All that you'd be saving is that the GPU wouldn't have to do as much work to shade pixels (i.e. determine the colour of each individual pixel) - but that would come at the ...

This icon seems to be some "user is active" icon that notifies you when the device captured you looking at the phone, but not actively using it.

It will prevent the display from becoming dark/locking the device so you can read your article, book etc. without tapping on the ...

Why is this? It's faulty. What can I do about it? Return it to the vendor for repair or replacement. Nobody should expect this kind of problem with a new phone. It's not on you to fix it.

Short answer: You can, but you shouldn't. Install a custom ROM instead. Long answer: Some features in your stock ROM may be dependant on that ROM's Settings app, because it might contain some preferences that affect them. Your Settings app may be missing some Lollipop settings simply because the ROM doesn't support them. You can try to install the AOSP ...

As the LG 47LM6200 is DLNA compatible (Movie/Photo/Music), all you need for that is a DLNA server on your Android device. On my website you can find a list of apps for that: check with DLNA / uPnP Server and Clients. To make it easier for you, let me pick the most promising candidate: BubbleUPnP is both, DLNA server and client – which means you can use it ...

You may choose to show or not all images from Drive to Google Photo, not individual one. There's a Google Drive setting in Photo for that.

I solved this by booting into Download Mode (with the phone off, hold Vol+ while plugging in USB to computer). There were some files that needed to be downloaded, including the LG Flash Tool, which was used to flash the stock ROM to the phone. After flashing, the phone was in its original pre-activated state but at least it functioned! Unbrick method for ...

After a lot of searching, I've found my own answer.

Time for the "standard-reply": tasker. I will not go so far as to give you a complete "profile" (as I don't use that exact combination), but at least a raw idea (as for general info on what Tasker is, please see its tag-wiki).
