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 this phone, but it comes with only 16GB of space and no way of expanding! In the age of cheap microSD cards it's essential to have one in a phone. I would bite if this were the 32GB version maybe.

Is there a difference between that version and this? Is this unlocked as well, right?

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.

I just bought one from the play store 3 weeks ago. Wish there was a 30 day price guarantee or something. Oh well.

They are moving away from expansion like that for a reason, it slows down the phone if you have things installed to it and just generally makes it less efficient. Really adding SD cards to phones was initially just supposed to be to move files over easily or to stash extra stuff. With cloud storage becoming more available, it's less important.

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.
would this be a throw away of money to only use it with t-mobile prepaid plans, non data, i bought 100 worth of minutes and can buy 50bucks now and it is still good for a year. I rarely use my phone for talking , At home i have landlines that i find more comfortable. I would pay for data if it wasnt at the month to month plan, after years on a carrier plan i went prepaid and save a lot of money. I can get wifi at all trainstations , that is faster than 3/4g, and many nyc parks have free WiFi,plus every coffeeshop,macd's and everybody else. If i could buy it for emergency and have 6 months to a year to use it, i would, but no more plans for me. I save enough to buy mice phones like this, probably in tax savings alone. i think the nevus would be able to use gps and gmaps without going on line,if maps were predownloaded. I have a samsung exhibit II that has been nothing but a POS since day one,but i can talk when i need to.
i was thinhing of rooting it to solve problems, but may be able to return and let them fix and buy this. But dont want overkill using wi-fi only

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.
not to mention the US Carriers cock blocking any updates from Samsung, so add another 4-6 months on top of the 4-6 months.

Those rich chinese fanboys would buy anything with Apple stickers.
But you need to pre-order it and sell it fast.

That is complete rubish. The new Sandisk cards get over 40MB/s and are only increasing in time. Lacking microSD cards in phones is a step back. Android isn't the best when managing external files on an SD card, you can't blame the hardware on the OS's poor functionality.

Samsung has it down perfectly, having 16GB of internal flash memory for applications and other essentials, and an optional SD card slot for a theoretical 1TB of additional space. And what about the cloud? Try streaming an uncompressed 1080p movie over the network, it will choke in most cases even on LTE.
