Anyone with this phone?

What's the speed you get with the speedtest app on this phone on 3G?
I regularly get 3-3.5 mbps.

Not too bad. 🙂

You guys are dumb

Use common sense now, its a GSM phone on T-Mo, itll have access to the HSPA+ and the camera is the same as the one in the other galaxy S phones so it will record 720p, and Flash support is native to android 2.2 so yes android 2.3 will definitely support it.
Great thread. "You guys are so dumb"... you should have followed that up with "I'm in 2nd grade and don't know how to express my feelings yet"
Please don't call people dumb. That's inappropriate.

...the camera is the same as the one in the other galaxy S phones so it will record 720p...

That would make sense, but for some reason it doesn't seem to be the c...
Also, no, it does not support HSPA+. It's HSPA 7.2.
Calling people dumb then posts misinformation 🙄

Isn't this same as Galaxy S?

All of the specs are the same except Gingerbread 2.3. I have the Vibrant. Hope they will release update for 2.3 but won't hold my breath. Still waiting for Froyo 2.2.
BTW, its HSPA+ not 4g. Still I do agree, With TMO and other vendors discounting the heck out of G2, it can be a far better deal. Got my G2 on Cyber Monday for free. There is not $529 plus sales tax difference between the two.

Not worth upgrading to--

--from the original Nexus One. Especially since the Nexus One will get Gingerbread.
Agreed. As a nexus one owner, this doesn't seem that big of an upgrade. heck, the droid x and evo are better phones (albeit CDMA), and I was even disappointed that Google didn't make it worthy this time.

At least there is no touch wiz

When I heard that samsung was making the next Nexus, I knew they would find a way to mess it up.

No Sd Card????
Questionable 720p????
No HSPA +????

I suppose it could be worse, they could have WIZZED on the phone and put that touchWIZ on it.

At this point, I think you would be far better off getting a G2. At least it is 4g, has 720p and an sd card reader.

Guess I will wait now to see what dual core offerings are coming soon because for me, the lack of 4g and an sd card reader are an epic fail.

No 4G, and no SD Memory?

Am I missing something on the specs? I do not see if the Nexus S has 4G and or a SD card slot.
also, did not find any Flash 10 support...
You're not missing anything.

It has no memory card slot, the HSPA tops out at 7.2 mbps (which is fast, but not HSPA+) and it does not record HD video.

The saliva

is dripping from my mouth!

Any word on the pricing for this beast?
199 two year contract and I think over 500 out of contract..Cant imagine why anyone would want to use it on ATT..the idea is appalling...
$199 - 2yr T-Mo contract
$529 - No contract

Dec 7, 2010, 12:14 PM

No "4G", no SD Memory, and no Flash 10 support?

Am I missing something on the specs? I do not see HSPA+ ("4G")specs, memory card specs or Flash 10 support specs.

I know I do! It would be nice if there was ONE AT&T compatible band ( 😡 ), but day-amn!

Dollars to doughnuts it will have Flash support. Doesn't Froyo have it?
I'm pretty sure it will have full Flash support.

No HD play back

The Nexus S only records at 720x480 not 1280x720 like the Epic 4g.
You're correct. It can play HD video, but cannot record it. Sorry for the mistake. I corrected the post. Thanks!

Dec 6, 2010, 11:12 PM

when r they releasing an at&t 3g frequency compatible version?

anyone have any idea if samsung will be releasing a at&t 3g compatible version soon? i heard this phone on at&t will have slower data speeds since it doesn't support the at&t 3g frequency.
They released an at&t version of the Nexus One....

But a T-Mobile phone will not be compatible with at&t's data network since T-Mobile and at&t operate on different frequencies

Wheres the Hspa+

Come on teen-mobile wtf why would you release the first android 2.3 device with no hspa+?

So the g2 and my touch 4 have one big advantage over google's new flagship device. 😳

Ill stick with my Epic 4g 😎
They're NOT releasing this. This is a google phone that's compatible with Tmobile. Period. Best buy is selling it on tmobile contracts, but Tmobile will NOT be offering support.

Welcome to GSM

I think I'll pass, two main reasons:

1. Samsung's recent (pseudo)handling of their GPS issues doesn't make them look that great.

2. When I bought an N1, I ended up with problems with 3G switching to Edge and back, and calls dropping. Google and T-Mobile just pointed the finger at each other about where the problem was. I was stuck in the middle with a $530 phone that didn't work as well as my old RAZR.

I absolutely LOVE Android, and still use it. It just seems that the only way to ensure good support is for the phone to come from the carrier. Hopefully that'll be the case this time.
So basically you're saying it's the carriers fault that the manufacturer came up with a phone that could not utilize the network properly when other Android phones were doing just fine at the time... 😳

cant wait

to buy this 🙂
Straight up. sounds like another exciting Galaxy phone!
Only worthy diff I see with the N1 is a bigger screen, more on-board memory. However, possibly no microsd card slot.

Frankly, doesn't seem that big of an 'upgrade' from the Nexus One.

Dec 6, 2010, 5:51 PM

unlocked will work for at&t?

does that mean it will work unlocked on the at&t carrier? does anyone know if they will release this model officially for at&t?
it should work on att edge, assuming it will be unlocked.

since they did the same stunt last time, i wouldnt be surprised if they released an ATT version like 2 months later.
It's not locked. It will work with ATT out of the box. Just EDGE only

microSD card

Yes it has 16GB onboard, but does it have a microSD slot? I didn't see it mentioned on the website.

Dec 6, 2010, 11:37 AM

does it come with FREE gift? Fake GPS?

if Samsung cant fix the GPS in Galaxy S, expect this one to be another samsung GARBAGE!
I dont think that google would let their next phone launch with a messed up gps....which is the only issue with the galexy s line.
Google is doing great with Andriod. Samsung is doing great with Galaxy S. Don;t know what the big deal is. It's definitely NOT garbage!
