Not gonna read through a ton of these pages and someone might have had this happen to them already, but if you ordered a Nexus 5 and returned it back to Google Play, make sure you check that they do give you back the credit for your refund. I ordered back on launch day Nov. 1, but returned it because I felt that my Nexus 4 was still good enough for me. Return was received by Google back on Nov. 13, but they never ended up giving me back credit. Called them today and they processed it, told me to wait 3-5 days. It's suppose to take up to 14 days for the return to happen, but it was past that for me.

For anyone who is still planning on ordering screen protector, try citigeeks. I bought their anti-glare screen protectors for my Nexus 4 and I was very impressed with it. I ordered the ones for my Nexus 5 this weekend and it was delivered in 3 days.

4.4.2 update was a beauty. All my Nexus devices rooted access survived.

Interesting on the larger speaker holes, I haven't tried to the speaker volume since getting 4.4.2 though but the camera is drastically improved and I love it now.

Has anyone purchased the Google Bumper? Thoughts?

I was debating whether I should get it. Looking at the pictures on Google Play, I don't think that it provides enough protection from drops, seeing the video of "naked" phone drop. I decided that I would need a case with more cushioning at the corners, so, I would have to go with a bulkier case. Now I've got another dilemma: Spigen Slim Armor, Ballistic (http://www.blueshop.ca/ballistic-shell- ... A16557.htm), upcoming ZeroLemon (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthr ... ?t=2549908) or i-Blason (http://www.amazon.com/i-Blason-Google-N ... ttery+case)

What texting apps are people using? I can't stand this hangouts one. It's terrible.
