Question for Note 4 owners: do the chamfered edges on the phone scratch easily?

Yes. But here is why for me. When I used this phone without a case there weren't any scratches. Then I purchased a few slim fit cases from ringke. These cases have hard interior edges and fit really snug. In switching them out periodically on and off again and again that's what did it. Use cases with a soft interior lining and you will be fine. My scratches are self inflicted and minimal, but they are there no doubt.

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.

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.

+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.

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.

Loving my white front, navy back, silver accent X, but just saw some new back plate colors were added. Would love to get the red!

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!

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

Dirty Bird offers rotisserie or fried chicken along with a number of basic sides. The food is flavorful, but pricey for the small portions you get. I enjoyed the food, but wish it provided a better value.

A good option for Japanese food in the Rego Park area. The food is delicious and you get huge portions - a very good value (try the bento boxes). Service is friendly and attentive.

Had an absolutely amazing meal here. The food was simply prepared but absolutely fresh and delicious. My favorite dish was the fried green tomatoes appetizer with fresh crab meat and a remoulade sauce. Our waiter was friendly and made great recommendations off the menu. He even brought a complimentary fresh fruit dessert for my wife because she has a cream allergy. Would definitely go back for another meal the next time I'm in town.

Absolutely fantastic restaurant for Louisiana seafood. The food is fresh and affordable, and the service is friendly and welcoming. Cannot go wrong with there seafood gumbo or any of their po'boys, dressed. I make it a point to go here everytime I'm in town.

I had heard about this place for some time and had a chance to go for brunch recently. It's a Thai, Filipino restaurant featuring a lot of pork dishes (of course, given its name). Ordered the sizzling sisig, and shan noodles with a side of garlic fried rice. The sisig, which seems to be a signature dish, is basically tiny cuts of bacon-like pieces on a sizzling hot plate with an egg cracked on top for you to mix in. Lots of flavor, but seemed like cheap cuts of pork and got really rich in the end since so fatty. Shan noodles were ramen like with a nice spicy broth. The garlic fried rice was awesome - if you like garlic. The restaurant is small, so expect to wait on a busy night, but service was friendly.

Recently went here for a Sunday family brunch and had a fine, but not great experience. The food was decent, but pricey and the service was barely existent. Our waitress never checked in with us and failed to have our appetizers come out before our main dishes. Did not find it to be worth the high prices and the moblike scene in the front as people check in or try to get tables without reservations.

A solid but slightly disappointing experience at Minetta. Service was friendly and the decor was very cool, but the food was not what I was expecting. The Pasta Zaza was very salty and the Black Label Burger was good, but not worth the hype or the nearly $30 they charge for it.
