The Samsung Galaxy Nexus was the first device to feature the Android 4.0 OS. Following its release last December, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus became Verizon’s (NYSE:VZ) flagship device and it became popular among consumers and industry watchers. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G of Verizon offers a high resolution display along with an above average battery life.
The RAM of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus was also notable and offered a good amount of internal memory compared to a number of 4G smartphones that are being offered in the market.
In addition to Verizon, Sprint (NYSE:S) is also offering the device for its customers. Due to the availability of the Galaxy Nexus through Sprint, Verizon has reportedly reduced the price tag of the device to around $49 with the typical two-year service contract.
The display of the device is considered as among the best for a high-end smartphone at 720 by 1280. The device also features standard capacitive, multi-touch gestures that can be used in navigating through the menus of the device. A scratch resistant protective layer is also featured on the display of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
Talk time on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is at around twelve hours for a single charge, which is better compared to a number of other 4G smartphones in the market. The device also features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with a dedicated PowerVR SGX540 graphics chip and an internal storage of 32GB along with a 1GB RAM.
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus also comes with a 5MP camera at the back that is capable of recording 1080p HD videos as well as geo-tagging, autofocus and taking panorama shots. The device also comes with a 1.3MP camera in front.
Among the pre-installed apps on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the proprietary YouTube video player. The original price of the device was at $299 which indicates that the current price tag makes it a rather good deal for consumers who may want to own a device using the Android 4.0 OS.
