    Yeah I read the back of the box and noticed that it was partially silicone, which I don't like, so I didn't get it.

    not sure if it makes a differnce, but it may be a bit brighter when on a charger than not, could be some of the difference

    Hmm, interesting thought. My laptop tends to get a bit dimmer when plugged in. Maybe the reverse is true on the Gnex?

    Thanks for the idea. I will try it when I get home and take a look.

    I didn't really care about the screen grayness too much, but when I compared it, I did get a bit pissed.

    Do you guys find your white web backgrounds a bit on the gray side?

    Really? I kinda like it - forces me to play with the new app then delete it or put it where it belongs (folder/screen).

    Got my Case Mate Barely There case today...absolutely perfect for me. Very slim profile with hardly any noticeable bulk to the phone. It's actually thinner than the one on my Thunderbolt. I wish they had the black chrome color that they have for my Thunderbolt but black is just fine.

    Any news on the Keep Awake function that seems to be a likely source for high battery drain? There were a couple of people looking at this on a couple of threads so its hard to know where to track updates. Keep Awake might be worth a dedicated thread, no?

    I hope this is a dumb question with an easy answer.

    Is there a way to hide the buttons and use the full screen for movies and browsing? I thought when I watched the demonstration video they displayed movies on the full screen.

    I ripped a DVD (no, it's not porno BB) to the full screen size, but the buttons are still there.

    The best thing about them is that they are so cheap you can find out for yourself. I have 2, one of them was 5 bucks, the other was 3 bucks. One has a rugged feel on the sides so its grippy, the other is just a slick non-textured one.

    The TPU cases on amazonwireless are really nice. I've got a matte black one and it comes with a glossy black lip around it that matches the screen almost perfectly. So it looks like one solid piece up front. I was really impressed with it. And it fits real well.

    I also am LOVING my OTG cable.. I tried my canon DSLR and it works perfectly. It imports full size picture in like 2 seconds. Very impressed. I also tried an Xbox 360 controller and it appears to work but doesn't supply enough power to the USB wireless part to sync with the controller. I'm ordering a Y cable for extra juice anyways :)

    It shouldn't boot loop.. did you use super boot? Or did you manually push the recovery then flashed su.zip?
