Buy the Samsung Galaxy Nexus
|The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is similar in form to the Samsung Nexus S. Both phones have curved Super AMOLED displays, but the Galaxy Nexus uses a substantially higher resolution (800x480 vs. 1280x720) and a larger display (4.0" vs. 4.65"). The dual-core 1.2GHz processor ought to run very well with Ice Cream Sandwich which has been built to take advantage of dual-core processors. Connectivity and camera are somewhat underwhelming. The 5MP resolution on the rear-facing camera could be found in smartphones at least two years ago, and the current expected standard for high-end phones is 8MP. There are no port-based connectivity options on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus beyond the MicroSD port. Samsung and Google would probably like to think that they've made up for this lack of ports with the inclusion of NFC and Bluetooth 3.0, but in reality it will be some time before those technologies get utilized in a widespread way.|
|First phone to launch with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. LTE version also available. Curved display.|

The E90 is the first smartphone to provide an 800-wide main screen which makes it very useful for Internet browsing and documentation.
