"Yes It Can"on by Billism1
Pros Fast!, elegant, multi-tasking, multi-touch (yes, it is multi-touch capable), removable storage, awesome AMOLED screen, Includes free Google Maps app with narrated turn by turn GPS navigation, 5mp camera, open OS, very customizable.
Cons Less than perfect touch screen sense - The iPhone does seem a little smoother in this area.
The select/copy/paste works great, but not quite as elegant as the iPhone's.
Not a lot of multi-touch apps available, yet. This will change soon I am sure.
Summary As close to perfect as any phone on the market gets. Best phone on the market and does most everything you could want it to, despite reviewers saying it cannot do many things that it can. It does support multi-touch, but Google does not include multi-touch features in the default shipped applications (In the US market), no doubt because they do not want to get sued by Apple. There are already apps on the Android market that use multi-touch, such as the "Dolphin" web browser. Also, you can sync Exchange email, contacts, AND calendar, and tasks; but this requires an app called "Touch Down", which is another $20. I hope to see this integrated into the next release of Android.
Multi-tasking is key for any power user. You get great functionality out of the box that the iPhone requires jail breaking to come close to. For instance, you can install a "lo-jack"-like app (such as "Mobile Defense") that you can activate if your phone gets lost or stolen. That is possible because Android allows apps to run as services in the background.
To get full Exchange syncing (including calendar), you need a paid app (~$20) to do this. But this is possible, and something all reviews I have read say is not possible on the Nexus One.
"Wowed by Nexus One"on by CaseCraw
Pros Extremely fast and clean. You can really feel the 1 g processor power with this phone. It pretty much always you to take full control over all elements of the phone.
Cons Not for the none tech savvy. If you how problems with technology stay with the i phone.
Also the phone jumps between 2g and 3g rapidly. All though you don't really notice that much of difference because of the added processing power.
Summary It continues to surprise me with its usability. The more i get comfortable with the phone features better it gets.
Pros Beautiful hi-res, deep color screen.
Fast, fast processor
Active noise reduction really works
Sleek design in the hand
Not tied to iTunes for music
Infinitely customizable home screens
Decent camera w/flash
Built in Google Nav, Latitudes
Cons No multitouch in native browser (have to d/l Dolphin)
Confused support between Google/HTC/TMobile
Summary We bought two of these the day they went on sale. Both have performed without a hitch. We've had no problems with the touchscreen or 3G reception, which some have reported.
The screen is gorgeous, and the Nexus really lets you show it off with the animated wallpapers. The processor is very fast; on long webpages my iPhone would "checkerboard" as it tried to keep up with scrolling. On the Nexus, using the same wifi connection, their is NO lag.
The active noise reduction is great. You can make a call from a noisy subway station or basketball game and the caller at the other end doesn't hears almost none of the background noise. This should be standard on every phone.
I'm not sure Google will succeed in breaking the subsidized phone monopolies that some carriers have created for themselves, but I give them credit for trying. In the meantime, though, having support for the sale through Google, support for the phone warranty through HTC, and support for phone service through a third entity creates confusion. That hasn't been a problem for me, since both phones have been perfect, but it's a potential issue.
Overall, there is no other phone that matches the screen, performance or customization of the Nexus all in one package. It makes my iPhone seem rather boring now.
Pros it has everything a phone need it terms of hardware so any problems or features that are missing can be fixed with just an update.
Cons the phone does not use all of its possible features.
Summary its the best phone to buy because its a phone that will consistently improve with time. eg if get a 2 year contact it will still be one of the best or the best phone in the market because all google needs to do is a software update if a better phone comes out.
"Great Phon"on by wademsw
Pros 1GHZ, 512 MB ram, This is a computer people!
Cons no multitouch yet (It will be here soon)
Summary Love it! Showed It to 2 friends, Iphone guy and Moto Droid Guy. They both were wanting this phone within 15 min of playing with it. This phone is like an Iphone that runs android with affordable service.
If you are afraid of options and choices get an Iphone as they are more simple. If you are someone who likes options and customization THIS phone.
If you are on the fence watch this video of the nexus in a 3d Benchmark test (that it completely Owns)
it runs at almost 30 Frames per second!!! try that on any other phone.
and people who actually dont own this phone need to stop reviewing it. more than half of the bad reviews are Iphone people hating on it without even giving it a chance/testing it.
