    Whatever it is, I'd consider it a bug that needs to be fixed.

    I know it's been said before, but something like Tasker can help with that. Add a rule that whenever you arrive or leave a certain location, start or stop an app.

    If you're carrying on long conversations on a PC and your phone is constantly receiving the messages notifications and reacting to them, yeah I could see it consuming some juice.

    But AFAICT that's not how it works on my Rez, where after my Rez is woken up from sleeping there's a flurry of activity as GTalk displays all of the messages that came in since it was last awake.

    Ohhhhhhhhhh, I'd heard of that but didn't realize what it was. Wow you guys should be psyched -- as soon as it gets fixed you should see, what, 20% more battery life?

    For those who may be interested, here are 3 comparison shots with 3 different camera apps on the Galaxy Nexus. No post production on the images, they have only been resized.

    Samsung Galaxy Nexus Stock Camera

    Samsung Galaxy Nexus CameraZoom FX

    The CameraZoom doesn't alter the image, so the overall quality is similar to the stock camera. However, CameraZoom has a nice feature called Steady Shot, that will waits until the camera is steady before taking the shot. So, it works as an stabilizing effect.

    HDR Camera with all settings in Normal, creates more vibrancy and enhance contrast. Also with HDR you can choose to shoot in 16:9, which is a nice touch.

    anyone running into BugMailer auto generated reports/emails?

    i know it's not ROM specific (it's happened to me on Rootzboat and AOKP, can't recall if it did on stock). i've found a solution in renaming the system file, but i've been unable to find a cause...

    i think what's weird is that the bugreport title shows mysid 4.0.2 ICL53F... i'm definitely running 4.0.3 IML74K

    neat camera apps. it sounds like you like camerazoom. of the three... it's my least favorite. and appears to be the least sharp. was the stablizing feature enabled when you took that picture?

    Yes, I had Steady Shot on. CameraZoom is a really nice program, but it doesn't enhance the image automatically, the way HDR does. I set the CameraZoom steady shot to shoot at 1/2 second steady spot, you can set it to shoot until there is 1 second of steady spot.

    And that is why I waited so long to root...I was actually hoping for .3 and some of the fixes that will come with it. As of now, I know I need some other solution.

    And yeah...it would be great to see a 20% increase in battery!!!

    The stock one did appear to be the sharpest, although all three were highly compressed images around 128KB so maybe some detail was lost.

    Thanks for taking the comparison pix Shiva.

    Nice comparison... I do notice alot of noise in the HDR one though. Probably because of the compression

    Long press on the home screen and select nova actions, then toggle notification bar. I then erase the name of the icon and edit it to be invisible, and stick it in the upper right hand corner.

    Why he didn't add the ability to swipe to hide, is beyond me.

    altimax and hansolo, the HDR is not so much noisy as it blurry. it's just the way it shoots, it's not directly related to compression. because it superimposes a few images on top of another, unless the camera is on a tripod the images will get slightly blurry.

    the Steady Shot feature on the Camera Zoom is nice.

    Question for the group...

    My wife's charger for her Kindle Fire is a micro-usb, just like Nexxy's. But it seems to charge much faster, I'm guessing because its ?volted? to charge the larger battery in the tablet. Is using that charger likely to have a detriment effect on my battery's lifetime???

    I'm talking about long term, not worried about if a trickle charge is able to charge the battery more fully or anything... thoughts?

    Don't worry about it man. On Saturday, Tom Brady will show Tebow what a real quarterback looks like.

    Android weather, not very customizable at all, but I did the beautiful/fancy widget thing with the Inc wanted something different.

    Speaking of, I have about 24 "purchased" apps that I no longer use or want to use :p

    My sister, on her own accord, got a GN today. Dropped by and set it up for her, beamed, google video talked, gave her a couple NFC stickers, etc... She said as I walked out her door, "next time you're over here I want you to jailbreak my GN like yours" (husband is an avid iFan) :p
