What little known feature of Android do you use the most?  - 
 
This may be a dumb question but I wanted to ask if its possible to directly upgrade from 4.4.4 to 5.1.1 when the OTA updates pushes to my area. Read today that its been released by Google but seeing as this is mg first Android product I'm uncertain if Google compiles the updates as Apple did for some phones and let's users skip the in between updates.

Thanks for the intel in advance.

Hello Android community! I'm fairly new to the platform having switched from iOS early December of last year. I wanted to ask the community for a recommendation on how to do a complete backup similar to that which was available on iOS. I backup to my Google account but I wanted to try and perform a full backup, without rooting it if possible.

Thank you!

Issue: I'm not sure whether anyone else has experienced this but ever since updating my Nexus 5 to 5.1.1 I've noticed that my Contacts app has essentially mixed up a ton of my contacts. Merged ones that are completely unrelated to one another and or removed some completely. Looking at my contacts through the web portal however I see that they're all fine. What's going on?

Also, Hangouts seems to have a new issue as well, its separated my Hangouts and SMS despite it being set to merge. Anyone find any solutions to these two issue?

Thanks for the help.

Hi Everyone,

I posed this question and I lost the thread so I am sorry for posting this again. I'm running 4.4.4. on my Nexus 5 and I'm ready to move up to the latest OS edition. I'm hoping to just do an OTA update but before I do I need to do a full backup. I understand I need to root first. So I need help. I'm accustomed to doing this on iOS and I'm still learning the Android platform. Any and all help/suggestions are welcome and thank you guys for your help in advance.

Why do you need to do a backup if you're getting an OTA update? Won't it keep all your data?

Hey everyone,

Wondering of there is a page or thread that tracks Xur. Need to find that Urn for one of the side missions.

Thanks.

Seems to me as of late that I've slowly made my progression from #iOS to #Android. First tablet was a #iPad2 and now I'm on a #SamsungTab4

Good quality sushi. Prices are around average however they only accept cash or VISA now, so come prepared.

A few people and I had gone out yesterday (Oct 16, 2014) to grab a few drinks here. None of us had been here before so we were all curious to experience it. Overall unfortunately the place disappointed. It is beautifully decorated, the atmosphere was nice but the service that night was lacking and in some instances, non-existent. I had ordered the Hofbräu Helles Lager (which was good) but I was shocked when I had received it in a 1L pint. The menu offered two variations, 20 oz and 1L, but when I had tried to flag the waitress down to ask if what I had ordered only came in the size I was given, her response was a quick "this is our standard size for this beer" and quickly ran off. First cardinal rule of serving alcohol is ALWAYS ask the customer which size they want, in my case I was not asked. I don't care if there is a "standard size", it wasn't what I ordered. Because it took her so long (nearly 15 minutes) to come back, I had given up on trying to downgrade. Another point against this establishment was the service intervals. What I specifically mean is how long it took the server to attend to us. The girls at one point reordered drinks and they did not arrive until 20 minutes after having been poured. We all had seen the bartender pour the drinks but our server was too busy it seemed chatting with either other coworkers or friends that had come in and sat at the bar, to deliver us our drinks. They came flat and in one case there was nearly 1/5 of head in the girls beer. Perhaps we had come in on a bad night, although it was nearly dead as we arrived after 11:30pm, or perhaps we weren't the clientele the establishment was used to as it seemed that people around us were better dressed. Well the group I had come in with had just finished up work themselves and just wanted to have a few drinks. No need to go get dressed up for that. We didn't eat here that night and to be honest it seems very overpriced for what they offer. Might try coming back for a meal however to simply grab a few drinks, march over to West 50 which is just down the block. Last I was there the service was good.

I was invited to have lunch with some business colleagues here and I have to admit that it was overall disappointing. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive however the food was not. I had ordered the Chicken Tenders Salad which came nicely presented however the chicken was very dry. In order to stomach the 2 of 4 pieces I had to dip it into the odd plum sauce which was provided. We did not order any beers this time around, however I was told that its a great place to try some brews, just not eat.

Came here late mid-week to grab some ribs with my wife. She ended up having the Buttermilk chicken which was excellent. The full-rack of ribs I ordered however could have been better. Don't think I'd come back for just ribs, there are other better options out there. Service was good and the waitress was friendly.

I discovered this place through a friend and I enjoy coming here, despite the fact that it's completely out of the way. Cozy little spot with great staff. Both Daniel and Renata are wonderful to talk to and truly make you feel welcomed. During the summer the back patio is open to patrons as well as there are a few small tables at the store front. Delicious teas and handful of snacks. Well worth the 20 minute drive!

This place is the standard to which other sushi places I've compared to. The food is excellent and the service is great. Quick, fresh and tentative to your needs. A nice place to grab a quick dinner or to celebrate a special occasion. Definitely recommend to make a reservation as this place is always busy.
