comment Why is this app so slow at downloading?
@Andruseto, thank you for responding. I just looked through the comments and I can't see any mention of slow download speeds (only one mention of a Galaxy S3 user who wasn't sure if Dropsync was syncing at all).

comment How do I get my Samsung S5 to maintain a stable wifi network connection?
Giving the bounty here because this is close to what I ended up doing. Basically, after a little struggle with getting the right firmware and ROMs, I ended up upgrading to an Android 5.0 ROM, and all my wireless worries seem to have gone away.

comment How do I get my Samsung S5 to maintain a stable wifi network connection?
Thank you for responding. I do have Titanium Backup, but it is not currently configured to run any scheduled backups. It is a good idea, though, to do an inventory of apps and see if any of them are impacting wifi. The only downside to this advice is that I have a lot of apps. It would be ideal if there were some way I could narrow the focus.

comment Is it possible to remove the battery percentage on my Samsung S5?
Thank you for responding. Unfortunately, under settings, I don't have a Device, Personalization, or Status bar icons screens anywhere that I can see.

comment Is it possible to remove the battery percentage on my Samsung S5?
@AdiInbar, I don't have a rooted or custom ROM that I know of, but it is possible that my carrier (DoCoMo) modified it in some way.

Thank you for this response, but your description is not clear. What do you mean by "then the display at the top and then display at the bottom once more"?

comment Is it possible to remove the battery percentage on my Samsung S5?
@AdiInbar, on my device, under the Display section, the bottommost item is Increase touch sensitivity. There is no check box for showing the percentage. I have looked in every location suggested in every answer and comment, and the option does not exist on my phone in any of the locations suggested so far.

comment Why can't I install this downloaded APK?
No, the install isn't greyed out. Does it make a difference what APK file it is?

comment Why is my tablet storage almost full?
I just wanted to give it a little time to make sure I hadn't broken anything. But if you're sure it isn't some kind of critical system file, I guess we're good. Thanks for the help!

comment Why is my tablet storage almost full?
This may have worked. Under Storage -> Misc there was a file caled 0 that was 9 GB in size. I took a chance on deleting it, and my tablet seems to be running fine. I hope it wasn't important, but I can't imagine any one file that needs to be 9GB in size.

The exact Android version is 4.4.2, as stated. There is no other software version information that I can see. I checked for updates, but none were available.

Thanks for this response. There is no percentage option in either of these locations.

I've added screenshots to the question. Also, I've already stated the Android version is 4.4.2. I'm not sure what other software version you might be referring to.

comment Is it possible to remove the battery percentage on my Samsung S5?
Thanks for the update. However, I swear my Samsung does not have the "Show battery percentage" checkbox anywhere in the battery settings. It looks exactly like your second image with the graph and the list of applications, but no checkbox for battery percentage.

Thank you for this response. However, in Android 4.4.2 on a Samsung Galaxy S5, there is no checkbox in the location you've described.

Thank you for this response. However, in Android 4.4.2 on a Samsung Galaxy S5, there is no checkbox in the location you've indicated. The screenshots look like maybe they're from an earlier version of Android perhaps.

comment Can I use wifi or Bluetooth to get the same kind of connection to my phone that I can with USB?
Tasker might be a viable option, but I'm actually also unclear on how I can get full file access over Wifi. My phone connects to the Wifi, but it doesn't appear as any kind of available drive on the LAN.

comment Can I use wifi or Bluetooth to get the same kind of connection to my phone that I can with USB?
This sounds like a viable option for file transfer alone, but I realize that my question was not clear enough. I'd like to have the drives show up the same way they do as when connected by USB, so that I can do other things like syncing my music collection.

comment Is it possible to transfer one app from my old phone to my new if my phone is not rooted?
Additional note: On my old phone, I had Titanium Backup routinely send backups to my Dropbox account. The apks are individually compressed into gzip format with the name of the app in the name of the compressed file. I viewed it on my desktop to extract it (Maybe there's a decompress app for the phone). Then, by extracting it into my Dropbox folder, I was able to download and install it from within my Dropbox app on my new phone. In other words, the process was actually very easy.

comment How do I get the maximum video compatibility on my Android device?
Adding MX Player and Moboplayer seems to have helped. MX Player made me download an additional app from Google Play with extra codecs.
