Back when Android 4.1 – codename Jellybean – was released, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus was first in line for the update. This meant it was not only sought-after by Nexus lovers, but by Android lovers as well. Now, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus had been around for a while prior to the Jellybean update, and even then, it was a slick phone with some very nice features. With the Jellybean update, the phone became even better. It was quick and responsive, offering an incredibly intuitive user interface.
So, yes, the software was good – but what about the hardware? In terms of its display, the Nexus featured a gorgeous 720x1,280-pixel resolution on a 4.65-inch screen. While its 1.2GHz dual-core processor couldn’t match up to later quad-core powered phones, it was still pretty quick. Its camera was snappy, offering a superfast shutter speed to capture great photos, with the ability to shoot 1080p video as well. In terms of design, the Nexus’s plastic casing let the side down slightly, especially when compared to the aluminium and tempered glass iPhone 4S – the Nexus’s closest competition at the time. While looking slightly cheap, its plastic did have an upside: it made the Nexus lovely and light.
