Samsung Galaxy Nexus Video Review
      #41785 - 12/07/11 04:49 PM

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is undeniably one of the hottest phones of 2011. After all, like the once-a-year iPhone, there's only one official Google pure Android experience phone each year. While last year's Nexus S, also made by Samsung, was a disappointment when it came to groundbreaking specs, it was an absolute pleasure to use thanks to the pure experience and frequent early OS updates. The Galaxy Nexus, like the original Nexus by HTC, is back to seriously high end hardware.

The phone runs on a 1.2GHz TI dual core CPU with a gig of RAM, and it's the first phone to run Android OS 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It has a gorgeous 720p Super AMOLED display, 16 gigs of internal storage and the fastest camera we've seen on a smartphone. Alas, like the Nexus S, there's no expansion card slot. It has a curved contour display and Samsung's unmistakable design esthetic taken from the Galaxy S II line. But the Galaxy Nexus has more complex and interesting curves that lend class to this otherwise unabashedly plastic phone.

In this video, we take a look at the international version that's available from importers here in the US for around $750. It has pentaband 3G/4G HSPA+ 21Mbps on the AT&T and T-Mobile bands, and it's quad band GSM/EDGE.

If you're interested in the Verizon version, check out our full Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Verizon full review.

Hey Lisa,

Just wanted to point out that the GSM version of this device has an old-school SIM. I picked one up for development purposes and was mildly bummed to see that it didn't have the newer MicroSIM configuration like the Verizon-branded version does.
