Ten clear, blurry-free minutes with the Nexus One

Ten clear, blurry-free minutes with the Nexus One
We've seen blurry videos of the up-coming Nexus One, but here is a clear video that gives you ten solid, quality minutes with the Android flavored device. The phone handles the Android 2.1 OS with no lagging, thanks to the Snapdragon chip under the hood. The screen looks bright and sharp (as best we can tell, looking through our PC monitor) and the device overall seems very responsive with the term "zippy" coming to mind. Quick, fleeting shots of some French speaking web sites and the Android Market are shown along with Google and some video of the Nexus One from YouTube. After it's over, the video leaves you hungry for some more 2.1 action and the good news is, it might not be too long before that hunger is satisfied.

iphone has the best smoothness and quality of built-in software. Android is more customizable and has a better UI. If they combined, it would be amazing, but like thats going to happen.

i actually thought this too, but its the video camera quality. yes its good but too give you a better example get your phones video camera out, and swipe your finger across something generaly fast. you will most likely get the same affect.

If the iphone's so great how come it didn't get MMS until this year? 2 years late... Dude I had MMS on my Motorola Razr back in 07. and plus, the iphone is shit now compared to phones like The Droid, the HTC hero. Maybe the iphone was cool when it first came out, but it ain't no more. One more thing, Do you know how many bad things there are about the iphone? Let me name some.. 1. You HAVE to use itunes to set up your phone. 2. You can't delete music on your phone, you have to go into itunes. 3. Camera, it has good quality but can do better. 4. One touch Shortcuts, for instance you HAVE to go into settings to turn on wi-fi or something. Now don't get me wrong, there are a lot of things that's good about the iphones, but seriously. iphone is 2007. Its 2010 now.

So much for a "quality product". My first 3GS had screen responsiveness issues (got that one on day 1). Apparently Apple's quality control was less than stellar on this generation of iPhones. And no dickface, I never dropped it once. Now my 2nd one (I've had this one since early August) is memory dumping left and right and intermittently stuttering. No, its not memory dumping in some garbage 3rd party app, it's dumping in Safari. Safari crashes and I lose all my pages. It continues to crash until I reset the phone. Quality? I dont think so... If you want to be able to do exactly one thing at a time, hey that's YOUR prerogative. The other day I wanted to listen to some streaming radio while surfing some web pages, but silly me, I realized that it was an iPhone! That's just plain irritating. It was a tough decision to pick between music and the web. I never had to worry about that on my old G1. I can't wait for the Xperia X10 to arrive so I can finally dump the iPhone on some poor soul who knows no better. Oh and BTW, have u ever checked what an iPhone retails for? It's a lot more than $400. Lesson here, do your homework and don't be a douche bag.

Yeah so much for "multi-tasking" that AT&T claims. On the Droid you can surf and listen to streaming radio. I had my GPS Navigator running and listening to streaming radio at the same time once and had no lagg or misconnection. Who cares if you can talk and surf on AT&T (3G ONLY). You have to pull the phone away from your face to surf the web but have to put it to your ear to listen (unless speakerphone or bluetooth). On WiFi I can talk and surf too, but who cares I don' NEED that feature! I'm glad some iPhone users are finally weeding out these brainwashed Apple lovers. I think Apple is great but no tech company is perfect. I think in my opinion the Droid really set the stage. Now lets see if Apple can do better.

One thing I noticed on the Android market that I didn't notice on the Apple market (I have an iTouch by the way). You can't simply get a refund on crap apps. The Android market will allow a refund if "returned" within a 24 hr period. And Apple isn't open. Everyone wants to brag about iTunes...WHY?! You can't even use it on anything else. Even when iTunes became popular I still kept my Napster account because I had to convert everything. After I download stuff from Napster and Amazon MP3 I can use it on multiple devices. I would bet money if someone like Napster or another company other than Apple had the same restrictions as Apple, they would sink. Yes Apple makes great software, computers and even the iPhone is cool, but not the best. And I thought they said Verizon folks drunk the kool-aid. Don't eat apples from strangers they'll brainwash you. :P So, I agree with you iTony, its time for some to see whats new out there.

SamTime have you ever heard of iTunes? You can listen to music in your library while browsing the web... Honestly I'm not really seeing what all the hype is with this phone. Android is open source, sweet, but it looks pretty much the same as most of the Android phones that have come out this year. Good responsiveness and speed, otherwise?....

people stop arguing over whether or not the iphone is good or best or whatever. Android and iPhone are both great smartphone platforms. Your experiences and opinions about either don't dictate everyone elses.

Very fast OS! But the graphics look boring, whats up with that? The menus look like something from my old Samsung blade. This is GooGle's flagship phone, it should look stunning in every way.

Nice vid. Looks to be a great phone! Screen looks absolutely flawless, and OS is mos def "snappy". But can someone shed some light on why one would need a trackball for such a big, beautiful touchscreen phone such as this? Am I missing something?

@YouLostTheGame I used to have a G1. I found the trackball to be handy navigating small links on web pages. It's nice because of the omission of multitouch. It was also a means to play games with instead of exclusively using ur accelorometer or touching the screen.
