Nexus S: Overclocked to 1.4GHz – Will you try it?

The Nexus S has recently had some tinkering done to it by various people in the mobile phone world. Now we are hearing reports that the Nexus S can be and has been overclocked to 1.4GHz. Perhaps not overly fantastic but it does bring a bit more speed to the device, especially since it is running Gingerbread too.

If you are wondering what the original specs are of the Nexus S, you can read them from our previous article. If you want to, you can relive the moments of the Nexus back-story from over at Google’s blog spot.

Overclocking the Nexus S involves a few different things; the change brings in tweaked voltages and a higher maximum clock speed. If you are planning on overclocking your Nexus S there are obviously pro’s and con’s that you need to consider before running the update, there are quite a few things to bear in mind as informed by BriefMobile so head on over to their full article for the details. You can also get some information from Phandroid.com, where Kevin Krause has written an article.

If this is something that you would still like to try, then you can find out everything you need to know about it over at the xdadevelopers forum where they have an entire thread devoted to the amendments.

    No way! My Nexus S is lightning fast already, why would i want to make it unstable (maybe), have less battery life and have a chance to burn something? But i'm against overclocking on anything, including desktops. What slows down most user experiences are badly designed programs, not slow processors.

    On the other hand, it's cool that you can do this, and that some people do.
