Yes, of course they consume battery. You can go and check in Settings >> Battery how much is the app actually consuming. (It should appear something like shown the following screenshot) I think it might not consume a significant amount like other apps, but just check it and see if you are okay with the amount of battery it is consuming. Also, if all you ...

An app must explicitly support App2SD, or you cannot move it to the card. There are several reasons why an app might not support it: using widgets (both mentioned apps seem to fall into this category. AK Notepad: "Pin notes to your home screen"; Any.DO: "You can even add our widget to your homescreen") running a service As the sdcard would be ...

I'm sorry but your device cannot play high-res videos. Your device should be able to handle videos up to 640*360, this is the resolution of HQ YouTube. Note that there's absolutely no point in watching HD videos on your phone. It has a screen resolution of 240 x 320. Anything above this will be scaled down to fit the screen.

The battery indicator app in the first picture shown appears to be ours so I'd thought I'd respond. :-) The ongoing notification shows because all ongoing notifications in Android currently must display a notification as shown, and because the app must always be in memory to work correctly. You do not need a custom rom to be sure the battery is not being ...

The short answer is: no, Chrome extensions (which are packaged as .crx files as mentioned below) are not supported on Chrome for Android. This is answered in detail by the Chrome Web Store FAQ: Will apps work on Android? If your app is pure HTML, CSS3, and JavaScript and is hosted on your servers there is a good chance that it will work in the ...

Is your USB Debugging mode enabled? Go to Settings->Applications->Development, and check the "USB Debugging" mode. This will help the ADB detect your device. You may refer to the Android Developer Documentation: Using Hardware Devices for further information and details.

Using the following diagram from developer.android.com you can see where it falls in the specs: It's 3 inches diagonally - it falls in the "small" category. It's 133ppi - which is definitely ldpi.

The battery power such app uses is very insignificant if well made. I use such app and it never shows up in the battery usage statistics. That makes me conclude that on a full cycle of 100% to 0%, those apps will not be responsible for even 1%. If the app you use does show up, it's too intensive and you should try another.

The stock messaging app will automatically save a draft message when you tap on the back button while composing the message, but the recipient field has to be filled. Without a recipient it will give a warning that the message will be deleted. There are a lot of good alternatives. I have no experience with them myself (I'm using the stock app) but a lot of ...

If you can enter into Recovery Mode(with Power and Volume Up buttons pressed on startup) try to restore a nandroid backup(if made) or flash a new ROM. If you can't enter into Recovery Mode you need to reflash a stock ROM using ODIN. You need to choose the Right Stock ROM for your region. See XDA-Developers, it also contains a guide to flash these files with ...

I'd check with the operator, and see if they root their phones by default (it's a perfectly valid thing to do, it's just that the big operators tend to be control freaks). If they don't know what you are talking about, worry and ask them for help figuring out what's going on. I'd also go into SuperUser and check it's preferences. Since you don't know how it ...

The Samsung Galaxy Y is a low spec phone and most importantly this can be observed with its display. Some common models in comparison (by resolution, pixel per inch, screen size, price): Galaxy Y: 240x320, 132 PPI, 3.0in, 110EUR Galaxy Ace: 320x480, 165 PPI, 3.5in, 190EUR Galaxy Nexus: 720x1280, 316 PPI, 4.65in, 410EUR The text is blurry because there ...

Here they say, installing Samsung Kies should solve the problem. I haven't tried it yet, but it is available on Samsung's official website for their various phone models.

Go to Settings -> Call settings -> Additional settings and find Call Waiting option (its may be in different address in android 2.3). Enable Call Waiting it if is not already. If it was already enabled, but you never here beeps or receive notifications when another call happens, I think you should check with or consult your operator.

A USB connector has two pins for 5V and two for the data signal. Seems like the first are still connected while the latter are not. Have you tried another cable and restarted your PC? It's also possible that the phone's socket is damaged or has connectiviy problems. It's soldered onto the phone's logic board. Did you once drop it with the cable inserted?

I have had a similar problem to this. In my case, it was caused by the SIM card coming loose. Try the following steps:- Turn the phone off completely Remove the SIM card Reinsert the SIM card Turn the phone on again and then see if you can make a call and use mobile Internet. If it happens repeatedly, you might need to wedge a small piece of paper in ...

As far as I know, SGY has tactile feedback only, but NO haptic feedback. If you require a reference, have a look at this xda thread. But, there are many (almost everything) custom keyboard apps that provide haptics at the Play Store. If you love your built-in keyboard so much and don't want other keyboards, then you have a choice. Just root your phone. Use ...

This error comes normally for two reason. You have a corrupted .zip so you should try re-downloading. You have an unsupported recovery. According to your ROM's requirements, You must have stock kernal. Most of the time while rooting, we flash a different kernal. So you may have to flash your stock kernal back again. And also you must have a CWM ...

As was said - this cannot be done. I am just putting this in an answer form... The reason being is that screenshots work by converting what is on the screen to an image - what is on the screen is pulled directly from the hardware. Obviously, the screen doesn't know what is going to be displayed, a bit like we don't know exactly what is going to happen ...

This functionality isn't available as standard in your default launcher, but the launcher is replaceable. There are lots of alternatives out there, some require a minimum OS version. Unless you've rooted your phone it looks like the maximum OS version you can be on is v2.3.5 (Source: http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_y_s5360-4117.php). So this rules ...

The Galaxy Y GT-S5360 simply does not have backlighting for its capacitive buttons (source 1, source 2) whereas the Ace does - there is nothing you can do.
