If you have the Note3 or S4, that might be getting KitKat soon, so you can activate listening simply by saying "Ok, Google"

comment Enterprise (802.1x) WiFi causing excessive battery drain?
Updated question with link to screenshots. No apps/nothing special that jumps to mind - possibly upgraded SwiftKey around that timeframe. Puzzling thing is whatever it is, it is definitely only affecting Enterprise/802.1x WiFi (and only in the recent few weeks - so likely not ROM)

comment Enterprise (802.1x) WiFi causing excessive battery drain?
Details added. Not convinced if it has to do with ROM/phone, since I was running this configuration for over a month, and battery draining problem is only from the past week or so.

comment Is it “safe” to provide users with the apk file?
Yes, I wasn't quite sure where to ask the question, here or stackoverflow. But since there was no code, and is very Android specific decided to ask here :)

comment HTC Desire (Android 2.2) connects then disconnects to wifi
Do you have an access control list set up on your router? if so, remember to add the phone's MAC address.

comment How do I lock my HTC whenever I want?
The two timeouts work separately - updated the answer with examples to make it clearer.

comment My HTC Desire HD has been stolen. What data can still be accessed by the thief?
Since it is a Desire HD you should have "HTC Sense", if you log in via the web, I believe you can wipe data from the phone? As for what data (taking a stab here)... assuming they've gotten access, I guess any of the apps/sites you have already logged in. Also I assume anything on the SD Card is accessible (they can insert it into a computer and read the contents of the card)

comment Apps' update status in Market app not always reliable?
I've never experienced this myself, but I do think Google has some sync problems with the Market. When I push an update for my app, I can generally open the Market on my phone in ~10min and will see the update. But it can take hours for the info (new description, version number etc) to appear

comment Unlock problem with HTC Desire
Just to clarify: When you first boot up, everything works ok (except for widgets not displaying). But when the phone locks (screen blacks out) when you try to unlock the screen doesn't turn back on? Recent problem? or your phone has always been like this?

comment What info does Google backup?
Ah yes, that seems about right (flashed my phone with custom ROM so do expect some discrepancies). Though I do really wish they had a list somewhere! Re the market mylibrary... that list doesn't correctly reflect what I have installed on my phone :(

what were you downloading? and when you say 'disconnected' do you mean the download was interrupted?

comment Wheel behaviour for HTC Desire (setting alarm)
Ah yes, I think you are correct! I must've been adding a new calendar event and not setting my alarm. Thanks for pointing it out :) (though I do wish this "smart scroll" behaviour was everywhere when setting time)

comment What are some of the effects of flashing my HTC Desire with cyanogenmod?
Just an update for #2. Flashing insertcoin rom (htc sense rom) kept my original keyboard with the new gingerbread goodies. Flashing cyanogenmod (aosp rom) meant my keyboard was lost - there was no quick/easy way to get it back.

comment SD card unmounted when HTC Desire is being charged (even with a “wall charger”)
hm, odd... another stab in the dark. Turn phone off, plug in to charge. Turn phone back on... does the SD card still get unmounted?

comment What to do with 'duplicate' apps? (ie. HTC version and 'vanilla' version)
so just to clarify, so it is still possible for some HTC apps to work even after removing the htc sense versions and leaving the 'normal' versions of the apps?

comment HTC Desire HD vibrating constantly
have you tried pressing the volume up/down rocker? I find with my HTC Desire, every so often I accidentally trigger the 'vibrate' profile via the volume rocker and it keeps vibrating (I think my case might be causing the rocker to be 'stuck'?). Though your problem does sound like a hardware issue, so this might not be the solution you're after, but if the volume rocker can stop it vibrating will be easier than turning the phone off/on.

comment Opening sms thread goes into incorrect thread
Reading about the "wrong recipient" bug makes me more worried... wouldn't like messages being 'randomly' sent to an unintended recipient :O Guess i'll just have to wait for the update/fix. Thanks for the info :)

comment Scrolling behaviour for apps (in general)
Thanks for the link - it did occur to me that it might be a bug, but was secretly hoping it was a feature. Guess I'll have to try and find a way to reliably reproduce this 'buggy feature' :)

comment Do I need to reboot my HTC Desire periodically?
interesting, I haven't actually had my phone reboot itself unexpectedly while using an app. The only times it's rebooted itself was when updating an app from the market (the same app btw)... and I'm thinking that might be just because that app required a force restart?

comment Difference between Super LCD screen of Nexus S and Super AMOLED screen of Samsung Galaxy S — Which is better?
I've never had the chance to compare actual, physical phones with LCD/AMOLED/Super AMOLED screens - only been able to get information from reviews/articles. Updated my answer with a bit more information regarding the screens and glare.
