Day 3 with the XiaoMi Mi3

Day 3 on my experiment of going full Android with the XIAOMI Mi3
XIAOMI PHILIPPINES is selling an additional 2,000 units of the Mi3 04-July-2014 at 11:00AM visit If you want to get one I suggest you create an account today and then start refreshing the lazada site 5 mins before the item goes on sale. 
I am still struggling with the size of the device and there is still a sense of un-ease because I am using it without a case.

Speaking of cases, the Mi3 Flip case is no longer marked "coming soon" but I still cannot order it from lazada. Odd.

I have found that the plantronics [Find MyHeadset] app is not compatible (immediately crashes upon launch with no error messages).

I also think that the iPhone handles media & calls better, one time I was playing a podcast using PocketCasts and a call came in but the podcast did not pause playback and I had an active call with a podcast playing. I am not sure if the person on the other line heard this. I have not yet been able to replicate this so this may be a fluke or one time thing.

If I am being totally honest I am missing my iPhone. However I think it is good to change it up some times since I have been using the iPhone for so many years as a primary device.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
