How do I change text colors for the clock and other text? I have been using metamorph and ninjamorph to make icon and bar adjustments, but dialpad and the text evade me at this time.

Questions about the S4 (before getting one)
location: droidradar.com - date: April 7, 2014
I am currently in between thought between what phone I should get. I have the S relay but with the recent update that was for it the phone cant handle the possessor (or something like that is what the tech support guy from T-Mobile said) and my phone keeps crashing which is a shame because I love this phone.
Anyways The three phones I am looking at are the S4 S5 and the M8 but I am probably going to get the s4.
But I have a few questions before i get it
1. I noticed that it has a lot of white as the color of the apps and stuff (text messages the phone screen) as may app updates have been using but I really cant see with white. All my phones are usually programed to black as and my first cell phone had that as an option. My question is there a way to invert the color to negative with out everything being negative without rooting it Ie: the phone keys, texts and the keyboard
2. What is the difference between the regular S4 and the Google edition and how can I tell which one I
Call bloking on jelly bean, changed, general questions and advice?
location: droidradar.com - date: September 28, 2013
i recently updated from ics to jelly bean 4.1.2 on my Samsung galaxy s2 on 02 uk network,
i have noticed a few different issues since the update though regarding blocking calls and i notice the feature isnt as good since the update
previously on ics when blocking a number, once a number called they would be present with "dud a duh sound" which made the phone sound like the number was disconnected it would also not divert the blocked number to the voice mail
since doing a test on jelly bean when blocking a number, it now diverts them to the voice mail, and what's more annoying is once a blocked number calls it seems to one ring on my phone and then divert them to the voice mail, similar to as if i was cancelling there call every time, which is no were near as effective
ive just tried an app called mr number and this is the same, although this does have the option of a "hangup feature" and a send to "voicemail feature" again when the blocked numbe

I'm using the web browser that comes loaded onto the phone. (HTC browser, not Chrome) I use the navigation bar that's at the bottom of the screen and have customized it with my bookmarks. Issue that just started yesterday: For some reason it started opening my bookmarks in a separate window, now includes an advertisement at the bottom, and has an "X" up at the top right to close out the session. It no longer opens my bookmarks in the browser itself. Has anyone else encountered this? If so, know how to get it back to normal? I've reset the browser to defaults and it's stll doing it. Literally just started yesterday. I also can't toggle from left to right in the navigation bar either. Again, this is only affecting the navigation bar at the bottom.
Can you view my screenshot attachment? If so, you'll see that it's opening a separate window with the advertisement at the bottom and the X at the top right.
Any suggestions to get it back to normal?
Android + PC + webcam questions
location: droidradar.com - date: August 5, 2013
I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to get my android augmented reality apps onto the TV or PC screen and use a camera other than the android devices for input.
Is there a way to get an emulator on a pc running an android app to use a webcam as input?
I have some apps that use the phone's camera to track targets. The AR library doesn't have a standalone pc or mac version, only android and ios. I want to do something different for trade shows and such with a big screen, and ideally a higher resolution camera than the device has....
If that's not possible, I guess I can point the android's camera at the crowd, and somehow display what's happening in the app to a TV/LED screen. Any ideas on what could easily do this?
Also would a networked TV running android OS be able to use an external camera?
Questions about Nexus 4 File Transfers and Internal Storage Structure
location: droidradar.com - date: December 20, 2012
1) i noticed that even though the nexus 4 don't have an Sd card slot and only internal storage, the internal storage is emulated as an external sd card. i found this when using espxe and also es file explorer to browse through the folders. so is this true, the internal storage on the nexus 4 is emulated as external sd card? is this true for all android devices too?
2) when i play my usb to to transfer files. it really did not matter which folder i put my files into cause all the apps read from the location and it'll scan all the folders in that location for the files anyway? for example even if i put a pdf inside the adobe reader folder or if i put it outside of the adobe folder, it'll still find it. so this means all android app reads from one top level folder?
again these are my speculations and i want to learn more about it, if anyone knows anything about this or knows any good links to sites that can explain these stuff to me, please link me. google's device support pa
2.2 update feature questions
location: droidradar.com - date: March 29, 2011
After applying the OTA update, I have noticed two things with certain features on my phone.
In 2.1, when I had the alarm set, I could press dismiss to turn it off and the phone would lock as per the display lock setting. Now that I've applied the 2.2 update, the phone immediately locks.
In 2.1, when an application was removed, the remaining applications would shift to fill the space. When I downloaded a new application, it would for the most part get inserted in the proper order and all other application icons would move. Sometimes, a new application would get installed and would show up at end of the application listing. In other words, I would have to press applications, and then scroll through the pages until I reached the end, in order to find the newly installed application. Changing from grid view to list view and back to grid view would sort the list.
In 2.2, this does not happen. The application icons remain in place when something is removed. Anything new I add is first

Switching to Android.. never owned one. I have questions and need advice.. thanks :)

I went from Blackberry to Windows phone. I chose windows phone because of Nokia and Nokia only. I was thinking of jumping ship because I'm tired of WP being behind in everything. Now that Nokia has been sold, that was the final nail in the coffin.
I always hoped Nokia would make an android phone. Nokia (IMHO) was the best.
Don't want an Iphone because I want a bigger screen and customization.
I have my eye on the Nexus 5. 5 inch screen is kind of big. 4.5 is perfect, but it looks like all new devices are going the bigger route.
This is all perfect timing for me as it seems all the new phones are coming out very soon.
I have a few simple questions if you all wouldn't mind answering so I can make this transition smoother. Maybe you guys can help me choose a phone.
I really like the Live Tiles on my WP. I read that widgets are better. HTC looks pretty sweet. Do all android phones have widgets?
Can I plug my phone to my PC with a USB cable and drag and drop
