Google Nexus One

 

On paper, Google's new Nexus One is the smartphone to beat. It's got a gorgeous screen, a svelte formfactor, and the hottest phone operating system on the planet, Android 2.1. Unfortunately, just like the Motorola Droid, the Nexus One has some problems...

Great OLED screen; replaceable battery; good call quality; infinitely customizable

Keyboard wigs out; weird soft-key placement; Android Marketplace sucks; T-Mobile

Of course, the worst of it is that this Nexus One is really only usable on T-Mobile’s limited network for now. AT&T users can buy it unlocked but will be limited to EDGE speeds. The good news is that the Nexus One is coming out in Verizon trim this...

Nexus One Review

 

Nexus One Review - The Google Nexus One is the most anticipated Android phone ever. First, because Google was rumored to be

at no point, was the Blackberry 9700 was clearly better or Worse than the Nexus One. Both could be as “bad” or “as good” depending on one’s point of view, but I think that they are both in the “normal” range. Maybe people aren’t used to T-Mobile's...

HTC One Google Play Edition review: One for Google

 

The Google Play Edition of the HTC One presents one of the hottest smartphone tickets this year in a whole new dimension. Gone is the home-brewed, Sense-d Android OS. Instead, users of the Google Play Edition of the metal-clad smartphone will be...

Stock Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 ; 4.7" 16M-color 1080p Super LCD3 display with 469ppi pixel density; Gorilla Glass 2 ; 32 GB built-in storage; 2GB of RAM ; 4 MP autofocus "UltraPixel" camera with 1/3'' sensor; 2µm pixel size; LED flash; OIS ; 2.1 MP...

Only a few of the HTC Sense enhancements are present ; Underwhelming 4MP ultra-pixel camera ; Camera app offers only basic settings ; Available only in the United States with no subsidies for $599 ; 32GB version available only, single silver color scheme

We enjoyed every minute spent with the HTC One Google Play Edition. Like its Samsung Galaxy S4 counterpart, the metal-clad smartphone with stripped-down Android on board offers the pure Google experience, tucked into a vastly improved hardware compared...

HTC One Google Play Edition (Unlocked)

 

HTC's beautiful and elegant One smartphone is even better running stock Android, thanks to the unlocked Google Play Edition.

Beautiful stock Android 4.2. No bloatware, mandatory UI layers, or OS update restrictions. Gorgeous hardware. Faster than the regular HTC One.

Expensive. No removable battery or memory card slot. Camera performance suffers a bit without HTC's software processing.

Camera and Conclusions One place you'll see some performance degradation from the Sens-ified version is with the camera. HTC's UltraPixel camera requires software processing to do its magic, particularly in low-light areas; otherwise it's just a...

HTC One Google Play edition: what's different?

 

Last week we got our hands on the HTC One Google Play edition and shared our first impressions. Today we dig a little deeper into how this superphone

Stock Android ; Beautiful design ; Stunning display ; Impressive camera

No AWS band for HSPA ; No Google Wallet support

The HTC One Google Play edition is the same phenomenal phone we've come to love made even better with stock Android, but held back slightly by the lack of AWS for HSPA+ and Google Wallet.

HTC One (Google Play Edition) Review

 

The HTC One Google Play Edition is the pure Android phone to get if you want the best display, design and audio quality -- if you're willing to splurge.

Gorgeous design; Nearly flawless display; Impressive audio quality; Strong overall performance

Missing camera features and other perks; Steep price tag; Galaxy S4 has better camera

The HTC One Google Play Edition is the pure Android phone to get if you want the best display, design and audio quality -- if you're willing to splurge.

Pure Android: Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One 'Google Play editions' review

 

The Android device story has followed a predictable pattern for the past few years: Samsung, HTC, LG, and Sony release top-tier hardware to carriers the world over, with their own proprietary...

Stock Android ; Beautiful design ; Improved battery life

Poor camera software ; IR blaster not functional yet ; No menu button

There are still tradeoffs, but these are the best Android phones you can get

HTC One Google Play Edition review:

 

Editors' note: For this review, I focused on how the HTC One Google Play Edition differs from the carrier-branded versions of the handset. For my complete assessment of the HTC One's design, features, and performance, please see the full review .

The HTC One Google Play Edition's metal design is gorgeous. The phone's hardware and components are top-notch. The clean Android Jelly Bean UI is refreshingly simple, and Google promises a stream of fresh updates as they happen.

The HTC One Google Play Edition doesn't offer any of the extras found in HTC Sense. The handset's unsubsidized price is expensive.

The pricey HTC One Google Play Edition's unique blend of premium design, components, and pure Jelly Bean software will only tempt true Android fanatics.

HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S 4 Google Play edition Review - Nearly Nexus

 

Google I/O went on to be a not so subtle breakdown of Google's strategy to de-couple more of the platform from the primary point releases of Android to get more consistent user experiences and APIs across the ecosystem. While many expected new hardware...

Choice – that's really what it comes down to. If you know what AOSP stands for without having to Google it, you probably want to buy the Google Play edition of whichever phone suits you most. If you don't care or don't know (which seems unlikely if...

Google Nexus One review: Firstborn

 

All droids are equal but some droids are more equal than others. Google it. You'll get the Nexus One. There are around 50 smartphones and tablets running Android today. That's right, out of all the offspring they fathered with the Open Handset Alliance...

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 2 Mbps HSUPA support ; 3.7" 16M-color capacitive AMOLED touchscreen of WVGA (480x 800 pixel) resolution ; Android OS v2.1 with kinetic scrolling and pinch zooming ; Slim profile and some great...

No DivX and XviD video playback ; No Flash support for the web browser (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...

What does it mean? Well, not that the ones we’ve seen so far are some poor half-blood droids but the Nexus One is supposed to be THE thing. For one, it’s the first Snapdragon-powered Android and it shows. The Nexus One is wickedly fast. The WVGA...
