good one! i can't disagree with most of the points mentioned.

the camera is still shit; an improvement over my old gnex though not an obvious one to me anyway. after all that hype!

it would be awesome if CM, AOKP or Paranoid, or one of those teams, fixed all the problems listed in the above article and released a tasty kitkat that's a lot like stock, but improved.

at least for now i can finally agree with diarx about stock android being a nice user experience (mostly), although i do miss a lot of the additional functionality baked into custom roms.

cool stories.

sigh, stop being stupid, i was just talking about the IGZO that you mentioned coming to a Sharp phone, and possibly apple, stating its likely we'll get more displays with it than just sharp and apple.

far out. its not THAT hard to get.

Weird, expected delivery bumped to tomorrow now

Anyone with an N5 had the new caller ID system work for them yet?

Think above all that is the killer feature - even if it's just for businesses that have phone number data on GMaps, it's still going to be hell useful.

Ordered a Nexus 5, though the website says it will be dispatched in 4-6 weeks . I've been very happy with the Diztronic case on my Nexus 4 so I'm going to order one for the 5. I'll report back how it is.

SwiftKey is a little buggy for me sometimes. Like on these forums, if it's near the edge of the text window, it won't insert a space and I have to manually do it after it connects words together. Other times it simply won't write on an app I've had open for a while and I have to restart the app I'm using. The predictions go all funky when deleting and editing stuff mid sentence too.
Also capitalising random autocompletes is irritating to no end.

^ mostly user error. look in the settings - you can change the behaviour of all that shit.

sometimes it takes a little bit to appear on apps that have been open for a while. It's only done that to me on the last few cm nightlies though so i smell something funny about the rom doing it. It was always fine before that. Still, it's such a good keyboard it's a minor annoyance when that happens. Not a reason to stop using it

You really think if that stuff could be fixed I wouldn't have already tried or figured it out? It works fine on mainstream stuff like Facebook or Twitter. The predictions thing is stupid, I tell it not to predict stuff again and it still does it straight away.

THIS! Mine has only started doing it recently but it's really annoying. Middle of sentence it decides to throw in a word with a capital.

It predicts sentences rather than words like normal keyboards. This makes it much faster to write things as most of what you say follows a standard structure.
