Samsung Galaxy Nexus for Sprint Review
Crazy to imagine, but the Samsung Galaxy Nexus swooped into our hearts courtesy of Verizon way back in December, which is nearly 5 months ago. In the short time since then, we’ve seen some enticing new handsets from the competition that gives the original Ice Cream Sandwich powered smartphone a good run for its money, but at long last, it finally made its way to Sprint – with LTE connectivity in tow of course. Knowing that, will it still be enough to entice customers who know that other highly prized smartphones are on the horizon?
The packaging contains:
- microUSB cable
- Wall Charger
- Get Started Guide
- Important Information Guide
Identical in almost every way, aside from the obvious Sprint branding it’s flaunting, there is nothing we haven’t seen before with this version. Back 5 months ago, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus was the talk of the town with its clean design, but now, it’s starting to look rather dull after seeing the beauties from HTC’s camp. As expected, the construction is typical of any Samsung made device – meaning, it’s fairly lightweight and solid thanks to its plastic body.

Over the course of the last few months, we’ve been engorging ourselves with some immaculate smartphones brandishing some high quality displays. Nevertheless, the 4.65” HD (720 x 1280) Super AMOLED display of the Galaxy Nexus is still an appealing one – despite its choice of employing a PenTile matrix arrangement. In fact, looking at it from a good distance away, it still exhibits plenty of sharp details, while continuing to entice us with its oversaturated color production and wide-viewing angles.
