No, it wouldn't make a lot of difference to the battery life, and it's just as likely to increase power consumption as to decrease it. The screen would still draw the same amount of power. All that you'd be saving is that the GPU wouldn't have to do as much work to shade pixels (i.e. determine the colour of each individual pixel) - but that would come at the ...

This icon seems to be some "user is active" icon that notifies you when the device captured you looking at the phone, but not actively using it.

So from what I can determine: Google announced native support for hearing aids with a specification called ASHA Based on this article on XDA Developers, it appears that only Pixel devices are enabled in AOSP, but that doesn't mean that manufacturers can't enable it for their own devices.

See if Google search is somehow disabled in the list of apps. Alternatively, ensure that the latest version of Google Search has been installed in your device. I am assuming of course, that Google Now is a supported feature in your country.

Why is this? It's faulty. What can I do about it? Return it to the vendor for repair or replacement. Nobody should expect this kind of problem with a new phone. It's not on you to fix it.

After THREE YEARS of searching for a fix... I think I just found a solution - and felt obligated to spread the information. Just plug the headphones in slowly... That's actually all there was to it... The notification icon for a plugged in audio jack at the top of the screen will show up differently if you did it right.

Short answer: You can, but you shouldn't. Install a custom ROM instead. Long answer: Some features in your stock ROM may be dependant on that ROM's Settings app, because it might contain some preferences that affect them. Your Settings app may be missing some Lollipop settings simply because the ROM doesn't support them. You can try to install the AOSP ...

Looks like the LG Watch Style's charger has NO DATA PIN. The workaround for me was to use Bluetooth debugging, you will need an Android phone with a USB cable and a computer running the ADB server.

I'd say in general you should refrain from using any absolute paths in your HTML file,they will almost definitely break as soon as you change devices, and is probably a bad practice regardless of the purpose. If you want to do this property I'd strongly recommend creating a master folder for all your recipe related files where you'd keep all the involved ...
