Phone Review » Nexus S » Ugly, Buggy, Slow

The Nexus S is the new Google Android phone. It is sold exclusively by Best Buy in the U.S. for the T-Mobile network.

This is my personal review of the Nexus S with pros and cons. I will update this page as I learn more.

I'm especially interested in the Nexus S because it is Google's premium phone and helps set the bar for developers and handset makers, so this review will emphasize things that I see as notably different from other premium Android phones.

Pros

Pure Android Gingerbread

New hardware

Cons

Ugly in several ways

Buggy in several ways

Slow in several ways

Conclusion

The Nexus S feels half-baked or rushed to launch. It's not an iPhone-killer, and in my opinion it's not a must-have phone unless you absolutely need pure Android Gingerbread or the Near Field chip.
