Radio, 27 Dec 2011Samsung has failed with this device for not having an FM radiodon't be so cheap , listen to internet radios!!!
can someone pls confirm there's no TV-OUT? i would be so disappointing!
DenisBilali, 28 Dec 2011Before I bought it, I watched every video in you tube, benchmarks and etc etc. In every video ... moreHonestly, I'm not a heavy user, so number is not that important for me, as long as it perform in real life, no lag in everyday use, I'll be happy.
Screen is tied for me ( samoled plus & gorilla glass vs samoled hd )
is browsing really that good? they're both using 1.2ghz procc & i believe exynos + Mali a better combination?
battery : I have big concern, it is just 100mah larger than sgs2, for a bigger screen.. & isnít samoled plus is a more battery saving than samoled?
camera : 9/10? seriously? Iíve yet to find one review that rate the camera above average?
overall experience is 10/10? 100% better than s2?
dude, that is so wrong.
Other things like lower resolution for front cam, no microsd support, (radio is small matter for me, no prob)
But I must say that I like the design better.. Also about the same thickness as my s2 on 2000mah extended batt.
zero shutter lag is also impressive.
Ics will also comes to s2.
The only prob is, I donít have the patience to wait..
Damn, the heart say go for it, the head say wait & see how Samsung integrate Ics into s2..
thanks for ur info, glad that u like it.. i'll make up my mind after g.nexus officially launched here in a week or so..
Since I have to have the latest software updates I'm going for the GN despite any faults. A very well balanced and thorough review that helped me make my mind: http://www.stuff-review.com/2011-12/samsung-galaxy-nexus-complete-review/
impiejot, 28 Dec 2011pls elaborate..
i own s2 & thinking of changing to G.Nexus,
but comparing the specs,... moreBefore I bought it, I watched every video in you tube, benchmarks and etc etc. In every video posted they show sgs2 as the winner expect for browsing speed. After a little research I came to something interesting, in fact benchmarks are made for android 2.3. So the numbers shown there are not so important.
Here is a quick review.
browser performance 10/10
speaker loudness 6/10
for me overall experience is 10/10
This android 4.0 is not the same like in sgs2.
Remember I own both sgs2 also, for my taste The galaxy nexus is 100% better

i own s2 & thinking of changing to G.Nexus,
but comparing the specs, s2 is better me think,
it will get ics 1st Q next year.
pls write your own unbias comparison,
maybe i'd change to g.nexus rather than wait for s3
DenisBilali, 27 Dec 2011I guess u own a gs2. I have both and when I compare s2 with nexus. Makes me feel sad about the... moreIm talking about the S2 HD Lte. You can also see the bench mark test. S2 HD Lte out scores the Nexus. The Nexus is also limited on the Lte frequency (700). Where as the s2 Hd Lte has 3 choises (800/1800/2600). The "S" IS the Samsung Flagship. Proven on paper, numbers and bench mark tests. I'm not knocking you for owning a Nexus. To each their own. I just prefer a 1st place winner over a 2nd place runner-up.
sarjil, 17 Dec 2011I heard from people this phone its really Awesome. I am plaining to get this Phone. what shoul... moreReally , you get Galaxy Nexus.

Makes me feel sad about the s2. U just go ahead and calculate the numbers in paper, but in real life its different.

Z3K4S, 25 Dec 2011is the galaxy Nexus better or the Galaxy s2? plz help meno no no just galaxy s ||
Z3K4S, 25 Dec 2011is the galaxy Nexus better or the Galaxy s2? plz help meComparing the specs of S2HD-Lte vs Nexus:
1. Nexus has weaker a weaker front camera
2. Nexus has weaker a weaker back camera
3. Nexus has slower CPU speed (1.2 vs 1.5)
4. Nexus does not have expandable memory
5. Nexus has a weaker battery. (granted the slower CPU speed requires less battery, but the screen size and resolution is the same as S2HD-lte)
The GS2 is known as the Galaxy Flagship for a reason.
I have had 2 of these phones in 2 days. The screen is awesome, colours superb. It is as fast as a bat out of hell but the big letdown has been the battery and the fact that it wont get a signal. I took the first back and the guy thought I had a dud and replaced it for me but the second has the same issue. No signal most of the time, going up to one to one bar. Emergency calls only displays constantly on screen. I will be taking it back to Optus (AU) and getting out of the contract, it is a phone after all and multimedia device secondly. I have an iPad to keep me amused with all the other stuff. A shame really, ice cream sandwich is great.

Here you don't have the branded version. I love my nexus. I also like the fact that there's no 'sense' of 'skin' on the nexus. It's pure...fast and good looking
