Samsung Galaxy Nexus
Simplicity & beauty
Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich – brings an entirely new look and feel to Android. Simple layouts with subtle animations and delightful flourishes make everything feel alive.
Gone are lists of text with icons, replaced by big pictures and bold text, just like a magazine. Instead of boring button presses, find your way around with fun, consistent gestures.
The home screen, web browser, email and everything in between have been rethought and redesigned to make Android simple, beautiful and beyond smart.
Dozens of improvements to auto-correction and touch recognition make the keyboard feel natural. A new inline spell checker lets you quickly edit misspelt words. It's never been easier to type long emails or messages on your phone.
Type with your voice
Galaxy Nexus listens. Simply touch the microphone on the keyboard and start talking to write emails, SMS or any other text – more than 20 languages supported. Text appears in real time, so there’s no waiting for server processing.
Gmail to go
Gmail makes email fast, fun and approachable. Swipe between conversations to catch up quickly, and search for emails even without a data connection. Get instant access to rich Gmail features no matter where you are.
Connect & share
Real-life sharing is nuanced and rich. Galaxy Nexus makes sharing with mobile devices just as easy as it is in person.
Zero shutter lag camera
Galaxy Nexus has a full-featured camera with automatic focus, top notch low-light performance and zero shutter lag. Open it right from your lock screen and fire off a photo instantly. Snapping several photos is quicker than the blink of an eye.
Single-Motion Panoramic Mode
Take beautiful panorama pictures with Galaxy Nexus. Just point and touch the shutter and pan your phone from one side to another. Android immediately stitches together an expansive panorama photo, ready to share.
HD video camera
Shoot video in full 1080p and snap still shots while you're at it. Continuous focus, real-time zoom and time-lapse mode give you the power to shoot stunning videos.
When your footage is ready, create your own movie with Movie Studio and upload it to YouTube.
Never lose a contact or photo again. Gmail, calendar, photos, music, movies, and books are always backed up to the cloud. Google works round the clock to protect your personal data and to ensure that you get it when you need it, wherever you need it.
If you ever lose your phone or switch phones, just sign in with your Google account to retrieve all your stuff.
Share contacts, web pages, YouTube videos, directions and apps — just by touching two NFC-enabled Android phones back to back. Tap to beam what’s on your phone to your friend.
Apps & games
Play games, keep up with friends and stay connected – all from the palm of your hand. With more than 300,000 apps to choose from, you can find the right app when you need it, wherever you are.
You can also browse Google Play on your computer to send apps wirelessly to your Galaxy Nexus.
