The Galaxy Nexus has been tested in terms of processor speed, camera quality and ease-of-use, but we all know the most important, unanswered question: can it survive a stir fry on a stove? In the battle for smartphone supremacy, that is the only question that TRULY matters.
Seriously, I've seen plenty of stress tests – in which websites or individuals attempt to destroy "tough" and average Android tablets and phones — but never one that tested whether a phone could be boiled alive and then served up on a plate.
