The Google Nexus One was rumored to be a device that would revolutionize the overwhelming stronghold mobile operators have over their clients by totally bypassing carrier-voice calls and enabling users to make VoIP only calls thus freeing consumers from mobile operator s "money-grabbing" constraints. The Nexus One is built by HTC with a lot of input from Google and it runs Android 2.1. The reported changes are a touch of 3D in the app tray, a bit of WebOS gadgetry with a preview of all homescreen pages done card-style. Preloaded are Google Navigation (in the US) and the new Google Goggles, which identifies objects by using the camera and brings up relevant information. The device is not locked ad works on T-Mobile network in the US. Engadget have unearthed a report from the FCC about the Nexus One passing their tests. The interesting bit here is that it has quad-band GSM support and 1700/1900MHz 3G support, which covers T-Mobile indeed.
Representing the next stage in smartphone development, the unlocked Google Nexus One phone from HTC offers supercharged power with one of the fastest processors currently available in a smartphone, a 3.7-inch super LCD touch display, and access to all your contacts and most important data from a variety of Google tools via the Android 2.1 operating system. With integrated Google technology, the Nexus One brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services millions use every day, including Google Search by Voice, YouTube and Picasa.
The Google Nexus One integrates with all of your favorite Google applications--from e-mail and calendar to Google Voice and YouTube.
The 5-megapixel camera on the back also
captures DVD-quality widescreen video
(see a schematic of all ports and controls).
The Nexus One is unlocked and will recognize SIM cards from any mobile service provider using the GSM standard. The Nexus One's antenna supports four GSM radio frequencies (850/900/1800/1900) and three 3G/UMTS Bands (2100/AWS/900). These cover most major GSM mobile providers worldwide, including T-Mobile in the United States, but not the 850 MHz 3G band used by AT&T. The Nexus One will, however, deliver 2G/EDGE speeds on these networks, and of course supports Wi-Fi as well.

* Outstanding call quality

* Very quiet ringer and alarm, even at highest volume
CALL QUALITY: 10/10
Call quality is superlative.
Brightness, color reproduction, resolution and pixel density are all good. The screen itself feels extremely fragile, however, and I would not feel safe without a screen protector on it.
CPU/GPU AND WIFI PERFORMANCE: 8/10
The CPU and GPU handle nearly everything with aplomb. Wifi reception improves with Gingerbread, but range is still limited.
I was pleasantly surprised by the high quality of the images the Nexus One produces, particularly outdoors without a flash.
The wired headset included with the Nexus One is above average when used for voice calls.
Upgrading to Gingerbread will reduce power consumption for most tasks, but even then battery life is only average compared to similar devices. Battery temperature sometimes exceeds 45C (113F).
BUILD QUALITY, DURABILITY AND APPEARANCE: 2/10
It requires a LOT of pressure to release the battery cover, and I can feel the screen buckling under my fingers every time. The Nexus One is very fragile but overall looks good. The silver paint started coming off after one week of gentle use, and it malfunctions with high-heat activities (e.g. GPS and 3G internet). Add at least $30 to the cost to buy quality screen and body protectors.
EXTERNAL SOUND AND AUDIO: 2/10
The external speaker is just terrible. Even at full volume, it's mostly a garbled mess of quiet sound.
The Nexus One performs most tasks well but won't last long if you aren't especially careful with it.
FOR YOUR REFERENCE, ALL THE INFORMATION BELOW means NOTHING since Amazon is not authorize dealer (HTC repair department told me). Very disappointed. And the phone is sold directly from Aamzon.com LLC directly!
Nexus One Warranty Information
Returns and warranty: Warranty
How long does the warranty cover the phone?
Your warranty coverage depends on where you live:
European Union: the warranty coverage extends twenty-four (24) months from the date of original purchase.
All other locations (including the United States): the warranty coverage extends twelve (12) months from the date of original purchase
What kind of things are NOT covered by the warranty?
The warranty does not cover physical damage to the surface of your Nexus One, including but not limited to cracks or scratches on the screen or camera lens. The warranty also does not provide coverage for issues related to third-party applications you've installed. What kind of things can void the warranty coverage?
Here are a few examples of actions that void the warranty coverage:
rough handling of the device
exposure of the device to extreme conditions
tampering with the device, including removal or defacing of the serial number, IMEI number, or water indicator
unauthorized opening or repair of the device
tampering with or short-circuiting the battery
unlocking the bootloader using the fastboot program
For a complete list, refer to the warranty card included with your Nexus One and also available below. How does the warranty process work?
HTC offers two options for the warranty process:
Device swap: The device swap is the quickest way to get a working phone again. A new device will be sent to you, together with a box for returning the defective device. You should remove the SIM card, the battery, and the microSD card from the defective phone, insert them into the new device, and return the defective phone in the box provided.
If you have engraved your phone with a personal message, the device that you receive will not include the engraving, and the engraving on the defective device will not be sent back to you. If you want to keep your engraving, you can opt for the express repair option.
Express repair: With this option, you send the defective device to the HTC service center. HTC will perform the repair and send you back your device, including the original engraving.
How can I initiate a warranty repair?
The first step is to request a ticket number by calling HTC, the number for which can be found in the Service & Repair section of the HTC website. An HTC representative will guide you through the process and either (a) arrange for the delivery of the swap device or (b) send you shipping instructions to an email address you provide (if you prefer the express repair model).
What happens if I send my device for warranty repair, and it turns out the defect is not covered by the warranty?
If the HTC service center detects that the device is not covered by the warranty, an HTC representative will contact you to determine what to do next. You can choose to pay for the repairs (the HTC representative will provide you a quote), or you can opt to have HTC send you back the device, in which case your credit card will be charged the round-trip shipping fees, as well as an examination fee of $28.
HTC does not consider Amazon a legitimate market place.
Amazon has worked with me on this issue and at this point has provided me with a return label and a promise that they will reimburse me with a fair amount, which I consider to be good business.
***Amazon is a GREAT place to buy and you should be confident that they stand behind their products
***HTC does not stand behind their products
