Google Nexus One Phone Review

Today, I’m going to review the Google Nexus One smartphone. When the Nexus One first came out it was standing against a very tough rival in the iPhone. Android at that time seemed light-years behind Apple with their operating system. Apple pretty much had a choke-hold over the Android Market, but it seemed like when the Nexus One came out the tide started shifting. Yeah, the Apple iPhone is still a very popular smartphone but the Android market is gaining ground on them at a remarkable rate.

The Nexus One boasts some very impressive features such as:

  • Fast 1 GHz Snapdragon Processor – Virtually no lagging apps.
  • 3G Connectivity – Works great, seamlessly switches from 2G & 3G.
  • It’s Unlocked! You can use it with any GSM Carrier.
  • 5 megapixel camera – Not the same old blurry pics on traditional phones.
  • Micro SD slot – Up to 32GB memory cards can be used.
  • 3.7 In. Super LCD Touchscreen – Amazing display.
  • So much more…

I bought this smartphone the day it came out almost 2 years ago and have never looked back. I was a previous owner of the Apple iPhone 3G, which was a good phone but it didn’t compare to the much faster and fully customizable Nexus One.

The Other Owners View of the Nexus One

Now that you’ve heard me rave about it, I wanted to check out what other owners thought of it. I’ve scoured the internet for over 2 hours reading numerous reviews and what I’ve found was practically everyone rated this smartphone a 5/5 or 4/5 star rating. With the only complaints being that it can get pretty hot with extensive use and that the battery cover can be a little difficult to remove at first, but does get easier with time. Those are minor complaints compared to the overall great features that this phone provides. If you’re looking for a good smartphone that’s been on the market for a while and has all the kinks worked out then this is the one might just be for you.

*UPDATE 5/5/15*

I just wanted to give a little update, I posted this review OVER three years ago. I loved my Nexus One back then, but like I’m sure you know smartphones are going out-of-date faster than ever. This one served me well for a long time, but sadly it’s nowhere near acceptable if you want to use the latest apps on the Google Playstore.

I can honestly say though, this was my favorite smartphone to date.
