If you can't find one in Auckland I have a lightweight one somewhere I could loan you. Suggest you ask the locals first, cheaper/easier.

Yes of course. You would only get it once.

Ok

But it feels kind of unfair coz I paid no different price than someone who has it as their first galaxy handset and they got the 50GB bonus data.

Plus the 50GB I got from S3 will expire next year and if this 50GB got activated now then this would have expired 2015 so enough to keep going for a long time

Damager: Just wondering what custom recovery is everyone using ?


been using Philz Touch for a while but need to adjust sensitivity as my clumsy fingers tend to set of things they aren't supposed to when in recovery.

I think both HTC ONE and S4 are awesome.
It depends if you want a bigger screen, or better design & sound.
The performance is almost identical, that shouldn't hold you back from not getting one of them.
The camera is different on both.
If you record in nighttime & indoors, HTC one is better than S4, but if you record in daylight - S4 slightly is better.
The megapixels don't matter that much.

Some days "Google Services" takes up more battery than the screen, has anyone looked into this? I did a quick google and I've changed a couple of things. I keep WiFi/GPS/Mobile data off unless I need it.
