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+.

anyone know if the tmobile 50/month unlimited talk/data/txt is still available?
Use the $45 straight talk plan. It's unlimited everything and is on the same Tmobile prepaid network. You can choose between the AT&T prepaid or Tmobile Prepaid.

Guys, I'm eligible for upgrade with AT&T (about 5 months left in contract). Shall I buy this or shall I buy a discounted phone from AT&T with 2-yr contract? Also I'm on the grand-fathered unlimited data plan.. Any advice?

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.
The US version of the S3 is dual core.

Thanks!!!

The Galaxy Nexus features a 4.65-inch 1280×720-pixel HD Super AMOLED PenTile[35] curved glass display,[5] a dual-core 1.2 GHz TI OMAP 4460 processor (ARM Cortex-A9)[36] with an accompanying PowerVR SGX540,[37] 1 GB of RAM; a 1,750 mAh battery (1,850 mAh LTE version); 1.3 MP front camera and 5 MP rear camera (with zero shutter lag) capable of 1080p video with the rear camera and 720p with the front camera;[38] 4G; Wi-Fi a/b/g/n; Bluetooth; GPS, barometer; NFC;[33] and 16 GB or 32 GB of internal storage. The Galaxy Nexus lacks a microSD card slot and cannot operate as a USB Mass Storage Device(UMS). The device will still allow storage and access to internal memory through MTP protocol when connected to a PC that supports MTP.

So no SD slot, only 5mp camera, but 1080 video with HD out, wonder if it comes with the HDMI converter cable? according to What's In The Box:

Unlocked Galaxy Nexus GSM/HSPA+ phone
USB sync/charge cable
Dual-voltage USB wall charger
Stereo earbud headphones
Quickstart guide

Seems it does not come with the HDMI cable. Amazing screen! Decisions... decisions...

Wait, the specs don't match, this phone has no 4G, right? The wiki page claims 4G?

I would buy this now, and then upgrade to iPhone 5 in October and keep the unlimited plan.
I don't like iPhone, so I would sell it for profit right away. You should make about $450 in profit.

There're now 5 Nexus devices total. Galaxy Nexus was the third, and like the first two is a phone. The new Nexus 7 is the fourth but it's a tablet rather than a phone. The Nexus Q is the fifth, but it's a media device.

Will this work on t-mobile web2go plan? I know they started cracking down on the nexus one. Anyone using this phone on that data plan?

I sold my new iPhone 4S last year, and I made 500 bucks.
But it comes with 2-year contract.
