    Well to lighten up the mood some. I'm heading to Liverpool tomorrow to see some of this:
    BBC News - Liverpool giants: Memories of August 1914 route announced

    I guess we're still kids. :P

    With all these heating issues I'm still amazed that my G3 hasn't even felt warm so far.

    I guess I have to download a 3D game, this resolution combined with demanding graphics will like heat the phone up. Something for tonight to kill the battery, people say the battery should be entirely empty once that the phone can adjust to the real battery levels.

    That's incorrect actually. With the type of batteries in phones this is not necessary. They batteries are set up in a certain way that they don't actually empty all the way unless the phone is left for several months, in which case the battery may not work. That's why there's a charge on your phone when you get it. These types of batteries like to be charged up. They're not supposed to hold a memory but apparently they do to some extent.

    They're designed to work better after a few cycles charge and discharge. But not fully discharged.

    I thought those are two different things.

    Memory effect and all that is history (however the battery becomes a little less efficient with every charge, leading to a noticeable effect after months/years). But it could be that "the software needs to get to know the battery first" is only an urban... an internet myth.

    The discharge thing had to do with the memory effect.

    Can you try Google Earth? Open it and use a street view for some time. This was the only thing that was able to heat galaxy S5 noticeable after 5 or 10 minutes. Test it and let us know ;).

    I was referring to this here:

    There’s only one problem that shallow discharges can cause. Laptops can get a bit confused by shallow discharges and may show you wrong estimates for how long your device’s battery will last. Laptop manufacturers recommend you perform a full discharge about once per month to help calibrate the device’s battery time estimate.

    Not sure. The whole battery thing gets a bit confusing to be honest. That link I sent you also has a link to Battery University. It's apparently a good site for information.

    I think doing proper charge/discharge cycling should do the trick. I don't think full discharge is needed but I'm not an expert. :P

    Doesn't really matter, 4h 58 min running, 94 %. Of course with only little usage ;-)

    Morning! Thank you for the sharing of apks, theme and launder doesn't work. For theme I probably have to old version of Android and Z launder says my device is rooted. But it's not because programs which require root don't work. Odd.

    What version of Android do you have? That's odd indeed.

    Lots of things happen in the world when I sleep. Whether they have any effect on me is a different matter. :P

    As for when I'm actually sleeping, aside from the rolling around and shifting that everyone does, not much happens thankfully.

    I use my job's WiFi to post from my devices on WPCentral. Maybe your job's WiFi is sympathetic to MSFT and doesn't like how you've been crushing them so it won't let your 920 on...lol...

    Speaking of sleep, it has been interesting tracking mine with the smartband. I don't get enough deep sleep.
