    Found this thread on Nexus Forum.............................

    Post up here if you returned your N1 and for what reason.

    I personally was disappointed with google and how they handled everything. From customer support, ie; weird three way between google htc and tmo, to lack of insurance from the beginning. The battery[​IMG] life and low speaker quality killed it for me too. Yes i understand the screen and other features of the phone eats up the battery but i need to last a full day with out having to put it on the charger at noon ( not exaggerating here) .And i understand that most of the glitches and gripes can be fixed via software upgrades, but i think they shoulda ironed out the kinks more before release.

    I actually wasnt that impressed with the snap dragon either. Many times i managed to lag the phone and make it run choppy. And i dont feel i overloaded it at all. But this is all personal opinion mind you. The N1 is the best smartphone on the market today. but its not for everyone. Also i just feel that i can save that money for something better coming later on. (or bills lol)

    I actually enjoyed the N1 despite the above. I really like the app market. They need to go through the apps though and get rid of the crappy ones. Also SWYPE was great, a true touch screen saver for hard keyboard[​IMG] users like me, but i just cant tear away from the easy to use yet functional BB. Plus the battery life whew!

    Also, with the release of the snapdragon processor i feel that VERY soon there will be dual core processors pushing past the 2GHZ mark. Theres a rumor that the next iphone with have one. ( not that ill ever get one though, cant stand ATT)

    If anyone else that returned there phone and is still around the boards or is about to return it then post up!

    Im so glad I stayed with my DROID, I was considering makeing the switch but Im real Happy

    The only thing is that it's not a good image for Google.

    you already have a dual processor. the droid has a dedicated graphics engine and a dual core CPU. the biggest difference is TI vs. Snapdragon and, of course, the speed.

    moto has always seemed to get one thing right on its phones, and that's the speaker.

    my work neighbor had an N1 and while it's the best HTC device i've seen in a while, i love my DROID for its keyboard, magnetic applications and unique styling.

    Plenty of people have returned the Droid as well. Some people don't give phones a chance, some people get bad phones and don't seem to understand how production works (a certain % of bad anything is acceptable as long as it's within the correct range for companies), and some people are just idiots.

    You post this as if it's supposed to be a good thing for the droid, but it's not. Nexus one and the droid are NOT rivals.

    I read that the Droid doesn't have an actual dedicated GPU. Here's a quote from someone much more knowledgeable than me:

    "The OMAP3430 is a SOC (system on a chip) that's basically all the components of a motherboard and an integrated GPU on a single chip. Why add a second GPU on a second chip instead of specifying a different SOC design? The whole purpose of the SOC is integration (reduced component costs) and reduced power usage. A dedicated GPU goes against the whole design philosophy."

    Exactly... I'm sure N1 is a great phone but it won't be perfect... people WILL return their phones... why focus on the negative?

    If people want to switch let them, doesn't affect me in any way. I don't think a post will stop bad forum members from making posts without searching for topics though.

    Google's customer service is the issue here...there isn't any where near enough. I think they grossly under estimated the consumer market with mobile devices in terms of the customer service needs.

    I'm not flaming the OP, but if the Nexus was the best phone, you would not have taken it back. It's only the best phone if it works. This one still has some wrinkles to get ironed out. It also can only be the best phone if it is on the best phone network, because no matter how fast the processor or how many features you have, if you cannot use it because of a weak network then it isn't the best phone. The best network in the US for most folks is VZW. The best smartphone on VZW right now is the Droid (even though it has it's issues). Next month it may be something else, maybe even the Nexus once it is on VZW. Now if you need a world phone that is a different story. The best phone is all about reliablity, usability (strong network).
