eBay's Daily Deals is once again proving its capacity for awesome - by offering the GSM unlocked Samsung Galaxy Nexus for just $370. And as far as I can tell, at least in California, you won't even have to cough up sales tax - making this an even better deal than Google's $400 (which totals out at $440 with tax and shipping for CA).

So, you might want to get on that. Like, now. Because we doubt they're going to last.

    nah i dont care that its a nexus its too late at this point its soo old might as well wait for the next one.

    • TOMMMMMM

      If you're into flashing ROM's and want stock Android, there is no better device.

      Also, on screen buttons.

        i am but im very happy with my s2 and i love touchwiz. stock lacks some features. 

        • Luis Augusto Fretes Cuevas

          I own a SGS II and after using CM9/AOKP there's no way I can stand using TouchWiz 4, it's impossible. Also, the difference between stock applications and TW apps is just too much. 

          • Juzer

            Because TouchWiz is not funny joke from Samsung. Never again this Sh*t!

            i have to disaggre. just this morning i flashed an aokp and was back to tw in 10 mins i didnt even back it up for "maybe" later. yea it looks nice and stuff but until they can fix all the bugs im still on the fence i kind of want to but the features are what keep me coming back also like the look(currently have the new s3 tw launcher) but thats just me. as for the stock apps i hate some of the stock ones like the stock email and music player suck compared to the tw ones. u cant even pinch to zoom out on the stock email whats up with that

          • Luis Augusto Fretes Cuevas

            @fixxmyhead:disqus What bugs? What do you mean? 

            "like the look(currently have the new s3 tw launcher)"You mean cartoonish GB-like icons and theme? Well... The new launcher is decent enough though.

            "i hate some of the stock ones like the stock email and music player suck compared to the tw ones"You can pinch-to-zoom in stock email, you can't on GMail, and you can't on GMail regardless of TouchWiz or CM. Both stock music players are garbage, but Apollo is a lot better than the stock player on TW, personally, I use Google's Play Music.

            cant reply to ur other post so ill do it here. i was talking about the bugs in aokp. hey everyone likes different things we cant all automatically love stock yea its nice but i like tw more im digging the new s3 look though i switch between that and apex. idk if u could pinch to zoom out on the stock email (gmail, yea i know u cant) it must of been a bug on the crappy rom i had and i have a pet peeve of only using stock apps and i prefer the samsung ones than the stock ones. tried apollo but like i said i have a pet peeve and i dont use google music everything is on my sd card.

      Are You joking off course...? 

      Galaxy Nexus is still the best mobile on the whole market!!!

      Only Android phone with that great support straight from Google.

      • fixxmyhead

        I'm being serious. People need to stop thinking just cuz its a nexus it's automatically "the best". It has its flaws too u know

    a lousy 5mp camera when everyone else had 8mp at the time of release?  My wife has one and compared to the camera on my Note, the 5mp really sucks... terrible pictures.  And if you buy it here, who are you going to get support from?  Certainly not Google.  And FYI, Samsung does not support unlocked phones (I found out with my international Note), so you'd be smarter to get it from Google and at least have some support.

    • Eric To

      Unless you're printing out pictures the size of your front door, the 5mp VS 8mp debate is stupid.  Barring huge posters, it has never been a game of megapixels.  Once we exceeded 1MP it was all about the quality of the optics and the sensors. I wish folks would get this right.

    • renGek

      Pretty much most people who buys the GNEX knows what they are doing. The phone will be unlocked and rooted pronto by the owner so no vendor would support it anyway. The dev community is our support and is so strong it doesn't matter what software issues arise unless you don't really know what you are doing.

      And please don't fall for "the greater the MP the better the quality". One has nothing to do with the other. Its a marketing gimmick and you are falling for it. I am amaze at the # of people who still falls for the MP trick. Most people take point and shoot photos and have no idea why a shot end up the way it did. Chances are good your focus/light metering is on the wrong area which is why your shot sucked.

  • renGek

    This model is also listed as 16gigs instead of google's 32gig version.

    • jessfox

       actually the one on the google play store is also 16gb.

      • Juzer

        Off course, because 16GB is only version for global. And is only supported for Google!

        • Juzer

          Verizon CDMA is not supported from Google. Not AOSP. Not real Nexus.

          Real Nexus is on this amazing good offer.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      The 32GB GSM version doesn't exist - it was canned.

  • Juzer

    For now is 263 sold !!!

    More than one for minute... huge sale.

    This offer is incredible good!

  • Larry Marranzino

    Is this the Samsung versions meaning that the updates come from Samsung. I just feel for that I am now going to have it rooted over to get the updates from Google instead. As my Samsung Nexus is still sitting with 4.0.2 not the newest release from MARCH of 4.0.4
