Verizon Wireless Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE Review

Wow!

Okay lets roll it back a bit and talk about what Google does. The Nexus line is meant to be the truest of an Android experience you can get, so every major release of their operating system (OS) they put out a “vanilla” android development phone. This year Verizon Wireless was the lucky carrier to get this new amazing phone.

I had this phone for just over a week and used it as my daily driver. I hooked up my Google Voice number to make and get all my calls as well as send and recieve all my text messages. The new Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) is the fastest OS I have ever used. Also its by far the best looking mobile OS to date.

Functionality wise, there were few issues with the actual hardware as well as the OS. 4G LTE reception seemed scarce on this devices compared to other Verizon 4G LTE phones I have reviewed. I traveled all over Minneapolis and Saint Paul and was only able to get 4G LTE in a few areas.

I want this phone, it does everything that I want or need in a mobile phone. I feel that having a developer phone would be a benifit to me as I am needing to test tons of Android apps.
