Thursday Poll: Is the Galaxy Nexus Your Next Device?

This has quickly turned into Samsung Galaxy Nexus hypebeast week as we lead up to the CTIA event that should answer all of our questions.  So far though, we have a set of specs that match up to what our sources have told us, a beautiful render, a potential release date of 10/27, and a couple of teaser videos to make your mouth water.  Things around the Android world are getting incredibly exciting – new Nexus on Verizon for the first time that’s running the newest and mostly unleaked version of Android.

There is nothing quite like a Nexus device if you are an Android enthusiast, so even though this is not official just yet, we want to know if any of you have already made up your mind on it.  Is the G-Nex your next phone?

Is the Galaxy Nexus Your Next Device?

    I’ve been to the local Samsung flagship store in Bangalore twice to ask if they have any inside info about the arrival of this thing and they seemed as clueless as me. One thing they did say is that they’re expecting it by the end of  November and that it might outsell the mighty GS2. 😮

    I’m leaving back to the UK in November anyway, I’m ready to pay SIM-free for this thing if takes longer to arrive on one of the networks (O2 and Vodafone being my only options as I don’t have any faith in the others incl. T-Mo)..

  • Thank you for your whole effort on this website. Kate takes pleasure in participating in investigations and it’s simple to grasp why. Almost all notice all about the dynamic way you offer worthwhile tips by means of this web blog and welcome participation from website visitors on the idea and my child is actually starting to learn a whole lot. Take advantage of the rest of the new year. You have been doing a brilliant job.

  • This appears to be the upgrade device for my OG Droid. I love Motorola but they just can’t get the specs together to compete with a device like the G-Nex. 

  • I wanted to post you one very small remark so as to give thanks over again for your personal amazing opinions you’ve featured on this site. It’s really pretty open-handed with you in giving unreservedly what some people could have made available for an e-book to make some money for themselves, chiefly seeing that you could possibly have done it in case you desired. The good tips also served to become great way to know that other individuals have a similar fervor like my personal own to learn a lot more with regard to this issue. I’m certain there are a lot more pleasant moments in the future for many who check out your website.

     i hope its not a US only thing 🙁 if i can’t get it on bell i will be all kinds of sad and “stuck” with a rooted atrix and nothing worth using an upgrade on 🙁

    I’ll Rock the Bionic till the Quad Cores come out.

  • the remaining specs might make me overlook the fact that i dont entirely want such a large 4.6″ phone…what to do what to do.

  • I take that back. It IS the new device for me. 

  • I’m on my second OG Droid, and while the memories of our good days have been keeping the relationship going, it’s been rocky and slow. I’ve been waiting for the phone that would give me the same sense of future-proof that the Droid gave me. I mean, it’s been two years next month since the phone came out. Not so shabby. And this new Nexus looks to be the sure bet for the next 2 years of phone use, even after the Bionic was a disappointment. 

    In other words I NEED THIS PHONE.

  • Djenks24

    Can anyone with a Samsung phone tell me anything about the call quality and how well they carry a signal? My Android experience is OG Droid, Droid X, and Thunderbolt.  The Motorola’s just seem to have better call quality. I want this phone but not if I have to put up with bad call quality.

  • Anonymous

    I’m as giddy as a school girl about this thing

  • After seeing the leaked specs, yes. Without a doubt this will be my next phone, and I was open to swapping my OG for whatever iPhone Apple announced.

  • if it comes to t-mobile i’d almost buy it blindly but i’m not going to break contract and switch to a way more expensive verizon contract for it…

  • It would be if it had a qwerty version available!

  • kublikon

    wait…let me think about it…YES!

    Hope they realize the demand for this phone….otherwise they’ll be on back-order for weeks……

    I have two months to go before I can buy, but hoping VZW lets me upgrade early.

  • 1TallTXn

    I said “we’ll see” but the answer is most likely. Assuming it lives up to expectations and actually is for VZW.

    I voted no, simply cuz when my contract is up in 3/13 i’m sure there’ll be a phone that can wash my dishes for me 🙂

      Really?  I had to have the OG droid for the keyboard, and I never use it.

  • Kianjudah

    I’m really excited about this phone. I mean, it’s kind of like a dream come true, having a Nexus device on Verizon!!! BUT, I know some of you will croak over this, but I really like the new skin on Moto devices. Furthermore, it’s kinda hard to justify getting a dual-core device if quad-core devices are right around the corner. I mean, if the screen on the new Nexus is really sweet then that would make a huge difference, and if it’s unlocked and fully rootable/romable then that also makes a huge difference. Hmm…decisions, decisions. 

    • Anonymous

      You’ll never buy a phone if you keep waiting on what’s around the Corner…#just saying.

  • No. But only because when I’ll be due for upgrade there will be better devices. 🙂 If I was able to upgrade now that would be THE phone.

    I’m glad to have my Bionic.  But I’m pretty jealous.  I never, ever thought this would happen on Verizon.  I don’t know if I could have held on another two months with my OGD.  Oh well, as long as it gets ICS, I’ll be happy.  And I’ll have my next upgrade two months sooner than everyone buying this.

  • Anonymous

    All sane people will vote “Will decide when it is actually announced.”
    Deciding to buy something sight unseen and off of rumors is just plain bad consumerism.
    Deciding not to buy something, if you are actually looking for something new, without seeing it first, is just being closed minded.

    On paper, this is it, the big one… the phone we’ve all been waiting for.  Being realistic, it’s set up to be the most colossal disappointment since learning the truth about Santa.  I almost feel like the truth will be near one of these two extremes, not somewhere in the middle like it usually is.

    its not my next device if it’s the size of a small tablet. 4.65″ display. 5MP camera? 1750 mAh battery? Yea, that should last about an hour or 2.

    • Anonymous

      You have no idea about the software optimization in ICS.  Battery life isn’t entirely related to the size of the battery.  And 1750mAh is a decent size.  How ’bout maybe giving it a chance before you judge?

    What are the physical dimensions of the Nexus? Thinness isn’t the most important dimension. Hoping this isn’t a brick. 

    • It’s more like a banana than a brick lol, now you can always look happy to see your girlfriend.

      I actually hope it has a more sturdy build than the Last Verizon Samsung Phone. I returned the Droid Charge after one day, in exchange for the sturdier feeling HTC T-Bolt, Charge didn’t have Gorilla glass either, so that was a deal killer as well. I love this nexus phone idea on Verizon but there are just some things that are deal killers (Gorilla glass – a must, solid phone – absolutely). I put my phones through a lot and have appreciated the tougher phones that I have had (OG Droid, DX, DX2, T-Bolt).


      • Nielsen345

        pretty sure the charge has gorilla glass

    • Nick

      Based on the rumored specs it’s likely going to be a brick. So, yes, you’ll likely look like an idiot putting it against your face. 

      • John

        at 9mm thin, it won’t be a brick.. it will be more like a plate rofl

      • Alan

        If that 4.65 inch screen rumor is true and it ends up being the same size or larger than VZW’s other 4.3 inch phones then it’s a deal breaker for me.

      • Goblueboy

        I look like an idiot with a lot of electronics I buy. My headphones are huge cans, yet they sound so good. Just because it’s big doesn’t mean it won’t be good. I love that shit.

      4.65 inch screen, but apparently there won’t be any physical buttons. So I would say it would be as big as maybe the DroidX but much thinner. And “ahead of the curve”.

    • Anonymous

      Just go buy a 7″ Galaxy Tab and use that for a few weeks so this will feel small.

      My Droid X felt huge at first but now anything less than 4″ seems small.  My Droid Incredible 2 is an awesome device, but I do miss the extra screen real estate of the X.  And the X carried well because of only the bulge being thick and the rest very thin.  I am not too worried and I don’t have the largest hands either.

    Is the Bionic that bad? At least a third of the Bionic owners here are already considering upgrading.

    Check this: On the Sept. 21 poll, 13% of respondents said they have the Bionic. And here, only 8% of people are saying the Galaxy Nexus is definitely not their next phone. So at least 5% of poll respondents have the Bionic and are already considering upgrading… assuming the sampling is representative. The real figure is even higher than 5%, because more people have the Bionic now, and not everyone saying “No” on this poll has a Bionic.

    Or the Bionic owners like to think they’re in the market to upgrade when they really aren’t. Poseurs.

    I want this phone but there are things I need from a phone if I am going to be with it for 2 years, be on verizon for 1. As much as they piss me off sometimes they do have the best network and I won’t go to so crappy network for a better phone, whats the point if you don’t have service? It needs to be 4G, going to have a new phone for 2 years and can’t access the new network? No thanks. I’m not to worried about the specs at this point because I know they will be good with all these phones setting a new standard. Unlocked bootloader would be nice but not a deal breaker. Once they announce on tuesday I will make my decsion from there. The OG needs a break.

  • Perfect upgrade for my dx.

    Just look at that pretty colorful Nexus logo….I wanna stick my Pentile in it!
    and based on the rendering, the phone will be slightly curved….like my Pentile!
    No bloatware on the G-Nex, makes my Pentile GET bloated!

  • Mister Waldo

    Does anyone else think a curved screen is a terrible idea?!?

    • Keith Sumner

      The Nexus S had one and never proved to be problematic. What’s your concern?

      • Mister Waldo

        Main concern being how easily viewable the screen will be from diff angles and such

    • whats so terrible about its something no one else has its been done before 

    • Anonymous

      It’s only slightly curved, and looking at the screen you won’t notice it, but holding it up to your cheek while on the phone, it will fit like a glove, and no more hitting the end button by accident while on the phone…also, the curve will fit the back pocket much better when sitting….not that that’s a selling point….

  • J Dub

    I don’t care what the specs are, this is my next phone. If it is truly the next Nexus and will get updates from Google then I’m sold. Look at the Nexus One. It still gets updates from Google.

    I hope the Phandroid article is right and that it is spec’d more like the GS2 LTE HD. I want that rockin’ Exynos chipset that Samsung makes.

    • EC8CH

      God I love speculation!

      Keep it Coming!

  • Joe

    Yeah I’m all over this phone (most likely) but only when its released as a non-specific carrier version, as was the case with the N1.  I’m still in contract with T-Mo from back when I first got my N1, so I can’t grab the Verizon one either way.  Plus I don’t want some lame carrier logo printed on it =P

  • Trooper

    Unless its priced way high, yes this is my next phone.

  • Back on topic…. If the Nexus is what we all think it is, then it’ll be my phone. If it’s not, then I’ll have to make a decision (and may stick on my TBolt a while longer).

    • DanSke

      Likewise. I love the T-Bolt, but could go for the upgraded features on this beast of a phone. Heres to hoping the 1750 mAh battery is decent. *crosses fingers*

  • I love my Bionic, but the screen tech does bother me. If this Nexus device actually materializes on VZW, I might sell my Bionic. I just don’t like Samsung phones though. I’ll have to wait to decide until it is actually announced.

  • Anonymous

    Pretty well locked in on the Incredible 2 for now. Although the owner of the Wireless Zone in CT said he would give me an upgrade based on the so-so speaker quality on the Dinc2. Rooted and insured, it works well, and I need a break from all this fine tuning for a while.       

  • Br_hermon

    This has mostly all the specs I want. It’s vanilla android, which I want. It will (hopefully) receive “developer perks” I only have… well… 4 concerns actually…. How good is battery life? Is there a slot for an SD card? Will it only charge by those 3 connectivity points / or will it charge by “standard” micro usb? and Most importantly, will it be competitively priced (undercut current competition)? I can buy a Bionic for $199 at RadioShack until Oct 15th. THAT’s awfully appealing…. I’m waiting as long as I can to make a decision before I have to.

  • Why does the nexus mean so much after we had the OG DROID.  That device was just as good as any nexus the only thing it was missing was the faster updates from Verizon.  Even the XOOM is still pretty nice to have since it is also stock.  This will still be my next device but the post kind of makes it sound like Verizon hasn’t had a single device worth mentioning ever.  I have contracts that are due up Nov 7th so I will have a little lead time to be sure its what I want.  My Sprint Nexus 4G is a great device and I am sure this the same but I still have a lot of love for the tank of a phone that is the OG DROID.

    • J Dub

      This is a worthy successor to the OG IMHO. Will most definitely be an unlocked bootloader with loads of dev support just like the OG Droid.

      Then all that bootloader stuff is of no importance to you. The Bionic I’m sure is a great phone if you don’t want it for the reason of roms. (not saying it won’t have roms, I think you know what I mean)

      A nice stock device with ics and no encrypted bootloader is DREAM for the rest of us.

      • i agree.. while the bionic stays a great device. i think some of us hunger for that stock google experience we’ve grown accustomed to since the droid. 

      • Anonymous

        Nope, It’s not a big deal for me.  The main reason I ran roms on my Droid were for performance optimizations but the Bionic is extremely fast stock.  I’m rooted so I can modify anything I like regardless, with the exception of the kernel.

        I am tempted by that AMOLED screen and ICS though.

      That’s a good point actually. A lot of people see that screen size and freak out, but if the capacitive buttons are being replaced by screen real estate, the device probably isn’t going to be any bigger than, a Droid X or a Galaxy SII.

      I still use the Bionic every day.  Still like it.  But I also like the Incredible 2, the Galaxy S2, will love the Vigor and the RAZR too.  Technology is fun.  It’s not all about 1 device to rule them all. If it’s good, we talk about it here at DL.  Nothing has changed on that front. Been that way from day 1.  😛

      • Mctypething

        Seems like all you do is hype the crap out of phones coming out, and then they fall off the face of the earth after that. It’s a never ending cycle. What happened to the app of the day feature? I loved that. Your site needs to be more dynamic as it’s just become a hype machine for upcoming rumored phones.

        • Sp4rxx

          I agree – though it’s nice to see new stuff, there still needs to be coverage of the whole Droid spectrum … after all, it IS DROID life, not ONLY NEW DROID Life

          • @f258986b023c5c8bf4a80c5fd9565ab6:disqus your correct it is DROID LIFE so here’s a little reality for you naysayers about never talking about the old phones. 


            This is a post about a recent NEW APP for a VERY OLD PHONE The OG DROID posted on Septemeber 1st 2011 a little over a month ago.

            That isn’t even relevant anymore – it’s just a version of the Bionic scavenger hunt.  That contest is over.  So, I go back to my original statement:

            There needs to be more coverage of all Droids, not just the new ones….

            OR!!! make another subset of the domain droid-life.com domain and make new.droid-life.com

            just a thought….

        • What are you expecting from it? Once a phone has been released, Kellex does a quick review then an full review. After that what? Want him to do 2 months later review? By then technology has moved on, new stuff has come out or will be coming out.

          If someone wants to read Droid-Life’s review on an old phone, you can search the site and find it. He doesn’t need to keep posting about the phone over and over.

          And to counter your point when an update is released for said phone Droid-Life posts about it letting it’s user base know it’s coming or is out.

          I’m not sure you understand what technology blogs or for this example Android blogs are about. As for other pieces such as theme of the week, unless a dev or someone releases a new theme not much to report on there in that front and app of the day maybe statistically because yes you don’t know the numbers each post hits but kellex does. Maybe those posts didn’t generate enough interest to warrant their up keep?

          • Mctypething

            So, the only thing you want to read about a phone from a tech blog is its initial review and that’s it? How about what good apps are out there, which games are the best, more due diligence on the ever growing amount of launchers out there, ways to conserve battery, etc…This site should be much more dynamic than it’s become, which is simply a hype machine for upcoming phones. There used to be an app of the day feature, what happened to that? I want to know cool things to do with my phone during the 2 years of my contract, not just an initial review.

          • Anonymous

            When they did that(not too long ago even), everyone complained that they didn’t have enough new device news.

          • @0cf69e95d030cf8978798d876e1dc33a:disqus I’m not sure you understand Android then, if the site is going to review the best games for the latest android build or the best apps? Are you forgetting that these apps or games can be played on other devices running android also?

            You can say how the game runs on ICS vs Gingerbread but that doesn’t matter if the game is played on the Gnex or The Vigor.  Bionic vs TBolt, the game will play virtually the same, maybe play slightly smoother on  one vs the other.

            It’s not like we’re comparing games on the Xbox vs the PS3 here. or Android vs iPhone your trying to compare phones with similar builds or build against build here… come on and get real. 

            I think your getting tied to the app of the day concept, like I said MAYBE just maybe the analytics on App of the Day posts weren’t as high as say hype posts so with less interest in those pieces why waste time on this site writing them for a select few individuals? I’m sorry but generally a tech blog will cater to all tech but lean towards what it’s users find most interesting.

            If you are not among them, there are countless other android websites out there, hell even app specific ones.

            You’re right, I must not understand Android. Because that is a logical conclusion to draw from my comment that this site needs to cover more than just upcoming phones. Thanks for the enlightenment. I’ll go work on understanding Android now.

          • Let me know if you need any help understanding the basics, Droid-Life will be here for you, what with it’s tutorials, reviews and news on all builds of android.

          • Xfloggingkylex

            This is a news site.  I learn about 50% of the apps I use on my D2 (omg forgotten so long ago) from droid life.  I learn about all the upcoming phones and new root methods here.  This site is about droid news.  When was the last time you saw a news report for something that had already happened.  If you are looking for the specifics of your phone, check out those sub forums for sites like droidforums or XDA or rootzwiki.  You can’t expect a website to stay stuck on old phones, that’s just how this works.

          • Jonfrap

            No you’re totaly wrong. this is where we come for our “NEW” phone info. there are millions of other sites for what you are looking for. it’s not here. I check this site EVERY second for my Vigor info. I don’t want to have to scroll through the crap you want here. Droidlife is the best site around. don’t change a thing. Unless you can make it so clowns like this guy can’t post………..

            P.S. they do tell us everything new that comes out for our old phones. Every update and everything we need. I couldn’t ask fo more. so where in the hell did you come from? i have never seen a more “far off” post in my life.

            Yes, trolling is a art.

          • Benjamin Landwehr

             An art*

          • A review after a week or two of living with a new phone would be handy. Let the wow factor die down a bit and let us know how it really works. 

          • Kellex does that.

          • Kellex? What’s that?

            Come to think of it… All I want to hear about is the Nexus Galaxy…. Since it will probably be my next phone. I am excited and many more are also (probably).

            We like buying new phones… It just happens that new phones are coming out all the time. Android phones are exciting and hyping them just makes sense.

          • Mctypething

            Well, you’ve come to the right place. Get ready for 3 weeks of non-stop Galaxy Nexus hype stories, followed by 3+ weeks of Droid Razr hype stories, followed by 3 weeks of ______ hype stories.


          • EC8CH

            I’ll tune in for that!

          • regardless of anything.. i will check this side several times a day.. 

            i’m more excited about the nexus news because it will be my next device. .so yeah.. im honestly eager about every little tid-bit that comes out about it. 

          • Anonymous

            No… Once this phone comes out then I want the hype machine to stop immediately.

        • EC8CH

          seems like all you do is… u mad bro?

          • Mctypething

            Yeah, you’ve never posted that to any comment on this site. I forgot.

          • EC8CH

            Because posting something twice is the same as posting it a hundred times?

        Screw the name Hypebeast…

        I dub thee “Nexus Kellexus”

        Official Hyper of the Verizon Nexus Empire!

    • Doubtful.  With this being a Nexus phone, it will have some legs.  Also coming stock with ICS will help.

    • Rccrod

      @0cf69e95d030cf8978798d876e1dc33a:disqus what else can you write about once a phone is released?? of course they move onto the next thing. use some common sense.

      • Next article should be: “Motorola Bionic – Still on Verizon and still has an overpriced laptop dock!”

        • EC8CH

          or it could be:

          “Motorola Bionic- How to sell it on Ebay to get cash for the G-Nex”


    • Anonymous

      You mean you’d actually come here to read news about old phones?

      “2 weeks in, the Bionic is still good”

      “1 month after release, the Bionic is still good”

      “3 months later, the Bionic is….still good!”

      • T-Bolt 6 months after release, still good (if rooted)

        LTE still the fastest thing around

        The kickstand is the greatest thing ever put on a phone

        (trying to build the hype beast for my upcoming eBay auction)

      Maybe I’m missing something but what needs to be covered on the site after a device has already been released and is out there? I am sure that when the inevitable bug fix update comes out it will be covered here.

      I replied “You mad bro?” then I scrolled down the page and realized everybody else had already said that to him! Hahaha funny shit

  • Thatsjared87

    That monster screen will just take some getting used to. It’s a bit bigger than my OG Droid’s screen. Maybe it being curved will help it sit better in my pocket?

    • Anonymous

      Yeah, will take some getting used to. Bigger than the OG screen by almost a full inch.

  • Guest

    Will hold out for GT-i9250. I signed on with Verizon for the original Droid, and that was a mistake. I’m not okay with signing up for a new two-year agreement with an absurd ETF with no guarantee that the Nexus 4 won’t even be available on Verizon.

  • Anonymous

    As long as the camera doesn’t suck.  I’m sick of my gritty pictures with a purple splotch in the middle that take 2 seconds to capture.

  • Anonymous

    Depends on retail price. Knowing Verizon I will be crying when I hear the retail cost.

  • If the phone performs as well as it should (for example good battery life and LTE works well) then probably so, but I’m not going to buy one until it’s been in the wild long enough to have a better idea of how good it really is.

  • Ermmm…. is anybody in the market for a Droid Bionic?

  • Anonymous

    IF that cryptic mention of a keyboarded version is accurate AND IF that rumor about the droid loyalty program means early upgrades, then I’m all over this.

    And if the tablet dock is a reality, then I’m going to start frothing at the mouth.

    • Anonymous

      and again


  • Price will likely be a huge factor for me. I hope they don’t make this $300 on contract.

    • jonathan caruso

      you’re dreaming if you think they will price this below $299.99 and therfore below the Bionic and their other lineup of 4G devices

      • Anonymous

        Im thinking this is the opener for $350 tier, meself.  

        • Anonymous

          Oh please let that not be true. And yet I wouldn’t put it past Verizon at this point. They’ve killed so many benefits to us and now they’re just raising phone prices…

          But as others have mentioned you know some third party will have a deal on the phone when it comes out.

        • Anonymous

          I doubt Verizon is going to go that route. Maybe Google made it a little cheaper through ad revenue or something.

        • Jason

          I hope they don’t cause I’m not going over $300 for a new phone on contract!

      • Anonymous

        Google could help with the pricing though like Amazon did with the kindle fire.

      • digsoreos

        They have to price it less than the Bionic. Otherwise, they are in effect saying that VZW bloatware and Blur are NOT value-added feature/add-ons. 😉

    • derek connolly

      Even if it is, wait a few weeks and you’ll be able to find it way cheaper on Amazon or Wirefly.

      Will most likely be 299 on contract.

    There is a new Nexus device coming?  Strange that there are no stories about it anywhere…

      What! The web is full of stories, just check any Android Forum, and Samsung itself put out the Teaser, you can see the phone at the 22 second point:  http://youtu.be/oM9RO-GAKjE

        hahahahahaha Apparently the sarcasm detector is broken. lol There are 50 stories a day all claiming they know the specs and have one and who knows what.  Tuesday we will find out for sure.

            I could have added an lol to it but I figured with the myriad of Nexus stories it would be obvious.  The interwebs can be confusing. haha

        • lol as long as it’s a Nexus on Verizon i don’t care what else goes down……… 

          • Anonymous

            600MHz TI OMAP 3430.  Would you care then?  lol

            Then it would share the same processor as the last fully unlocked Google Experience device on Verizon. lol

        +1 I spit granola bar on my screen from laughing…

    Gonna see whats in store with it. Pricing and availability is key

  • Unless something crazy happens between now and Tuesday (or if they pull a bionic and wait 6 months) then ABSOLUTELY YES.

    • Dongwenal

      I agree if spyder,droid hd ,moto razr or Nexus G the one that come out first will upgrade Bionic still look good but camera is a problem.

  • YES!
