Anyone know how to remove smiley key when you're typing in Hangout?
Sometimes I write a long message and I would rather have an enter key instead of smiley.
I love hangout except this.
Any tips?
Thanks

When gorilla glass cracks, it ain't a half job - the entire screen is a cobweb of cracks. LCD still works, so fone bitz looking into availability and cost of replacement screen. They said second N5 today with same problem!

It fell from a reasonable height, so I suspect that most cases would not have helped my grief ... except, maybe, the i-Blason Armorbox which looks it is built to withstand nuclear war!!!
