Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Your call

Signal strength is good – I had no trouble making calls and sound quality was fine. There’s noise cancellation to help, but this is software-based rather than on the Nexus One that featured an extra microphone to make it work. Call quality is often overlooked in smarties, so it’s good to see it prioritised here. And battery life, that other bugbear in big-screen phones, is excellent, much better than the first Nexus.

Storage aside, Android fans won't be disappointed

Verdict

Do you like Android? If so, it’s hard to find a better piece of hardware to go with it, unless you want a chic metal casing like the HTC Desire HD. But if you want the joys of Gingerbread now, instead of waiting for the networks and manufacturers to update their handsets, this is the phone for you. Plus, it has a great screen, splendidly fast CPU and pleasing design, all in a light package. The constricted memory may be a problem for some, but that’s one of few faults on board here. ®
