Great product! Basic Android Smartphone for a reliable price!
Fans of Android will love this product! This is awesome because it's simple.
Unlocked, for any GSM carrier.
Large 4-inch screen, also very lightweight.
Two cameras, including a front-facing camera.
Includes the Hummingbird processor. Because of this, the device is super fast. It does not lag in between switching apps or checking emails.
If you need a basic smartphone, this gadget is it. It wasn't complicated and it's easy to use. Meaning anyone from 10 to 100 years-old could use this product.
If you have never used an Android phone, then you might have some trouble getting used to this at first. Once you play around with it for a few minutes, you will quickly get how to access, open, and find apps.
Other than that, this device was great!Read full review

The Samsung Google Nexus S i9020T Does Not Disappoint. Not At All.
Let me first state that my review may be slightly biased, as I have been using simple basic-functions flip phones for the last 7 years. Having said that, this phone is AMAZING. Having used flip phones for so long, I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to use the i9020. But with so many features (and it does have it's fair share), it's going to take a little getting used to before I can 100% say this phone is perfect. The main reasons I purchased this phone: [1)
I wanted a decent-quality camera. My second phone I used (Cyclops, Virgin Mobile) had a 1.3 MP camera, which at the time was rockin' for me. But ever since that phone died, I hadn't had the time nor the inclination (nor the money...) to purchase a camera. Come time for my phone upgrade, I decided I needed a phone with a nicer camera. With a 5.0 MP camera, I am completely satisfied with that.] [2) I wanted a decent mp3 player. I've been using a simple iPaq from Hewlett-Packard for my music. In the recent months leading to my upgrade, I wanted a phone that could also play music well, whether it be with or without head phones. I've tested it out, and so far I am very pleased with the sound. Now, it ain't no Bose speaker, but for a cell phone, it's actually quite nice. It has a fair amount of clarity to it, such that I'm impressed with it.] [3) I just needed a new phone. Pretty self-explanatory, no?] So far, it has far surpassed my expectations. The only (small) issue I have with the phone is its battery life. You pretty much have to charge it every night. But then again, I am very much used to doing that already with my previous phones. So why stop now, right? Plus, with Lithium Ion batteries, you really should charge them every night. It's actually better for them. Anyways, overall, I highly recommend this phone to anyone looking to upgrade.Read full review

Great starter phone, but does have its quirks...
I bought this phone because I needed an actual phone (NEVER try to make an iPod touch work as an iPhone... It won't) and I wanted an Android. It's one of the earlier models, but it runs Stock Jelly Bean 4.1.1 BEAUTIFULLY.
One of the issues I have with the phone (and it COULD be just this particular phone... Not the entire Google Nexus S line) is that the function keys sometimes will not respond.
Another issue is the battery charging. This particular phone line only charges to 94%-97%, depending on how much you want to play with it. If you charge it overnight, you will only be at 94% in the morning. If you charge it through computer USB technology, you can get it to 97% by unplugging and replugging the USB wire.
There is NO SD card capabilities on this phone, so the 16 GB is all the storage you will have... and only 1 GB of that is internal. So, you will need to watch your app sizes and move what you can to USB storage.
Overall though, it's a great starter phone for those who are new to the Android OS platform.Read full review

With a few tweaks this makes a great phone for power users.
I originally purchased a HTC ChaCha for my intro to the Android world, but the phone as great as it was was severely limiting for this power user. I decided next I would I'd go all out and buy the best phone I could get for the money. After a month of research here is where I ended up. It's true this phone is awesomely expensive but if you do your research (and are willing to pitch in a bit more) you can find some great deals for close to $150 - $200. This is an awesome phone which is enough said in general and now for the particulars.
At 1 Ghz this phone runs pretty damn fast which is only helped by the 1gb memory and 16gb internal storage. One of the biggest drawbacks is that there is no SD card slot on this. Another drawback is the battery life. But that can be resolved by ordering an extended life battery for around $20. You figure after spending $200 the extra $20 is next to nothing. Nice thing about this is I can get alot online through data, so storage for music or videos isn't as much of a problem since I store less and stream more.
The 3G is excellent. People want to go on and on about 4G but guess what I had it. It's only good if it has flawless coverage and it's not throttled down to EDGE (2.5G) speeds. Both of which happen under 4G when you reach a maximum. Certain providers like Straightalk will provide you with unlimited full speed... but as I'm begining to learn their coverage isn't as great as they lead people to believe. So the 4G users loss is 3Gs gain. 3G users on Tmobile, AT&T, and Verizon are reportin full un-throttled 3G. I'm experiencing this now and while it's not as fast as 4G can get not being throttled every 5 minutes means websites load with a good consistency. Downloading a few megabytes in less then 4 minutes is not bad on a 3G connection.Read full review
