Galaxy Nexus On fool day, Samsung Galaxy Nexus (first available in Nov 2011 at the price of $5,398) was on sale at all registered dealers at the discount price of $3,698.
Rumour has it that the substantial reduction of retail price is to compete with the Japan-imported Nexus at a cut-throat price of below $2,900. Regardless whatever reasons, the reduced price of $3,698 is very
attractive and irresistable, especially the smartphone is equipped with such a strong specification (see below specification in details). Therefore, I bought one in Broadway @Elements, with an official battery,
additional battery charger, crystal clear protection film, pouch and a Melody water bottle as free gifts. To have a good protection, I bought a Mercury Jelly case in white color at $55 two days later (another one in
blue color at $35 the week after for standby purpose).
To have a brief introduction, the Galaxy Nexus is the third official phone contracted by Google and the first phone to come with Android 4.0 (updated to 4.02 when purchased and 4.1 Jelly Bean to be updated in July)
Ice Cream Sandwich. Specs include a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 4.65 inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display, a 5 megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a 1.3 megapixel camera
and a lot more. The phone features NFC-based sharing with a feature called Androdid Beam, face-recognition unlocking, advanced battery and data monitoring options and a lot more that is possible with the advent of
The later Android 4.1, Jelly Bean, is the fastest and smoothest version of Android yet. Jelly Bean improves on the simplicity and beauty of Android 4.0, and introduces a new Google search experience on Android.
