"Lets face facts, Nexus one is a LET DOWN."2.5 starson by buddyisadog
Pros: Fast processor, good screen size.
Cons: Doesn't sync to outlook. No multi-touch.
Summary: First, let me state that I do not own an iPhone. I own an original Samsun Instinct, almost two years old. I've kept my Instinct this long because it does what I need it to do (phone, text, email, twitter, facebook, etc) and it does it well. It may not be pretty, but at least I am not paying out the nose for the thing.
We all thougt google was going to revolutionize the smartphone industry in a similar way Apple did. I was literally frothing at the mouth in anticipation for the Nexus One. This was going to be the phone that changes everything.
The phone is a good smartphone... That's it. There is nothing special about it at all. The ability to purchase it without a contact? You can do that with any phone. Get it unlocked? You can unlock any phone you buy, you just need to jump through some hoops with your service provider.
Where is the innovation? Where is the Google I know and love that prides itself on high quality, cheap, open products? This phone is exactly the same as the HTC hero except for a slightly larger screen and faster processor.
What is all the fuss about?
Needless to say, I put my phone into the mail today to return it to Google. I am going back to my Instinct for now... And will patiently wait for something grand from someone...
