Funny story...

The Charge is the biggest tell though as the difference suggests a slightly less optimized antenna as the Modem and radio are about the exact same thing. Haven't tried my wife Charge at work here to compare 3g weak signal differences.

EDIT: Forgot to ask if the Rezound, Thunderbolt, Charge, or Vortex do any better at acquiring a data connection or are they just better at keeping a signal and not killing battery?
They do better at both

Think of an apple computer like a pure google android experience. There's no 'carrier' bloat so to speak. Same really goes for windows really.. it's generally the extra stuff manufacturers add on that cause the problems.

Apples don't have to worry about viruses as much as Windows machines. The OS works differently.. it's very much like an iPhone. It's a walled garden approach. They're fine computers and the way they use memory made them the best at using memory-intensive programs such as video and picture editing for quite some time.. however, that's debatable nowadays. You won't run into many viruses on them (if any) for a variety of reasons, one of the lesser known ones is back in the 80's Apple had 'street cred' with the hacking community over Jobs and Woz having a relationship with one of the most respected phone hackers around. So they left the mac alone and went after dos. Of course that probably has no bearing on today's viruses but it's an interesting bit of history.

Apple computers are overpriced for what they are, but they are really the perfect computers for people who are not technically inclined. They just work without much thinking about them. And if there is an issue, rebuild desktop/repair permissions pretty much fixes it (think factory reset on android).

After playing with both ( and waiting forever for the Nexus) the Razr and NexusI know I am in the minority but I stuck with the Razr. No SD slot,only 5mp camera,no mass storage (yes I know you can drag and drop still) and it is basically made of plastic, where as the Razr is a solid built phone. I know the Nexus has a bigger and somewhat better screen ( although my Razrs screen looks great) They run basically the same hardware. The only real reason I was thinking about ditching my razr for the nexus was ICS, but from everything i've read and heard the razr will get ICS in Q1 of next year.
This post is not a knock on the Nexus by any means as it is an amazing phone( so don't think I am hating on the Nexus).
I really just wrote this post to show why I kept the razr, and did not get the Nexus.
I am sure however that others have their own reason for selecting their own device.
This post was mainly fueled by bordom. . Carry on guys

Well said! I've found macs are still the preference in the film/art world at least for indepdents. We will see how the new FCP X piece of junk chances that in the longer run but for now they're pretty safe.

In terms of cost, my desktop is a hackintosh. All the benefits I need of a Mac at less than half the cost. And yes it's legal because it's in a g5 case and in order to legally install OSX you just need the computer to be labeled as a Mac. I am hoping to upgrade my MBP which is now 6 this spring, other than heavy rendering, it's still doing quite well, just can't keep up with my needs. I've found Macs tend to balance somewhat of the cost by having a longer lifespan on average.

FCP X is a real travesty. Such a great opportunity for Apple to do something special with all of the new ways to shoot video (HD, DSLR, RED, GoPro/Sport cams etc..) and they went the safe route by making a powerful editor for youtube/smartphone videos. I haven't even looked at it since the first month of release but how can you not have multicam in a professional/prosumer video editing suite? Boggles the mind.

Longevity is one of the mac's strong points, however if you are not really doing any gaming a windows laptop can usually function quite well for you for years (outside of video/photo editing of course - except perhaps the newer processors).

So did you power on the phone normally with just the power button after you installed the new ext battery and it went to that screen? Most often, a battery pull will solve it. Or, if you are tooted, you can push volume buttons down and up at the same time and while keeping them down push power button and hold all 3 till it vibrates (well this is true for some phones don't know about the GN yet). Is how you'd get into recovery from a dead state.
Yeah, it was scary!! Here's how it went down: I powered the phone off, removed the standard battery and swapped it for the extended. Then I put the cover on and hit the power button. I was very surprised to see it go to the bootloader screen, especially with the message that it was downloading. It wasn't responding to touch or key presses either to begin with. I suppose its possible that I inadvertently hit the volume button when I hit power since that is such a natural hand placement. Also, not sure if it matters but my phone is unlocked but not rooted.

When you powered on the phone you had it in your hand and as you pressed the power button with your thumb your middle finger gripped the phone harder and pressed the volume rocker down. Voila, you have now entered Odin Mode.
Am I right? Or did find a second way to do it?
!
Its very possible that is what happened since I do typically hold the phone that way. Seeing the bootloader isn't what scared me though - it was that the phone was unresponsive and had the message "Downloading...Do not turn off target!!"

@Stigy - Sorry, haven't been able to do a fully controlled trial like you asked for in your thread, but here's my battery stats for day 1 of the extended battery; my Android OS is higher than usual, maybe these screenshots will help:

Battery:





Keep Awake:





Screen On:





External battery finished charging at around midnight last night, so I unplugged it to let it start running down. I left 4G on, but have NFC and GPS turned off; still, as you can see from the screen on time, it's been pretty light usage overall. The Android OS spike is a bit worrisome.

I just bought an Incipio 2 piece case in a matte black finish.You cant tell who makes this phone or what carrier its on.It looks like the monolith in 2001 A Space Oddesey. (I am sure BB never saw this movie either.)

Got the same case. I love it. Buttons are pronounced and makes the phone feel sturdier. The standard that comes with it is good for watching netflix too.

I haven't seen more than 10-12 hours on my extended battery. Guess I just use it more.

I've been ok with my standard battery. Probably 10 - 12 as well, but I only use wifi at home and haven't been using it a ton away from my couch I have NFC and gps turned off as well which I think helps. I think I'll charge my standard battery to full (in phone) then swap for an overnight charge on the extended.

Oh and fwiw the screen protector included with Diztronic cases isn't horrible! It's looking pretty good on my mommy's Rezound. Very pleasantly surprised.

Saw some discussion of if Macs/OS X could get Viruses the answer is that for most part both Windows and OS X do not get viruses. Instead, they get malware, software that tricks the user into installing it, once that is on the machine you get viruses. There are Trojans for OS X and some worms, but due to the low market share the black hats (hacker bad guys) do not waste time making viruses for a machine that is less then 15% of the market.

Also, the two best defenses against this things are: Keep your machine UPDATED!!! and be a smart user, don't run programs at random, check urls, read e-mails carefully!!!


Apple over all practices what is known at security through obscurity , not publishing or exposing their software for testing. At the most recent PWN2OWN (a hacker competition) OS X was the first OS to get hacked each time.

Is that 0.2.6? Flash your radio too?

0.2.3 but the subtle tweaks are super awesome. I love 4.0.3 so far and it's really fast. Gonna test extended battery tomorrow and report back.

Highly recommended ROM.

Just finished an interesting film. "The Troll Hunter". It's a subtitled Norwegian film shot in a fashion similar to Blair Witch. I enjoyed it. Worth a look if you like foreign films.

Might as well mention another Norwegian my kids and I liked: "Dead Snow". Nazi Zombies, need I say more? Great fun.

Alright got my extended battery in! Feels better in hand with no case on compared to standard because it's only a hair thicker and heavier. TPU case fit back on easily. Looks like it will be my day to day battery and the standard will be my back up

I've been meaning to watch Dead Snow for ages! I'd heard of Troll Hunter too - Europe is really doing all the great innovate horror stuff in the last 5+ years. (but please don't tell my sfx makeup friends! They might get upset that I don't favor their stuff! Good as The Craziest was...)

Do you know if the Netflix 1080 app works on it?

That's the only thing stopping me from flashing that particular rom.

Are you having issues with gmail sync on romans toro build 9? With a lot of these latest 4.0.3 builds you need to flash gapps immediately following your rom flash. No reboots inbetween.

Because of some of these sync/flash order issues you'll soon see these ROM's with gapps built in

the one thing i didn't do was specifically wipe my caches before installing. all i did was the data/factory reset. then flashed rom, then gapps, then reboot.

Your probably OK as a wipe data/factory reset does that. Well it's supposed to anyways. I like to wipe data/factory reset, then wipe cache partition, then format system under mounts and storage, then wipe dalvik cache...all before a new ROM flash. That's just me though I like to be thorough

This way, if issues arise, I know most likely it is not something I did prior to the flash, and more likely something with the ROM/kernel/CWM version/etc...

Yeah brightside, if you don't mind, try a re-flash but do all the things I listed even if they are redundant. CWM has a history, and a well documented one, of sometimes not doing the best job house cleaning

Hello all...I'm back, but I'm still whining. I'll post a quick update, and then I'll try to disappear again. So after the fiasco with the $100 off, VZ was shipping my GNex. It was supposed to arrive Monday. Blizzard. No go. Tuesday? Roads were cleared up by noon, still no Fed Ex. Today, tracking said it was on the truck to deliver. I stayed home ALL day. I finally did leave at 5:45 to serve supper at my church, advent worship, and I was back home at 7:30. I left a signature release on the door, but it was still there when I got home. I live in a small town, and yet I saw TWO different Fed Ex trucks. One even stopped at a house two doors down...but not here! At 8:53, my phone was checked BACK into the Fed Ex distribution center...sigh. REALLY? I called the Fed Ex number and they said that the drivers said the roads were impassable. Really? Then how did the truck get down my street the first time? The distribution center is 45 miles away, but if they tell me in the morning that they won't be able to deliver, or won't guarantee delivery, I guess I'll make a trip down there and pick it up. But my luck, I'll get there and they'll say "Oh, sorry, it's on the truck."
I've been avoiding the boards because quite honestly it just makes me sad that I don't have my phone yet...
Hope you are all having a wonderful time with your phones. Hope you are working all the bugs out so that when I get mine, you'll be able to help me get it all working great!
Steven, hope you feel better quick!

Merry Christmas all!
Blessings-
Toto

I get no data in my house and my signal says -120 but I just had my first phone call (yes the very first since I bought it lol) and it was clear and loud and perfect. So maybe the signal meter isn't set right. Because if I have 'no' signal then I shouldn't be able to text and call

Are you still able to make calls and get data though? If so are they connecting and staying connected?

That's terrible! I really hope you get your Nexus soon, and that you're as pleased as we all are with it once you do.

Text and calls seem to be ok. I've been very happy with the call quality even if the speaker could be a little stronger.

Data doesn't come through from what I can tell. But I'm always on wifi at home because we are in a very dead spot. We are in the middle of a dip in a winding Road next to a lake so all service is weak in the house except on the 3rd floor. I get a bar of 4g up there but haven't checked the real stats yet.

mostly I'm just confused why it dropped by -10 from one day to the next in the exact same spot.
