After you sign in to google when you first boot the phone, it will automatically begin to sync your applications. Go to the market, hit menu, and select "my apps". This will bring up a list of all of your apps. You should see a button to stop all. Select this and then manually choose the apps you want to update or install.

You're right, I love that aspect of it. I was more talking about the syncing my contacts with my facebook friends and getting 1000 people in my phone contact list.

For the people worried about Facebook syncing pictures, just use Friendcaster. It has an option to only sync with existing contacts as well.

That part I understand. Im not quite to the 1000s of friends level though because I'm just not that popular.

Remember when it was exciting if you had 100 people in your contacts? And phones had a max number of them!

How do you sign into google? I created my account when I got my DX and haven't had to sign in since. I have no idea what my password is.

Other people obviously have different priorities, and I have no problem with that. But not every phone has to be built like a tank.
On top of those good points I'll add user experience. I love that my Casio has atomic clock time sync and it has solar recharging. It just works. (Perhaps Rolex's do this too...pretty sure I'll never find out from personal experience )

I know that calls to Verizon stores are generally considered worthless because the same information is relayed over and over again, but I just talked to a guy and he said that the internal resource they use within retail listed their specific location as receiving the Galaxy Nexus in January. This might explain why some stores say December and others January; perhaps it's a priority sort of thing, where some stores get them first and then they trickle out to others later.

So that's probably why some reps may have said January...

Just putting that out there, FWIW.

I sort of regret ditching my OG but at the same time, I was missing so many calls because it wouldn't ring, I was always getting in trouble at work. It was freezing so much I just had to get something, so I went with the 4g with the best battery life at the time. And honestly its a lot lot better with the gingerbread update!

If there wasn't a gnex on VZW then i would probably just root the hell out of my charge and stick it out. But yay for me, I don't have to!

Btw, I'm using the Rezound headphones on it, sounds good on my Lupe fiasco station. But the mic/call quality isn't great, worse than a speaker phone I think.
Please do a comparison between the Charge's screen and the Nexus' when you get it. I'm very interested to hear the difference between a low res. SAMOLED+ display and high res. SAMOLED display.

Hey guys (and gals) If your planing on going to a store to buy your nexus post it up here in a thread I started...

http://androidforums.com/samsung-galaxy-nexus/456796-official-vzw-galaxy-nexus-store-meetup-thread.html#post3575336


BTW I dont know if its important but here in FL when you look at the store times locator at VZW.com it shows *special hours for friday. Could it be due to the release? I havent checked it in a long time, so I dont know if its a holiday sorta thing

I am quite jealous of the NY and NJ peeps who got to play with the GNex today. Although I also find it comforting that everyone reporting in is floored by the experience.

To all those stating that they don't use Facebook sync because they don't want 1000+ contacts in your phone:

You do realize you can select "sync with existing contacts", right? It will only pull down pictures and information about people that are currently in your contacts.

I really like this feature because when friends call me, the phone displays their default Facebook picture. If they change their default Facebook picture, the next time my phone syncs with Facebook, it will update their picture.

Honestly I'm not that concerned about the materials of the phone. I have used my fascinate for just over a year now and dropped it on the hard operating room floor way more times than i care to admit and it still looks close to new, with the exception of a few scratches on the side from said drops. I wouldn't mind the increase in weight of a nice metal body and the feel that comes with it. But my plasic fascinate has fared much better than my metal OG droid. Oh and I'm forced to carry a pager, so that is in the same pocket as the phone and neither picked up scratches from that.

You can just choose to show contacts with "contacts on this phone" as well.

I'm actually very curious about this, because "build quality" seems like such an easy-to-understand term but I'm finding it difficult to actually pin down what it is...
Exactly.

It's the term that everyone bandies about and everyone agrees what it means - until asked to define it.

The IBM Fellows will tell you that quality is a binary - you have it or you don't and any scaling of it is just a cover up.

To me, the term build quality is a nebulous idea, it's a form of scaling. This one has better build quality - like this one has more one-ness (because quality is a binary).

In my mind, I don't go by this because opinions vary - and they vary across many subtle factors.

My personal idea of construction quality - did other phones in this class or from this maker get a reputation for lots of infant mortality issues?

This is a new class for Samsung, so I look at their record and they come up good on construction quality.

Next part of build quality - no brains, just emotions.

It's a handset. I pick it up and roll in my hand a few ways. If my gut says something's wrong, I trust my gut, put it down and try the next thing until my gut tells me it's good.

I can't put my hands' impressions into words and I know that my hands don't have their own brain - but for a handset, I trust my hands' feedback as much as my brain's.

Anyway - that's just me and that's just one more opinion on this build quality stuff.

When you boot the phone for the first time, you will be prompted to create a new google account or sign into your existing google account. You will need your password if you already have an account with google.

You guys are mean.
Sorry - was helping my son step into rooting his Samsung.

First root - first step into a larger world (and I'm digging the theme he's going with a lot).

Good first root -

Yeah, this is what I do. But in the past I have accidentally synced with everyone and it is such a pain.
