WARNING: Phone Volume is really crappy.. (even at highest volume) a regular call to a home/cell sounds really low at your end, as well as other end also complains low volume. I tried different tools, volume+ didn't work fine for me(it made distorted), but Volume Rockers was better. all free apps i tried. But what the hell you buy 350+tax almost 400 phone and you have to have a bit compromise on the very basic feature of call quality. If its not an issue, you can be on top of it, I like for its sleek/screen etc.. except this one imp vol issue. Note: even with 4.1.2 there is no much diff i can recognize.


Runs latest Jelly Bean 4.1.2

Jellybean has been optimized for slicker performance (Project Butter), and includes Google Now, which is a competitor to Siri. Also note that this phone supports Google Wallet.

Siri vs Google...Fight

According to several forum posts, if you have a micro-sim card (used in iPhone 4/4S), you do not need a new sim or an adapter to use it in the Galaxy Nexus (which uses mini-sim card): just slide your micro-sim directly down the middle of the mini-sim slot in Nexus, and it should work.

This is a penta-band GSM phone for AT&T, T-Mobile, many prepaid providers, and the rest of the world. It is a world-phone in a very true sense because it's completely unlocked and supports all the major bands in use.

Galaxy Nexus Extended 2000mah battery. ebay [ebay.com] or cheaper here expansys [expansys-usa.com].
Please note that the NFC device used in Google Wallet and Google Beam need a compatible battery to function. A NFC-enabled battery costs more than the generics.

The screen is a pentile HD SuperAMOLED. It is very sharp, the contrast is great, the colors are vibrant, and it is very readable in the sun. Note that there are defects in the screen of some of the phones, so please look for any problems noted in this thread at XDA Developers. [xda-developers.com]

AT&T and T-Mobile both market their HSPA+ networks as "4G". So this phone will get you the non-LTE "4G" on AT&T. All of T-Mobile's "4G" currently is HSPA+.

Quick question: If I'm already on a 3G data contract with AT&T and buy this phone, can I just put my old SIM card into this phone and my voice + 3G data plan would automatically work on this phone? (Don't have to call ATT or anything?)

Thanks. Just want to make sure there are no hassles or fees before I buy this.
Yes, it will automatically work with your current plans.

Very, very nice. I bought the unlocked international version for my wife when it was a daily steal on ebay just a few weeks ago and I've been jealous of the device ever since - now it's finally back near that price point.

If Google's selling it for $350+tax though... I wonder what the next daily steal will be? I'm kind of inclined to wait at least a little bit.
It'll be interesting to see how the international one will change. I decided to go with Play store as it has a valid 1yr warranty in the US.

The $50 plan on this page: http://prepaid-phones.t-mobile.co...y-4g-plans ?

It might be unlimited data, but only "*First 100MB at up to 4G speeds"

Wish SD would change the policy of MSRPs not being eligible for FP. The best GSM deal in town just got better.

Still holding out for 300 clams.

I agree with the first dude. Knowing Samsung and their non-Nexus handsets, it will take ~4-6 months for JB to roll out to the S3.

I checked it earlier today hoping it might drop with others coming out ( like the Samsung Galaxy S III ), but it hadn't. Thanks for the update!

Do not intend to threadcrap but where I am craigslist has a few Galaxy Notes for $400 price points. It hurts to see CL blowing SD's out of the water.

Dang, didn't want to get an Android phone but now might have to. Looking at the specs, I don't see GPS, is there a GPS in this thing?

Used, no warranty and possibly blacklisted?

Looks like we also get jelly bean today on our galaxy nexus phones.
We won't get JB until July sometime. The SDK was released to developers today, but not the actual phone update.

Also, I have a Nexus on prepaid T-Mobile and I wouldn't have it any other way. shake head
