Video: 4G LTE Galaxy Nexus Shows Off Its Camera, Wallpapers and Factory Reset Animation

YouTube Preview Image

We are getting close, y’all. Shipments of the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon have reportedly been dispatched to stores, retail packaging possibly revealed, and a release date of December 9 is looking hotter by the minute. We know that targeted dates and launches have been rumored for almost 2 months now, so it may not be official, but it certainly feels like it’s about to be.

And to help fill your need for all things Nexus, we have one last video from a source of ours that shows the device in action. You get a look at that ultra-fast shutter speed in the camera, G-Nex wallpapers (download), and the factory reset Android animation. Seems like a perfect way to end this series of clips. More here, here and here.

    The exhibit is  called "Picasso to Koons: Artist as
    Jeweler." You probably will 
    recognize the names of
    barbour
    jacket
    many of the more than one hundred artists  represented at the barbour
    jackets
    show. Names like
    Georges Braque, Max Ernst,  Alexander
    Calder and Salvador Dali, Robert Rauschenberg and Louise Nevelson and barbour
    uk.

      One hundred thirty of the rings, necklaces,
    barbour
    ladies
    and 
    brooches are from the collection of art expert Diane Venet. She helped
    to set  up the exhibit.

      Ms. Venet 
    met French sculptor Bernar Venet about twenty-six years ago. A short
    time  later, he gave her a piece of quilted
    jackets
    silver 
    designed as a ring. The ring celebrated the fact that they would soon be  married. Ms. Venet said it was the first
    piece of barbour
    quilted jackets
    an 
    artist’s jewelry she had ever had.

      As time 
    passed, Bernar Venet exchanged pieces with mens barbour
    jacket
    artist friends
    who sometimes created jewelry.  Ms.
    Venet’s personal collection grew and grew, and she decided to exhibit it  with works of barbour
    mens
    the other artists.

      Holly 
    Hotchner is the director of the Museum   of Arts and Design. She  says the ladies barbour
    jackets
    museum 
    considers jewelry as one of the most important forms of art today. She
    notes  that a piece of jewelry
    kid’s barbour
    jacket
    is not  just a small version of a sculpture.

    I heard news that Verizon took away its Google Wallet feature. Bad move since this phone has NFC chips inside its system.

    I’m really really hoping for a $199 16GB model/$299 32GB model. Just so that we have the options, because as a college student, I cannot afford to pay $299. But as an Android addict I must buy one this Friday.

      The razr takes better pictures than the nexus. If you want the best camera, rezound, iphone and GS2 is the way to go.

        yeah but looking at them on that awful screen won’t help.

        You guys must realize we are not interested in this phone because of the camera… right?  I’m pretty sure they will adjust the software in the future but that is here nor there.

        For someone that only is interested in the camera this is probably not the phone for you anyway. 

        The reason this is the phone to have on Verizon right now is probably over WayneBradyKnowsAll’s head for now, but over time he may figure it out. As far as Angel, she is just trying to rattle cages.

          I never do that on here. If i see something bad about a device i say it. I have said the good and the bad about my bionic. I cant say nothing bad about my razr though :) Moto is getting better and better. IF the nexus is the super phone like the razr and gs2, why does it has a shitty camera limited storage and so thick?

    For all of you cell phone camera fanatics. I found an interesting comaprison between the Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy SII, Iphone 4s and Rezound. You can clearly see the differences with each. 

    I’m not an avid cell phone camera taker, however this whole 5mp bull@#$! is really frustration when Samsung tries to compare themselves with the Iphone 4s. 

    Check out the link below, its features 4 shots of an identical object to spot the similarities and differences. What I saw blew me away…and yes, “I’m Mad, Bro?”http://www.flickr.com/photos/gizmodo/sets/72157628251747893

    • WayneBradyKnowsAll

      Wow. Galaxy Nexus indeed has a very horrible camera from looking at these photos on flickr.

        could not agree more, these geeks do not want to fact the fact that the nexus is inferior than the rezound, razr and gs2.

          Seriously Angel it could be missing a camera completely and still be superior than those other phones.  

          It depends on what you are interested in. If a camera were the only thing then maybe this phone would not be it. However there will be plenty of improvements to the camera either by later updates or the developer community.

          As soon as this phone is released you will see what all the fuss is over. The talk will be about this phone almost entirely for some time. There will be custom roms coming out of every orifice and the fun will be non stop!

          Those that that are happy with the other phones will still be happy but they will do it with very little attention.

          At least the Rezound has the chance to get S-Off and then it will be fun also. But you better like the Razr just the way it is.

          The Galaxy SII is a great phone but you notice it is not on Verizon… right?

          • Anonymous

            You guys feel that custom roms, custom kernels will make your device better. Like i always said, moto has the best features radios, call quality and good battery life as well. We have to blame LTE for the bad battery life in our devices. The only thing this device has going for it is ICS and it does have a big battery.

        5MP does suck. Try the Razr. 8 MP, but the better specs don’t seem to matter on this site anymore.

        • http://androidtidbits.com Guillermo Martinez

          Well for some, camera performance doesn’t really matter. Some would just be fine with 2-5 megapixel camera on the phone. I think what would really matter is the overall performance of the phone.

      All i have to say owwwwwww to the camera and video of the rezound :) The nexus has the worst camera.

        The Rezound is a pretty solid phone from what I am seeing, including the camera. It takes second to the Nexus overall but will be even better when it gets ICS.

        When S-Off is achieved it will then be even better.

        • Anonymous

          If the rezound was thinner, it could have been better. I feel it is too thick without a cover, i can just imagine it with a cover.

      Wow, that’s disappointing. The GS2 and iPhone’s camera are WAAY better! Rezound is better too, but still not quite up to par with the others. Looking at their example video, the rezound’s camera had a severe blue cast and poor quality audio.

    • Anonymous

      Wow, that’s really bad…  It’s not the MP though, it’s the sensor + lens.  Nexus doesn’t have backside illuminated like the others.

      • Ulnek75

        can that be fixed by a software update or is it a hardware thing? 

    • Jamdev12

      Thanks for posting this. So there are a few take aways which is probably just my observation of things:

      Seems like on the first few pictures the Galaxy Nexus colors seem a little washed out. Where the Galaxy SII and iPhone4s cameras tend to have color correction which produces very deep colors. From that standpoint I would probably state that the exposure on the Galaxy Nexus seems a bit off.

      Since the Rezound and the Nexus are the phones I was debating to get I guess I will test them out in the Verizon Store and see for myself.

    • Jam120992

      seems like they didnt focus before taking a pic with the nexus.

      Is it possible they didn’t have the white balance set correctly for the nexus?

      • Most W4nted 1

        Could have been the case, but from all the talk about a washed out screen the camera being inferiour… Im beginning to believe it. I still plan on getting this phone for all the multitasking features and I will have to tweak the camera settings to make them decent.

      • Dpry3580

        Ya, that must be it. ha ha ha. I agree with normal people who buy a phone because it works great AS IS!!!! Razr has an amazing camera, battery is decent for 4g, etc. I LOVE it, and still COULD take it back for the N-Junk, but wouldn’t consider it. People I know working at Verizon in ATL ALL swear by the Razr. The reps who didn’t wait for it, are jealous of the ones who did. NONE are getting the N-Junk. And they know the phones quite well. Since I bought mine at Costco, they weren’t trying to sell me. They’re just more informed then rooting roming, board people. This LapDock for the Razr is WELL worth the 200 as well. It’s great.

      It’s settled for me: I’m getting the Rezound. The size doesn’t bother me as much, (though I haven’t held a Nexus yet) and I trust the community will get an ICS port in a timely manner.
