Rooting will make it faster. You can overclock, delete bloat ware, choose what apps go autorun, and do many more things to make your phone run faster. Its fun.

Went ahead and installed the latest Paranoid Android ROM:
[/quote]
How do you get all your apps back? I'm used to the Elegancia Sense 4 Rom and it uses Aroma installer. It's super easy. When I installed Paranoid's 1.5 I didn't even have the app store. I couldn't load Titanium because it said it was already on my phone, even though I couldn't see it or get to it from any of the interfaces.


Here is my Elegancia Rom


This is with the favorites open.


This is the pulldown notification bar, you hit it and it loads the quick task menu.

That way you have a perfectly sized image, THEN select the area for the screen and Delete it
put your Screenshot as the bottom layer (also a smart object)
That way you can just "replace content"
Or that might only work in PS What I ended up with from a 2048x3072 image! (Click to show)
This way you only have Two layers One for the device and one for the screen. nothing to mix up or misplace...lol

Does this look better?

I flashed the ROM the day after I got the phone, and because I had only a few apps installed I just redownloaded them from the Play store. As for the missing Play store, I know many ROMs including Paranoid have separate .zip packages for the ROM and stock Google apps, so it sounds like you forgot to flash the gapps.zip after you installed it.

The use of the task killer is quite interesting, can you explain why you have it?

The ideology behind a task killer is simple: To eliminate background tasks to preserve battery.

The problem? You are now constantly running a background task that never clears and consistently uses up more of your battery than just letting your phone idle, because it has to constantly search for services becoming active. I'd advise you ditch the task killer. Trust me, it makes a huge difference.

If you want toget even better battery life, root the phone(if it isn't already, it's really easy on the Nexus) and make a profile in Set-CPU(free on XDA developers) that will force your phone's processor to automatically lower the processor's clock rate to the minimum it supports while the screen is off to prevent wake locks and preserve even more battery life.
