In short, it indicates that for the mobile calls the wifi will be used, if there's a good wifi signal. I have found it there: Small phone with Wi-Fi coming from it This strange new symbol shows your phone’s set up for Wi-Fi calling. It’s a new feature brought in by the UK’s biggest networks to help give you the best call quality. If your phone doesn’...

Let's see: The package name of the Memo app on Samsung phones is called com.samsung.android.app.memo. There is no such folder in sdcard\Android\data, so it has to be in /data/data/. And how correct I am: Using adb shell and giving myself root access (su) to access /data, I am able to explore my own private data. Now let's look inside and we find a ...

Android uses tzdata (IANA Time Zone Database) to store time zone data, and Daylight Saving Time (DST) information is included in it. The data tells if DST is observed from what date/time to what date/time on a given time zone. Thus, you can't really disable the DST if you're using a time zone that observes DST. Therefore, to "disable" the DST, you have to ...

System updates are applied (typically) to the /system partition, which is not accessible to you or your applications but is reserved for the operating system. It will over-write your existing Android version and should not take up more user space (this space is already reserved for the operating system, it usually is from 512MB to 4GB of reserved space, ...

This one works for me on Android 5.0.1 and 5.1.1 Open a terminal, grant it root access then run settings put global guest_user_enabled 0 You don't need to add fw.max_users=1 to your build.prop. It prevents more accounts from being created besides disabling guest feature. The above method only shuts off guest while leaving the "more users" option available....

There's no fastboot for Samsung devices - Download mode is the semi-equivalent, except that it's only accessible via Odin/Heimdall. You will need appropriate drivers to get the PC to recognize a device in Download mode. Most Samsung phones come with their BL unlocked or unlockable (notable exceptions are AT&T/Verizon devices). To root these devices, ...

I found myself an answer to part one of the question: Yes, on the Galaxy S6 you can apparently use the fingerprint sensor to unlock the device after encrytion. Infomation found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s6/help/fingerprint-unlock-device-encryption-t3081102 Has somebody something to say for part two? :-) Edit 2015-10-06: I got my S6 ...

I was getting very frustrated with my Samsung Galaxy S6 and my new Dell Precision M3800 and USB connectivity. Apparently the S6 is not fully compatible with USB 3 connections. I could not get it to connect (other than charging) to any of the 3 USB 3 ports on my laptop (no usb 2 on the new Dell). It connects fine to my older laptop (USB 2), so I decided to ...

That's not really an Android question, but assuming you were asking "how can I import this VCard file correctly into my Android address book": Some adjustments might be required to the VCard file. I found a specification summary in this Github issue comment: vCard 2.1 is US-ASCII by default. Individual properties can be overridden with the CHARSET= ...

Searching the name of that "virus" returns only results for NQ Security, who are essentially a nobody company accused of creating spyware to trick people into paying for their useless security app. In my opinion, this is a complete scam. You should check in Settings → Security (or Safety & Privacy) under Device Administrators and remove any apps ...

Fast charging is not related to the cable - the circuitry is in the adapter and device. That said you need to buy a cable that can carry higher amperage , allowing fast charging speed ( cable per se doesn't increase the speed but because it permits more power, speed is increased) Thicker the cable, better it is ( thicker cables have lower AWG number ) Go ...

Factory reset only delete user data (userdata partition) and restore settings to the default values, meaning every settings will be restored to the factory state. This doesn't apply to the system, (firmware/ROM) which remains untouched. By original factory ROM, do you mean the one the phone came with? This can be done by downgrading the phone firmware: ...

Is this normal Yes. See answers here and the linked dupe question Upgraded my phone from 1.6 to 2.2 Android version, if I restore "Factory Settings", which version it will be? Is there a way to make factory reset force the phone to return to the original factory ROM? No. You would need to downgrade manually which may not always be possible as ...

It can be completely automated. First, you need to know how button click data is submitted to the server: GET (less likely) or POST If data is submitted to server using GET, just record the URL after submission. If data is submitted using POST, intercept the HTTP header when you click the button (there are lots of softwares for that; for example this ...

No, simultaneous voice and LTE data is only available when using VoLTE (aka "Advanced Calling") on the Samsung Galaxy S6.

If your device meets the following requirements viz., Compatibility Supports AOSP devices running vanilla Android 5.0 DOES NOT support devices running ROMs vastly modified by device manufacturers (HTC Sense, Samsung Touchwiz, MIUI, LeWa, Xperia, ...)

Sad but true, it's a hardware issue. As far as I understand, the board containing usb socket needs to be replaced. PS: Also the worldwide warranty that I was promised to have in official (listed on samsung.com) retail shop doesn't exist.

First part of your question How do fast Chargers work Firstly one needs to understand C-rate or charge rate. Quoting from the linked article C-rate is a measure that governs at what current a battery is charged and discharged. At 1C, a battery rated 1,000mAh charges at a current of 1,000mAh. In an ideal world the battery would be fully charged in 60 ...

I figured out how to send .gif files with my Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and I'm sure there are others out there that are just as frustrated in their search. I tried downloading several .gif editors like Textra and they just did not work the way I wanted. The one app that I found that works is Google Messenger. Steps I did that worked: Downloaded Google ...

This is funny, because they have an article about it, related to the S6 http://www.verizonwireless.com/mobile-living/tech-smarts/how-to-record-audio-smartphone/ The phone apparently has a pre-installed app for audio recording which may be malfunctioning
