thought i was seeing the N9 review! Many similarities in UI really!
-Camera 5MP!!!! Damn... An besides that what is really shocking is "the pink tint" which is still there!!! See the pics images! DAMN!!!!
-Looks like there is still no real Smart dialing...
That's why I still use HTC sense phones coz it really does make sense!!!
Video recording has problems(big), but this isn't the ICS shown at AsiaD. I think this version is beta at best.
Sorry, it's way to big. I want a phone, not a mini tablet, and I am not blind or half blind that needs such a big screen. I love my N1 and seems like I will stay with it for now. and BTW, enough about all this shXt processing power stories. We see how in real life the SGS2 is not really faster than the N1 or NS (not talking gaming, but productivity)

Pretty good review (as always from you guys) but aren't you a little bit too "Samsung supportive"?
Now the nexus's plastic body feels premium but on the nexus S the same [plastic bopdy looked cheap... Why don't you just kneel down and worship any phone that has the biggest screen-CPU-RAM?
Do you guys think about the usability? Does anyone really wants a tablet-sized phone that gets to be more like a laptop or just an average sized good enough phone?
Let's see, tell me one (and I mean ONE) app that uses the 2 CPU cores and the 1GB of RAM (knowing how Android manages the RAM) that won't work on a single-core CPU? And the benchmarks will not do!!
All the best!
There is frame slipping, and frame duplication in the cam video sample footage.
And the UI kinda reminds me of WP7
Well, its looks good but I am not satisfied.
This is the third Nexus phone in a row with a 5MP Camera. That's not acceptable, you have breakthrough features everywhere and forget something like that? However, the build, screen, and features are top notch. It could have been a perfect phone with that minor camera upgrade.
It's funny nobody seems to have noticed, this is the first decent non-nokia penta-band phone i've seen :)
good job! choice is always a big +
honestly 5mp 8 mp, what's the real difference is quality and stablity of the sensor.
also N8 is hard to beat for Camera, so far, but rest of the specs don't make up for the for the crappy os/cpu on it!
I'm sorry, but I don't get the reviewer's comment on how ICS will end Android fragmentation. Did he mean tablet/mobile fragmention?
I presume that the various smartphone companies will still be adding skins to ICS and hence ICS will still take months to arrive. So the mobile Android ecosystem will still be fragmented?
Now it means buiseness,shere buiseness with pure pleasure.Its way ahead of d upcoming iphone 5 with ios 5.Keep my words intact until d d iphn5 comes.5/2012.
Icecream Sandwitch dats which stands between "Skill & Class".
br, 20 Oct 2011That's not the final version... It doesn't have the finalized icons/widgets... hence, the abse... moreYou're right,it is not the final version because the google bar is different and the music app is total change in Android 4.0.
This looks promising. But i feel the ui is bit sluggish going by the videos. Is it because of the high resolution?
still it has onscreen keys. So it's wrong to compare it to nokia n9, which is worlds only key less smartphone.
Actually speaking battery life is gng to be a big problem....that 1750mah battery not enough for this highly packed nexus.
That's not the final version... It doesn't have the finalized icons/widgets... hence, the absence of the new music app etc
If there's no menu key then what will happen to the current apps that require it?
no support for 3G video-call?
i prefer Galaxy SII, thank you.
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2011Why not USB 3.0? Why hardware manufactures are so slow to adapt? Why not Bluetooth 4?They cant make 8mp camera because it can affect to the Galaxy S II sales. How can the company compete itself? The bigger screen with higher resolution is a bonus. As you can see in the review, even 5 MP, it also do a good job
