comment Samsung S3: avoid automatic screen lock
With some types of 'touch' technology, there could be hardware support to 'wake-up' on any activity. But this would be susceptible to false triggers (wake-up in pocket, etc.) Many of the 1st/2nd generation smart phones did this. And their battery life was v. poor.

comment How to offload browser audio links to background player for continued listening.
Is this a browse 'feature'? Or, part of the 'design document' for Android app. design? It seems odd that both browser and reader app. have the same issue.

comment My Samsung Galaxy tab 2 (7.0) can't see 5ghz networks
Entirely incorrect.. The earliest WiFi 802.11 (now called '802.11a') is generally universal, and often ignored when stating capabilities. However, both WiFi 802.11a and 802.11n can support 2.4GHz and 5GHz, but this is not available unless both the AP (access point) and client (your device) both support 5GHz. The other advantage for the 5GHz spectrum is that it is not overcrowded and is (generally) unaffected by cordless phones and microwave ovens.
