The Galaxy Nexus just became available in the UK today and the early reviews are already starting to come in. We’ve posted snippets from a few below, but you can check back for 9to5Google’s full review in the coming days.

The Verge:

The Galaxy Nexus is the best Android phone ever made. It’s one of the best smartphones ever made, and with a couple of minor tweaks (particularly to the camera), it could be the best smartphone ever produced.


The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is a big step forward for Android, but it’s not the giant leap you may have been expecting. As impressive as it is, Ice Cream Sandwich can be messy, and without it, the Galaxy Nexus is just another Android device.


After all of my fawning over the hardware, I must admit: However compelling the Galaxy Nexus is at first sight, the star of this show isn’t made of glass and plastic. No, it’s the software underneath.


Like its predecessors, the Galaxy Nexus is shaping up to be an impressive flagship phone and Android 4.0 is a significant step forward for Google.
