One of the potentially biggest plus points for the Nexus S is its battery life. I say potentially because I have to qualify that it's not fully tested.
But based on about half a day of frequent browsing, reading and sending e-mail on the device, the battery life dipped less than 20 per cent.
From my experience with other similar smartphones, use would have dipped by at least 30 per cent.
The Nexus S is priced at $828, which came as a small, pleasant surprise. I thought it would be closer to the $1,000 mark.
While Nexus S is not a standout, it is still a notable competitor in the smartphone market.
