Does your credit card have an NFC chip? The phone can read and write NFC data. It is probably activating Android beam or S Beam.

I guess you are using stock Samsung firmware. If so, probably you enabled Samsung's "power saving mode". Go to "power saving mode" settings and unchecked "CPU power saving" options.

I ended up flashing the Stock ROM (using sammobile.com) back again and using the Stock Recovery to do a factory reset as the Team Win Recovery format didn't do anything. That did the trick, but of course all data is gone too. Oh well.

on the Play Store there are several utilities to clean Phone and speed up processes. My favourite is this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cleanmaster.mguard Your excessive use of system RAM is (maybe) due to some persistently active process on your phone. Follow this guide to see yours (and maybe evaulate a uninstallation of some): ...

have you tried to wipe your data/cache + dalvik? For my experience, sometimes the black-screen is due to a bad-flashing procedure (not your fault) when something goes wrong. If you did not tried yet, try and let me know! Regards, Luca

I've been trying out KeyGuard Tool++, which is supposed to perform this function. You can set it so that if you are within range of a particular WiFi SSID, the screen lock will not kick in. There are also options to look for specific BlueTooth devices or USB connections to determine whether the key guard kicks in. However, it seems to not be quite ...

Sense is made by HTC for HTC so no you can't put it on other phones. That said, I recently read an article that Blinkfeed and some of their other cooler closed source apps are going to be made available on the play store for other devices later this year. Looks like Blinkfeed specifically is already avaialable. Hope this helps. ...

What I do is take the battery out, wait 15 minutes, and then put it back in.

AFAIK, Nexus 5 does not have a FM radio (just checked the specs at GSMArena.com). So, you cannot listen to your local FM broadcast and should rely only on online radio stations.

seems like your contacts have been washed away from your phone after installing an update. This case normally occurs when contacts have gone away. restoring contacts or creating new ones will be your solution and your phone numbers will convert to names back again.

your sim card needs to be cleaned, also your sim card reader should be cleaned/serviced. Your connection to phone is not completely ok just because of either your sim card is too old and have been used a lot of times in different phones, thus it needs to replaced in this case. if not, then try solution number 1.

It does look like a stuck power button. (as ridiculous as it may sound) The behaviour in your phone is exactly as it is when I press and hold on my power button for an extended period. By right, the device should not turn on by itself when the battery is inserted. It should remain turned off - only a hardware switch can turn it on. As your phone turns on ...

Do you have any image filters/effects/night mode enabled? Try disabling them all?

install kies and connect your phone with usb cable. Then go to backup/restore and you can easily backup your important data from there.

Can you enter into recovery of download mode? As your phone is booting up, (right after the phone vibrates), press and hold on Volume Up and Home to enter recovery. Volume Down and Home to enter Download. If you can enter either of these, there may still be some hope by flashing back your stock Verizon rom through Odin. Otherwise, you will need to send ...

It shouldn't be possible for an app to prevent all apps from using the vibrator. This definitely points to an error in the custom ROM.

I want to know if 4.1 is set-up to use push notifications efficiently with regards to battery drain Well the short answer is Yes, but this sounds like a misguided question. Push notifications have been around for a lot longer than 4.1 and to my knowledge there aren't any major "efficiencies" that were added to the Android OS after 4.1 to improve ...

Push notifications are designed to be the solution to battery draining apps that constantly monitor for data that has changed locally or on a server. Because of this they are very battery efficient. My phone typically will get 20 notifications in a few hours with less than 1% total battery use. If your having huge battery drain problems, your phone is ...

I replaced the power button, and it solved the problem.

And to continue what Dan wrote, if you mean for the stock Android or Samasung browser (it's not the same app, but it's in the same place), it's what @Dan Hulme answer. but if the browser is chrome press on the 3 dots > "History" > "Clear Browsing Data.." > pick "Clear the cache", Here is a picture: Hope it's been Helpful!

Clear the browser by hitting the settings on your phone. Navigate to privacy settings Hit clear cache.

Google Search, aka Google Now can search installed apps on your Android device. Yes, it is super-slow, especially on older phones, but it includes among other things the 'Search Phone/Tablet' option. I was looking for a cleaner and faster alternative that does not search everything, including the web, but finally ended up using it nonetheless, because all ...

You Need to fully drain you devices battery until it turns off by itself at then plug it in the outlet and leave it overnight. Explanation: Battery needs to be calibrated especially if you are not charging the battery to a full 100%. Tips: Charge your battery to 100% at least a week :) Ample Power Company suggests: Conditioning Batteries ...

That's really not normal. The phone should behave completely normally right up to the point it turns itself off. Since it's still under warranty, you should make a warranty claim. Trying to fix it yourself (or taking it to someone else to fix) will void the warranty, and might not fix the problem, which would leave you worse off than you started. From what ...

If you go to Settings >> Sound then make sure 'Touch Sounds' (it might be called something similar) is not ticked, that should solve the problem

I went around in circles with this by trying open and WPA security but nothing worked. The phone was not even listed on the router's device list. The MAC address filter was the problem. I fixed the issue by adding the phones mac address to the routers "white list" and now everything works well. Check you router mac filters or turn them off.

You can also download the app "wifi key recovery" which is a lot easier.

The contacts themselves are synced to your phone's internal memory, so they do take up space. The contacts are then updated every time the phone syncs with the server. If they were only in the cloud you wouldn't be able to access them if you happen to lose the network connection, and contact lookup would be noticeably slower. Also, some mobile network ...

This is normal when someone else is calling right at the moment you do this call. I think it's called "call waiting", but the feature is usually non-free.

Check the settings for your dialer app. Most dialers have some kind of "call in progress" beep that goes off every minute or so if the option is enabled.

Same happened to me. I just reinstalled the google calendar app and all my entries returned on my Samsung calendar. I think you just need to have the app installed to make it all work properly; I've never actually used the google calendar app which is why I uninstalled it. Hope it works for you too.

It is saved in /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf file. You can open it with any text editor. If you have Terminal Emulator you can also do this: cat /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf
