For a previous rooting of the device is necessary, but which entail a loss of warranty.
In the UK the first Smartphone running Google Android, cream sandwich is already published ice.The Galaxy is the nexus for the time being no Flash support, but shows good benchmark results.Also, a first bug is known.
The successor of the nexus S was anticipated with great excitement and the rumor mill bubbling, until Google then mid-October that Samsung Galaxy nexus officially presented – and also introduced the latest version of the operating system Android, ice cream sandwich 4.0. After the Smartphone is available now since last Thursday in the UK, users have published first benchmarks and also reported problems.
Nexus which has loud Our site the bug so that it missed incoming calls by alone in the silent mode. Then, also the volume control should not more reasonable work. The bug shows up only in GSM mode.
