The Samsung Galaxy Nexus LTE Gets Cracked Open And Torn Down

When a new device is launched it must go through the ritual of getting torn down. Whether it happens a day after the launch or a few weeks, almost every device is cracked open and examined. It is no surprise that when it comes to the Galaxy Nexus it receives the treatment only a day after its launch.

While Verizon’s Nexus may look similar to the one our friends have across the pond, it is quite different on the inside – thanks to the LTE radio. Unfortunately likes its cousin, Verizon’s variant will be quite difficult to repair if the display is cracked or damaged.

    Since the camera sensor is so easy to remove is there a chance that people could upgrade it?

    With that said, I do have a G-Nex (sitting under the Christmas tree) and I have used it to take pictures and I thought they were pretty good, but I’m always up for tinkering.

    My Galaxy Nexus has this problem where it will freeze for a second then make a loud popping noise then instantly power off, then after about 3 seconds later reboot. It has happened twice for me. I can’t tell if there is something wrong with the hardware because i get what i believe is good battery life and signal strength and everything seems to work fine. Also it happened when i was in the settings (right after turning off airplane mode) and when i was loading flash on a webpage. What are everyone’s thoughts as to what i should do?

    I’m loving my Nexus so far!  On my Wireless N I’m pulling 33 meg down, and 11 Meg up…Crazy speed, right on Par with what I test on my main home pc.  There are only a couple minor complaints, and they can be tweaked with an update…  Volume is a little lower than expected “the lowest two settings are useless as its wayyyy quiet, the Desktop loading check box defaults out of desktop and to mobile after you close out of the internet “should be set it and forget it in the internet settings”, be able to drag to messages out of lock screen like the Droid Charge, and there needs to be the bookmark button on the address bar, instead of double tapping to get to it.  Other than those minor things, this damn thing kicks ass!  I’m gettting 5 hours out of it with heavy LTE use between web browsing, facebook, etc.

    Anyone know of a 4G toggle app that works? My GNex battery is lasting way shorter than my Droid X’s battery and most of the battery is being used by the Android OS. Dropped 40% idling overnight. My DX would drop maybe 10%.

    It’s absolutely insane to me that people are bickering and fighting and fanboying about specific ANDROID phones now.. “you’re a dumb gnex owner” “have fun with your stupidZR” are you kidding me, these kids must be new to these phones… the real android fans don’t care what phone you get, we are all fans of the SOFTWARE

    the other thing I think is absolutely stupid are people that are whining and crying about how many gnex posts there are.. THIS IS AN ANDROID BLOG, it initially started and was called DROID because it was specifically only for the two phones, I have never considered this a “droid only” website, if anything I considered it a verizon only website really… do you idiots think he is not posting information about other phones in PLACE of the gnex? the gnex was just released, of course there is going to be tons of info, kellex posts everything that comes out… I remember when the thunderbolt came out, and for a month before and after all news was TB, but I guess the members were more mature back then.. it’s like we’ve been invaded by 14 year olds and idiots

      Thank you so much, you hit the nail on the head. I’ve been reading and following Droid Life since I got my Droid X and it really was a more mature time in terms of the readers and comments on articles. I remember when I used to read the comments as much as the articles and I really wish I could like your post more than once. 

      More people like you are needed to comment and contribute to this amazing website kellex has going. If it wasn’t for Droid life I might not have ever rooted my X and there’s a chance I would ave returned it for the iPhone wen that landed on Verizon.

      “back then”? the TB was recently. Dude, you make a good point, it is always flooded with whatever the most recent phone is… but just pointing out that if you consider yourself a long time “droid-life” reader because you have been reading since the “tbolt days” then you are sadly mistaken. You need to go back 2 years to a time when the only android phones worth talking about were droids. OG, DX, and the infamous eris….

    Poor little G-Nex, it’s a shame to see a perfectly good phone being torn down. I got mine last night and I stayed up alomst all night just playing around with this great piece of tech.

    The only problem I’m having with my G-Nex is the notification light. It doesn’t seem to work even when I have a notification pending. I thought that I may have recieved a defective phone and so I downloaded LED tester to check. When I open the app and apply a color, the led flashes on and off like it’s supposed to. So it seems that it’s able to work properly, but I can’t seem to get it to flash when I have a notification pending. You know, the whole point of having a notification light in the first place! 

    Is anyone else having this problem? If so, has anyone found a way to fix it?   

    • http://twitter.com/Izaman93 Intesar Zaman

      download light flow, I use that and have no issues. There’s so many colors to choose from and the led at the bottom is awesome!

      • Anonymous

        No no no you can’t do that. The “G-Nex” is supposed to be perfect out of the box and all you need to do is unlock the bootloader and everything will work perfectly and it will be faster than a Intel Core i7 at everything and you can use NFC for anything and everything you wish.

        At least that’s what I’ve learned from here.

        Hey, got the paid version last night, it really is worth the 2 shillings. Pretty much every color to choose from, and can be attached to almost every action to create a form of notification. Paid version gives you more colors if i remember correctly, as well as cycle rate can be higher than free version…

  • Matt Dabrowski

    This question does not pertain directly to this article but thought I’d post it on the most recent GNex article:

    Can anyone confirm that if you have a vzw unlimited plan and you buy a gnex from a 3rd party retailer, you keep your unlimited plan?? I’m being told by multiple sources that the only way to keep your unlimited plan is to buy a new smartphone directly from verizon. OR buy it retail and then go to a vzw store and plead to them to roll you back to unlimited after the 3rd party retailer forces you to pick a new tiered plan.

    Any thoughts?

    • Charlie Miller

      I recently upgraded to a HTC Rezound when it was on sale through Costco and switched from 3G to 4G and I still have my unlimited data plan. When I bought the phone the website didn’t have the option to keep unlimited so I called Costco and they told me just to choose the option that is the same price as the $30 unlimited plan. 

    • Gerg04

      I upgraded at a 3rd party “Verizin Wireless Zone” and not only got the corporate.pricing of $249 (which took some haggeling) but I kept the unlimited data, which I was grandfathered in to.

      I used a authorized retailer and I still have my unlimited data plan.  Just like Gerg04 I took a printed sceenshot of my vzw.com pricing offer into the store and they matched the $250.

    • Nakouro28

      I had a guy holding it for me at Radioshack. Then he told me I couldn’t upgrade through him.I had to go to the Verizon store and do an early upgrade ($20). I have the unlimited plan, from my original DINC, so I was grandfathered in. I was supposed to have an upgrade 2/8/12 but you can do it early if you pay the $20 dollar fee, ONLY through Verizon stores.

      • http://www.facebook.com/zachary.exton Zachary Exton

        This is correct. Annual upgrades are unique, but after the ones currently in the system are exhausted, they will be gone for good. Temporary problem.

    • RW-1

      total BS.

      bought mine thu a retailer, kept same plan, unlimited 4G upgrade.

    • Mannyizm

      I just did exactly that. Got the phone through work and used my personal line instead. They didn’t let me use the SIM that came with it so i had to head to the store but they got it sorted out and still have my unlimited plan. 

  • http://twitter.com/Scotty_Braun Scotty Braun

    Its a nice phone, with a great screen.  I like it, dont get me wrong.. but theres alot of things that aren’t so great.. like the camera, the wifi connection, and data connection, signal, etc..  My droid charge would have full bars 3g inside my house, and get 1 to 2 mbps dl.. My nexus has 0 to 2 bars, and gets like .50mbps dl.  I notice this at my work, driving, everywhere so far.  Also the camera takes really crappy pics. My charge takes way better..  Also the battery last half the time as my Charge did.  I think the over hyped,  I’m actually pretty disappointed

    • Anonymous

      Go return it then, no one is stopping you. You can go back to the store and return it no questions asked.

      • Anonymous

        Wrong.  I took mine back to swap it out and the manager would NOT swap it for me. She told me all she would do is swap the sim card.  I did this went home and had the same issue right away. Then she finally swapped it out and this one has the same issue. 

        I called Samsung tech support and it is a known issue.

        I want to be blind to the issue also but it is hard when your phone cant keep a signal for long at all.

        I do think a software update would resolve it because when I did a factory data reset it was fine for a few hours before returning to poor signal again.  

        • Anonymous

          Wtf are you talking about…wrong? He was saying he was pretty disappointed and that his Charge was better. What I was implying was that if he was so disappointed he can return his phone and get something else or go back to his Charge. I have four bars of 4G at my house so whatever issues you or anyone else are having are not effecting me. And yes he can return it if he is not satisfied.

          • Anonymous

            I think what I was trying to say (which I did poorly) was that the Verizon store I went to is making it very hard for me to have a good experience. The manager would NOT swap out my defective phone even though tech support told me to do just that. I had to make another special trip out of my way in order for her to do it.

            But yes those that are not happy with the phone will return it. Those in a real hot 4g location isn’t affected as badly, but as you move around I think you will start to see what we are talking about.

            But I am very happy you are having good success with your phone.  I want the same.

          • OG Droid Owner

            That’s too bad the manager of that store failed to take care of her customer. I’ve had really great luck with Verizon with numerous of my clients (I’m an IT consultant) taking advantage of the two week grace period. I’ve noticed that a lot of Samsung devices struggle to connect to 3G antennae’s in some suburban neighborhoods (They’ve always had this issue, dating back to the Samsung A900 “Blade” I owned for 7 years). Motorola phones have superior 3G connection in my opinion. I’ve never had issues connecting on my OG Droid. I plan on getting a RAZR soon to replace mine. The Samsung do have prettier displays to date though. :-)

    • emdubs

      I have zero wifi issues. In fact, on my N home network I pull almost 20M and push over 10. It stays connected and I can stream fantastically. The camera takes pics faster than anything Ive ever seen, maybe a little subpar to other offerings, like the 4s, but not that noticeable.

      • Heather McDade

        I want your ISP!!!  We pay for 10 down lucky if we get 6!  and forget ups its usually a measly 2!

    • Anonymous

      Unlock the bootloader, that solves all issues.

      Once you unlock the bootloader it gets 5 bars no matter where you are and the camera takes 21MP pics.

      It’s true. Fanboys told me so.

    • NoahRHPS

      You must have a defective device, the one I tried out at the store had 27mbps down and the camera was amazing.

      • Anonymous

        Yes it has good speeds when there is signal.  The problem is it is very difficult to maintain a 4g signal with this phone…  3g signal is also very poor.  However if you switch it to CDMA only it works better.

        Samsung tech support told me it was a known issue and they are working on it.

        I am on my second phone.

    • RW-1

      I’m loving it, but the lower light settings for the screen throw me off, then I figured out why, I’m so used to black with white lettering for email, SMS, etc.

      Stock apps were always white backround, wonder why google didn’t figure that into it and give a choice. But there will be those who will “skin” the stock apps for those who want it, happened onthe OG, will happen with the Nexus.

          You are correct Scotty Braun. If you check around there are countless people all with the same issue.  I am on my second phone with the same issue.  If they don’t get it resolved quickly there are going to be many many of them returned for better phones.

          I don’t say any of this to rag on the phone cause I suffered for 2 months like the rest of you wanting it desperately. Sadly I wanted them to release it no matter what, and now I learn that sometimes It’s best to wait.

          I do think it can be resolved with a software update if they can figure it out.  When I did a factory data reset yesterday it was solid for a few hours before returning to poor.  So it has the ability but there is just something wrong.

          I just hope they fix it before we all return the phone for good at the end of the return period. 

          I am sad because I really want this phone.

            Yea, its pretty disappointing. Especially when the Nexus will have 1 bar next to my Droid Charge that has full bars. Speedtest score like .44 mbps on Nexus, droid charge 1.77 at the same time. (im only in 3G area)  But they say a fix is coming hopefully!

            the radios are dialed down in an effort to save battery. Bad choice, but nothing that can’t get fixed in a custom rom. If you have any idea what we did with the og droids hardware, you would know why we are so excited about this. overall, this entire hardware device is way underpowered, the 1.5G dual processor which can likely clock close to 2 is undercut down to 1.2 and at a low voltage at that. Same with the radios. Regardless, this will be the most dev’d handset since the og droid. You can hate if you want, but it is truly amazing and work has already begun to take this handset far out of the reach of anything that will come out anytime soon.

            how does it win for not being hd and the razr is barely smaller then the nexus, having fun with all that bezel? go on phone-size.com

            Well, the razr has the most important features in it, which are build quality, call quality great sound and the best radios all over the world. The razr also has the best accessories, moto cast, smart actions, water repellent, thinner, DDR2 ram, i can switch my memory, best music player, hdmi mirror, webdock, lapdock. what else do you want?

        You are a loser faggitt that likes to slurp cum!

        The reality, Troll, is that you are like Fox News – you think you are doing a service here but …

        You don’t have one, and any report you actually give is not reliable.

        It’s either jealousy or sexual frustration, or both …. find a nice boyfriend to hook up this weekend and you won’t have to worry about all the Nexus owners.

          Fox News #1 in the USA, more viewers that all the rest combined , you are in the minority with your left wing opinion

          • Colin Zack

            that’s because its the only conservative news outlet. if there was one republican candidate, and 5 democratic ones, who do you think would have the majority vote?

          If you are replying to my post that means i hit a nerve of yours idiot lol. You all know that all that i type on here are facts. Many Nexus owners are struggling with RADIOS. I have said that samsung sucks in that department. You need to stop suffering and stop worrying about someone’s opinion lol.

      • Matthew Rosidivito

        Thanks for that. Now all I need is for a test pilot to tell me that my car is slow.

        Where is your quad core phone again?  Oh that’s right, it is months away from being released.

      My non-rooted device also rebooted. Was in the middle of speaking a search phrase in to the Google search widget and it went black.
      Not happy.

      Unlock the bootloader. That fixes all issues and will bring world peace.

      At least that’s what the fanboys tell me.

    They could’ve just given the device to me lol

  • r8rs

    Is anyone else not seeing the lock symbol when the phone boots up?

    • Bmay4048

      That is because your bootloader is not unlocked.

      • r8rs

        In videos I’ve seen though when the bootloader is locked there’s been a lock symbol and I haven’t seen that yet.

        • Nick

          that was only on test / preproduction phones. On the retail ones you buy, you only see the little open lock when its unlocked.

          • Anonymous

            I second this. No icon until I unlocked the bootloader, now I see it every time.

    Be wary of the ZDNet link, they have the processor incorrectly labeled as an Exynos 4210.

      And they mentioned an 8MP camera, just two errors I assume will be fixed soon

      damnit I just saw that and am searching through this thread to find more information.. part of me actually disregarded the fact that it was an error and that the LTE version actually had the xynos lol

      I already did today out of my jacket pocket onto concrete (while pulling a snowblower cord) with no protector or case. (I had it out of the case for a bit… darnit)  It hit a corner and landed on its screen.

      All is well except a little scratch on one edge of the plastic. 

      It was a stupid error and I am pissed at myself.
