Nexus One Review: Apparently unbiased reviews don’t exist

The Google Nexus One is one of the most talked about phones over the last few weeks, and yesterday we touched on the Nexus One compared to LG’s GW990 and Apple’s iPhone, plus some information on the future including 4G. We also heard about the “Motorola Shadow” and some rumors claimed that this phone might be the Google Nexus Two.

Today we wanted to show you another Nexus One review that goes into details that other reviews have not covered. Uber Gizmo have wrote a long review about the most anticipated Android phone ever, and their aim was to find out if the Nexus One lived up to this claim.

Technical highlights of the Nexus One include a 1Ghz Qualcomm QSD 8250 “Snapdragon” processor, 5 Megapixel camera with LED Flash, 4GB MicroSD storage, 512MB RAM, GSM/3.5G, GPS, 3.7″ 800×480 AMOLED display, 1400mAH battery, and 720×480 video capture at 20fps+.

The video below this post is just one that Uber Gizmo provided in their review, it looks at the physical design of the Nexus One, and compares it to the iPhone 3GS and a Droid/Milestone. Take a look at the video below this post or view their review for more videos and details.

Uber Gizmo found basic phone features well covered, and that dialing a number is pretty much like other Android 2.x phones, placing a call was very easy to do. The wireless reception problems claimed with the Nexus One were not found by the reviewer, they said “at no point, was the Blackberry 9700 clearly better or Worse than the Nexus One”. Pointing out that those that had reception issues may not have been used to “T-Mobile’s spotty coverage”.

Head over to Uber Gizmo to read details on security, email, photo and video capture, multitasking, entertainment features, the Google Voice keyboard, mapping, and a lot more. It’s also good to see that the reviewer points out their review may be biased; they said, “I firmly believe that unbiased reviews don’t exist”. Would you agree with this statement, and let us know what you thought of the Nexus One and their review?
