I went from a slide out keyboard smartphone to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Everyone that has this phone said how wonderful it was. I'm not as impressed. Yes, the screen is bigger so if you are playing games, it is better and it is 4G. It is faster but that is not a selling point to me. It's still an android rather than an I-Phone but I'm thinking I would rather have gone with the I-Phone and the 3G.

Battery Life
Had to get the extended battery since the one it comes with has known battery life issues. Verizon is selling the battery at half-price for this phone.

Display/Screen Quality
It is a large screen and it is clear to see.

Call Quality
The call quality is good but doesn't that have to do with the wireless service?

Ease of Use
It's a little confusing at first but the online manual makes it understandable.

Durability
So far, it holds up well. Did get a cover since I have been known to drop the phone pretty often.

Design
Larger than most phones.

I am review this cell phone because I am hopeful that it will give others information to make their choice on their next purchase. I bought two of these phones this last December. One for me and one for my daughter. I had done my research and compared the different phones that were available. I really wanted one with a key board, but everything I could find just didn't fit my needs. Apparently they don't think anyone will like those any longer. Personally I do. I would rather type my messages on that then on a screen. But, unfortunately, it seems that most of the smart phones are going to all applications on a touch screen.

Well here is my experience with this phone so far - a little over two months. Within a week I had to return it because it wasn't working. They replaced it with a new one.

Features/Applications. All of them seem to work fine. Navigation could be a bit better.

Texting. As I said before, I wanted a keyboard. I really don't like having to use the screen to do it, but I'm getting used to it. I do find that it takes me a lot longer to write though because I keep hitting the wrong letters and the swipe feature doesn't always say what I want it too. Its ok, but I don't know if I will ever like it.

I don't know about the 4G. Its not available in my area. Also the towers are under maintenance for 3 months in my area, so as for service, it is sporatic. When I am in a service area, I do get good connection then.

Battery life. Well my other phones I could go all day without having to charge, but this one only lasts for about a good 6 hours. I don't have anything running in the background that would cause this to happen and I have talked to Samsung about that, but apparently that is about the best it will do. That is disappointing. If you are going to be going anywhere for any length of time, you will need your charger. I ended up buying a car charger and I also bought a travel charger. This helps, but it is a hassle.

Another thing is that the controls on the side of the phone are super sensitive. You just need to barely touch them and your phone goes on or when you are using it the other control for increasing size or zoom will just start working if barely touched. I really don't like that. Also, I have noticed that the on control is so sensitive that even putting it in my purse can turn the phone on. If you don't keep an eye on it, it could be on a lot and drain your battery.

It is a nice size and is very light which I do like.

Overall I think the phone is ok. It pretty much does what its supposed to but could be better.

    As I said in the title of this evaluation, samsung galaxy s3 is one of the most prestigious phones for me, it is a wonderful phone and amazing, for its features I mentioned earlier, the most important is that the quality of taking pictures and recording videos is great although it does not compare with the quality of modern phones, It also has a very long battery life

    Phone giant in every sense of the word. The wonderful advantages of camera and clear and good for pictures and personal applications as well for use as a note, but in a single defect and is the battery. Terrible battery and charging too long for that many people did not like the phone except for the battery. And the storage area of a few somewhat but there sd card port.
