Review: Google Nexus S review

 

The Google Nexus S, built by Samsung, is Google's latest flagship Android smartphone, and the first to run the new Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" operating system that was recently announced.

Cool curved display, good camera, updated UI, great reception, no bloatware

No HD video or camera shutter button, plastic body won't suit all

At the end of the day, though, the Nexus S still looks very much like a dozen other touchscreen slab smartphones. Sure, it's nice looking, and solidly built, but the design isn't inspired enough for the flagship device that is supposed to herald the...

Almost a full year ago, Google offered up its vision of what a mobile phone experience should be. We're not talking about just the phone itself, funny enough, but also how consumers purchase devices, choose their carriers and sign up for service. Jump...

While there are some things we wish Samsung and Google did differently with the Nexus S, at the end of the day, this is, in our opinion, the finest Android device on the market. It’s not the perfect phone, but Google’s latest “pure vision” handset...

The Android 2.3 operating system and stunning design of the Google Nexus S are the standout features available on this smartphone. This device offers what most other phones offer, but we were disappointed with the 5MP camera, short battery life and the...

Though the styling tends more to flashy than chic, this is a highly desirable Android phone

Last year, Google produced its own Android phone, the Nexus One. It was a neat handset, made for the search giant by HTC, but because it was mostly sold direct by Google it never became mass-market (H

The Google Nexus S is not to everyone’s taste. Its unskinned version of Android lacks the bells and whistles of smartphones from the likes of HTC and Samsung. But it does run the latest version of the increasingly popular Android operating system, has...

The Google Nexus S is the second Google-branded smartphone, following on from the Google Nexus. You'll find Android 2.3 in place, an incredibly thin design, and an absolutely stunning Super AMOLED screen. The good The Super AMOLED screen is the party...

Camera aside, there's very little wrong with the Google Nexus S. It's big screen is perfect for media use, the thin dimensions help to make it feel smaller than it actually is, and it's packed with features. Overall, the Google Nexus S is a very...

It's a phone from the future, available now

Google Nexus S review

 

The announcement of the Samsung-manufactured Google Nexus S in early December took almost everyone in the technology world by surprise, as Google had previously stated that it would not produce any more self-branded smartphones.

Excellent glare-resistant screen; outstanding battery life; improved messaging input; fast operating

No micro-SD slot; pinch to zoom not fully enabled

The Nexus S has slotted in nicely as the head of the Android family, but it does lack a user-friendly overlay such as HTC Sense. The device is likely to be the premier Android handset for a good chunk of 2011, although it is not an essential purchase...
