    Simple, clean, single page, every app i use daily on Nova launcher with other stuff launched by gesture or voice. Had a full dbrand concrete skin on silver N7 and took it off; corners didn't stick properly and it was thick and I ended up not liking it.

    Post S7 Active Thread

    there are pretty cheap (sub-$5) GLASS screen protectors that work pretty damn good and feel better to touch than the polycarb screen, and are replaceable. identical response characteristics to polycarb screen or regular S7 glass screen. thats what i use.

    Post EZ Packages Disabler or Packages Disbler Pro

    i have package disabler pro (samsung); works great; i imagine both do the same thing, which is completely disable apps and services you dont want. i have an S7 Active, which can not be rooted, so this was the easiest way to disable all the carrier stuff and facebook i didnt want and will never use.

    Post Can one S7 charge another S7 via wireless ?

    nothing would happen so long as liquid didnt hit any contacts, and no, with wireless charging, the phones have receiver units without the circuitry to send power, although the technology does indeed exist, which would be interesting.

    ...have you tried cursing/threatening/random acts of violence on inanimate objects? no? well BEFORE you do, advance wipe, wipe system/data/etc, reboot, or there are ways to reformat as ExFat with a PC too.

    Post Fast Wireless Charger - Slow...

    agreed, but i would bet the system simply takes the AVERAGE time to charge per PERCENT of battery life, multiplied by PERCENT REMAINING, and displays that result in minutes. case in point; S7 Active Fast Wireless Charger, from 25 to 35% in about 4 minutes; phone says 9 minutes; first time i use...

    Post Lexar 128GB UHS-II cards not compatible with S7E

    stick with SanDisk; i have sandisk microSD cards from back in the 512mb days and never an issue or failure; UHS1 from 32, 64, 128, and 200GB all work 100% fine. I work in film/photog advertising; from SD cards to SSD's to CF cards SanDisks are the only ones that consistently work reliably.

    Post Fast Wireless Charger - Slow...

    its about battery heat vs lifetime; best 'fast charging' timefrae/chargeframe is between 20% and 80%; before 20 it will be slow, after about 80 it will be slow. slower as its closet to 100%, and the reciprocal is true from 20 to 0%.
