Alright so it has been exactly a week since I received my Nexus One (Puleen Patel Blog Archive Nexus One is here) and so far I must say, there are very few things which I dislike about it. The entire user experience is much faster then the Magic, obviously because of more onboard memory and CPU. The responsiveness of the touch screen is quite good. Sometimes I get too excited and press on the wrong area. Unlike the Magic which had buttons for Call and End, Nexus One does not have these. Similarly, the back, home, and search buttons are not really push buttons but rather pressure sensitive buttons like those on the LG Eve. Only the ones on Nexus are much better and work 100% for the time very effectively. Google Maps and Goggles work flawlessly and recently installed the Google Gesture, which is simply shocking. It's genius is all I can say. I've tried the turn by turn directions on a few occasions and it has worked pretty much both the times when I tried it. The ability to make BT call by pressing the BT earpiece button once is pretty nice to have again. And more importantly the voice dial feature is awesome. I use the voice dial and Gesture search almost all the time. Next for me to try is the voice dictation where it can fill in text by simply speaking what you want to type. I've yet to experiment deeply with this. Just found out about this a few days ago from watching the Google Nexus One support videos. The things I don't like are this: 1. Opera Mini Beta is 100 times faster then the native Browser. I just wish I could make Opera Mini the default browser 2. When in the phone dialer, in the Magic you could type the person's name using the phone pad and the corresponding digit and the OS will find the person for you. This is not there in Nexus One. I don't know if this was an enhancement done by HTC for MAgic or not. BUt this is one thing I really really really miss. 3. The other thing I don't like is that in order to turn the screen on, one has to press the "standby" button at the top almost always. There is no other way to turn the screen on. Not even by pressing the track ball. I find this a bit annoying but nothing I can't train myself to doing! Apart from that I am really enjoying the decision I made to get a Nexus One and am hoping that I win another Nexus One which would be nice so I can hack it and install a custom ROM on it possibly. But most likely, I've been quite successful in convincing my fiance into using the Nexus One as well and she may end up taking the second device which I win. Hopefully I win! I also tried it out with Bell and worked pretty well. I had both Nexus One and a Bell Galaxy running and configured at the same time to check my Gmail and they both got the emails at the same time. That was neat. Over the weekend if I can find some time, I'll head over to the Wind store on Queens Quay and see if they can pop in a Wind SIM card and try out how good their reception and service is. Will keep you all posted. Any one else want to share your experience with the Nexus One whether on Rogers, Bell or Telus, do so here. Cheers!
