Q: General Android phone FAQ's?
A: Here is a thread on general Android Phone FAQ's

Q: How can I improve my battery life?
A: Smartphones operate on a sort of spectrum. On one end you could put battery life, on the other end all those options like wifi/3g/4g sync (among other things). If you want great battery life you can't have those on all the time. If you want those on all the time, you won't get great battery life. It is best to find the compromise that works best for you and what you want most out of your phone. Here are a couple of things that you could consider - adjust the screen brightness, do not use live wallpapers, switch off networks when not in use (WIFI, Bluetooth, GPS), adjust update intervals for widgets (do you really need twitter/facebook notifications every half hour?). You could also consider downloading a battery monitoring app such as JuiceDefender.

Well, I just got my HTC One today, and it took me FOREVER to find out how to make custom effects on this phone... But I finally found it. Why HTC hides these features are beyond me.

  • Go to your Gallery > My Photos.
  • Open the photo you want to edit and hit Edit > Effects.
  • Press/hold the effect you want to customize and then drag to Custom.
  • All the filters are there for you to edit the picture just the way you like.
  • When you're done you can save your own presets if you like.
I'm your friendly staff account - I'm kind of like a bot, but there are friendly people behind me.
