Verdict

By
At Rs. 29,590, the Nexus S is slightly overpriced in a price segment that is becoming ever increasingly populous and competitive. While we appreciate our first look at a pure Android system with Gingerbread, the device itself was underwhelming for a number of small reasons that just pile up, and detract from the overall experience. It's not a bad phone by any stretch of the imagination, but as it stands, the Nexus S didn't quite bowl us over.
