@Flipkart: You're doing a great job! and as per your service goes.. its just unbeatable. I ordered my nexy ( am so much in love with this phone I've nick-named it as nexy!!) on saturday evening and monday evening I have it. Pure AWESOMENESS!!

At 20k this is the best phone money can buy. Phone's display is too good, texts look clear and very crisp. After using for an hour it got heated up and then i found out its the NFC (near field communication) causing the problem. So i switched off NFC and everything was back to normal. Supplied headphones are also usable and i found the quality to be above average. Image quality is good too. Google also launched OTA for android 2.3.4 - this update fixes some security issue and will provide support for video calls on gtalk. So thats all for now and am sure that i am gonna have some good time with nexy;)

P.S. @LETSBUY: You lost me today. I am done with you guys and your pathetic services.

it is a great phone

It is a great phone had i got it for 25K
1)Super Clear LCD is equally good except for brand name and brings down the price for Indian consumer
2)Look and specially the curved screen make it look better
3)Display is far better than any many xperias and optimuses and N7/8s
4)Google NFC comes with it but i dont find its manu uses in India

With every one getting an iphone this new hardware can bring jealousy in your gadget loving friends
There is a new Nexus S 4G but in India it is of no use and there is time before it launches in India

Do not update to android 2.3.2 from 2.3.1

I got the Nexus S from the UK Two months ago. This phone is a head on match with an iPhone. It worked flawlessly until I upgraded to the required update, i.e. the 2.3.2 from the pre-installed 2.3.1 . The OS version - 2.3.2, is the worst update that google has produced. This is because my phone would go off by itself and to restart it the battery had to be removed and re-inserted. Then came the bad morning when I woke up and checked my phone, it was off. I did the same battery thing again and then it would not switch on completely, which means it would only come on to the point where the google logo appears on booting and then freeze on the google logo point. Then I checked a few blogs where a google person said that it was mistake on their part and the On the Air (OTA) update of the OS 2.3.3 version is due soon. The phone cannot even be restored from the boot menu, after holding the volume up key and the power button simultaneously. It is not samsungs fault at all, but solely google's.

Great Price, Excellent Service & A Wonderful Mobile.

Firstly I am delighted, that I find Flipkart to be India's equivalent of Amazon. The ordering process on Flipkart was easy, multiple choices of payments, prompt notifications and well packed quick, timely delivery. I ordered the mobile on Wednesday late night and the mobile was delivered on Friday. Prompt email & sms notification on order status were sent. In all delighted with a good service from FLIPKART. I hope to see more choice of electronics items like WiFi routers, NAS storages, HDDs among others to be made available on Flipkart.

A good deal of detailed review is available on the web about the Google Nexus S - so I am not going to repeat the same here, but a short update. The super clear LCD display is a joy to use couple with a gorgeous large 4" display area. Good battery life. Image quality from the camera is good. Its a joy to use the web browser on a large screen. As others have pointed out in the reviews on this page, absence of a SD card slot is not a negative thing about this phone, but do remember that the mobile has a large 16GB inbuilt memory which is more than sufficient. WiFi, 3G data connection, WiFi hotspot all works reliably. I primarily picked this mobile as the Nexus S has a stock Android Gingerbread on it. No OEM customisations. I was able to update it to Android 2.3.4. In all an excellent feature packed mobile for the current price of Rs 19.999K. Its an excellent buy, recommended for all Android fans.

Inputs to Flipkart: ( wishlist I would like to see )
After ordering an item (Eg: say a mobile) and placing it into a cart, it would be good to have a feature whereby it takes the user to a page where related items like accessories for the Mobile purchased can be recommended to the user/buyer. Also when new mobiles get added to you site, it would be good to add corresponding accessories like cases & screen protectors for the same.

the best

I brought it for 20k from flipcart.
It's really a very good phone. The phone is feature proof (for android users) as it comes with NFC, VGA front cam and the latest version of android. I just upgraded it to 2.3.4 and is doing well. As this phone is a product of google i think we get an opportunity to upgrade to all the new versions of android to be coming in new days (like honeycomb). The build quality is more than average. 480*800 resolution screen really does good. 1GHz Hummingbird processor (ARM cortex A8 licensed) is getting widely recognized in the mobile processor industry. Whats most impressing me is that the google maps are loaded very fast even compared to HTC desire hd which has 1ghz proc and 768mb ram. The GPU does handle the graphics nicely. This phone has lots to talk about. I rate it 9/10.

As everybody was saying that the google just lost the race with its debut release "nexus one" (Manufactured and distributed from HTC) , "nexus s" (Manufacturer and distributor samsung) made the ,big daddy of internet, google get back into the race.

Unbeatable phone at an unbeatable price..

I've been putting off this review for a while.

First off, let me say that Flipkart is the best thing that happened to India in the online merchant space. I've been ordering books since Flipkart started its operations. I've found that not only does Flipkart offer better prices than most retailers (online and brick & mortar), but also their service is par none.

Now to the phone part. I am an avid reader and I research the hell out of any product I buy. I must have read a thousand reviews and watched a ton of videos before I decided to buy this piece of gem. The Google Nexus S trumps every Android phone out there. Some people lament the lack of SAMOLED screen (in the Indian version) and lack of memory expansion. But the SuperLCD is more than enough in most cases and is much better in some light conditions than the SAMOLED. With the advent of the cloud storage and 3G services in India I believe 16GB of memory is more than enough storage. If you have more applications installed than that could fit on 16GB then you probably need a netbook or a laptop. The biggest selling point for the Nexus S is the pure Android experience. No customized skins and no waiting for OEMs to update the newer versions of Android. This means you are always 3-4 months ahead of the other Android phones in terms of OS updates. For developer that is just godsend. If you need more reasons to buy this there are a ton of review and videos that justify buying this phone.

As for Flipkart, kudos for being the first to list this phone for such a low price. And more kudos for the fantastic service. I received the phone within 3 days as promised at the time of ordering. The packing was just right and actual phone came in a sealed box.

Great buy @ 20K

I switched from Nokia N97 to Nexus S, it has been one of the best buying decisions I have ever made after the horrible experience with Nokia.

Few good things about the phone:
1) Nexus S with pure android experience is always up to date with the latest android version.
2) Video chat on fring, gtalk, fring or tango is smooth.
3) With flash player support on android gingerbread, watching videos/movies online is as easy as it can get.
4) I have compared SLCD with AMOLED, the latter has a bluish tinge and looks unreal. SLCD is great, brightness can be set to auto mode to have high visibility even under under sunlight.
5) Touch is topnotch
6) Android keyboard is as good as physical querty phone keyboards.

Of course there are few shortcomings which are nice to have features:
1) No Video Out to connect with TV
2) No FM receiver
3) Speakers should have a higher max volume
4) No sd card slot for extended storage, although 16 GB internal memory if good enough
5) No phone video calls through 3G (though it supports video chat through front camera)

Overall a nice buy at 20K. I have been using this phone for a month now and the experience is pretty good :)

Excellent phone

I have been using this phone for more than a week. Its the best in this price range. If u r planning to buy a new phone than go with the Nexus S, it wont disappoint you.
* Pure Android experience

* Time to time updates by Google, comes with gingerbread 2.3.3 and up-gradable to 2.3.4(the latest version)

* Super clear LCD display

* 26-27 hrs of battery backup (in my case) with a lots of gaming and 3g enabled

* video calling over the internet with Google Talk.

* camera quality is nice. Here's a picture i have taken for sample
just copy paste the above link in your address bar

* nice sound quality, comes with in-ear type headphones.

* the back plastic catches scratches very quickly

* No notification LED

* Camera do not have panorama mode, though you can get the app from market but that doesn't works good.

* cannot record 720p video

Nice phone in 20k

I bought Nexus s from flipkart their service is very nice.Now lets talk about the handset it is a nice phone .Having all the features.There are some cons of it which i had heard before buying it . I searched on the internet and found some solutions for those problems.Now my phone is working very fine.Im really happy to own my Nexus S.

Problems & Solutions:-
1)low battry backup:-Use Power Max by volt up it will help to increase battry life.
2)Camera Zoom:-There is no zoom in the company installed camera app but we can use VIGNETTE app to take some good pics it is a good software for shooting pics.
3)Wi-Fi:-Actually there is no solution for this as it is not a problem it is a feature to save battery life.But we can make it stay connected to the wi-fi when charging without getting disconnected.It can be done in settings>applications>development>stay awake.

As much i have used this phone i have faced these problems .Please share if someone have any other problem...!!

nexus s: go 4 it

this was the first time i ordered anything other than a book in flipkart. as usual delivery was prompt and the package was well secured. i only wish flipkart gives options on choosing accessories -- screenguard, casing (imho. amzer better than molife), pouch, bluetooth headset etc. also, it would be a useful time saver if mobile insurance is an optional part of the purchase (imagine going to a new india assurance office on a week day). [sorry flipkart: customers keep asking for more from ppl who already offer grt service!]

abt the phone: the hardware specs are high-end and won't be obsolete in a hurry. this phone (just as any other android fone) is community supported. anything google has given on this phone is matched or bettered by the free-spirited android developer community. (jst chk the net reg the community developed features for nexus 1.)

spend some time exploring the options available on the net and you could end up having a fone that wud make others go green!!! linux users will find all this customization business very familiar (non-linux users catch yr linux friends.) if u find it time consuming, jst remember: the effort is well worth it.

even if you don't want to take any risk/pain customizing, the fone already looks and feels good and there are tons of apps in the android market place (many free) to explore with this fone. thanx to google updates, u always get the 1st updates (jst take a look around and u'll find many r still launching 2.2, wen this fone is already 2.3.4!). if other grt fones r like high end cars, this one is like a made-to-order high-end car. go for it and won't be disappointed.

p.s. cribs like this fone doesn't supprt sd card; only 5mp camera; no hd video recording; plastic body; no fm radio are strictly minor and not deal-breakers.
