Good: Lightning fast, so is the Internet because it has HSDPA+ 7mb download!! on 02
Bad: Music player could be better quality, but its far from poor.
Comment: Got the phone today and it is truly amazing. I had the original Sony Smartphones M600 and P1, actually loved the unique way they did the Rocker QWERTY Keyboard. But we have come a long way since then, Sony using the operating system Symbain was so so bad, it kept crashing it was worse than windows! Well done to Google for bringing out Android. HSDPA+ on 02 is amazing, makes the internet a dream, getting 7mb download upload 1mb, close to my home internet!
Good: exellent product with cheaper ratw
Bad: extended memory
Comment: i want it at usa rate
Good: Absolutely everything! Super fast and reliable, good user interface
Bad: No SD slot, no removable battery (neither of these has been a problem yet)
Comment: I love this phone. I want to marry this phone, move out to the countryside, and raise a family of little phones. If you are looking around for a new mobile, buy this outright, get a sim-only contract, and then sit back and enjoy the feeling of everything working not just the way you want it to, but the way it should!
Bad: No sdcard
Comment: My 3rd nexus and there's other phone than a nexus.
Good: brilliant value
Bad: too much Google
Comment: Would like sep battery and sd card but managing ok
Would like option to decide what apps options go on the screen
Would like to uninstall unwanted google apps
But, that said, a great phone, say 85%, and I give nothing better than 95% :-)
Good: Pretty much everything so far...speed, handling, screen
Bad: Official accessories - bumper and charging orb lack of availability
Comment: Missed out on he first release, managed to snag one on 6th December. Phone arrived in 2 weeks and i love it!!
Bad: Heavy and dull Screen
Comment: Loved my Samsung S2 but thought I should get this phone as the reviews were so positive.
It is a big, heavy phone - a real heavyweight compared to the S2 or even an IPhone 5 - for me, this aspect is very disappointing.
What was worse was the screen - it's just incredibly dull and lifeless compared to the S2 - you have been warned.
Good: Practically everything!
Bad: Battery life could be better...
Comment: A great phone at any price. Best Android phone, heck best phone hands down!
Good: Quad, 720p, 8mp, 2gbRAM 4.2
Bad: The back gets a bit warm because its glass.
Comment: Coming from an iPhone I can say the Android OS is a few steps ahead of iOS now (this wasn't always the case, but it now is) The phone is beautiful to look at, the sparkles at the back are very subtle. The phone is a beast, extremely powerful and so cheap.
Good: Almost everything; it's the best that android has to offer
Bad: The materials aren't bad, but aren't top notch. Front side is perfect minimalism, back side glass is lovely, but twinkles you'll either love or hate. Personally I'm not their biggest fan, and the plastics around the side look cheap despite being incredibly ergonomic.
Comment: Fantastic phone, barring the above negative, it's flawless. Not just for android, but flawless full stop. If you can get your hands on one, you won't regret it!
