About this product
- Product InformationThe Nexus One was the first smartphone developed by HTC on behalf of Google. Originally conceived in 2009, the Nexus One was intended to be a phone capable showcasing the upcoming Android operating system, which was developed alongside the Nexus One. The final release date was January 5, 2010, with the system going on to sell worldwide in the following years. The Nexus One was among the first smartphone devices to be sold unlocked and without a SIM card, although T-Mobile cards were soon made available. Quickly nicknamed the "Droid," it proved hugely popular and showed the viability of Android products.Since the Nexus One phone was intended to be a premium device showing off the capabilities of Android as well as the first of a new line of Nexus devices, it was equipped with effective and high-speed hardware technology. The core of the device is a 1 GHz Qualcomm Scorpion CPU, supplemented by a Qualcomm Adreno 200 GPU. The motherboard and system are of the Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8250 build. It has 512MB of system memory with 190MB dedicated to the operating system. A 4GB microSDHC card was included with the ability to support up to 32GB cards. It is powered by a rechargeable 1400 mAh lithium-ion battery. The screen is capable of supporting a 480 × 800-pixel resolution, so you'll be able to view crystal-clear images. It also has a 254 PPI display and an AMOLED screen design. It has unique specs that integrate a translucent trackball, which can be illuminated to show different notification types as well as a supplementary touchscreen, which is also an effective input method. It has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi network capabilities that are built in as well as the ability to connect directly to other Google Android phones.The HTC Nexus One phone was designed to run the Android 2.1 Eclair version of the Android OS although an update to Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread is available. The Chrome browser is integrated into the system as is Google Search, enabling the quick viewing and searching of most online content. The system comes pre-loaded with the Twitter app, and additional software is available in the Google Play Store. Most notably, the YouTube app is integrated and designed to permit the playing and uploading of videos captured by the phone's 5.0-megapixel camera. Full integration with Google's business suite is built into the OS as is the ability to check email using the Gmail application. A touchscreen keyboard enables users to quickly type in more information.The HTC Nexus One is an exceptional mobile phone which makes good use of the Android OS and Google features to deliver search information to any user on the go. It is a phone capable of supporting most forms of communication, including texts, instant messages, email, phone calls, and video chat. This Google Nexus phone was the first to support Google Maps, and it continues to provide accurate and updated information upon request.

Great in 2010, good now but beware app storage limitations!
Great phone but beware of storage limitations for applications! You will run out of space very quickly unless you modify the phone's software to shift apps to the MicroSD card - which doesn't always work. I bought this phone to use with AT&T's GoPhone unlimited service and so far it works great - mostly. This phone runs well and can be updated to 2.3.4, has an excellent screen and processor, good camera (with dated interface) and above all has no add-ons or carrier clutter installed! The sound through headphones is excellent and the built-in speaker delivers despite it's size. For a two-year-old phone it does the job nicely. I'd recommend it highly for a basic user who does not have hundreds of apps.

I need more power Scotty!
Finally received after a month long wait....this is day 2 working with it. LIKES: screen in just the right size for my fingers, so my typing accuracy is increased. Lightweight, not a chunky phone. Touchscreen is responsive and the camera is on point. DISLIKES : been charging this thing for 2 days out-of-box and stool hasn't fully charged...whaddahell?! I ordered this product "new " but so far I feel like I've inherited the same old battery life problem I had with my HTC Aria Liberty. The display brightness is set on low and still using 67% of the battery, but the screen only on when I'm touching the phone. All that BS aside, I am enjoying my new phone so far.

Good power phone, different models made for different carriers
Beware: There is one model that will give you 3G on T-Mobil, but Edge only (2G)on AT&T. There is another model that will give you 3G on AT&T but Edge only (2G) on T-Mobil. The look is identical. Ask and make sure before you buy or you might get stuck with the slowest internet speed if you buy the wrong model. Pro's: Awesome graphics and speed. Fast processor, good amount of RAM and ROM. You can tweak, customize. Custom Roms avail. Radio. Multi-touch screen, crispy. Trackball. LED Flash. 5 MP Camera. Fast GPS. Thin. Standard Headphone jack. Did I say snappy? Two mics. Cons: Two versions of the phone for different carriers. Average to low battery life. No video recording from factory. Gets warm to hot when using while charging. No Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) Android made for this phone. Speaker audio gets distorted at high volumes. (Audio quality ok) For me, right Nexus One for right carrier + custom rom + price range between $100 and $125= Best value. This phone has some muscles, powerful, impressive. Read full review

Older, reliable model, now a good value; get a cover.
As with most smartphones, it's "smart" before being a phone, which reduces its Ease of Use. But it's a replacement for the model I'm used to, and I've been happy enough with it. Battery life (w/o GPS or digital WAN) is decent, easily a couple of days. I use the wi-fi ability frequently at home and at work in place of data, and with 411 information, I rarely miss digital WAN data. Caveat: I'm not a target user for smartphones; my "smart" usage is GMail and a little web browsing when in a wi-fi bubble. Get a protective cover. It's pretty tough but won't stand up to repeated dropping.

Good phone, great value!
My wife and I have been a Nexus One owners for over a year now. We love it! There are indeed some quirks with the touch screen as others have noted, almost all of which are fixed by turning the screen off and back on. It has a solid metal construction and even my wife has not managed to kill dropping and kicking it around. The device is an almost perfect size. No screen bezel so the touch screen is easy to use. If you are at all into using mods that is where the amazing capabilities of this device get to shine. The hacking community for this phone is very active still and new features are released almost every day. Overall I like this phone a lot and would recommend it to anyone.
