Phone Review » Nexus S » Ugly, Buggy, Slow

The Nexus S is the new Google Android phone. It is sold exclusively by Best Buy in the U.S. for the T-Mobile network.

This is my personal review of the Nexus S with pros and cons. I will update this page as I learn more.

I'm especially interested in the Nexus S because it is Google's premium phone and helps set the bar for developers and handset makers, so this review will emphasize things that I see as notably different from other premium Android phones.


Pure Android Gingerbread

New hardware


Ugly in several ways

Buggy in several ways

Slow in several ways


The Nexus S feels half-baked or rushed to launch. It's not an iPhone-killer, and in my opinion it's not a must-have phone unless you absolutely need pure Android Gingerbread or the Near Field chip.
