Pretty cool how the market is expanding to other brands. If I'm ever gonna pick up a Samsung in the future I'll make sure it's an android, because I'm not exactly sure how I feel about the Galaxy in particular and it's responsiveness.

What are you talking about? Android is not a model of phone. It's an operating system. The Galaxy uses Android.

Just a couple key points:

Airplane mode does not provide a faster charge, at least not enough that you will notice.

Bulging batteries are damaged batteries and must be replaced immediately. There is no safe way to use a battery in this condition.

The devil is in the details. Hardware specs, though minor in some cases, are not as good.

Samsung Galaxy / Re: So, what you guys think about the new S7?

Pre-release opinions aren't all that valuable, at least not to me. I prefer to see a review with an unboxing before weighing in.

The app selection and quality for Windows devices is lackluster at best. Despite a few minor policy changes Microsoft hasn't done much to encourage developers to port popular android and apple apps to Windows. Until they do Microsoft will continue to lag in the mobile market.

I have used an iPhone before. I wasn't impressed enough to upgrade and if it hadn't been free I would have never gotten one. I just switched from a Lumia 640 Windows Phone to an android device with decent hardware and I'm happy about it. Having used the three operating systems on similar hardware I like Android the best, but a device isn't automatically going to be better because of the OS.

A nice Ui on it's own doesn't amount to much unless the utility of the device meets people's needs.

There are an astounding number of Android products on the market, so this isn't very surprising news. What is surprising is that iOS continues to do so well despite providing absolutely no innovations in the past five years ...

Considering that iOS and Android are essentially derived from the same operating system and that the innovation comes in the area of hardware I'm not sure that you have a point.

Who else believes android is not just a phones OS?

It is a mobile device OS for devices with touch interfaces. It isn't a matter of opinion or belief. I might add that this probably isn't the right section for this topic.

Lumia / Re: Are Nokia Phones good?

Nokia does not equal Lumia. Microsoft isn't even  using the Nokia name anymore. Microsoft did not buy Nokia, they just bought the rights to their smartphone business and per their agreements Nokia is free to re-enter the smartphone business on it's own at some point this year.

Why original charger? It costs more and does the same thing as the one that is not original. I  like your suggestions because they all make sense. I usually do not turn off my phone during charging but I do turn off wi fi, data, background applications, etc.
Thank you for the instructions.

You can safely ignore this list almost in it's entirety. Using the original charger is probably safest but not nessacary. I realize that it reads like manufacturer guide lines and may very well be sourced from them, but those are often wrong when it comes to batteries as well. Manufacturers will often include unnecessary precautions in the effort to mitigate legal issues, not because they are technical sound from an engineering standpoint.

Clearing background apps is never helpful, it just results in slower app launches. Turning all that stuff off doesn't help enough to justify the time and effort and 3rd party chargers are fine if they are quality products. What you want to avoid is the 3rd part knockoffs that claim to be the original product. These are more of a problem in places in Asia and in the Philippines or Malaysia than in the Unites States or Europe.

Turning all those functions off will not charge the phone noticeably quicker because they don't take much power unless you are actively using them. It is fine to charge with that stuff on in the background. Shutting it all down will only result in a slower start up routine as you will have to turn  the services back on, and any apps you closed from the recently used list will take longer to start. Those apps aren't actually running, they were just stored in memory for faster access. I'm willing to bet the time you saved in charging is less then the time it takes to tuns stuff on and load your apps.

Tablets (All Models) / Re: Tab 4 7.0 android update?
« on: January 16, 2016, 07:39:28 PM »
As far as I know Samsung is just slower in general to update this particular device. The 7 and 8 inch models still await the update last I checked. There really is no need to push the up date anyway. It wont drasticly change the functionality.
