Google Nexus S 2
Made in partnership with Samsung, the Nexus S does not differ much from its predecessor. Indeed, technically speaking, the differences are small between the two Google branded smartphones. We find the same processor running at 1 GHz in both cases. However, the processor Qualcomm QSD 8250 was abandoned for the ARM Cortex-A8 (Hummingbird) from Samsung. In terms of RAM, there are still 512 MB For cons like the iPhone, the Nexus has chosen to overlook the MicroSD slot. It was abandoned in favor of an internal memory of 16 GB At the display, the smartphone is sold out, thanks to the graphics card PowerVR SGX540 (compatible Open GL ES 2.0), which gives it a power gain at the games, compared to its predecessor.

Grip and good design
At first glance, it is difficult to ignore the fact that Samsung was behind the design of this phone. We find the concept PNG (Plastic / Black / Glossy) fond as the Korean manufacturer. Combined with its curves, this concept gives the Nexus S a sober and elegant design at a time. However, mobile users in search of originality and material “high end” will be disappointed. Despite this, the finish of the phone is correct. As for the ergonomics of the phone, slightly curved back of the smartphone provides good grip.

The screen of the Nexus S, one of its greatest assets
One of the most important interest of the manufacturer Samsung is its display technologies. Indeed, the Nexus S, there is a Super AMOLED screen of 4.0 inches with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels adorned with a protective Oleophobic. The colors offered are quite vivid, especially when watching videos in HD or Full HD. However, the difference is less visible while watching live TV or even videos in low quality. Unfortunately, this screen is very sensitive to fingerprints. However, these traces are visible once the unit is in standby mode. So to take advantage of the screen to its fair value, it is advisable to clean it regularly.

Like the Samsung S Galaxy, the Nexus S is a very responsive smartphone. The menu navigation is done with good fluidity. However, some might stumble on the actions scroll “up-down” or “left-right”, especially because of the low sensitivity of the touch screen. For some, this prevents accidental movement while browsing the web, while another may annoyed not to see all their movements interpreted as intended. The responsiveness of the phone is also reflected in the navigation on the net. The keys on the keyboard have been reviewed and are now slightly less frequent, reducing typing errors.

Connectivity side, the Nexus S benefits from the range required on a device like this. Found including 3G/3G, Wi-Fi (Wi-Fi 802.11 n / b / g), Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR and it also benefits from the NFC, the spearhead of payments that is developing wireless Google. This phone is also compatible with the SIP protocol, which ensures the passage of such calls via Internet (VoIP). As for the camera, the smartphone loads a 5 megapixel camera with auto focus and incorporates an LED flash. The AFN also offers several capture modes. The media player is, in turn, supports video formats H.264, H.263, MPEG4 and audio formats generic, such as MP3 and WAV.
