Samsung Google Nexus S
2 weeks ago
Summary: "This phone fails in the most important aspect, signal reception. It is lousey.... I bought this phone to replace my screen damaged old N95 8GB, the Nokia where I live had no problem uploading/downloading emails on the fairly weak 3G signal in my area. The Samsung just informs me "data connection error" "data network unavailable" in very pretty high resolution fonts with no help system to diagnose faults or resolve the problem.
Pros: Excellent shape and size, much sleeker than an iPhone. Links up very well with all Google apps, as it should. Rarely crashes. Good music app. Pretty good call quality. Solid battery life. Chrome browser.
Cons: Laughably inadequate camera that does not even have a zoom function. Touch screen is often erratic. Phone charge is not compatible with other Android devices making charging an ordeal. Difficult to copy and paste text.
Summary: The design had me from the start. -no birth dates in contacts, did anyone test the contacts before roll-out? (use gmail to put these in) -bad service and drooped calls (wife has HTC inspire, gets service where i don't) -no zoom for camera (how you miss this in testing, idk) overall, i want to return the phone but am past my 30 days. I can overlook the birthdays and zoom. But missed calls and dropped calls are frustrating.
Pros: Lightweight, comfortable size
Cons: Did not meet expectations, no contact birthday, no camera zoom, poor reception
Summary: (Please Note: Original Review April 19, 2012) Only been using this unit for 24 hours. It's replaced a wonderful barely-two-years-old Google Nexus One that went bad (random infinite reboot loop and heating up) that HTC couldn't remedy without an expensive out-of-warranty repair. There's a lot to like about this Samsung Nexus S: Wonderfully bright and sensitive display. No artificial GUI mandated by the carrier (AT&T Wireless).
Summary: This is a device that is raw Android. Have been waiting for ICS on it. But no downloads yet. It still does not do copy and paste. Had problems syncing with google services. However being that it was raw android and unlocked was the main reason I got the phone.
Phone is good but network connection sucks big time

Summary: I didnt want to give more than 2.5 stars for it but then on the second thought I decided to give it 3. Ill just write a small review. Camera is not very good. Got all the features that it says it has. Worst problem is network connection. it gets disconnected even when you are talking to someone.. which is irritating and u feel like throwing your phone.
Summary: I ordered a Nexus S i9020a with BLUTEKUSA and they sent me the i9020a, not the tmobile version. Im happy because I can use it with 3G in my country. I recommend it very much, its so smooth and nice. ***Update September 15th 2012. I have 6 months with the phone now, I must say... It has a lot of issues. It got slower after I downloaded some apps and games. The screen broke the first time it fell to floor 3 months ago.
