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: 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.

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...

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...

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.

Google Nexus One (T-Mobile)


Google's Nexus One is a fine phone, but Google's approach to retailing and support is awful.

Fastest Android phone yet. Beautiful hardware. Super-bright screen.

No phone or in-person support. Confusing pricing and service options. No voice dialing or transcription over Bluetooth.

Google Nexus One


Dazzling OLED display ; Snappy performance ; Sleek, ultraslim design

Software keyboard is far from perfect ; Average multimedia player

The Google Nexus One impresses with a stunning AMOLED display, speedy performance, and cool tweaks to the Android OS; but some network issues prevent it from being a superphone.

HTC Nexus One review


Call us geeks, but we can't hear the word "Nexus" without thinking of the utopian dimension in Star Trek where all wishes were fulfilled. And in the run-up to the announcement of its Nexus One phone, Google seemed to be going for the same idea. Indeed,...

The Nexus One has a gorgeous display, a lightning-fast processor, and a loaded feature set. The enhanced voice capabilities worked flawlessly, and the phone delivers solid performance.

Like other Android phones, the Nexus One forces you to store apps on the internal memory. The media player remains average, and it's missing some wanted features like hands-free Bluetooth dialing. Currently, Outlook Calendar syncing is not available.

It doesn't have all the features we'd like, but the Nexus One greatly enhances the Google Android family with a fast processor, good call quality, and improved voice control features. What's more, we love that all versions of the phone will be unlocked.

Review: Google Nexus One


With totalitarian control over the hardware, Google's Android OS seems to be fully realized (finally!) in the Nexus One.

You can buy a Nexus One unlocked. Spiffy design. Bright screen. Runs Usain Bolt fast. The voice recognition works in virtually any text field

Awkward syncing with computers. Lacks multitouch gestures. Considering its central placement, the trackball is rather underwhelming
