Engadget Review

The Galaxy Nexus remains one of the best Android phones on the market, and this version, in particular, includes Google Wallet. Still, the battery life is relatively short, and early adopters will have to wait for Sprint's LTE network to go live.

  • Simple yet beautiful designGoogle Wallet onboardSolid performer
Cons
  • Shorter battery life than other Galaxy NexusesMediocre camera performanceEarly adopters will have to wait for LTE service
