Google's 2012 flagship Android Phone is the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. When released in December 2011, it was the most advanced Android smartphone on the market, but how has competition from the Samsung Galaxy S III, HTC One X and other mid-year models.
The Galaxy Nexus is the successor to the Nexus S and was the first device released running Android 4.0, aka Ice Cream Sandwich, a major revamp of the Android OS. It is also the first handset to run Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean."
A dual-core 1.2GHz TI ARM CPU powers the phone, while a large 4.65-inch AMOLED 720p HD touchscreen - the first of its kind seen on a phone - provides the interface. Other features include Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, NFC, and LTE compatibility for Verizon Wireless.
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is only sold in the U.S. by Verizon and Sprint and went on sale in December 2011. The direct price is $199, though you can find much better pricing from the third-party retailers below.
While the GSM version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has received an update to the latest version of Android, v4.1 Jelly Bean, the Verizon and Sprint versions have not yet been updated.
