There are two parts to your question
a) Factory reset removes user data including apps installed by the user on phone. Since your device is rooted, you can see that everything in /data
and /data/data will be wiped.
b) Factory reset does not flash stock ROM. Since you have deleted preloaded apps, they will not be restored. If you want ...
I notice this annoyance too.
Looks like the best solution is to enable volume key text resizing, and leave it enabled.
Once you disable it, the Messages app resets the text size to the huge (on the Galaxy Note, that is) font/bubble size.
This won't be noticeable on other phones; the real cause is that the GNote is big, which is what all GNote owners like ...
Samsung devices can usually be forced into download mode using a JIG. They are pretty simple and cheap to make. If your device has been soft-bricked this will almost always work.
Assuming an Android version of 3.1+, external drives should be supported via USB host mode by most devices -- see Compro01's comments below:
Not all devices support USB host mode, 3.1+ or not. Chainfire has a nice app to test compatability (and an extensive database of reports from that app on which devices work and which don't).
Also, if we're talking ...
After a lot of Googling around, I found 2 possible solutions:
Hardware solution: Kensington Noise Reducing AUX Audio Cable - haven't tried it myself. Yet some guys at android central report it worked for them.
Software solution: Aux Noise Filter app - Tried it on my Galaxy Note. Works like a charm.
You could perhaps download a font from the Google play store? I've seen some fonts packs up there.
Some of these will more than likely require your device be rooted.
Or you can change the size of your ...

When you are in contacts you have to edit your contact list by importing or exporting contacts. There's nothing on the screen to indicate how to do this but pull up the menu by pressing the icon on the very bottom left of the phone (on the note3 this is not on the screen but on the frame around the screen) and then you can click on import/export and move ...

Clearing the cache and data from the Clock app resolved the issue. After clearing the cache and data, the old alarms were removed (data loss) but new alarms ring properly.
This appears to be an undocumented feature of Note 7 as per this XDA thread Samsung factory restore after inserting SIM for the first time on GN7 by ninja0n3
OP here faced the same problem and reproduced the chat transcript with Samsung help . Extracts:
Veronica (Samsung): I would like to inform you that, It will be reset to Factory settings, when you ...
There's a contradiction in terms: a popup from Google would never speak of viruses on Android, as there are none (i.e. no Android viruses, though there's enough of Android malware).
That looks more like malvertizing, especially as it asks you to "install some app". Do not follow that advice, do not install that app. The appearance you describe is a known ...

It seems that clearing G camera cache can help temporarily. It seems to be phone issue and I would suggest that you should raise this issue in Samsung forum or seek help from Samsung service center.
Quoted from the ...
Shareing is a feature the application needs to explicitly code for and then advertise to the system that it accepts share requests. If you have an SCP app that you like but it is not offering the share feature try checking if the developer has a website with more information. If you still have no luck try emailing the developer and asking for the feature.
After endless frustration with this issue, I have finally solved it without rooting the device.
The solution for me has been External Keyboard Helper Pro, a $2.45 app on the play store (a demo version is also available).
It detects when a bluetooth keyboard connects, and brings up a pop-up menu allowing you to select "External Keyboard" with two quick taps ...
No, do not try to do this, or you will brick your device. SHV-E160L and GT-N7000 have completely different processors (Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8060 for SHV-E160L, and Samsung S5PC210 for GT-N7000); e.g., see this comparison.
There are some custom ROMs for SHV-E160L in the xda-developers section for AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note I717 (this device is closer to ...
I had this problem on my Galaxy S4 - whining noise from alternator (changing pitch with engine revs) plus random static. It only occurred when the charger was plugged in the USB port, and when no music was playing. I installed Aux Noise Filter and it worked a treat.
If it's a hardware defect, I would suggest sending it to a service center for repair. You could plug it to a portable power bank so it lasts longer. But before you do that, you might want to back up your data to your PC or somewhere else first.
"plug into charger or computer while u press power button + vol down + home when the os screen"
Should be without power button pressing because power button does not work.
But when this is followed it DID WORK! Thanks!
(exiting firmware menu boots the phone)
Worked with Galaxy Note 3.
I had the exact same issue with my Note II. The best solution I've found is the app Quick Keyboard Switch, which gives you a notification bar icon you can tap after pulling down to bring up a dialog box to switch KBs. You can switch back the Samsung kb, and from there hit the handwriting input button to get back to pen input.
Head over to http://get.cm/?device=n7000 and note the MD5sum of the download (take care that build name / date match, of course).
You can then check it on your phone against what was downloaded using FileSums together with any File Explorer app (filesums acts as possible target for the "send to" share button when you long press the .zip file). Open the file ...
Are you saying you bought a used phone from another person (not a store) like from ebay or craigslist?
If so, it could very likely be a worn out battery. If the phone was advertised as problem free and fully working, and especially if it was advertised as brand new when clearly not, you can pursue a return through whatever site you bought it from.
I had this same experience just yesterday with my wife's Note 7, but without anything to do with Exchange or ActiveSync. It's some security policy on the Note 7 itself, I think. I am online to investigate why this happened also. I had powered-off the Note 7 before inserting the SIM card. After power-up, as I watched to see if it connected to the Mobile ...
