    @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 a...

    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 processo...

    Best value for money

    First, Kudos to flipkart for their awesome service. The phone was delivered as promised and in an excellent safe packaging. Now on the phone, Nexus S is one of the best andriod phones (read value for money) for the price. The screen is beautiful (eventhough its not super amoled). The processing if fassst. The hardware is good including the headset. The loudspeaker output is a little difficult to catch in crowded areas but otherwise its enough. Its Android 2.3.3 immediate upgrade to 2.3.4 on s...

    4th anniversary

    This phone's out of stock (obviously), but have used it for the 4th year now, and still runs like a charm. The battery lost its juice around the three year mark, so got a replacement battery for ~Rs1200. Functions like new. Got rid of the stock Android, am running CyanogenMod CM11M12 which is built on Kitkat. Best buck spent on any electronics in my life. This review is informally written, thought it would be fun to review it 4 years later.

    Awesome Phone

    I am using this since last 2 years, no hardware issues even after i dropped for more than 10 times. Good Quality, great product. Google OS and Samsung Hardware wow what a combination, both proved that they are Giants in their respective fields. I am just waiting for this combination to launch once again.

    Its a NEXUS

    The name says it all. This was the only Nexus to be officially launched in India. It stood well by its name. It received updates till 4.1.2
    Inspite of packing a slightly older hardware compared to other android phone, this has managed to run JellyBean quite well while most of other similar android phones are still running GingerBread.
    I have used the phone for around a year and then moved onto Galaxy Nexus.

    A good google product

    Though this phone is now discontinued, I would like to say that it's a decent phone. One thing you can take pride for is that you are using a direct google product! Though manufactured by Samsung.

    Response time is above average for this phone, it may not be very fast like recent google phones. There are many bugs fixed and few introduced when my android nexus phone automatically upgraded from 2.3(Ginger bread) to 4.0 (ice-cream-sandwich) version. But that is android specific.

    I am happy wit...
