Google Nexus One review

 

Another HTC Android phone, but this one's direct from the search giant

Great camera ; Thin and light ; Responsive touchscreen ; Haptics for the main buttons ; Runs fast

Tilt function problematic ; Gets slippery ; Not every finger press registers ; No dedicated phone button ; No real keypad

Google has created hype around its own phone to rival Apple with its iPhone - and it has better specs on nearly every feature with the Nexus One. But is it enough to sway public opinion?

First Look: Google Nexus One

 

Another week another Android flagship. But what makes this better than all the rest, including its direct competition? We managed to get a hands-on with the handset following its launch in the US at the beginning of January. The media coverage in the...

Slim, fast, operator free

Average design

The media coverage in the run up to the launch of the Google phone was immense, with the American media believing the handset to be the second coming. While the Nexus One is very good, offering all that the Motorola Droid does without the slideout...

Google Nexus One

 

We cram a Nexus One full of Android 2.2-flavoured Froyo and take it for a spin.

(Gingerbread) at any rate. This makes it a good option if you want to be at the cutting-edge of Android software releases for the foreseeable future, and why we've decided to look at it even at this late juncture.

Hard to distinguish from HTC's Desire, the Nexus One lacks HTC's Sense software and more practical controls

Google Nexus One review

 

The Google Nexus One isn't quite the game-changer people hoped it would be, though it certainly trumps other phones in performance, display quality, and speed. The native Android soft keyboard is in desperate need of a redesign. And throwing in...

Is Google's Nexus One just another addition to the Android pack, or a real iPhone killer?

The wait is over: we finally have a worthy alternative to the iPhone

HTC Nexus One review

 

Call us geeks, but we can't hear the word "Nexus" without thinking of the utopian dimension in Star Trek where all wishes were fulfilled. And in the run-up to the announcement of its Nexus One phone, Google seemed to be going for the same idea. Indeed,...

The Nexus One has a gorgeous display, a lightning-fast processor, and a loaded feature set. The enhanced voice capabilities worked flawlessly, and the phone delivers solid performance.

Like other Android phones, the Nexus One forces you to store apps on the internal memory. The media player remains average, and it's missing some wanted features like hands-free Bluetooth dialing. Currently, Outlook Calendar syncing is not available.

It doesn't have all the features we'd like, but the Nexus One greatly enhances the Google Android family with a fast processor, good call quality, and improved voice control features. What's more, we love that all versions of the phone will be unlocked.

HTC Google Nexus One Review

 

Google's ‘superphone', the Nexus One, was announced to great fanfare back in January. With its HTC-built chassis and Google's own Android operating system, it was designed to be the phone that…

HTC One Google Play Edition (Unlocked)

 

HTC's beautiful and elegant One smartphone is even better running stock Android, thanks to the unlocked Google Play Edition.

One place you’ll see some performance degradation from the Sens-ified version is with the camera. HTC’s UltraPixel camera requires software processing to do its magic, particularly in low-light areas; otherwise it’s just a 4-megapixel sensor, albeit...

Nexus One

 

So what is it exactly that makes the Nexus One so special as an Android phone, well the obvious reason it it was made by HTC but totally how Google wanted it to be, no customisation, no branding, just a good solid well built phone for developers and ph...

As I started off saying at the start of this review, the Nexus One is the ultimate in developer experience or for those diehard geeks who want the latest technology right now and only now will do. Being the official ‘Google Phone’ you get all the...
