Post Multitasking & Memory/App Management

How is the HTC ONE handling this?

For you EVO 4G LTE users, do you see any major differences? You cats know the EVO 4G LTE was pretty aggressive in handling these functions.

Handles it perfectly, the boost in memory up to 2gb has really took the shackles off and I don't think it's as aggressively managed now. I had the tegra 3 one x and didn't find the multitasking to be as bad as on the dual core us version but sometimes it would get a little frustrating particularly on the browser.

I was concerned about this as well. However I played with a demo unit in an AT&T store yesterday and found no "refresh" problems when multitasking.

Also, thank God they got rid of that stupid card set up.

I found the One to be very good in that aspect, light years ahead of the Note 2 or S3 for example. To be honest, I can see myself using this without any sort of app killer, at least for now.

I use an app called NQ Memory Booster and it works brilliantly. The memory hovers around 45% used.

I can now answer my own question: yes, HTC has greatly improved multitasking from the One X. App no longer refresh when you go back to them. The grid view is much more efficient than the previous card view. Overall I wish they would just use the stock version of app switching because it's perfect but this is a big step up from last year.

Default No task manager?

Maybe I'm not seeing it but I can't find a task manager that came with my new Htc one? I'm coming from an evo 3d and it was nice to close out everything at once. Anyone else know?

Nope.. the HTC task manager is not really needed.
There is one built into Android... double tap the home button and swipe the apps off the screen that you want gone.

Long press on the home button works with other jellybean phones. The task manager is accessed by tapping on the little graph icon in the lower left corner.

Ignore this for the HTC One. HTC is trying to change the android paradigm so I guess you guys will just have to rely on each other. I'll miss you.

Default slow lock sreen

I've been using my htc one for about a week now and have used only bout 8/32gb of storage. I don't use any other additional panels on my home screen and have a handful of widgets on the home panel. but the lock screen seems to be quite slow every time i access my phone. it takes bout 2-3 seconds before the pin pad appears. my friend just got his htc one yesterday and his lock screen appears ALOT faster than mine. is this because i have stuff installed already? any tips to restore it to normal speed?

Thanks!

Have you tried restarting your phone? Are you using power saver settings for CPU usage? These are things you might want to consider or it could be an app you installed. Try to uninstall the ones you think it might be.

Change is great! HTC really let the Cougar out of the bag with this phone and it's setup. HTC this is long overdue! People have always claimed that HTC has the best hardware and now they have really proven it. I hated the browser on my EVO 3D. Monly complaint with that phone. When they issued a fix for the capacative buttons on the HTC One I was in heaven. That was a minor issue to me.

I can't stop showing off my phone. I wish SEIDIO would have created a clear active case for this phone if that's possible. Putting a case on the phone takes away from the beauty and sleekness of the device. But I use my case because I'm afraid of accidental drops.

I had a female friend over for the night. (Kids cover the ears..lol.) Needless to say her arms were going all over the place and she reached over and knocked the HTC One off of my nightstand. Yes, everything stopped at that point and I made sure to move the phone far far away. It was in it's active case when it hit the carpet thank goodness.

Default Is Andoid energy-efficient?

I bought Nova Launcher and couple of clock widget as well. Quite soon I realized that I'm happy with Sense 5 and not needing those clock widgets at all. However, I noticed that they were started automatically and because I don't want to waste any of processing power (or anything else), I uninstalled those widgets just to be sure. Do you think it would be good enough if I just never used those widgets and left android take care of those? I mean I even unistalled Nova Launcher even though I thought that it would be fun to try time to time. I just don't want waste my battery to anything I'm not asking for..

I can't comment on how launchers run on an HTC One. What I can say is that Android uses RAM in a smart fashion. Basically, it uses a Just In Time Compiler to determine when to move applications out of foreground memory to cached memory. This frees RAM in order to run apps efficiently. So yes, letting Android manage app processes is the right way to go.

I'm gonna move this to the HTC One forum so users that know the device may offer more advice.

And, a belated welcome to Android Forums! This place has a wonderful community. Hope you stick around!

Default Lagging lock screen (possible memory issue?)

I lock my screen with a 4 digit password. As of the last 2 weeks I will press the power button and it was take 2 or 3 seconds for the screen to turn on (it used to be instant). When I do type in my password there is lag and it takes another few seconds for it to load (again this used to be instant). Rest of the phone is totally fine, so what has caused it to suddenly become slow to respond to the power button and passcode entry?

Default "Awake"/"Screen On" when powered off

Hey everyone!

Love my HTC One--near perfect, minus this issue I'm having.

I power down the phone completely each night (FAST BOOT IS OFF) to give it a rest. When I wake up, turn it on, check Power, I see that while things like Data weren't on while the phone was off, two categories show a solid line (indicating they were on):
Screen On
Awake

In fact, these two categories have a solid line for the ENTIRE duration the phone is off.

This is also draining my battery a good bit (close to 10%) each overnight. How should I go about correcting this? I've already tried the Factory Reset!








Thank you for your help!

Default widgetlocker delay when waking phone

Hi all,

I'm fairly new to android so bear with me. I recently installed widgetlocker and I've set up my custom lock screen and I can't help but notice that occasionally when I wake my phone, the stock lock screen appears for a few seconds before my custom one does.

Anyone else having this problem? Is there a fix?

Thanks

meek,

sounds like a memory management thing, so lets discuss over here shall we?

what carrier are you on? US or international?

have you rooted your device?

do you use live wallpapers? have a lot of folders/icons and lots of home screens?

all of these things eat up precious resources and if you see a lag when waking up the device, it could be an issue with memory management.

let me ask, prior to installing this app, did you see this behavior with the stock lock screen?

Hi Marc,

Thanks for the reply and apologies for posting in the wrong forum.

I'm on o2, which I imagine would be international.

Yes my device is rooted.

I have about 2 pages worth of icons on my home screen.

and as for the delay, its not so much the delay from when I press the lock button to when the screen light ups. Its a delay in terms of when the custom lock screen appears.

I would of thought that when I installed the custom lock screen it would replace the stock one, but it appears as though the stock lock screen is still present and the custom screen just sits on top of it and occasionally when I press the lock button to wake the phone it would forget to load up and the stock screen will appear briefly before switching to the custom screen...

Did you try just turning off the HTC lock screen from settings > personalise > lock screen style?

I had the same problem with PowerAmp. It has its own lock screen that will show up when you are playing music. sometimes the timing is off, and I end up with the regular lock screen. I can't turn off the stock lock screen, because I WANT that lock screen when I'm NOT playing music. I've pretty much just gotten used to dealing with it and haven't really tried to find a solution to it. At least you have a solution that works. One of these days I'll get around to sending a note to the PowerAmp people and see if they can fix it.

You could set poweramp to disable poweamps lockscreen. Or uncheck the enable option. Leave android lockscreen controls checked. This would leave you with no album art but you would still get music controls on the lock bar above the dock.

Setting should look like this.

Unless album art on lockscreen is really important to you...

Actually, the entire reason I use the PowerAmp lockscreen, is because I don't have to swipe to unlock it when I am playing music. The PowerAmp lockscreen just has a tap to unlock. It is a silly reason. Actually, I had planned on putting Nova Launcher and Widget Locker on it, as I had been using them on my Evo3D forever. I just decided not to mess with the stock experience too much while I learned the ins and outs. Since I am so lazy though, I never bothered to switch once I learned what I wanted. Luckily, the processor and memory are fast enough that it is seldom an issue for me. I mean, I DO like the layout of the PowerAmp lockscreen, which is another plus. Don't really care about album art. Again, it is mostly just laziness that keeps me from switching.

Just wanted to put another app out there that people might see a similar situation, just so people are informed.

Default Internal storage issue?

So I just downloaded an icon pack and an alert popped up telling me I have 2.33mb of internal storage space left. When I go to my settings then select storage, it says I still have over 18gb available of internal storage remaining.

Any idea what could be causing this?

Need more information.

Did you uninstall the file?

What "icon pack" is it?

What's your carrier and which model HTC one do you have?

Are you rooted?

What version of Android?

well if it happened after the pack was installed, uninstalling it should verify if the issue goes away.

if it does, re-install. if the issue comes back, then you know.

That was the issue. Uninstalled then reinstalled and got the same low storage warning. Couldn't even download any other apps. So I deleted it again and tested it on a game download that was 1.08gb and it downloaded just fine. Even tried with 6 more apps and had no issues. And just to check again, I downloaded Goolors again and got the same low storage warning. Weird.







Well damn. Just tried installing Widget Locker and got the warning again. I think something is up with my phone.

See if you can tinker around and get Elixir 2 installed.

Go to info, then tap on your internal storage.

Clear cache.

Then go to Storage Settings - hopefully my HTC isn't too different - and Make more space, clear caches for all apps.

Hope this solves it for you.

Those numbers don't tell the whole story, it's an old Android problem.

Did you clear all of your app caches as well?

Well when I go into manage my apps, the "clear cache" icon isn't highlighted. So I can't select it unless I'm doing something wrong?

Not all apps have a cache and doing it through app management is ok but tedious.

Under your main settings, do you have Storage, and if so, do you have Make more space (or similar) as shown in my second screenshot?

Sorry, but you're on a newer version of Sense than I am, so I have to ask.

I do. But only have the option to delete apps in that menu option

Check out "Clean Master (Cleaner) - FREE"

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cleanmaster.mguard

Please only use the option to clean out junk files to start.

And personally I think that a backup is in order before going further.

Check out "Helium - App Sync and Backup"

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.koushikdutta.backup

You'll be needing to add a bit to your PC if you're not rooted but that's no big deal to get a comprehensive backup happening.

Plus, good idea to backup your pictures, etc etc, from your internal storage.

Then if that problem persists even after Clean Master, you can take your phone to a completely clean state with a factory data reset and then restore your apps and data from the backup.

Yeah, I would.

I checked that app and the dev before recommending but I don't have your exact model, I have last year's.

So I think a backup first just to be on the safe side is your best bet.

I don't think you'll have any trouble with the app.

But I never say never, I'm a backup kind of guy.

I just ended up backing up my photos and wiping the phone. So far so good.

Default Android System using all my mobile data?

Hello All,

I just installed 3G watchdog pro on my HTC One to monitor the data usage on my plan and I noticed that the application "Android System" is using up large chunks of my data. Is there any way to see which features are using all the data and disable them? I have a feeling it would be Blinkfeed running in the background because I don't use any other android processes that require a data connection (at least not to my knowledge).

Thanks in advance for your help.

I played around with a bunch of monitors before I found one that gave a better breakdown .. unfortunately, I don't recall which one I wound up using

So I'd suggest: just try a few other tools - there are quite a few free ones around

You could also try turning off Sync, see if that helps (easiest way is via the Power widget).

Hi, you can ensure BlinkFeed won't use any of your data plan by enabling 'wifi only' in the BlinkFeed update settings.

I tried putting Blinkfeed to Wifi only but the Android System "app" is still chewing through a fair chunk of my data. The strange thing is that 3G watchdog records the usage as being "Sent" instead of "Received". Also note that the usage bar is the light orange (background task) instead of the darker orange like when I was using the Maps app.

Is it possible that android is backing up files from my phone to some server without me knowing about it?

Does your stock usage tool show the same ?.

I check mine now and again. I reckon it's accurate although it doesn't break it down to sent and received.

In this current month (9 days usage) my Android OS app has used 587 kb compared to 8.46 mb used by Maps.
Android OS, HTC Services and Google Services are all about the same usage.

Look at settings > backup & reset. Is it set to back up?

Hi, I don't know whether this will help you, but the HTC stock data logger monitors both mobile data and wifi, and stores the results - I can go back to June when I got my One.

Having checked back, Android OS (assuming that is what your 3g watchdog calls Android System) has never used more than 5% of the total data usage in any period, on either mobile data or wifi and, as you point out, is all background data. The heavy data users are as you would expect - maps and navigation, internet, playstore etc.

(Incidentally, my One shows the Auto daily backup as using wifi only).

It may be worthwhile checking your historic usage if you haven't already done so, compare it to your 3g watchdog results and if there is something amiss you should, hopefully, be able to identify it.

Default Resuming app shows last screen

Hi guys. Had my HTC One for a couple of months, and going to check out all the tips and advice here to get the best out of it.

One question in the meantime, something that really bugs me.

If I've had an app running, and I pause it, as you'll know you can resume it by double tapping the home key to view the recent apps, and selecting the app you want to resume. When I do this, it displays an image taken from the moment the app was last paused, for a good couple of seconds before allowing the app to properly resume itself.

I hate this, and have only ever seen this on HTC One. It makes it look like you can press something when you can't, a really bad user experience. And as a developer, I hate it even more.

What's going on with this? Can it be disabled to behave 'normally'?

Many thanks in advance.

ive seen it on prior htc handsets and i think it started after a certain android os version rather than a handset (it behaves this same way on the one max for example). i have used htc handsets exclusively since 2001 so thats all i know. what you speak of is baked into the ROM and a part of the way sense works.

if you root your device, you may be able to open up other opportunities, but in the stock configuration, there is no way to change this from what I know.

if the app management hasnt dumped/flushed the app from running, that same screen is still going to be there when i tap to go back to the app.

this method has helped me when im, say, trying to read something from an app to transcribe to another app. I can open up the recent apps page there, and visually see what i am trying to copy and it has really helped! I know this is not a "feature" but i take advantage of it when i can..

so no, can't change the behavior the app management uses for that in stock form...

Default Photos & videos hogging memory

I've got an AT&T HTC One and took a look the "Storage" menu from "Settings." It reports that Photos & videos are taking up a whopping 12.87 gigabytes. However, I have only 14.5 megabytes worth of photos on my phone. What on earth would be hogging up 40 percent of my 32GB of storage on this phone and how do I clear out some of it?
