This is a discussion on a little disapointed with my new N1 within the Nexus One forums, part of the Google Phones category; Originally Posted by chapinlove google killllllllllllllllll nexus one with FRF91 FRF85B was perfect You don't need to spam this thread, and you are wrong....
People will be amazed how a simple hard reset can fix alot of issues they may be experiencing.
As far as closing apps, just press your home button. The os will kill it eventually. If that doesn't satisfy you then press the home button until you reach the home screen, this will kill the app. If you are in the browser, then press the menu button and press exit. This will close any windows you were in.
If you are an Apple fanboy and think that the iphone 4 is a better phone look at all the specs objectively, you will realize that the only advantage the iphone has over Android at the moment is screen resolution. The Samsung Galaxy S will neutralize this advantage though.
I believe you will grow to love your N1 as I have. 2.2 has made a great phone an excellent phone.
Second that... I've stopped using the AppKiller, and let Android do its thing.
Also, you can't blame the crappy headphones on the Nexus, EVERY device comes with substandard headphones, including the ones that came with my iPod and Zune. I long ago replaced them with $70 Sony's, and there is a world of difference.
Nexus One: "Hold it any way you want to!"
My last cell phone was a sony ericsson and the sound quality of the audio player and the earphones was great. I hope they improve the bild-in audio player soon to suport an equalizer and I am getting better earphones.
Exactly my point. People should buy phones that fit their needs not what's in or hot. If you want a phone directly associated with music or have great sound quality, get an iPhone or Sony (walkman). They what their phones are specialized for and why other features of the phones are trash.
There's reason why Nokia E series (business oriented) and N Series (Media oriented) phones were made. There's reason why Blackberry are the preferred corporate business phones, etc etc.
People have to understand that not everyone phone is designed to function like ever other phone. People need to reevaluate why they are buying phones and get one that is specific to their needs. Now don't get me wrong, the N1 is an all around great media phone, but it's main focus is not music playback, but all around mulitmedia. Want better quality get better quality MP3 installed nothing less than 192, go 256 or higher, spend for better quality headphones with volume a volume booster. But don't blame the phone for something it's not specialized in. You can expect a HTC phone to compete with iPhone or Sony when it comes to music quality on a phone.
That what makes Android so great. You can get a Sony Xperia and still get the Android love with a Sony quality audio.
But it doesn't matter if it's open or not. When it's in the the background it is not running. It's idle until you open it up again. Stop believing the hype of open apps slowing down your phone.
If you got 5mb of open memory left, open apps are the least of your problems.
I do like my N1, but is it that hard to put an equalizer on that audio player? I don't believe so.
And skype, is not that my N1 can't do it, they don't allow it, and I paid more to have my N1 unlocked, I should have more features.
About killing apps, again, why is the trouble of putting an exit buttons on apps? If you don't need it anymore, close it. Is just common sense.
I really think that buying a better headphone is going to solve my first problem, I won't probably need an equalizer with a good headphone (but it should be there)
Long story short: there is room for improvement, lots of improvements.
P.S.: What is thw swipe apps that everybody uses?
