Being fee a new lollipopper I'm having fun with sound modes!
However this is about android wear.

When in priority mode (star icon) I don't get any vibrating on the watch.

One of the most impressive pictures I've managed to take of my dog with my +OnePlus​ One and no filters or other tweaking

Can someone recommend a similar form factor android tablet?

Hands on with Cyanogen OS 12 for the OnePlus One http://www.androidcentral.com/hands-cyanogen-os-12s-oneplus-one
OnePlus users now have two Lollipops to choose from, though this one will arrive via an over-the-air update. Android users the world over were treated to quite the change of pace last year when the folks from the newly formed Cyanogen Inc. and a spinoff from Oppo launched a new high-end phone with a mid-range price tag.

Nexus Player acquired!

So far so good. 5.1 installed and now now Plex done. I think I need to grab the controller though and install 1 game (as that's all I'll probably get installed).

I wasn't going to but i've just reserved +Nexus TV from +Argos despite it's flaws(8GB Storage & Wifi only).

I may change my mind but it's looking doubtful!  It'll be the warmup before i get the Shield Console! :D

Not sure I'll be bothered with it. If Sky give Sky Go give support then I'll certainly have a look.

I caved in and went and upgraded the oneplus to Blisspop lollipop cm12 ROM!
Had a couple of teething problems but everything is sorted for now!
I just need to figure out all the new features that have been added since CM11!

I've been using it for months and just stuck with it because it always has been stable

Is a CM nightly stable enough as a daily driver?
