Samsung Galaxy Nexus — Where To Buy

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is all the rage at the moment, so it’s only right for us to give you all the information you need for where you can preorder/purchase the magical, revolution, this changes everything again awesome device. We’ve included major online retailers from the UK as well as trusted retailers from here in Australia. You could always try eBay, but we don’t trust it as much as these retailers.

As usual it’s cheaper to import the device from the UK, however, you do risk having to send your device all the way back to the UK if something happens to your Galaxy Nexus during the 12 month warranty period. If you buy it in Australia you’re treated to a full 2 years warranty from MobiCity where your device is sent to one of their repairers here in Australia, or you can pay a bit less and have a single years warranty from Kogan — though I have seen a few complaints about them in the comments. With imports out of the way, you can always wait around and get the Galaxy Nexus from one of the carriers here in Australia whom are planning on stocking it. We’ve heard from our sources that Optus are wanting to stock the device ASAP and Vodafone are staying suspiciously mumon the matter.Let us know where you’re getting yours in the comments below. I believe most of our team are going with Handtec.

Can’t give up both a card slot and be expected to settle for 16GB
My 3.5 year old iPhone is the same and is FULL. Music + HD Video + 5MP = Frustration
Hurry up with the 32GB before I buy another Apple

OMG, $799?  Even at the iPhone introduction over 4 years ago it was ‘just’ $600 USD.  What decade is Samsung trying to live in?

MobiCity $817, or $718 from Handtec. Don’t think the different warranty that will likely never be used is really worth $100.

I believe that at the moment Handtec is selling it in total for $675.4056 Aus dollars. 

Because we outside the EU we don’t have to pay VAT and delivery will take 3-4 days. This is just for those who couldn’t be bothered doing a little bit more research.

sgbest may be an option other than the US of A, UK and aus provider

With this phone, I would be willing to give up either 32GB or microSD slot, but not both. 16GB is cutting it awfully close and with that gorgeous screen, you really want to shove video on it. If this 16GB variant is the only one that becomes available, I’ll probably just wait until the comparable Galaxy S III or something.

MobiCity now as it at $799, doesn’t seem to be extra for 24month warranty

Mobicity down to $799, with 24 months warranty not so bad deal.

Mobicity looks like the way to go

But my SGS2 just arrived…
Might just CM7.1 it 😛

I am keen for the Galaxy Nexus however I want to know when Sammy is going to release the “Samsung Galaxy S II HD”  in Australia. In my book this could be a contender….

I was hoping to buy one, but for the price I’m definitely sticking with my Desire. I just can’t justify that much money when I’m considering building a desktop right now as well. When I bought my Desire outright, the $750 didn’t even phase me for some reason, but now I just can’t see the value of ~$700 for a phone.

What’s the expectation of an outright price here if Kogan and Mobicity are hovering around $800? It’s crazy!

As always you keep those of us in Aus in the loop.  Thanks all at Ausdroi

Thought I had read or heard somewhere that Voda ad the worldwide first dibs on this so would assume it will come to them.  However I have no interest in a Voda Nexus.  I am probably unique but the 4.65″ is a bit on the large size.  Still loving my Nexus One & not sure I want one too much bigger.  But ICS is a big draw.

You’re not alone. I have tiny hands so a 3.7″ screen phones are about all I can comfortably handle. My next phone will probably be 4″ though so I will have to get used to the size… I won’t go any bigger than 4 at this stage.

I got a dell Streak early on and 5 inches is big, but now all decent high end phone’s are on average 4.3 inches. I’m using a Motorola Atrix now which I think is great at 4″, but I’m tempted to go back to my streak even though it has half the ram and half the processing power being only a 1GHz chip, but with Launcher Pro it was a supersmooth experience eitherway. I think in a nutshell casual usage and primarily as a phone 3.5-4inch is OK, but any other type of usage and a 4.3″ and beyond is… Read more »

Nice post Buzz, although it gets me wondering, who’s going to jump on this boat? Apart from ICS, NFC (useless in Oz for now) and a slightly bigger screen why wouldn’t you just buy the SGS2?

If you already had the sgsII I can see why you may not upgrade, but if you had the choice between the two you’d pick the Nexus every time! Quicker updates, far superior screen, original and unique design, quick shot camera

I believe there is no micro sd card in the Nexus. This is important for me as i hold all my music on the card. 32gb may suffice on the Nexus but i prefer an sd card

higher density screen, too! Also being a Nexus device ensures that it gets OS upgrades faster than if it were a Touchwiz, Sense or Blur build..

Cynogen will have ICS sorted, so i’m also voting for sgs 2.

@JeniSkunk:disqus internal storage on ‘stock’ Android is always mounted at /sdcard/ so you’d just transfer cm9-galaxynexus.zip across with the phone in Mass Storage mode. I imagine it’ll be like the Nexus S in that regard.

edit: was talking about the SGNexus and no microSD, not the SGS2.

Without a microSD slot, how would you be able to put Cyanogen, or any other ROM for that matter, onto it?

will probably order mine mid November/December from Handtec! first gotta sell off my Atrix to a lucky buyer 😛 Thank god you guys posted this article! I was going to buy a galaxy S II from Kogan due to my limit being $700 😛

16GB version is going to be very limiting for people who like to take highest possible reso pictures and 1080p videos as there’s only about 11gb free for user storage.

I can’t remember which onseller it was (either Clove or Handtec) but one of them stated that the 32GB version wasn’t even going to be available in the UK.

I took a day or two to think about it, kept an eye on the Whirlpool forums to see what the options were, then went with Handtec.

I’m really not too worried about waiting for a 32GB version – I use half of my 8GB SD card on my Desire HD, and half of the 1.5GB internal storage.  Looking forward to mid-November!

Waiting patiently for news on Telstra pricing and availability….

I’ll be looking at getting mine through Handtec, possibly the 32GB model when they get a price for it

if I hadn’t just bought a Sensation, I’d be getting the Galaxy Nexus (terrible name – Nexus Prime sounds way better!) from Handtec. My last three phones have been from them, and I’ve never not had a great experience.

…but I probably wouldn’t. I hate capacitive buttons as it is, let alone onscreen ones!

I’ve ordered from Handtec as well.

I’m coming from 48gb but what choice is there? If 32gb comes out later I will get it, but I don’t think we will see it anytime soon. Remember the sgsII 32gb model? That never materialised..
