Galaxy Nexus drops to €399 in Europe

Written by Peter Scott



Deal of the Day: High-end discount


Google is apparently slashing the price of its flagship Galaxy Nexus to €399 in Europe. A couple of Austrian retailers are already shipping it for €399 and other retailers are also reducing their prices.

Although it might not sound like a bargain at first glance, the Nexus now costs as much as Samsung’s Galaxy S2, Motorola RAZR or HTC Sensation XE and it easily trounces all of them in the spec department.

We tested the Galaxy Nexus a couple of months ago and found it to be a pretty impressive piece of kit. It features a stunning 720p Super AMOLED screen and dual-core OMAP4 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. However, it also features an underwhelming 5MP camera and just 16GB of storage.

Nonetheless it is still a very good phone for the money. In terms of value, Sony’s new Xperia S is also worth looking into, as it offers 32GB of storage, 720p screen and a better camera for €450.

As phone makers start shipping the latest generation of so-called superphones, introduced at MWC a few weeks back, we will probably see quite a few similar price cuts in the high-end Android market. So, if you are looking to upgrade, it might be a good idea to sit back and wait.

You can check out the prices here.
