I started with a Blackberry Curve, moved on to the Palm Pre and now I bought this phone. It is hands down the best phone I've ever owned. The touchscreen is very sensitive, the phone is lightweight and slim, the screen is super bright and very colorful. I will be making a lot of comparisons to the Palm Pre, as that was the first touchscreen phone I had before this one.
It takes great pictures (with a flash or without), the front-facing camera and videos are a plus for me. Taking pictures on the Palm was very difficult. The camera was on the back and the button was on the front of the touch screen.
Texting is easier on this one with auto text, it was different than the autotext features I've used in the past. You can select the word, or keep typing as you were. It doesn't finish the word, forcing a backspace to correct and change it. The dictionary has a LOT of words, proper names and even those #$%& words that I use frequently. The suggested words come up in a space above your text message, so there's several to choose and it seems to "read" my mind when I typo horribly at times.
The number of free apps available on Android is crazy - the Palm was missing out on those. The keyboard works with the phone vertically or horizontally, depending if you have big or small thumbs :) The lag time on the Palm for the phone to "flip" from horizontal to vertical was noticeable and annoying. This one responds immediately.
I don't personally use my phone for MP3s as I use Pandora (a free app available on Android Market). The Pandora app works well without interruption, as opposed to the Palm which seemed to experience a lot of freezing and/or lagging.
Right now, the only thing I don't like is that it came with no type of carrying case and the battery life sucks. I've gotten used to having my phone on the charger constantly as the Palm Pre was horrible on battery life as well. I found that my old Palm chargers work with this phone, so I now have one for the car, one at work, one at home and all of them work with the USB plug to charge on the computer. If you have a standard micro USB charger, it will work with this phone perfectly. It comes with a wall charger in the box, but with the battery life (or lack thereof) you'll need either a battery backup, or a couple chargers.
The phone is fast, responds immediately when an app is opened and so far I haven't had it freeze up on me. Loading my contacts was easy with a Gmail account. Login to Gmail, sync account and voila. It took a few seconds and all of my contacts with phone numbers/email addresses were loaded. I also use it with 2 Hotmail accounts. On the Palm, I continually had errors for incorrect password (it was stored in the phone and it was correct) or SSL certificate errors, etc. randomly through the day. I haven't had a single issue with this phone and email synching.
I'm sure there are 100 other reasons to love this phone, but I'm extremely happy I bought it. I already see so many features that it has over the Palm or Blackberry and I know I made the right choice.
I will say, it's for the technology savvy person. I wouldn't recommend it for someone who hates computers and isn't into technology at all. I think it would be too much for someone like that. For me, I love gadgety goodness and I never read instructions for electronics, I prefer to figure things out myself. This phone was very easy to figure out, but not super user-friendly. Hope you love it!
Last year I've started my journey into the world of smartphones with a Palm Pre, incidentally that phone had great features but had lack of 3d party app support. Once my contract expired I upgraded with the Nexus S 4G, which in a way answered almost all my frustrations, but somewhat lacked some of the features I'm used too in a WebOS device.
Some highlights of the phone itself would be the screen itself featuring a super amoled screen, which is pretty vibrant/luminous and also at high settings resists sun glare. It could have used gorilla glass because like any other phone its prone to scratches and the occasional bruise.
I'm fairly satisfied with android 2.3.7 as it address almost all of my wishes. With the upcoming update of android 4.0 ics, things couldn't have been better. For instance the camera(5mp) is fairly good but not great but with 4.0 comes a redesigned camera app that further adds function into an already great experience.
Battery life in my personal use tends to be around 9-11 hours depending on talk time and service available, I keep my settings on bare minimum with the exception of always having 4G on, while everything else(bluetooth,wifi,nfc) are off.
With Nexus Prime coming out right around the corner this phone still seems to me to be a competitive contender with perhaps a price drop when the successor comes out. The Prime improves upon all aspects of the phone, id highly recommend waiting upon the Prime which should hit carriers early next month. While on Sprint though the choices are limited to Nexus 4G/Iphone 4/4S.
I purchased this phone for I wanted to take advantage of all of the features, widgets, and applications of Android, specifically Gingerbread 2.3.4.
Likes: I like all the apps you can download from the Android Market, the screen, how sensitive to the touch it is, how customizable it is, the live wallpapers, and how fast the phone is.
Dislikes: I've read this keeps happening to many other people: The keyboard application crashes constantly, even when using different keyboard apps. It's really frustrating and annoying, to the point that I am about to sell this phone and purchase a Galaxy S2. I read this issue is related to the OS itself (Froyo doesn't have this prob) and due to a memory fault. I have to kill the process manually every single day and some times even reboot it. This alone messed up my Nexus S experience.
Another downer is the camera shutter button. Since it's on the screen rather than on one of the sides of the phone, I tend to touch the wrong button or exit out of the camera app. I didn't find a way to zoom in or out either...
3rd, some applications seem to open up by themselves and run on the background, draining your batter life very quickly. Google Maps and Skype are 2 apps that love doing that. I have to keep checking all apps and kill them every time, which has better the battery life but is really annoying.
This brings me to the final topic: Battery life. As with this generation of smartphones, get used to daily charges, and even more often so if you browse the web a lot. I had to get one of those chargers for the car and carry the micro-USB to USB cable so I don't get incommunicated.

The ONLY unlocked version of the Nexus S that supports 3G for AT&T in the states! Model is GT-I9020A, NO OTHER GSM MODELS SUPPORT AT&T 3G.
Now that I've said that; this phone is fast, easy to use, and doesn't come pre-loaded with "bloatware" that over-fills the phone with useless un-erasable apps that you can't get rid of. Plenty of space, perfect performance, well worth the money.
There is no space to put a micro-SD card. If you *have* to have a micro-SD card, don't get the phone. 16GB is more than enough space for music and any additional add-ons for the phone.
The Nexus S gets every android system update FIRST, before all other android phones because it is "pure Google" which also keeps you 100% up to date with all of the features that you want. A+++ product. I love it.
