Thanks…
Press the power and volume down button simultaneously. That's what I do on my N4-but then, it should not be device specific.

Been using N4 since December, and would highly recommend the bumper, and nothing else, not even screen guards. Not a single scratch anywhere so far, touch wood.

Hey,

I am using this case on my Nexus 4.
Brilliant case, provides good drop protection (have dropped it say from 3 feet height a couple of times).
You can still keep the flashy finish on the rear panel visible.

One reason why I got this case, the buttons (power + volume rocker) are so easy to use. It is almost like there is no case on it.

Ringke Fusion - Recommended.

I have a couple of cases, but this one is my favourite! Least intrusive case. Go for it!

On Samsung phones, screenshot capture also works by swiping your palm (edge-on, as in a karate chop) across the phone's screen. Works in both directions.

On a Note 2, there's a third method too, if you want to edit screenshots as you capture them:

Using the Stylus pen, click the button on top of the Stylus once and then long press on the screen. Using this method also allows you to crop or draw on the screen capture.

"Sygic & MapmyIndia: GPS" is free right now on play store, don't know if it is a temporary offer or it has gone free permanently.

Are you able to use the same after download. I had tried it few days back, once you try to open the application it asks for purchase license.

I bought it for Rs.1468.59 in Sep'2012 so for me, it was showing already installed.

Then I installed it on my wife's phone and it got installed and working successfully.

Doesn't the licence cover use on up to five devices, so one purchase can support a family?

It's not free but a trial version. Anyway it is useless for me in my region (Kerala) since google maps has much much detailed map in this region. Paying up for an offline navigation app with very vague map isn't worth it.

Does HTC one has anything like the Samsung Kies Air function? Kies Air is amazingly convenient since I can transfer stuff on any computer anywhere without the need for cables etc.
