Hot sport stared working. Then I set my common ...

Try to boot into safe mode, and then carefully scan through the app drawer, and active processes in settings and try to find anything that seems suspicious, or without a description. Personally i have never seen any app use these bubbly toast messages, unless modded. It would be easier if it were written in Latin alphabet, and not Chinese hanzi.

From my point of view, the best solution is to root Your phone and install Links2SD or App2SD ROOT PRO form Play Store. If rooting is not avaliable (lost of guarantee) please use App2SD for non-root users. There is a lot of such apps in Play Store. It moves parts of apps to SD card and frees space in internal memory. But if You root Your device, all app ...

The only ways I have found of changing all the icons back to the default is by doing a factory reset. I have spoken with Samsung support and ...

The culprit is probably an app that accidentally doesn't release a critical lock. In my case, it was the Cortana app that was causing the issue. It has a setting for the "Hey Cortana" hotword in the app, which requires that the application grab the microphone lock. It seems like the app, when quit, never released the lock, and so the camera couldn't have ...

I spent one hour with T-Mobile tech level 2 (supervisor) on this same issue. I followed the advice above, enabled Show Hidden Files and, sure enough, all the way at the bottom was a .nomedia file. As soon as I deleted that, the photos and videos started showing up in the Gallery.
