Samsung Google Nexus S Review
1 October 2013
Excerpt: The Samsung Google Nexus S is a consumer-friendly smartphone that runs on the latest Android operating system 2.3 Gingerbread. Attractive, lightweight and packed with features, the Samsung Google Nexus S is not quite an ‘iPhone-killer’, but nonetheless gives it a pretty good mauling.
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.
Excerpt: For its next-generation Nexus phone, the unlocked Nexus S made by Samsung (but usually sold with a T-Mobile subsidy for $199.99), Google has produced what can be best described as an advanced basic smartphone.
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.
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.
Pros: Latest Android OS, excellent display, pure Android.
Summary: Super phone. Smartphone. Call it what you will, the Google-branded phones have made a huge impact in the mobile arena over the last two years. Every year, Google makes a show of its Android improvements with an actual device, starting with the T-Mobile G1 (otherwise known as the HTC Dream ),...
Conclusion: Perhaps Google intentionally named their second Nexus phone the Nexus S rather than the Nexus Two. Maybe their goal was not to create a “2.0” device with the Nexus S, but rather to create a device that would be complimentary to their first Nexus phone. The Nexus S feels just like that.

Conclusion: By now, you should have gotten the idea that I’m a big fan of the Nexus S. If I hadn’t have bought the Desire HD when it first came out, I would be holding a Nexus S in my hands right now – it’s that good!
Excerpt: Up for review this week, we have one of the newest Android devices, the Nexus S by Samsung. Featuring a 4” AMOLED display, a 1 GHz processor, and the latest version of Android (Gingerbread), the Nexus S is a great device for Android fanatics, as well as those entering the smartphone market for the...
