Sell Samsung Galaxy Nexus


The Galaxy Nexus is a hybrid device of two manufacturers – Google and Samsung Electronics. Merging Google Nexus with Samsung Galaxy back in 2011 produced the Galaxy Nexus, which was Google's flagship smartphone, featuring the latest Android 4.0 at that time.


The co-developed Galaxy Nexus was the third in Google's Nexus line of smartphones succeeding the previous Nexus S, which was one of Google's high-end smartphones. At this time, in 2011, Samsung had just begun its Galaxy S series, its flagship smartphone and the Galaxy Nexus was unlike the smartphones in the S series. 


The Galaxy Nexus had a combination of features that were quite appealing. First, it was the first device to use the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Operating System.


One of the most interesting features of the Galaxy Nexus was its Super AMOLED display; it wasn't quite common at that time. The display was quite good and impressive, having a solid HD resolution, good viewing angles and a matching aspect ratio. 


On the flip side, the device didn't feature an SD card slot which was disappointing, its camera wasn't quite as superior as was expected, but the Galaxy Nexus found its audience. People who loved the idea of a new operating system update and those who trust Samsung's or Google's reputation to deliver good devices loved the Galaxy Nexus.


Well, it's been over a decade since the launch of the Galaxy Nexus. The device is out of fashion in most parts of the world, like the US. If you still have a Galaxy Nexus, the chances are high that it is collecting dust in your home. Whatever the case may be, you should consider making the most of the device by selling or swapping for a next-gen gadget on Gizmogo.


Samsung Galaxy Nexus Specifications

Design Info: The Galaxy Nexus came in a package that contained a USB cable and its charger alongside a set of earbuds from Samsung. Users will probably have appreciated it more if the manufacturers had included a case for the device.


It is not large, only about 4.7 inches and is easily pocketable and held. It comes in a dark grey coat, made of a plastic called Hyperskin. This plastic material is optimized to improve grip, making it hard to slip off your hands while in use accidentally. On the surface, there are no hardware buttons, a feature that was still quite uncommon, yet a neat slab without buttons was desirable. 


Above the screen, the occult sensors for ambient light and proximity, the front camera and the earpiece are seen somewhere there while the volume controller and power button share opposing flanks of the smartphone. 


The device has its USB port underneath and its headphone jack; there's nothing on the top save for the tiny latch to remove the back cover. Opening the back cover exposes a 1750mAh battery and a single slot for a SIM card.


The device's audio quality is quite good, not just loud alone. The sounds from the external amplifiers were hardly distorted, and you'll have a hard time picking up any deterioration in sound quality on maximum volume.


Capacity Info: Internal storage is a non-expandable 16 GB and 1GB RAM.


Size and Weight Info:  The Galaxy Nexus was slim, at least it was considered slim, being only about 8.9mm thick. Its precise length and width were 135.5 x 67.9 mm, and it weighed 135 grams. 


Display info: The Super AMOLED feature on the Galaxy Nexus made it one of the best displays of its caliber. It had a 720 x 1280 resolution for its 4.65 inches display screen with a pixel density of 316. 


By 2011 standards, the Galaxy Nexus screen is impressive. But that is not the case today. There are over 80 Samsung devices that beat the Galaxy Nexus in screen ranking. If you still have a Galaxy Nexus lying around, consider cashing it in or trading it for newer Google Nexus or a Samsung Galaxy device. 


Camera and video recording info: The main camera on the Galaxy Nexus is a rear-facing 5MP shooter that captures a maximum resolution of 2592 x 1944. The new Android OS provided an interface that made it fun to use, but as far as the quality of images went, it didn't do badly as images were quite detailed and low on picture noise. This camera records videos 1080p at 24fps.


The front-facing camera is a 1.3MP camera that records in 720p at 30 frames per second.


Water-resistance info: No waterproof feature on this device.


Performance info: The Galaxy Nexus CPU is a TI OMAP 4460, a dual Cortex-A9 core. This alone speaks of the fact that it was at the very least a decent processor.


As for Software, the Galaxy Nexus boasted of Android 4.0 ICS, especially because it was the first smartphone to feature the O.S. This new O.S brought a more friendly and useful interface that was game-changing.

Comparing its performance to Samsung's high-end phones, it fell behind the Galaxy S II, but the Galaxy Nexus performed better than the 1.4 GHz of the Galaxy Note.


Connectivity info: An LTE version of the Galaxy Nexus wasn't available everywhere, but the non-LTE versions had the quad-band GSM/EDGE/GPRS connectivity available and 3G with HSPA+. You'll also get WI-Fi b/g/n, Wi-Fi direct, NFC, Bluetooth 3.0 and a Wi-Fi hotspot.


Battery info: The Galaxy Nexus had a battery of 1750mAh. Despite the relatively low processing power consumption, this battery could only provide up to 30 hours of combined use which was considered low. Use it for web browsing or any power-consuming task, and it barely stands 4 hours from a full charge. Its video playback of 6 hours was nowhere near satisfactory. The Galaxy Nexus didn't have the best battery.
