HTC Nexus One experience.

Hi,

 

I'd like to hear your experience with Nexus One or what you know, in the following areas:

 

  1.  What is the model number of the phone that has AT&T 3G bands?
  2.  Does it play Youtube smoothly?
  3.  Overall, is it a reliable phone?
  4.  Is it upgradeable to Gingerbread?

Thank you in advance.

Why Nexus One?  Are you a developer?  If not, the phone is 18 months old, which is ancient in smartphone terms, and more current phones outspec it by a long shot.

 

Even if you want a dev phone, the Nexus S (which comes in an AT&T version) is a much better/more current phone than the Nexus One.    While its made by Samsung, and I usually prefer HTC; I would still probably choose the Nexus S over the N1 due to it being a much newer phone.

 

If not  a developer, how about the Inspire?  Or better yet, a Canada Bell branded Sensation (which has the AT&T 3G bands)?  Or wait until the Holiday is released later this year by AT&T.

 

Yes, the Nexus One is upgradeable to Gingerbread.

I'm looking for a good unlocked smartphone. It seems that Nexus One would not be locked to any carrier. Is that so? How about Nexus S unlocked or not? Any newer unlocked smartphone will fit the bill. BTW, I am not a developer.

You can unlock any smartphone by buying the code off ebay for around $10.  So I would not let that be your main restriction while phone shopping.  You can also buy many phones unlocked from online vendors.  So buy the phone based on the specs, form factor, and features you want.

 

If I needed good Android phone right now, compatible with AT&T's bands, I would go with the Bell Canada Sensation, since I have a preference for HTC, and its a sweet phone.  But it can cost you $700 unlocked and unsubsidized.  The Inspire and Nexus S are good choices, since they can be purchased much cheaper at a subsidized/contract price.
