Samsung Galaxy Nexus Challenge: Day 5Aaron Baker - Director, Content and Partnerships
I'm five days in to the 14 day challenge with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Verizon, and I'm still loving the design of the phone. The display size (4.65-inches) is perfect for me, and the 720p resolution is a great feature. That said, I've had some major issues with this phone that aren't at all typical for Samsung. The wireless radio randomly cuts out for 20-30 seconds from time to time (even in strong Verizon areas), calls drop, and data constantly flips between 3G and 4G. Also, the 1,850 mAh battery is terrible, to say the least. If I run 4G LTE all day, I usually charge it 2-3 times before I go to bed.
It has a lot of potential, but the connectivity issues concern me. Will I carry it past 14 days? At this point, I'm not sure.
