Samsung Nexus S

CNET
8 September 2011
  • Summary: The Samsung Nexus S brings a much-needed stock Android OS, Gingerbread, to AT&T. But eight months after its original debut, the handset feels underpowered and behind the smartphone curve.
  • Cons: The Samsung Nexus S feels rather fragile, and it lacks a memory card slot and LED notifications. AT&T added no new features, and data speeds were slow.

Samsung Nexus S 4G Review

Brighthand
8 June 2011
  • Summary: If you're looking for an iPhone clone that runs Android, the Samsung Nexus S 4G is pretty much right for you. It may not be the most original design available, but it's fast, light, powerful, and meets the demands that most users would place on it. It doesn't have the cutting-edge features like a qHD screen, dual-core processor, or HDMI video-out, but with 4G data on Sprint's network, it offers a lot for the Internet hungry user who doesn't care about a keyboard.
  • Pros: Fast performance, Good quality screen, Robust communications suite with 4G and NFC
  • Cons: No microSD slot

Samsung Google Nexus S Review: In Depth

Recombu
6 June 2011
  • Conclusion: There's no doubting that this is the best Andoid phone available, and the screen looks great. Everything runs at a great speed, and crashes are very rare. Yet it's not quite perfect, and the big question is whether people will choose this over the iPhone. It's a bit complicated, and the camera isn't as good as it should be. There's no way we can try out the much-touted Near Field Communication (NFC) chip yet, but this phone shows off what is possible on Android.

Samsung Nexus S Review

thinkdigit.com
2 June 2011
  • Summary: At Rs. 29,590, the Nexus S is slightly overpriced in a price segment that is becoming ever increasingly populous and competitive. While we appreciate our first look at a pure Android system with Gingerbread, the device itself was underwhelming for a number of small reasons that just pile up, and detract from the overall experience. It's not a bad phone by any stretch of the imagination, but as it stands, the Nexus S didn't quite bowl us over.
  • Pros: Pure Android experience for tweakers, Nice bundled earphones, and good music performance, The phone is fast and responsive, Very frequent patches and updates
  • Cons: A number of small usability-affecting glitches are present, Battery life isn't as good as expected, As a phone, we found the ringer and vibration system too weak, incoming calls get easily missed

Review Samsung Google Nexus S I9020/I9023 Smartphone

Notebookcheck
1 June 2011
  • Summary: Off Topic. Recently, a lot of readers have requested reviews of Smartphones. So here we are with our first in-depth review of a Smartphone, to be specific: the Samsung Google Nexus S. We tested two versions of this "Google Mobile“: the Nexus S I9023 with Super Clear LCD and the more expensive Nexus S I9020 with the much-cited Super AMOLED LCD.
  • Pros: Attractive design, Very good display (Amoled and SuperClear), Latest software, Fast user interface, Good camera, Integrated NFC, The good feeling/hope in a few months/years? To have the Software up-to-date.
  • Cons: Okay material quality, No MicroSD slot, Belonging to the first class. Still, the dual-core CPU and the good case are nice features.

Samsung Nexus S 4G review

Pocketables
31 May 2011
  • Summary: As I end my time with the Nexus S 4G, I've found that there are many small little problems that both Google and Samsung will need to fix quickly. The reception issue is much like Antennagate, and the screen responsiveness is just horrid. But, then again, no device is perfect, and a stock Gingerbread experience more than makes up for the bad things in this device.

Samsung Nexus S 4G

LAPTOP Magazine
14 May 2011
  • Summary: In some ways the Nexus S 4G is behind the curve among $199 Android phones. It doesn't boast a dual-core processor or HD video recording. What this device brings to the table is an interface that's not cluttered with carrier apps and the ability to leverage new features as Google rolls them out. We also love how Netflix movies and TV shows look on the Super AMOLED screen, and that you can use your Sprint number as your Google Voice number.
  • Pros: Crisp and colorful Super AMOLED display, Can use Sprint number as Google Voice number, High-quality Google video calls, Works with Netflix
  • Cons: Feels a bit slower than dual-core phones, Doesn't record HD video

Nexus S 4G

MobileTechReview.com
11 May 2011
  • Conclusion: If you're looking for an Android phone with the latest greatest OS and a guarantee that you'll see future OS updates too, the Google Nexus S by Samsung is hard to beat. It's sleek, light, has a wonderful Super AMOLED display and 4G. The pure Google experience means earlier access to OS updates and a faster phone. It's also a more pocketable phone than the HTC EVO 4G for those of you looking for a candybar Android 4G smartphone. The only drawback?
  • Pros: Latest Android OS, excellent display, pure Android.
  • Cons: 4G eats battery, reception is mediocre.

Google Nexus S Review by Aaron

7 April 2011
  • Summary: Like the Nexus One, the Google Nexus S is the ultimate device for Android die-hards.  Though not as ahead of the curve as the Nexus One was when it launched, the 1 GHz processor, 4-inch Super AMOLED display, and Android 2.3 make it a viable smartphone option for many.  That said, the stock build of Android continues to be rough around the edges, so first-time T-Mobile smartphone buyers or those that want a more aesthetically pleasing build of Android will be happier with...
  • Pros: Absolutely beautiful display; front-facing camera for video calling; offers the latest version of Android (2.3).
  • Cons: Plastic build quality may turn off prospective buyers; battery takes too long to charge.
