User opinions and reviews

  • kedd

Had it for five years, lost it five years ago. It's probably somewhere in one of my houses. Loved the phone. It was tiny yet readable and really ergonomic in the hands. Loved the rounded corners too. Felt like a premium phone.

It's a great phone guys. I have been using it since 2011 and it never made me upset and now I have a nova 5t for new year 2021. I really liked Galaxy Nexus S.

  • Infinitrium

I had one of these way back in 2011. Wasn't a bad phone on Gingerbread 2.3, Froyo 4.1.2 effing ruined it. IMO it simply did not have the power to run Froyo properly at all
