[Q] stock UI q's (email split view and viewing photos)
Picked up an AT&T variant of the G2 last night to evaluate. After tinkering with it for a while (and searching here, of course) I've come up with a couple questions...
This is related to a completely stock LG G2 device. There's no custom firmware here. Stock. LG G2. Not "LG Flex", not "G2 with Flex features ported in..."
In the email app settings (settings->General Settings), there's a setting (checkbox) for "Split view." As far as I've been able to determine, this setting does nothing whatsoever other than pop up a dialog stating that "split view will be applied" (or "split view will not be applied.") (This is the STOCK LG G2 firmware... not something ported from another device.) What purpose does this checkbox serve?
I've noticed that LG has both "gallery" and "photos" pre-installed on the phone. Is there any particular reason to have both of them enabled? If I remember correctly from AOSP, "gallery" is actually part of the AOSP camera app, so "photos" is probably a newer standalone. However, it disturbs my sense of organization to have multiple photo viewing apps if they don't offer unique functionality. Any thoughts?
While I'm asking about the email app - I have multiple email accounts and I like that I can do a "combined view." However, it's annoying when I have several unread email that tapping the email icon seems to change the view to a specific account instead of leaving it at combined... Is there any way to make "combined view" be the default?
