Max events increased to 320
Brightness set to auto (hint: the proximity sensor can detect changes in light level if your screen protector isn't covering it)
And I combined all that with an automatic task killer that murders background processes.
I'd rather stay happy, rooted, and not broke thanks to yet another metro tease. BTW flash works very well with the right kernel and a little patience
How did you change brightness to auto? And by flash works very well do you mean you have flash video function as well? Mine works but the screen it all green artifacts...

When this bad boy gets rooted, rom'd, and oc'd it will be a f*ckn BEAST! Don't get me wrong I've enjoyed my Optimus and it was my first smartphone but, I've had it almost a year now and I think we've pushed it as far as it will go. It has served me well but, this is definitely an upgrade worth making, at least for me. I'm just waiting for the MIR to go into effect.
Just my $.02.
I guess it a decent phone, the LTE part turns me off. First off Metro calling the speeds they restrict their LTE network to is hardly "4g", plus the LTE network in Michigan only works in one area that I try at all costs to avoid.
Besides that if I'm gonna pay that much a month and that much for a phone I would just go back to Sprint. The price for Metro's really, really limited 4g network is way
too close to the price of Sprint's real
unlimited data plan to make it justifiable. Plus I can buy a used Sprint phone with the same specs for less than half the price craigslist.
The ONLY reason I can see for people to use Metro is cuz it's cheap (it's the only reason I'm on it) and the 4g plan just isn't far enough from the competition (who has way better shit).
