This is a discussion on I've been spoiled by the Nexus One! within the Nexus S forums, part of the Google Phones category; Originally Posted by AndroidIsTheTruth People say HTC makes phones but samsung is number one in android sales with just the Galaxy S. That alone speaks ...
Ya it may speak volume but it also has something to do with ads and availability I will elaborate. For the ads I can barely change the channel without seeing a commercial for a Galaxy S so that helps allot. For availability I say this cause I am in Canada and without buying online and then paying unlocking fees to a third party company this is the best phone there is. I mean seriously they have them on all the providers in the US and all the countries with android so how do you want them to not have great amounts of sales. If it were an htc phone that did all these things it would be the same thing.
Exactly. That's the reason they are top sellers with one phone compared to all phones HTC sold combined for that period. And it's only practical for Google to work with them.
Galaxy S is by far the most successful phone out there and by merging that phone with developers, they will expand the market greatly.
It's important to understand that very few people out there actually understand the difference between all these Android phones.
It's all about creating new revenue sources in an already vast market.
I have never owned a Samsung, but my girlfriend has had a lower-end slider type Samsung phone from ATT for over a year now and that baby hasn't faltered once!
From reading around, i've heard about GPS problems and shoddy building, but other than that, I don't see why Samsung is so 'cheap'. I used to sell their TVs a few years ago and they were always among the top-quality brands.
My BB storm has some major issues, like leaking light and a sticky sticky screen, but it has lasted me 2 full years. I have to imagine the Nexus S won't be quite so crappy. It's funny to think that I had not even heard of Android when that Storm came out, so let's keep this all in perspective.
Android is still a fledgling. These Nexus phones are helping to coddle it until it can stand on its own.
Remember how many people said the "nexus one was a failure" ???? Don't be that guy!!!
Money-wise, it sucked, but that phone put Android in the center of the map! Nexus S can never do what Nexus One did. It is just a continuation of where they left off.
Nexus S will not be a 'failure' so long as people use it, much like the Nexus One.
