This is not a software setting: Android is just telling you that the power source you connected the device to is not giving enough electrical power to charge as fast as it could. It seems that: "Charging slowly" means below 1A (at 5V), "Charging" means between 1A and 1.5A, "Charging rapidly" means more than 1.5A. The solution is to make more electrical ...

You cannot (barring any hardware tweaks.) If you root your phone and install a custom ROM, you may be able to remove the "Turn off" and "Reboot" options from the Power menu. However, Nexus 5 (as do most modern phones) has a hard-wired feature, where holding the power button for 10 seconds shuts the phone off. This is done so that you can restart the phone ...

For what ADB backup does, you might wish to see our backup tag-wiki. Basically, depending on the command line switches used, it backs up apps (.apk) and their data. For a full list of options see this. As for the second part of your question, you might wish to see Is there a way to look inside and modify an adb backup created file? Yes, it's possible ...

Yeah, you can remove it. Just switch to the guest user, pull down the notification with two fingers and tap on the user icon in the top right corner. It will then offer you the possibility to remove the guest user.

I just spoke to Google directly. The Nexus 5 under settings, apps has something called Google Play services. Not store. If you uncheck the notification box in Google Play services and restart the phone the notification for the Android system updates will stop in the notification bar. Worked like a charm!

Other answers have explained about how to make it charging faster, this answer tries to explain more about the threshold that the Android uses. The charging speed is not configurable; it's just a status that Android shows to let the user knows about it. When it was first implemented, it's based on the how much current (in milliAmpere) it receives. As shown ...

Did you backup/restore your settings to/from Google? If so, that's why you can connect to these wireless networks. One of the things that gets backed up is the wireless network passwords so when you restored them back on your new device it is able to connect. Android has built in backup functionality. It offers to backup settings (including wifi settings) ...

Simple Resolution / Answer I had this same problem with my Nexus 5X, using Android M. I also went ahead & turned all the permissions off, except for Twilight, the suspected culprit. I still had the problem. So I went ahead and also turned over the overlay for Twilight, and I did not have the problem. So, Twilight is the "problem", in my case and in ...

The Nexus 5 runs a Snapdragon 800, which is not a 64-bit supported processor. That means you should be going for the arm version of Xposed, and not the arm64 version. NOTE: You are getting confused with the meaning of x86. In this context, x86 refers to mobile processors made by Intel (the Nexus 5 has an "arm" chip). The difference between "arm" and "arm64" ...

For Android 5.0.x Lollipop: Either on "Recents" or "Call History", tap the entry you want to see. It will open a mini-menu under the entry with options "Call back" and "Details". Select "Details" to see the call details. From here, you can see the time when you receive/miss a call, and also the duration of the call. Click the image for larger variant

There's usually a wrong conception on how these "numbers" should be interpreted. For example, your screenshot shows "Screen: 3%". So what does that mean? a. the screen ate 3% of your battery, thus reducing it e.g. from 100% to 97% b. the screen was responsible for the overall discharging by 3% – in this case, it "ate 1.8% juice" Hint: it's not a) – so your ...

Auto rotate Home screen was one of the top features of 2nd Android M Developer preview. I hate to burst the bubble, Auto rotate home screen feature was not incorporated in the final version of Android Marshmallow 6.0. We're disappointed to see that auto rotate support hasn't made it to the home screen, however. In the second developer preview, the ...

I did some digging around and found that this change was introduced in an update for Gingerbread. It applies to all Nexus devices starting from the Nexus S (except the Nexus One since it comes pre-installed with Facebook). The problem Google has with Facebook sync is the inability to port the data that Facebook sync adds to the contacts, out of your device. ...

Go into the Gmail app. From the overflow menu (the three dots in the corner), choose Settings. In the settings window, choose the Gmail account you're using. (If you have more than one account, do the following for each in turn.) Notifications is the third option down. Turning it off will disable mail notifications. In general, you should look for a ...

reboot your phone. I did that and the feature is there in the menu. After rebooting, you may need to click on "chat," not on "calls" or "contacts." Hope that helps.

I think you encountered the issue with a stuck power button. I had the exact same behaviour that also went away without explanation to return a few weeks later. I read the one trick is to bang it in a hard surface and shock the button out of its stuck state. The second time it occurred I actually found a much more gentle way to temporarily fix this. Take an ...

According to Google, this functionality is no longer available unless you enable group MMS. Unfortunately, MMSs are much more expensive for me and aren't displayed correctly on some older feature phones. Once again, Google doesn't care about non-Google communication protocols, possibly in an attempt to force people onto Google products or out of sheer ...

From the official Android Lollipop website, Android 5.0 provides a faster, smoother and more powerful computing experience. Android now runs exclusively on the new ART runtime, built from the ground up to support a mix of ahead-of-time (AOT), just-in-time (JIT), and interpreted code. It’s supported on ARM, x86, and MIPS architectures and is fully 64-...

Your encryption password is the same as the pattern/PIN/password you use to lock your screen. So simply go to Settings > Security > Screen lock and change it. Note that when you do this Android will ask you whether to also enter the pattern/PIN/password when you start the device in order to make your encrypted device's data unreadable without it. In Android ...

This is a kludge and probably only a partial solution. I followed the messages to the permission screen, selected the option "apps with this permission" then proceeded to turn off the overlay permission on all apps that had it set on. I was then able to enable the permission that the app I was running required. Because I turned off the permission on all apps,...

The only thing that worked for me is to stop the Phone Application. It restarts itself again, so you don't have to worry for missing calls or anything. Steps: Settings -> Apps -> ALL -> Phone. Click Force stop Source: Clear Voice Mail Notification Icon

Yes. Probably, these are app's update, because if they are OS updates you would be asked to restart your device or install the update. To avoid auto update from app's:In the Play store app, swipe from the left edge to the right. Go to settings. Under the "General" list, select "Update app's automatically"and mark with a dot "Only through Wi-Fi"

This is by way of supplementing OP's research with additional relevant inputs "Charging Rapidly" always is neither desirable nor changing the charger mode user configurable Why is it not desirable? Current drawn for charging is not uniform. It varies depending on the stage of charging as can be seen from Figure 1 here This is reiterated by OEM-see ...

As you've found out, a Hall sensor detects a magnetic field. It could be that in this case it's referring to a sensor for a magnetic cover, like those in the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. Such sensors detect the proximity of a magnet embedded in the cover or case for the device, in order to automatically turn the screen off when the cover is closed. That would be ...

The issue was not Android. (Except perhaps the misleading error message.) The problem, it turns out, was that the pairings on the radio were "full". It seems this radio (CDE-133BT) allows 3 pairings. Well, I inadvertently renamed my Nexus some point along the way when I also unpaired it from the phone. Attempting to re-pair without first emptying a ...

Currently, the default google launcher does not allow any customisation. In order to go to a particular screen, you need a custom launcher. There is no other way around it.
