5.0 out of 5 stars Still a good piece of kit!, 29 July 2012

It may seem a little odd that I submit a review for what could be considered an old phone at such a time when there are newer models from the Nexus line. I bought my ( used ) Nexus one off ebay last year for around £150, at the time they were listed on Amazon at around £280 ( if I remember correctly ). It is a physically well built handset the only problem some people face is the power button breaks inside due to it's design but I think that may be because people are being heavy handed when they power on the device and wake it up. You can get apps off Google Play to work around this and prevent too much use of the power button, it is needed if you have to boot into recovery! As far as I know the N1 is unique in the fact that it has a noise cancelling function that works by having a small mike on the back side of the phone to identify and filter out environmental noise. The bootloader can be unlocked and root access can be gained. This means a custom rom can be flashed. I've been running CyanogenMod since I had the phone and I recently updated from CM 7.1 to CM 7.2. If I was looking to get a new handset now and I only had enough money to buy this I would because I've had enough of 2 year contracts! You can surf the web, play music, videos & games, get a kindle app and read from it, it's got maps, gps, bluetooth, wifi and many other great points. The camera is not very good but that's not unique to a phone of this age. Yes if you mistreat it the screen will scratch but my screen has no visible scratches despite having more than one owner. It calls and receives, sends and receives texts well. The email is good and you can replace the battery and sd card if you want/ need to. I like the Nexus One!
