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.
Excerpt: Fans of stock Android phones and owners of the original Nexus S looking for a speed boost will find the Nexus S 4G an intriguing choice. This "younger, faster brother of T-Mobile's Nexus S," as Joshua Munoz of AndroidCentral.com describes it, sports the same glossy plastic design of the original...
Pros: Integrated Google services a snap to set up. Wealth of apps. Super speedy processor makes quick work of tasks. Slick-looking, almost symphonic form-factor; Contour Display and hand-friendly backside are a delight to talk to. More deeply connected to the internet than your basement-dwelling, neck-...
Cons: Interface seemingly still designed primarily for dudes who dig binary. Greatly improved multitouch text selection means text editing is now merely horrible instead of atrociously shameful. Autocorrect seemingly programmed by non-native English speaker.

Pros: Fast performance, Good quality screen, Robust communications suite with 4G and NFC
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.
