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+.

I really like the higher res on the Gnex but I miss the microsd card for loading mp3s/h264 videos.

Just got a like new HTC Amaze for $200. Opinions on if I should order this and sell that? If so how much can I expect to get for the Amaze? Anyone who has used both please chime in.

i'm sure S3 will get the JB update. and honestly, bigger screen, quad core vs dual core, gorilla glass 2, more modern/new. hope you were trolling.

alright, then i suggest purchasing the non US version if that matters, either way, dual core, 1.2 vs 1.4, correct me if i am wrong. still has a bigger screen, still more new, still faster. and again, will get jellybean. dont get me wrong, it's not like i own either phone. just that i dont think the S3 is obsolete as quoted in previous post
Yeah, the S3 will get JB in 4-6+ months, with additional carrier lag time and TouchWiz modification.

Don't expect developers to push out bug-free versions of JB before that timeframe, either.

The Snapdragon S4 1.4GHz in the U.S. S3 (and U.S. One X) is in fact significantly faster than the 1.2GHz TI OMAP in the Galaxy Nexus. But it doesn't matter when you're talking the next iteration of 4.0 with all the smoothness improvements it brings to the table.

Come Mid-July the Nexus will fly compared to the S3 in general use, all on inferior hardware specifications.

Yes, the Nexus phone was the one being discussed in this thread, the Galaxy Nexus.

I got one for 430 about 3 months ago. Drop the phone one day and cracked the screen. Was quoted 250-280 to fix it at the local store. But I heard Samsung would do it for 166. However! They could not fix it BC it is a Samsung UK phone. Ended up selling it on criaglist for 250. Glad o could replace it for 100 extra today. Didnt want to drop 600 on a s3. And the us s3# are only dual core. Great deal

He didnt "show" it. He was only bringing it out because they were giving all 6,000 participants in the audience a free Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 and Nexus Q
