Criteria Comments Rating
  • Reception and call quality No comments great!
  • Display Living in Europe I only got the SLCD. Additionally, it hat dead pixels (I tested 3 Nexus', every single one had at least one dead or stuck pixel). so-so
  • Battery life Quite good, but not as good as the iPhone. But you make it through the day under heavy use. good
  • Camera No comments
  • Ease of use Android is still geeky. But I like that. good
  • Design and form factor Unique look. great!
  • Portability (size / weight) I tend to say 4" is too big. so-so
  • Media support No comments so-so
  • Durability Although being completely made of plastic, I think it could last a good while. good
  • Ecosystem (apps, accessories, etc.) Huge amount of Apps in the market. But - and this is Androids biggest problem - most of them are ugly and not intuitive. Counter-example: new Google Docs App. so-so
Detailed review
Seems I was unlucky, getting three Nexus S with every one having inacceptable issues. Dead pixels, lose frame (the one that covers the display), etc.
