the phone is really great, very smooth, and a very nice screen, but there is one thing that made me sell it within one week, battery life while browsing the internet is a joke, and I do a lot of browsing on my phone, so if you'll do a lot of browsing on the galaxy nexus beware.
The display brightness is far lower than GS2 (which itself was considered lower in your review). How about its performance in bright sunlight? No hint on it.
Probably this is the first review about the device which did not brag much about it. I find this device is celebrated much by across most reviewers and what I get from your review is, this device is no stellar.
Finally, I am confused if I have to get this (only after reading this review) considering the price it is selling around.
Cod3rror, 01 Jan 2012TouchWiz is awesome! Much better than stock Google.Against Google's ICS UI? You have GOT to be kidding me.
Ya ok GS2 is better on paper but this browser with this smooth UI , is unique .
Im an apple user & im enjoying my ass off from the day I bought GN ! I never had an android phone before cuz GS2 always felt like a plastic toy in my hands and the SuperAmoled looow reselution screen on S2 really sux
BTW this phone has better camera than galaxy s2, camera came with tap to focus when you shooting video and 1.3 720p front facing camera
I'm hearing sales of this phone are very poor and it's unlikely the handset will have a shelf life beyond 3-6 months.
the ui visual design may not be pretty, its stock android anyway and meant to be a reference device...but it seems its consumer friendly enough, so i'm returning to android...
the quality of an image has more to do with the sensor, lens and the aperture rather than megapixels.
The myth about more megapixels equals better image is plain wrong.
Dave, 31 Dec 2011Why would you get this phone when the Galaxy S 2 is miles better and when it gets Ice Cream it... moreGalaxy s II will receive the version with touchwiz which plain sucks.it looks like gingerbread it feels like gingerbread and hell the first impressions will be IT IS GINGERBREAD.its already leaked you can try it.but it sucks with that touchwiz 4 just saying.
Tried this in a mobile store. I thought the screen was good and the colour was nice but that was about it as. The build on this phone is just terriable and cheap and I couldn't believe the fact that this super phone was laggy.
SE, 31 Dec 2011"first droid phone with a 720p screen" = ?
So GSM mentions US and South Korea but... moreI think theyre talking about phones that go on sale globally not only available in japan,
but maybe youre right and I missed some global phone...
"first droid phone with a 720p screen" = ?
So GSM mentions US and South Korea but fail to mention the various droids from Japan (released since Nov) that far eclipses almost all of the specs quoted here bar not having ICS.
