…there wouldn’t be the issue with its connectivity.
I’ve tested the Nexus now for 12 hours and I never had a smartphone that was so fast, had such a brilliant display, a perfect usability and such a very flexible and modern operating system.
And I had or have them all: iPhone 3G, Magic, Dream, Droid, some Blackberrys and many Nokias.
But yesterday I also tested the connectivity of the Nexus in two large German cities and compared it to the Motorola Droid .
I drove with my car through the streets both handsets connected with the same provider.
And the result was: The Droid often offered HSDPA or 3G while the Nexus was only connected via 3G or EDGE.
Most of the time the Droid operated on one connectivity level better than the Nexus, and I’ve installed the given 3G Nexus Android patch before.
Due to the fact we are talking about smartphones whose nature is being permanently connected to the internet these results are, in my eyes, very important.
But I don’t believe (as the link above documents as well) this issue is related to Android or Google. It’s a hardware issue and thus a problem of HTC (the reason why the Nexus 2 might become Motorola device, who knows?)
