Nexus One Vs Droid
When comparing Nexus One vs Droid, it sounds like you are discussing a battle between a pair of futuristic robots rather than discussing high tech mobile phones. It is good we are not talking robots here. With the way Android smartphones have bred a growing population of mindless zombies who exist solely to text and play with various apps, robots would win any revolution they mounted. Forget starting an apocalyptic war. The robots would just need to take control of the smartphones and the world is theirs to rule. A grim fate. Still, you can at least compare these features of Nexus One and Droid to help you decide which one will get to suck away the last of your brain cells:
Memory: Droid holds a distinct advantage over Nexus One in memory space. A Droid comes equipped with a 16GB microSD card that costs $35. That is a huge memory boost over Nexus One. It has only 4GB of available storage space in its microSD card. It might be a wash in the end, though, since both microSD cards can be upgraded to hold 32GB worth of memory. Still, the Nexus One has an edge in other memory areas with twice as much RAM memory as the Droid.
Display: Nexus One offers an 3.7 inch OLED display. The 400x800 pixel screen is much brighter and richer in color than the 3.7 inch TFT LCD display that Droid uses. What it means is if you want to take pictures of the drunk loser vomiting in your fish tank to use later when you sue for the cost of the dead exotic fish, the Nexus One is your biggest ally. The pictures will be much clearer.
Speed: Once again, there is no contest here. Nexus One simply blows Droid out of the water with its 1GHz Snapdragon processor. It is the most expensive component in the smartphone, but it is well worth it. Droid's 550-MHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor moves at a snail's pace by comparison. It is akin to racing a Ferrari against a ten-speed bicycle. They are just not in the same class.
Software: For now, Nexus One has the edge because it is equipped with Android 2.1 instead of Android 2.0 like Droid features. This updated version includes a voice-enabled typing system for texting, a 3D photo gallery, wallpapers that respond to touch and an expanded home screen featuring five standard panels instead of three panels. It is a short-lived victory for Nexus One, however, since the next edition of Droid is slated to get the same Android upgrades.
