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.
Review Samsung Google Nexus S I9020/I9023 Smartphone
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.
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.
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.
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 ),...
Pros: Above average battery life, Smooth and fast interface, Easy handling
Cons: Lower stamina than Google Nexus S and Samsung Galaxy S, No remarkable hardware upgrades, Easily smudged due to glossy surface
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: We don’t quite know what to make of the Google Nexus S. When the Nexus One came out, it packed some of the most powerful hardware available at the time. The Nexus S is the spitting image of the Samsung Galaxy S, which has been around for almost a year.
Pros: Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support, HSDPA, 7.2 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps, 4.0" WVGA (480x800) Super AMOLED Contour Display with curved glass screen, Android OS, v2.3 Gingerbread, 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 (Hummingbird) processor, 16GB storage, 512 MB RAM, 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and geotag...
Cons: No microSD slot, No 720p video recording, All-plastic body, fingerprint magnet, No DivX and XviD support (no actual video player) out of the box, No dedicated camera key and no lens cover, No FM radio, No smart dialing, Overly expensive for its feature set
