Samsung Nexus S Philippines : Price, Specs, Globe Plans Availability

I don't know how long it's been in their handset line-up; But apparently, you can now get Google Phone, Samsung Nexus S, bundled with various Globe Postpaid Plans --

The phone comes FREE with Plan 2499, 3799, 5000 and 10000. Bundled with all Unli plans and Plan 299, it costs Php 21,307. With Plan 499, 999 and 1799, you can get it for Php 19,189, Php 13,071 and Php 7,204 respectively.

The distinguishing characteristic of Android 2.3-powered Samsung Nexus S aka Google Nexus S is its unique Contour 4-inch SuperAMOLED Display with curved glass screen -- designed to kiss/hug the cheek nicely when you make a phone call. Other features include a 5 MegaPixel autofocus camera with flash, VGA front camera, 16GB of internal storage, WVGA 30fps video camera, 3.5mm audio jack, microUSB port and Wifi, 3G and Bluetooth connectivity support. Oddly enough, it doesn't come with a microSD card slot for expanding the memory.

This phone looks great, I think. I mean, how often do you come across a smartphone with a curved screen?

But what's up with the lack of HD video camera and microSD card slot?


  1. Hope you note all the little bugs this baby had/has..

  2. The nexus s is designed for a dev user so I expect a not so social phone in specs

  3. i think the Nexus S that Globe is selling is the I9023 version, which means it doesn't have the Super AMOLED display, instead it's Super Clear LCD version of the Nexus S. They only released the Super AMOLED version in the US, UK and of course, Greenhills (if it's imported directly from the US/UK).

  4. Thanks for this. :) We'll look into it. :)

  5. I got mine from Best Buy in the US, so far no bugs and it is very smooth. And since it's Vanilla Android 2.3, I get the latest and greatest build of Android as soon as Google sends it OTA. Now running 2.3.4 with GTalk video calls available. Even if it's not a dual core, it runs faster than most of the Dual Core Android Phones out there because of the Manufacturer's Skin running on top of the OS. The Super AMOLED display is very vibrant and very bright when it needs to, I hope the Super Clear LCD released here in PH is the same or at least close enough. Overall, Nexus S is the most well-rounded, if not the best, Android Phone today. 

    Btw, I forgot to mention that the battery life of this baby is Superb! It can definitely, safely last you a  day or two without charging. 

  6. just got mine yesterday from globe. you're right, it's I9023. i didnt know that. argh. coz gsm arena says its only for Indian market so I assumed we're not included with that.
    but screen is still good actually. plus its preloaded with 2.3.3, though i already installed 2.3.4

  7. It had some when it was released. I guess they fixed it hence the version being 2.3.4 already.

    It's no doubt a great phone as was the Galaxy S.

    But there are a lot of phones coming out. The wise option would be to get a Galaxy S II when it comes out.. or hopefully a Nexus S II if ever there is one.

  8. The only dev part of it would be it can be unlocked easily as opposed to other "non-dev" phones that requires rooting.

    "Social phone specs" are the same.

  9. Super LCD isn't that bad. :) I've owned a Samsung Galaxy S prior to my HTC Desire HD.. And when it was still new, I really wanted to go back to the SGS.. But now I got used to it. Also seeing as the SGS xda-dev scene has been stagnant since February.. I'm happy to have switched. :)

  10. Hi... I want to ask if the Samsung Nexus is okay for Skype? I'm thinking of buying this one if the skype application will function. thank you very much.
