Despite the release of other contract smartphones this year, such as the HTC One X and the Windows powered Nokia Lumia 800, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is still holding its own amongst its competitors. This trusty smartphone may not be as new as some of those released in April 2012, but it is remaining a firm favourite for many customers, who appreciate the quality, style and high performance of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

One of the most popular features of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, that many existing customers adore is the built in 5 megapixel camera. This feature, like the Samsung Galaxy Note, has a built in digital camera placed to the rear of the casing. The camera technology of the Samsung Nexus, has been given several updates, and even though the megapixel amount is less than other smartphones such as the Apple iPhone 4 it still boasts the somewhat surprising capability of producing 1080p HD videos.

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus also has all the standard functions that you will need and want from a built in digital camera such as a cool smile and face detection feature; touch focus; an LED flash, perfect for taking images at night; and autofocus. Additionally, there is an image stabilisation function, so if you find that you often find it tricky to take photos, that are not blurred then this phone is perfect for you as it allows you to tackle crystal clear, and blur free photos each time.

Also a popular feature of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the screen. The Nexus, and the Samsung Galaxy Note, are known for having some of the best quality and functioning touch screens compared to many different models and brand of android powered smartphones. The high resolution of the Nexus screen, as well as the ample size, means that viewing images taken using the 5 megapixel camera, as well as watching videos is of a high and clear quality. The 720 x 1280 screen resolution also means that when you are playing your favourite games such as Angry Birds, or any others, that they are visually to a high standard also. The CPU also helps ensure that the speed of these games, along with other apps and features are quick and simple to use.

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus may not be the newest smartphone out there, but it certainly is one of the most reliable and popular. This phone is not only a favourite amongst those who like smartphones, but it was also the first to use Ice Cream Sandwich, which is the most recent android platform. When you choose this contract mobile phone, you choose a phone that is well made, and durable, so will last you a long time. It also excels in basic features such as the camera and video function, also boasting plenty of storage space for any files you wish to keep. Internet browsing is also a pleasurable experience when choosing the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, thanks to the large and high resolution touch screen.
