My new phone – Samsung Google nexus S

10 February 2011 No Comment

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

Connectivity

  • 3.5mm audio jack
  • micro USB
  • BlueTooth
  • WiFI

Sensors:

  • three-axis gyroscope
  • accelerometer
  • 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.

Anyway a full review and more impressions you can found here: Samsung Google Nexus S – The new Android phone from Google.
