I'm worried about my nexus 5. I'm using the L dev preview. I was having problems with an app lagging. It was bacon reader. So I exited the app figuring it was going to FC but then my system ui started lagging for instance I pressed the recent apps button and the back button was still lit up. So then I turned the screen off. Now the screen wont turn back on at all. I let it sit for a little while and I still get nothing. Getting kind of scared now.

Okay thank you to everyone who responded. This is a great community. After letting the phone sit for a while charging I unplugged it which automatically initiated the screen. I still had no ui on the phone just the wallpaper without nav buttons or a top action bar. I was able to power the phone off and then turn it back on and everything seems fine now. I think it was like a perfect storm of lag. +Bill Shallcross When I turned it back on it was instantly updating apps so maybe that did have something to do with it before. Thanks again guys.

I was wondering if anyone can tell me whether or not it's possible to hide the "Other contacts" section in Hangouts. I hate having my phone contacts mixed in with random G+ users. It's not like I'm ever going to hit up Richard Branson or Sergey Brin on Hangouts. Theres tons of people in there that I don't even know. I was able to hide the "suggested contacts" or whatever but not the "other contacts." Is there anything I can do?

November 2014: Just in time for the holidays ..introducing...5k TVs ...

I just want to know if they will call it a day after 4k since most people already cannot physically view the diference. The display companies have already been milking this as their business model for a long time. The well is going to dry up eventually or maybe they will jump the shark with 5k 100dpi screens.

What will they come up with next?

Do other people have a problem with getting their screen to display during a call? Lets say you accidentally called someone and you are trying to end the call. Do you ever have a hard time getting the screen to turn back on to end the call? I try holding it to my face and pulling it away but it doesn't always work. Sometimes it just flashes the screen for a second and goes blank again. pushing the power button doesn't help either. Is it just me?

I've had this a couple of times as well. Pressing the power button turns the display back on.

I was wondering if someone could give me some advice. My Nexus 4 is acting strange and I need help. Earlier today I was changing some hybrid settings in PA. While it was "applying" the phone froze. It stayed frozen for a while so I held the power down to reset the phone. After this it was stuck on the boot animation. I decided to do a factory reset, reinstall PA, install Gapps, then wipe cache and dalvik cache. Then I rebooted the phone. I got past the boot animation and the screen is just black. The backlight is on and I can see the screen off animation. I can even press buttons on the screen and the phone plays the sounds. I can get it into a emergency call by pressing randomly and then I can hear the sounds of the dialer. Unfortunately there is nothing on my screen its just black. Did I ruin it?

I have a problem with my Nexus 4. 

If I drop the phone from a height of 2 inches onto a table so that it lands perfectly parallel onto its back then the phone turns off. This is with a case on the phone and all it takes is 2 inches. One time while testing this I dropped it onto a folded up napkin from 2 inches with the case on and it shuts down. 

I can smack the phone against the edge of the table on any edge and nothing happens. It only occurs when landing on its back. It seems as though the battery has room to move around on the inside or something and it's disconnecting itself.

This is especially annoying because 2 inches is really not that much of a fall especially with a thick TPU case. Sometimes it happens from even less of a height. Frequently ill set my phone on the table and not think about it until I reach for it 2 hours later to find that it was off the entire time. 

Has anyone noticed this problem or seen this happen? Its quite absurd literally from here___





               to here____                  and the phone will shut down every time. Hold your N4 up to the screen thats not a long fall.

I haven't tried it with my phone but it is a bad idea.

What you basically do is create a shock wave on your acceleration sensors. They are micro mechanic leavers but they do use mechanical movement and you damage them a little bit with every sharp shock.

+Koushik Dutta  Is it more fun for you to cheat on #ingress? It's one thing if you are trying to clue google into possible bugs or loopholes. It's an entirely different thing to promote cheating and explain to everyone on G+ how they can fake themselves through the game. 

Of course I could do some mock locations ....but thats not fun. I genuinely want to know if you honestly find that more fun. Is this something you do often? It sucks that you got invited when there are probably tons of people who want to play the game in an honest manner without cheating. 

Please stop contributing to the degradation of an extremely original game. You get nothing out of that. I'm decently positive that someone in my area has been using the hack that you have been boasting about. Guess what ...it sucks for everyone else. This does not make you a mastermind. This does not make you special. It makes you look like a fucking asshole.

I usually enjoy most things you talk about and there are apps that you have written that make my life easier on a daily basis. However I am excited about this game and now that we have a cheating problem it's going downhill. At this poing we all know that Koushik knows how to cheat. Give yourself a pat on the fucking back...and then stop talking about it. There is no popularity contest for cheating.
