I thought every other android phone except nexus lets u import fb contacts, according to gsm arena that seems to be the case also google has some problem with the way fb contacts are stored on the phone, android is prefered from connectivity and sharing if it doesnt do that, then! ! Guys can anybody confirm abt the fb feature people who already own the phone, respond!! Its not released in my country
My other post appears to have been deleted lol
This is just a quick note on the battery life of the Galaxy Nexus. It has had about 4 or so charge cycles and I must say it appears that the discharge of the battery without use is a lot better than from new. I still maintain however, that manufacturers claims of 240+ hours on standby are very different than real life use!
Car companies make claims within certain parameters of how many l/100 a car can do. I expect manufacturers of phones to do the same. All they state are the highest values they claim to have achieved presumably without any apps installed and now lights on, without phone calls nor texts, in fact without any form of use with a phone! This is my opinion.. I digress.
I am currently @ 48% with 44hours on standby looking at the stats almost every hour to take a screenhot. I disabled WIFI and bluetooth and have the screen on minimum brightness..I went to the app options and force stopped any apps I wasnt using (FB, MSN).
Previous values when new: 13% @ 33 hours and 11% @ 21 hours, this is without calls and a couple of texts...I think there is a lot to be said about background activity among apps that wish to connect to internet and take your phones serial number too....
When you got battery performance stats from previous phones and ipods etc they did what they said it would do...so I am a little irate with todays claims.
Anyhow, I like the phone, its large screen, the great little widgets etc etc. Its easy to use ( intuitive ) what else can I say...
I do hope this is a diplomatic review.
After the gingerbread update Google phones were restricted from sync with fb contacts due to privacy issues.

Li-ion batteries are different from Ni-MH, Ni-Cd batteries, and charging the battery more often between uses actually helps maintain the battery's good health.
Li-ion batteries have no memory and the battery does not need periodic full discharge cycles, it is actually better to avoid full discharge.

however, gsmarena was also spot on when they said that GNex has one of the worst screen-size-to-capacity ratios ever.
i also wonder what's the exact measurement of Gnex on that 2100mah extended batt?
nahh.. already selling off my tab plus, will get Gnex as soon as possible..
once 7.7 become avail, i'll ditch one of my s2/incoming Gnex.
will let it known in here :-)
thanks bro, I'm happy to see Ur very confident in your new device.. i hope i will too..
