As an aside, I hope Cyanogenmod adds the Note 3 to their officially supported list soon. I'm so sick of Samsung software.
Swivel cam? I think you're looking at the Oppo N1.

You are correct. Don't know why I confused the two.

Re: The one and only ANDROID thread....

Picked up the HTC One M8. Love it; I missed the look and feel of HTC's phones for those measly 3 months I had the LG G2.

I am thinking of getting the HTC One M8 also. Which carrier did you go with? I went to a T Mobile store yesterday and they haven't received it yet.

I did T-Mobile; I was eligible for a Jump upgrade. Weird your store hasn't received it yet. I got mine on Friday.

If it's the same camera software as the Note 3, press the settings cog icon in the upper right. An options menu will come up. Go to the third tab, again the cog icon, and scroll all the way down to the bottom for shutter sound.

Re: The one and only ANDROID thread....

Hey I've got an iphone 5s atm and I want to switch to android.
I'm thinking about buying the nexus 5 or the S5...as a former ios-user (meaning I like it simple^^) which one would you recommend? I'm not into rooting or stuff like that, I just want it to work right away...

next thing is: how is the compatibility between MacOS and Android phones?

Re: The one and only ANDROID thread....

Can anyone tell me if the Samsung charging pad will work with other phones like the nexus 5? I assume it will as Qi is Qi but this one from fleabay does not work so well. Likely just a quality thing, but want to confirm before shelling out more monies.

Qi is Qi, but you need to make sure that the phone and the charging pad are lined up correctly. Could it be that the phone was not placed correctly, and that's why it was not charging?

Moto g is an excellent choice if you don't need 4GLTE

Some fleebay ones don't work well, but any quality qi charger should work. I am using both an lg and Nokia wireless pad on my note 3. I prefer nokia because it is bigger, and easier to place for me.

I bought a cheap one (choetech) and it didn't charge as fast and got much hotter.

$100 - $200, a Moto G would suffice most likely, got any links on getting it to work Post?
