So, Google has finally brought out its own phone into the market eh? Lets see if this new android powered phone is a threat to the iPhone or is it just a pile of stool? Lets find out! Shipping The shipping of this thing was EXCELLENT, It came here in about 3 days, but weirdly they said it was coming in a week. Overall, the shipping was awesome. Out of the box First thing you see is the phone, But when you look under the phone you will see all of its accesories, includes a set of heaphones, a usb transfer cable, a charger with a plug on the end, a set of instructions, a little case, and a 4GB Micro SD card inside the phone. Warning: Spoilers inside! Design Hands down, this is one of the best looking phones on the market. I'd put it right up there with the iPhone. The sleep/wake and on/off button is stuck up on the top of the device, which I actually like quite a lot. It's built in such a way that it's pretty much impossible to accidentally set off in your pocket. On bottom of the monitor are four touch buttons with haptic feedback. Some people have complained that these buttons register touches poorly. I haven't noticed any issues myself. Almost every time I tap one, it registers. I've had a couple of failures, but no more than that. The trackball is pretty much superfluous, though. Screen: I am in love with this screen. Every image is crisp and crystal clear, the colors are impossibly bright and vivid. OLED screens are the best damned thing since sliced bread. Until the iPhone gets one (hopefully this year) this is an area the Nexus One has unquestionable superiority in. Browsing The browsing experience on my Nexus One is incredible, Android's browser is fairly uninteresting, but it gets the job done and it works as quickly as it can with a 3G network. I'm able to keep multiple windows open on the Nexus One (with other apps running in the background) and not notice any slowdown in my browsing. Some Nexus One owners are experiencing periodic 3G difficulties, and I regret to say that I am among them. Whether this is a hardware or software issue is inconsequential. It's infuriating to the user and Google should have spotted this issue before their phone launched. This issue is compounded by Google's terrible customer support. Attention you open-source hippies; you need to rein yourselves back a bit and spend a few minutes thinking about your brand. I understand that you all want to make something crazy awesome and advanced, push it out, and then leap forward to the next big thing. But you still owe a duty to your customers to make sure this crap doesn't happen. Multi-tasking Fantastic. I've gone running several times with a GPS jogging-tracker running along with my music player. Periodically I'd stop to check my email or send a text message or something, acts which would normally lag terribly due to the processor strain. I noticed no such strain on the Nexus One; it took everything I could throw at it and kept on runnin. As A Phone Voice quality for the user is good, not great. However, the Nexus One's new noise-cancelling technology is fantastic and works startlingly well. I think this will be standard on every cell phone sold in a few years. Speech-To-Text This is the first time that Speech-to-Text has been a truly viable option for widespread use on a phone. I use it constantly. When I don't want to type out a text message or IM, I just speak into the microphone. Searching is easier than ever now; with two clicks, I can have a voice-search window open and recording. The accuracy of their conversion program is incredible. I'd estimate it at 90% or so. As long as I spoke fairly clearly, it had very little trouble understanding me. More complex, lengthy sentences caused some issues, but that isn't what this is for. Think of speech-to-text as a more grammatically pleasant alternative to texting short-hand. Camera Decent, not great. Auto-focus is much improved over the Droid, image quality is as good as you can expect out of a smartphone. The LED flash is nice. Overall The Nexus One is the most talked-about Android phone. It is fast becoming the best Android phone for two reasons, Hardware and software. Pros And Cons +Incredibly fast and quick touch response. +Awesome design and feels great in your hand. +Great Video recording and isn't really bad with photos. =The VoIP reception isn't great but isn't bad. -3G is kinda sluggish if your using a non-T-Mobile network from what i hear.
