Just got mine yesterday.. today will be the first full day test. Already snappier and brighter than my old GNex. Only thing I don't like so far is the way it displays my IMAP mail from my server.. looks too much like GMail.

edit.. found the setting to change the display.. nevermind

Make sure you check the notification settings for everything. A lot of apps like to turn them all on by default. I DO NOT LIKE having things vibrate spontaneously inside my pants!

Just got mine today. Ordered Nov 04, so two and a half weeks delivery. Not bad. So far a very nice phone, not that I am an expert on these things. I wasn't thrilled to be charged 10 bucks for a sim card from Koodoo.

Now I am going to sell my Nexus S online. So far I see people asking between $120 and 140, which seems high to me. Anyone have any idea what price I should ask ?

^^^ Just do what you're doing and find a happy medium on a price. If you don't sell it on ebay there is no commission charged right? Not sure, haven't sold anything there for a while.
Getting charged for the sim card sucked!!

Anyone having WiFi connection problems? I seem to loose connection a lot. Still have my Nexus 4 and no problem with that.

Its not an 'issue' its just the way it is. I can view flash video via Dolphin Browser and Chrome, but only on some websites as they have a server side flash player.

Like it or not Flash is out dated and the mobile space is moving on, unfortunately some websites have not yet caught up to this.

I wonder what Google will name next year's Nexus phone? There's a serious naming conflict here.

This is a Nexus 6.



Its other name is "Rachel."

They'd have to license the name. I don't think they'd go with Nexus 6 unless they go up to a 6 inch screen. I'd imagine we'll see "new Nexus 5" or "Nexus 5 2014."

That's exactly what they did with the 7" tablets

My Nexus One doesn't have a 1" screen.

I haven't lost my mind. It's around here...somewhere...
