The Galaxy Nexus on Verizon is the first Android 4.0 device to hit the market. So how does it look and feel? The Hardware design and styling is very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the Nexus S with its contoured screen. Which features a 4.65-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display that sports un screen buttons for your home back and multitask buttons. Yes no physical button on the device other than your power and volume rockers. It is power 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. Its sports a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash in the rear and a 1.3 megapixel camera for video chatting in front. NFC capable and houses a Verizon wireless 4G LTE chip.
