2 out of 5 eggsNexus S

Pros: This is an awesome phone, especially with the Android 4.0 upgrade and the super Amoled screen that the U.S. version has. However, the phone that Newegg sells, is the cheaper European version. It has an inferior LCD screen.

Cons: This is not the U.S. version with the Super Amoled screen. It is the cheaper European version with an inferior display.

Other Thoughts: I am a loyal Newegg customer. However, if I had bought this phone from Newegg, I would have been very unhappy Newegg customer. In my view, Newegg does a terrible job describing this phone. They should explicitly state that this is not the US version and that this phone has not a Super Amoled screen. Since Newegg is a US company, a reasonable assumption is that they sell US versions of products. If they they sell cheaper foreign versions or knock-offs, they should make this very clear and explicit.

In addition, Samsung does a horrible job naming their products. They sell two very different phones under the same name. Unless one does careful research with regard to obscure product identifiers, there is way to tell. This is deceptive marketing..

4 out of 5 eggsPure Google Phone (just note this phone has Super Clear LCD, not Super AMOLED)

Pros: - Pure Android OS that is comparable to iOS (phone received an OTA update to 4.0.3 on 12/13/11)
- Decent battery life (at least a full day with moderate usage to include voice, text and data)
- Light weight, but solid device.

Cons: - Older hardware (single core CPU)
- Does not have Super AMOLED (compared to I9020)
- Does not have micro SD slot for extra storage space
- Product provided by PDAGIANT (terrible support / RMA process based on prior experience that I have had with company)
- Limited accessories for phone

Other Thoughts: Purchased the Nexus S (GT-I9020T) last year from a local retail store, been very pleased with the performance (some might consider the hardware dated). Capable of handling numerous tasks and survived its fair share of drops / abuse with minimal signs of wear. True "Google" phone free of bloated apps or skins (that carriers usually add to phones), plus it was the first phone to receive the "Ice Cream Sandwich" Android update after the new Galaxy Nexus phone was release.

Had a issue with the micro SD port on phone (probably caused by user error), but Samsung provided excellent support and quickly repaired the phone. Cannot say the same for PDAGIANT and my experience with trying to get a HTC myTouch 3G (purchased from Newegg) repaired.

Owned other brands to include Nokia, HTC and Motorola. This phone is by far my favorite (simple and very capable Android device). Dependable device that provides clear calls, strong cell signal, responsive OS and fast data speeds (using T-Mobile).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat deal for an unlocked phone!

Pros: If your in the market for a good unlocked phone without carrier contract restrictions, this is an excellent price for an awesome phone. The successor is out now, but this still is one of the best phones for a pure vanilla android experience. I've been using android for a year now and I love it, best mobile OS out there IMO

Cons: The hardware is a bit dated at this point. Also there is no SD slot, but honestly 16GB is more than you'll ever need for a phone, unless you're wanting to use it for an MP3 player too.

Other Thoughts: if your wanting a new contract phone, you might want to look into the Galaxy Nexus, or another high end android phone from HTC, Samsung, or Motorola. But if you're wanting a good android phone without a contract, this is a good deal.
