Samsung Nexus S (T-Mobile) Review

 

When Google released the Nexus One, it was easily the best Android phone on the market and remained king of the hill for many months. Its successor is also on the bleeding edge when it comes to software, but the Nexus S' hardware is behind the curve....

Samsung Nexus S Review

 

At Rs. 29,590, the Nexus S is slightly overpriced in a price segment that is becoming ever increasingly populous and competitive. While we appreciate our first look at a pure Android system with Gingerbread, the device itself was underwhelming for a...

Pure Android experience for tweakers, Nice bundled earphones, and good music performance, The phone is fast and responsive, Very frequent patches and updates

A number of small usability-affecting glitches are present, Battery life isn't as good as expected, As a phone, we found the ringer and vibration system too weak, incoming calls get easily missed
