Contract-free Galaxy Nexus falls to $399 as Galaxy S III looms

Updated 4 years ago

Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus is now available for just $399 without a contract from Google’s online Google Play store. Contract-free smartphones are typically much more expensive — the iPhone 4S, for example, starts at $649 without a carrier contract in the U.S. The flagship Google phone was unveiled last October, but it didn’t launch on Verizon Wireless until mid-December last year. Despite its age, however, the Galaxy Nexus can still hold its own in the current smartphone market. Spec highlights include a 4.65-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 16GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and GSM/HSPA compatibility with both AT&T and T-Mobile. Though the HTC One X and One S are now available internationally and Samsung is on the verge of announcing its next-generation Galaxy S III smartphone, the Galaxy Nexus is still a great handset at this price.
