Bought a 16GB version a couple weeks ago to replace my Galaxy Nexus. I've been too lazy to go to Walmart to get the $30 100min plan from T-Mo. haha

Running stock at the moment. Haven't really felt the need to root my phone yet.

That's good to hear smile.gif I imagine it would be quite an improvement coming from a Nexus S tongue.gif

i fiddled with roms for a day, and was desperate to come back to stock

roms have interesting options, but too much is too much, most things are useless, too many options for everything, it was annoying

BTW warning, flashing roms, then coming back to stock is a nightmare, it was for me, actually i had to flash stock 422 rom, but when 4.3 comes out, i won´t be able to update because of having a rom, you need to restore stock by other methods, but is a PITA

I think I just flashed the stock rom too. Is that going to mean that 4.3 will need to be flashed as well? I guess it won't bother me much if it does, at least you don't have to flash a new rom every week like you do with the custom roms thumb.gif

Really late to the party, but just replaced my T-Mobile S2 with a 16GB Nexus stock. Definitely takes a bit more customization out of the box, but I knew what I was getting into with a "pure" Android phone.

Quick problem though: I have a weird bug where the screen sleep timer will reset itself a few minutes after I change it. I'd set it to 1 or 2 minutes, for example, but a while later it'd revert back to 15 seconds. Been looking through my apps to see what could cause it but no luck yet. Relevant apps installed are Nova Launcher, Widget Lockscreen, and Light Flow. Literally the only problem in an otherwise happy experience so far

I can't say I've experienced that issue before, so I can't help there, of course someone else might know though thumb.gif

Well regardless of what rom you use, the updates are usually from added new features and bug fixes with those so granted if you dont like updating or customizing then stick to stock. Also when a new os update comes out it wont take long for rom updates to come as well esp if google releases aosp in time.

Fixed my display sleep problem! Posting the solution here because after googling it feels no one else in the world has. Jerks frown.gif

Anyways, the culprit app was Light Flow (which I still heavily recommend). It turns out using "Switch Screen On" for a notification will cause the display sleep timer to reset. I emailed the app dev who told me about this, and he explained that 4.2.x has issues with implementing a method to turn the screen on for short periods of time.

My phone now works perfectly and am 100% happy with it! Can't wait for my titanium back skin to come in.

Now I love my N4. I came from a Nexus S and have always enjoyed the nexus brand but that since that HTC One got announced with a google version I may switch over to that. It is very tempting.
