I don't have trouble texting with the nexus one. for one hand typing, swype is excellent. I prefer stock for two hand typing tho.
However I must say in my experience, a physical keyboard is still better for texting. If texting is the one most important thing to you then I would consider getting a phone with a physical keyboard. Otherwise, I think all the other great things of the nexus one makes up for it.
Also agree that the voice input is great for small sentences. Any more than that and it gets confused. Best to hold it horizontally in order to avoid bumping other keys, but the suggested words feature speeds things up a lot and is excellent.
People do under-utilize the voice input. It is extremely accurate and a breeze to use. Very useful when driving, which lessens the risk of a vehicle accident =).
Came to Nexus One from G1... Initially, the missing physical keyboard was a drag. But the touchscreen texting is awesome, and the Voice recognition is utterly AMAZING!!! I use voice recog. much more than screen now. It is SOOOO amazing!
Another reason to love my N1!!!
Wow!! I just tried this feature for the first time and it works incredibly well. I didn't even know that I had it, can you imagine? I've had my phone since its release in January! I can't tell you how hard it's been attempting to text while driving lol. There must be a zillion other features that I have that I don't know about or know how to use. Now how do I download & listen to music? Sheesh, sounds like an entirely new topic of discussion for us technically challenged users.People do under-utilize the voice input.
