Verizon Galaxy Nexus Review

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Review

Here in the LTE version of the newest Google hero phone, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus (also known as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus or Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE) has not only the unique claim to running Google's newest mobile operating system Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich first, it's also connected to the fastest network in the states, and best of all: you can go to your corner Verizon store and purchase one, unlike the international edition. All that said, you've really got the same device only ever so slightly modified for this particular carrier: Google's vanilla hero phone remains nearly as pure as its first release internationally. What you're going to get here is another perspective on the Galaxy Nexus in general, how ICS handles our day to day, and what it means to own the LTE version of this device here in the USA.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Gaming Demo with Riptide GP and ShadowGun

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Gaming Demo with Riptide GP and ShadowGun

There are a couple of games out there right now that show off the graphics finesse of whatever platform you play them on quite well, and in quite an easily comparable sense when it comes down to it, those being Riptide GP, a jet-ski racing game, and ShadowGun, a 3rd person shooter - today we've got these games being demonstrated on Verizon's LTE version of the Galaxy Nexus. This device is the first to work natively with Google's mobile OS by the name of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and runs a Texas Instruments OMAP4 1.2GHz dual-core processor. Is it enough to compete with such gaming titans as the ultra-powerful NIVIDA Tegra 3 quad-core processor toting ASUS Transformer Prime, or perhaps the iPad 2 for good measure?

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Accessories Hands-On

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Accessories Hands-On

We didn't just grab the new Verizon Galaxy Nexus yesterday, we picked up the official accessories too, so whether you're concerned about power-hungry LTE or just want to treat your new toy while you're still in the honeymoon period, there's probably something for you. For most it's the extended battery ($49.99) that will hold most appeal, an NFC-enabled 2,100 mAh Li-Ion pack offering an extra jolt of runtime at the expense of a slightly bigger phone in the hand.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Hands-on

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Hands-on

After weeks of waiting, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus LTE has finally arrived. It's hardly an unfamiliar phone - after all, we reviewed the HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus back in November, coming away charmed by its combination of 720p HD display and Ice Cream Sandwich OS - but it brings with it a few advantages and a few potential compromises too. 4G means high-speed downloads on a par with what many people expect from their home broadband connection, assuming you have the coverage, but we've also grown used to LTE phones chewing through battery life in record time. Read on for our first impressions.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus gets interactive support simulator, help with Android 4.0 ICS

Verizon Galaxy Nexus gets interactive support simulator, help with Android 4.0 ICS

Though the differences between the original Galaxy Nexus that's been released a couple of weeks ago by Samsung internationally and the Verizon 4G LTE version of the handset are few, Verizon has gone above and beyond the call of duty in creating an interactive "this is how you do it" page for the device's relatively new software. What you'll be able to do on this Samsung Galaxy Nexus support simulator is find out how to access and use everything from Phone Calls to Android Beam, all of this fully activated and ready to go on the handset set to release SOON (tomorrow, if you believe the whispers from above.)

Verizon Galaxy Nexus set for December 15th says multiple sources

Verizon Galaxy Nexus set for December 15th says multiple sources

This week we've got more sources than we know what to do with telling us that Verizon's new release date for the Galaxy Nexus is no later than December 15th - no sooner, either, if you put it that way. This device has been one of the most hotly debated madness inciters in months as it was released in the UK several weeks before being dropped here in the USA through its first and only carrier: Verizon. This device is the first device to carry Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is Samsung / Google / Verizon's hero phone when it's released later this week - we hope!

Verizon 4G LTE back online

Verizon 4G LTE back online

Verizon Wireless has restored its 4G LTE network, following an outage over the past 24-36 hours that saw customers dumped back onto 3G or even 2G data connections. The cause of the outage is yet to be confirmed - Verizon said only that it was a "technical issue" - but subscribers across the US were impacted as the high-speed service went offline, embarrassingly just days after the carrier had celebrated its first year of 4G service.

This Verizon Galaxy Nexus extended battery extends my tears for waiting

This Verizon Galaxy Nexus extended battery extends my tears for waiting

Back a little less than a year ago when the first Verizon LTE-laden Android smartphone was released, that being the HTC ThunderBolt for all you kids out there, it had an awesome optional extended battery that you could pick up to extend the battery time to a plausible amount of time - this being more than the 4 hours of regular time you got with LTE back in the day. Now we've got another device, the Galaxy Nexus, with an extended battery appearing for it, and though this this isn't the only other extended battery of its kind, it does remind me of the whoa I felt at the hands of the rogue FedEx delivery man I was subject to back then the day before CTIA, spring 2011.
