Samsung Galaxy Nexus
While every Android OS is born equal, by the time it’s found a host phone and emerged blinking into the sunlight, most manufacturers have bolted on all manner of modifications. If you prefer your OS unsullied, Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus is straight from Google – so you get version updates before the others. The phone itself is no slouch, with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4.65in 720p screen and – ICS’ coolest skill – Face Unlock, which uses the 1.3MP forward-facing camera to only give access to people with your face. Like your twin brother.
