Tom, now that makes sense. Thank you very much. I have e-mails on auto sync.
Miss you guys also battery stinks so far but love the phone anyway
And to add a bit...that is actually just a widget with stock android and can be moved/replaced...with CyanogenMod in past builds can be modified with your favorite settings
Tom, although I've been using smartphones for a few years, this is my first android OS so, look forward to learn more about customization, even though for now, I've set it up pretty much how I like it.
also, I got the extended battery last night and it barely adds to the phone's bulk. you can't really tell the difference between extended and standard. the VZW store agent claimed the battery would double the usage VS the 1850 version, which I doubt, but it will certainly now be able to provide a totally useable all day service (if not all weekend) for my needs.
I downloaded it yesterday and I love it. I like removing the Google search and getting the extra row. The icons are a little smaller than before, but still plenty large enough on that big screen.
Now if Nova would allow me to hide the notification bar it'd be perfect.
I am using a TPU case, it does not add much to the phone but will hopefully prevent damages. I never used a case on my DroidX, just a Steinheil Crystal, but it the case was nicked from dropping it only three or four times. The TPU case has some texture on the edges which I was not sure I would like, but it does seem to reduce the slippery factor.
Try Our Groceries...so far I really like it as it syncs between devices. We can add things either on my Nexus or the tablet and they sync.
That's a great tip on the volume buttons, so far that has been my only complaint, I keep accidently changing the volume, I think I will cut out the buttons on the case.
Is there to tilt-lock? Also I assume the A in brightness is for automatic adjustment?
guys, I hate being a Negative Nancy or a Debbie Downer, but after a night with my new phone, I think this one is worse than the first!!
The whites pop a bit more, but now I'm getting the same terrible artifacts in the blacks on videos that someone was complaining about earlier, and there is significant lag when touching on apps or buttons.
I guess I'm going to be that annoying idiot who keeps coming back til its perfect.
Shoot, I should have just stayed with the grayer but super fast and deep-blacked-phone.
As far as Nova goes, you can have the widgets be in the app drawer like normal if you install Nova to the system file (requires root), instead of as a simple apk.
I forgot how to do it, but its in the instructions in that thread about "what apps have you installed" or something like that, in the first post.
Year, he definitely lied to you about getting double the usage, so far I would feel comfortable telling you I probably get an extra hour to hour and a half from it vs stock
No need to miss us- quite a few of the usual suspects are in here!
Yeah, I agree, battery is pretty crappy.
Good Morning Gnexers!
Well, I think my Beloved Nexus Ginny is now complete:
GOOGLE WALLET WITHOUT ROOT!
I was suspicous that this might be malware or something, but Lookout scanned it without flagging it. I successfully added funds and yes: got my free $10!
If you haven't seen it yet, Andhily posted it in his own thread:
So I thought I'd pass on the good news. Enjoy!
EDIT: And suddenly, my favorite gas station apparently takes it! WHOOT I can hardly wait to try it out!
I'm a little perturbed seeing posts here and in the Nexus forum about all the misinformation that VZW store reps are giving to their customers. Completely ignoring all the blatantly incorrect info heard before the Nexus release so that they could sell more useless Razrs, hearing that reps tell people that the sync button is a "tilt lock" and that the extended battery will double your juice is really pretty worrisome. Clearly VZW needs to improve their training. :/
Can you guys do me a favor?
Can you swipe down the notification bar, touch on settings, then tap Display?
When you tap Display, is there a noticeable or significant lag?
I don't want to take it in again if I'm just overreacting.
To chip in on screen talk, I have noticed that with my background (its all black with a white NY in the middle) gets almost burnt into the screen when I open settings. I can see the NY in the screen when I go into settings or any other dark screen and it takes a significant amount of time for it to go away. Its quite subtle, but definitely noticeable.
No lag here... Opens at the same speed all the other tools in that section do
Yeah no lag here either.
Sorry Han, no lag...
None here either.
No lag here but don't panic. There are a lot of variables that could cause that lag.
Anyone install that Google Wallet .apk yet? How well does it work? I'm getting ready to head to the airport and can't install it till later today. Everything's all packed up.
Works great. Haven't tried it at the store yet, but several did with success
Its loaded and I plan on buying a slurpee with it at 7-11!
Where ya headed? (Yes, I'm being nosy)
