Verizon Galaxy Nexus LTE Hands-on and Unboxing

When it comes down to Android running on a smartphone, there’s a collection of devices out there that bring

you a “Pure Google” experience, developed between the manufacturer and Google specifically to bring you

the best experience you’re going to get with each main version of their operating system – the Galaxy Nexus

is next in line in this family line, and here in the Verizon version we get our first official USA glimpse of

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The first version of this device was released a few weeks ago

internationally, this version just dropping today at Verizon with 4G LTE capabilities and a couple tiny

modifications to the operating system in the form of apps placed there by Verizon. In our first look here, we’ll

explore how the device feels to handle, some initial benchmarks, and some photo and video examples so you

can see if you’ll truly want to be running down to your local Verizon store to snatch one up.

Of course I’m assuming you’re not already down at your local Verizon store and that you’ve not been there

since 1AM waiting for the clerk to open the door. I’m sure many of you definitely DID do such a thing as this is

one of the most widely anticipated releases in the history of Android. That said, real fanatics may well have

picked up the international edition weeks ago, this just another version for you to replace that with. So what

are we dealing with then here in the USA Verizon release of the Galaxy Nexus? An ever so slightly modified

edition of the device. The weight is just a bit heavier, the facade just a bit thicker, and you’ll have to take an

extra 5 minutes out of your day to knock out those two Verizon apps if you want a more “pure” Google

experience, just the way the Google gods intended it.
