In pain and simple terms, yes, Nexus users are Guinea Pigs...
We are at the bleeding edge of tech. We get the updates first and bugs get resolved with iteration updates.

As for your Bluetooth issue, Nexus phones will never be as good as OEM phones because Google won't pay for licencing for better Bluetooth stacks, if they did your Nexus would be far more expensive.
As for your email problems, personally I have no issues with my other three email accounts but my Hotmail account does. Because Hotmail account only works as an exchange account I can't send mail through it...
Try using the official Outlook mail app, it may work better for you.

Nexus 4 Help / Re: Battery dies
« on: February 08, 2014, 01:30:52 AM »
I had the red LED of death on my first Nexus 4 but Google replaced it...
I've read that it could be due to a faulty or loose connection between the battery and device, you could try taking the back off and having a look.

Nexus 4 Apps / Re: Music Players
« on: December 03, 2013, 02:54:38 AM »
Firstly let start by saying I exclusively use Google Play Music. With the limited storage of the Nexus 4, I didn't really want my music stored locally on my device so chose to have it on the cloud. Personally I have no issues with GPM.

No, your music is not available to anybody other than you. It's stored under your account and is therefore yours.
You don't have to store your music on "the cloud". As I said above, I choose to because of limited storage. Any music with an mp3 file extension stored locally (internal storage) is detected by the GPM application and displayed within the application. I did store a small amount of music locally and that music is in the music folder on my device.

If you want to use Winamp try this...


It's entirely up to you whether you think it's safe to use a 3rd party application. How many downloads does it have? What are the reviews like? How many stars does it have?
Decide from other users whether it's any good.

Other good player's include, PowerAmp, N7 Player and DoubleTwist but I'd recommend this for locally stored music...


Hope you find what you are looking for, good luck.

Have you granted it Notification access?

To check...

Settings> Security> Device Administration> Notification Access.

What problems? I know many people that use it and I've not heard of any problems. I used it on my Nexus 4 and I'm using it now on my Nexus 5??

I haven't tried but for USB thumb drives you change it from the PC. Right click the Nexus 4 name and if it allows it to be renamed then the option should be there...

You could use Lightflow and set up different colours for different notifications.
For example, I have the LED red solid when the battery falls to 15%, solid orange whilst charging until it reaches 100% when it goes solid green. When I get a G+ notification it flashes red fast and a Gmail it flashes red faster.
When I get an SMS it flashes green fast, an MMS green faster and a Hangouts green fastest.
Gold fast for email, White fast for Play store et cetera, et cetera.

Lightflow Lite (free) can set the LED for most system applications. - Link

Lightflow Paid can do a heap more. - Link

Also Lightflow can set notification sounds for all applications including individual sounds for people in your phonebook.

Nexus 4 Help / Re: my nexus send automatic sms, how to stop that!!
« on: November 15, 2013, 12:31:10 AM »
The only way I could think of that this would happen is Malware. I've not experienced it myself in nearly four years of Android nor has anybody I know but it does exist.

Have in installed any applications from outside the Play store? What in the community is often referred to as sideloading?

KitKat anyone...

Unfortunately this is a known issue with Android and especially Nexus devices. This is because Google won't pay licencing for propitiatory software such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi stacks and there's isn't a simple fix.

Nexus 4 General Discussion / Re: Nexus 4 unusable after upgrade
« on: September 22, 2013, 01:59:43 AM »
I'm going to say your battery problems are probably application based. When you upgrade Android quite often Applications become unstable on the new version of Android and this can cause differing problems for people.
The other thing is dirty data or corrupt data, this c can also happen during an update and cause issues.
This may not be what you want to do but I would highly recommend a factory data reset. Starting from scratch will remove any applications that aren't compatible with Android 4.3, it will also clear any dirty or corrupt data left on your device from the update.

A factory data reset, although troublesome should be your first step when any Android device"plays" up because usually the problem can be resolved.

Personally I've been impressed with 4.3 and what it's brought to my devices.

Yes that's right. The AC adapter deals with the volt of the AC outlet and converts that to the voltage needed for our devices.
I suggest you find a local electrical store and buy an AC adapter, it doesn't matter whether it's mage by LG, Motorola, Apple or one of the Chinese or Korean OEM's, so long as it provides at least 1 Amp, had has a USB output and plugs into AC outlets in China.

Nexus 4 Android OS / Re: 4.3 OTA Looks Good
« on: September 16, 2013, 12:15:56 AM »
Ma bad, it appears you can't OTA update if rooted. You'd need to unroot and remove the custom recovery.
Easily done though through the SuperSU application which can remove the su binary and then flash the stock recovery image through fastboot or a Nexus toolkit.
Personally I feel it was worth updating, there are slight colour calibration tweaks and there small battery improvements too. Then there hidden gems like the Notification listener and App ops which can only be accessed via an activities shortcut but I'd expect App ops to be fully working and integrated with Android 4.4. And there's another reason, if you don't update now you'll have to do it if you want 4.4 KitKat because OTA's are incremental.

I would just find a US adapter locally and use this and the included USB cable for charging, so long as the adapter has an output of at least 1 Amp. It can be more though because the phone will only draw what it needs...
