REVIEW: Google Nexus One

March 4th, 2010 - 10:49 pm by Wajiha H.
Nexus One has been awaited for a long time now. There are many reasons for it, one could be the fact that it happens to be the very first Snapdragon-powered Android and its speed is awesome. The phone was officially launched in January 2010 and all praise to Google, it actually became available right after that. The first few units were only sold some countries like the UK, Singapore and Hong Kong.
Google Nexus One
The main features of the set are Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support, 3.7" 16M-color capacitive AMOLED touchscreen of WVGA (480x 800 pixel) resolution, Android OS v2.1, Slim profile and some great build quality, 512 MB RAM and 512 MB ROM, 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and geo-tagging, Wi-Fi and GPS with A-GPS, Accelerometer and proximity sensor, Standard 3.5 mm audio jack, stereo Bluetooth v2.1, Trackball navigation.

Of course the set comes with its disadvantages as well like no DivX and XviD video playback, No Flash support for the web browser though they say that an update is on the way, no smart and voice dialing, somewhat clumsy camera interface and limited camera features, no dedicated camera shutter key, Non hot-swappable memory card, No FM radio, the soft keys below the display are somewhat unresponsive.

Now of course this is Google’s phone, so the thing on everybody’s mind would be is there any special thing that the Nexus One is getting because of Google or not. This name that this phone carries with itself, carries certain obligations as well; towards that phone of course.

You can see all that the phone offers here.
