Samsung Galaxy Nexus Review Google and Samsung have come together to create one of the most exciting Android devices of the year: the Galaxy Nexus, which is the third generation successor to Googleâ€™s Nexus One and Nexus S. The smartphone made its debut in Europe on November 17, 2011 and in the U.S. on December 15, 2011. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus comes loaded with some very impressive hardware and more importantly, the latest Android OS. However, be warned, it also has its fair share of drawbacks. Galaxy Nexus Review: Pros â€¢ Android 4.0 â€¢ Superb HD Screen â€¢ NFC enabled â€¢ Face Lock Galaxy Nexus Review: Cons â€¢ 5-magapixel camera (only) â€¢ No expandable memory â€¢ No FM radio â€¢ Relatively limited customization options Galaxy Nexus: Hardware The Galaxy Nexus packs in some very impressive hardware and the crown jewel is arguably the 720Ã—1280 pixel resolution 4.65″ Super AMOLED HD screen. The screen features a 316ppi pixel density, which is less dense than the iPhone 4Sâ€™s 329ppi but it is still the finest in the market right now on account of the enhanced resolution. It is not just the display that is designed to amaze, the Galaxy Nexus also comes with a dual-core 1.2Ghz TI OMAP 4460 processor and 1GB RAM. While users can opt for either the 16GB or 32GB variant it is somewhat disappointing to note that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus does not feature external memory capability. Something that is welcome, however, is the inclusion of the NFC chip. This technology is yet to mature in the U.S. but as retailers around the world begin to experiment and deploy the technology in larger numbers, there is no doubt that it has a lot of potential.
