I bought this phone because I needed an actual phone (NEVER try to make an iPod touch work as an iPhone... It won't) and I wanted an Android. It's one of the earlier models, but it runs Stock Jelly Bean 4.1.1 BEAUTIFULLY.
One of the issues I have with the phone (and it COULD be just this particular phone... Not the entire Google Nexus S line) is that the function keys sometimes will not respond. I did find that the keys functioned BETTER when the WiFi was turned ON

Another issue is the battery charging. This particular phone line only charges to 94%-97%, depending on how much you want to play with it. If you charge it overnight, you will only be at 94% in the morning. If you charge it through computer USB technology, you can get it to 97% by unplugging and replugging the USB wire.

There is NO SD card capabilities on this phone, so the 16 GB is all the storage you will have... and only 1 GB of that is internal. So, you will need to watch your app sizes and move what you can to USB storage.

Overall though, it's a great starter phone for those who are new to the Android OS platform.
