basem, 30 Jan 2012this or nokia n9Hi!
Well, this is a good question. The N9 is more stylish, but it has a dead OS. :( The Galaxy Nexus is more bigger than the N9. It has a Dual Core CPU, the N9 does not have, but does NOT need one. Both lack a memory card slot. The N9 has a 16 GB and a 64 GB of version. The Galaxy Nexus a 16 GB and 32 GB. If you need many space, go for the N9. If you want a phone with a huge screen for surfing the Internet, choose the Galaxy Nexus. By the way the battery life of the Galaxy Nexus is not so great.

I have had Galaxy Nexus for 2 months now. Seemed to work great but suddenly started rebooting non-stop and couldn´t get it started. The solution from google was Hard Reset and they said they are working on it. No response yet! Many similar cases on google mobile forum. Beware! ICS??? Noy a good idea yet!
Its a smart slick phone i love it everyone got an iphone this phone matches it its a hit wi th
Me its a must have
Why dosen't it have 8 megapixel camera instead of 5 megapixel. It's camera quality is good but not good as samsung galaxy s2. This phone has 720p hd display which is very good.
My galaxy nexus is good but ice-cream sandwich makes it incompatible with a lot of non-market apps which is a real shame. You cannot (as far as i know) take screenshots because it cannot be rooted with z4root. Overall UI is good and smooth even with low storage space available. Great phone but i advise people to get it on a plan instead of outright. And no expandable memory is a real bitch :(
Today is my first day with this phone, I replaced my nice i9000.
a) From normal to landscape and vice-verse the phone is so slow, regardless of what you are doing. Takes about 3 seconds to do this.
B) When coming back from the menu to the normal desk area, the transition is kind of laggy, not so smooth.
C) From apps to widgets it also lags a little.
D) The phone is kind of big and I can't reach the screen to check notifications and so on. I guess I will get used.
E) Camera has very little settings/options to choose from.
I can't report on battery details yet, perhaps within a week or so.
ICS is like a new OS. I don't know if it gets any smoother than Gingerbread, perhaps. However, I don't see the new "eyecandie" or new options so useful. It's pretty much things you will barely use in real life.
Overall seems really nice, but not a phone that would make me drool

It's the only thing stopping me from loving the GN. When I put it next to my gf iPhone it's a big difference, it's yellowish and grey. It's something that many others are facing too: http://www.stuff-review.com/2011-11/samsung-galaxy-nexus-display-has-a-slight-yellow-tinge/

Anonymous, 25 Jan 2012Can the Nexus video call? I can't seem to find the option through contacts.Yes it can. You have to use Skype, Google+ or Google talk.
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2012hey friends! which is a better phone? samsung galaxy s2 or galaxy nexus?? can we upgrade ginge... moreThe excellent:
- Software. You've got updates and fixes.
- GPS. Locks fast (5-8 seconds in my car).
- Screen. The best screen today, period. I've used them all. Contrary to what others are saying, this is being advertised not for the camera, but for the screen and the software (the camera _software_ and the "Nexus" debate).
- Secondary camera: very nice.
- Hardware performance. You can notice lags rarely. Mainly on the launcher. But it feels fast especially on demanding tasks, which is good. The Galaxy S II has some components that are better (the GPU, I believe).
- Battery. It's not abysmal like everyone else is saying. It's expected for a phone with this large screen. I'm talking about the GSM version...
- Compatibility. Some apps are still not fine tuned for ICS. Skype is a notable example.
- Reception. On par with my Milestone/Droid. Better than the Nexus S. Better than all my previous Nokias.
- Loudspeaker. Could be louder.
- Camera. It's not bad. The software makes up for a lot of its deficiencies and the zero-lag (provided by the hardware) is awesome. But at 5mpx, there is only so much that you can do... for today's standards, it lacks.
Those are my impressions after 3 weeks. If mostly of what you care about are in the "excellent" and "good" criteria (especially the screen!), go for it and you won't regret. And of course, as long as the camera is not a huge compromise for you. Remember: it's not bad by itself. It's that today (and yesterday, too --- see GSII), we have much better options.
If any of the "bad" is a deal breaker for you, then forget it.
Overall, it's the best phone I've ever had: bunch of Nokias, the first iPhone, HTC Magic, Milestone, iPhone 4, Nexus S, HTC Sensation, and finally this. This felt to me like a huge update to previous stuff. I value screen, performance, GPS, secondary camera (gtalk chat a lot) and the software/freedom of the Nexus. It's no wonder I bought the GNex and I'm extremely satisfied. And no, definitely no iPhone 4S for me.
shan008, 25 Jan 2012dude, juz a piece of advice from me.. get ur language sharpened.. its "own" not owen... moreI believe he did try his best to fix his grammar. He has a point though. Its pretty useless saying that phones are not good. We do have different points of view on phones. So its better if we say we dont like it coz it doesnt suit us. ^_^
BTW "BAD MOUTH" means that your saying bad about something. but the way he used it I supposed he meant Bad Mouthing the phone...
