Galaxy Nexus LTE no longer available through Verizon

Well, it had a good run. Unfortunately, Verizon will no longer be carrying the Galaxy Nexus LTE, even on those nice refurbished deals we’ve seen once or twice. It’s a shame to see it go, as it was Big Red’s first (and probably last) Nexus device on their network. And even with its poor battery life and mediocre camera, it was an excellent device. And if you have to be locked into a two year agreement with any device, the Nexus would be the phone you would want. Verizon may not carry it, but it’s bound to stay in the headlines for development and ports for the foreseeable future.

    In fact, more than one year of intense usage and the latest OS version I find the battery time to be excellent. Journalist and bloggers should re-review phones instead of linking to old and long overdue articles. Please behave.

      I personally owned the Nexus up until about two months ago. I used it for about six months, rooted, and always up to date. The battery life was still simply awful. Fantastic phone otherwise, and if that battery life lasts long enough for you, I’m glad you’re still enjoying it.

    Does this mean that Verizon will no longer let Android updates through to our phones?

    People need to stop this farce. The Verizon Galaxy Nexus was the WORST NEXUS EVER MADE PERIOD. I won’t even get into this joke of a device on Verizon. Bottom line everyone knows this device on Verizon was a horror I gladly sold my Galaxy Nexus and dumped Verizon for Tmobile. Thank god i did.

      “was the WORST NEXUS EVER MADE PERIOD.” Says the guy who never owned any Nexus phone other than the Galaxy Nexus… Way to base your opinion on 1 pitiful experience and then state it as fact -_-

        That’s right Sprint boy. 8 months of piss poor device support, Poor battery life, was more than enough. Maybe one day after you move out of your moms house and start paying real bills you will understand. 2 lines on Verizon monthly for 8 months is more than anything you have paid for in 5yrs. Time to man up squiddy20 give your moms a break.

          “poor device support”? Who says I need or want support from Sprint, let alone any carrier? I’ve got the bootloader unlocked and my phone rooted, any problems I have are on me and up to only me to solve them. My god you are stupid.
          “poor battery life”? It lasts a day, every day, and that’s fine for me. Throw it on the charger every night and all is well. It’s hilarious that you make insults about which you have no knowledge.
