The Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the newest and best Android smartphone we've ever used (read our review here), had a few key facts kept under wraps for a surprisingly long time, most importantly price and release date. Official word just came in last night: the Nexus is on sale at Verizon stores today (Thursday), at a price of $300, all of which is about as expected.
The Nexus has 32GB of non-replaceable storage, so it's priced on par with phones like the iPhone 4S. You'll need a 4G plan, since the Nexus uses Verizon's frankly awesome 4G LTE network.
Writing this comment on my Verizon Galaxy Nexus right now...so far i love it!
Wondering if 4L3X's 4G battery life lasted long enough to see if anyone responded to his comment.
I have a droid razr and after rooting it and removing all the junk that it came with that was destroying my battery...and now during regular use it lasts roughly 16 hours...heavy us about 6-8 hours...so its pretty solid for a smart phoen I can't complain...
@ mbrd71,yes it did, still at 70% actually.
Good deal, but if you lost 30% in athe hour between comments, you might want to follow Delko's advice. I like the way these phones look. I have noticed that after PopSci did a whole article on these praising the NFC chips, they haven't said one thing about Verizon blocking that ability. Advertiser influence on reporting?
@mbrd71, you'd have to know if 4L3X posted his first comment when his battery was at 100%, and you'd also have to know what kind of usage he'd been doing during that time. Whenever you get a new device, running the battery down during the first day is normal simply from the usage it gets from setting it up and playing with it. I'm interested to know how it does on a regular day's usage.
Yeah even with using 4g all day browing the web you know just normal stuff nothing crazy it easy gets me through the day and of course I have to charge it every night it is a smart phone lets not have an retard illusions about it. The key is removing all the bloat that drains the battery I honestly don't notice much of a decrease in battery life from my Droid X with now having the Droid Razr even now having the dual core processor added ram and 4G network but what is really awesome that moto does is the smart tasks that allows yuo to tell your phone to do certain things automatically in certain scenarios IE when you are at work, home, when blue tooth turns on like when you get in your car and your car is like HEY PHONE YOU THERE!!!! and so on....its pretty freaking sweet feature one of the first features on a phone I have actually been excited about in a while.
I'm back, now I'm home (after a day of work and school) and it is at 19% charge...not too shabby if you ask me.
I'm writing this comment from my GN too. I am new to android and I'm sure glad I switched!
