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 ___!

    Ugh, it’s just…right there. Why Verizon, why?

    I’m just going to wait for ICS on my Droid Bionic, or maybe a ICS ROM. The ROM will probably be available before the Galaxy Nexus :-} When I say ROM I mean one where everything works right. I need WIFI, GPS, Audio, 4G Data and no glitches :-)

      The Bionic is going ROCK even more with ICS I can’t wait either.

    • Anonymous

      No doubt. The Bionic is already sweet and has great potential. It will blow away GNex in the near future…just my opinion. Some people may see it differently.

      • Steve Martin

        The Bionic has already been forgotten. lol. Think about it. How many times in the past few months has there been a post about the Bionic on here?

      • U Mad Bro? No But Your Mom Is

        I think anyone with a brain will see it differently.

      Probably wont get a completely solid ROM due to the locked bootloader unfortunately. Yep…I just brought up the bootloader, big whoop wanna fight about it?

    • Anonymous

       You can’t get an ICS ROM unless Moto leaks the one they are working on. That is the downside of a locked bootloader.

  • http://iamandroid.co/profile/rocktoonz Rocktoonz

    I’m starting to think that Verizon seriously underestimated the buzz this phone would create.  Could the delay be because they now realize this could be the next big thing, and needed time for an appropriately hype-driven ad campaign for it?

      No, it’s Verizon…

        I use to hate blur but it doesn’t slow the phone down at all anymore. Its actually pretty much blur-less now. You should try a razr or bionic out and see. The Bionic is getting ICS sooner than think.

           I went from the OG Droid to the Droid X and I currently have the Bionic and aside from the occasional network issue were I lose not only 4G but 3G as well and the fact that about once every few weeks I get the black screen of death and can’t do anything until I pull the battery it isn’t that bad.

          The main reason I want the Nexus is the unlocked bootloader. I loved my OG Droid more than anything because I could constantly have new ROMs on it and I want that feeling back.

        Anybody that says that Moto blur is lagging is an idiot and has no argument. Moto software dethroned sense 3.5 and touch wiz. It may dethrone ICS with all the bugs that it has so far :)

      I agree, I’ve already given up on the GN.  Verizon really screwed this up.  Maybe that’s what they wanted to do so less people will buy a vanilla phone.  Its a conspiracy!  ^-^

      • Anonymous

        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.

        • msheldon

          Their incentive is simple, to prevent competing carriers from having a phone for the holidays that can compete with the Razr and Rezound.

        The Galaxy Nexus is only slightly longer and not as wide as the RAZR. You don’t really have an argument in the size area.

        • Derp

          That’s good to hear, I held the RAZR today and it was pretty damn wide

        • Anonymous

          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.

          • Anonymous

            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

            Honestly guy. Why do you come on here and bash the phone every wants? You sound like the biggest tool. Go out, make friends, meet some girls. You’ll see that trolling will seem stupid once you actually have a life. Now before you ask, why am I on here then? 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. Get a life, seriously. I don’t want to drop kick you anymore, im actually pulling for you to get a life. Good luck

            Not everyone wants the nexus. I already have a life turd. You seem that you don’t have one if you are here crying like a little girl. The nexus is a failure and i said it. What are you going to do about that? Will you cry some more? Get a life and stop making me famous, i do not want that. I just type what is on my mind about any bad device. I also said bad things about the bionic. Therefore, i do not defend all Moto products just the good ones nice try though.

            If you don’t troll, why are you on a Nexus post. Talking crap about how it sucks? You have comments; but recently you come on these GNex posts and just talk about how it sucks and Moto this and that.

            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?

      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.

        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.

      My OG Droid has had a completely shattered screen for the past two months waiting to be put to rest, but is only getting teased at retirement. Thanks Verizon.
