Samsung Galaxy Nexus is a good phone launched back in the year 2011, equipped with a 4.7 inches multi-touch capacitive screen, a fast Dual-Core CPU ticking at 1200 MHz, and two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 1.3 megapixels front camera.

This cellphone is much lighter than what you expect from a cellphone like this. This cellphone is offerred in 2 colors, white and gray. This device is only 5.33 inches long and 2.67 inches wide, but it is still able to fit a a 4.7 inches screen. This cellphone is very thin and comfortable, with a thickness of just 0.35 inches.

Samsung decided to build this device with a TI OMAP4460 system chip, backed up by a fast Dual-Core CPU clocking at 1.2 GHz and 1 GB of RAM memory. Graphic rendering generally uses lots of CPU processing time, so this phone uses a 200 megahertz PowerVR SGX540 graphic processing unit to take some work out of the processor. This cellphone counts with an excellent 32 GB internal memory and even though it doesn't include an external memory card slot, it it is more than enough to install tons of applications, games, songs, pictures and videos without worrying about how much memory is left.

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus has two cameras, a 5 MP back camera and a 1.3 mega-pixels front camera. Its back camera has an aperture of f/2.8 so it has serious difficulties taking sharp photographs in poorly lit environments. It also shoots videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 fps. In addition, this cellphone's camera also has a couple of interesting characteristics like flash, auto-focus and geo tagging.

Samsung designed this phone with a beautiful 4.7 inches screen, and a 1280 x 720 (HD) resolution, which makes it impossible to even see the pixels that compose the screen. Its screen uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

This cellphone features WiFi capability (which can be shared with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), HSPA+ 4G connectivity, that is not as fast as LTE-A or LTE 4G networks or fast 3G data connection, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This phone uses a SIM card to use GSM services.

This cellphone has a 1750 mAh medium capacity Li-Ion removable battery providing this phone with a not very long battery life. This device has an aproximate talk time of 17.7 hours and a stand by time of 290 hs according to Samsung.

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (enables communication with other bluetooth phones, computers and accessories), GPS Localization and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone is being sold for only 100 dollars, a really low price for this type of cellphone. If you will use it mostly for social networks, you will definitely love this phone.
