Some pretty awesome accessories here that we hope will follow along  [Read More…]

Another Galaxy Nexus at the FCC points toward possible proper AT&T love

Galaxy Nexus FCC

We’ve said before that we fully expect U.S. carriers other than Verizon to make available subsidized versions of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and this looks like a pretty good step in that direction. The FCC has approved the GT-i9250T, which is a Galaxy Nexus sporting radio frequencies for 3G on 850 MHz and 1900 MHz, which AT&T (among others outside the states) uses. This is different than the GSM version many  [Read More…]

With the OTA slowly rolling out today for the Galaxy Nexus, it’s always nice to have a way to manually apply it.  Things have changed a bit from how it used to be done, but Alex, Phil, and myself have been fooling around and have a method figured out to give yourself the OTA with no waiting.  Fair warning — this requires an OEM unlocked phone, fastboot drivers, and a few command  [Read More…]

Just a quick heads up that white Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket — that’s essentially AT&T’s LTE version of the Galaxy S II — will be available starting Dec. 4. Specs are exactly the same as the black Skyrocket, save for the white shell, and pricing remains the same: $ 249 on contract.

White Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket on sale December 4

Remember when I asked why aren’t there more fully-white Android phones released in the U.S.? AT&T and Samsung must have read it because they are releasing an all white version of the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket.

Samsung just sent us word that the snow-white Galaxy S II Skyrocket will go on sale this Sunday, December 4. The price will be the same as  [Read More…]

Best Buy seems to think the Galaxy Nexus is in stock Dec. 11

Galaxy Nexus at Best Buy

Take this with a grain of salt, seeing as how Best Buy’s had a hard time remembering the the Galaxy Nexus’ name, but this inventory screen sent to Engadget shows that the big-box retailer is expecting to have the Verizon Galaxy Nexus in stock on Dec. 11. Note that the street date is blank, though — and we’ve seen these Best Buy inventory screens be wrong before.

Press images of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus with Verizon branding have been found in the source of the coming soon page on Verizon’s website.  Things look very similar to the current GSM Galaxy Nexus, (check out our review) and chances are without them side by side one would never be able to tell if it weren’t for the Verizon 4G logo  [Read More…]

If you purchased a Samsung Galaxy Nexus (or just heard about it), you probably know about the volume bug. Basically, UK users have been experiencing problems with the volume, which seems to sporadically turn up and down. (Read more details here).

This is no small thing. The Galaxy Nexus is the most awaited phone of the year. Such issues can be disappointing, especially for people in the US. People are already  [Read More…]

Samsung Galaxy Nexus battery life — some updated impressions

Android Central

We’ve got around a fortnight of Galaxy Nexus use under our belts, so we thought we’d offer up some updated thoughts on the device’s battery performance. Before we begin, remember that we’re talking about the international GSM/HSPA+ version here, as opposed to Verizon’s upcoming LTE model.

When we first reviewed the Galaxy Nexus we reported that its 1750 mAh battery lasted us around 14 hours on a single charge with pretty heavy  [Read More…]
