Well it's been almost 24 hours since I made the switch from my iPhone 3GS to the Nexus one. I'm still getting used to the new interface and I'm sure it will take me a few weeks to get totally confortable with it.
Notifications. The notification feature of Android is much better than on the iPhone.
Navigation. I love the satellite and street view on the navigation, much better than the TomTom navigation app on my iPhone.
Google Voice. The iPhone has a great (pay) GV app, but having it built into the OS is much better.
Live Wallpaper. What can I say, I love the eye-candy.
Facebook. What can I say, the Facebook app sucks compared to the iPhone.
Market. Even though the iPhone app store needs work, it is still much better than the Android Marketplace.
Podcasts. I'm using Dogcatcher on the Nexus and it's ok, but Podcasts are much easier to keep up with on the iPhone. I do like being able to stream them over 3G though (something you cannot do on the iPhone).
I'll check back in about a week or so with more opinions.
I look forward to hearing your impressions. I, like you, have an iPhone 3GS (and have had some iPhone since the beginning). I love my mac computers and like my iPhone though I have frankly gotten bored with it and slowly but surely have gotten more hooked into Google products (gmail, calendar, Google Voice). I have a concern about missing one or two apps that I use but I realize that concern will probably go away with time. I would like to hear your impressions of the photo and music syncing, etc.
Thanks, rvinny. Great observations. As it happens, my Nexus One is sitting here charging for the first time. I'm trying to be patient and wait for the light to turn green but it's getting tough. I, too, use 1Password and Omnifocus (like Things) and will miss those but hope the rest makes up for that.
I ordered my Nexus One. It'll be the first time in almost 3 years I've used something other than the iPhone. Were you able to simply take the sim card from your iPhone and stick it in the N1 and get up and running? I have heard that is supposed to be that easy but wanted to check to make sure it really was that easy.
By the way, how is they typing experience compared to the iPhone?
