I like the Samsung Nexus S, mostly because of Android OS 2.3/Gingerbread, the responsive nature of the device -- I hate waiting for apps to open -- and the nice camera.
It's not perfect, though. While this smartphone generally performed well and I didn't see any of the glitches that have plagued other users, I'm extremely disappointed with the voice quality of the device when I'm on phone calls.
Of course it's important to have a great email and web browsing experience, and there are times when you have a few spare minutes to play games or watch a video on YouTube, and it's great that our phone can do all of those things. But they should first of all be really good phones, and the Nexus S doesn't live up to my standards in that regard. It is possible that the issues I experienced are all due to the T-Mobile network in my area, but that is impossible to know for sure.
If you have strong T-Mobile coverage in your area, or are planning to use the Nexus S with another GSM carrier such as AT&T, it deserves a closer look because it performed well in all other respects.
