comment Samsung Galaxy Core Prime non responsive touch screen and back button for a while
Try taking that off for a few days. There were cases those "boxes" caused strange behavior.

comment Photos in the Camera folder in the Gallery were deleted automatically in my Android phone
Please let's continue that in chat!!! // And no, that button/link didn't yet pop up to create a private room (no idea why). But we 3 know what's it about, so why not meeting in the general room?

comment How to refelct earlier Moto G settings?
No idea about that. Tim: could you provide a screenshot of what you're getting currently (and want to "get rid of")?

comment Photos in the Camera folder in the Gallery were deleted automatically in my Android phone
@SuperThomasLab .nomedia files don't create themselves overnight, so that's pretty much unlikely – so not "go wild" with an idea before having clarified that (which is what comments are for; your answer basically is no answer here ;) // Apart from that: May I suggest the 3 of us meet in chat? Because that's what comments are not for #D

Can you check with a file explorer whether the photos exist somewhere else then in WA? They are usually stored below /sdcard/DCIM. It could be that just your media-scanner had a hick-up. If you can confirm the files are there, we can take a look into that.

comment adb backup command on non-rooted device creates an empty backup file?
Might be – still makes things a bit more complicated :) Just saying, no criticizing intended!

I doubt that any system function would trigger such an "automatic deletion": if there's "no space left", that would at maximum trigger an error message, so it must be something else. If you're lucky, you might still find a hint in the logs.

comment adb backup command on non-rooted device creates an empty backup file?
Good to have this, so thanks for sharing – but it's a work-around at best (not a "solution"). Sometimes one needs to have the backups without password encryption (e.g. to convert the .ab file to a .tar for investigation).

comment Phone storage low on my LG-L38C
Thanks, @SuperThomasLab (just approved that edit with a minor correction, so it becomes visible immediately). Still, Darla has to check with the tag-wiki first (standard issue) – and we don't know how that storage is divided (except for the SD card). I doubt the 763MB available refer to internal storage, as that shouldn't trigger the insufficient-memory error then.

comment Google Play Services update error
OK. Check again when your issue happens the next time. I bet it then already has updated itself – so your issue would be "how to get rid of those useless notifications". Please verify, and then edit your question accordingly (also include the Android version running on your device then).

comment Google Play Services update error
Yes, that's what I meant. Didn't check for play services there yet as I had no need, but neither did I get any update notifications for it: that app just updates itself without asking me – which is why I suggested checking the version numbers (in Settings › Apps › All).

comment Google Play Services update error
I see this quite often. In my case, it always helped to 1) switch back to the list of your apps, then 2) tap the app to update again (in very rare cases, repeat 1+2 again). This usually makes the "Open" button turn into "Update". Does that work for you? On the other hand, if just this app is affected: it usually auto-updates itself, so it might be you're just not fast enough :) Check which version is installed now, and then check again after the next update pops in (updates are quite frequent here).

comment Android showing battery at 100% even when left for straight 10 hours in night
@AndrewT. 100% after 10h on battery is pretty unlikely, even for a "naked" system (no user-apps installed, not initiated at all) running in airplane mode -- especially when taking a look at the device specs: a 1,600mAh battery makes me very much doubt that, unless the device is switched off altogether ;)
