The Samsung Galaxy Nexus for Verizon was a landmark handset because it delivered Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) operating system version 4.0 to a United States handset for the first time. The new ICS user interface has been a hit with Android smartphone shoppers, multitasking efficiency has improved, camera operations are smoother, and there have been several over the air updates which have contributed to the performance and success of the ICS OS. And as far as features are concerned, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus running on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network delivers a full range of attractive characteristics which make it very favorable when compared to other 4G smartphones.

Verizon was the exclusive home of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus until recently, when that device also appeared on the Sprint 4G network. The wireless smartphone marketplace is a very competitive field, and in an attempt to keep market share from slipping away on one of their most popular handsets, Verizon recently lowered the price of their Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE Android 4.0 phone to $49 at select Verizon authorized online retailers with a standard new two-year commitment and data plan. The Galaxy Nexus debuted on the Sprint 4G network for $149 with the same two-year commitment.

The Sprint and Verizon Galaxy Nexus handsets are identical in every respect, with one exception. Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus delivers Google Wallet out-of-the-box, while Verizon’s does not. However, a simple application download is all that is required for Verizon Galaxy Nexus handset owners to marry Google Wallet access to the Near Frequency Communications (NFC) support that the handset delivers. NFC technology also means that Android’s Beam wireless data transfer feature is supported in the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, allowing for two Android Beam devices to wirelessly pass data and applications by simply tapping them together.

Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus delivers one of the largest screens in the entire 4G smartphone marketplace, at 4.65 inches. That Super AMOLED display with a protective, scratch resistant layer of treatment has a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, delivered at 316 pixels per inch, with both of those screen resolution marks lying at the high end of the 4G smartphone marketplace as well. A PowerVR SGX540 chip focuses on graphics duties, freeing up the dual core 1.2 GHz Cortex A9 CPU to handle your other requests. 1.0 GB of RAM memory and a 4G-best 32 GB of built-in storage are also present. A 5.0 megapixel camcorder offers video capture at 1080P HD resolution, and the front facing 1.3 megapixel chat cam can handle video calls, while also allowing for portrait snapshots.  Buy the Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G starting at $49.

  1. Exactly what is the simple download we need to get Google Wallet on our Verizon phones. The Google Play will not return it in a search and the browser trick stopped working when they changed the Market to Play.
