comment Why do applications update when I have declined the Google Play terms of service?
@Izzy: Yes, I do have the device linked to an account and sync contacts and calendar. However, if this is the case, then why does the device request explicit Google Play permissions at all?

comment Display screen keeps waking up when locked
I had the opposite issue of the quoted text: my Note 3 would activate the screen every few seconds when it was plugged into the charger. Sure enough, bending the MicroUSB tongue upwards resolved the issue. It seems that the tongue was bent too low, and was therefore making intermittent contact with the charger. Every time contact was reestablished, the screen would activate.

@Firelord: Thank you, you have confirmed my suspicion that it is the official Youtube app causing the issue. You might as well turn that comment into an answer, as it answers both the question asked and my underlying concern. Thanks!

@Abhioxic: The thanks goes to you! I opened a meta thread to try to get to you the bounty based on your comment, but the mods could not do that. But you have some terrific answers in other threads here and on Super User, I'm confident that it will balance out.

@Huey: Thank you, the speaker works fine. The phone rings properly, the speakerphone works, and music plays through the speaker as expected.

Thank you. Do you mean the sound that it is intended to play? In that case, as I've mentioned in the OP, the alarm is set to play the default Samsung sound "Morning Flower".

Thanks, sure enough it is more complicated that one would expect! I've asked this related question in the meantime. Thank you!
