The Samsung Galaxy nexus will the latest addition to the Android phones, and sure to pack a punch with the latest ice cream sandwich OS coming out from Google.

There are quite a few changes that have been made in this edition and I will try to list them and briefly explain them as much as I can.

There are no longer any buttons positioned beneath the screen, instead there are three context sensitive buttons located on the screen – ‘back’, ‘home’ and ‘recent apps’. The biggest change is removal of the ‘settings’ button from this group. This shortcut
has been hidden away in the notifications bar so it is now a swipe and a click away. It’s not a big deal, but for long term users of Android Gingerbread it could take a little getting used to.

Another change has been made to the main apps menu. Instead of icons now being shown on one page, they are split over pages and a quick swipe left and right allows users to navigate between batches. Setting up folders is now a doddle as well, as it is possible
to do so simply by dragging apps on top of each other. The ability to resize the widgets is another addition, and means that users will have more control over how content is displayed on home screen.

We also had a poke at the Data Usage app, which is no doubt going to come in handy and help heavy data users keep on top of their usage, providing that you can still find an operator that give you a decent allowance.

The Galaxy Nexus comes with a 4.65in screen that boasts impressive 1280×720 resolution.

The specs on the Galaxy Nexus make it a power packed cell phone, and users looking to get away from the iPhone experience will definitaly find it as a breath of fresh air.
