As the current Google flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Nexus by Samsung is the first device to run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The super large, super high-resolution display on the Galaxy Nexus is a dream to look at, and the new Android operating system gives users something very new and interesting to work with. It's a good combination.
The version for Verizon's LTE network in the U.S. is slightly thicker than the European model, but it also gets a larger battery. Otherwise, they're functionally the same - apart from the 15Mbps 4G downloads on the Verizon model, of course.
The phone does seem to have a flaw from scratch, though. Reception, especially on 4G, it can be a problem. Not everybody seems to experience this, but apart from that, the Galaxy Nexus is every bit the hero smartphone that Google needs it to be to move Android to the next stage of its evolution. It's a great device.

The iPhone 4S looks identical to last year's model but comes in a new 64GB flavor and upgrades the camera to include an 8-megapixel sensor with improved low-light performance and 1080p video capture.
