How are you going to mount the battery inside that glass shield? Got a picture?



Thanks for confirming. Also, I distinctly remember the phone skipped step no. 2 / 5 in the initial setup. Updating the phone as I post.

you don't need to back up, there is no loss of data, or so the prompt said.
i am updating now, will be done in like 3 hours.

Will update when update completes

Speaking of Indiatimes, following a satisfactory experience for my XZL, I've placed an order for the Iphone 5 this past weekend.

I think we should still expect Android 4.3 sometime soon. It has been seen on the developers site and on many websites' logs..
It will Come but as it is another MR over JB probably they did not consider it worth mentioning in keynote , Its Google I/O not Android IO afterall.

All automatic. Takes about 45 minutes to complete the update.

Yes sir. Xperia Z at 33k with 6 months 0% EMI with freebies is a REAL deal. Totally they took 6 business days. Not bad, its still within their 7 days promise.

I got a Gadmei 5200 mah last week from shop clues for 900 bucks and it charges my Atrix 2 (1650 mah) twice + a little more. The charge is very quick though.

I have noticed there is a lot of losses in these power banks though. Is this normal ? I had a Nokia 2100 mah one which which would only charge my phone till 70% !

It is not big at all. Think of it as 20% longer than a blackberry, 50% wider and about 50% more thickness than a blackberry. The looks are quite decent and belie the price

Mine charges 100% for both these babies.

Of course, if u fully use the 2.1A then the GNex and the BB 9320 get a fair bit warm.
