Cracked Nexus One

Don’t get us wrong. There’s surely plenty of perfectly content Nexus One users out there without a care in the world. It’s not all rainbows and butterflies for Google’s self-proclaimed “superphone,” though — far from it, actually.

The problems that have been plaguing the Nexus One since its very beginnings, including 3G connectivity issues and surprisingly crack-prone screens, have seemingly reached a crescendo as of late, even inspiring our friends over at Phandroid to publish a rather comprehensive (and lengthy) laundry list of issues that users are reporting.

We’ll let you head on over to Phandroid yourself for the full list, but here’s a few of the stand-out issues widely reported with the Google-branded device:

  • 3G connectivity issues
  • WiFi connectivity issues
  • Cracked screens after an ordinary stay in a pants pocket
  • Unresponsive touch screen
  • Low earpiece and ringer volume

Surely if you’re one of those unlucky souls proudly whipping out your Nexus One from your favorite pair of jeans only to be greeted by a healthy crack across the screen, you may agree that your $179 or $529 (as the case may well be) investment isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be.

  • The only true issue is the 3G connectivity when you place your hand over a certain area but the other issues are not real ones, I’m sure the isolated “cracked screen” incident didn’t just happen, the guy must have fell on his phone and was trying to get a free replacement, also there isn’t anything wrong with the touch screen people just touch the screen with the palm of their hand with out noticing. No one can blame wirefly for trying to rip on a phone they can’t make money with.

  • Like any other phone.
    ..or maybe wirefly cant sell this phone and make money off it.
