S-AMOLED screen, speed, NFC tag ready, use Android
can play x264 800x480 film perfecly
not dual core - cannot film in 720p - FM radio and transmitter not active - no del on the front to show message, voicemail or anything else like the Nexus one.
A really Great phone, I bought it from my cell phone provider, videotron, with use the same AWS network than mobilicity.
Faster than my previous Nexus one. The Super Amoled Screen is incredible. I can't imagine better picture quality. 800x480 movies look really great on the display. contrast are amazing.
It has am NFC tag system so we will eventually be able to use it to pay with it.
It will be the first to be upgraded to the next Android version.
Sad that it cannot film in 720p and that the FM chips inside have not been coded in the OS :(

a fast phone
doesn't worth that much
Noticeable speed increase if you are upgrading from devices such as the HTC G1 (which can be hacked to run 2.3) as webpage loads much faster.
Everything loads very fast, multitasking works well with youtube .. so on.
if you are considering, maybe you should wait for a dual core phone.

Brilliant 4” Contour Display
Nexus S is manufactured by Samsung, and it is the first smartphone to launch with a Contour Display. The curved glass screen fits comfortably in the palm of your hand and along the side of your face.
A brighter screen with higher contrast means colors are incredibly vibrant, text is crisp at any size, and luminance is up to 1.5x higher than conventional LCD displays.
Take Nexus S outside, there's 75% less glare than on other smartphone displays. Your videos, pictures and games look their best and the sun won't wash them out.
Lighter and thinner profile
The Contour Display uses a thin-profile glass panel, making Nexus S uniquely slim and trim. It's subtle but you'll notice.
Near Field Communication (NFC)
Nexus S can read information from "smart" tags, or everyday objects that have NFC chips in them. These can be anything from stickers and movie posters to t-shirts.
