'And its straight Google experience will appeal to Android purists. '
'With features like a curved, WVGA Super AMOLED touchscreen display, a 5 megapixel camera with flash, and a first ever (for Android) NFC wireless tag reader, the Nexus S has more than just a new OS to brag about. '
'At the bottom of the phone there's a full optical trackpad, which makes a change from the Terminator eye on the HTC Legend and Desire, and is more useful for when trying to scroll through text, and it's flanked by the other standard Android keys for navigation. '
'The overall result is a phone that looks and feels exceptionally well made.'
'You get a pixel density of 252ppi, and it is both bright and vibrant, only falling short of the Samsung Galaxy S, whose AMOLED display trumps its rivals when it comes to serving up deep blacks and striking colours. '
'the key spacing seems large and the buttons big (well, big enough).'
'While the phone feels a bit heavy in the hand at 165g (5.8 ounces), it doesn't feel as bulky in your pocket due to its smooth rounded edges.'
'clean, bright interface'
'Available for $199 on AT&T, we like the idea of a phone with strong media capabilities, a kickstand for watching movies and TV, and a big speaker that can fill a small room with Zune tunes. '
'The HTC Surround also has a dedicated audio chip for its two speakers, and what we were left with was one of the best sound performances we've ever experienced on a phone—calling and blasting the Beastie Boys in public. '
'The thickness is less of an issue than we anticipated as well.'
'The 624MHz processor lags behind the circa 1GHz chips seen in its rivals, internal memory is limited to 4GB and video recording is just VGA at 24fps, when 720p HD has become the new smartphone minimum. '
