Summary: I had ordered this refurbished phone on 1/Dec/12 and received it yesterday (9/Dec). Overall happy as i received the product in good condition and the phone appears brand new. The product came in a custom box with phone and accessories (usb cable [brand name : phihong] ,wall charger,a europe to US...
Summary: I've had this phone since it was released by Google. It was expensive. And it has its limitations. But it has been one of the best phones I own (which include Atrix 4G, N900, N9, Palm Pre 2, Sidekick 4G .. among others). It has a solid feel.
Pros: - Solid feel in the hand, heavy, made of metal and not much plastic on the outside. - Google direct device (when originally sold) - Has a nice table stand/charging base as an option (not sure that accessory is still sold) - Lots of developer support, if you like installing custom ROMs - Several O...
Cons: - Battery life is a bit lacking, but always seems to last at least a day - Screen is difficult to see in direct sunlight, unlike more modern phones like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. - Need updates to the radio firmware to achieve good signal retention (via OTA updates available from Google). - Googl...
Summary: First off this is my first smart phone. I did not want to spend a lot of money. Ordinarily I would not spend more then $60 for a phone. However I got to play with some Android phones and did some research and was hooked(gotta have one).
Summary: 1. Great product with features on-par if not better than iphone3g. 2. Low on battery life. Get ~1 day life even without using edge/3g data service and occasionally turning WiFi on. 3. Poor call transmission and reception - might be due to poor T-mobile coverage in my location.
Summary: Great phone! Fast, enough memory, looks good and comes with a very nice case. The only con is the battery lifetime wich needs to be charged almost everyday, depending the way you use the phone... but it seems to be a smartphone general issue, not only Nexus One. I recommend it!
Summary: Newegg needs to adjust the OS version on their product listing, and they could probably add a bolder note that mentions this doesn't ship with a memory card. But, as always, they make up for it by shipping it in 2 days when it was estimated to be 5.
Pros: Excellent phone for developers looking to code against the majority of OS versions in the wild (currently 2.1 or 2.2 - July 2011). Lightweight, crisp display, fast processor, runs WAY smoother than any of the 1st gen phones (Moment, Hero, Eris, etc.). Haven't used it hard enough yet to test true ...
Cons: Doesn't include a memory card. If this is your first device, you'll need to buy a Micro SD card separately. Also, Newegg lists this as having OS version 2.1, but it shipped with 2.2. Not a terrible thing, but I did buy the phone with the intention of testing on 2.1.
Summary: Overall, this phone is a perfect out of contract replacement phone. Think of it as buying last year's model car, you won't be disappointed, but you won't have the latest and greatest. If I had to choose over, I would pick this phone again.
Pros: This is an impressive phone for the price. Supports Android 2.3.4 and is still being updated by Google. Excellent screen and phone design. No carrier software interference, this phone only has Google software on it.
Cons: It's a 2010 phone, even with the fast processor it is starting to show its age. Battery life could be better, but it's not horrible. Accessories are getting harder to find, but not impossible.
can be a good deal if you can endure the upgrade process

Summary: This is a good phone. For the price, it may well be the best smartphone available. And unlike an iPhone, you don't have to pay extra for tethering or for GPS navigation. What's the catch? Well, it comes pre-loaded with a custom build of the older Android 2.2 release.
Summary: The phone arrived in what appeared to be the original packaging. Cons: There are issues with the capacitive buttons: you have to touch a little bit higher than expected and that can sometimes get in the way of hitting buttons or items in the lower part of the screen.
