    Thread Question Inferior phone and voicemail apps (Google Fi)

    My question is how can I get a feature-rich phone/voicemail app for my new Samsung? My new flip was bought through Google Fi and the phone dialer and voicemail apps are vastly inferior to the app on my previous two phones also from Fi where these functions were integrated into one app. The old...

    Post [REVIEW] Portenzo Bookcase

    If you are reluctant to buy this case because of the wait time like I was, you might like to know that mine had very little handling time. I ordered it on 3/26 and it shipped today on 3/28. I ordered the Bookcase with white cover and sky blue interior plus the intellistand. I skipped the...

    Post [REVIEW] Portenzo Bookcase

    I think the cost of the case compared to the device is irrelevant. If you were buying the case merely as insurance to protect the N7 it would be silly but you wouldn't be interested in this case if protection was the only consideration. Instead the case itself is a luxury item apart from the...

    Post Worse accessories for Nexus 4

    While this isn't specifically for the N4, recently I returned the absolutely worst accessory I have ever bought, the Beacon Remote by Griffin Tech (Universal remote control). The device itself worked ok but the required Dijit Android app was so bad as to render the entire device useless. I could...

    I would be inclined to consider this a fault with the orb rather than the case. I use the Zens charger and it works with a reasonably thick TPU Cruiserlite case.

    Post Is there any flash drive that will mount on microUSB

    Yes, the OTG cables work just fine and can be had for under a dollar off of Amazon or eBay. I think what everyone is wishing for is one that is similar to the regular usb flash drivers that only stick out about 5mm or so. So far what I've see is actually worse than an OTG cable because they are...

    The size of the selection at both Google Play and Amazon is huge; I don't really care which is larger and who knows how they are calculating that figure.

    No, I gave up. I certainly didn't have any space in directory name, nor did I have any extra directory levels. I was trying to revert to stock to update baseband with LG's tool, so I just ended up returning to a rom that didn't require the new baseband, CM 7.2 RC2. Still watching this thread...

    I agree battery is wonky, but in my case I think it is the meter and not the actual battery life. This is especially true when flashing nightly's every morning. Sometimes I will go 20 hours and still have 45% and sometimes be down to 45% by about 5 hours. I have rebooted phone and have gone from...

    This is a frequent problem that occurs on some G2Xs. The heating up indicates that the phone is stuck in some kind of loop where it is working real hard to accomplish nothing.

    Post battery life?

    Battery will last much longer if you remove it from your phone and store it in a cool dry place. I have tried both of these ROMs and get good battery life with either, make sure you do a battery calibration after changing ROMs, this has improved battery life for me from 8 hours to 1.5 days...

    Yes, it is amazing the difference in opinion on this subject. I easily get 16 hours of battery life with moderate to heavy usage, and 1.5 days with light usage. And I am using plain CM7 RC1, without any CPU/Battery apps. Trinity or Faux kernels reduce this considerably regardless of the OC/UV...

Can anyone kill the chipmunks? Link to...

    Post Battery Life: 1d 12h?

    I have no doubt, there is nothing inherently wrong with the stock rom as long as you root it and get rid of the bloatware. Getting bad battery life is more a matter of something being wrong, instead of a particular rom being right. I don't really understand the battery info built into Android...

    Post Battery Life: 1d 12h?

    I understand your point, but how often are you actually using 4g. It is not necessary for syncing email or other background tasks, in fact on my phone Pandora runs the same on 2g as 4g. And when you do need the performance of 4g it is 2 clicks away, one swipe to pull down the notifications and...

    Post Battery Life: 1d 12h?

    I have tried virtually every ROM and kernel combination for the G2X and for my phone and usage pattern I have had the best luck when I returned back to CM7, currently RC1 without OC/UV kernels, without SetCPU/PimpMyCPU, and without Juice Defender, or any similar such programs. My gains appear to...
