The Impressive Google Nexus S Is Now Available On Vodafone Deals
The second instalment of the Google Nexus franchise is upon us. The Google Nexus S takes over where the Nexus One left off, bringing a wealth of cutting edge technology and impressive specifications to the table.
Weighing 129g, the Nexus S is lighter than either iPhone 4 or Desire HD, and lacks their metallic chassis as well. It does look cool, the curved shape sits well in your palm. The phone chassis has a little curve, making it feel a bit more special than others. It is minimal though, just a design twist, but a particularly smart one at that. It features the now standard micro-USB connector, a 3.5 mm jack socket, but it lacks external microSD-slots; then again, it has 16 GBs of storage, which should be enough for 99% of users’ storage requirements.
The Google Nexus S features Gingerbread (the latest Android software update), one of the greatest upgrades of which was improved power management. This means Android keeps a watchful eye on apps running in the background and shutting them down should they overstep their lines.
It also features a Samsung 1GHz Hummingbird CPU, which is responsible for awesome speeds. It features widgets from weather report through power control to rating restaurants and businesses, and of course Android Market provides seemingly limitless options for additional app downloads from numerous categories. There are currently over 100,000 available, many of which are free of charge, and the number is increasing on a daily basis.
When browsing, it is a very well usable device, with the quick CPU, and Flash enabled. It plays back embedded YouTube videos without a hitch. The camera is criticised for being feature-light, but in truth the camera takes perfectly acceptable pictures and with changing between different modes, or customising the individual shots, you can get really nice pictures in the end.
And of course the GPS; being a Google model, Nexus S naturally supports Google Earth, and it is fast, awesomely so, which is key when it comes to using a GPS in a car for satellite navigation purposes. It even saves your most often visited locations in case of offline mode.
All in all, Google has hit the nail on the head with the Google Nexus S. It offers everything that is good about Android. With this phone, you will be the first to receive Android updates, so you will be safe in the knowledge that this is a future proof smartphone. There are areas such as battery life, lasting two days easily, or internet browsing, where it simply shines. Plus, you get the user experience you simply wouldn’t from other models.
