    Android Market vs. Google play store

    I preferred the old name/image.. all the effort to build up the android brand, just to take the name of it's market away to something more generic like "Google Play"... I think the Google brand already gets PLENTY of exposure as it is.. and miss my little android buddy being the namesake of his own market

    SECURE STORAGE (APPROX) 512 MB
    REMOVABLE STORAGE TYPE microSDHC
    REMOVABLE STORAGE (MAX) 32 GB



    Galaxy Nexus specifications:


    • CPU: 1.2 GHZ dual core processor
    • Memory: 1GB RAM
    • Storage: 32GB

    It looks like the storage is onboard. I did not see anything about adding an SD card to the Nexus.

    Still, the difference between a single-core operating at maximum 600MHz and a dual-core operating at 1.2 GHz coupled with 256MB vs. 1 GB RAM means a significant difference in performance. Thus, the larger GP can't help but run slower on my original Droid A855.

    Google Play Store, just sitting idle is using 6% of CPU time. That is more than the Android OS at 4% and Wi-Fi at 4%, Lookout at 3%, Bluetooth at 3%, Media at 3% and Gmail at 2%. I'm not sure why there is a separate listing for Android System at 16%, but Display at 46% takes the most, Cell Standby and Phone Idle are both 7%. Those are the only items using more CPU than Google Play Store.

    When the GP "update" was originally released, I noticed an immediate slowdown. I posted a bug report to Google about that. However, what is there to do? Google isn't going to backtrack on this based on users of an "obsolete" phone.
    lol, you don't need to post specs for both. I still have my D1 too. Is yours rooted?

    I find it a very juvenile replacement name for branding. I prefer the android market. I dislike the new name!!!!!
