Google Nexus One Review

on 12:30 PM

The fifth day in January 2010 is a total historical day in the history of mobile industry. It is the day where Google – the world most powerful search engine network company, stepping beyond boundary into the mobile business by officially launching its genuine masterpiece, the Google Nexus One. Though this act of boundary crossing is pretty much premeditated since Google first developed the Android system and implanted the concept of phone googling among mobile users, the Nexus One still creating hurricane phenomenon within the public and most importantly countless mobile manufacturer companies. IT media workers even named the day as G-day while “worshipping” the advent of Nexus One, most would say Google is self-advertising but it is in fact a reflection of public anxiety and great anticipation towards a mobile product that really listen to its consumers. It is pretty much worrying to see mounting compliments prior a true on-hand review, which might end up with disappointment and underwhelming. Anyway, let’s have a look if the Google Nexus One does deserve enormous respect before we become the next worshipper of Nexus.

Design:

Knowing where it origins from, Google understands how far it excels and that exclude designing Nexus One. Thus, a partnership was established with the HTC to create a handset with physical attraction or literally handsome-looking. First glance on the Nexus One, the smartphone dressed up in two-toned grey color –the housing is in dark grey and there is a light grey metallic edging around the 3.7 inches AMOLED touch screen. However, a little bit more contrast in term of the color scheme will be better to further enhance its elegancy and delightfulness. The smartphone is merely the same size of iPhone with a dimension of 4.56 x 2.36 x 0.47 inches. Holding it on hand, surprisingly it is much lighter as expected. The curvy edges and softy surface are added for palm-friendly features. As predicted, the 3.7 inches AMOLED screen display is the major attraction that makes this handset worthy. 16.7 million colors and a resolution of 800 x 480 pixel, users will sure be stunned with the close-to-real image portraying technology. Beneath the touch screen we find four touch controls – back, menu, home and search, a typical Android way of interface navigation. Right below the touch controls, there is a trackball in the center that can be used as an alternative navigation tool. On the top, there are power button and a 3.5mm volume head jack (that fits to ordinary headphone) sitting at each end. Volume rocker was nicely placed on the left and bottom we found micro USB port and a mic hole. We also found that the 5.0 mega pixel camera lens with its flash light were poorly situated at the rear side of the phone, looking rather awful and impropriate.
