Gallery: Verizon’s 4G LTE Galaxy Nexus Unboxes For Your Viewing Pleasure

Rather than dive back into all of the bad news about the Galaxy Nexus that has come out today, we thought we would instead just plop this new set of pictures down in front of you. I know, I know, it’s not the actual device that you should have had in your hands in 2 days, but it’s at least another look at it. We get a crystal clear pic of the box both inside and out (see the raised Galaxy Nexus lettering on the inside?), a reminder that it’s not a unicorn, and a profile shot of its pretty little body.

Poor little G-Nex, he just wants to be out in the public, away from dirty old stock rooms. Set him free Verizon! 

Cheers ___!

    Surprised no one brought this up as a theory of why Verizon wont release it. Apple is opening their NYC Grand Central store tomorrow, 12/9 so Apple made Verizon not release it on the same day to take away from their sales.

    I went to the local Verizon store this morning to ask if they had received the Nexus yet and was told that they did receive some but were told not to sell any yet…..damn.  I asked if she could show me one and low and behold she said, “I can do that”.  The box she brought out looked like an ice cream sandwich and contained two phones sitting side by side (maybe display models?).  She allowed me to handle the phone but wouldn’t let me take any pictures.  I was drooling the whole time, the phone feels outstanding in the hand and the screen is drop dead gorgeous in every way.  When questioned about their stock she said they had received at least twenty.  The phone also looks thinner in person.  When questioned about a release date she put her hands in the air and walked away.

    Something to think about. when was the last huge LTE outage? April 27, right? well, why is that date significant? Wasn’t the Droid Charge supposed to be released on 04/28? When was it finally released? Mid May, right? Did the Charge cause the issue? Can’t say.

    Did the G-Nex cause the latest issue? Why is it that VZW has an LTE “outage” when they’re about to release a device?

    • Interstellarmind

      yes, i remember this very similar problem when the charge released.both samsung devices? both LTE? it can’t be a coincidence…

      either way, though, verizon sucks and Google and Samsung need to put the screws on them. VZW is slowly killing this phone.

    Wow, the Verizon reps are useless on this. I called three different stores in the Cincinnati area and the first one near me flip-flopped and went from saying “Well be getting it on Friday” to “We don’t know”, and every other store I tried have the reps also trained to say “We don’t know”. One even said “Later on in the month”. I never dealt with the Bionic so this is the worst product launch I ever seen a company do… I mean, everyone else is getting the Nexus way before the US gets it (It just came out in Canada, on schedule too…). This thing is really becoming the “Unicorn Nexus”…

    Unicorn. I’ll wait patiently for ICS on the zippy RAZR.

    • Yeah, that’s only six more months away.

    • Enjoy ICS with Moto/NinjaBlur on top. 

      I’ll gladly wait for ICS highly optimized on the Nexus with immediate updates from Google and no ugly android “enhancements” added by Motorola, thanks.

  • Anonymous

    Just read a C-Net review about the Verizon G-Nex which claimed that its a basic phone if not for ICS and the hardware (i.e. plastics) make the phone seem cheap compared to others. Please someone slap the doubt out of me…

      played with it last night (demo) at a vzw store. i have had the razor now for almost 2 weeks. i had hope to exchange the razor for the gnex…but. after playing with the gnex i quickly became aware that the it’s not quite what everyone is making it out to be. i can honestly say there will be some very disappointed people. there is no way any phone will meet the hype or expectations of some here. the resolution at times was fuzzy. switching screens was laggy at times and the browser at some sites was slower than what i had expected. the biggest red flag for me was the gps lock. after what must have been over a minute the best lock i could get was about something like 1500m…i still intend to get the gnex but if the launch is extended past my return window of the razor i won’t be overly disappointed. the razor is just that good.

      • How did you find a demo at a Verizon Store?
        Just curious since they aren’t supposed to be on display and technically no one is supposed to even know they’re in the stock rooms.

        • OG Droid

          Cause he’s full of shit. Thats how.

        • Anonymous

          it was just a demo with a security tether on the back cover. i asked if they had stock in the back and they said no. and they had no idea on a release date only that it was due out thurs or fri but had been postponed. people will go on all day about this and that and many haven’t even touch the phones in question. the best thing for me is to just go down to the store and handle the phones myself. you’ll know which one you like best and you might even be surprised. my wife really likes her rezound…especially since it only cost us a penny 😉

        • I tried one at my local verizon corporate store as well. It was not on display, the service rep was doing an exchange order for one of my other lines and when he was done he said, is there anything else I can help you with? I said not unless you have a nexus. He pulled one out from the table and said I could check it out but that it was not activated on their service yet.

        Finally another smart poster not depending on blog data.  i fully agree after 3 days with the UMTS version.  Way over hyped.   You all will see but the A-sheep will be too stupid to admit it.

    • Anonymous

      I don’t really get their claim that Samsung should be doing something different design wise though – I think the RAZR they point to as an example of good design looks and feels stupid personally.  The Nexus has largely better hardware than the RAZR too – OMAP 4460 instead of 4430, higher screen resolution etc.  Camera quality’s probably going to be the only thing where it’s not up to par or exceeding the other top phones.

      The pluses really are:

      – ICS
      – It will be the only new phone for at least a year that gets updates straight from Google right as they’re released.
      – Minimal bloatware, unlocked bootloader.
      – Only phone with a 720p AMOLED screen.

  • a friend of mine works at verizon and he texted me earlier saying he had one i could take a look at.

    went in and played with it for 45 minutes..
    it’s unbelievably snappy and fast. the settings and menus have changed alot more than i thought and it took me a good 5 minutes to find the keyboard options..

      No way will quad core be released on Verizon till at least the summer. And it will not be a nexus. Maybe the rumored HTC if apple doesn’t choke hold them out of the us.

      All I’m saying is be prepared to wait much longer than January or February for the Tegra 3 on Verizon. But if you have the balls to wait, kudos to you my friend

  • Jamaicawind

    Ok so for the most part it seems as if 4G is coming back to everyone now and also the gnexus should be in almost all Verizon stores tomorrow. So if this thing STAYS delayed id be pissed…i mean for the love of god what can possibly keep this thing delayed now? i rearranged my entire schedule Friday just to pick up this phone -_-

        god I know.  I had to take an adderall from my prescription from like 4 years ago (they definitely have gone beyond the expiration date).  I found my old bottle like right before the beginning of the semester and hadn’t taken any until last night because I haven’t done any work for like two weeks.  All I do is sit on this damn website hoping for those magic words that involve “official”.  Then we get one, and it was the most ephemeral official that has ever lived.  I stayed up all night last night and wrote 4 fricking papers, did 9 chapter tests, and then 3 bullshit assignments.  Thank god after I get it all turned in today I can sleeeeeeeeeeeeep until next tuesday when I have my last final.  Hopefully the nexus will come in sometime while I’m comatose

    So seriously I’ve talked to 5 Verizon stores today… One of them told me Friday is the release date, another said end of the week, another just received them in stores today but didn’t say when they can sell them and the other 2 gave me the same BS line that they didn’t know when its going to be released.  I don’t care what they say I’m going up to VZ store on Friday and demanding a G-Nex.

    GUYS-

    got to play with this svelte powerhouse today at the VZW store.  By luck was the only one there and asked to see it after he mentioned four had arrived.  He inexplicably obliged.

    WORTH THE WAIT!!!

        It was a small store, which is how I got my hands on it to begin with. It’s barely wider and a good 1/3″ taller than my DX. Very slim in person, despite looking thicker in pics. For those familiar with DX camera, it’s quality is better but still shows graininess at highest zoom. However it actually captures the moment, which the DX camera was always a tick too slow to accomplish.

    The only unboxing I’m concerned about at this point is my own.  It’s ironic that I am the “phone geek” of all my friends and I am sitting with my 2 year old OG.  I’ve been telling everyone I’ll be getting a new phone but at this point it looks like I’m waiting for a unicorn.

    seriously, this POS Burner phone is burning up! It literally almost broke yesterday and I can’t take this anymore! I switched my whole family to verizon and cancelled my Sprint account (etf free) all the way back on January 23rd and have been on this POS burner phone that holds 50 text messages, the hinge is broken, and the screen is partially blacked out from a crack!

    HAVE MERCY!

    Way to rub it in guys haha…. Just bought the Bionic on launch day and have no upgrades on our account. If I have to keep the Bionic for 17 more months :-(, I’m not willing to pay full price for any phone….. Mainly because I don’t have that kind of money to throw away.

    • Joe Fischer

      sell your bionic on ebay and get 500 out of it…

        More like 250. Gonna be less once the GN drops.

      might wanna put the bionic up on craigslist… you might be surprised at how much you can get. I got a guy who’s willing to pay $300 for my thunderbolt… once I can confirm that the GNex is $650 off contract, I’m more than happy to pay $50 over subsidized price to have this phone over my Thunderbrick, and still have that upgrade available in 15 months

      • u have anyone else willing to buy a thunderbolt for 300?

      Put your phone on Craigslist. You might be surprised. When I got my original DroidX, someone actually traded me that phone for a Droid1. They guy said the Droid X was too big in his hands. My point…. You have no idea what you might get if you don’t try. I would trade the Bionic for an iphone. Someone will want a faster 4G phone that has a new(er) iPhone. Then trade the iPhone for a RAZR or Rezound. There is always someone wanting to go back to Apple without paying $600on there as well. Or, wait and trade the iphone for a Nexus. Set a Craigslist notification so you can jump on deals quick.

          there is a landscape dock and car dock that utilize them.  power is passed through them to charge the battery as well as audio.  Both docks have usb and mini plug ports so that the cables can plug into the dock and not the phone making it easier to place and remove the phone into the docks. The N1 had the same pins and docks.

        because verizon has proven to be an unreliable company. because verizon has botched one of the biggest releases of the year. because verizon is trying to monopolize the nfc payment market on its network. because verizon has forced its applications on a device that is supposed to be purely free of carrier bloatware. 

        because throughout this entire process, we have seen how truly profit-driven verizon is. their lack of care for their customers and the public’s demand of just a DATE is completely unacceptable in a time-period when the public is focusing on what corporations do. 

        if you can honestly still use verizon without questioning whether you should switch to a different network, then good for you. the other networks aren’t any better, but by dropping verizon plans it certainly sends a message to the board of directors about public opinion.

          You do realize that Verizon has hundreds of people dropping contracts and new people signing up everyday for various reasons. The fact that you dropped them because you are pissed how they have handled the release of this phone means absolutely nothing to them, they could care less. The people who follow these blogs and actually even know there is a new phone coming out is such a small percentage Verizon doesn’t even worry about it. You just dropped the biggest, fastest, most reliable network in the country over nothing. Give yourself some time to cool off ……. Cause you’ll be back.

          • Anonymous

            Do you have any idea how modern social networking works? The only press on them recently is how bad they’ve handled this. The only people who are tweeting them are people angry over the Gnex. EVEN THE FCC IS TAKING A LOOK AT THIS BULLSHIT. 

            For at least three weeks now, Verizon has received nothing but bad press. Every large paper from the Washington Post to the Wall Street Journal has editorials on how Verizon is pushing to increase the CR4s in almost every communication market. 

            I guarantee you have never worked in marketing, business, or policy. It only takes one mishap to stain the image of a corporation or a person. This may not be big enough to topple the company over, or really affect their net profits. The message of customers dropping service over this debacle is strong enough though.

        It does seem hard at times to figure out what VZ’s incentive to even carry this phone is – it doesn’t have their money making bloatware on it, they can’t control what people do with it (ie root and tether it etc).  Still not sure why they wanted this instead of the GSII just from their side business-wise.  They’re not promoting this at all, I wouldn’t know it existed if it wasn’t for the user communities and blogs.

          it is longer, thicker and it is plastic. There is my argument. The only reason the razor is a little wider is because they needed to put everything in it. The nexus just has ICS and a little better display than the razor period.

          • Anonymous

            The only part of the RAZR that isn’t plastic is the Kevlar backing, it’s not much longer to make that much of a difference, and it’s thin enough. I personally find the RAZR too thin and wide but if it works for you then great.

            Moto has the best technology. Are you forgetting about water repellant? Moto actions etc.If you find it thin you can always put a nice seidio cover. I always put a cover to all my devices anyways. If you put a cover on the nexus, it will look like a tank

I want updates for the nexus, just like a i did for the bionic which was the biggest bust pos. It was a 600 dollar paper weight with the radio issues so your beloved moto devices aren’t that great.

            I have a Seidio rugged  case currently on my OG and I like the fact that it’s a tank. I’m employed in a line of work where a phone can become easily broken if not protected, so that isn’t much of a concern to me. Water repellent is a gimmick too me, sure it’s nice and all but all it really is is a lining of wax that’ll eventually rub off. Moto Actions I can say is at least a step forward.

            You say I could put a case on a RAZR if I find it too thin, but there is also an issue with that. I don’t like the width and cases add bulk to the entire phone not just the thickness. So the already too wide phone will become wider. I have nothing against the RAZR, if it wasn’t for those few minor issues I have I’d consider it.

            In any case my upgrade isn’t until March, so who knows what amazing phones will be out by then.

            You have a good point. Maybe you will like droidx3 or maybe htc step up their game with better devices. The only thing i do not like about Samsung devices is the weak radios, call and speaker quality. I can live with the build quality in their devices because i always put a cover anyways. I feel radios and call quality are the most important features to a Smartphone. What features do you like the most?

      WELL if you look at the google/nexus web page, the phone is on 4:00 in every picture. That means it will be delayed by 4 days from 12/09 and that will put it at 12/13 as other sites are suggesting…

        Must keep eye on the clock its the key to everything

    • ToiletSniffer

      Yeah, what are the odds that was a coincidence? 

    • JeremyT727

      HAHA dude.. Good eye on how you pointed that out considering the “release date”

    • Too_many_delays

      Wasn’t this phone supposed to be announced on Oct. 11 in San diego?  Ever since that date was postponed and the announcing venue was moved to Hong Kong- the Nexus has seen an enormous amount of delays. 
      Does anyone know if the Oct. 11 event was gong to feature the Verizon LTE version?  As the Hong Kong event only had the international version on hand.

    So Kellex are you hearing next week like some of the others?

    • I think we are just assuming next week unless Verizon surprises us Friday morning.

      • EC8CH

        is that your “official” assumption 😛

      • Christephor

        lol what would be a chance of verizon actually doing something like that to there customers

      • OG Droid

        Thanks for the reply. Yeah Im going to call around and see if I can find one somewhere Friday I have to pay full retail so guess it doesnt really matter were I buy….

  • I’m still going to the VZW stores on friday hoping that one of them makes a “mistake”

    • John

      computer won’t let them sell one but who’s stoppin ya
      O_o

      • Shoot, you’re right. Then I guess it’s back to hoping VZW is trolling us for leaking and the 9th is still on

      • lol nice thing is the stores dont really have to activate the phone. Only the sim. If you have a sim thats all you need, The store i work at we have done it multiple times just activate the sim and thats all thats required.
