“It is, without a doubt, the best Android smartphone of the year.”
With that glowing recommendation, IGN gives the Galaxy Nexus a resounding 9.5 rating. Here are a few more quotes worthy of mention:
- The Super AMOLED display is absolutely stunning, with crisp visuals, bright and vibrant colors, and some of the deepest, richest blacks you’ll encounter on a mobile device.
- The camera suffers in low-light scenarios, but it’s exceptionally good at image stabilization and auto-focusing in both video and stills. Even during one of the bumpiest bus rides of my life, the Galaxy Nexus’ video recording kept steady, whereas other devices would have shown every bump in the road.
- Google has taken Android’s UI and refined it with more intuitive menu design, richer graphics and expanded widget support.
- Android 4.0 is easily the most refined version of the OS that I have encountered, and it resolves many of the issues I had found with earlier builds, primarily the fragmentation between devices.
- There’s no questioning that the Galaxy Nexus is an incredible device, but it was designed to perfectly complement the software it carries, not break any barriers in terms of specs or hardware design.
