Samsung Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.0 hands on review
Galaxy Nexus Face Unlock
There’s a side-mounted button to get the Galaxy Nexus to wake up, but you’ll really want to take advantage of Ice Cream Sandwich’s new Face Unlock feature which recognises your mug and almost instantly springs into action in approval. If only this software could be ported to your boss and wife, eh?
Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) and the Galaxy Nexus
As you’re probably aware by now Android 4.0 (or Ice Cream Sandwich, to use Google’s sweet-toothed sobriquet) lets you customise your multiple home screens and stack icons into groups (not unlike folders in iOS in look or feel). There’s also People (neé Contacts) an intelligent Rolodex of your friends that latches on to every conceivable avenue of communication (Facebook, Twitter, Google Chat, Google Plus, etc). It all works smartly and gorgeously, and is prettier even than Windows Phone Mango’s similar service. Watch the Windows Phone Mango 7.5 video review
