In this article, I will show you how to customize notification pull down bar on Nexus 5.The problem with this smart phone is that you cannot access the important functions such as GPS, Wi-Fi, etc. easily by swiping the screen down. For example, when you swipe down the screen from the top and pull down the notifications on Samsung Galaxy S3, above the notifications you will find buttons to access Wi-Fi, Sound, GPS, Rotation, Smart Stay, Bluetooth, Power Saving, Airplane Mode, Hands-free mode and Screen Mirroring. So it’s become easy to access key functions on Samsung Galaxy S3 simply by swiping down the screen and then pressing on Wi-Fi to turn on/off or swipe down the screen and press on GPS to on/off.
However, in Nexus 5, after swiping the screen down from the top, you will not be able to access the key functions directly as there are no key system buttons present.
