Android 2.3.5 for Nexus S 4G Brings Improved 4G Speeds

Is your Nexus S 4G receiving slower-than-usual 4G speeds? Sprint aims to fix that today, as they release Android 2.3.5 for the device. The OTA update also fixes some minor WiFi bugs, adds a 4G toggle widget, and oficially enables NFC. Hopefully this update will boost Nexus S 4G sales as well. Now, the real question here is “Are there actual improvements in 4G speeds?” Engadget says yes, as they have provided us with some screenshots showing 4G speeds on an updated Nexus S 4G (the speeds on the left are the updated device, and those on the right are from a 2.3.4 Nexus S 4G).

So, who’s excited for some faster 4G on their Nexus S? Leave a comment below!

    Why are they updating to 2.3.5? Why not skip to 3.0? Heck, 4.0 is just around the corner.
