    Question Refurbish N1 vs Brand-New N1?

    Hi Guys,

    My Nexus One was replaces by HTC due to many hardware problems. They contact Google and asked them for a replacement. After 2 weeks, I got it (Finally -.-). The person in HTC Service Centre told me it is blame new and now refurbish. I wonder how to check if it is really brand new. Any idea? thanks

    dang auto correct! I understood your post nonetheless as I am fluent in typonese lol

    Not quite sure how to determine if it's in fact a brand new unit rather than refurbished. Maybe someone knows how... I'd like to know this aswell.

    I am sure there is a way but I am not exact as to what it is - I think under the battery there will be a sticker that isn't there on an original device - But I am not 100%

    Typonesse love it! And when you got your replacement it should have stated refurbished in the paperrwork. I believe. Companies also use to put refurbished stickers on the products.

    Recall that the new Nexus has the LCD screen, and your old one likely had the amoled.

    Seriously? I want Amoled

    When i take the new N1 from HTC services centre, my new N1 is without battery and battery cover, no box etc. The service person just nice to find me a new battery cover.

    Yeah they do not send the batteries or back cover on some replacements. You would just use your battery and cover. Then return the non functioning one back.

    Wow. That's a pretty big omission. I would NOT be happy about that.
