Default Coming from an S4

This phone is great. But something I'm really missing from TouchWiz is the ability to swipe down from the top of the screen and immediately reveal settings (i.e brightness, lock orientation, wifi etc.).

Are there any apps available that provide this functionality?

A solution has been posted but if you're after something more like on a Galaxy then try the app "settings extended"

I came from the S3 and use it as I missed the quick toggles that I use often

One thing I really wish google would implement from the custom ROM community is the customizable quicksettings tiles and the quick pull down.

That would essentially give you everything you're asking for, but is currently available only for rooted users.

Just install power toggle and you're good. Don't forget to check on Notification within app.

just to clarify, simply swipe down from the notification area wit "two" fingers instead of one.

+1 for Power Toggle

I came from a Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 and missed this as well. Power Toggle is awsome.

It is for me, screen rotate, flashlight, mobile data, quick audio and wifi hotspot toggles aren't accessible using the two fingered swipe. All stuff I use daily.

This is some of what's available for rooted users (sound is as well, but I have it configured not to show up)

That's all available with a pulldown with one finger on the right side of the screen.

If you pulldown on the left side that's your normal notification panel.

Not that I'm trying to convince people to root

Stock + Xposed + gravity box or just about any custom ROM already has it as a feature

I'll have a Nexus 5 in my hand next week. It may last 24hrs before being flashed with CM11. I love their notifications panel.
