Gotta say tho the phone is kinda big to use it with one hand, especially when using it with Spigen Neo Hybrid case...
You'll probably get used to it. IMO 5" in the perfect size. Any larger is too much.

And that is what she said.

So I just got this from Amazon for 20$, came from China. I'm loving the wireless charging. It's pretty tiny and light stays green until you put the phone on then it'll turn blue, not bright though. The phone covers the entire thing, it beeps once you set it down with a good placement, nothing when you pull it off.

Took some time to setup the Nexus today. Unlocked the bootloader, flashed some custom recovery and rooted it ... then I got bored and flashed to Faux 123 kernel as well biggrin.gif

So now all I know I should do is install Lux for some brightness control... anything else I'm missing tongue.gif?

Which Recovery did you flash?

Any particular reason you picked Faux 123 kernel over Franco's?

I flashed TWRP recovery... gotta say I like the fancy looking interface tongue.gif

I chose Faux because I've used it before and I thought I had already bought the tweaking app as well... turns out I was wrong so i have time to reconsider which kernel I'm going to use biggrin.gif

I'm getting ready to root sometime later today. I'm wondering if I should take the phone out for a GPS test drive first to see how it behaves before and after.

Do you know if GPS is dictated by the kernel, or by the ROM?
