    Post [APP][4.0+] #NoChromo - A wild ad-blocking browser appears [v51.0.2695.0][2016/04]

    Wow...installed this on my new nexus 5x....loving it! Basically have no reason to root now. Love it! And a heads up to people...I accidentally installed the arm32 version first, and was getting request to sync notifications that wouldn't go away. Correctly installed arm64, and it worked perfectly.

    Post Display Brightness

    I hope we'll see an increase in max brightness in a future update. Hopefully it's just a matter of pushing a little more voltage to the screen. It's not unusable...but using the phone yesterday in the car, a little bump in brightness would have been welcome. Auto-brightness is fairly...

    What do you like best out of the Amzer and Nillkin? Looking to get one of those. What I really want is for CruzerLite to make some cases...but who knows if that will happen.

    Post Launcher/Interface discussion.

    Pretty sure the asus launcher doesn't allow changing the grid size. Just got mine yesterday, but been using Google Launcher. Coming from a Nexus 5, and a Nexus 4 before that, it's what I'm used to. That being said, I'll probably switch to nova launcher, because there are a number of Asus apps...

    Use a non-quickcharging charger...like one from a previous phone. But if you're seeing crazy heating issues, I'd get a replacement phone.

    Post A discussion about RAM

    My zenfone 2 is getting delivered today. I'm VERY much looking forward to Android 5.1 on it. When my Nexus 5 went from 5 to 5.1, it was sooo much better. I'm expecting the zenfone 2, s6, etc, to see similar improvements.

    Boostmaster is what they call the quickcharger. That being said, you shouldn't have to baby the phone and make sure it isn't "doing anything" while it charges.

    Post wireless charging solution thread

    That's pretty cool. I like wireless charging because I'd rather not wear out my micro usb...but that setup kinda marries you to wireless charging all the time. I'd have to rig up wireless charging in the car and at work...not just at home. You use something like that?

    Thread How are Zenfone 2 themes?

    Hi all. Coming from a Nexus 5...new Zenfone 2 will be here friday. First thing I'll do is probably switch to google launcher and google keyboard...get as close to a Nexus feel as I can. How is the theme engine? Does it change the drop down shade? Settings screens?

    Yours don't turn on every time you touch the screen? Mine is T-Mobile. What is yours? And I'm not keeping $700 phones that I'll have to root and put custom Roms on hopefully sometime in the future.

    Post The constantly turning on capacitive buttons...

    OCD mainly. I shouldn't have to push a general area of the phone and have it do something. Heck, half the promo shots of the phone make it look like there is a light printing of the buttons, but in reality it's blank.

    I feel like I'm beta testing the phone right now, and I don't want to do that for full price. I'll get my money back during my grace period, and maybe in 6 months if things are wildly different, I can just buy them again. Right now I have a N5 and my wife has an N4. I want to check out the N6...

    Post The constantly turning on capacitive buttons...

    They could have printed something on the phone...but for the sake of making the phone prettier and more iphone like, they didn't. Not to mention the power save mode throttles cpu too...so that's hardly a long term solution. Not keeping a $700 phone in hopes that they'll add an option to turn...

    So viewing the exact same hangout on my nexus 5 and new S6 gives totally different results. Everything is great on the nexus 5, but s6 pictures are pixelated, and sometimes rotated incorrectly. Anyone else having problems with hangouts?

    Will try and take one. Just opened up the second S6 I ordered, and its screen looks a lot better. Got two white phones, and think I'd rather have black, so will probably just return the one with a bad screen for a black one.

    Thread Amoled screen color consistency...

    On my new s6, with a completely white screen...it's noticeably redder at the top, and gets whiter/yellower as it moves towards the bottom of the screen. How is everyone else's screens?

    Post Moved to S6 from which device & why

    As far as I know, that's because Auto mode moves to a slower shutter in lower light situations. I'm guessing there's something in the manual options that would help. Of course a dslr is going to be better...but I don't usually take that out to eat, to church, etc.

    Post Making your S6 as "vanilla" android as possible....

    Hopefully the built-in themer will get a lot of support so we have a lot of choices. Samsung has some built in do not disturb stuff though right? On my nexus 5 I use "Nights keeper" at night so I get phone calls, but everything else is silent. Can set whitelists and everything.

    I can live with that. Does the built in themes affect the look though? Can set a different theme to mess with the shade, and then use Nova.

    Looks good. Any good ways to mess with the pulldown and quick settings? Seems like the notification shade and settings pages are the only thing that will be "touchwiz" at that point.
