T3 Awards Phone of the Year - the candidates

Samsung Galaxy Nexus

The Nexus range has always been fascinating to gadget fans, representing Google's vision of what an Android device should look like and how it should behave - but does the Nexus measure up to its Samsung brother - the Galaxy S3?

One of the biggest reasons to pick up the Galaxy Nexus is the fact it's going to get all the Android updates sooner than the competition, with Android Jelly Bean beaming down to the device soon.

Add in NFC capabilities, a large screen with pin-sharp resolution and a super-fast camera mode and you can see why this could be considered one of the phones of the year.

Beavis says: "While it's a gorgeous phone it may struggle in this category against the might of the Galaxy S3 and One X. As we noted in our Samsung Galaxy Nexus review it's going to be one of the most up to date phones, but in terms of raw power and functionality it doesn't have the clout of the competition."
