Caller ID by Google. Has this feature actually ever worked for anyone? I've never had a call where Google ID'ed anyone.

Been wanting the colored X on the back of my phone and missed out when dbrands did the colored cut outs, and had parts of my X starting to peel off, so decided there's no better time to figure out how to color the X. Picked off the X and initially I was going to use the Testors brand of model paint. Got all the colors and got silver too so I could pick of the rest of the letters and do them as well. Along with the model paint I got some small syringes and some tiny craft needles and was going to put the paint in the grooves with the needle. Problem is, the paint in the syringe had a very tiny constant drip. The drip was slow, but too fast to get into each groove without getting some on the outside. I only managed to get the straight up and down part of the N done and had go another route. Watched a YouTube video of a guy that was coloring his Nexus 7 tablet and he had Sharpie Paint Pens. Never knew they had such an item. In his video he got pens with tips that were just a bit too big, he even says it in the video. I found a pack of pens on Amazon that had all the colors I needed with a fine tip on it. Works perfect! Here's some pics of the process, and links to get the pens to do it yourself. In the pics, it's just one layer of paint. I'm going to do more the next couple days as it dries, and then a touch of clean up if needed. The purple phone is my mom's phone. She wanted the X colored on her's too.

Got a Mi Band a few weeks ago after using a Fitbit and getting lots of added steps and inaccurate numbers. For $150 that's totally unacceptable. The Fitbit was adding 600+ steps just driving. After I got the Mi Band, drove the same route and it only added 11 steps. But for $15 that's much more acceptable. Huge price difference, and more accuracy. The Mi Band does add about 1000 steps a day just from arm movements, so whatever your goal may be, you need to add about 1000 steps to the goal in the app to be more accurate in real life. The Mi Band claims to have a 30 day battery life. Check out the pic. Going to be well over 30 days on one charge. Amazing! Read on a couple sites an upgraded model is in the works that will have a heart rate monitor, and the price is going to be low just like this one. Looking forward to that one when it comes out.

Troubleshooting  - 
 
Has anyone found a way to get pictures of contacts to work again? An automatic method. I know Google+ pictures will show up as the contacts picture, but unfortunately not too many people use Google+ over Facebook. There were a couple apps that would sync Facebook pics to contacts, but Facebook changed to API and broke the ability to do it. Pretty boring seeing a bunch of colored circles with a letter in it for all the different contacts.

Installed it and it doesn't find any contacts. Facebook changes killed it all.

All the Facebook vs. Google vs. Apple fighting like little bitches and not wanting things from each their own companies working on any of the other's things and us, the users, end up missing out.

I used to use Chrome Beta but it kept opening links in Facebook differently then the stable version. It was certain news articles, the pages would always open to a list of the articles instead of the direct link the person posted. Maybe I'll reinstall it and see if it still does that.

I have pics saved on my phone to post for people when they have a birthday. I have them saved in a folder called "Birthdays" and it has 84 pics in it. If I use the Photos app and Piktures app all the pics in the folder show up. When I look in the same folder in Focus only 16 pics show up. What would be causing all the pics not to show up in Focus?

+Jason Weger that would work ideally, but not currently with my code. Would have to change too much and we plan on push this thing, officially, today.

Troubleshooting  - 
 
Anyone know why this is going on and how to stop it? Since Wednesday anytime I download an image off the internet, a Dropbox notification comes up right after I download and offers me to add the pic to my Dropbox. I have always had the sync photos settings to Dropbox turned off, and they still are in the app. I've looked in Chrome settings since I'm using Chrome as my browser, and no new options there. Looked in Photos app since I know that app updated recently, and no new options there. Also looked in two other photo apps on my phone, Focus and Piktures to see if they for some reason had some new settings, and nothing there either. Why the sudden Dropbox notifications? And any idea how to turn them off without going into Settings>Apps and turning off all of Dropbox's notifications?

Anyone else that got the +Slickwraps, Inc.​ Glow series having them come up easily? Think it might be coming up just from the slight heat the phone has when it charges. Also, notice the odd pinkish color in between the camera and the M logo. And no I don't have dirty pockets or fingers. The majority of the time the phone is out of my pocket and on clean surfaces. I got a purple Glitz Series one for my mom's N6 the same time I got this one and there's no issue with it at all. The two are made from different material, you can feel that. The Glow feels thicker then the Glitz.

I've not had any issues with the purple Glitz as yet but it's in a case. There was a heat signature between the wrap and the case, so I replaced the case. Minor heat signature effect now. I've had the same original wrap on a N6 32 gb, removed and placed on a 64 gb no issues at all. I didn't use a dryer for front nor sides so I just have the back piece on

Project Fi  - 
 
Have a question about Google Fi and Sprint. I'm not totally convinced that Google Fi could save me money. I need to track a heavy month of use and see exactly how much data I use. I've been thinking that if and when I can get Google Fi, to try it out for a month and see how it is, yet keep my Sprint account open for a month just in case. The question I have is, when I got my N6 I got it from Best Buy and did the two year contract. So if I got the Google Fi SIM card, could I just take out the Sprint one and use the Google one with no problems? Would there be some kind of lock on the phone since I did the two year contract? Again, I wouldn't be turning off Sprint right away, so not breaking the contract, just removing the SIM and not using their service for a period of time.

I was told if I port over Sprint hits me with remaining balance on my N6, I lose discounts for being with them over 18 years, and other things also. My data usage is heavy since I work 10 hrs a day and rarely get on laptop anymore. It might be worth it if WiFi hotspots where open in more locations but they are not.

Any recommendations for a multiple phone quick charger for the car? I'm fine with 2, 3, or 4 plug-in.

Are there any multiple quick charger for the car? Most that I find in Amazon look like they have 1 quick charge port and the others are regular ports. Want to be able to charge at least two of our Nexus 6 phones as quickly as possible.

Have some questions about photos and what Google is doing now. Since Google loves to make similar apps to one another (Gmail and Inbox, Hangouts and Messenger) with their recent tinkering with Google+ and Collections, and with all the recent talk about the Photos app, they have me a little confused and I want to make sure I'm understanding it all correctly. First, am I right by thinking all the albums I once had saved on Google+ have all now been turned into Collections using the same name the albums had? Also, all these Collections use space from the allotted amount Google gives my Gmail account?

Now questions about the Photos app. When backing up photos with the app, are all the photos stored only for me to see? Or do they get uploaded into the area all the photos are on my Google+ profile? I'm pretty sure Photos and Google+ are separate and they don't, but just want to make sure. So pretty much Google is making Photos their answer to iCloud?

Found my error. I was not logged into the main account. So now everything with the line through the cloud is backing up. Still getting used to this though.

Question about the new Smart Lock Password Manager. I have been using LastPass for a few years now. This new Google deal will be really nice and convenient as long as it's safe. What thoughts do you have about using the new Smart Lock way? As far as security, shouldn't it be pretty close to the same security as LastPass if two-step verification is being used in your Google account?
