Google Nexus S Vs T-Mobile G2 Review

Google Nexus S

It’s good to see the Nexus S actually has a lot of competitors that are fully ready to exhibit all its specification. you might think that it sounds unfair, for the T-Mobile G2 was released on October, while the Nexus S will be available on stores next December 16, but both phones are designed as the members of Android top line. so, let’s just take a look at what both offer to consumers.

Connectivity:Let’s just compare what each phone offers for the connectivity. the Nexus S comes with 3G HSDPA at 7.2 Mbps and HSUPA at 5.76 Mbps. There’s also WiFi 802.11 b/g/n with DLNA, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP and microUSB 2.0. on the other side, the G2 sports 3G HSDPA at 14.4 Mbps and HSUPA at 2 Mbps. the device offers the exact same WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, but lacks of DLNA support. Next, the rest of the features are totally the same with Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP and microUSB 2.0.

Size & Weight:The Nexus measures 123.9 x 63 x 10.9 mm and weighs in at 129 g, while the G2 measures 119.4 x 61 x 15.2 mm and weighs in at 184.3 g. you can just see the picture of both phones, and then decide which one you need to buy. Size and weight seriously do matter when it comes to get an ergonomic phone that is handy to hold. you can choose T-mobile G2 if looking for smartphone with  slide out physical QWERTY form. Alternatively, for those of you who love to own a phone with more sophisticated design, Nexus S with full-touchscreen display could be more beneficial.

Camera:The Nexus S offers a complete package of multimedia with its 5-megapixel autofocus camera, equipped with LED flash and sports 2560 x 1920 pixels. the camera also features geo-tagging and touch-focus, and the happiest part is that it comes with WVGA front-facing camera allows you to make a videocall chat.

The G2 offers its own autofocus camera with 5-megapixel and 2592 x 1944 pixels of resolution and LED flash. the feature to support the primary tools is just geo-tagging. in addition, the device has no secondary camera to help you make that videocall. however, you would still find sort of similarity as both are able to make a high definition video recording at 720p.

Display:Nexus S has Super Amoled display like the Galaxy S display, one of the best display on the market. and now we face a hot battle between the Nexus S and G2, which it is obvious to see the winner on the display stage. the 4.0 inches screen of Nexus S offers super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 16M colors and sports 480 x 800 pixels resolution. on the other side, the G2 only gives us TFT capacitive touchscreen technology with 16M colors. it delivers 480 x 800 pixels resolution, though, but it measures 3.7 inches only.

Performance:The android 2.3 (Gingerbread) that is sported on the Nexus S will take its very important role in each smartphone comparison conducted. How can we say so? It’s all obvious that the latest Android OS is capable of running faster than its predecessor Android Froyo. Moreover, the Nexus S is built with the ARM Cortex A8 that runs at 1GHz processor. the G2 will not be able to beat the counterpart, for the device only has the Qualcomm MSM 7230 800 MHz processor and the operating system is still stuck on the Android 2.2 (Froyo).

Storage:The Nexus S has called a lot of complaints among reviewers because of the inexistence of the external memory on the device. the internal storage supports 16GB capacity and 512MB RAM, though. and, this can be a good opportunity for the G2 to win the battle, for the device comes with microSD slot which is expandable up to 32GB with 8 GB card included. the internal memory itself is 4GB only.

Battery life:The Nexus S comes with Li-Ion 1500 mAh that can be pushed up to 428 hours of standby time and 6 hours and 40 minutes of talk time. on the other hand, the G2 would be able to deliver 430 hours of standby time and 6 hours and 40 minutes of talk time using the Li_Ion 1300 mAh.

Conclusion:The Nexus S wins everything, while the G2 still keeps its superiority on the external memory sight only. All in all, the Nexus S comes out to be a winner because of its high performance and the support of the Gingerbread. There are also some great improvements within the device which can be sort of big factor to hit the G2 such as the existence of NFC chip.
