Galaxy Nexus 1st Impressions - Worth Buying?
Galaxy Nexus 1st Impressions - Worth Buying? Out of all the smartphones that hit in 2011, the impending release of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is probably our most anticipated. (Saving the best for last?) Ever since announcing Ice Cream Sandwich back in October, consumers have been eagerly awaiting the Galaxy Nexus with expectations that the device would combine hardware and, more importantly, software into the ultimate, harmonious Android experience. After 48-hours of use, is this the best Android phone money can buy? In a word, yes, but it isn't a resounding affirmation. There are many things to like, but there are also a few things marring the experience, both hardware and software related. The good Screen. It's absolutely gorgeous. At 4.65-inches, the Nexus's display is one of the finest on the market and one of only a handful of devices to sport a full 720p (1280×720) screen. Images, video and text all look incredible. Unfortunately, that's one of the few positives things we can say about the Nexus design, but more on that in a bit. On the software side, multitasking was very intuitive, and we found Android 4.0's speech-to-text feature a nice addition. We found the calendar app to be a pleasant experience; In particular, pinch-to-zoom, which really makes it simple to plan your day accordingly. http //tchno.be/rV0S4n For more tech goodness, check us out at http //www.technobuffalo.com Follow Us on Twitter http //www.twitter.com/technobuffalo Like Us on Facebook http //www.facebook.com/technobuffalo Check Us Out on Google + http //tchno.be/qxgw8y
