I've ordered my Spigen clear case directly from their website.
Inclusive of normal shipping freight, it comes up to about NZ$38+. Shipping takes about 10 days.
Fit is very good. A bit slippery but it does look nice as you can still see the metal casing.

Can someone recommend me an app?

My storage says 11GB is taken up with "other" the annoying thing about this phone is you can't click on it to highlight what exactly "other" means.

What's the best app to use to find what's taking up all my space?

Only a few more hours and hopefully we will know if the Google Edition rom can be flashed onto existing handsets :D

Anyone else planning the Sense --> GE update?

Pure google OS must make the One one of the most desirable android handsets on the market at present

From memory (no pun intended) when you first receive the phone and boot it up you only get 24 of the 32GB made available to you. The rest is for the OS. Is it possible you have got stuff cached or in temporary files? My phone currently has 8.21GB in 'other', but I only rebooted it this morning. I'd be interested to see if a reboot reduces your 'other' storage.

Edit: You will probably need root access to be able to delve into the 'other'.

I have root access but don't have ability to go into it.

One thing I miss about Samsung is the ability to go one step further.

I won't be going near the GE firmware. It simply doesn't compare to the current version of Sense features and looks. It lacks simple things like a reboot option from the power menu. The 4.2 quick settings buttons mostly don't work as toggles, but take you to the setting for that function. As a former nexus owner I won't be going back to stock Android till Google add in a lot of the features/modifications  present in Sense/Touchwiz or even CM.

Interesting... Sense is an absolute abortion IMHO, maybe its because it all seems so foreign as I am better versed with touchwiz. Either way GE all the way, any shortcomings will quickly be put right with custom roms

Why not just use CyanogenMod? It doesn't get much more polished than that.

I'm using ViperOne, it's by far the best modified stock ROM I've come across. It's got levels of customisation that eclipses even CM.

The main problem with CM for a lot of people is lack of access to camera firmware/drivers. 
The GE phones *should* have access to the manufacturers proprietary drivers and firmware, which means pics will be better!

And apart from the initial effort of changing rom it is all easy and timely updates from that point forward, cm is an ongoing battle

Skinned android will be a thing of the past in the foreseeable future, the success of the S4/One/Experia nexus experience will redesign the Android os model as we know it

4.2 OTA rolling out for Chinese model One. I'd guess international isn't far behind.

Im on TrickDroid atm , and have been absolutely satisfied with it since i flashed it.

But from reading the Viper forums, Im seeing alot of bug reports and issues and etc. looks like Viper is not too stable at this moment. What are your experiences so far? and hows the battery ?

It's easily as stable as the stock 4.2 I was using. There were some expected bugs with some of the really advanced tweaking. Most have already been fixed via OTA.

Battery is as good as ever.
