This is, by far, and I mean light years away, the worst battery life ever. It goes from 100% to 90% in a few mins and it takes an eternity to recharge. I even had to reset it the very next day to see if it was something I have downloaded, and it continued draining fast. Not a good phone for heavy usage.

NEDLED, 27 Jan 2016How about an app to bright it up? This notification led is one of the dimmest I have ever used.You can try Light Manager linked below. However, my brief time with it didn't yield any differences in the brightness of the LED notification, nor did it manually change any of the default colors beyond what the phone is ordinarily capable of.

Anonymous, 26 Jan 2016Do you have the stock recovery image to this device and know how to unroot? Nobody has a stock recovery at the moment. This is MUST for unrooting.

I thought this was quite interesting...
In Settings > Storage we have the feature "Preferred install location" for new apps with the options of "Default write disk" being either "Phone storage" or "SD card". This is a nice feature to have on Android for which most flagship devices restrict SD card app installation, if they even have a MicroSD card slot to begin with.
I discovered that if you choose your SD card for your "Default write disk", when you try to transfer anything from either your PC or your phone's storage, it will fail. It's trying to protect it as a Read Only storage location. In order for you to successfully transfer things over, just change the "Default write disk" to "Phone storage" and you'll be able to drag and drop items like normally from your PC to the SD card.

Also anything you plug into the 3.5mm jack will also improve with Viper4Android. I use it in my car all the time and it's beyond words as it really can't be explained. It must be EXPERIENCED!
MacFaq, 21 Jan 2016Thank you for the clarification and your thoughts on rooting and OS updates. I also wanted ... moreViper4Android actually replaces and enhances stock audio files, frequencies and options that are so far outside of the manufacturer's purview that it enables the phone to do things that ordinary apps cannot. This particular rooted app not only enhances the music, but it affects all of the audio sounds on the phone making it louder and more professional sounding. So to directly answer your question, yes, it does make the speaker sound louder and clearer as well as the sounds on bluetooth, which is what I primarily use most of the time. I'm always amazed at how this fantastic program can make some cheap $20 bluetooth stereo headphones sound like expensive, top of the line Siennheisers!

im trying to root my phone via your tutorial. Im having trouble with unlocking my bootloader. when download the fastboot from mediashare it just downloads an app no folder as you speak of. so I went and downloaded a different version of minimal adb and fastboot. Now I have a folder on my desktop, so I download the zip file extract it and and put the extracted file into the fastboot folder. also the supoersu folder is on my phone via usb. I then turn the phone off and when I hold the volume up button and power button my phone comes back on saying "no command" so I put the command you told us to use in the command window put to the side but it just says waiting for device once enter is pressed. can you help to determine what I am doing wrong, and where this problem could be resolved? developer mode has been unlocked and I did enable both settings mentioned in op.

I also wanted to ask you if you can hear some real difference in the sound quality after installing Viper4Android? Is the difference noticeable when listening through the speaker, or through the earphones (or both)? Does it make any difference when streaming music to a Bluetooth speaker?
