A Nexus One review

     Since I seem to be one of the first to get this kind of phone, I thought I'd post a review of it.  I just got the new Google Nexus One phone.  If you haven't heard of it, it's an expensive phone that can also do all kind of other things.  So far, I've made one phone call on it.  The phone part works ok, I guess, but since I don't talk on the phone all that much, as long as I can hear the other person and they can hear me, that would mean it works good to me.  It sounds ok, and is pretty clear.

     As for the other things it does, it didn't come with any intructions!  I just had to figure things out.  The camera part of it works pretty good, I just can't seem to take any pictures of myself.  That's a bit of a pain in the butt.  And connecting it to my computer is confusing.  I know I can transfer pictures to the computer, from the phone, but I don't seem to know how to transfer any pictures to the phone!  I don't even understand what's happening when they're connected!  (Besides that, my card reader on the computer broke!  I'll need to take it back to Bestbuy to have it fixed, but I hate not having my computer!) And speaking of which:

     The online stuff works pretty well!  I can check my email, surf the web, watch different tv shows and clips from all kinds of networks, including Showtime, and it pretty much seems to run just as fast as my regular computer!  Very nice!  The touch sensitivity could be better, and a few times I was trying to select something and instead it went back to the homepage.  And I'll admit, there was once I wanted to throw the phone at a wall, but all in all, it does work pretty well.  It won't be so bad when I take my computer in because I can use the phone while it's gone being fixed.

     The bad part about this phone is the battery.  It seems like I need to charge the damned thing after every time I use it!  You'd think with all the new technology in the world, they could come up with a battery that would run my phone more than 2 hours!  Actually, I don't know how long it'll run before it goes dead, I'll have to try that.  I know it won't be too long, though.  I can use it to surf the web at home for about an hour and use half the battery power. 

     So, in conclusion, I like this phone!  I think it works well, and really like the fact that when I now get a text message, my phone says in this sexy, female voice, "Master, I have mail for you!"  I also have ringtones from old tv shows like Knightrider, and The A Team.  I have the Oompa Loompa song as one of the rings for a person.  (Too bad I don't actually get that many phone calls!)
