Sprint Galaxy Nexus Unboxing & First Impressions

IMAG0225[ad#ad-1]The Samsung Galaxy Nexus for Sprint has arrived and we give you our unboxing of the device. Frankly, the device looks exactly like its Verizon counterpart; not much has changed except a few minor details. These changes include the XL sized box that it comes inside with Sprint detailing and such. But for such a large box, the contents in there are the same: Galaxy Nexus, Travel charger, USB cables and headphones.  In terms of hardware, the difference here is a change of color on the edge trimming from dark grey on the Verizon Galaxy Nexus to black on the Sprint version.

The Sprint Galaxy Nexus also features a 4.65-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display that sports on screen buttons for your home, back, and multitask buttons. That means there are no physical buttons on the device other than your power and volume rockers.  It is powered by a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor with 1GB RAM for smooth operations, which you will notice once you start playing around with the OS.  It sports a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash in the rear, and a 1.3 megapixel camera for video chatting in front.  It’s NFC capable and houses a Sprint 4G LTE chip, making it the company’s first 4G LTE device, though 4G LTE roll out hasn’t begun on the network. So enjoy our unboxing and we will give you a full review of the device once we have spent some time with it.
