App Ops

Seeing how you are the only Kit Kat phone out now, I have no other choice but to ask you.

Has 4.4 removed App Ops (which was introduced way back in 4.3)?

Might only be possible with a custom rom. Might be a couple of weeks to really get the ball rolling.

The GPS on my phone seems to be utterly useless, both on Google Maps and using GPS Status. I have to go outside to get a fix!

A borked chip or something that may be fixed in future? Does anyone else have a problem?

I used the gps last night. Set the destination from inside my house, then it took me to where I wanted to go.

My biggest concern is battery. I'm a moderate to heavy user depending on the day. Yesterday, I had to charge the battery twice. I hope I can find settings that helps keep the battery from draining so fast. Granted, my old phone's battery was just as bad, but I was hoping for better.

Q1) Is it possible to silence the notifications from certain apps (Gmail, Twitter, Facebook) only? I don't want to silence all notifications as that would include SMS messages.

Q2) Is it possible to lock the screen orientation? The Nexus 7 lets you do this from the pull-down menu, I don't know why this would be omitted from the Nexus 5.

1 is dependent on the notification settings of that app. For each app you described, there's an option to choose your ringtone in its settings. If you choose none, it won't alert you.

2 yes its possible

How to activate GPS in this phone? I'm coming from Samsung, and I could activate or deactivate GPS as I go. Does nexus 5 has such an option, or is it always on? Also is there any way to assign different ringtones to different contacts? Again, in Samsung you just long press contact and menu pops up, and you can do such a things.
Thank you.

Q1) I've updated the settings for Gmail and FB, but Twitter isn't playing ball. There's no setting I can see to select a ringtone or disable the vibrate, only a "Sound effects" checkbox which I had already unchecked, but I'm still hearing a "ding" for every tweet I receive.

Q2) Thanks, so how do I proceed to do this? Ideally it would work like the Nexus 7 i.e. I could lock the phone in its current orientation, whether that's portrait or landscape, and subsequently unlock.

To lock the screen orientation, two finger swipe down from the top, then press settings. Click display, then uncheck auto rotate screen. I haven't found a shortcut yet.

Thanks - appreciate the tip. I was aware of that setting but it's not the same as the Nexus 7 setting and definitely inferior. By unchecking this box, it locks the device in portrait mode. What if I want it locked in landscape mode instead?

You have to sing into google + on your computer,click on the keyboard icon in top right,then find your photo's,delete them all and picasa will be gone.You can delete auto upload photo's pretty much the same way but think its under "more".

Widgetsoid people. Almost any shorcut control you want at the top of the Notification screen (or as a widget). Mine doesn't have rotate lock, but it is an option.

Oh, and AirPlane mode doesn't work since Google changed the security permissions, but I leave it there in hope.

One question about Google Now on the N5. I've accidentally swiped-away some things I would like to see. Stock quotes for example. I accidentally swiped them away because I forgot I didn't have another screen to the left of my Google Now. All of my individual stocks as well as the stocks card in general as listed as "YES" in the YES or NO settings on whether I want to see updates on my stocks but the card has never reappeared since I did that yesterday.

I like Google Now a lot in general, but a few things like that are tricky since you don't necessarily tell it exactly what you want to see NOW, rather you tell it YES or NO on whether you want to see those cards period and then Google Now seems to kind of choose when they show you stuff. I like the concept, but maybe I'm missing something with the stocks. I thought maybe they would appear at the opening bell today once they had activity. That would have been nice (to have them show from open to close bells and then disappear after that).

I did the same accidental swipe-away for my local weather cards in Google Now. It was 8-12 hours before they showed up again after I changed them back to YES. I don't know how Google Now decides when it's time to display them again.

Never mind, yes it does.

Nope, it doesn't. It sets up, and you can see the texts on the computer, but you can't respond. So question stands. Is there a way to both see and REPLY to texts on the computer with hangouts?
FYI - From MightyText email to me:

We're making a few changes to our phone app to make MightyText work well with KitKat (Android 4.4). After we test these changes later this week, we plan to release an updated MightyText app on the play store that is KitKat compatible.

Try a launcher such as Nova, they usually let you change the grid size (how many icons per screen) and icon size.

In location settings at the top there's different options.

I should have asked in this thread rather than starting a new one... but basically does anyone know if the nexus 5 plays 24-bit audio?

Thank you.

Go into the People app and select a contact. Look at the top right and you'll see three dots next to a star. Tap on the three dots to open the menu and assign ringtone is one of the options.

I didn't like the big icons either. You can shrink them with Apex Launcher too, but you lose the OK Google Now function from home screen.

Regarding the square register/card reader. LG phones notoriously don't work with the card reader, if anyone has the n5 and the square reader could you let me know if it swipes cards? thanks!

Facebook doesn't seem to open.

I can say "OK Google" "Launch Facebook" and Google Now will say "Opening App" but it doesn't.

Others I tried worked - Twitter, BBC iPlayer, Netflix, eBay....

I'm not sure why you would want to open an app this way though, it takes ages!

Default Audio quality with aux cable & call quality

I am noticing that the audio quality with an aux cable is not as rich as from an iPhone. I recently migrated and I love the N5 for a lot of reasons, but when it comes to listening to music in my car, I still find myself going for my iPh.
I am not noticing any distortion or sound artifacts, just a little more muffled and toned down.

Also people are reporting that voice during calls has more echo. They are able to hear and understand, but to them it just sounds like I am talking from an empty room.

Is this just my device or has this been observed?

thanks,
Spy

Power Toggles will do this, but I think the stock pull-down is just settings and notifications

You mean hold the power botton for a sec until
a menu shows up ?

So what's the fastest way to turn data off ?

If you swipe down with one finger, all you get are notifications and a button to swap to power toggles. If you swipe down with 2 fingers, you go right to power toggles which give you shortcuts/toggles for brightness, settings, wifi, data, battery, airplane mode, bluetooth, and location settings.

Like Chukka63 said, two-finger swipe down, and you can see the icons for wifi, bluetooth, mobile data, airplane mode, location, etc.

LONG press toggles them on and off. Short press will open that setting so you can make changes.

What is it when screen has a blue outline?
How did it get there?
How to rid of it?


It zooms in the screen when tapped 3X

Tap again and it goes away.

Others I tried worked - Twitter, BBC iPlayer, Netflix, eBay....

I'm not sure why you would want to open an app this way though, it takes ages!
I used to have this issue though a reboot seemed to fix it... I wouldnt put any faith in the reboot though, as it may have just been a fluke for such a simple fix

Talking Considering buying Google Nexus 5 for use in Indoesia.

Hi there,

I have a question regarding the Google Nexus 5...

It's currently unavailable in Indonesia and so I am considering purchasing it from the Australian Google Play Store.

My question is - If I buy the phone in Australia (direct from the Google Play Store...) will it work at home in Indonesia on the Telkomsel network.

I look forward to a reply from anyone who can help me on this.

Thanks and kind regards,

Nick

Well the phone is unlocked and not region specific; so as long as Telkomsel has the supported bands for the N5; it should work. If you know what bands Telkomsel uses that'd help, but I'd wager a fair bit that Telkomsel works with atleast some of the following bands: 1/2/4/5/17/19/25/26/41

Hi there,

Thank you for your reply.

I understand Telksomsel operates on the following frequency - Operates on dual band GSM 900 & 1800 MHz frequencies in Indonesia.

I have also found out the following: -

TELKOMSEL Details
TELKOMSEL is one of the 7 cellular networks in Indonesia. TELKOMSEL is owned and operated by PT Telekomunikasi Selular

TELKOMSEL has an average 3G download speed of 1.7 Mb/s, which is worse than the global average of 1.8 Mb/s.

TELKOMSEL uses the GSM 900 / GSM 1800 / UMTS 2100/apn free arutmin frequency bands for its network.

With that information in mind, could you advise whether the Nexus 5 will work on Telkomsel in Indonesia?

Thanks!
