Correct! but you can easily flash a stock Yakju rom to get the latest updates from google
Due to previous talk about Nexus brand devices receiving regular updates as soon as they are released, I was fooled into believing my Galaxy Nexus would keep up with latest Android releases. It turned out only devices bought from Google Play are regularly updated since only these are Google responsibility and are updated from Google servers. All other Galaxy Nexus devices bought from retailers, or subsidized from cell carriers have nothing to do with Google and are updated from Samsung servers. So far Samsung only provided update from 4.0 to 4.1, with no signs on when or if 4.2 will ever be made available, although Key Lime Pie is almost around the corner. To me this is a great dissapointment and it borders with false advertizing.

Which one is better...Samsung Galaxy Nexus i9250M or Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100 ?
I have come to know that Galaxy Nexus has a problem of battery timing. Waiting for recommendations.
Total flop. First battery overheats with little use. Next screen constantly blacks out as I try to text. Finally the speakers went. Can't hear anyone and they can't hear me. All in 6 days. Taking this phone back today.

I like the texture of the back cover and color of the gnex i9250, they said it's flimsy and cheap, of course it's flimsy that's why it's flexible but not cheap.
If you have galaxy nexus i9250 bought from Google play, it is a takkju or takju version you will received an ota update. The other I don't know. I love this phone, sleek design and shape.
Galaxy nexus i9250 battery is fine for moderate use in browsing,check email and calling.But if you're looking a high capacity battery, go to amazon.com and find 2800mah baixt slim battery for galaxy nexus i9250. I used it for more than a month now. I"m a heavy user and I used it for 6 hours of heavy web surfing mix with video streams,games and so on, using my WiFi. But if you use it for moderate, it will last max a day or so. Good luck guys, enjoy your galaxy nexus!!!:-)

Paulo, 19 Feb 2013Galaxy Ace 2 or Nexus?ACE 2, you must be a first time smartphone buyer. If you want a real device buy the Galaxy Nexus or otherwise the just older version Nexus S forget about the ACE. That one is nice to give to kids for them to have a phone
its d awesome for internet experience .
definately gnexi9250 is d best...
The spec of galaxy nexus is the same as the new iPhone5 :
1 GB ram, 1,2 Ghz dual core CPU, same HD camera front and back
This is a perfect low budget phone
