    I wasn't trying to say it was perfect. I wouldn't know because I don't have it yet, which was what I was getting at. It was a joke guy.


    I'd be more annoyed I gave money to Harvey Norman than anything..

    Yep, using LightFlow here, works fine. Only gripe is during the "test all notifications", they only show up green, but during normal operation, all is a-ok.

    Had a quick look, do you need to setup notifications for all apps, including sounds etc? or does it keep the default notifications and add led?

    Different Departments are usually run by different franchisee, IE: one for Furniture and one for Electrical

    This was the case when I worked for them over 10 yrs ago...

    Franchisee.. yes.. but they don't own the franchise, they just look after it for them..
    it can be taken off them, or they can be transferred to another store, or even sacked etc.. just like an employee

    Been using mine for 24 hours now. Battery life is much improved over my Galaxy Nexus, same with Signal strength it seems. I have the official bumper on it which I really like, the glass and screen feel great and I wont be putting those horrid screen protectors on. While the phone doesn't do any single thing amazingly well, it's obviously great value for money. Currently running Paranoid Android ROM which I highly suggest you get if you have rooted your phone (wait till Version 3.0 is out), you will never go back to any other ROM :p

    Only minor cons I can come up with is how hot the device gets under heavy use and the speaker rattle when you shake the phone. Oh and maybe the super short charging cable, almost as bad as the Nexus 7 charger.

    I have the same issue with the volume and on button as well. Hard to press and I often don't press it because I'm pushing on the case rather than the button.

    My biggest gripe by FAR is the fact that android changed the right button to app menu. ITS FUCKING USELESS. why not just have hold home to access that?

    But oh sorry, there can be nothing wrong with the Nexus 4.

    Yes, I know the latter can be changed but quite frankly I'm a noob when it gets to modding phones...

    Lol don't get your kickers in a knot because we laughed at someone complaining about the *only* buttons on the phone :lol:. I haven't had any issues with pressing the case over the buttons. No ones said the phone be is perfect.

    Also yeah the multitask button since ICS was weird. It was basically so non responsive since ICS no one used it. Since JB however its substantially better in response times. I sometimes use it a lot and sometimes rarely. Just one of those things that's situational I guess. Same with gesture typing.

    Lock screen widgets are also useless and stupid IMO.

    The touch control app is great, as is light flow. This phone is pretty swell.

    ParanoidAndroid

    I was using the ParanoidAndroid ROM for about a week - got it originally to try out those cool looking PIE controls on the extended desktop mode.

    The Hybrid UI layout still doesn't excite me very much and I had random screen wake issues while using AOSPA. I believe it's something to do with the kernel implemented with AOSP builds. I also used AOSPA on my old Galaxy Nexus and was never really a fan either.

    Just flashed a clean copy of rasbeanjelly, which is essentially an inverted blue/black/tron themed ROM and has some 'bionic' commits - proprietary Krait CPU specific code that optimises the OS for the S4 Pro. So far so good, the quick settings menu has a bevy of options you can toggle on/off.

    Take a look at your back button (on screen). A really close look. There's a pixel that isn't illuminated near the head of the arrow. That's going to annoy you until Google updates it.

    You're welcome. :leet:
