Android phones are all the rage. If you're not an Apple-devotee, which I'm not, then an Android phone seems like the alternative.
I'd previously been a Nokia user, and I've liked all their phones. N80, N95, N97, N900.
People kept mocking me for using Nokias, and it's true, there aren't a lot of apps for them.
So I bought a Nexus S.
It's very "blingy". And it's nice and new, and lovely, but has a few glaring omissions in comparison to the N97 and/or N900. I'll list them here.
- The SatNav. It's not as good as the free NavTeq that came with Nokia's high-end phones. It doesn't have speed - sorry - safety cameras on there, it doesn't warn you when you're going over the speed limit, etc. Also, it doesn't have "proper" voices - just some synthesised voice.
- It doesn't have a file manager built in
- It doesn't have a zoom on the camera (photo or video). Also, the back button is annoying close to the "take picture" button on the screen
- The SMS notifications are rubbish
- I can't send files to it from my PC via Bluetooth
These are what I've found in a week or so of using it. I am most disappointed by the SatNav out of that list.
