The Google Nexus phone, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G, was the first Android phone to come in the new Ice Cream Sandwich flavor when it was released last December from Verizon Wireless in the US. Although the Android 4.0 ICS is its main feature it is fair to call as the ‘first ICS phone’ because it scores a perfect hundred in many other features as well- dual core 1.2 GHz processor, high resolution screen, Near Frequency Communications support and 5 MP camera that supports 1080p HD video recording.
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G is the ultimate when it comes to smartphones supporting 4G LTE networks- offering high-end features with superior performance and user facilities. Sprint also released the Android ICS phone and Verizon has slashed the Google Nexus 4G prices to just $49 for a new two year contract and data plan. The noncontract original, price of the phone being $299, the original price, is a darned strong bet.
The display screen is a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280p and 316ppi pixel density. The capacitive screen that bears a scratch resistant gorilla glass surface supports multi touch gestures and is simply one of the best offerings for smartphones. The 4G phone has Wi-Fi connectivity also.
These gadgets are run by a Cortex A9 1.2 GHz processor, have 1 GB RAM and 32 GB internal memory, and even have a dedicated graphics chip- PowerVR SGX540! Both the processor and the graphics chip are part of the OMAP 4460 Texas Instruments microchip package. The primary rear camera is a 5 MP offering with 1080p HD video recording, autofocus, panorama burst mode and a host of other features, and there is a front, secondary camera of 1.3 MP intended for video chatting too. NFC support completes the rich lineup.
