Everything about the phone is the same, but the price is $50 lower. Considering that this is still the flagship Android phone and that it’ll be the first one to get Jelly Bean, I’d say that there isn’t a better time to get in on the stock Android experience.
If you’ve forgotten what makes this phone great, let me refresh your memory: it is completely unlocked, runs stock Android, and is penta-band, meaning that the device is compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile in the US, as well as more than 200 other GSM carriers around the world. And since it’s unlocked, you can take it to any carrier of your choice.
Plus, it runs stock Android; updates come directly (and quickly) from Google so you’re always running the latest version of Android.
As an owner of a Galaxy Nexus, I think this is the best time to buy one of the best phones on the market. Click the source link below to get to the Galaxy Nexus page on Google Play.
