    Post Proximity Sensor Issue

    There is no fix. This is apparently the way AOD works now. I can't remember if it started with the S10s or S20s.

    Post S20 FE Cases and Covers

    I just picked up this Anccer case in green from Amazon. The color is darker than in the pictures and looks even better imo. Not much drop protection, but it's very light and low profile, which is what I was looking for. There is a slight lip around the screen and camera though I wish it were a...

    Post HDR compability?

    Neither Netflix nor Prime shows in HDR for me on the S20 FE. Youtube detects the display is HDR capable, but does not seem to activate HDR (e.g., by maxing the brightness). My guess is Samsung caught these content providers by surprise with the release of the S20 FE, so they haven't had time to...

    Post The Dell Venue 8 7840 has a secret.

    Very interesting... this might be just the tablet I'm looking for, as I use LectureNotes extensively on my various Galaxy Note devices. If you set LectureNotes to "Use stylus (hardware detection)" does the tablet still detect the stylus?

    Thread Drilling a hole in flip cover for LED notifications...

    Has anyone successfully drilled a hole in any flip cover so they can see the notification LED light on their Note 5? I know this trick worked with prior Note models, but I seem to recall reading somewhere the LED is disabled when the Samsung flip cover is closed. Can anyone confirm the...

    As you probably know, Google just released a Hangouts Dialer that you can use with a new version of Hangouts (2.3) to make VOIP calls. I was curious to see if I could use it with my Note 8 (Wifi). Unfortunately, while I was able to download the Dialer, the Play Store said Hangouts 2.3 was...

    Post Looking for Google Experience launcher

    The Google Experience Launcher is now available in the Play Store. I installed it on my Note 8 and have been reasonably pleased. The problem is I can't seem to get the "ok Google" detection to work. It works fine if I press the microphone button, but won't recognize it when I say "ok Google"...

    Post AT&T Note 3 GPS Navigation Issues

    The problem most people had, and that Kit Kat has fixed (for me, at least), wasn't just losing GPS signal. It was that, when you lost GPS, it didn't automatically reconnect. You had to manually toggle the GPS on and off to get it back. To clarify, are you still having that problem after updating?

    Post [FIX] Note 3 GPS Issues

    Try re-calibrating the compass again. I find the compass gets out of whack and must be re-calibrated constantly, otherwise the poles flip/freeze causing the bouncing around of your GPS icon. I can connect consistently to 12-19 satellites, but if my compass isn't calibrated, my GPS will still...

    Tell them you're going to leave AT&T unless they give you a free Femtocell, which is like a mini cell tower you hook up to your router. If they try to charge you, then keep escalating up the food chain. Call back if you have to. They may ask you to pay for the Femtocell but refund you the price...

    Awesome! How long had you had the phone before you asked for an exchange? And did you have to send in the wonky phone for any kind of warranty service before they would send you a replacement?

    Post AT&T Note 3 GPS Navigation Issues

    Got the dreaded "GPS signal is lost" twice yesterday. The most infuriating thing is it won't reconnect automatically. I have to back out of maps, then re-enter the navigation info to get the GPS to reconnect, though once I do so it reconnects immediately. One thing I did notice: it seemed to...

    I'm not rooted. However, I did find that force stopping Knox and clearing data seems to have stopped the alerts. Not sure if using the Google Experience Launcher will bring them back, though.

    Post AT&T Note 3 GPS Navigation Issues

    Nope, no root required. You may find you have to recalibrate periodically the first few times. But eventually it should take. My GPS now locks on much faster, even indoors, and I haven't had to recalibrate for some time.

    Post AT&T Note 3 GPS Navigation Issues

    Clear data and cache from Maps. Download GPS Status and Toolbox and use it to calibrate your sensors and to download AGPS data. I had the same issues. After doing this a few times, the GPS on my Note 3 has settled down and works as well or better than my OG Note.

    It goes automatically to Google Launcher with no Touchwiz option. A little tinkering reveals you have to clear the defaults for Google Search.

    Post Calibration compass?

    The Compass issues have nothing to do with S-Cover. I had them, too, when I first bought the phone. There were reports of this problem with the S4, too, IIRC. You have to calibrate your sensors using a program like GPS Status. It's a sightly more involved process than just doing the figure 8...

    Post [Q]Anyone having issues with GPS?

    I found the GPS a little wonky initially, but it seems to have settled down after a few calibrations of the sensors using GPS Status. I reliably get a lock within 30 feet indoors, and it's even more accurate outdoors.

    Post Workaround for Google Now access

    Unfortunately, this does not work for me. When I go into S-Voice, the home key option is already enabled. The option to "clear defaults" is grayed out in the App Manager. Disabling and re-enabling the home key in S-Voice does nothing. Same with clearing all S-Voice data in the App Manager...

    Post AT&T Note 3 GPS Navigation Issues

    I don't agree the problem is just Maps. When I downloaded GPS Toobox, it showed the same compass offset as Maps until I calibrated. Thus far, 24 hours later, that calibration seems to have done the trick. I'll update this thread if it returns.
