Ah, glad you're back in business Jay!  Will you set it up with a lot of the same apps that you have on your 7??

You put any Nexus 4 specific apps on it?

Do you use a different camera app ?

Pretty much, there are other apps on the 4 that aren't on the 7 and I save space in the 4 by having larger games like Mass Effect and NFS on my 7.
The only have on my 4 is Pitfall.

I use Camera JB+ on my N7 but not N4, I like the N4 camera as it is. I want to experiment with Photosphere more and HDR is nice too.
The only specific N4 app I use is LightFlow, not that it's specific to the N4 but it is a useful N4 app.

What about you?

Pretty much generic apps.

Not sure about the camera app, much prefer the S3 one.

The N4 camera app is fairly intuitive, but want to read up on some of the non-obvious settings.

Can't find out much about using the different settings, especially in the Nexus 4 guide on GP!

The camera app settings? I thought they were all self explanatory and on all phones? The only setting I wasn't sure about was the HDR...

Looking at it again, HDR is probably the one I need to know more about.

My replacement is working okay although I've a couple of moments that has caused my heart to skip a beat...

Firstly after a few days I had left the eBay app open and turned the screen off, picked the N4 up to use and pressed the power button but the screen didn't come on and the LED flashed red....thankfully with the next press the screen did come on.

Couple weeks ago the N4 was getting low on battery and after the red flash of death as bassonemexie puts it I am reluctant to fully discharge the battery so put it on charge at about 11% and put the phone down, a few minutes later I picked it up to check on a notification and the phones read 100% charged??? I unplugged the OEM cable and rebooted to find the phone with approx 12% battery??? Weird...

Been fine for the last couple weeks...

Finally received my replacement this evening, arrived just before 17:50...

Later than expected but seeing as we're the last part of the route and we have snow, I'm not surprised...

Very happy now, just setting it up. :D

No, not at all. The payment was cancelled by Google after 7 days, before they had even received the original Nexus 4 back.

All good.

EDIT: Am sorry to hear your having problems though mate.
