Recently made the switch to a Nexus 5 and found a couple dead pixels on the screen.  Called Google's customer service and after running through a couple tests, they agreed to send me a new replacement phone.  Very pleased with their level of service.

My buddy had the same problem, and had the same experience! I'm glad they made things right!

+Bryce Kerry  well it is and isnt right now. Not all apps work for ART and will force close (whatsapp, capital one, and others). For me I have not run into any issues and I have noticed a difference when scrolling in apps. Hangouts doesnt lag at all when scrolling fast through conversations, same with instagram and g+. However each app will take up a little more space after switching to ART since they are compiled before hand now. For me, everything took up the same amount space when I was running davlik on 4.2.2 so i didnt mind at all. But if you keep davlik on 4.4 you will notice about 400 mb extra space.

With the transparent notification and navigation bars in the Kit Kat update, the screen looks bigger now

I am loving Active Notifications.  So nice to hear your alert, tap the screen to check what it is and continue what you're doing.

Hi all,

Has anyone used a Verizon Moto X overseas yet, particularly France? I'm going to Paris next week and would like to know if its easy to get a local sim working. Would like some basic data to use Google maps while traveling. Thx!

I haven't, but there has been a few threads here regarding that, and the Moto X does fine with a foreign sim. It has to be unlocked of course.

Finally got my kitkat OTA download and switched GPS to battery saving mode which makes a huge difference. Battery has been on 100% for 22 hours. Granted, mostly idle time, but much more than what I was getting before.

since upgrading to kitkat I noticed my wireless charger actually charges my n7 rather than just slowing the battery drain!

Battery Life  - 
 
For Verizon users who received the update, do you feel like the battery is better calibrated now? My battery doesn't seem to be draining as fast as before

So I might not have a battery life issue, but a calibration issue. My battery has been on 1% remaining for the last 3 hours...

For those getting great battery life, do you have Google Now activated? Not sure if my battery life is bad, or just hard to adjust post-Galaxy Note 2

Yes mine is on.  IMO it doesn't affect battery one bit.

Moto X - probably the closest you'll get to a Nexus phone experience on Verizon?

Absolutely wonderful experience at this restaurant. The food was delicious and the staff attentive, friendly and helpful. As tourists with minimal knowledge of French, the wait staff took their time going through the menu options with us, translating the dishes and explaining the ingredients and preparation. The menu changes daily subject to market ingredients and I've read the restaurant has no freezer, ensuring the quality of the food. Takes reservations, but were able to get a table for an early 7pm seating by walking in.

Have been here for lunch a few times and have had great experiences. Friendly service and delicious options at reasonable prices. Highly recommend their pizzettes and any of their lamb related dishes.

A solid restaurant with a creative take on Chinese classics. The flavors are very much for an Americanized palate - so good tasting, but not necessarily the flavors you'd get in the heart of Chinatown. Service is friendly and the setting is intimate. Other than a couple booths and some seats for 2, they have two large tables for communal seating. My personal favorites were the Pac Man Dumplings and the Katz's Pastrami egg roll.

Excellent steakhouse. Steaks were tender, well-seasoned and cooked perfectly to order. There's nothing more exciting when you're hungry to hear the sizzling steak delivered to you on a hot plate. Great variety of sides and desserts. Highly recommend the warm apple tart. Great service, and usual steakhouse decor.

Moist cupcakes with delicious frosting/icing. They rotate through their flavors day-to-day and feature different ones for the changing seasons or holidays. My personal fave is peanut butter fudge. Limited seating, but great location right in the heart of SoHo.

A great Thai option in the Heights. The food is flavorful and really affordable - they have a good lunch special offering an appetizer and entree. Outdoor seating is nice in warm weather. Food usually comes out quick and service is friendly.
