    How is the speaker in the Nexus One? Are you happy with it for speakerphone use? How about listening to a podcast?

    Thanks.

    It's not very good at all. My previous cheapie Motorolla dumb phone sounded much better.

    Sorry :(

    The speaker blows. It's not loud enough and sounds too tinny....way out of it's league. The iPhone has a better speaker, that shows how bad this speaker really is. I've never missed a call with a phone in my pocket before, with this phone I miss them all the time. I'm in a noisy envoironment at work, but still.....

    Not much to bitch about this phone.. but the speaker is def not it's strong point. You do get used to it after a while and it's doable for podcasts. Not sure if that helps you.

    it's the one hardware change I would make to the N1: a premium speaker

    The one in it now is not that good

    i too have to say the speaker isn't the best in the world, it's definitely not the loudest but i don't care, i really love this phone!

    Thanks for the information, everyone. I'm trying to decide on a replacement for my G1 and I was hoping for a better speaker on my next phone.

    Coming from an iPhone I was surprised at how bad the speaker is. Although, like one poster stated above, you do get used to it. Doesn't really bother me that much anymore and I don't miss calls because of it. I would definitely like a better speaker but I wouldn't let it sway me from buying it again. Everything else about the N1 is so much better than my iPhone was.
