During the Google and Samsung live event, there was a lot of emphasis placed on the design of the Galaxy Nexus. Its looks very similar to the Samsung Nexus S, but with nearly every aspect of the device upgraded in some way. But you don’t have to take our word for it.
As pictures and videos of the Galaxy Nexus start to hit the web, we’ll be posting them here for you to take a long, hard look at. Curved display, discrete notification light, metallic inner frame, textured battery cover and all.
What do you say, what’s your favorite part?
Where the new Nexus differs from its predecessors is in its teardrop-like profile, starting off fantastically thin at the top and gently, smoothly expanding to a (relatively) rotund bottom. It lends the phone a very sophisticated look and also makes it easy to handle and operate. In terms of weight, the Galaxy Nexus surprises by being quite a bit lighter than one might expect from just looking at it. This is likely down to the all-plastic external construction — which sadly didn’t impress us too much — though Samsung has installed a metallic inner frame to ensure the phone’s frame is rigid enough.Vlad Savov
The panels on all of these guys are stunning, but we're finding it mighty difficult to choose a favorite between the Galaxy Nexus and the GSII.Darren Murph
