Default Renaming gallery images and couple questions

Is there a way to rename your images in gallery?

When your screen times out, is the only way to get back to active screen by just clicking the on switch on right side of phone?

Also, is there a way to increase the screen viewing time before it times out?

I don't believe there is another way of doing other than the power button, sorry.

But I think to increase the screen viewing time you'd just have to adjust how long before the device sleeps. Do that by:

Pull down the notifications bar and select the setting icon > select Display > select Sleep > change to a maximum of 10 minutes.

You can also make it so that it never sleeps while on the charger:

Settings > Developer Options > check Stay Awake

Has anyone noticed how much of a difference having a live wallpaper compared to a still has on the battery? I'm thinking that with this powerful of a screen, it'd have to be a significant difference, however my battery life has been tremendous (at least 12 hours with moderate use and live wallpaper). Anyone feel like testing it out, haha... I'm lazy but would love to hear the results.

Live wallpapers will only use battery more quickly when you have the screen on. So the affect on battery life will be dependent on how much you use the phone with the screen on. When the screen is off, or when you are talking on the phone, the live wallpaper does not reduce battery life. Also, the demands of each live wallpaper are different, so battery reduction can vary from wallpaper to wallpaper.

Oh, and I just saw something I wanted to mention. I'm not sure how long VZW has been doing this, but I purchased a car charger for my Nexus when I was there and I think it's AWESOME that it has a USB port to charge two phones at once. I usually get my accessories on eBay from China, so I guess this could be a very old upgrade, but I wasn't aware this had been done. Just thought it was cool, so I wanted to make sure everyone knew about it incase that would solve one of their common dilemmas!

Found it myself....just hold down email message and it says it is selected and then touch any other message you want to delete and then touch the trash can. I don't have the box next to my email messages that you refer to.

I saw that but when I enter it just after the *86####, and call, it says the feature update cant be completed.

How do you enter it?

Edit:

Nevermind I found it. After the *86, press the *# key and they is a button for pause which inserts a comma, and then enter your pin. It works for me with just one comma.

You could long press the app to pull up the app info selector than once you are in the app info page you could force close it if you are concerned.

I just use Google Voice and assign it to handle all my Voicemail, that way it shows up in the notification bar, I can read the transcript of the voicemail as well listen to it through the Google Voice app, and can even have the information emailed to me as well.
Of course this assumes that you are talking about a U.S. account.

I am not sure if this works on a smart phone for dialing into the carriers actual voicemail system but I know that when I had a feature phone you could enter a character into a phone number to create a pause, I think it was a comma but it's been years so that could be wrong, so you could enter a number for voicemail as xxx-xxx-xxxx,,code and it would dial the number then pause a few seconds and then enter in the code.

i dunno if this was a quirk on my phone, but my password is 7 numbers, and it wasn't working in that format, because apparently the tones were being sent to quickly to register. i added another , in the middle, and it works now.

HTC cable should work. With your phone connected to your PC, have Windows search for updates. When I did this Windows recommended as an optional update a new driver for my Samsung removable device. I installed this driver and my PC to Galaxy Nexus connection works much better. I have Windows vista on my PC.

Thumbs up

Came from iphone 4 then to razr and now to nexus and loving it!

For those of you that closely monitor your battery this is the first android device ive used that doesnt count the battery percentage in 10 digit intervals so if your using battery app that puts the battery percebtage in the status bar like "battery status" it wont show 30% when your really at say 37%

Coming from gingerbread i typically clear out my.notifications from the status bar pull down ... i noticed in ICS you can swipe left and right to clear them out --- more fun

Resizing widgets --- if the widget is compatible you can do a hold press and resize it wider or longer (very similiar to launcher pros paid version) this works with beautiful widgets

Anybody else finding it annoying swiping hoirzontally through app drawer and pictures? Trying to get over this hurdle

I'm very sorry if this has been asked already, but does anyone know how to get light flow to allow other apps to use the light function? I'm loving light flow, but want my Astrid Task app to also blink. Any work around? As always, thank you?

Drag an app to the quick launch bar at the bottom of the screen. Now drag another app to the same location. It creates a folder there with both apps. Click the folder and both apps pop up just like on the home screen.

No idea if this will actually be useful or not. Just thought it was cool. You can have access to more than 5 common apps from any home screen page.

Along with this if you place an app in there by accident. No need to delete the entire folder. You can open the folder and drag that app out.

Default Improve Face Unlock

After you've set up your face unlock, you can go back into "Security" and click on "Improve face matching." There, you can set additional "faces" (e.g., with glasses, hats, different angles, different lighting, etc.) I've found that after adding several faces, the face unlocking is even more accurate.

Yea that's what I was using on my X. I was using the ICS theme as well, so I was hoping multiple lock screen stuff would be included in ICS for customizing like that. I like when it's built into the OS instead of adding another app.

I don't use face unlocking but this is a good tip and an amazing feature.

From homescreen:

app drawer -> settings -> security -> improve face matching

if you use face unlock, the "screen lock" setting should be set to "face unlock" and "improve face matching" is the next thing right below that.

ETA: Doing this definitely seems to speed up the face recognition quite a bit. So especially if you're using face unlock largely to have it unlock super fast, you should take the time to do this a few times.

I do have the paid version, for $1.99 why not? Here is what it looks like on mine:

if you use face unlock, the "screen lock" setting should be set to "face unlock" and "improve face matching" is the next thing right below that.

ETA: Doing this definitely seems to speed up the face recognition quite a bit. So especially if you're using face unlock largely to have it unlock super fast, you should take the time to do this a few times.
Agreed. I took one of me in a hat, without a hat, in my hoody (hood up), and all kinds of different normal attire.... now it actually surprises me how well it works!

I think you are in too many pages...

It's just Settings > Security

then it should look like this:

ImproveFM.jpg

You can go in there as many times as you want to get a better match. Hope this helps.

***EDIT - Just saw that you said it was a UK version. Guess that's the reason. Sorry, didn't see that before I posted.

Anyone on 4.0.1 should probably check for updates manually. I thought the GNex was supposed to be on 4.0.2 right now. Mine is...

I hope this hasn't been posted yet.

If you use face unlock and the lighting is low or it's dark out, you can get to your PIN screen more quickly by touching the small lock on your screen.

You can choose whether to show the check boxes or not in the GMail settings. If you don't show the check boxes then you select multiple emails by long pressing on one, then pressing on the others.

I use Exchange and it works flawlessly for email, contacts and calendar. Ask your IT department. They may need to give you access for it to work. Mine did.
