Hands-On: HTC EVO 3D, Samsung Nexus S 4G
Sprint had the Samsung Nexus S 4G on hand at CTIA, as well, and we spent a few moments playing with it.
Visually, it is no different at all from the original Nexus S. It has the exact same shape, design, size, button placement, and software as the version that's available for T-Mobile. The only change is within — it has CDMA and WiMax radios inside rather than HSPA+.

The 4-inch Super AMOLED display looks great, as have all the Super AMOLEDs from Samsung. The Nexus S 4G is thin, light, and doesn't weigh all that much. I still dislike the overall sense of "plastic-ness" that I get when I hold it. (This is the same as all the Galaxy S phones).
The Android 2.3 Gingerbread user interface is great because Sprint hasn't messed with it at all. it's a full "Google Experience" phone, and has absolutely zero bloatware on board (including even Sprint's ever-present Football and Nascar apps).
It's a fine little phone for Sprint, and will surely be a good seller. Phone Scoop reviewed the T-Mobile variant of the Nexus S back in December if you're interested in a full look at all its features.
