Samsung Galaxy Nexus Now Available For £355

The price of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has dropped to only £355, which makes the phone cheaper than the (technically inferior) Galaxy S2.

The Galaxy Nexus, also known as the i9250, is available from Prepaymania unlocked and was released only six months ago, in November, with an original retail price of around £550.

The handset outclasses the Galaxy S2 on two main aspects. It has a bigger screen with a higher resolution (1,280 x 720 pixels on a 4.65in screen) plus it runs on the default Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich without any TouchWiz user interface.

Other features include a five megapixel camera with AF and LED, 1080p video, a secondary 1.3-megapixel camera, NFC, microUSB, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a 170mAh battery, a dual core TI OMAP4460 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB RAM and 16GB onboard storage.

Note that there's no microSD card slot and samsung has adopted a curved screen (called Contour) with Super AMOLED technology.

It is likely that the drop in price is linked to the fact that the Samsung Galaxy S3 will be launched in a few days and will take over the Galaxy Nexus, the Galaxy S2 and the Galaxy Note as the top of the range Samsung handset
