Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

Apart from adept and advanced call management, I'd additionally like my smartphone to be able to Document Viewer and much more, just like the Samsung Google Nexus S. It is meaningless fidgeting with a screen that poses real difficulty both while watching videos and typing on the cramped keyboard, the portability that is offered by the smaller screen seems futile against the little value it bids with respect to functio. With my kinda usage and lifestyle neither the battery will last me decent hours, nor have the flexibility to I provide it with charging as and when needed. Not an hour goes by without my phone ringing, that's why I always opt for something like the Samsung Google Nexus S that has all the advanced boasts of to ease the communication. Bluetooth file sharing is really not of much use to me, but this feature is really handy when it comes to hands-free calling. Even if my travel routes, both business and pleasure, is very much known to me I'd still like the reassurance from the GPS navigation on my phone.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

The size of the Samsung Google Nexus S makes it extremely portable, but with its tiny and cramped keypad it's really not of much use to me. I never let a special occasion pass by without recording it, right from cake compromising to dinner parties; and the Samsung Google Nexus S with good recording boasts of is really recommended for me. I don't like the camera in particular, and I won't be buying the Samsung Google Nexus S, however good the other features might be.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

Although the display looks particularly pleasing, the tiny screen size is too awkward to please the gamer or the ardent bookworm in me. Well, the frequency never bothered me so much with reading, but gaming on this device is a nightmare. I have the flexibility to download and save all my cool and graphic-heavy games with the 16 GB internal storage of this smartphone and still have enough room for my ebooks and apps. I have the flexibility to at the least have a cool graphic session of 3-4 hours without the battery warning; although after 4 hours I do have to seek charging.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The 4 inches display of the Samsung Google Nexus S was the first thing that grabbed my attention. I love texting and all my friends too prefer texting over talking, so I find the screen size of the Samsung Google Nexus S is very cramped. The Yes, 5 MP camera resolution is not that cool. You can easily go for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I love clicking pictures with my smartphone and this one doesn't seem up for it. For me, a smartphone with secondary camera means loads of selifes. Me and my friends are a huge followers of the selfie and groupie trend, we hardly stop clicking 'em. It's sometimes demanding to click selfies and groupies with the main camera, so always go for smartphones with good secondary camera. My smartphone should be doing more than messaging, browsing and emails and that too simultaneously. I feel 2G networks are not reliable when it comes to this. I can now travel to almost any new place or location with the built-in GPS and it is particularly pleasing help during various emergencies, traffic updates or navigation issues. I don't worry charging when I have the flexibility to charge my phone with the laptop; I have the flexibility to even transfer files with this. I can't be choosing between which media files to keep and which ones to delete, due to internal storage as low as 16 GB. It's irritating to delete favourite files from my smartphone due to memory issues, so I always select larger internal storage.
