Google Nexus S

 

A nugget of purest Google

While it’s hardly revolutionary in terms of specifications, the Nexus S offers a refined and unsullied experience that works wonderfully in conjunction with the clean design and accomplished tech. It's the best Android yet, but time will tell how long...

Review Samsung Google Nexus S I9020/I9023 Smartphone

 

Off Topic. Recently, a lot of readers have requested reviews of S

Attractive design; Very good display (Amoled and SuperClear); Latest software; Fast user interface; Good camera; Integrated NFC

Okay material quality; No MicroSD slot

The closest competitor would be the Galaxy S also from Samsung. The Galaxy S2 is already on sale, with a new dual-core CPU and a fresh design. Apples iPhone 4 is also in the same league. Exciting: there are already rumors about the iPhone 5.

You need to enjoy repeated flashing with insecure binaries

 

At this moment I am not aware of official 4.0.3 build for this phone (i9020a), there is the official i9020t build from google that needs to be accompanied by flashing 'radio' with binary of unknown source (not even open source with signature). No...

It is a good hardware for the money

Search bug (google) ; Insecure - lack of official firmware/radio that fixes the bug, Ugly (my 16 year old does not want it) ; Time consuming - you will waste lots of time flashing/reflashing trying to get it work
