The Samsung Nexus S for AT&T is a handsome phone which runs stock Android 2.3, but it isn't state-of-the-art in any way....

The problem with most Android handsets is that Google’s goodness is buried beneath a proprietary skin cluttered with entertainment and social media software baubles. Worse, these skins slow the release of Android updates – manufacturers have...

If you’re looking for a plain and simple Android experience, the Nexus S is the route to go. It offers Android Gingerbread without all the bells and whistles of a customised interface offered on other manufacturers' phones. It’s not a...

Google first presented the Nexus series both in order to ease application programming to its own development teams and in order to sell mobile phones directly, without the need for outsourcing devices to mobile providers. The main characteristics of...

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...

The Samsung Google Nexus S I9020 is without a doubt an attractive Smartphone, which has a good price to performance ratio thanks to the recent fall in its retail price. The concave design gives the Nexus S a unique look, but the hardware under the...

samsung_nexus_s_smartphoneFrom the very first pocket PCs, like the iPAQs, my personal phone has always been a Windows platform. I like a fully customisable phone like the eminently capable HTC HD2. Could an android-based mobile phone like the Samsung...

Call quality was quite good on the Nexus S 4G. Callers rated it an 8/10, saying that we sounded slightly distant but not finding much to complain about. On our end it was plenty loud with a good voice reproduction even as the other party was driving...

If you’re in the market for an unlocked Android phone that is guaranteed to get first dibs on any Google updates, this is it. Samsung has typically been pretty bad with keeping up with Android versions, but this is a Nexus phone. The factory...

One of the best Android phone in the market? Currently, yes. Why? Because of the excellent hardware and software features. The Samsung Google Nexus S is not a perfect phone, but what makes it extra special is the fact the Android-owner Google is...

Overall, the Samsung Nexus S is fast, has a simple user interface and is very easy to use. In the design department, it is surely an improvement to its Nexus One older sibling. Even though it is considered as the first Android 2.3 Gingerbread...

I end the week on something of a shamefaced note–you’ll remember, a while back, when I got the chance to go hands on with a Google Nexus One. Well, I never actually thought to take on its successor, the Google–actually,...

Hard to believe it’s only been a year since the infamous Google Phone first hit the North American market. The Nexus One had many nice features but Google’s decision to sell it online instead of purchasing the handset through carriers was an...

I said it in the first thoughts post and I’ll say it again: If you own anything above a HTC Desire and don’t need a device with unlockable bootloader, the Nexus S is not really a worthy upgrade. However, if you’re running on an old...

With so many Google Android smartphones flooding the market at the moment, it's becoming increasingly difficult to pick between the various models. For many, the difference between the brands is often marginal, save for models such as Sony...

A new year brings with it a new Google Android device, i.e. the Google / Samsung Nexus S. While the "S" was never specifically named by Google, we think the word 'successor' is a perfect fit. Of course, it's also a nod back towards the...

While Nexus S is not a standout, it is still a notable competitor in the smartphone...

Overall, nobody is going to dispute that the Google Nexus S is a great phone, and for the integration with Google alone, rather than the fragmentation that Android suffers notoriously from, it is worth considering. It mixes great hardware, with great...

This is a great phone for Android devs, but for everyone else it is a bit light on features. Samsung's Hummingbird processor has guts, but doesn't save the Nexus S from web browser...

You have to have been living under a rock not to have come across the Android operating system. It has been gaining ground as a smartphone operating system at all levels of the market from high end to the sub £100 mark. The developer of the...
