Now with the pebble notification enabled in the "Accessabilty, Services" section, the stupid "Talkback" option seems to be on, and speak "Webpage Loaded" and stuff with the default browser. Even with toggling it on and off, the stupid thing just keeps speaking. Using Chrome browser stops the voicing, but it's annoying as hell.

Either way, I don't notice any noticable battery drop in my daily use. I am up at 4:15am and disconnect the charger, go to the gym then work, then gym again. By the time i put the phone back on charge at about 8:30pm, i have about 18% battery left. That's fine by me.

Oh let me make the talkback issue worse for you.

If you go to your gallery the top bar won't hide either. Its a bug in TouchWiz and Samsung hasn't fixed it since the S3. Oh and I doubt you eye tracking works either.

I considered getting one, but wanted to find something with a larger bezel. The bezel and thickness of the pebble is just too little!

Oh, and supporting a company that's been screwing over it's backers for over a year isn't my cup of tea.

Yeh, I tried the eye tracking and it was crap. I'm not really that phased by it. The hand swipe is a bit of **** too. I'm a lot over touchwiz, so after reading around a bit, installed Nova last night. Much better Best idea so far. Now I can change the task launcher to how I want it to look, not what Samsung want it to look like.

Funny, I was tossing up for days over getting the S4 or HTC One. I thought I made the right choice...... oh well, you live and learn.

I am going to look into this!

I just picked up a Pebble since they now sell them at Best Buy. So far so good. Not really noticing any drain on battery or anything either...

Oh I have them long time ago...(Kick stand edition)
Trust me the watch is much better then shi_tty sony smartwatch.

Many things why I like pebble more. First belt of SmartWatch getting dusty with out reason. The color display is cool, but it have a bad responding. The battery is bad also. So I gave to the friend and bought pebble watch before it released.
The watch is very stable. Battery is superior good. The design is very lux. After 5 months I still love it.
And there is no battery drain or stuff like that.

Sure.

You need a root.
By root explorer (or similar app)
go to:

System>>>App>>>and delete talkback>>>restart device.

(You can always get this app from market play if you need it)

I'm not seeing talkback.apk, the only thing I see is talk.apk and I'm pretty sure that's not what I want to remove.
