It looks like a GPS icon from what you've described. You can check the official list of icons for a Samsung device to be sure.

I hava a Samsung S5. Before I charged my phone once per 24 or 48 hours and since a few days suddently the battery lasted only 4 to 8 hours. After several test I discovered the cause was a few corrupt images. I deleted the corrupt images and the problem was solved. I used this app to find the corrupt images.

Nope. You will have to reinstall the app to use the files again. They're "encrypted" in a way such that only the Vault app can access them.

There are many possible causes unfortunately. I had a seemingly impossible to find issue on my S5, even using ultra power save. I found it to be OpenVPN - once installed and used once, the drain started even when it wasn't in use and even after a restart of the phone. Installing OpenVPN and restarting puts battery use back to normal.

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. This way they get ...

Yes you will have giving consent to post "things" to Facebook without seeing or approving them. I suggest getting a 3rd party app to help. SystemPanel App, a full feature task manager, or App Detective, find every detail about an app. The first is a paid app, but there is a free version available. Between these 2 apps you will be able find the culprit, ...

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 ...

I had the same problem with various newer Samsung mobile devices. I restarted my device, went to settings after booting back up, turned off my wireless on the device, then turned it back on. Was able to connect after keying in the security password. Don't know if this helps. I monkeyed around with this for about an hour. before I got it to work.

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 ...

I'm using the Samsung keyboard on my S3. I can tap the "123 Sym" key to reveal the symbols keyboard. Then, tap the "1/2" key to reveal the second page of the symbols keyboard. You should find what you want there. The confusion may result from the "1/2" key. It's not intuitive that there's a second page of symbols under that key.

Try downloading the Android Wear app. Open it up and see if it says Emulator Connecting in the top left. If it does, go to the menu and select Disconnect Emulator and then Forget Emulator. It worked for me. I was getting the same notification.

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 might be a power button issue. when you take the battery out, and put it back in does the phone automatically turn on by itself? or do you have to press the power button to do that? You should turn it back on with the power button, if it turns back on automatically then it means your power button has gotten stuck. What I did was hold it and kept pressing ...

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.

I've got the same phone running android 4.4.2. My phone does not speak email messages. It only speaks sms text, caller id info, and two other notifications. If you consult the help manual on the phone, the usage is a little clearer.

This should work: Go to Settings > Language and Input. Click the settings icon on the Samsung keyboard, go to Advanced and uncheck Vibration.

OK, I figured out, those icons do not correspond to which applications are running, but rather, to those applications which have awaiting new information for the user. When the user drags the notification panel from the top of the screen, those same icons appear next to the name of the application sending the notification and the message posted by such ...

If your sim card is locked then you can just remove it and put another one in. If the phone itself is locked, you can do a factory-reset by using the recovery, hold power, home, volume-up until you get to the recovery screen and choose the factory reset option.

It sounds like your phone is blocked. You should try to return it if possible. If the IMEI is missing then it is very likely there is a serious problem with the radio or that it is simply blocked. You can't fix this by flashing a different ROM.

I have been using a Note 3 on AT&T for about four months now and I have so far managed to avoid unwanted firmware updates without rooting. I am still running Android 4.3. I don't want kitkat. It doesn't remember wifi passwords. I have also heard of issues with bluetooth functionality and sd card access limitations. Also, battery life seems to be ...

This happened to me. I tried to re-flash its firmware then finally it just turned off and cannot power on again. The technician also gave up and said the motherboard is beyond repair. I recall that I overused it and maybe my very cold room generated some moist inside the phone short-circuiting the motherboard.

According to AndroidPolice is actually caused by a bug in Chrome Beta that showed up on certain custom ROMS. The recent update (v39.0.2171.90) contains a fix for this issue. It's likely that the next update for non beta Chrome will include a fix for this too.

Well, I have tried all these things I could find on the web and my Win 7 professional PC would not recognize my Galaxy S 3....I then realized my new computer has nothing but USB 3.0 ports so I decided to try to use an old USB hub I have. I plugged it into the computer and a driver for it was successfully installed. I then plugged my Galaxy S3 into the USB ...

I, too, own a Galaxy S3. Thankfully, I've never had to restore the calendar app. But, if I did have to, I'd try a recovery tool to restore the stock calendar before falling back to another app.

This is happening in any custom ROM that supports floating windows. 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. It resizes the window with pinch to zoom automatically rendering it almost unusable. This is an app issue ultimately, but it is specific ...
