Samsung's TouchWiz UI does not allow you to add lockscreen widgets in Kitkat as far as i know. My Galaxy Note 10.1 has the option named "lockscreen widgets" under settings, but its not anything like the stock Android Kitkat concept. You have to install a custom ROM if you want that functionality.

The same thing has happened to me. The fact I also have a Note 3 with exactly the same symptoms makes me believe it is a faulty system update or other service installation/upgrade error.

Looking around, this reddit comment pointed me in the right direction. Using ES Task Manager I found all apps with a name containing "photo", and all were recently updated. Photo Collage Editor was the culprit. So if you don't like random ads forced on you, don't install this app: I'm sure there's plenty of other apps that do collages, and are made ...

I recently had the same issue - I have an old Samsung Galaxy S with Android 2.3.6. I think somehow an app got updated when I was on WiFi, but I didn't know what it was. I noticed a "sync" icon appeared and would not go away. I finally realized I could go to Settings → Applications → Battery Use, and find out that YouTube was the culprit. Then I ...

No matter how many attempts I made in different positions, the fingerprint reader decided, as it often does, that it simply wasn't going to accept my fingerprints. Frustrated, I had no option but to continue trying (and failing) to scan my fingers with ever-increasing timeouts because it wasn't giving ...

I found a possible solution for this, but it requires root: The app "Sequence Unlock" can wake up the screen with a combination of volume up&down and (this is optional) disable the power&home button (only both together unfortunately) It requires the Xposed Framework

There is no information transmitted to them about the group or about past conversations, nor is there any information transmitted in their replies about what they are replying to. As such it is impossible for your phone to tell that ...
