Not content with sporting the latest version of popular operating system Android, the Google Nexus S also boasts an eye catching look together with an array of fun and useful features. All of these points combine to give us what is one of the most impressive handsets of 2011.
There is very little variation between different smart phone models, mainly because of the obvious contrstaints of needing to house a large front facing screen in a chassis that is as small as possible, it really does not leave much room for manouvere. Therefore the Nexus S is refreshing in that it sports a very slightly curved screen, this is very minimal, yet does enought to make the phone stand out from the crowd. Couple this with the neatly rounded edges and you have as stylish a phone as you are likely to encounter. At 123.9 x 63 x 10.9mm, the overall size is roughly what you would expect from a model with a 4 inch display, yet the weight is impressive at just 129 grammes. In practice this means that you hardly notice that you have the phone on your person, yet the leightweight plastic body used does make the phone feel cheaper than similar metallic counterparts. The modern screen uses the latest Super AMOLED screen, popular in the Samsung Galaxy S, and as the phone is built by the Korean firm, its no surprise that great features such as this are included. At 480 x 800, resolution is up there with the very best, and you can be assured of a vivid and vibrant image on graphics, web pages or media thanks to the great range of 16 million colours that can be shown
The Nexus S from Google not only impresses with its looks, but also with the excellent operating system, backed up well by a list of features any phone would be proud to sport.
The Google Nexus S and the Nokia C7 are available now.
