Russel, 28 May 2013Hello everyone. I had a strange problem develop with my 4x. I would normally use 15-20% of bat... morewas it paid apps or apps with adds?
apps with adds should simply be avoided because the adds drain battery as they constantly loads new adds.
also free adds often are bad apps specialy if they do not have a paid version.
if your rooted you could look for an app that blocks acces to some features in your phone like the internet if they dont need it.
i use a cheapass tablet to test apps if they cause issues like battery drain or preventing deep sleep.
if they run without issue on the tablet only then i install them on my phone :)
Hello everyone. I had a strange problem develop with my 4x. I would normally use 15-20% of battery through the day with the way I have it set up and my normal use. Overnight battery lose would be 2-3%. Then overnight lost became 20-25% with phone on standby. I usually check that all apps are closed,ect before bed. I checked everything I could think of but the problem continued. Through the day it was normal. What was different? All I could think of was I had downloaded several simple game apps. I uninstalled them and problem was solved. Battery lost is now back to 1-3% over night.
Are the auto-focus and screen brightness setting problems resolved with the update?
What is going on here. It use to be a good forum. Now it's just stupid questions and people moaning about fly sh*t! For the price this phone is great. For more cash u can probably get a better phone but every phone has its faults some bigger than others. This used to be a place to fix our thanks to good people like pino

BelAddams, 23 May 2013Yup, I've seem reviews stating that the overheating has increased even more... I was thinking ... morethe overheating is a cmplete myth haha.
the phone is heating not overheating and even the heating isnt so bad it just feels warm theres nothing wrong with that.

Might try it out and check
Thanks a lot for all the help, Pino!
Anonymous, 19 May 2013could you please describe step by stepSad news friends it turns out the "cold boot" gps lock can be sporatic still...after it locks on it can take 5-15 seconds to get another lock, but I'll keep editing the gps file see if I can get a good file for the 4x'ers. Someone asked step by step to edit gps.conf...Look it up there are a few tricky steps and you need root access.

I updated mine and it's worth it! Everything looks bit better and if I could downgrade it, I wouldn't do it. List of changes you can find here on forum...
After upgrade I suggest you to do a factory reset. That way phone will work nice and smooth. :)
mista GPS, 18 May 2013To all my 4X HD friends that have GPS issues. You need to edit the gps.conf file and set the ... moreHow did you do this?
I think the GPS might be causing my time zone to change to Taipei everytime the phone is turned on, either in automatic or manual time zone. (if it's not the GPS, does anyone know how to fix this? It's messing with a important reminder, turning it off)
There're also several apps tagged as system, how do I remove them?
BelAddams, 22 May 2013If I update the OS, can I easily return to the previous one if I don't like it (I don't mind e... moretheres no easy way as its not supported.
and frankly i dont think updating is any good or better at all.
just use v10h and youl be fine theres not much point in updating as theres not much interesting added.
in my opinion update to 4.1 if you want custom roms otherwise theres no reason to.
If I update the OS, can I easily return to the previous one if I don't like it (I don't mind erasing my data and doing a factory reset)? Or I'll be stuck (I know there's downgrading, but seemed complicated, wanted something easy and quick)?
Is it worth to update? Is there some place with the list of changes?
Thanks a lot
BelAddams, 22 May 2013Thaaaaanks so much!
I was being fooled by some of the contacts having a little sim icon next ... moreit bugged me at first also.
after a while i realised some numbers where from whatsapp some where on the phone and some where on the sim.
i ended up syncing everything to sim and phone and then set it to phone display only and everything worked.
