    I understood. What I was asking if posting a reply without a quote, where are you pressing? On my Droid 4 I used the menu button.

    To my surprise, I got mine yesterday a day early. Switched to T-Mobile as well to get unlimited everything. At the end of the day, about the same price as Verizon per month over the long haul.

    Anyway yeah, it's kind of weird that they turned the context menu into a long press and made 'recent apps' the default behavior. I'm used to the latter being a home button long press so this is kind of weird.

    Changing menu displays from all those circles to list mode helps... it's such a chore to scroll through otherwise.

    Here's hoping for custom ROMS soon!

    So far I'm pretty impressed with this phone. A few things that I read, I simply cannot agree with. I've read the finger print scanner is a gimmick and is quirky. It works for me every time without a hitch and I love it. Maybe some people burned their finger prints off smoking a little too much dope and not knowing when to stop.

    It took 2 minutes to setup the finger print scanner. I used my pointer finger but find myself scanning with my thumb. NO PROBLEM... You can setup more that 1 finger.

    Anyway... I went to a hockey game last night with my son. Here 's a picture of a very low light shot taken behind some pretty beet up glass. Notice how clear the lettering is on the opposite side (this was a 4meg file down to 400k so some quality obviously lost). That's some very low lighting and I'm pretty impressed.

    I took over a hundred pictures + a handful of videos, used google maps to get to where I was going (didn't need it, just wanted to see how well it functioned (very good)), surfed the web for a while, posted to facebook, etc... and the battery life still 1/2.

    I'm not much of a ROM person but I do root my phone to take advantage of some apps (root call blocker, the app that allows you to turn the shutter sound on your camera off, get rid of the bloatware, and of course the most important item, tethering with my unlimited data plan! etc...)

    I'm coming from an S3. The camera quality was ok. This camera is MUCH snappier (no pun intended) and I'm really impressed with it so far. The video does offer slow motion but I have to bow my head to the iPhone on this one... The iPhone is just better. This one seems to have a little lag / jerkiness kind of feel to it when watching. Maybe if enough people complain, they will come out with a software fix for it. To me, it's not that important.

    One more thing about the camera. There's no way in hell anyone here is going to tell me the paltry camera on the M8 is going to take higher quality pictures than this phone. No gonna happen.

    Any questions, feel free to ask.
