I won’t buy the Nexus S

Launching in the US last week, and finally making a tardy appearance in the UK today, we already know that the Google Nexus S is a decent phone. In fact, we even called it the best Android handset on the market today in our review, and considering the strength of the competition right now, that's an admirable place to be. Yet, despite having been using a Nexus S review unit for some time now, and having gotten on with the Android 2.3 smartphone well, I won't be picking one up today. Let me tell you why.

Google Nexus S arrives in UK: £430 SIM-free or free on contract

The Google Nexus S has gone on sale in the UK today, with the Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone available to order online as well as in "key" Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy stores. Priced at £429.99 SIM-free - after a price-cut this weekend - or free with a new, £30 per month agreement, the Nexus S has a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, NFC and a 5-megapixel camera, and, as we suggested in our full review, may well be the best Android device on the market today.

Nexus S Teardown

Nexus S Teardown

Oh those folks at iFixit, they're so wild in their need to take everything apart. Come with me and see their unscrewing and note with me how they find Nexus S to be more of a gimmick than a feature-filled device. Ruh roh. Did they say gimmick? They sure did. They note first and foremost the fact that it's got a curved display and is running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, saying basically that these shouldn't be enough to convince someone to purchase the brand new phone.
