The most difficult part is to compare the two handsets in case of downloads. Both are the equal matches in downloading. With the advent of time apps are increasing day by day, this may damage the attractiveness of Desire HD.

Quality Calling and Battery Timing

The only thing the Desire HD lags is battery timing. It has a huge 4.3-inch LCD screen and only 1230 mAh battery, which only make the thing worse. For those, who are regular mobile users extra battery acts not as a choice but a necessity. Moreover, the battery HTC has used is woefully inadequate for the task at hand. For applications, games and videos the battery just doesn’t fulfill user requirements.

On the contrary, the Nexus S has a battery capacity of 1500 mAh cell. As the screen (AMOLED) is also not too heavy as compared to LCD so battery of NEXUS S appears quite handy. It has quite improved increased stamina and is feasible for running apps, games and videos. Those who prefer long battery timings NEXUS S is the right choice. By being a bit of care the battery can last a couple of days without charge.

Storage

Nowadays, the storage is the top priority of users. NEXUS S comes with the pre-storage of 16 GB, which is more than enough for most of the users (quite enough for songs, apps and downloads). However, the problem is that when this storage runs out, there is no external memory microSD card slot.
