This is not a direct solution, but a workaround. You could forward the message (but not send it); this is a feature the stock Messaging app supports. When you forward a message, it puts that message into edit mode, as if you were sending a new message. From here, you can select the text that you want to copy.

If you are not rooted then Shywim's answer is correct. However, if you have rooted your device you can install the Xposed framework. This allows you to install modules that tweak various aspects of Android. The module GravityBox (KK) for kitkat and (JB) for Jelly Bean, which you can install via the Xposed Installer has an option "Allow Any Widget" for ...

The only way to add more widget is to install an application that allow their widgets to be used on the lockscreen. Developers need to specify if their widgets can be used on the launcher, the lockscreen or both. So, if a widget is available on the launcher but not on the lockscreen, I'm afraid that you can't use it on the lockscreen. (But you could mail ...

When you have any keyboard open to enter text into an app, you should see a keyboard icon among the notifications. Click this to open the input method chooser, then select AnySoftKeyboard from the list. The checkboxes in the Language & keyboard settings only control which keyboards appear in this list.

Yes, software tweaks have a massive effect on image quality, and the htc sense version was optimised for you sensor, whereas the cm app wasn't, this is the difference between a well optimised app written to play to the strengths of a specific platform, and a general app written to give a moderately good experience on average. This same thing can be applied ...

I have (or rather had, until a few minutes ago) a Desire C, with SD card, but photos storing on internal Memory. Unfortunatly, the previous suggestion is no option in Desire C, as there is no "storage" option in the camera app. The phone should, but does apparantly not always, default to storing pictures on the SD card. What I did to try and solve this ...

From HTC Rezound (Verizon Wireless)'s FAQ (I know it's a different device, but it's same for most HTC phones), What is Polaris Office? Polaris Office comes pre-loaded on the phone and can be used to open and view office documents (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) received in email as attachments or stored on the SD Card. [...] (Emphasis mine) In other words, it's ...

I think it shoud be in your lockscreen settings and there should be an option to disable or enable status bar on lockscreen. My phone has it I think yours should have too. Its a privacy keeping feature.

Ok after struggling for about a week, I found that selecting "Show Large Dial pad" from the menu in the phone app showed the list making it possible to call others as well. I now need to find how I can see more than two at a time in the background list and shall update this answer once I find.

Sense is made by HTC for HTC so no you can't put it on other phones. That said, I recently read an article that Blinkfeed and some of their other cooler closed source apps are going to be made available on the play store for other devices later this year. Looks like Blinkfeed specifically is already avaialable. Hope this helps. https://play.google.com/...

Try installing a new launcher app (it really doesn't matter if you want it or not, you'll only need it for a few seconds) from the Play Store. Once it's installed, press the home button and Android should prompt you to choose a home app. Choose the one you want, select "Always", and then you can uninstall the launcher app you just installed.

With Textra SMS you can copy selected text

I copy entire message and paste it as a reply. And from there I copy what I need. Mostly passwords. Then I remove rest of the text so it won't stay as a draft.

You can use a third-party launcher app like Nova Launcher. Nova will let you scroll vertically or horizontally via Nova Settings > Drawer > Drawer Style.

In some cases AppBrain does not check app compatibility restrictions correctly when deciding to offer the update. E.g., I have Android 4.0.4 (CM9) with the Google Search app version 1.4.1.299849 installed as a system app (included in gapps-ics-20120429-signed.zip). AppBrain shows that an update (version 2.6.7.721924arm) is available for this app, but when I ...

I have an HTC 10 running Oreo and on that you can change the picture folder to the SD card using the options in the camera app itself. Pull down the two bars at the top then scroll to the far left and you will find 'settings', scroll down (it isn't obvious that there are further settings below the four shown on screen), simply change the setting for '...

I have a HTC Desire and in my case non of the other answers worked. But I solved it in his way. Do not go into the camera app settings. Go into the general phone settings. The path is then... Settings/Storage Here I was able to define the default writing media from internal to SDcard. This includes also the camera app. Now my pictures can be saved either ...
