    Thread Olixar screen protector

    Thought I would share my experience with this; it's a royal pain to install properly (especially after installing the oem bumper case). BUT, it adds the grip the phone needs in folded mode for one hand use. I just installed it over the screen protector that comes with the phone...

    Thread Restoring apps from Hisuite?

    Mine doesn't, and I'm not totally sure it hasn't always been this way and I am just now noticing it, but it is REALLY annoying. I sent it back to samsung and they sent it right back to me after looking at it for what I suspect was about 3 minutes and determining its totally fine. Just wanted...

    So far the only app I have found that works with "wide view" is chrome. Is there a setting sonewhere to add more apps to this view? For me, wide view is the entire point of a phone like this. LG adding functionality to use the phone purely in wide view mode is pretty much a must for it to be...

    Thread Tencent - No Fan and No 30w power supply

    Just an FYI if you are looking at the tencent 128gb version; it does not come with the rear fan, which is no big deal. But it also doesn't come with the proper 30w power supply to power the mobile desktop dock. So if you want to use that, you'll have to pay $50 for the charger as well, as that...
