My new phone just arrived. Google Nexus S is a piece of “art”, full of features. For me is the perfect phone. I can read my email, rss feeds instantly and I can browse all my websites. Also the browser is a full featured browser (93 points from 100 in acid3 test, and in my firefox 3.6.13 under Ubuntu 10.10 I get 94 points ) with Adobe Flash on a Super AMOLED 4 inch screen. Also the Android market is full of applications and games. Everything on this phone is amazing.
Some of the features of the Nexus S are:
- Near Field Communication
- 1GHZ Processor ARM Cortex-A8 processor, Hummingbird chipset
- PowerVR SGX540 GPU
- Android Gingerbread 2.3
- 4 “ Super AMOLED
- 16GB of onboard storage
- 512MB of RAM
Another nice features:
- It can be used as WiFI hotspot.
- Support for internet calling (VOIP)
- Video recording in H.264, H.263 MPEG4
- DLNA support
- And not last Voice Actions
- anti-fingerprint coating
- capacitive touch functionality
- multi-touch support
- haptic feedback vibration
- 3.5mm audio jack
- micro USB
- three-axis gyroscope
- proximity sensor
- light sensor
Also the battery is not bad at all, 6.7 hours on 3G or 14 hours on 2G and 17.8 days on 3G standby. I should charge it every 2 or 3 days, but this is not a problem at all.
The only bad thing was the price. I want to get it now and I should pay some extra to get it, because the phone is not launched in Eastern Europe and I get it from England, it was more expensive than the original price. Anyway, if you have patience, probably you can get it at a decent price.
If you are an Android developer this phone is a must, you should get it right away, because it came with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and you will have all Google updates on time.
