Samsung Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.0 hands on review
Galaxy Nexus screen resolution
Even at arm’s length the Galaxy Nexus’s Retina Display-baiting 320dpi resolution screen cuts a sharp picture. And sharp text. But it’s better than the screen on Apple’s iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S (read the Apple iPhone 4S review). Although (marginally) less hi-res (the iPhones cram 326 pixels into every inch), Apple’s stubborn refusal to move away from a 3.5in screen means the Nexus’s display trumps the iPhone’s.
Galaxy Nexus size
Samsung has resisted the urge to supersize its new made-for-Google handset (we’re looking at you, HTC Titan), so the Galaxy Nexus measures up at a handsome – but not overbearing – 4.65in diagonal. Fans of the Nexus S will be pleased to hear that the Galaxy Nexus has carried over the CRT TV power-off animation when the screen powers down. And it’s still lovely.
