Samsung Galaxy Nexus: Verizon launches the best Android phone

Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Verizon has finally been launched. It is the best Android smart phone available on the network
With the plethora of smartphones flooding the market, a guy in search of the best one to upgrade his old device can get in a fix. There are so many combinations of wonderful specs that creating a priority requirement for oneself is more important than going out with a vague idea to get the best out there.
Someone who is is sure on one thing, that he would want the latest Google software, has a number of options. Unfortunately, no device has all the latest and greatest out there. If it were, it would either be too costly or too time-consuming to fit all that awesomeness of processing power, memory, screen resolution and camera in a single smartphone.
Looking at the software side, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the first device to come preloaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Even though other manufacturers, such as Motorola, have said that their top smartphones, like the Droid Razr, will get the ICS update, the release date has not been announced so nothing can be said on that.
For someone looking for 4G LTE speeds, then the Motorola Droid Razr and the HTC Rezound are coming packed with this feature.
Even with these specs, Motorola Droid Razr and Samsung Galaxy Nexus are not hailed without their flaws.
Kent German and Jessica Dolcourt reviewed the Galaxy Nexus and declared that even though ICS may be a major differentiator now, in a few months when other devices have the software, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus may not seem like top dog.
Their review stated, “As the first U.S. phone with Ice Cream Sandwich, Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus takes a coveted, solitary step forward. However, once other premium handsets receive the updated Android OS, the Galaxy Nexus will lose some of its competitive edge.”
Galaxy Nexus has the edge with its beautiful screen and top notch processing power but its hardware leaves one cold. Lacking in the Nexus is the slot for expandable memory and at 5-megapixel, it is a weak attraction in the camera. Then the lack of support for Google Wallet, a feature enabled on the previous Google Android Nexus device, makes one stop before going for the Verizon gadget.
Kent German recommends the phone, but adds, “Yes, I’d recommend it. It appears to be a very good phone. It’s not perfect, but no phone is.”
