Galaxy Nexus review | The Verge
This is a great, in depth review of the Nexus.
agreed. I read that review earlier.
That's a fantastic video. The phone is awesome and especially ICS!
Androidandme put together nice summary of hands-on reviews so far.

Merged the two threads together regarding the Verge review, man I cannot wait for this bad boy to be released on AT&T.
I might just have to bite the bullet and import.
Another good one with screenshots...
Samsung Galaxy Nexus Review
Another review, from Cnet. They were kind of harsh on it though.
Galaxy Nexus Review | Cnet
I just got back, from recon work on an Iphone site, and they are even saying wonderful things about this phone.
This review is over there as well. Some are even talking of treason.
Ehh.. It's hard for me to take these reviews seriously when their using pre-release/pre-production models (Just how current is the hardware and software?). But it's fun to read nonetheless. The review I'm really looking forward to is the Anandtech review of the SGN.
The cnet review was pretty shitty Imo... He had a negative tone throughout the entire video
Good review...Pretty much shows that for the exception of an SD card slot, this Phone Rocks...
It sure was largely negative. In fact, if you read her review of the Razr, it was clear throughout that review that she was much more jazzed about the Razr than the Nexus.
I don't know if I would call the review "harsh". I think he is correct in stating the phone is really about ICS and a pure Google experience, not hardware. Spec-wise it is in line with the RAZR, Rezound, and GS2.
I agree 100% but IMO, he made the hardware sound subpar to those other devices.
Cnet really did have a negative tone. I could even feel it while reading the review. But I take what they say with a grain of salt because to me the iPhone is not the greatest thing ever.
Even hardware wise, nexus is better or competitive at least. None of them has both HD SAMOLED and OMAP 4460. Antutu benchmark shows OMAP4460 is a little faster than Exynos at the same clock speed.
100% true....like so many of us say, these reviews are just tools, by no means should anyone deter anyone away from checking out a phone...Especially if its a review site that thinks the iPhone is in actuality the best phone out there.
Ken looks like Herman Munster in all his videos, I'd much rather prefer Bonnie Cha, she's much more realistic!
Anyway the guy is trying to bend the phone, I mean seriously? I didn't see anyone trying to bend the SGS2, and they sold a zillion of em!
Samaungs Build quality while lite, is fairly sturdy I must say...
Sturdy enough for sure. I don't see many occasions where I'll be bending my phone with enough force to snap it lol
Likewise. If anything I'm glad it has a little give god forbid I sit on it or something.
AC posted their first hands-on with GSM Nexus.
