DFSW: Got my One swapped out today because of the faulty usb port and I swear the old one had white backlights on the home and back button and thi new one has blue can someone confirm this please, i'll throw pic up later


I would tell you but the backlights on mine work very intermittently, common fault for the earlier produced ones. Thought the 4.2 update might fix it but it doesn't.

IIRC correctly the light was quite a bright blue.



Mine are white.

Tried restarting phone and only using a few basic apps today. Still at 44%battery after a whole day off charge, massive improvement! The secret?

Only one hour 20 screen time today... FML

I keep a close eye - can't see anything weird going on. Generally my reddit app is top followed by htcsense, messaging, instagram, gmail, whatsapp, android core

It's definitely screen use that kills the battery.

If have have enabled installing apps from non-market sources then it's likely a problem with the app. Unlikely to be fixable.

Well I've been complaining about the inconsistency of the capacitive button backlights. It turns out they only light up in low light situations.

I'm using the leaked 2.19 kernel which has fixed the sensitivity of the buttons as well.

Also the very amazing Viper ROM has been released, it is the most awesome non CM ROM I've ever used.

Worth checking out for all rooted users. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2334294

I never used the Bluetooth to stream music but had issues being able to get turn by turn navigation instructions to play when hooked up to bluetooth car kit.

Correction to the above , the music does stop , so the radio recognises the incoming call , but it rings on the handset.
Tried turning wifi off as reported elsewhere but no change.

Hey guys, anyone got one of those Spigen Glas.tr covers for their phone?

I was cleaning my phone yesterday and noticed I had maybe half a dozen or so minor scratches on the screen, and Im looking for a way to protect it. I hate the feeling of screen protectors, taken off two unbranded ones already.

Essentially Im after a way to cover the screen and still have the glass feel. Price isnt really an issue, but something I could get delivered here for ~$50 would be right on the mark
