Did you get to the page that's in my screenshot a few posts back? See how I have the nav bar set to 0%

Edit: yeah I didn't think it was related to buying their app.

My local T-Mobile store has them in stock now. I'm tempted to buy one so I don't have to keep waiting for Google to have them in stock, but I bet that as soon as I do that they'll be available immediately online.

I went to the store and looked at it, and I am in love. White actually looks white, which is a big deal to me. So far, the iPhone 5 is the only phone I've looked at that has a screen that can display a white that looks right.

My 4S looks too blue, AMOLED looks blue, and all of the other phones with IPS screens look yellow.

They charge a $50 restocking fee. Also, the salesman told me it would be locked to T-Mobile. I'm just going to wait for Google to have them in stock again.

Now that I've seen it I'll have an even harder time waiting.

I'm thinking he may be incorrect regarding the handset being locked. To my knowledge, no GSM nexus devices have ever been locked to a single carrier.

I called Google Play support and was told that they should be available for purchase by the end of the month, and it will be immediately available for shipping at the time of order.

Does the stock email app have pinch to zoom now? I know that Gmail was updated, but can't find any info about the stock email app.

I use K9, regarded by many as the best email client. And while it technicially has pinch to zoom, you can't zoom out all the way on any email with a picture in it. It is the most annoying thing about my phone.

My bad.

LG's Optimus G Pro revealed in leaked image with 5-inch 1080p display, 3,000mAh battery and LTE

http://www.engadget.com/2013/01/18/l...pro-spec-leak/

I wonder if this means the rumors of a Nexus 5 or whatever they call it are true.

The Nexus 4 is indeed a truly great phone. I'm hoping that the significant successes of current top tier Android phones like the Note 2, Galaxy S 3 & Nexus 4 will inspire Apple to eventually build a similar phone.

At the current slow pace Apple seems to prefer, the next phone will be called 5S with only modest improvements and the same narrow screen I'm currently living with on my iPhone 5.

I gave up on PA after 2 days because of terrible battery life compared to CM and AOKP so I went back to CM. Apparently there's a build of AOKP that has their version of a hiding nav bar but theres you slide down or up for the nav bar.

To anyone rooted: you have to install these 2 apps! They give you the pie bar which you can have show up on the left, right or bottom of the screen and the other app hides the Nav bar. Only root needed and its as easy as installing 2 apps.

Who keeps pressing things with their palms when using it one handed?

I do.

I find the S3 easier to use one handed because it's so flat, even though it's slightly bigger.

The Nexus 4 is too thick. :T

There are things I'm really beginning to dislike about the N4. Especially with 4.2 being so buggy. The camera still sucks, and and the camera software is slow.

Might look to the S4.

The Nexus line, lately, has lost its luster. I think this is a combination of TouchWiz's rise, and Google messing up and putting out buggy software.

This I would have never seen coming.
