    Dropped the razr and couldn't be happier.


    I noticed google + is integrated.

    Questions;
    -Can I not sync Google+?
    -My work contacts on my contact list can I seperate them?
    - is there a way for a webcam to be on without a notice or popup?

    Recently i have been thinking and I am feeling like I have less and less privacy.



    Any suggestions?

    Congrats on picking up the Nexus.

    You should be able to sync G+ once you log into the app.

    Not sure about the webcam thing.

    I'm with you on feeling of less privacy, but that's how technology is. Could always go back to a "dumbphone" though :D

    After you sign in to Google + you can go to Settings > Accounts & Sync and click you gmail account and deselect Google +.
    I believe that for you cam to work covertly something has to be installed on your phone, just make sure you aware of what's on there and your privacy will be preserved.
    I believe you can group your address book anyway you like..

    I to had the RAZR before the Nexus but there is no comparison.. DancingNexus

    ?

    The Nexus keyboard is among the largest on a touch screen. You could hold the phone in landscape which should make the keyboard keys larger. You could also switch to a different keyboard, there's lots of options out there. Swype is good.

    Musclemilk must have some hulk hands :D

    Really though the nexus has one of the biggest screens along with the biggest keyboards. I have some fairly large hands myself and believe me this keyboard is a dream compared to my old incredible which needed the precision of a surgeon from me LOL

    Since it looks like the other questions have been answered, I will take a stab at the webcam one.

    Yes and no on that. Sure it is possible. Anything with an internet connection is accessible to the wrong people, theoretically at least. Realistically though, you should be fine. It should take quite a bit of effort on the voyeur's end to achieve this, probably requiring them to have physical contact with your device. There are added security measures you can do to your device like password lockscreen and/or some sort of security app (like https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lookout <-- that seems to be popular) if you want extra peace of mind.
