Google Nexus S



Overview of Google Nexus S

The Google Nexus S is no longer available, as an alternative you may like to consider the Google Nexus 6.

The Google Nexus S from Samsung is an official Google handset which benefits from a vanilla version of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) being supplied. This means that you can experience the Android operating system without additional manufacturer software. How Google imagined the operating system would look and feel.

The Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system builds on some of the most popular features including multi-tasking and Wi-Fi hotspot and adds a refreshed user interface, improved on-screen keyboard, near field communication (NFC) support and more.

A brilliant 4 inch WVGA Super AMOLED Contour display is a feature of the Google Nexus S. Its curved glass screen fits comfortably in the palm of your hand and along the side of your face, while making calls. The display is also brighter with higher contrast resulting in colours which are incredibly vibrant, with text being crisp at any size.

The luminance of the display is up to 1.5 times higher than conventional LCD displays. This ensures that there is 75% less glare than other smartphone displays. While contour display uses a thin-profile glass panel, making Nexus S uniquely slim and trim.

A 1 GHz Hummingbird processor is paired with 16GB of internal memory making the Nexus S one of the fastest phones on the market. Menus open faster, tabs are more responsive, and web pages load quicker and there is virtually no lag time. Switch between apps effortlessly with true multi-tasking.

The Nexus S has a dedicated Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). This ensures that playing games, browsing the web, and watching videos is fast, fluid, and smooth. It immerses you in your media and makes browsing the web an enjoyable experience. It's like having a pocket-sized multimedia and game console.

A 5 megapixel camera is capable of taking stunning pictures and videos that you can share with friends and family. It features auto focus and flash facilities to ensure that you get the best results. The front-facing camera can take VGA quality images and videos, so that can see the person you are calling on your video calls

The Gmail app for Android has your favourite Gmail features–from labels to stars to archiving–at the touch of a finger. With push email, new messages appear in your inbox as soon as they arrive. You'll always be up to the moment.

The Nexus S comes pre-installed with the best of Google apps, including Google Search, Google Maps with Navigation, Mobile Instant, Gmail, Google Earth and more. With the Nexus S, be the first to receive upgrades, features and new apps as they become available.
