3) Samsung Nexus S:

Coming in at number 3 in our android top phones list is Samsung’s Google phone dubbed the Nexus S. Shockingly Samsung left out a couple of key features that made its Galaxy S phone so successful and adding a few that will definitely grab your attention ( NFC- Near fields communication- chip). The phone although not revolutionary in its hardware, scores big points in software with its “pure Google experience”. If you want the latest version of android updated first, then go for this beast. Strong specs combined with pure android make it one of the best buys.

  • 512MB of RAM and 16GB internal storage (no micro sd card).
  • 4” WVGA SuperAMOLED screen.
  • 5 MP camera rear facing and 1.3 MP front facing camera

  • Gyroscope, Accelerometer, GPS, digital compass, NFC.
  • WiFi b/g/n bluetooth 3.0
