Don't worry, it was hopelessly off-topic by the end :p.

Shame there isn't much reviews on rooting, reckon CM9 and other ROM mods deserve some notice once a while.

OK, just seen a B grade Google Nexus S for £190 and I'm tempted to get it before someone else does. Anyone else think its worth a go? Comes with USB cable and charger in a box.

It's a lot of money for what is basically an original Galaxy S in dodgy condition. I wouldn't buy it if it was my money.

You'll get a new S2 for not much more than that soon with luck.

SpeedyG  Apr. 7, 2012 at 17:12

Its the dual core one btw with ICS, not the older one based on the galaxy s matt.

4.7 inches of HD glory and 16gb storage.

Cheapest one I've seen is £299 sim free.

Ahh the Galaxy Nexus, not the Nexus S then. Yes, it's a very good phone, I still stand by finding out what's making it "B-Grade" before you but it though.

If it's just a bit of general wear and tear, it's a good price. If it's a scratched/cracked screen, I'd avoid it. More trouble than it's worth.

Had a play with it and it seems fine, didn't see any cracks, bad scratches or dodgy pixels on the phone when using it. Seems like wear and tear and will come with a box which is a bonus. Seems legit (From Cex shop)

Tbh it will have a 12 month warranty from cex so for 190 i think its a deal if your happy with it.

Treab  Apr. 7, 2012 at 18:26

Are you sure though? the c grade galaxy nexus is 335 on cex.co.uk?

And its the nexus s which is 190 on cex.co.uk (the previous version.)

SpeedyG  Apr. 7, 2012 at 19:03

Hmmm, yeah thats odd, looked like the newer one in person, might have to recheck that. My eyes might need checking. XD

matt101101 / MOD  Apr. 7, 2012 at 20:51

On screen buttons = newer one

Capacitive touch buttons = older one

I said soon, got to wait for the SGS3 to come out first :)

might be that the cex salesman got it wrong and thats why it was being sold at 190?

Yeah probably. I really missed an opportunity when I saw a cheap Galaxy S unlocked B grade for £150. There is a slightly better one this tech shop sell now, it its a limited edition silver one for £190 instead.

Eurgh.
