Juice Defender and Galaxy Nexus

So, I started using the Juice Defender app to attempted to eliminate my battery complaints with the Galaxy Nexus. I had really good success with Juice Defender with my OG Droid with the exception of the problems with Pandora.

I am pleased with the results so far.  Prior to using the app I was getting at the most 7 5 hours on the battery with little use of the phone. Since using It I have been getting 10.5 on average. This is with the free version with default settings.

Please take a look at the screen shots. I think there is a case to upgrade.

Now if I can find other options for all the dislikes in my last post this phone might be perfection... we'll see!

1 Week with Galaxy Nexus

So, I've been tinkering with my Galaxy Nexus almost non stop for a week now and have a few observations.
Overall it's a great phone. Of all the reviews I have read, I don't think  my dislikes are too far off base.
Basically, I think I'm impressed with the phone. I know that doesn't sound like a raving review but I'm a picky person so this is pretty good!I have only been in personal contact with one other person with this phone so I can't really judge the true feelings about this device.


  1. Way too many's really more important the things I don't like!


  1. The audio of the speaker is EXTREMELY low while talking and ringtones and notifications.
  2. Phone doesn't charge effectively while connected to USB and "working"
  3. Phone charges EXTREMELY SLOW!
  4. Battery life SUCKS butt. The longest I believe I have gotten is 7.5hrs.( with very little use)
  5. Camera is a bit on the grainy side. I think my Samsung Saga took better pics than this!
  6. When first turning the phone on it takes the coverage TOO LONG to connect--only 3G, I have 4G turned off
  7. The lockscreen doesn't prevent access to the phone-such as the notification bar.
  8. There appears to be a lag in the auto rotation of the screen at least 3-4 seconds
  9. Dislike that the earphone plug is at the bottom of the phone
  10. Stock ring and notification tones suck (doesn't matter you can customize all phones usually have one or two that you like)
  11. No expandable memory ( I know this is "part" of the phone but I still don't like it)
  12. Face lock screen- doesn't recognize me with bangs...I still look the same basically...geesh
  13. When adding an app the icon gets placed on homescreen (wth is that about?)
  14. Facebook has not worked properly on several occasions
  15. I have had several FCs in the 1 wk, 1 day I have had the phone.
  16. Screen doesn't always go off when on a call (where is the sensor- I know OG Droid had this issue too)
The following could be lack of knowledge on the subject, but I will mention and hope for feedback as I also will researching:
  1. If you factory reset this phone---you lose EVERYTHING as opposed to if you had an SD card
  2. No way to do a soft reset.
  3. Syncing seems a bit more complicated  (I had an icon for music but it apparently never transferred)
For now this is it...I should have been documenting better but I wasn't...

MyGalaxyNexus :-)

So I finally upgraded from my OG Droid!! Its been 3 hours and I'm satisfied... not yet in love...bit I can feel the sparks!

Hour 1- the ride home...on my first call I experienced great sound quality, which is key for me as I have some issues with hearing sometimes. I do absolutely love the screen when on a call. I always wanted the picture of the contact to take up most of the screen instead of that little box.

Hour 2- initial set up phase... I plugged in the phone to charge it. Its still charging ...please tell me because I'm using it too :-/

Hour 3 - finding things I don't I will fully test when its done charging but why can you still view the notification bar when the screen is locked? What foes the lockscreen represent if its not preventing unwanted access??? Also, I put all my music onto this phone from old memory card. I have all my Mary albums and not one of them moved over! WHY??? Again will fully test at a later date. And why do the apps automatically put an icon on the home screen? I *sigh*

Moving forward as my girl Miki says...I will keep you posted!

Thanks for reading...stay tuned.
