Craig Froehle from The Gadgeteer gives his first impressions of the Galaxy Nexus.

The newest member of Google’s Nexus family of smartphones — the Galaxy Nexus by Samsung — has finally arrived on Verizon with 4G LTE. While Julie will be posting a full, in-depth review here soon, these are my impressions after spending a day with this latest incarnation of Android.


The Verizon CDMA/LTE version of the Galaxy Nexus (hereafter “VGN”) is a terrific phone, but it’s an evolutionary improvement over other Android phones.

Yes, it has an amazing, curved 4.65″ 720p (720×1280) Super AMOLED display. That’s the same physical size as Sprint’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S II, but it has higher resolution.
