This is a discussion on what is the biggest weakness of the nexus one? within the Nexus One forums, part of the Google Phones category; Originally Posted by turtle* Originally Posted by greg call quality: people have told me it can be pretty bad, but i;ve not heard it myself ...
Wireless networks are complicated and finicky. My phone has been great. The only places that I have had issues are the well known "dead zones" for AT&T. Same places that I've had problems with every phone I've ever had on their network (with is pretty good elsewhere).
I know about all of the complaints on the "net", but I think that the hardware is fundamentally sound (not perfect, but plenty good enough).
I used AT&T for years. It always had poor reception in my area, but I had a sweetheart deal that they kept grandfathering year to year ($19.95 unlimited everything, w/ $10 data plan)
When AT&T were slow to implement support for N1, I switched to T-Mo. Man, what a difference - my speed is awesome now! But then I hear of awful T-Mo connectivity in New Jersey and Chicago areas, so... location, location, location. The N1 phone is great!
As far as l know every phone has problems and things we don't like about them but over all the nexus one is by far the best phone for me even with the touchy touch screen.
I LOVE this phone. But there are still a lot of things to improve...
- baterry life is terrible imo. I have to charge it nighly, even with lowest brightness and basic apps running.
- as others said, can't see the screen outside on a sunny day.
- as much as I'm really starting to hate apple again, the iphone's keyboard is way more responsive and predictive when typing. The N1 keyboard is completely sporatic sometimes...for example I'll press the "del" key and it keeps typing the letter "z". Messed up! Also, it "seems" as if the keys are too close together, cause I have to retype about every 3 words if I don't type very slow. Doesn't happen at all on my ipod touch keyboard.
But I still wouldn't trade it for anything else I love Google's philosophy and Android system.
