    Titanium is nice. But I don't have any apps I like older versions of. Tapatalk would be the only one and I don't have the older version anymore.

    Yeah, titanium isn't necessary if you're not changing things anyway. But it is nice to have backups. Viper4android is pretty much the only reason I still use my G2, because the Moto X 2013 I'm using doesn't have root available.

    And see, the biggest reasons I rooted back in the day were to take screenshots and overclock my CPU. Not necessary anymore. Haha

    Overclocking, such a thing of the past lol. I couldn't even try to overclock my G2 or the kernel would go into the software equivalent of an emotional breakdown, throwing tantrums and what not.

    I'd like root for titanium and adblocker. But that was on a VZW bloat phone. This will be pure android.

    This reminded me of my boss last week. We were discussing multi tasking and not having enough time in the day to get things done when he pulls out his new iPhone 6 Plus (Knowing I'm an Android fan) and said, "well, I can simply do this" and proceeded to tap the microphone in this note taking app, spoke a message which showed up on the screen, then showed me his screen and said "how cool is that"? LOL!
    I didn't even bother, but instead acted like it was coolest thing since sliced bread. (While secretly chuckling inside) ahhhh, a reminder of the old Android vs Apple days. Just not worth the trouble anymore.

    Are you guys going to use tap & go to set your 6P up like your current phone, or start fresh?

    I keep thinking about it & I can't decide. Part of me thinks, use it & be set to go quick. The other part kinda likes setting up a new device & I'm not sure how my Samsung settings will transfer to a nexus anyway.

    The last time I did an fdr on my nexus 7, I used tap & go to set it up with the apps on my phone & it was pretty slick, though I have several apps on my phone that I'd never use on my tablet.

    Good question, I may want to start fresh, but my laziness and excitement to just start using the device might override that lol.

    Fresh start. I don't want my new precious to catch something from my old phone.
