comment Is there a PDF reader that zooms to omit left+right (vertical) margins
If manual zoom is acceptable: I'm using Moon+ Reader (the paid pro version has PDF support). If I adjust the display accordingly (e.g. zoom in to cut of the borders), it sticks to that even on paging. Trouble is only with left and right pages having different border width, which then would shift the page left/right – as all Moon+ does is "sticking to the display position"...

comment External devices interfering with GPS
Shouldn't do so for GPS (AFAIK GPS always uses its own antenna), but I'm not sure whether some software-bug could trigger exactly that. Afraid not much we can do; as indicated, I'd confront Samsung with that. I'd consider it a serious limitation they have to act on, at least when the device is under warranty, and should either repair or replace the device at no cost for you.

Yupp, thought so. When in doubt, always make sure to check with my app-lists :) Picked that one from here

comment How can I NOT Save Contacts to Google?
Pointer: Using MyLocalAccount should make that independent from the front-end used (this app installs a "local contact provider"). Have not tested it myself, though.

comment Is it possible to install lollipop on note 4/ not on carrier
Welcome to Android Enthusiasts! Please take a look at How do I update Android on my device?. And besides: if your device came "from a carrier", you'd probably still using JellyBean instead of Kitkat (a carrier in between again slows down the update process).

comment How to Restore Deleted / Formatted Files on HD Micro SD Card with free and full version apps
As @Firelord wrote, app recommendations are off-topic here. You could edit your post asking for "how to recover those files", which would make it on-topic – most likely to be closed as duplicate shortly thereafter. Please have a look at our fine data-recovery tag-wiki, which should get you started quickly with its first-aid details.

comment Get the list of applications using a sensor in android
On a per-app basis this could be done parsing the .apk files with aapt for android.hardware.sensor.* features (see: Developer Guide). Not sure whether that could be done "for all apps installed on the device" (without pulling all .apk files first), but for that I'd check with the adb shell dumpsys packages command.

comment How do i stop characters being replaced with images?
What kind of input are you talking about? "i have it carefully arranged that the text is a very specific shade of green" suggests something other than "standard user input".

Full ack with @Firelord – this is OT here. SR indeed is the correct place (but make sure to read their question quality guidelines before posting there). You might also wish to check my list of PDF apps ;)

For the risks involved, see e.g. our rooting tag-wiki. You might also wish to take a look at our custom-roms tag-wiki and, more specifically, the cyanogenmod tag-wiki.

comment Disable “Enjoy your app!” popup
Apart from agreeing with you that this is a correct answer, @RyanConrad (+1 given) – I agree with the OP that this should be a decision left to the user. Give it a couple of "do you really want..." warning screens is OK, but forcing me to reveal details I don't want to give is blackmail. Not that "how to change the policy" is something for Android.SE – but I'd love to hear whether there's another way, and be it with "root powers". Same issue is bugging me, and like the OP, I don't want to give more details (but unlike him, no important things in my G-Account ;)
