    What software features of android does the nexus s not have that the galaxy nexus has? It doesn't just have to be jellybean, it can be ICS or anything.
    Like I know that the nexus s doesn't have face unlock, which is a newer android feature, what else does it not have that the galaxy nexus has?

    The Nexus has a faster processor, more RAM and onboard storage memory (16/32GB), and better camera hardware, so it does some things faster and better. It also has LTE capability and a larger screen with higher resolution video. But other than those and a couple of software features, it's not a huge improvement. Which is why I still have my Nexus S and didn't upgrade. Perhaps the next Nexus device will be more interesting for an upgrade for me.

    Google Now is part of Jelly Bean 4.1.1 and also available in the stock ROM, i.e. you don't need to have a custom JB ROM for it. It works the same on my Galaxy Nexus as on my wife's Nexus S (both on stock JB -rooted). The only real big difference in my opinion is the memory built in -the Nexus S has about half of that of the Gnex and you can tell the difference. Saying that, the Nexus S is still very usable in an everyday sense, but with JB it has reach the end of the road and any future OS upgrades, if they are available for it, will have a detrimental effect.
