Android in Google Nexus

Philip K. Dick may be happy to know that his legacy is safe. Despite the complaints of his descendants, Google has not done anything to discredit the Nexus One of the names, shared with the androids in Dick's novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep." In any case, the search giant may even have given a higher status, with a new generation are not as familiar with the book.

But first things first. The Nexus One we're talking about here is not a robot - which is a mobile phone created, marketed and sold by Google with a little help from HTC. It runs Android OS company, and - like all the phones in other high profile that is released - has been labeled an "iPhone Killer". But the big question is - can cope with the waves of hype? 

A 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen display with multi-touch, which operates at a luxury hotel of 480 x 800 pixels, is the center of attention. That is 252.15 pixels per inch - a very respectable density that ensures that the circles on the screen actually look like circles - not as irregular approaches. It is clear, bright, even in sunlight, and video content looks fantastic, with a contrast ratio of 100,000:1. There is a sliding scale to adjust the brightness, or an automatic option to read the ambient light and set accordingly - was found which suggested a somewhat lower here, but has the advantage of saving battery life.

The rest of the outside of the Nexus One is plastic. There is a mechanical scroll wheel on the bottom, which comes in handy while editing text, but rarely otherwise. Below are four touch-sensitive areas of the screen at the back, menu, home and search buttons. There is a volume control on the side, a power button on top next to the 3. 5 mm headphone jack and a Micro-USB connector for charging on the bottom. Also at the bottom there are four connection points for the Nexus One follow spring - more on that shortly.

It feels solid in your hand, but it looks amazing. It does not look as good as the iPhone. No power on, not going to blow people see it and do not know what it is. We're not saying it looks terrible - no - it just seems functional, and that's not good enough. The Nexus One has more in common with the typical design U.S. smartphone it does for other Android HTC models - all curved edges everywhere, in the same way that the hero is garbage compared to CDMA GSM one. Maybe it's just that we miss the chin. 

Inside, the brains of the operation is 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon ARM processor QSD 8250. It powerfully fast. If you are upgrading from a previous version of the Android phone, as the hero or magic, or even an iPhone 2G or 3G, then you will find it tremendously more sensitive. If you are upgrading from an even older device, you'll be surprised. It's not perfect - is the occasional split second too late - but as soon as we have seen on a phone to date. It is roughly equivalent to the iPhone 3G excellent zipping around web pages, view photos, or just browse through the menus.

It comes with 512 MB of internal memory and a 4GB microSD card for storage. Unfortunately, due to the limitations of Android applications can not be stored on the SD card - have to sit in memory, which means that you are entirely likely to run out of space if you download additional content crazy. This is a problem, but not one that is unique to the Nexus One, it actually has more storage capacity than most competitors Android. MicroSD card slot can accept cards up to 32GB, if you go crazy loading music on it.

Unlike previous versions of Android, the music player in the Nexus One is really impressive. It looks great, is intuitive, and if you do not like you can always download one you like - a key advantage of Android on the iPhone, which refuses to allow third party applications, music, browsers and other applications that Apple provides out of the box. Applications of the Nexus One camera and navigation are considerably improved over previous versions of Android too. 

While this is not a review of Android itself, it is worth mentioning a bit about the platform for those who are not very familiar with it. Android is a platform built by Google and is free for manufacturers to put on the phones. The idea behind this is to significantly improve the experience for consumers on their phones to use the mobile web more. More people using the mobile web means more people will show Google ads - that's how the company makes its money from Android.

Therefore, the company has tried to create the best experience possible, and has done a good job. If you are a user of Google's suite of web applications - calendar, mail, contacts, etc, then you will find everything you immediately set-up for you. Even if you're not, it's trivial to get your email and data synchronized and stored in the cloud. The device has little support, because everything is kept on Google's servers. The only exception is for images taken with the camera - you have to do backups manually.

But while Android experience is excellent, far beyond most of its competitors, it remains a bit more complex to use than the iPhone. Although it has a number of important advantages over the iPhone - multitasking, support for Flash, much more customization of user interface - the compensation is not so easy to use for technophobes. You may want to think twice before recommending an Android device with his grandmother.

Turning more specifically to the Nexus One, which runs the 2.1 version of Android. Some have criticized the Android platform for the deployment of as many phones as quickly as any other device you buy is relatively obsolete within 6 months - such is the pace of development. With many phone contracts for 18 months or more, getting stuck to a phone that is quickly fired can be frustrating - just ask the legions of HTC Hero owners have not been updated since Android 1.5. That could be a consideration for you, especially with the desire to HTC on the horizon, seeking to wrest the crown of the best dogs in the Droid Nexus.
