Here it comes
Sprint's Samsung Galaxy Nexus is virtually identical to the original version we saw launch with Verizon in December, except that there are no barriers to Google Wallet. It has a 4-inch HD Super AMOLED touch screen and Google's Ice Cream Sandwich Android operating system.
Camera and back
It has a 5-megapixel camera with flash, and the capability of recording video in 1080p HD video. It'll play back video in 720p HD. On the front is a 1.3-megapixel camera. There's also a nice, textured back cover that's soft to the touch.
What's up, dock?
The shiny ports on the right side hook into desk docks. Just next to it is a power control/lock button.
The Galaxy Nexus is thin (0.35 inch) and pretty light (4.76 inches), although its battery makes it heavier than other models we've seen. It has a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor.
The camera lens and flash are located on the phone's rear side. The Sprint model has the same "hyperskin" material on the back cover.
On the phone's bottom end are the Micro-USB port and 3.5mm headset jack.
The Galaxy Nexus' main menu has the standard Android design with icons arranged into a grid.
A scoop of ice cream
The support for Ice Cream Sandwich remains one of the Galaxy Nexus' top attractions.
Working with widgets
The widgets area is accessible through the main menu. There, you can create widgets of your favorite features and drag them to one of the five home screen pages.
