    Thread Question WiFi Hotspot Doesn't Work on Zenfone 8??

    Hi folks... I set up my new Zenfone 8 to use as a WiFi hotspot. It doesn't work at all (I tried connecting with my computer, and with another phone, and I get no internet connectivity). However, if I use my work's Samsung S20 or my old Sony XPeria XZ2 Compact, it works fine. My work's on...

    Thread How can I un-app-ify a website on Chrome for Android?

    Hi folks... So some websites do things to Chrome on Android that I don't like. In particular: 1. Some sites, when launched from a link on the Home Screen, launch into a mode without any browser controls 2. Some sites don't let me add a link to the Home Screen, but only let me run it "as an...

    Post How to know which app as put up a specific status bar icon?

    Ok, it turns out it was the latest update to DejaOffice - it DOES show alarms/notifications, but since the update, it's showing an alarm icon in the status side of the top/status/notification bar, and not showing a notification. Opening the app does nothing to dispell the alarm icon. I had to...

    Post How to know which app as put up a specific status bar icon?

    That'd be great, except it's not a notification, it's not on the notification bar, it's on the status bar (right side). Notification settings doesn't show anything from that side of the bar. Unless I'm sadly mistaken? Care to elucidate? - Tim

    Thread How to know which app as put up a specific status bar icon?

    Hi all! Does anyone know if there's a built-in way, or an app, that I can use to find out what app has put an icon on the status bar? For example, there's currently an "alarm clock" icon in my status bar, but I didn't set an alarm on anything. I'm wonder what app placed it there. Any way I...

    Thread "Save Location" setting in camera keeps getting disabled

    I keep enabling the "Save Location" (gps location) in my XZ2 Compact's camea settings, but it keeps disabling itself after some time. Anyone else see this happening, or have a solution for it? I can't understand why a setting would keep getting disabled. I DO have "Stamina Mode" enabled most...

    Thread Any reports of Google services spying on non-Google apps?

    Post Any way to exit Dex when detach keyboard?

    I contacted Case-Mate about cases for this (and for the Google Pixel), as I have Tough cases for several other phones. They thanked me for my comment, tho' said they had no plans for a Tough case for either phone at this time. Too bad, as I really like the Tough Case.

    Post Brightness throttling, disappointing.

    Post Brightness throttling, disappointing.

    Wouldn't units that have a higher max brightness be more likely to see the problem than units with lower max brightness, since higher max brightness would 1) be more noticeable when it changed, and 2) trigger thermal limits more often than units with lower max brightness? - Tim

    Post Brightness throttling, disappointing.

    I'm seeing this too (I always have my brightness turned up to max so it's really noticeable when it happens). Does anyone know just how common this is and if it happens on all units? I've seen some people say they can't see this happen. - Tim Sent from my Nexus 5
