A Look at Samsung Nexus S 4G


The Nexus S 4G is one of the latest releases by Samsung which has a hardware designed by Google.


The Nexus S 4G is one of the latest releases by Samsung which has a hardware designed by Google. It was released earlier this year in the US through T-Mobile as a GSM unlocked phone – now Samsung has partnered with Sprint for its debut on the CDMA mobile networks. The team has also added a 4G, WiMAX modem to make it interesting.

Although the Nexus S 4G is manufactured by Samsung, it is a fruition of Google’s visions of what a smartphone should be like. The search engine giant had produced the Nexus One, earlier on. Now they have come back again to show the world how the Android 2.3 Gingerbread should really be used by a developer.

Since Google has designed both the hardware and OS software of in this case, the result is a smooth experience with brilliant software integration. The new Nexus is also the first phone to run Gingerbread, the fastest Android OS to date. This gives the phone a new interface, improved keyboard, multitasking, and Near Field Communication (NFC) support – more on that later.

Some key features include internet calling; the Nexus S can make such calls with a SIP account and can even make enhanced VoIP dialing to other SIP accounts. Portable Wi-Fi hotspot is another plus point; the new Google phone can act as a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 6 devices. Google also provides some minor additions like a better user interface and easier copy-paste functions.

Nexus S 4G doesn’t lag behind the rest in other features either. Samsung has packed a 1GHz Hummingbird processor with 16GB internal memory, making it one of the fastest phones in the market to date. This allows faster browsing, more responsiveness, and easier multitasking.

Samsung also uses its advanced technology in screens and displays to provide a state-of-the-art 4 inch Contour Display. The curved glass makes the phone easier to hold in a hand and against the face while in a call. No comprise has made on display quality either; the Nexus S 4G has a brighter screen with smoother and crisper images as compared to other competitors. This technology also allows the phone to have 75% less glare than on other smartphone displays, and have a thin-profile glass panel.

The phone can also perform Near Field Communication (NFC) tasks. The Nexus can read smart tags and any object with an NFC chip, which may seem to have less applications at first, but it becomes really helpful as it transmits credit card information to make payments. That makes the Nexus S one of the first phones to use the Google Wallet service.

Other interesting aspects of this Gingerbread phone include the option to make video calls over Google Talk, Google Maps 5.0 with an ability to explore maps in 3D, and enhanced voice actions that can command the phone to perform various tasks through speech.

One thing lacking in the phone is a default camera application. Features such as touch to focus are common in smartphones these days, so it was disappointing not to find it in the Google phone. Moreover, there are a few options on setting camera effects; this makes skins such as HTC Sense and Samsung TouchWiz look much better.

All-in-all, it must be said that the Nexus S 4G is probably the best Android phone that is currently available in the market. This is because Google has worked to optimize the hardware with the Gingerbread OS perfectly. While there are a lot of great smartphones available in the market, the Nexus S is currently somewhere in the top, and it will remain there for another few months at least.

    Great print review, but your video review leaves a lot to be desired. The bulk of the video review seemed to be geared towards an I/O conference and developer speak.

    Stick with the print reviews and your golden.
