    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......

  • Samsung Google Nexus S review: Royal droid
    GSMArena team
    11 Feb 2013 | gsmarena

    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.

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...
