Android 2.1/2.2 vs. Carrier/phone locked Sense UI with a neat little animated weather clock widget. (Update: 2.2 to roll out to Nexus One, Motorola Droid first, Incredible & EVO some unknown time after 2.2 launch) And why are people asking how to turn off Sense UI on the Incredible and other Sense UI phones to get to base Android?:nexusx:

Of course the Incredible will have improved features over the Nexus One, if they didn't, then why would they produce the phone? It's progress, but not necessarily better in all aspects.
So by my count, You win 3 of those arguments.
Nexus One and luvin it
Enomther 2.10.1 Froyo Release
Can you turn off the Sense UI on the Droid Incredible? Mmmmmm ... Not just yet | Android Central
You guys in the US should revolt, stand up against these restrictive practices and stop allowing them to tie a phone to a service provider. It makes no sense. Yes of course the service providers discount the phones (just like they do in the rest of the world) but there's no reason a phone should be exclusive to a provider (they're not in the rest of the world). Personally I always buy my phones without the discount and I save even more money by not being tied to a ridiculously high monthly charge. I'm paying about $11 a month on my phone+flat-rate 3G SIM card. You get a better rate when they haven't had to buy your phone for you.
I'll admit that the Incredible does have some minor wins over the Nexus One, but it's not all wins. It probably scores more points in a comparison, but it's damn close. It's certainly not a new generation or anything. If Nexus One could be considered the 2nd generation of Android phones, then Incredible is 2.01 (very small increment).
o- Nexus One running CyanogenMod 6.0
o- Samsung Galaxy Tab running stock Froyo (update: running Gingerbread and virtually useless)
The Nexus One does one thing perfectly, and that is, push the limits of what Android OS can do, and then pushes it some more. So many people on this forum have rooted their phones to unlock additional potential of this phone, OC, UV, multi color trackball, Tethering, Extra RAM, Custom roms, OS tweaks, but yet still haven't unlocked all the secrets this phone has, JIT, Flash 10.1, FM receiver, Wifi N, etc. We've all memorized the system stats for this phone, and the photos of all the key components, and it's a list of who's who in phone components. This wasn't done just as a way to put out a phone, it was done with deliberate thought put into each feature. Period (note to Google again, speaker sucky & antenna placement bad)
There will always be imitators, and arguably the Nexus One is an imitator of the iPhone, but it pushed phone development and OS forward. I don't want the Nexus One to be the top phone next year. If that happens, then we haven't learned or progressed. It's easy for others to bash the Nexus One (online failure, slow seller, problematic, etc) because that's what people want them to believe. But by doing so, it brings out the good and the bad, and that is a great thing. Keep the good, fix the bad. I love showing off my Nexus One, and disproving all the bs that people are led to believe about it, and showing them how great the Android OS truly is. :nexusx:
Oh and finally, I love that I can talk and text/surf at the same time. I'd never make it through long phone conversations with my girlfriend otherwise.
Comparisons between phones once purchased is quite pointless. The electronic device dilemma is that a couple generations of improvements are always near release at one's time of purchase. So bragging points today is merely setting the stage for the words we need to eat tomorrow.
Then there's always the hyperbole of the new product release info. A point is the 8 mg camera vs N1's 5 mg. Haven't heard anyone prove it's any better. I've had my N1 since January. I've learned how to make the battery last all day, also how I don't like the switch on top that is easily tapped to turn the phone in my pocket or holder on and run the battery down. I know most of the phone's features and still don't normally use all of them.
If you believe you have a superior phone, great. I have the N1, I'm happy with it. I have 3 grown sons. 2 of them have the Iphone, 1 uses Blackberry. They enjoy the features of their phones, think they are excellent. None of us claim ours is best, you can't compare them feature for feature. They do many of the same features differently. I'm the only one who needs to think mine is best. Enjoy what you have. It's impossible to keep up.

Don't see anything in a newer phone that gives me a temptation to leave my Nexus One!
