Anyone else seeing a noticeable increase in battery life on their Verizon Galaxy Nexus after the Jelly Bean update? I have been getting around 2-3 more hours on a medium use day and even more than that on a day when I use the phone less.
I was having some issues where the screen would become unresponsive and refuse to wake, but that was because I had to re-authorize Light Flow in the Accessibility settings. Besides that, I've had not problems. Anyone noticing better performance or any issues...
If anyone is a Verizon wireless Galaxy Nexus Owner and you want Jelly Bean/ Android 4.1 it is slowly rolling out, but this force updates it:
-Go into Setting -> Apps -> All -> Google Services Framework
-You will see a button for “Clear Data”; clear it.
-Go into your dialer and type *#*#2432546#*#* - This will cause a ‘force checkin’. You will notice that it shows “checkin succeeded” across the top.
Go back to Setting -> About Phone -> System updates and then click the...
last week "samsung yakjujp" versions of Galaxy Nexus finally received 4.0.4. Is there an ETA on when will it receive the Jellybean update?
So after a year on Windows Phone 7.5 I've decided to return to Android but I'm not sure which phone to get. I know the S3 is the top of the line phone right now but getting it would involve extending my Tmobile contract. I saw that google recently dropped the price of the Galaxy Nexus to $350 which is quite an attractive no contract price. Which should I go for? The most important thing for me is battery life with performance a close second. Outside of the 1GB of RAM i don't see much of a...
I'm a Windows Phone user who wants to go back to Android. But I'm far from my contract renewal date, and I'm squeamish about paying for the off-contract One X or SIII.
Is the Galaxy Nexus still worth picking up, especially in light of the upcoming Jelly Bean update? The price drop to $349 for the unlocked GSM version has gotten my attention.
I own a Galaxy Nexus and an HP tm2t (tablet with active digitizer). I used the tablet for pen-based note-taking but really have little use for it now that I've graduated. The screen isn't great and it's so heavy that I've caught myself browsing more with my phone. I was thinking of waiting until later this year to replace it with a Surface but since the Nexus 7 is looking so (unexpectedly) great, I'm considering getting one as an impulse buy. What do you think? Is there a need for this device...
Finally got around to rooting my Galaxy Nexus the other day. I'd been meaning to do it for a while and just wasn't able to find a spare hour until now. Been really loving CM9 on it, and have also been playing around with MIUI, but am curious what other ROMs and apps you guys might recommend.
My Droid 2 just died on me recently and I really wanted to get the Galaxy Nexus, but my experience with Android has always been like a boyfriend girlfriend relationship :). If you know what I mean. My other options is either is the 4S on VZW or get the Nexus with my pending upgrade ? or upgrade to the 4S and buy the Galaxy unlocked and get a prepaid contract with unlimited with it ? There I will be able to get the next Google phone if Google will stay loyal to selling hardware.
