    For the last few days I`ve been using the Google Nexus S, manufactured by Samsung, with the new Android 2.3 u201cGingerbreadu201d operating system. This is a phone that was designed with direct input from the Google Android team. And like its predecessor, the......

    Another year, another heir to the Droid throne – and Google are trying to be democratic about it. Which is a roundabout way of saying they’re not monogamous. For the Nexus One, Google teamed up with HTC. This time around, they trusted Samsung to do the job, using the Galaxy S as a base. Google Nexus S official photos It’s only their second try and users are given a second chance to like the Royal Droid. A tall task it is – the very concep...

    Verdict: We donÂ’t quite know what to make of the Google Nexus S. When the Nexus One came out, it packed some of the most powerful hardware available at the time. The Nexus S is the spitting image of the Samsung Galaxy S, which has been around for almost a...

    UPDATE: Now read our Hands on: Samsung Galaxy Nexus review. Since launching, the Nexus S has undergone a price drop, which we`ve now reflected in the review. We`ve also had a few more weeks to play with it, and found a few extra features we thought worth highlighting. There`s also an improved camera section, so check out our detailed look at the snapper-power from Google`s latest design. The Google Nexus S wasn`t supposed to happen according to S...

    Pros: Snappy OS, Android 2.3 with early future updates, Stunning AMOLED screen, Improved battery life, Cool lock screen animation,

    Cons: Underpowered UI, Not enough Home screen widgets, Slight freezing at times, Light design, Random phone restarting,

    Verdict: A solid if unspectacular performance from Google - it`s a great phone with a very usable interface, but perhaps lacks the wow factor of some of its contemporaries...

    Knowing that Google would only learn from its mistakes, it`s come back strong in announcing the Google Nexus S which is being manufactured by Samsung. Sporting a new maker and sales process, the Google Nexus S employs some new technology under the hood......
