We had the Ring doorbell when it first came out, and last year we upgraded to the Ring 2. We had problems with both of them over the years, whether it be connectivity, false alerts, bad motion sensing, issues with the app, battery life, etc. You name the problem, we had it with Ring. I must have spent 10 hours on the phone with tech support over the years we've owned Ring products. So we just installed the new Nest Hello doorbell and it is AMAZING compared to the Ring. Everything about it is better, faster, and more reliable. Below are some details and my thoughts after using it for 3 weeks now. If you have any other questions about it let me know, I'd be happy to answer them.
1) The Nest Hello is made my Google, which makes all Nest products, so if you have (or are thinking about getting) any Nest camera, thermostat, smoke detector, etc, they all live in the same one Nest app on your phone and the integration is seamless.

2) The notifications on the app are lightning fast, and when you tap on a notification it pulls up the video feed immediately with almost no lag, and the video and audio quality is excellent. I've had no issues responding to the doorbell quickly and having a very clear conversation with the person ringing it.

3) The Hello can tell the difference between people and objects, so you will not get any false alarms for motion like we used to with the Ring doorbell...every time a FedEx, UPS, or any large truck drove by, someone turned around in our driveway, etc, the Ring would go off. We could not have the motions alerts turned on because of this. But with the Hello doorbell, you can set it to alert you only when it sees people, or also turn on/off settings for objects and also loud sounds. In 3 weeks of using it, the Hello has been 100% accurate in only notifying me when actual people get within its range. No more false alarms when a truck drives by

4) The Hello has excellent facial recognition, so you can train it to recognize people, and when they walk near your doorbell (they don't even have to ring it), the Hello can tell you that person is here. It sees a face, you give it a name, and then you get smart notifications, telling you who's at the door. If it doesnt know who the person is it will just say "someone" is at the door, then the app will later ask you if you know that person. If you say yes, you can name them, and from that point on, the doorbell will know who they are when they see them and identify them by name.

5) It also integrates with Google Home devices, so if you have one of those, when someone rings the doorbell, you'll not only get a notification on your phone, but you can set it so your Google Home device also tells you someone is at the door. And if you've trained it for that person's face, it will say "Greg is at the door". Kinda freaky, but also pretty impressive. I currently have this turned on and it works very well.

6) Note: the Hello must be hard wired like an old-school doorbell, so it may not be for everyone....but because of this it always has power, which means that it is always recording 24/7...not just when it senses motion. This means that unlike with Ring, you won't go to watch a recording only to find out that by the time it started recording the motion, the person was already walking away. This used to happen to us all the time with Ring, because those delivery guys run so fast! And the one time we had a package stolen, that guy also moved too fast for the Ring to get him on video. The Hello records everything, all the time, but only saves a clip of what it records if it senses the type(s) of motion you set it to save. This is fantastic for when you want to go back and watch a video of a delivery person running up to your door and chucking a delicate package over the fence and damaging it then running away...true personal experience =). We did not have a hard-wired doorbell, so we bought one on Amazon for $60 and had a handyman install it for us, then just wired the Hello instead of the button that came with the doorbell.

7) Unfortunately the cloud recording is more expensive than Ring, at $5/month (Ring is only $3/month) for saving 5 days worth of footage, but given how much better this doorbell is in every way, it's well worth it. At any time, you can go in and save any clips to your phone or computer storage to save it forever...so basically you have 5 days from any incident to go in and do that before Nest deletes it in the cloud.

8) It has pre-programmed auto-replies for when someone rings the doorbell, so if you don't want to talk to the person, you can have the auto-reply say a set phrase such as "We'll be rigt there" or "Hi there! No one can answer the door right now. We'll be notified you stopped by".

9) You can draw your own precise "zones" in the settings if you want to be notified when someone is just in that area, like a driveway or front porch etc. but you can pick any area any size within the camera view

The Nest Cams do keep track of motion events too and in the video history feed there will be little indicators that let you bounce around to events that happened. So it's not too difficult to find things of interest!

Shortly after installing our indoor Nest cams we went out of town and had a house sitter watching our place. Thanks to the motion snapshots that get sent to our email/phones we found that the house sitter invited a guest over... and that the guest didn't like to wear clothes in our home. We scrolled back through the previous nights footage and saw everything that was going on in the house. The cameras let us know that we needed to sanitize every square inch of our home when we got back.

Are you sure about that?

I have tried dialing their sales department and the phone disconnects after waiting for a minute or two.

I personally have a nest doorbell and love it. I have their cameras, smoke detectors, and thermostats as well. It's all in one app which is nice.
I read this article last week. It may help you decide.

It depends on what you want out of it. The biggest difference, in my opinion, is that Ring records chunks of video when it is triggered by motion (and/or maybe sound too). I think Ring's price is $30/year for your first cam... or $100/year for however many cameras you have. Nest records 24/7 and has various pricing tiers (free keeps 3 hours of footage, $5/month gets you 5 days, and $10/month gets you 10 days).

Nest is more expensive and more limited in products (regarding customer needs). Ring is cheaper in terms of product and subscription ($10/month for unlimited devices). I have products from both Nest (thermostat, temperature sensor, protect) and Ring (doorbell 1, floodlight, 2x spotlight battery.)

It depends on how much you want to spend, now and forth. I like ring a lot, and even though it's not perfect it gives me the piece of mind I need. There are rumors of a major revamp to software coming in mid-2018 and possibly having HomeKit support on select products.

Hope this helps.

This helps. I like the Nest but I like that Ring records chunks of videos. I'd prefer having incidents (someone pushes the button, motion detected) vs having to go through hours of video to find things.

I was kidding, looks like a fake site to me.
I got burned trying to order this product from another website and received a warning from SD for posting the link. I'm surprised this thread is still active being it is from a suspicious site

Nest is actually pretty good about this even though it records all the time. In the app, you can scroll through your timeline & it puts thumbnails where there is some activity. You stop on that thumbnail & it directly plays that part of the video.
