1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Is there a way to zoom in on a subject when taking a picture? What have I missed?

    Yes... by using pinch to zoom just like you would on some browsers. Took me some time to figure it out too.

    You can also use the volume keys to zoom in and out (doing so will also bring up an on-screen slider for the zoom that you can use if you want to). I think it's much easier than pinching to zoom because it allows you to keep the phone a bit more steady as well as keeping a finger at the shutter.

    Damn, all along I've been using the little slider on the screen. Volume buttons work for my MAXX too! Thanks, B!
