I want a Video Recorder App that can record videos even if the app is minimised after turning ON the Video Recording.
Is there such App available for Micromax Canvas Magnus A117 with 4.2.1?

For all those who are suffering from super slow phones after upgrading to Lollipop, good news!

It seems that Lollipop had a rather serious memory leak issue, and that was causing the slow downs that many of you were experiencing.

According to the Google issue tracker, the issue has been fixed and is marked 'for future release'.

Version 5.0.3 anyone?

It was like finding a treasure. One other of my friends had a mobile phone (It resembled a cordless fixed-line phone of those days)
We decided to see if it works. When we opened, we found out that the sim(mini) is small and won't sit in the pocket.

Fortunately at that time, the operators used to give a full sim card (The size of a credit card) with the mini sim cut out (And after removal of the mini sim, it used to become a key chain ).
We got hold of this remaining part, put the mini sim and put it in the phone and Voila! it worked. It was a happy experience for all.

Last week I got a micro sim for my wife's new phone and this time the micro sim had a cut out inside the sim. We have kept it as an adaptor whenever she needs to use a phone having mini sim slot

In other news, can the Xiaomi skeptics on this thread take a break?

In September, Taiwan's government began performing independent tests on Xiaomi phones after media reports said that some models automatically send user data back to the firm's servers in mainland China.
The probe was then widened to include local and foreign handsets. The NCC report said handsets made by local firms HTC Corp, Asustek Computer Inc, Far EasTone Telecommunications Co Ltd, Taiwan Mobile Co Ltd and US-based InFocus Corp, whose handsets are made by Taiwan's Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd, were also cleared of breaching the data protection laws. — Reuters

Given finacial + technical + management resources of Xiaomi, it can be assumed that it will not have a loose supply chain where someone inject unauthorized software.

On the other hand, more devices have been found to be shipped with Malware. That includes couple of Gionee devices.

BHP'ian "mroptimist" claimed it first and am sharing the same with him.

@extreme_torque, @saurabhkum, prakhar1998 - You were late by few mins. Will share the invites in the coming weeks as i am due to get 2-3 more invites as part of my OPO purchase.

Another issue with Nexus 7 and lollipop is that exchange server seems to be broken with the new Gmail.

I am thinking of going back to Kit kat because if i cannot access my work mail, it doesnt make sense to use the phone for work.

Guys, I have an invite to share. Please PM me if you want one. I just need to be sure that the person will claim and buy the device. Also the invite received after buying it should be shared with another fellow member on this forum.
