General Thought on Galaxy Nexus

Miembro

Hey Everyone, who else got their Nexus yesterday?!  I wanted to start a thread to see some other thoguhts about the phone from people or issues people might be having. So far I have not had any major issues. Only things is within an hour of phone being on, which was fully charged, I was down to 89% battery today....I have all wifi/GPS/ etc off. Even turned off 4G since it is not in my area yet, granted ive been using it alot but we shall see.

that's probably pretty good. expect to get about 3 hours of ACTUAL use. depending on how you use it, you may get through a whole day on one charge, but you may not. if you are using it for 3-4 hours straight, then it's going to be dead. if you power up and it's idle most of the day and you use it for 3 hours periodically, then you will likely get through a whole day on one charge. for example, if you take it off the charger at 7 am but only play with it periodically (calls, texts, apps, etc), but it is idling most of the time, then it will last all day. if you take it off the charger at 7 am and watch a movie and then browse for an hour, it will be nearly dead by noon. actual useage is what to watch on it.

The only minor disappointment for me is the lack of a global audio setting. I can't tweak the sound of all apps on the phone at one time. I'm coming from a Droid X where this was really nicely done. Outside of that I'm very impressed. The screen, camera and  overall  performance is very nice.

Hopefully VZN will make a separate section for the Galaxy Nexsus like they have for the DROID X.  I'm sure we'll start seeing any issues start popping up as more people get that phone. I went to the Verizon store yesterday to just see and play with it. I was very impressed with its speed (4G), brilliant screen, and the camera (fast & nice clear pics even though its only 5MP).

 

I did notice that it comes with only a 32GB Internal memory and apparently no external card capabaility. Is that true? And the battery looks removable?

 

have fun with that ..  will probably upgrade in the next 4 months or so.

Issues:

Tons of people(including myself) are reporting banding issues/white look grayish with auto brightness turned on/low brightness setting.

 

Also, the worst signal out of the other 4g phones. But I won't complain about it until I actually start getting dropped calls, no connection, etc.

 

While playing music on my speaker, the volume seems to be going in and out.

 

The phone is the slowest charging phone I've ever had. Looks like when the phone is being used, it is either not chargeing or slows down so much that it's pointless, because the battery will still drain if you're using netflix or whatever.

^ This and this!

 

I haven't had any personal experience with 4G phones, but I am getting no 4G signal in a known 4G coverage area.  Friends of mine with other phones are picking up some sort of signal.

 

As for the battery, I'm a little concerned.  I guess it's to be expected with all the bells and wistles this thing has going on (multiple mobile radios, WiFi, GPS, etc)

Had mine since the 15th a few of problems I'm having is the 4g signal is almost nonexistent in a known strong area 3g is a little better but when it switches back and forth Sometime I lose all signals for up to 2 to 3 minutes which is unacceptable.

The other is battery is 5 hours of very little use.

This may just have to go back I'm having surgery first part of January doctors say they have to take my leg at the knee which will leave me incapacitated up to 6 months till new leg is ready and wife works 12 hour nights more worried a bought losing signal than battery.

Any recommendation on other phones or trouble shooting.

Gracias

I'm also seeing a weird thing happening.  When I turn on WiFi, my 3G signal immediately drops 1-2 bars.  Anyone else seeing this?

Well, if you've been following my experiences lately, then you can imagine what I would suggest. 

 

But that would be a rather crass thing to do, considering your circumstances. So I'll just send along all my hopes and prayers and wish a successful surgery and a speedy recovery for you and your family. 

 

SIncerely, 

Geri O
