Default The "I got my Nexus 10" Thread

Since a lot of people will be getting there's today, or hopefully soon, I wanted to start this thread so we won't have a lot of different threads with everyone jumping for joy that us guides would have to merge into one thread anyway.

Post your happiness, disappointments, impressions, pictures etc.

Got mine today!!!!!! Love it!!! Size is perfect, YouTube app is beautiful! Screen and keyboard is amazing. The soft vibration when you push something is lovely.

Only thing is, BBC iPlayer is unavailable for the nexus 10 ahhh

When you first sign in to your Google account, does the N10 automatically download your apps already installed on a different Android tablet?

Thanks.

If I remember right, my Nexus 7, that I don't have anymore, automatically downloaded apps I had on my phone. I'll let you know in a few hours.

I'm almost certain it does not. Apps are associated with your device and account. When you go into the Play Store, it shows you All apps, and Installed ones.

If you sign into the Google dashboard immediately after registering your device, you'll see the app catalog associated with that device is empty.

But someone chime in if I'm wrong.

It gives you the option of syncing with your play account when you setup your device


This thing is a beauty. Love it so far!

Had mine on the charger for about 30 minutes now. Apps downloaded and have the system update waiting. As soon as I have a full charge....time to root and a custom recovery. I have stock 4.2 on my GNex, now lets get some custom ROMs cooking.

Have mine now. Love it! Fast and pretty.

Used backlight bleed test to check the screen. Slight light bleed in the bottom corners but not enough to notice when actually using.

I haven't had time to really use it much but I'm very happy with it so far.

It installed my N7 apps. I sold my N7 and can't delete it from the Play store.

Default tapping not as nice as my phone or (sold) n7

I'm finding that I'm having trouble tapping or pressing and holding and the tablet recognizing it. I have to keep trying sometimes. I'm wondering if its the Gorilla glass and hoping it's something that will get better with future system updates.

Taking a picture of the UPS van is too funny. That really made me laugh.

Really sorry to hear that Army. I hope you're doing well.

The way this industry goes, I'm sure there will be even better tablets out next year to look forward to.

Got mine yesterday at 2:00. Love it. Was charged to 60%out of the box. only problem so far was Firefox keeps crashing. Maybe due to 4.2. Just started using chrome its great. Netflix is beautiful on that better than retina screen. This is my first tablet, I actually waited knowing the ten would be built. Can't wait to c how it integrates w my gnex.

Got mine yesterday love everything about it except one thing. I'm coming from an IPad 2 and used it primarily in portrait mode. So I tried out the nexus in portrait and looks fine except when i scroll up or down it looks like the screen stretches or looks wobbly if you scroll really slow. Actually scrolling side to side you notice it as well like the image stays stuck and then when you scroll it stretches the image and then the image moves. So using it in landscape mode that weird scrolling effect doesn't seem to be as noticeable. On the Ipad i kinda notice is but not as much. Wonder if its because of jelly bean? Happens in any app.

Syk 69. I'm trying to replicate your problem and mine doesn't seem to do it. I can actually tell a difference in the smoothness when my finger is pushing too hard and vibrates or if I slide it smoothly. Buttery

Thanks guys! I figured out its just optical illusion from the narrower screen in portrait mode compared to iPad which I'm used to. Its the same optical illusion as waving a pencil real slow up and down that it looks like its bending when its really not.
