    When you bring together the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the latest Google OS – Android 4.1, you have a powerhouse smartphone device that will surely bring the house down. The Galaxy Nexus, the world’s first-ever phone that is powered by the Android 4.1 also known as Jelly Bean, comes back in the market with its notable features and a superior user interface. Weighing 135g with dimensions of 135.5 x 67.9 x 8.9mm, this handset still dons a mediocre all-plastic design. We do like that it is minimalist, the front only featuring its 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD screen and three touchscreen buttons, which are still part of the screen display. Not to mention that its screen, with a resolution of 720 x 1280px, is bright and sharp. The Galaxy Nexus takes pride in its dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. But we’re very disappointed that the phone’s memory can’t be expanded. So, make use of that 16GB wisely. But what really empowers this handset is, of course, its operating system. The Jelly Bean makes the performance of the Galaxy Nexus slicker and a lot more responsive. Swiping through images, apps and widget menus is so smooth. Opening web pages and multi-tasking are effortless. The Android 4.1 also brings a number of new features on the table – the most eminent of which is Google Now. It keeps track of your emails, calendar events and appointments, location and search history and provides relevant data (e.g. restaurants, hotels and weather in your vicinity) through cards. Tap the cards, which usually contain basic information and a photo, to read through a more detailed page. Google Now is a bit like Apple’s Siri but without always asking it to do something for you. It is still a work in progress, but if Google continues on developing this, Google Now will definitely be the mainstream feature of Android phones. Another interesting element that comes with the Jelly Bean is the snappy transition from the lens view to the gallery view right after taking a shot using the Galaxy Nexus’ 5MP camera. With the Android 4.1, it’s easier and faster to see the photo you’ve just taken or simply take a look at all your photographs. Aside from added features, the Jelly Bean also made the Samsung Galaxy Nexus sleeker. The notifications tray, which now puts in added information, looks very polished. The icons and widgets are given refreshed looks as well. One more thing that we love about the Jelly Bean is that it gave the Galaxy Nexus a more advanced predictive keyboard that makes composing text or email messages easier. It’s like having a mind reader installed in your handset. And if you’re always on the go, you can use the offline voice typing to dictate text or email messages. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus seems like an almost perfect handset, especially with its new Jelly Bean operating system. It does, however, still come with a few flaws, including the non-expandable memory, its less-than-exciting 5MP camera and relatively easily-drained battery.
