Unlocked, contract-free Galaxy Nexus falls to $349 on Google Play

Win a free Samsung Galaxy Nexus from Verizon Wireless

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus just got a major price cut in the Google Play store. You can get your hands on one of the best Android devices on the market right now unlocked and contract-free for just $349. Best of all, for that low price, it comes preloaded with the latest version of Android announced today at Google I/O, Jelly Bean.

We reviewed the original Galaxy Nexus model back in December and gave it a nearly flawless rating. The device is going to be even better now that it’s running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which includes a tremendous amount of refinements and speed enhancements across the entire operating system.

The unlocked Galaxy Nexus supports HSPA+ speeds, which is not LTE but it still qualifies as 4G. It’s a GSM device, so that means you’ll only be able to use it with either AT&T or T-Mobile in the United States, but it does support over 200 international GSM networks.

At $349, it’s a total steal especially for an unlocked phone that doesn’t require a carrier contract. You can take advantage of the deal right now in Google Play.

    I’m a big fan of the Nexus series, but I’m still trying to decide if the Galaxy Note is a better option?

      The Note II is rumored to come out in October. The next Nexus will likely land in late November or early December.

      Still, $349 for a Galaxy Nexus is a total steal in my opinion.

        I second this.

      I’m a big fan of my Note (i717). It’s fast and the devs whip out ROMs frequently.

    It actually doesn’t come with Jelly Bean. It’ll come later, though.

    goodbye android for selling hardware with no resale value as compared to iphone. this is coming from an android fan!

    i bought the galaxy nexus at launch last december for nearly $800, today six months later a new one is worth $349 (nearly 60% devaluation). on the other hand, eight months after the iphone 4s 32gb launch  (today), new units are still sold at the same price! the devaluation on used units is even more unacceptable.

    goodbye.

      True, very true but Android attacks a different segment of the market because it’s nature allows for it to be more of a competitive commodity than the iPhone. Apple doesn’t license the OS, doesn’t release a myriad of models every year or try to jump at every niche.

      The same thing that happened to Windows is happening with Android. The only major difference is that we’re seeing oem’s try to differentiate their product by using more than just crapware. The iOS ecosystem may be a better fit for you if resale value matters. I like that the prices come down as new, competitive handsets release.

      The Galaxy Nexus is still an awesome phone, it’s still very well supported and the hardware is more than capable of being relevant today. It’s no HTC One X or Galaxy S III but it’s still a good purchase.
