I'm just an average person, that uniquely combines strict, engineering mind with a non-schematic, humanistic and magical way of looking on life and surrounding world.

Add a little bit of madness, and you'll get entire picture of me! :]

I'm a developer, both desktop and mobile, with 15+ years of experience and 50+ small-to-big projects on account. In the very same time I'm a writer with similar experience and a lot of books, articles, blog posts or own blogs ideas on account.

comment Can I use OTG USB pendrive with Galaxy Nexus
One side question: Is there any way to determine, approximately how many devices with Android will require root to use USB OTG pendrive? I only need general answer. Is this something normal (70-90% devices requires this) or something unique (10-30% devices requires this or even Galaxy Nexus is a lonely exception).

comment Can I use OTG USB pendrive with Galaxy Nexus
Again, I was rather looking for an everyday newbie user solution. Not the one, that requires rooting or playing with terminal. So, while I'm grateful for your answers, the real answer to my question is (at least for me): "You can't".

comment Large difference in battery discharge, when Nexus 7 is on and off
At the very moment of writing this (Wenesday, 9:30 GMT) tablet has 45% of battery charge, though, it wasn't charged since previous Thursday! It seems, that it is going to manage until tomorrow evening, without charging, which will make it operable for entire week on one charging. While (when constantly being turned on), it wasn't able to "survive" one entire day. I'm devastated with the differences in battery consumption, when this device is on and off. What can drain battery so badly, when device is permanently turned off?

comment Should I keep my Android tablets' power off or leave them on standby mode?
@Decoder Most "app killers" consumes much more energy for themselves, than they really "free" up. Read more about this subject, as it is very well documented and discussed in the Internet. In most cases, using this kind of apps is not suggested as a good idea. Internal device solutions (software + hardware) does better for this purpose, in general.

comment Enable LTE on Google Nexus 7 (2013) LTE tablet
Another addition, after testing this Nexus 7 with another LTE-enabled carrier (Plus GSM, Poland): Though many carriers claims, that LTE network is enabled by default or on self-configurable, SIM-provided APNs, it many cases this turns out to be not true. So, there isn't any specific switch in Nexus 7, what I asked for, but certainly there could be a specific APN, that you have to enter to make your mobile device log into LTE network. If your device is unable to use LTE network, check APN settings at first.

comment How to check, if my ASUS Nexus 7 LTE really is LTE version?
Hi Izzy. Turned out, you were right and carrier's customer support was wrong. SIM cards for this carrier (Plus GSM, Poland) are self-configurable, but only for up to 3G network. LTE network, since is still being a rather new / tested solution, requires special APN settings. Once entered manually, LTE on my Nexus 7 started to work immediately and I got godspeeds of around 27 MB/s download. Please, convert key points from your comments to full answer, so I can accept it. Thanks.
