Nexus One vs. iPhone 3GS

Google has released it’s own Native devil powered by Android, better known as Nexus One. Initially, it was given out to Google employees to play around and spread the word. The hype was well built, brought few promising features.
As one would expect from Google, the Phone is pretty good on specs. But how does it compare with the Best Phone we know of?
Here is a heads-on comparison with iPhone 3GS drilling down Feature-by-feature:

UPDATE: Let’s have a look at the them in the latest Leaked Video:

Update 3: Gaming and 3D Performance (iPhone 3GS beats Nexus One)

Now, Do you doubt on Nexus one’s Speed? Clearly beats iPhone (except for the browsing experience, iPhone 3GS beats Nexus one badly at browsing and Gaming). The User experience is still immature as compared to iPhone, but hardware has its edge over Apple. Ofcourse, Android needs some work before the graphics and 3D rendering comes upto the level of iPhone.

    This is not a 100% accurate comparison spec sheet. How is the Battery for the Nexus One CLEARLY better than the 3GS but they said it was N/A? Also, there's a typo with the number of programs on each, why is it “1,00,000″ apps on 3GS? Isn't it supposed to be “1,000,000″ or “100,000″? And one more thing, How is it a “Tie” between OS' when the 3GS' UI isn't really a OS? What phones other than iPhone, is the iPhone OS on? That sounds Proprietary to me so how is it a Tie? Android is a True OS, iPhone OS is not. Nexus One should've won that just off the fact that Android is a Real OS. There's more issues with this spec sheet than that but I won't get into that. I need a Full Unbiased Spec Sheet also.

      Battery quoted as 1300mAh doesn't necessarily mean it will give a longer life. 1300mAh with 1GHz snapdragon + larger screen will give you a shorter life than iPhone. Practical aspects needs to be seen before comparing them.
      Regarding th e OS vs. OS: If I declare iPhone OS (Mac OS Mobile) superior, it's unfair. Android is fairly mature. Both OS are equally competent. With Term “OS” I pointed to features, performance, kernel, stability, APIs. UI is distinguisher among them but that's always customizable. Rooted android can be more friendly than iPhone.

        The Nexus One is OLED though which may compensate, at least somewhat, for the bigger screen as far as power consumption.

          For the battery, Nexus one is clear winner now. Earlier it was rumored to be lower ~ 1300. 1400 makes more sense.

      How does not being on other phones/being proprietary preclude iPhone from being an OS exactly? I mean, I guess the OS is OS X if you wanna get technical right?

    Wow you got so many things wrong here it's hard to know where to start. First, the screen is 3.7 inches not 4.3, the battery is supposedly 1400mAh, is does NOT have muti-touch, there is no info on the 720p video recording. Still, better hardware than the current iPhone by far.

    Why the heck is “Cloud Sync” N/A? Google syncs contacts, email, calendar, for free, flawlessly (in my experience anyway), out of the box. I can't speak to the quality of MobileMe, but it's certainly more expensive.

    So this great processor and graphics chip will be hindred by the fact you can only put apps on the onboard (512mb) memory.

    No developer's going to waste money writing a game that can use these specs when they can't even load it onto the device!

    This isn't an article, its an advertisement, probably ghost written by Google marketing ghouls. It sure looks like an iPhone, never mind the wallpaper. I was thinking how not being 1st Microsoft is going to have to navigate the ever increasing minefield of mobile design patents; it looks like Google may not have adequately considered the numerous patents Apple holds.

    As for *kof* performance comparisons this is a year old device being compared to a new one. I'm pretty sure Apple's iPhone developers didn't spend 2009 in a coma…

    Why does this comparison not include the LAME 512mb Nexus flash drive (which is used for the OS drive and App drive) compared to the IPhone 16gb and 32gb flash drive????? This makes the Nexus worth about $2 for me. Lame just Lame. I do not have an IPhone because ATT's network is LAME. Looks like i am going to be one of those users that loves the IPhone as a device and deal with the crappy network. All that Nexus processor and video power and LAME flash drive space. Nexus – $180 & $530 for a LAME 512mb flash drive. What a waste when everyone now a days wants to install as many and high quality apps. I will never own a Nexus with this LAME 512mb flash drive. LAME. Can't believe Google would endorse such a LAME OS drive in a duper expensive device. When is someone going to actually do it as right as Apple did it. more flash drive space is not rocket science now days.

        I just got a Nexus One and a 32GB card for way less than the Iphone 3gs 32GB.

        Then add in the fact that my unlimited voice and data plan costs $79/month vs ATT's $164 it's not even close. I can buy this phone and pick up a new unlocked Nexus every 8 months and still spend less than with an iPhone.

          The only reason why your “unlimited” plan costs less is cause t-mobile's network is severely limited. I'd want to pay less too for less network.

          With all the moaning about AT&T's service coverage how come nobody points out that this is the same network that t-mobile users HOPE to roam on if ATT plays nice and lets them?

          Nexus One could have been a viable contender were it available for Verizon and/or ATTs 3G frequencies. As is it isn't even in the ballpark with an iPhone.

            1) Price isn't really going to be the contender here once it comes to AT&T.
            2) Apple does have the large built in flash drive, but I'm not sure about the price for the nexus one with the SD card. But i think the SD card is much better cuz its more customizable. You don't have to buy a whole other phone if you don't have enough room.
            3) The nexus one is coming out in more companies. They are coming out with it for verizon in the spring and in Europe sometime later. So it also has a bunch of companies that have it, not just AT&T's, which I have heard isn't very good.
            4) There are only more apps for the iPhone because it was out for longer and because there is probabaly like 20,000 apps of the same thing.
            5) I say the nexus one. I have used an iPhone and an iPod Touch and they both are very good, but from what i see the nexus one is better.
            6) In the paragraph it says that the iPhone beats the nexus one in browsing when i just saw a video on it showing that the nexus one beat the iPhone in speed for everything.
            7) Why does everyone insist on saying lame? its really annoying.

          I've got a Nexus One and have been looking for a 32GB card for it. I'm curious about your claim since there isn't a 32GB microsd card on the market yet. In fact, it was only a couple weeks ago that Samsung announced the very 32GB microsd onto the market.

          Who's the maker of your card?

No pueden compararlo con el 3G S puesto que es mucho más veloz incluso trayendo menor procesador y menor memoria ram..

      I wouldn't deal with the ATT crappy network just for a few extra bells and whistles. Trust me, i have an iphone and love it! this problem is the ATT network is BRUTAL.. i.e. people call me the phone doesn't ring and goes straight to voicemail. And most critical: a person will call me, leave a message and I won't receive the voicemail for 6 hours later!!! I really got burnt in both social and business situations. Not to mention, bad coverage is certain areas. At the end of the day, they are PHONES and if calls are critical stay with the best coverage…. If the iPhone ever went to Verizon I'm there but until then I'd rather have a free phone on the Verizon network.

        It really depends on which city you are in for service. AT&T is continuously upgrading and adding new sites to take care of the network issues in some cities. I'm in Dallas and never had any issues with AT&T Network nor the iPhone. BTW: If iPhone went to Verizon and if they experience the same success in new users sign ups, there network would not be able to handle it as AT&T has with the amount of data usage which went up like 500% since the iPhone came out. Verizon network uses a dead end CDMA technology instead of GSM and that was one of the main reasons why Apple selected AT&T as there partner.

      Because you can always add 32gb memory from ebay for practically nothing from china. But on iphone you can't add any memory so you would have to pay up front though the nose and once full you would have to delete. Nexus one you can change the memory and battery as many times as you want. I bough 3 batteries from ebay for $18 and 16gb memory for $2 on auction and I'm set. with my iphone I was not using my phone because i was actually afraid of running out of battery at the end of day

Nexus – $180 & $530 for a LAME 512mb flash drive. What a waste when everyone now a days wants to install as many and high quality apps. I will never own a Nexus with this LAME 512mb flash drive. LAME. Can't believe Google would endorse such a LAME OS drive in a duper expensive device. When is someone going to actually do it as right as Apple did it.

    Its funny to see people lapping up the new Nexus One and slating the iPhone. Congrats to Google as it really does look like a cracking product, but make no mistake, its an iPhone for all the PC users out there that are too bigoted to buy what has been the best product on the market for the last 3 years.

    Yea, ok.. we believe u.. hahahaha. I've had mine for over a month and its the greatest thing I've ever played with! And sturdy as a prize steer.. it will become the next biggest phone, dethroning the iphone.. but they all get dethroned eventually, so one day the droid will be topped, too. But as long as that keeps happening, we the consumer ultimitely win. Until then, hail to the new king Droid! At once sire… hahaha

    “Now, Do you doubt on Nexus one’s Speed? Clearly beats iPhone (except for the browsing experience, iPhone 3GS beats Nexus one badly at browsing). The User experience is still immature as compared to iPhone, but hardware has its edge over Apple.”

    …until Apple releases a new iPhone. Then all their competitors will spend another 3 years trying to catch up.

      That is very true. Look how long it took for companies to catch up with the iphone. exactly three years. But I actually thank the Iphone for putting all those things in a phone becuase that opened up the companys eyes that we as customers deserve better then there cheap phones.

    iPhone is a religion; HTC/Nexus is a technology. OSX of Apple computers was the basis and that is great!
    Apple deserves “religious following” and will get it by dint of their aesthetics, marketing and ability to come up with gimmicks that kids enjoy.
    I prefer technology, reliability and creativity
    I have deserted Microsoft for OSX about 5 years ago
    I have been driving a Prius for about 5 years
    I have been using HTC for about 5 years (have not changed to Android yet – but will)
    I have not changed to Nexus Google yet and am not sure I will – Nexus/Google will never be as nimble as HTC as long as HTC does not sell its soul to Google.

  • truthbetold

    alright listen up so i can make it clear.
    The iphone 3gsis by far the best phone known to man. It is legendary. Apple created this phone 3 years ago and untill now it is still the most popular. This year apple beat the 2 best selling phone companies. Number 2 was samesung and number one was nokia. Apple sold 4 million more phones than nokia. And if you think about it apple has only made one type of phone while nokia has made tons. But all of nokias phoness put together still did not beat apples iphone.

    The nexus one is just like all the other iphone wannabes. Think about it, a few months ago the Research in Motion Blackberry Storm touch phone was thought to beat the iphone but now no one even remembers it. Same with the LG Touch, Samsung Star Touch, HTC Touch, and now the nexus one.

    All og these companies are just compying the iphone. The nexus one also has a slide to unlock feature a home button and etc.

    Simply the iphine is just the best so thanx APPLE (but lose AT&T :)

      so very true. we should wait until this summer june they will announce it at the wwdc and july release date for some countries of course if they do as they have for the past three years. who knows they might not? but i think most are certain there will be a new one and with what specs? we will see so i think a nexus one gen vs that phone will be better to do. though the nexus one looks very good that you can have themes that with the iphone you cant use as external drive or send with bluetooth no flash on the camera apple tell you what you can and cant install ont he phone which is stupid no easily selecting mp3s and using as ringtones you have to convert them and spend ages deciding what one you want to use and you cant change sms tone they cripple and limit the phone so much that even the 3gs is not good for the things I personally use a phone for. the nexus seems much better. and drive space thing i dont like on the nexus. 4G only and you have to pay for extra? where as with the iphone its 16 and 32GB and with the new iphone it will be most likely 32 and 64GB..

      but so far the nexus wins easily espesially that it has voice recognition for the text messaging which will make texting much easier. though i would not be shocked to learn if apple added it with a software update

    Sheesh… Give it up Apple fanboys. Numerous comparisons on the net clearly shows the nexus to be the faster one when it comes to the browser experience. I have tested myself using my nexus and my friends 3gs (entering the same urls and pressing “go” at the same time). The nexus is faster in every trial. Sometimes twice as fast in rendering as the iphone.

    Yes, apple will probably release a 4gen iphone this summer (with led-flash, front camera, etc). Great, it will be a nice phone. Don't expect the other players to do nothing. They will all continue to develop “their” line of phones. Loosers will be Symbian and windows mobile :-)

    First of all, I would like to thank Taranfx for creating this. I think this was a very well done comparison. The frame rate comparison intrigued me. While I understand that comparing full screen to full screen is a practical comparison, I would like to see a comparison running at a 480×320 resolution (maximum iPhone resolution). I suspect that the Nexus One suffers because it has more pixels to paint.

    you know what, wait until the next iphone comes out and then compare it to the nexus one, both from 2010…lol, dont wanna see your faces google fanboys. …and I got both phones here with me… iphone 3gs wins

    Idiots, why are you even comparing?

    Almost double the iphones processor, doubles the RAM (speed), doubles the resolution+, doubles the camera + flash, android is free which allows you to have “OPTIONS” something steve slave master keeps taking away from you (examples: Opera, Flash, ETC), markets? Are you retarded? for every 1 useful app on the iphones market(acne removing app + Fart apps LMAO), there are 3-5 on android with real use. Screen is bigger, phone is lighter and thinner, removable battery, removable storage (unlimited), multi task as much as you want, more than palm pre, screen displays better (AMOLED), multi touch has been implemented in software update, should I keep going? I'll keep going then, HSPDA (faster than 3g) all day long where I live for 65 a month (my preference plan) unlimited data, unlimited text, unlimited mobile to mobile, unlimited nights/weekends, while you morons pay 120+ “FOR LESS”. I'll stop here cause I can be here all day, Compare the nexus one with the Islave4G, then It'll make more sense but if it's still attached to steve jobs + at&t, it'll fail and continue the islave fan boys attached. Btw I'm not on a contract, and you are.

      Finally, some one with the same frustration as I have. Why are iPhone fanatics so irrational on this subject? They had the best phone on the market for a very long time and will likely have a competitive phone on the market soon enough. Can't they just accept that at this particular point in time, the iPhone is not the best phone on the market. Why is that such a hard pill to swallow? What is it about the iPhone that inspires such devotion this currently inferior product? It's like the existence of a better product means that the police are going to break down their doors and take their beloved iPhones away.

      People, no one is saying that you can't keep your iPhone. No one is saying that you can't love your iPhone. But facts are facts and this article has laid those facts out very objectively. We should let them speak for themselves.

    I'd have to say I agree with the comments saying this is a ridiculous comparison considering the age and hardware behind the iPhone. Also, a few of the declarations in this are nothing but blatantly false:
    “Now, Do you doubt on Nexus one’s Speed? Clearly beats iPhone (except for the browsing experience, iPhone 3GS beats Nexus one badly at browsing and Gaming).”
    This review places the Nexus One ahead of the iPhone by a large margin in every browser test.
    http://blogs.computerworld.com/15875/ipad_vs_ne

    As far as the 3D element is concerned, the demo is rendering something written specifically for the iPhone and ported quickly over to the Android phone without much concern for it's architecture. Look through Youtube, there are many iPhone style games for the Nexus One that run better than their iPhone counterparts. The difference is that they were coded from the ground up for the Nexus One.

    Wow, I can't believe how extreme some people get. Both phones are flat out AMAZING. When it comes down to it though, it all comes down to PERSONAL preference. Me personally, I had both phones and I like the iPhone slightly better because of the music play list setup and how iCal is. Let's face it…every person is NOT going to use EVERY feature of the phone. So pick the phone based on long term use for you. Each phone has it's advantages and disadvantages. Learn which ones work for you and go with it. Don't be bias just because you hate one phone over the other. Knowledge is power.

    People… the matter here is not quantity on specs but quality. Do you really can compare an Apple Macbook pro to a Dell? Even if the Dell was empowered by double of the tech specs? The fact is… Dell is worse… do you know why? Cos Apple build their products based on quality not on quantity… the fact is that Apple gain every fanboy upon a great service called App Store, full of homologated apps…Android market wants to grow.. that's why so many buggy apps… even that iFart app on App Store app is great (sold zillions of copies) cos bring some fun costing almost nothing… I noticed the disquietude of some costumers screaming for vengeance against Apple iPhone… they are not looking for a good product they are looking for something better than iPhone… People… calm down… it's just a phone… next year you will kick the current phone off and get a new one… that's all! Care a little bit more on things that will push you forward.

    You people are funny. This phone is being compared to the iPhone. The iPhone sux to me!! I mean, the iPod is good enough for me. So you get an iPod and the Samsung Memoir, and I'm satisfied. I mean, the camera sux on the iPhone. And no flash?

    And for those who laugh at the Nexus One internal storage? Yea. At least the Nexus One can get expandable storage. It can easily get over 64 GB of space. Have a little case to hold your Micros and you're set. 5mp camera with HD recording. Nice!! Too bad the iPhone is really all apps and you all know it.

    I hate to say this, but until Apple fix their little I-can-only-watch-youtube-videos scenario, it's web will S-U-C-K and you all know it!! And the iPhone is only fast because of AT&T, so 3G-ing would obviously be faster.

    Once Google and Samsung hook up to make the ultimate Android 12 mp Camera phone, Apple lost. But until that day, the only thing I love about the iPhone is the User Interface. It's so perfect. I'm sorry everyone, but Apple has everyone beat.

    iPhone does not have APPS!!! I lied above!! Those apps, and iphone lovers know it, SUX!! If I type in “Text” I get over 20 apps about trying to get free text. Wow? So there apple automatically has 20 apps. Sounds more like 1 app, different developers? iphone lovers need to get that straight.

    P.S. It's only hope for Google and Samsung to team up, but with Samsung's camera, and Google's interface, that would be one hail of a phone to beat, and you all know it. It'll have excellent specs with an awesome camera behind it. And it will be on T-Mobile, just so I can have it. XP

    good luck with Steve jobs coming out with something new that can compete. have you used these Nexus One and iphone side by side? Even if it comes close, you'll pay for it through the nose. and it seams that most iphone users are in a trance and will pay and pay. It doesn't take a genius to see a plethora of android phones and devices and one lonely iphone in a corner jumping up and down telling us how it used to be all that. By the way Steve jobs will have to do some serious A$$ kissing to Adobe to get Flash. so far I don't think it is going to happen.

    When Steve Jobs gets the following capabilities on his 1 iphone then I'll look at it again.
    MULTI-TASKING like doing two things at once. e.g. surf web and send/receive emails.
    BLUE TOOTH VOICE DIALING
    ABLE TO CHANGE BATTERY
    SD CARD SLOT
    FLASH (FOR ALL THE GAMES AND MOVIES AND SITES.)
    TETHERING
    ABILITY TO TAKE IT TO ANOTHER CARRIER.
    NON PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE. (can only use their cables.) others use standard connections.
    FREE TURN BY TURN VOICE NAVIGATION GPS while still getting your emails. Hah
    WIRELESS SYNC FOR CONTACTS CALENDAR AND PHONE UPDATES.
    PROPER CONNECTION WITH GOOGLE PRODUCTS AND ALL THEIR ONLINE SERVICES. (have you compared them?)
    BETTER PHONE SERVICE. (yeah I really like to get my calls please)

    I'm tired of the iphone (we have 200,000 app crap. most of those are farting and flash light apps. (yeah I wrote an app that makes my screen white.) or (I made an app that simulates kids drinking bear while they tilt it to their mouth.)
    yeah iphone has a lot of useless apps to bloat their numbers to 200,000 and growing, but have you compared the costs of actual useful apps and ability to find the app you need?

    Iphone interface is very smooth. If you bought a $500 laptop or computer that just did one thing (or two things) at a time then I sure would hope that it would run smooth since its doing nothing else.

    There is a huge following for iphone.
    That's because people are just simply scared of change.
    when iphone was the only game in the market then that was different. But when you have options then people just stick with what they now.
    and that's why BUSH was re-elected.
    we had to pay through the nose for BUSH and we pay through the nose for Apple products.

    iphone is the past. Android and android devices are the future.

    FROYO ANDROID 2.2 MAKES NEXUS ONE TRUE SUPER-PHONE.

    “More Flexible sync with iTunes” is an advantage?????
    That only mean “You must use iTunes”
    Windows Mobile also provides many option for us to sync.
    When i change my phone btw WM and Android, i only need to entry my Exchange or Google App account on my phone, and not need to connect to PC any more.
    I was used many smartphone (all androids and WM), i just remove my account on the old phone , buy new phone and set up the account on new phone and use my NB or external battery to charge it………not like Iphone need many time to turn on my NB and install the heavy application and do many setup…….
