Nexus One is a great phone
9 September 2012
Excerpt: Being a faithful iPhone user for many years, I decided it was time for a change and looked to the Android operating system. I wanted a phone that offered a pure, stock version of Android that didn't have any skins on it (Moto Blur, Sense, Touch Wiz, etc...). These skins, while stylish, real;ly seem to slow down the phone more than they benefit it from the added convenience.
Excerpt: As it says in the title, this was my first smart phone. I bought it during February 2010 from Google directly, mostly because it was one of the first phones running Android that I knew about. Anyways, this phone was the slimmest phone back then and while many newer Android-capable phones are out now, I still think this is one of the most compact. Pros: Runs Android not Windows Mobile or Apple Software.
Excerpt: I was a little hesitant to switch over from my 1st gen Iphone but decided to finally try out Android. I'm really happy with my purchase and allthough the interface doesn't seem quite nearly as polished as Apple's, all of my needs are met. Seamless integration with all of Google's products is a huge win!
Pros: The sleek design makes it such a lovable gadget. This phone is so user friendly even a tech dimwit can figure it out in just mins. I like it so much because it comes unlocked & ready to be used in any part of the world.
Cons: The only issue I have had with it is it just shut off & now unable to load any applications. I am not so sure if it crushed because of the apps. If anyone out there has experienced this please feel free to share how it was resolved.
"Nice phone. Lot's of features. My first smart phone."

Pros: Nice and thin. Intuitive interface. Easy to connect to the Web and apps like Facebook, Twitter, Gmail. Easy to set up my other email. The web surfing is very fast. The GPS using Google maps works great. WiFi in my house connects automagically.
Cons: The screen is very hard to see in daylight. Sometimes it's hard to zero in on the touch screen with keys. I'm new to smartphones and texting, so some of that is me, but some is the interface. The screen really shows finger prints.
Pros: With regards to the body of the Nexus, it?s well crafted, sleek and just fits perfectly into your hands. It has a large display screen that is rich, classy, vibrant, colorful and lively. And what?s best;- it?s slightly larger than the iPhone?s screen
Cons: The music quality of the Nexus is not all that great? I know this is a bit unfair as I?m addicted to the iPod.
Pros: Display is fantastic. Very easy to use. Good apps available. Camera and Video are incredible - never use my camera or flip anymore.
Cons: It has frozen on me a couple times (else I'd give it 5 stars) Missing a couple of basic features like vibrate and then ring. The contact list doesn't change orientation which is minor but irritating.
Pros: Amazing phone! I wish that those who have written many of these reviews would explore the market more. Android is known for giving the user the power to tweak and personalize their device. At least 70% of complaints can be fixed by an apparently.
Cons: Most of my gripes can be corrected with with apps or a software update. Review below
