Nexus One Pwns iPhone In Apple’s Backyard


dwight-smithDwight Silverman of the Houston Chronicle traveled to the big iFail event last week and decided to turn his trip into a little test; he brought both the Nexus One and iPhone 3GS and pit the two head to head in a battle of the best smartphones. His conclusion?

Overall, the Nexus One made for a better travel experience, at least to San Francisco which, ironically, is in Apple’s backyard.

Keep in mind this test was before the 3G fix. Also keep in mind this is one man’s test during one period of time in one location. Not to mention that half the public are probably rocking iPhones on AT&T so the network drag is a comparison you have to keep in mind. But all in all… it’s nice to see the appreciation for Android… at an Apple event… in Apple’s backyard.

After seeing this “test” was done by “Dwight” and with tomorrow being Thursday, I couldn’t help but hope that an episode of “The Office” has Dwight comparing/testing mobile phones with an Android and iPhone among them. THEN what would the result be?

“Question: What type of bear is best?”

I'm a sports lover who cheers for the Orange (College), Ravens (NFL), (Orioles), and Yankees (long story). I live in Baltimore and wear it on my sleeve, with an Under Armour logo. I also love traveling... where do you want to go?

  8. Per Dwight Silverman’s comment about the irony of the Nexus one besting the 3gs in Apple’s backyard. He probably doesn’t know it’s Google’s backyard also.

  10. just for fairness sake, inside that link he says he used an iphone 3g. not 3gs. it would be interesting to see the comparison done again with an updated n1 and a 3gs.
