Video: Three UK posts new Galaxy Nexus hands-on teaser

Galaxy Nexus Three UK

If you’re anything like me, you’re still dying to see anything and everything Galaxy Nexus that hits the web. One of the first carriers announced to carry the Galaxy Nexus, Three UK, has posted a quick hands-on teaser for the device that gives us a glimpse into just how stunning the display really is.

The narrator of the video, Three’s Brendan Arndt, made this sneak peek just to talk about the display quality of the Galaxy Nexus. The video doesn’t reveal much we didn’t already know, but there’s some good close up footage of how an HD movie trailer looks on the 4.65-inch 1280×720 HD display. The same trailer would no doubt look much better if you were holding the Nexus in hand, but you can still get a good idea of the clarity the device will offer. PenTile layout and all.

I have to admit, I was a little nervous about the Nexus’ PenTile sub-pixel arrangement when it was first detailed, but this video helped ease those worries away. Be on the lookout for another full featured hands-on video from Three coming up soon.

    Nice. Thanks for posting the video! It just makes me more excited about this device and ICS.

    • WarDrake

      Why? they really didn’t show anything… we already knew the nexus has an amazing screen.

    Wow, the Galaxy Nexus looks even sexier in that video. Did the follow-up come out yet?

  • BigCiX

    My only gripe about this phone is that it should of had been smaller. Not the screen itself but the black space from the top and bottom of the screen itself.

    • WarDrake

      you do know they needed space to cram all the components and a decent battery, right?

    • Dustin Earley

      They must have needed the space for the notification LED on the bottom, and senor/camera/speaker on the top.

    • http://goncalossilva.com goncalossilva

      I think its size is appropriate, but I’ve never held one. Anyway, that’s probably an engineering restriction, not a design choice. There’s stuff in there :p

      On AndroidCentral (I think), someone that apparently had a chance to use it in person said that part of the purpose of the bezel at the bottom is to bring up the soft-keys when you’re in full-screen mode. It is touch sensitive. Still…the bezel seems a little big, but it’s less of an annoyance if this turns out to be true.

      I think the extra space is so when you have it held in portrait you have someplace to put your thumbs/hands without covering the screen. Just my take on it.

    frankly the nexus one was equiped with a pentile amoled and it was amazing !

  • Alan

    Anyone else notice the lock icon at 0:25? This guy is rooted!

    • Elmagio

      The bootloader is unlocked, indeed, but that doesnt mean the guy is rooted :P May be the Galaxy Nexus will ship unlocked :P (A guy can dream, right? :P )

      • nory826

        That is a great dream my friend, and that’s exactly the same dream as mine. I hope its unlocked, because I may have to buy mine from the UK to use on TMO US.

        • Scott from Oz

          of course the bootloader can be unlocked- its a Nexus phone:

          fastboot oem unlock

    This video is amazing! [in a british accent]

  • Anon

    I’m probably just as excited about the new nexus as anyone else out there, but this guy is in the business of selling phones. I’d like to believe every good rumor that I hear about the device but don’t trust a salesman.

  • unfeasible

    He looked nervous. The poor dude. Sweet beard though.

    We should have a Nexus Party. Is that even possible? Can someone create that app.. or am I thinking of goog+ ?

  • Lamar

    Love it Love it Love it. Can’t wait to get it.

    i was up till 4 am watching every video on youtube about the galaxy nexus lol

  • http://youtube.com/user/jawckamoe Marcus

    Wow. That screen looks great. Even with the PenTile Display.

  • nory826

    Does anyone know if I buy the galaxy nexus from THREE UK, would it be compatible with T-Mobile US? Especially on TMOs hspa+ network? Thank you

  • http://None CaribGrackle

    Cool, I’ll be waiting for more videos. I do think they could have done something more for the phone, something extra for that push, but considering it ICS flag-ship phone, that just makes it even cooler. Great phone, amazing OS, we can’t barely ask for anything else.

  • mrben

    Yay for choosing Serenity as the hd video trailer to show :)

  • RevSpaminator

    Someone hurry up and patent binary logic before things get ridiculous.

  • Lamar

    People always complain size, the bezel, the curve Damn if you don’t like the phone don’t get it. It’s really simple. STOP COMPLAINING.
