Compared – Samsung Galaxy S II Vs Google Nexus S [Features & Review]

Both Google and Samsung give equal competition to each other when it comes to mobiles, but both of them never forget their off-field friendship. Samsung was the one who engineered Google Nexus in its Korean factories. But  at that time I don’t think that Samsung would have not known that one day Google Nexus S will give Samsung Galaxy S II equal competition.

Check out the Features & Specifications of both the phones individually:

Looks & Style

Both the phone Samsung Galaxy S II and Google Nexus S are sizzling but I think the extra round corners of Google Nexus S gives it an edge over Samsung Galaxy S II.Both the phones look cool, but the Graphical User Interface ( GUI ) of Samsung Galaxy S II is a bit better than that of Google Nexus S.GUI of a phone means how friendly the operating system of a particular phone is which implies the friendly ,the better it is.

Operating System

I think Operating System is the main thing which cannot be overlooked by anyone. OS is like the core ingredient of any mobile. Samsung Galaxy S II comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and Google Nexus S is embedded with Android 2.2 but you can upgrade it to 2.3.3 which is really good , you can also upgrade your Samsung Galaxy S II upto the same version.

Leader of Operating System: Tie

Storage Capacity

Storage is the thing which can be regarded as the brain of the phone which stores each and every data of your mobile,without any storage capacity you will not be able to take any advantage of your mobile so storage capacity should be upto at least 4 GB nowadays. Samsung Galaxy S II will give you the storage capacity of 32GB while Google Nexus S comes with only 16 GB and that too cannot be upgraded!

Leader of Storage: Samsung Galaxy S II


Processor is what defines how much speed your phone will give you so the more, the better it is. Samsung Galaxy S is powered with 1GHz Dual-core Exynos processor while the Google Nexus S is powered with single core ARM Cortex A8 ‘Hummingbird’, rated at 1GHz.

Leader of Processor: Samsung Galaxy S II


Camera is the eye of a mobile phone.Nowadays ,mobiles without camera are regarded as blind phones! and I don’t think anyone would like to hear someone calling is phone blind!Camera quality of both the phones is really good.Sasmung Galaxy S II comes with 8 MP, 3264×2448 pixels, camera and that too with autofocus and LED flash but on the other hand Google Nexus S comes with 5 MP, 2560 x 1920 pixels,  camera with autofocus and LED flash.

Leader of Camera : Samsung Galaxy S II


Connectivity matters a lot because this is the feature which specifies the way you will connect to other phones.Samsung Galaxy S II supports Wi-Fi,2G and 3G while Google Nexus S supports the same – Wi-Fi,2G and 3G.

Leader of Connectivity : Tie


Price is what matters the most because price is the one which will decide which phone you will buy. So the price of Samsung Galaxy S II is Rs.19,880 which is quite less than that of the Google Nexus S which is placed at the price of Rs.24,995!

Leader of Price: Samsung Galaxy S II

Final Verdict

After analyzing each and every feature of both the phone I would like to tell you, that Samsung Galaxy S II has won this battle of phones but the difference is not too large, Google Nexus S can easily overcome this gap with time. I took this decision because in maximum and important fields Samsung Galaxy S II was far better than the Google Nexus S which was suffering to stand its ground!
