Just the other day I was complaining about the terrible state of Android commercials. With it’s new “Calling All” commercial for the soon-to-launch Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Google has given me one less reason to complain. Instead of going on and on about the specs, it shows real-world use cases for how people can take advantage of the device. See the world, capture the world, enjoy the world with a phone. Excellent.

That’s not the only video emerging from Google today. The company has a slew of help videos showing the Galaxy Nexus features in action. The new video playlist “Getting to know your Galaxy Nexus” shows Google illustrating how to do simple things like create a folder, change a wallpaper, use the camera, face unlock, Android beam, and get started with the set-up in the United States or abroad.

The “Getting Started” US video shows the GNex with a 4G LTE Verizon logo on the back. We still don’t know when the Verizon version is coming to America, but we at least know the full spec details courtesy of the Galaxy Nexus page. Take a look at the videos and specs below.
