The Nexus S by Samsung was the second Google phone and it was manufactured by Samsung to offer a pure Android experience, like the Nexus One before it. The phone was based off of the popular Galaxy S variants, but it differed from its brethren by offering a curved 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, dubbed the "contour display." Inside, an NFC chip for wireless data transmission and credit card payments can be found.
