To order Nexus 5 on play store, should I go to Play store via browser on laptop?
I'm unable to find it on play store from my Note 2 or Note 10.1. Thanks.

Ordered from desktop browser.

If you want to buy it from phone, you have to go to playstore from browser. It will throw a popup to use playstore app, ignore it and continue to the playstore on the browser.

+1 .... ordered one for myself too Black with 16GB.

BTW, the order page reads as "Purchased from Google Asia Commerce Pte Ltd." based in Singapore. Do you know where they ship from? If it's Singapore, will Custom Duty play a role?

It does not show up on my Nexus 4 play store either. However, came up on the laptop without a hitch. Try that.

On adding it to the cart and proceeding to payment option it shows that it accepts all credit and debit cards. Am just waiting for my local shop guy to confirm if he will be getting any stock. Not very comfortable in making such big purchases online. And I only posses a debit card and not a credit card.

Tasker Question -

I am trying to set up a dashcam sort of a system using my Gnex. While in car I use Torque extensively. So, I have created a profile which launches Secret Video Recorder (to record video in background) when Torque starts and stops it when Torque exits. Problem with this setup is video is recorded to a single file. I want it to record in segments of say 5-10 mins. The recording app doesn't have this option. Any ideas how to achieve this through tasker?

Basically, how to stop and start the recording app while Torque Pro is running every 5 mins?

Greetings Android Gurus,

I have a question related to Rooting & Root Access.

I am currently using Samsung Galaxy S Advance. I have learnt and found out the way to root the device. Now i need to know is, Main benefits of rooting apart from custom roms?

1. Can i remove all the unwanted samsung blaotware? How?
2. I hate the touch wiz launcher. I am currently using the Nova Launcher, with root access can i get rid of Touch Wiz? Someone told me even with Nova in use, TW is still occupying the memory space?
3. What are the other suggestions to have my phone work more smoothly? It lags like nothing i have ever seen. My sister's Galaxy ACE lags lot less than this.

Initially i thought only my S advance lagged, but we have 3 of these in friends & family and all complaining same. And none are "power users"

Thanks in Advance.

Regards,

Ans: Use Titanium Backup to uninstall/freeze the bloatware

2. I hate the touch wiz launcher. I am currently using the Nova Launcher, with root access can i get rid of Touch Wiz? Someone told me even with Nova in use, TW is still occupying the memory space?
Ans: Touchwiz home can be frozen/uninstalled. However I think only the current Home application is loaded in RAM.

3. What are the other suggestions to have my phone work more smoothly? It lags like nothing i have ever seen. My sister's Galaxy ACE lags lot less than this.
Ans: Use Greenify and hibernate all apps running in background. Clear the cache/dalvik and give it a fresh start.

Initially i thought only my S advance lagged, but we have 3 of these in friends & family and all complaining same. And none are "power users"

Thanks in Advance.

Regards,
Answers added in the quote itself. Once rooted, you can play around with various CWM and Custom ROM's to find the right one.
