Yeah most likely a good decision GABKICKS
, especially coming directly from a ‘dumb’ (basic) phone.
My first smart phone was only a little over a year ago, a Samsung Galaxy Exhibit II 4G, so while I’m coming over from that phone I assumed certain things about all smart phones would be somewhat similar to a degree … WRONG.
You can call it BLOATWARE
Software the Manufacturer and/or Service Provider install on your phone, but at least SOME of it sure made things simple and easy, and I’m having to adjust to finding ways around it and/or getting used to this so called pure ‘GOOGLE
’ experience using a NEXUS.
Example, I guess either Samsung or T-Mobile had a proprietary “Accounts & Sync
” app that sure is easier to work with than what Google has … for the life of me I can’t seem to get but 2 email accounts to work for importing my contacts info into the Google ‘contacts / phone-book’ ? With the Samsung I not only have my 4 email address, but also Facebook, contacts off T-Mobile ‘My Life’ contacts I can enter on the web and also what I enter in the phone … and they ALL sync up and combine and use the Facebook Photo as the contact avatar pic on my phone … I MISS THAT on this NEXUS, so far the best I can work around it is trying to use this Sync ME app and re-entering my contacts list onto my Google+ account ? I dunno if anyone has a better Idea I’d love to hear it, but so far that’s a pain I didn’t expect.
The EMAIL browser can sync up and handle all 4 accounts, but truth be told I liked the way the Older Samsung phone handled it, at least so far, this google Mail app is maybe TOO oversimplified, there is only a small color bar to indicate which email account the mail is coming from, while there’s this HUGE COLOR BLOCK with the FIRST LETTER of the Email Subject that makes scrolling through your emails a Candy Colored mess IMO. Might have to look into a different MAIL Browser APP ?
ON the PLUS yeah this phone is FAST and SMOOTH … like BUTTER, 10x’s better then the push a button and wait 10 seconds or get a black screen I was starting to get from the old Samsung, but on the NEGATIVE there is some changes that will take some time to adjust to, and I’m not sure GOOGLE for EVERYTHING is really such a great answer now after all ? will have to see how I adjust to it as time goes on I suppose ?
