Samsung Google Nexus S I9023 Review

The Samsung Google Nexus S I9023 was released in December 2010 and was the first Android phone to run Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It was also the first Nexus phone, a line of devices co-developed by Google and various manufacturers to showcase the latest Android features and updates.


The Nexus S has a 4-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 480x800 pixels. This display is sharp and colorful, and it is also very bright, making it easy to see even in direct sunlight. The Nexus S also has a curved design, which makes it comfortable to hold in the hand.


The Nexus S has a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera. The rear camera can take decent photos in good lighting conditions, but it struggles in low light. The front-facing camera is good enough for video calls, but it is not great for taking selfies.


The Nexus S is powered by a 1GHz Hummingbird processor and 512MB of RAM. This hardware is not particularly powerful by today's standards, but it is still capable of running most Android apps smoothly. The Nexus S also has a good gaming performance, and it can handle most casual games without any problems.

Battery life

The Nexus S has a 1500mAh battery. This battery life is not great by today's standards, but it is still enough to get you through a day of moderate usage on a single charge. If you are a heavy user, you may need to charge your Nexus S more than once a day.

Who should buy it?

The Nexus S is a good choice for people who want a pure Android experience and timely software updates. It is also a good choice for people who are looking for a phone with a sharp and colorful display. However, the Nexus S is not a good choice for people who need a phone with a great camera or long battery life.

Overall, the Samsung Google Nexus S I9023 is a good phone for the price. It has a sharp and colorful display, a curved design, and a pure Android experience. However, it has an average camera and battery life.
