Samsung Galaxy Nexus for Sprint Review

0. phoneArena posted on 07 May 2012, 07:41

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...

Not like the Nexus One, if that's what you mean. I own the Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus One - the G'Nex screen has been problem free for me.

So even though the VZW edition had same problems it got a much higher score? Biased

Well this is probably being compared now to the S3 and the One X...

Good point. Sorry wasn't thinking there. But yeah this thing will get killed by the S3 and already has by the forthcoming Evo LTE

Release date: A phone released a year ago and rated as excellent should not be compared to a device that has just came out and has received the same rating. As the technology evolves, it is logical that the new models should meet higher expectations

I understand this but how about:
Sluggish performance
Choppy web browsing
in a GALAXY NEXUS with the last 4.0.4 update, when these problems weren't in the first version some months ago, maybe a malfunction in your unit?

Please remove the ratings from the reviews !

yes kshell1 i dont understand how verizon's version could get such a high score and sprint's version drop 2 points. they are identical. i agree phone arena has lots of biases.

Maybe becaue VZW has an actual LTE network. I have the Sprint GN and I'm happy with it but I'm also not a power user. It has everything I need, I love the screen and it's fast enugh for me and I also enjoy the fact I will be getting updates pretty quick. #fingerscrossed
