It's likely due to the fact that GPS is simply not very well suited for getting precise altitude measurements, and never has been. Certainly not typical consumer-grade chips. Garmin suggests that variances of up to 400 feet are to be expected in their devices, for example. It's just a geometry problem. With that in mind, I would doubt that Android has much ...

It really would be nice to have some startup manager shipping with the system, which lets the user decide what to start and what not. But that's not the case, it works a bit different: Apps with the "run at startup" permission can register a "listener" for the BOOT_COMPLETED broadcast ­– which the system always issues on that event.

It is there, for example, in SlimKat, Spirit ROM, CM based ROMs etc. In my case I can move and size the window, and there is a maximize button available.

Well, I believe I've found it. As per this thread (for example) on the interwebs, it has to do with the Tango app, which I've recently installed. Essentially, since Tango integrates with your phone like a parasite, when a contact is not available to use Tango the (x) icon indicates this in the stock SMS app. Having cross-referenced this against similar ...

The icon that displays a blue circle with diagonal line through it in the Phone app's Log tab appears when the user receives a call and manually rejects it with a swipe when the phone rings. As soon as the user swipes to reject the call, the caller will hear the tone of the phone call change from a ringing signal to a busy signal. The icon that displays a ...

Go to settings > language and input > text to speech output. There you can select one of your installed voices. You can install voices from the Play Store. My personal best and free is IVONA (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ivona.tts&hl=de)

Apps shown in the "on SD card" tab aren't actually on the external SD card, they're just apps you are able to move to the SD card. If they'd been on the SD card, the checkbox next to them would've been checked with a colored check mark.
