Will Google Nexus One Be The New Benchmark For Smartphones?

Released in January 2010, the HTC manufactured Google Nexus One has been one of the most anticipated mobile phone releases since the Apple iPhone. A plethora of advanced applications and its Android operating system, coupled with the HTC built quality, the Google Nexus One is sure to be a hit. The fact that internet giants Google have put their name on a phone indicates that there will surely be no compromises with this handset.


The Google Nexus One measures 119×59.8mm and is just 11.5mm thick. It weighs in at 130g so is comfortable to hold and operate. The large 3.7” AMOLED capacitive touchscreen displays 480×800 pixels in WVGA resolution offering unparalleled display clarity and brightness. An accelerometer is built into the phone which senses when the phone has been tilted and rotates the onscreen image accordingly so it can be viewed in both portrait and landscape forms. Trackball navigation is included as support to the touchscreen navigation, similar to that found on several Blackberry Models.


Users are alerted to incoming calls and messages via vibration and ringing with the option to use MP3 music files as ringtones. A speakerphone is included allowing hands free communication. A 3.5mm audio jack can be used for hands free kits as well as listening to music with a pair of compatible headphones.


Internal memory in the Google Nexus One is 512MB RAM and 512MB ROM. A microSD slot is found on the handset with 4GB of memory included. This can, however, be expanded to up to 32GB allowing plenty of storage for media files, applications, contact info and other files.


A wide range of connectivity options is available with the handset. GPRS and EDGE are included, both in Class 10 versions. HSDPA is available at speeds of up to 7.2Mbps and HSUPA at up to 2Mbps. WiFi access allows users to take advantage of various hotspots at various locations around the country. Bluetooth v2.1 is installed as standard enabling direct transfer of files and data between Bluetooth compatible devices.


The Google Nexus One is equipped with a camera boasting 5MP which operates at a pixel resolution of 2560×1920 pixels. Features of the camera include autofocus and LED flash, smile detection and the increasingly popular geo-tagging facility whereby users can tag the location where a picture was taken. Video can be recorded in D1 at 720×480 pixels at a rate of 20 frames per second. Pictures and videos can be directly uploaded to YouTube and Picasa via applications which allow direct access to these sites.


A whole host of available features make it easy to see why there has been so much hype about this phone. A range of music and video file formats are supported by the phone’s media player. These can be easily transferred to and from a computer via the microUSB (v2.0) port. Extra features include noise cancellation with dedicated microphone, digital compass and voice memo recorder.


This range of applications and software requires some very capable hardware. A powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8250 1 GHz processor certainly fits the bill, and adequately compliments the Android v2.1 operating system.


Many will see the HTC Google Nexus One as one of the first major rivals to Apple’s iPhone 3G and its easy to see why.
