Need a new android phone

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've been looking at the Samsung Nexus S, I have a Moto Cliq that's pretty much failed me.

What do you think about the Nexus S?

The reviews tend to smile on the Nexus S. It's a massively powerful phone, easily outperforming the Desire HD or Samsung Galaxy S.

Something I've noticed is that, the moment you want to do something out of the ordinary with the Nexus S, it gives problems. Most bug-fixes I see on the market are fixes for the Nexus, and rooting etc is apparently tricky.

Not a bad choice though. Google for reviews and comparisons - they'll expose any weaknesses of the phone and you can make an educated choice.

Mind you dual core phones are imminent! So I would wait a little longer and see how that plays out
