I am not sure why Samsung support would tell you that a full charge cycle is less than an hour... All references I have found, like this one, indicate a normal charge time from 0-50% of around 36-40 minutes, and a full charge cycle from 0-100% would be in the range of 1hr 37min to 1hr 45min using the stock A/C wired charging adapter.
There are many possible ...
So I did a bit of digging and found two related threads describing your problem:
User Friendly Solution
As you've described you had transferred over your settings from a different device and the 'Night Light' settings were hidden by the Samsung software.
The most user friendly way is from Reddit:
PSA: Night Light and Blue Light Filter Overlap
where the ...
When the SSID is shared, the access point is responsible for band steering.
Dual band operation with Band Steering detects clients capable of 5
GHz operation and steers them to that frequency which leaves the more
crowded 2.4 GHz band available for legacy clients.
Enable band steering in your WiFi controller.
Unfortunately I also don't know a way how to configure the format used by the system screenshot function that can be triggered via Volume-Down + Power.
However if you can trigger your screenshots via adb and the screencap command let you choose which image format is used. You can select if by the file extension:
I am currently using a Galaxy S10+, and I was using a Galaxy Note 8 before that. Both phones support rotating the homescreen to landscape in their native launcher, but it is disabled by default. I am going to assume your Galaxy S9 supports this as well. Try the following:
Go to Settings > Display > Homescreen. Then look for a setting related to rotation.
There is indeed a way to disable it by ADB.
Setup ADB on your PC/Mac.
Enable USB debugging on your android
Connect your device to the PC/Mac
Run following command in shell/terminal:
adb shell settings put secure show_rotation_suggestions 0
MTP is crap for that task – OK for a few files in "small folders", but stalling for folders with many files in, or copying many files, or trying things in parallel.
As you use Linux, ADB would be a great alternative. I use that with adbfs-rootless, which allows mounting the device locally on your computer and works like a charm (I'm using it for years, so I ...
The only conceivable way I can think to achieve this would be the use of some kind of external USB DAC (digital-to-analogue converter), which involves routing the audio out through the USB C port
I've successfully done this using a cheap adapter-type "soundcard" (the 'Sabrent Aluminum USB External 3D Stereo Sound Adapter', bought on Amazon), which involved ...
I don't think WiFi can be designated as a Mobile Network, but stock Android provides option to set WiFi network as metered. When connected to the WiFi, go to that WiFi connection settings and you will find options to set the connection metered or unmetered (at least on Pie).
OEMs might be removing the option from GUI. You can also try CLI method as stated ...
Its not blurred wallpaper, it applied two wallpapers, one for lock screen and other for home screen.
To set Wallpaper(single wallpaper for both screens):
Open wallpaper app, and select any wallpaper, and select this option set as Home screen and Lock screen OR Set Both(option in Google wallpaper app) .
Press and hold home screen, the screen will shows ...
Quoted from an earlier answer of mine:
Ultimate Rotation Control forces any app - even those that don't
support a certain orientation - into any orientation. It also supports
setting on a per-app basis.
However, note that even if you could force an app to show in landscape, the app itself might not actually support it, and the layout could look ...
I'm not sure regarding the default UI settings as I use Nova Launcher myself (on a stock Samsung Note 8). For Nova Launcher though -- root not required -- you would go into Nova Settings > Look & Feel > Scrren Oreintation and set to desired settings, such as Auto-Rotate. I noted that the default value is set to "System Default", which does not rotate. ...
You can disable the Bixby button by using
Bixbi Button Remapper - bxActions. This allows you to remap the button to another action.
As for disabling Bixby altogether, I am unsure of how to do it. There were mentions of using Package Disabler Pro+(Paid app) to disable it. I do not know if this will work, but people keep recommending it.
Another mention ...
That section is showing predicted apps. This feature was introduced in Android 9 along with their changes to the recent apps screen. I'm not sure there's a common name for that UI element but I found relevant info when searching for "predicted app drawer" and "app suggestions".
AFAIK, you can't customize this - the apps that appear are predicted by the ...
Yes this can done. I recently updated guide to remove Bixby using adb.
Assuming you've adb installed on your machine, you can run following command to get packages related to Bixby.
adb shell pm list packages | findstr "bixby"
Next step is to uninstall those packages for the current user (that is you). An example for one of the packages:
adb shell pm ...
Not sure if it is an error on your end or Sammobiles. You did however appear to have flashed EVR firmware variant instead of Blu firmware variant.
Carefully check and re-download the Blu firmware variant and flash again through Odin.
Thinking about it though, as long as the CSC you are changing it from is not included in the CSC you are flashing, ...
After a few more failures where I tried exporting contacts as VCF and importing into my Google account (imported 9 out of 209 - no message to indicate why the remaining 200 didn't import) and trying to import the VCF direct onto the phone (failed completely with a message indicating the format was invalid) I eventually tried the Smart Switch app again, this ...
I have the same problem, wired headset control worked nice with Podcast Addict (after some minor tweaking in podcast addict settings), but rewind/forward(i.e. prev/next) = double tap/triple tap, on the play button, DID not work with Audible.
A partial solution I have, just tried recently (August 2019):
install "button mapper" app (the app has nasty ...
I am using the latest Samsung S8, so I will assume yours is most likely exactly the same procedure.
From the Recents list, tap the number you wish to create as a contact.
Mine opens a bar just below, 'Call' with a green phone icon, 'Message' with a bubble for messaging, and 'Details' with an info icon.
Tap 'Details' for an action bar to appear at the ...
