Recommended Posts

I recently got the ICS on my Galaxy SII from Sprint and all the battery is now draining fast! I used to love it because it lasted so much longer than the EVO that I had before but now something is wrong..is anyone else having this issue?? I love the new ICS update but its killing my battery life.

My GSII never received the OTA push, no matter how many times I went into system update. So I downloaded it to an SD card and booted it up from there, forcing it to update manually. But now my phone is jacked up - it freezes constantly, especially when using Chrome. I don't know what's up with it but it's consistently laggy and frustrating where Gingerbread was smooth and quite responsive (and never once froze to my knowledge). Is there anyway to UNDO the ICS "update?"

Yes, had to re-calibrate the battery and now all is well.

If you go into the boot menu on start up (volume up + power) there is a way to reflash/ wipe partition cache. Try that

I might try that. On second thought, as soon as I learn how to root my phone and flash a workable ROM that will run Jelly Bean, I think I'd just rather do that. I don't imagine it will be long before that's possible (if it isn't already).

I know someone who had the same issue and it did correct it. In addition to the battery the phone was lagging really bad before he cleared the cache.

    • One more thing.. I just took a photo of a random glass on my counter in low light with both phones with no modifications to the stock camera settings.  The difference is night and day.  The photo taken with the Note looks crisp. Details are sharp. The dim scene is brightened beautifully.  Even the curtains in the background remain sharp and clear even when zoomed in.  The Pixel 7 Pro attempt at the same photo is laughable.  Blurrycam UFO type horrendous.  Did I get a faulty device?  This thing is horrific.  Something seems waaaay off.  
    • I received my P7 Pro 2 days ago and - coming from my Note 10 plus - I absolutely hate it!  I didn't expect to hate it so much but even the screen looks grossly inferior to my Note 10+ even though I know that makes no sense, at least on paper.  But I'm holding them side by side right now and the Pixel 7 Pro display looks grainy and borderline blurry compared to my several year old Note 10+.  What's going on here??  I toggled on full resolution thinking that would change things but....no.  the screen just looks awful.  Also...is there a way to mirror the Pixel 7 Pro to your smart tv without WiFi?  I've always done this with my Samsung phone. I thought allcast would be able to help out with that but it seems to not even function with this phone.  I'm about to smash this damn thing against the wall but I can't because I need it in one piece so I can return it ASAP to Best Buy.  I've honestly never been so wildly disappointed in a device.  Definitely going to switch it for the S22 Ultra. I don't understand the hype with this device.  Other than instant Android updates (which may not be the best idea after all) ...I can no longer see the allure.  
    • Any word on how SCP works with lineageos 19 on a oneplus nord n200 5g? Alternatively, how does the modem option work with rooted Android 11 on the same device? Maybe it has been depreciated in the past given the APIs. But since those are failing with NSA was planning to revisit the rooted modem options.
    • It doesn't include T-Mobile because AT&T objected to the T-Mobile applications.  The fact that anything at all was filed will add time. - Trip
