    Default nexus 4 excitement over ?

    now that you got your nexus 4 when the last batch shipped , is the excitement over for you ? play with it for a couple of hours , and finally just put it down . i had to manually enter my contacts but that wasnt so bad , i practiced something . when i got up this morning did i pick it up and start playing again , nope . i had set up bluetooth for my truck ( that was not fun either ) but finally did it after 3 tries . i want to root it at some point in my life , but for right now im going to let it go . i downloaded a couple of apps from google play but deleted them shortly afterwards . my next big goal in life will be to figure out how to shut down some of the un-necessary things that run in the background ( is it because the apps are connected to the internet ? ) need to do a little better search on the forum for that info . setting up apns and getting it to run with at t i only had 1 entry , not the 6 or 7 shown online . everything works too .

    I've only one day in, and no where near bored. This phone compared to my last phone is such a drastic difference. I feel like I went from a Escort to a Lamborghini

    I don't have a Nexus 4 but thought about getting one. Then there were the supply problems. So I waited, Now my N4 excitement is waning after seeing the sweet screen on the new HTC One.

    Be careful rooting, as you might develop the opposite problem (not being able to put your phone down).

    I've had mine since November. I don't think I'll ever get tired of it, at least until the next Nexus phone comes out I'm just amazed at how powerful and good looking this phone is and still can't believe how little I paid for it. I'll be watching MWC updates because I'm always excited by new gadgets, but unless something incredibly amazing comes out, I'll just be thinking about how a phone I've had for a few months is better than or on par with all of the latest and greatest ones coming out.

    I got my Nexus 4 a week ago and love it. I did get a Nexus 7 on Wednesday and have been using it more though just because of the bigger screen. I'll always take both with me although I can use both for calls now. I love both of them!

    Um, I've had mine since November, and I love it. The initial hype may be gone, but its still a smartphone. I don't think there's a time when I'm actually bored of it.

    It is my goal to become bored with the nexus 4, or any other phone/gadget/electronic device...the sooner the better. Playing around with electronics takes too much time from the rest of my life. The step from my former thunderbolt to the nexus was not a big one, so my nexus has quickly come up to speed and is now just my regular portable device.

    Maybe I'm just weird but its less excitement and more passion. I absolutely hate the phone companies and I love Google. The farther I can get away from the one and towards the other the better.

    I am really looking forward to getting the nexus10, and of course Google Glass(es). I hope Fiber makes its way to Portland some day and that Google gets directly involved with providing a mobile data service. Owning Google's products for me is about the idea of supporting Google. The fact that they make kick *** products is just icing on the cake.

    Nope... no carrier bloatware...that's reason enough to stay excited. Knowing this phone will get future updates before carrier branded phones keeps the excitement going. With pure android the personalization options keep the phone fresh.

    Just like any toy, it's gonna get old.

    But I'm still amazed by the speed of this thing. Just think, I went from a Nexus S with 3G to this monster with H+. It's blaaaazing.

    I've had it for two weeks and still do a lot with this phone. Such an amazing piece of technology. I just put cyanogenmod on it a couple a days ago, which is amazing.

    Not at all bored yet. The Nexus 4 is so much better than my old Verizon Galaxy Nexus was. This phone is faster, has better battery life, and way nicer screen. Getting updates also keeps it interesting, gives you new stuff to tinker around with.

    I ordered mine on launch day and got it maybe a week later. I love this phone. Coming from phones with single core processors, a fraction of the RAM, less than HD displays, and running gingerbread... makes a HUGE difference to me. The initial "oh my gosh, its finally here and in my hands" feeling may be gone but I still can't put it down.

    Also, this is the first phone I bought online. I felt like a kid on Christmas morning when it got delivered. One last side note, I thoroughly enjoyed unboxing the phone and setting it up. May be a small thing to most people but I used to HATE seeing a sales rep take my phone out the box after I just bought it and be the first person to put their hands on it. It just ain't right. Anyways..

    I find it best to just let Android handle itself as designed. From :

    Android is a multitasking operating system, it was built from the ground up with the ethos of not having to kill tasks ground into its methodology. The designers intentionally left out a task killer and ways to close apps. Just think about this for a second. You gmail app is an app designed by google, but you don’t see a close button anywhere do you? In fact I bet a lot of people don’t know its even running (we will define “running” later). Google did not want to burden the mobile user with having to close applications when they are “done” with them. They decided to do this on the basis that a mobile user will repeatedly and briefly interact with a wide variety of applications throughout the day.

    Think about your own usage for a minute, I know that this stands true for me, as it will 99.9% of you out there. We use our mobiles on and off, jumping from app to app. For instance, send sms, call friend, check facebook, play a game, make a note, check the weather, etc, etc. Sound familiar? It ought to, as mentioned this is how we use mobiles, and the list can literally go on an on and on.

    Ok so we now understand why google decided not to include exit options, or task killer applications. But it’s going to take more than that to convince you right? Lets drop down a level and discuss what exactly happens when you leave (press home or back) an application. Within android applications, there are two fundamental things you should be aware of, an application, and a process. These two concepts are together what make up an application, and are key to understanding why a task killer is not required.

    What Is a Process?

    A process is an activity that can be performed by 1 or more applications. When you think of an application actually doing something, for example playing music, posting a message to facebook or syncing your rss feed, these are processes. However, it is important to note that just because a process exists, does not mean it may be actually; doing anything. If you like, it may be easier to say that processes may be in an idle or active state.

    What Is an Application?

    An application is something that makes use of many different processes to provide you with some wanted functionality. For example, the official facebook or twitter apps. An application may also be idle or active, depending if it has any active processes currently associated with it.

    When you leave an application, that application is allowed to keep its process running in the background (true multitasking) allowing it to carry on doing whatever work it needs to do. For example continue to download the rest of a webpage or playing music. However, just because an application leaves processes “running” in the background, does not mean they are actually doing anything at all. They are being kept in memory just in case you are going to use them again soon. Many people cite this as a battery drain, nothing could be further from the truth however. Storing a footprint of an application in memory uses exactly the same amount of battery as it would if that section of memory is free. If you continue to open applications, then more of your memory will be used.

    Nowhere near bore for me

    It goes in phases for me. I get bored of phones quickly but every time I use another phone I start to really miss my nexus and i run right back.

    No, Bored wouldn't be the right word. That would be like getting bored of using a really good power tool! You just really look forward to every opportunity you get to use it. Its a pleasure and makes you smile and appreciate it. Your glad that you didn't get a cheaper one with less features. It makes work fun!

    If your a power user 24/7 that word never enters the picture.
