I finally received my extra extended battery today. So now I have a total of two extended batteries.

For some reason I could not get a tracking number from VZW, I tried calling , emailing, and ranting, but nothing worked .
That was the first time that I ever ordered from them on line and it will be the last.

Default I'm getting a Nexus!!!

Some of you may remember that I said I had to hold off in getting a Galaxy Nexus, due to the uncertaintly of our job... we'll know whether we have jobs going forward the first week of January 2012. Well, I received a VERY pleasant surprise yesterday morning from my manager's manager: an AmEx gift card for "Performance and Recognition"! I wasted no time in calling Verzion and ordering a Galaxy Nexus!! It will be here on Thursday. Not only that, when I called, they gave me the web-only price of $260 rather than $300!!

I didn't want to go to the store... the reps there move at the speed of drifting continents and it's always a zoo at this time of year. Plus, when I tried to order it online, it said it wasn't compatible with my data plan so the phone rep had to tweak a few things (I'm holding onto my unlimited data plan for dear life).

I'm so excited, I can't stand it!

Both my 3g and 4g were off until after 830. Honestly, I almost did not notice because my signal strength bars are grey more often than blue, lol. I took my phone up to the Verizon store and did a side by side with another nexus and all the strength readings were pretty good and about the same so I know its not my actual unit. Funny thing is I live in a house on stilts and from my kitchen (third floor) I can see the tower across the sound, and if i stand looking out that window I pick up 2 to three bars of 4g. Move to the other side of the house or go down a level and it has only one bar or all the bars are grey

I also got the extended battery yesterday via fed-ex (ordered Sunday night). I also like how the phone feels better with this battery in it and it still fits in the tpu case. I fully charged the original battery and will carry it as a back up if I need it. Anyone know how long it will hold a charge outside of the phone?

It should keep some charge on it for several weeks.

Good morning, peeps!

Can anyone who rooted with Clockworkmod Recovery check their system folder under Root Explorer to see if "/system/reboot-from-recovery.p" is there?

I definitely only renamed it, but I just went into that file with Root Explorer and it's gone!!

Ah, I see. I guess when I flashed Universal HD it got deleted.

Oh well. Hopefully when I'm ready to accept an OTA I will be able to restore my nandroid backup and it will reappear.

BTW, no 4G here either.

BTW with a USB OTG cable, this program lets you mount flash drive to your Nexus - requires root though.

First day on extended battery and it dipped down to 55% and then gradually started climbing back up in the low 60% range without plugging it back in, lol. Silly Android. Figure I'll get a couple of good full charges and drains in on it the next couple of days and then should see some excellent battery performance. Why didn't they just include this battery with the phone from the factory? *sigh*

No themes, or other installed BS. CM has that good stuff but just works properly.... I just don't particularly care for all the kangs in the dev section of the forums.

O yeah on XDA someone got a version of CM dialer with the mod that searches contact names and numbers when typing the numbers. Works great in Pete's rom
Right on

Shadows and saturation in the built-in editing program.

Definitely not as sharp as I'd like, but when reduced size its not bad at all.

Nice love the in-phone editing! It's amazing and also unknown to many how hard it is to handhold and get a clear/sharp motionless shot (even more so in low light/low shutter speed). Has anyone tried vignette yet?

I have two of the standard batteries, and I'm currently getting about 10 hours on my first (at work, on 4g with 2-3 bars) and about 6 or 7 on the second (the one that's mostly on wi-fi, but I'm playing with it more).

Mine definitely improved over the course of the first 3 days with it. Then I rooted so it's hard for me to say how good 4.0.2 was on battery life.

I flashed android revolution HD AHRD rom (4.0.2) last night, because of my battery life experience on 4.0.3 was/is markedly better.

I still have yet to try my ext battery as I've been fine with the stock one getting through a solid day. The issues with the android os are so random with me and I can't find a rhyme or reason as to why yet.

10 hours is pretty good all on 4G if you're using it moderately imo

I used vlingo exclusively on my Inc for about 6 months it was really good. Don't know why I stopped, maybe when the Googs improved theirs I changed up. The GN's works wonderfully for my uses

Well, this is my homescreen right now. I wish Go Launcher Ex was smoother. It might have to hold me over until the Devs start releasing highly customizable roms (hidden notification bar, changing the color of the soft keys, doing away with the line above the bottom row of icons.)

I ordered my extended battery on 12/16 and I just got it about 30 minutes ago.

Nice, I just got mine yesterday in the mail. 13 hours so far and I'm only at 51%.

I haven't rooted (I'm a root virgin), and I don't have plans to root my GN, unless someone who knows what they are doing actually does it for me.

Even though I'm on 4G all day, I barely touch my phone at work, so it seems it should last more than 10 hours...at least I hope it will eventually. My DX would last from 5 a.m. until usually somewhere betwen 8-10 p.m. Now, I'm putting in my spare battery before I leave work.

lol. I think you'll see more improvement on phone sleep states as the updates roll out. It's still so early for this release. I remember the Eris, the Inc, the Bionic, and all the initial "my battery life is awful, my phone won't sleep, look at this awake time!, etc.."

It will improve I know it!

I know it will. I think it's gradually gotten better than when I got it on Saturday. And honestly, since I have the spare battery with the external charger and I almost always am near a power source, it's not a deal breaker for me to only get 8-10 hours out of the battery if the phone works well - which this one does.

One more picture -- the camera is nowhere as bad as people are making it out to be. Even as a hobbiyst photographer with a Canon 5D and a nice lineup of lenses I still find this camera very useable for walkaround shots.

I took a photo yesterday of some text on paper and was blown away at how well it did, I'll upload shortly

Edit: guess I deleted the one from yesterday, but just snapped a quick one of the small print on a McDonalds coupon I had handy

I posted about it either up this page or 1-2 pages ago.

With root and a USB OTG adapter you can mount flash drives and anything else to the phone, which is awesome -- makes for infinite expandable storage!
