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 Force shutdown on a Galaxy Nexus?
Hm... My Galaxy Nexus, that I bought on May 2012 (so, before your question) once I press and hold Power Button, always shows shut down menu, which does include "Power Off" option. Your doesn't? What am I missing?

comment How do I remove an incorrect word from autocorrect?
+1 Great Googly One. I have exactly the same environment, i.e. Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.3. I went to Settings > Apps > All > Google Keyboard and all I see is: Force stopd (does nothing), Disable, Clear data and Clear cache. Plus long list of permissions. How did you managed to uninstall all updates (or uninstall anything) to this system service?

comment How do I remove an incorrect word from autocorrect?
On Android 4.3 and Samsung Galaxy Nexus this is not working at all. When I long-press incorrectly suggested word, all I see, are other suggested words. No sign of delete or edit option.

comment Looking for an MP3 player with playlist
Software recommendations-type like questions are not welcome to this site or any in the SE network. And that is probably, why your question got -1.

comment Should I accept 2,5 year old Samsung Galaxy replacement battery?
@DanHulme Sorry, for that. Here you go. Maybe this, this or this one. Basically, I assume, this is a manufacture date. So, the question remains: can 2,5 year battery be of any worth, even if shop sells it as "brand new" and gives 6 months warranty on it?

comment Split phone calls by day
Correct, but not exactly. "Sort by day" will only sort... by day. I have to summarize number of calls and total length myself. I'm more like looking for "split by day", which will sort by day and summarize, how many calls (lasting totally how long) I made each and every day.

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".

I forgot to add (to my question) that, I'm asking for an answer without need of root, but you were faster! :] Thank you...

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.

comment How can I save photos that I take with my Android's camera in a lossless format?
I think, that converting JPGs to TIFFs is not an option for anyone! :> Anyway, there is a small (very small and unconfirmed) chance that any real camera with Android (like Samsung Galaxy Camera will have "something around RAW or lossless photos". But, since it is still based on Android, ZnewmaN's answers will probably be valid. Chances, that you're going to get it on GS3 or any other phone with camera on board are even smaller (for below mentioned resons).

comment Force Android's default photo browser to display only images on KitKat
If I'm not mistaken, you can sign-off Google+ just in Photos application itself. Google was (I think) kind enough to let you browse your photos, without need to publish everything at once to the entire world. Then you could check, if -- after signing off Google+ -- your Photos application start to look closer to my screenshot.

comment Force Android's default photo browser to display only images on KitKat
Thanks for your contribution. We can summarize, that if I sign to Google+ (which I personally hate), I'll have an option to filter and to force Photos to display... only photos, right? LOL! Stupid, like a hell, but possible -- it's Google, right!

comment Force Android's default photo browser to display only images on KitKat
Are we talking about the same application. This is, what I see, when I open Photos application on my 4.4.2 Kitkat. No search icon, no clacker, no nothing. Only two tabs, one folder (that I have to always tap as first, which is very annoying) and standard three-dot menu button, which holds only settings, which doesn't allow me to set, that I want to see only photos.

comment What size of SIM card Nexus 7 2013 LTE TMo comes with?
@Compro01 Even less than that! :> Take a look at new iPad Mini / iPad Air / iPhone 5 and their nanoSIM cards. If you use proper card cutter to cut SIM/microSIM cards to nanoSIM size, you'll clearly see, that outer parts of connector itself are also cut-off. I was shocked at first to find this out! :>
