A good friend has managed to grab a few Galaxy Nexus’s of Selfridge. Since they are only available through contracts online there are currently two ways to purchase one. Either goto the UK yourself and buy an unlocked Galaxy Nexus or manage to buy an overpriced one off eBay. I managed to get a few hours to check out the device in general.
The touch screen responsiveness was buttery smooth but the phone felt plastic cheap. The new Ice Cream Sandwich(Android 4.0) is nothing short of amazing but the phone itself isn’t the best I’ve dealt with. It’s worth noting one of the Galaxy Nexus’s bought from Selfridge had a multifunctional speaker. So you might want to wait and buy it from Kuwait.
In comparison to its current rivals hTC Sensation and Samsung Galaxy SII when it comes to size, it’s slightly bigger than both. Galaxy Nexus has the same thickness as the iPhone 4S but a bit thicker than the Galaxy SII. Best part was its screen size, it had the biggest screen of them all at 4.65 inches(other two were 4.3 inches respectively).
