Galaxy Nexus Canadian Pricing: Now Between $330 – $380


With all this talk lately of the LG Nexus 4, it’s been a while since we’ve mentioned or thought about last year’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Despite being over a year old now, the vanilla Google phone is still quite stellar and running on the latest iteration of Android, 4.2 Jelly Bean. This is more than we can say for a lot of other, newer phones out there, as many, like the Galaxy Note, are still waiting for their 4.1 updates.

The Galaxy Nexus’ pricing seems to be coming down drastically given the age of the device as well as the fact that the Nexus 4 is about to be restocked in the Play store and coming to carriers soon. We’ve already announced that Quebec’s Videotron will be selling the device, and it’s only a matter of time before we start to see the other Canadian mobile carriers get in on the action as well.

As such, there are some good deals to be had on the Galaxy Nexus if you happen to be either a Bell, Fido, Wind, or Mobilicity customer.

Fido has the device for sale outright at $350. Bell’s pricing is $349.99. Wind is selling the Galaxy Nexus for $379.99. And finally, Mobilicity offers the best bargain out of the four, selling the phone for a low $329.99.

If you’re not the kind of person that needs the latest and greatest phone, I would really give the Galaxy Nexus some thought. In fact, I would even recommend the phone over several newer handsets out there simply due to the fact that its running on vanilla Android.

Are any of our readers on a Galaxy Nexus? Are you planning to upgrade at all soon, or do you find the Nexus still capable of keeping up in 2013? Let me know in the comments.

    I’m gonna stick it out with my Nexus. I flashed it when I first got it, so I get prompt ota updates. I did think of upgrading to the Nexus 4 because it’s faster but it’s really not worth it to me since I’m pretty happy with what I have. Im a fan of Nexus so I am keeping an eye out for the next one for sure.

    BTW welcome Mark! Looking forward to reading up on our Canadian news

      Thanks! Loving it so far. My first “welcome”!

    I will stick with my Nexus S and wait until the ‘Nexus 5’ comes out later this year. Jelly Bean 4.1.2 was pretty slow until I have found that configuring Settings > Developer Options > then turning off all animations and forcing GPU rendering speeds things up acceptably. Also, the 4.2 swype-like “JellyBean keyboard” can be installed separately. If I could get the 4.2 camera I’d have no reason to feel left out.

      Why not look at Cyanogen to see if the experience is any better?

        Hi Mark. It has been on my radar. I depend on my phone for home & work, and haven’t rooted & rom’d before so… unless 4.1 becomes unbearable and Crespo becomes bulletproof, I will probably stick it out until a new phone. Then I can play around with this one without risk.

    I have the Galaxy Nexus on Telus and I’m still on 4.1.1….. = I want 4.2.

    • AiCMark

      Why are you still only on 4.1.1. The update to 4.2 rolled out in December. You should check for updates in your system settings.

      • DCM

        I do that every single day. It says Your phone is up to date. Every day.
