Samsung Galaxy Nexus

DROID Incredible 4G and Galaxy Nexus 16GB leak on Verizon for April

Have you been holding off on a Galaxy Nexus purchase because you can't handle the responsibility of 32GB of storage? Reaching the end of your two-year contract on the original HTC DROID Incredible? Then we've got good news for you: according to leaked documents found by Droid-Life, a new version of the Incredible going by either the "Incredible 3", "Incredible 4G" or (sigh) "Incredible 3 4G" will be released on April 26th. A 16GB Samsung Galaxy Nexus  will be out on April the 5th.

Seidio’s 3800mAh Verizon Galaxy Nexus battery now includes NFC

Let's call a spade a spade: for all its charms, the Galaxy Nexus' battery is pretty awful, especially on Verizon's LTE-enabled version. Samsung sells a 2100mAh extended battery and various 3rd parties have offered alternative, but by far the most extreme is Seidio's 3800mAh battery with an extended battery bay door. The massive juice pack more than doubles the battery power of the stock Verizon phone, but previously it had an important omission: the NFC chip embedded into Samsung's batteries. Rejoice, fans of long run life and Android Beam: you no longer have to make the choice between the two.

Samsung to produce flexible AMOLED displays in 2012

We had known that Samsung would be producing flexible AMOLED displays in the future, but had no idea on a definite timeframe. Samsung Mobile Display has just confirmed that they will start mass production of flexible screens this year. More specifically, the first set of screens should start production in the second to third quarter, where the second production line will commence second quarter of 2013.

AOKP ROM’s coolest new feature: Fast Torch

As a hardcore custom ROM user, I tend to update my current "daily driver" about once every couple of weeks or so. Since CyanogenMod was taking its sweet time in getting here (nightlies just started arriving yesterday) I gave a shot to a very popular up-and-coming ROM for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, Android Open Kang Project. AOKP has been one of the fastest and most stable of the new ICe Cream Sandwich ROMs, and it's gaining quite a following. When I saw one of the features snuck into the latest build (24), I just had to do a quick demonstration.

Official CyanogenMod 9 nightly ROMs ready for Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S and XOOM

At long last, the first officially blessed software for CyanogenMod 9 is available! The CyanogenMod team has been working hard since November to get Ice Cream Sandwich builds ready, and nightly ROMs for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S and Motorola XOOM are ready for download now. Heat to the CyanogenMod ROM repository to download them now. For the uninitiated, "toro" is the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, "maguro" is the international HSPA+ model, "stringray" is Verizon's Motorola XOOM, "wingray" is the WiFi-only XOOM, "crespo" is the Nexus S GSM version and "crespo4G" is the CDMA Nexus S 4G.

Features you will instantly miss from a Galaxy Nexus once trying out the iPhone 4S

As many would agree, it's best to have an unbiased opinion to help the public see the truth in your word. And taking that to heart, I went out and purchased an iPhone 4S to get a better feel for its differences and similarities to Android. Sure, we've all messed around with an iPhone at a retail store - and after taking the Samsung Galaxy Nexus for a spin it's instantly hard to reason with its pricetag. But the iPhone does so well, and people love it. This is why I needed to test it out for myself.

Android Community Evening Wrap-Up: February 15, 2012

Earlier on today, we had found out CyanogenMod 9 may make use of Onskreen's Cornerstone multitasking engine. It was just recently announced, and proved to be quite an amazing concept. Actually, we had wondered why the concept wasn't already natively part of Android. Next, word got out that Verizon may release a white Galaxy Nexus with reduced price and storage. Reduced price is key here, and if a white model will be available at a reduced price, it's almost certain another cheaper black variant could see stores too.

ICS mod gives Galaxy Nexus true full screen, disables virtual nav buttons

Android's virtual navigation buttons, introduced in Honeycomb and expanded in Ice Cream Sandwich, have been something of a polarizing subject. While plenty of users appreciate the flexibility and aesthetic options they provide, others miss the physical feedback of real buttons, or would rather use the full size of the massive displays on current high-end phones. If you're a Galaxy Nexus owner who falls into the latter camp, you're in luck: XDA member "mrx8836350" (catchy!) has developed a method for banishing the navigation buttons altogether.
