Be Careful with the Transformer. I owned one for a whopping 5 days before the charger almost burnt my house down.
I work at the mountain in the Ski School. If youre ever out this way PM me. It will be good to have some fellow Android Phans out this way. Plus the skiing is pretty good too
That's not the point. The point is I have two upgrades to use next year and 9 months isn't a long time to wait if I don't love the Rezound or the Nexus. I realize there is always something better on the horizon but I think some people are hyping this phone up too much. This phone would not satisfy me for 20 months. Sorry.
There are no FM radio functions. The chipset may support it, but it's not implemented.
I'll be up anyway. If orders go live I'm all over it like white on rice.
Wow. I haven't heard of any problems like that. I'll watch it though. Thanks for the heads up.
Can't you get an app like iHeartRadio and just stream stations?
unfortunately, unless somebody patches over another volume fix (scary), the volume will likely underwhelm most. I had a hard time hearing the navigation the other night. I must admit that I don't have the quietest car in the world, but it is a modern family sedan... fortunately, there is a bluetooth solution for those with the appropriate hardware.
I'm quite disappointed with google music's need to reach the cloud - how much bandwidth will it take to use your phone as an mp3 player at three to five MB per four minute song? Unless I'm wrong, that could end up equaling a significant chunk of your monthly data. I'll be transferring all my music through usb plug and using the best music player out there by features
That's the issue haha. They actually gave me one when I got my refurbed Inc. Needless to say, it last about 15 minutes before I threw it away, made the phone unusable on the charger.
Thank you Han for the first real news all day...
and another thing Still no PR's from Verizon at all today? What gives!?
Thanks Han for the relay. Well, this is relatively the same time last week that all the reps started calling and setting up appts. etc. And it sounds like its happening again. A good sign. Lets just see if we can get through tomorrow morning without the bottom falling out, if we are still going strong by lunch tomorrow, I will start to get my hopes up.
Bad cable on the charger or the charger is wonky, outside of voltage spec.
Ruth's Chris just tell them to comp you the cash value of your meal and two drinks and use the money to pay for the phone and extra battery.
I'm afraid to start the countdown again. Every time I count down, Verizon delays the Nexus. So NO MORE COUNTDOWNS!
Ah, the litigious society we live in! I just got a candy cane sucker with a warning label on it! No joke! It says "Caution! Sharp Edges! Hard candy may contain sharp edges that can cause injury. Please enjoy carefully."
No doubt somebody out there is just waiting to cut their lip or tongue on hard candy so they can file a lawsuit. Just amazing
Okay, back to Nexus!
just make sure they don't get confused and butter-fry the phone
This is pretty much gonna be me all day Thursday if I take a Nexus home.
Entire department is still patting themselves on the back for launching the Xyboard
I wish I could get just *one* VZW rep to set up an appointment with me. No one I've called in the Bay Area will commit to anything.
So far it sounds like my biggest hurdles with this phone will be ics in itself. I rarely use the phone as an actual phone. I have yet to use my DInc for navigation. And I might use it for music but headphones would negate a volume issue anyway.
NOW GIMME MY ICE CREAM SAMMICH!!!!!!
Their Filet is the bomb though. God does it melt in your mouth.
Haha, not a fan? There's a Ruth's Chris around the corner from my office here in Boston; I've never been, but I've heard good things about it. Have you had bad experiences there?
Guys, what is your final verdict on the camera? This is my only remaining question. I had always been satisfied by my 8 MP Sony camera that recently kicked the bucket, I'm nervous about "downgrading" to 5 MP (if I choose to only use the SGN camera) (and yes, I know pixels aren't everything, but I'm not sure what else there is to measure picture quality).
Would you humor me and answer a question?
If you were going to Europe for six months, would you be satisfied using the SGN's camera for all your touristy make-memories-in-pictures-to-last-a-lifetime needs? Or would you supplement your SGN with a dedicated camera with more pixels, or better photographic ability as measured by some other metric (despite the drawback of having to carry multiple devices in foreign countries)?
Again - thank you to everyone who has helped talk me through this decision
