P5110 is the Galaxy Tab 2 while P7510 is the original. The difference is that the newer ships with ICS and has a different SoC along with a slightly larger battery, while it is a lightly ticker. The P7510 came out almost a year ago. If you want future software upgrades the P5110 is a safer bet. See that datasheets for more info.

Saw this on another site: Ryan answered 4 weeks ago I was having the same issue after I updated my Galaxy S3 to Android 4.3. I think I just fixed it. Here's what I did: From the home screen, click the Apps icon Open the "Downloads" app In my case the files that kept showing up in the notification pull down were in the Other Downloads tab Click the ...

It's Samsung software, built into the system in certain Samsung phones. Like the Dropbox app, it's a service to automatically upload photos you take on your phone; it connects to your "Samsung account" if you create one. It also integrates with Dropbox to sync photos to the device Gallery; if you have "Camera upload" turned on in Dropbox as well, this ...

You won't find a good "iTunes for Android" for your desktop computer, because Android was designed from the start to eliminate that dependency on a desktop computer. An iPhone uses a protocol that only iTunes understands, so iTunes is the only way to get music and photos onto it (Originally, you had to install apps through iTunes too: there was no App Store ...

You probably have to use ODIN. I've done it myself, and it worked for me. I used it to root my phone (SGS2). I've postponed it for months, afraid it would brick my phone, but it didn't. Make a backup of all important data. Find a good manual on Youtube, XDA-developers or via Google. Compare them, and see what they say. Be prepared that it can go wrong. ...

If it's a wall charger with plugs that match your outlets, the input range should be covered. Normal USB chargers are 5 V at up to 1.8 mA. The voltage is the main concern -- standard USB ports for PCs only go up to 900 mA, which is why they charge slower. You can see the USB power specs on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usb#Power (In sum, any ...

Samsung's OTA updates are carrier-based, as usual. Kies updates are usually regional, but not particularly restricted; you can usually select a different region when installing Kies and get updates from there. Kies updates are up to Samsung, though they would probably work with carriers on it to ensure it works well and whatnot. OTA updates are controlled ...

I'm going to presume this was a side-loaded app with a potential malware payload, since you mention you cannot find it on Google Play Store. First step is to see if the application can be prevented from uninstall because it has set itself up as a Device Administrator, sort of a protected app. See Settings>Security>Device Administrators, and deactivate both ...

mA is not the same as mAh. The former is a current rating, and the latter is the capacity of the battery. 1000 mAh means the battery can supply a current of 1000 mA (at its rated voltage) for 1 hour, or equivalently, a current of 500 mA for 2 hours, etc. It tells you how much energy the battery can hold. The number in mA printed on the phone tells you how ...

Is there something wrong with Cyanogenmod? What you want is the stock version of android Samsung put on the phone, there is no revert as it was deleted when you put cyanogen. As you dont seem to have a copy I would go to Samsung support site or you will have to trust another source on the net and download it there. This would be another great community ...

It looks like a non-trivial issue, I'm afraid. The logcat output you provided didn't actually give the cause of the issue. May I suggest that in the meantime you use another launcher? Nova Launcher and Apex Launcher are particularly good replacements for you Note 2, or if you want to get fancy then TSF shell is fun.

Is it face unlock you are asking about? If so, there is a handy guide here. It requires your phone to be rooted and have ClockworkMod Recovery installed. Here are the installation instructions from the link: Installation Instructions Before you proceed with setting up Face Unlock on your Galaxy S2, make sure that your phone: is rooted, has ...

You would need to use an app like SwiftKey Keyboard or SlideIt. Edit #1: Take a look @Izzy's comment. It is also possible.

Honeycomb was actually meant for devices with large screens like tablets etc.., There is no Official update for S5300. So you'll have to root your phone and install a custom ROM(such as CyanogenMod) on your phone. Keep in mind that rooting your phone will void your phone of any warranty. Also beware that any error made while flashing ROM could brick your ...

The Samsung ROM doesn't have the stock AOSP dialer and contacts app. It has Touchwiz themed dialer and contacts app. This is one of the most glitchy and slowest of dialer apps out there. Try the Swipe Dialer if you care to. It has good reviews and seems to be working fine across the board. Another option will be to port AOSP dialer as in Cyanogenmod. This ...

As well as getting access to Samsung's sync and backup service, creating a Samsung account also gets you access to Samsung's app store. It's not as extensive as the main Play Store, but it has a good selection of apps. Whether you think that's a "real benefit" or not is entirely up to you.

Ugh, that's 4 questions in one. Our site works best with one question per post; but let me try: How to install via CWM (custom recovery)? usually, it's "install update.zip from SDCard" when the deal is to "install something via recovery". By default, there should be an update.zip file in the root of the SDCard, which you then navigate to and select. Hint: ...

No, you can't update it from Google Play. It would be like buying your phone from Carphone Warehouse and then expecting Phones4u to help you out with a problem just because they sell the same phone. Or buying a music download in Google Play and expecting to be able to download it from iTunes. You've paid Samsung for the app, not Google. If you uninstall it ...

My best guess would be an issue that is causing part of the render process of slide lock to take place in landscape mode. I have no idea why that would happen although I have had some strange screen rotation issues with my nexus 7 and a factory reset did indeed fix it. But since you don't want to turn to that here are some suggestions: -Try locking ...

I'm O2 UK as well, and at 4.3, my phone is 'up to date'. This article suggests we'll be getting Kitkat, but not quite yet. If you look at comparable previous releases from Samsung, I think we've still got months yet.

There's an important distinction to be made: Android in its stock form, and Samsung's version of Android, with the Touchwiz framework. The Touchwiz functionality for the eyeball recognition works with only with apps 'native' to Samsungs Touchwiz version of Android. Apps like Samsung SMS, Samsung Internet, Samsung Gallery etc. Air Gestures can be ported ...

You can delete the photos via the Google+ app or web interface. From the left-hand menu, click Photos. If you haven't turned on auto-upload and don't want to, click Not now to get rid of the prompts. Then, if you're in the app, open the menu that slides in from the left again, and choose Albums from the menu; or in the web interface, click More on the top, ...

aha, found it: under apps -> settings -> connections, I can turn overall use of Wi-Fi on or off. Then if I select "More networks", I get this screen: and I can turn on or off "Wi-Fi Calling". Tmobile has a note about it here: http://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-5864

Try changing the channel that the wireless is hosted on. I've had this recently with two different devices (one android) where my wireless did not appear in list of available SSID's. In both cases it was in the 5 GHz spectrum and moving my N to a different channel fixed the problem. Apparently certain driver don't implement the full spectrum properly.

As a programmer I find this interesting. Password fields can be (and usually are) treated differently than normal text boxes. Given that Android is open source I guess it's possible that Samsung has at least attempted to include code that prevents a password field from passing information typed in it back to the keyboard application, but like others have ...

You could try SD Maid, and see if it can find the file. It has a feature that lets you search for the BIGGEST files. If that file was cached somewhere before it was put into the correct folder, chances are SD Maid might be able to find it. I can't remember though if you need the Pro version to use the feature, but do check it out.

Is SPR-L720VPUEMJA-20131030154609.zip stock ROM? If yes, you can use the Odin tool to flash that ROM. I assume have already installed Samsung Kies (so phone drivers are installed). With this done, open Odin (don't change any settings). Load L720VPUEMJA_L720SPTEMJA_L720VPUEMJA_HOME.tar.md5 into the PDA section into the ROM. Put your phone into Download Mode ...

According to the official KNOX website, Samsung KNOX is tightly integrated into the operating system. It uses hardware support to verify the bootloader integrity, a custom bootloader to verify the OS integrity, and a custom kernel at runtime. It changes the layout of the device's filesystem to add separate encrypted storage for the business-related files. It ...
