Default General/random questions thread Version 1

It looks like the word "History" is small and fuzzed out at the beginning of the word for whatever reason making me look a little harder for it when I am looking at the screen. I downloaded Rocketdial only to see it missing calls that came in on it's history list that are on the dialer that came with the phone's history list. Am I missing something?

Thanks...

G..

I'm not sure about that but here is something you can try if the font is too small

1. On the Sense dialer screen, press the 3-dot menu button where the key entries show up
2. Select Full screen keypad

Default Strange change in shade notifications

So maybe someone can figure this one out:

From day one, my One's shade notifications only contained the app messaging me (gmail, work, etc) and how many new messages I had.

Suddenly, as of this morning, it shows snippets of the message body itself.

Did I accidentally turn something on? Was something turned off previously? Am I insane?

Probably not.
Could be.
Don't know you well enough to make an accurate assessment. (After all, how can the insane judge the sane? )

My guess is that you're seeing the snippets because there is only a single message rather than multiple. I know my phone shows snippets ONLY when there's a single message of that sort.

Hmmm could be. I guess maybe that's the winning answer for now.

Thanks for the help.

Default [Resolved] Native keyboard not recognizing common words

So here's a weird issue I've encountered. The native keyboard keeps changing simple words to foreign/nonsense words.

Anyone encounter this and have a fix?

Found the issue -go into your HTC keyboard settings. I had other languages chosen along with English, unbeknownst to me. Unselect them. Fixed with no problem.

Default Swype- No auto spacing (Only in email)

So it seems when I am writing an email in the default mail app it is not auto spacing when either composing a new message or replying to an old one. It works fine in texting app and Whatsapp. Even checked the settings to verify it was enabled.


When a word is finished it highlights it in blue like it's waiting for me to possibly correct it. Even if I choose one of the other available words it still does not auto-space


Reset the mail application, reset the phone and I am having the same issue.

thank you for posting.

open a ticket (if you have not already) with HTC. perhaps if enough people submit tickets on this they can include an update.

i use swiftkey exclusively so no issues with that keyboard.

Yes, I am as well, but I normally use the G mail app. So I set it up to test, and find it to be so. Kinda weird. Keep us posted.

I don't email much from my phone, more send links/check email...so doesn't bother me too much. BUT it's still not acceptable. I wonder if it's just the One's version of swype?

Default Issue - Keyboard tone during calls

I'm hoping someone can help me on this issue. Apparently during a call if I pull the phone away from my ear/cheek and then put it back, the person on the other end can hear what they said sounds like the keyboard tone. Just like if you push a number on your keypad. Weird thing is 1) I cant hear this tone on my end and 2) the keyboard isn't even activated.

(This is on my HTC One on Sprint... need to change my device to HTC One)

thanks!

what is "keyboard tone"?

do you mean the alphabet keyboard like swype or the "qwerty" keyboard or do you mean the phone dial pad?

does this happen to other callers or just one caller?

is your screen ON when this happens? does your screen turn on and off when you move away/to it? (the sensor makes this happen)

do you use a screen protector? is it in a case?

maybe some silly questions but need to get a good idea on your setup since we can seee it.

Sounds like a cheek dial to me Marc. Maybe the proximity sensor isn't turning the screen off fast enough when the phone is brought back to their face?

I know on my phone when the dialer is in landscape the proximity sensors don't work at all. I'll cheek dial like crazy.

Does the stock One have landscape dialer capability?

Welcome to the forum Regar
This is normal behavior. My ears have observed this as a caller and as a person taking a call on prior HTC phones. Has happened for me as far back as a Samsung flip phone about 8 years ago. (Sprint network as well)

When the screen is re-activated (either through proximity sensor/ambient light sensor or hardware key), with a call connected, there can be a momentary blip of RF interference across the call for some reason.

No relation to the keyboard, except that maybe the interference has a frequency that can maybe sound a little bit like a touch tone to the person on the other end of the call. This frequency could sound different for different phones, whether the noise can be heard could also depend on the network band of both phones.

My old Samsung flip, I used to be able to send/receive texts with other people while on a call. If you sent a text whilst on a call it created an RF blip across the live line as well, and would make the person you are on the call with wonder what in the world was going on.

I suppose the One could be different, and maybe it actually does send a real tone across and it is not just RF Interference, but the only way to test the theory is to experiment.

do you use a screen protector? is it in a case? Yes, and Yes

other thing to add... per the other response, I have had 2 other HTC phones, the Hero and Evo, and neither did this.

Strange behavior indeed. I mean if the caller hears the tone then you should hear the tone also, if we are talking about the phone dialer.

Also, as suggested, if your sensor is working then the screen is turning off and no touch tone sounds should be output.

Verify your screen is actually off and see if the tones present themselves again...

Marc,

A little more info as I have been playing around. I'm wondering if its not an issue with my Airave from Sprint. My wife is home as well so I called her phone. That means I placed the call and she answered through our Airave at home. I moved it around and she heard no beeps/tones/etc.

I then called a friend who is not here (and of course not on my Airave) and he can hear the tones. He said it "beeps" twice with a sound like the tones on the dial pad the moment I pull the phone from my cheek. I confirmed also that my phone seems to act normally when I put the phone to my cheek (screen shuts off) and comes back on when I pull it away with the person I'm talking to's name and phone number showing.

Default Can we get the gs4 keyboard & better folder icons?

Is there anyway to get the gs4 keyboard.apk or anything similar with the row of numbers at the top without rooting?

also are there any really good apps for creating folders and being able to change the icon or look of them. im normally not that superficial but i like to have my phone icon open up a folder with the phone icon and contacts and htcs folders look really dumb when there are less than four icons in a folder

From Samsung Galaxy S4 Review (Video) | MobileSyrup.com

Quote:
- The Galaxy S4′s keyboard, despite being powered by SwiftKey, is nowhere near as good as SwiftKey proper. This boggles my mind, as there was every opportunity to make this the truly best native keyboard on an Android phone, but alas, you’re still going to want to download a third party keyboard.
I use SwiftKey, you can try before you buy - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.touchtype.swiftkey.phone.trial

I also use Hackers Keyboard, it's free - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.pocketworkstation.pckeyboard

Neither requires root.

If you really want to go to town on folders and icons, and don't mind losing Blinkfeed and your HTC widgets, go with Nova launcher - root not required.

You can theme and change your entire icon setup, there are lots of free and paid options on that. Search the Play Store for Nova and you'll find the launcher and endless pages of add-ons.

Default White Screen Flickering

Hi,

Well this is odd as I can't find the original thread on this site pertaining to my subject line. I was at the local ATT Store here in Seattle earlier today and we did find a thread on this subject. Now, however, I can't find it so please excuse if this is a second post on the matter.

In short, my new HTC One phone kicks a fair amount of butt but what does not kick butt is the fact that when I am viewing a .PDF with an all white background or using a browser and the web page background is all white or if I am reading a Word .DOC the screen will kind of shimmer and shake.

I took it into the local shop and they turned off auto brightness, which helped a tad, and then they suggested I turn of power save mode. The later helped the most but what bums me out is this new, otherwise awesome phone, has to run in non powersave mode so I can not see this shimmering affect.

From what I read earlier others are experiencing this issue. Please chime in with what you have experienced and hopefully the good folks at HTC can issue a patch soon to address this.

Thanks,

Johnny Fever.

hello,

people "chiming in" here will not fix the problem. a ticket needs to be made into HTC directly.

if you have not already done so, send htc an email and get a ticket started. share the ticket number here and when others see/experience this, they too can call in or submit a ticket. the more people who talk to HTC directly the sooner a fix will be made.

HTC do not read these forums.

All that said, ive a stock non rooted sprint model and i have the same flicker/gradual dim issue. i never ever use power save and the issue was happening from day one. I have seen reports of this on another forum but not much activity was in that thread.

using swype or an on screen keyboard will make it more pronounced as well.

Mine was flickering right out of the box since auto brightness comes configured to be on (Power Saver options may come configured on too). I was in a room with a bare incandescent overhead light bulb and an off white wall directly behind me.
I NEVER use power saver and I immediately turned off Auto brightness and went to full brightness, as always part of my initial set up, and I haven't really seen any significant flickering since. Though I haven't had alot of time actually using the device.

I think auto brightness was being over active and trying to over correct the screen brightness based on the lighting level of the white wall behind me.

Throw me into this bowl of problems. I have the same issue. I just switch to my Swiftkey keyboard for a second and then switch back and everything is fine. It's still very frustrating.

Swift key is nice but I'm just looking for the row of numbers era above the keyboard. And as far as redoing folders I've used nova for almost as long as it has been out. I'd like to see if I can keep blink feed

Default Clock Screen Saver

Many of my previous Android devices had a program to perpetually show the clock on the screen as if it were a screen saver. I am not seeing this functionality. Is there an option on the device for this? It used to be near the alarm settings. Not looking to download an app for this. It would be nice if we could get something like this if it does not exist The app would have a black background for power savings and just plain white numbers for displaying the time.

i use swiftkey and set the delay to something like 250ms to activate the alt keys.
you get a good sized kb and you save screen real estate.
if you really have to input a lot of numbers, just use num lock.

I have passwords with numbers and letters, it would be nice if I don't have to switch between numbers and chars frequently. Will look at swiftkey too.

I do too and the option of setting the long press delay was the main reason I got swiftkey.
it's great and you won't even think twice to long press after a few tries at it.

Well, I just wanted to check back in and say that my HTC One is humming right along now that I have turned off PowerSave Mode. Since that has been off I haven't noticed any issues with this flicker on a white background.

Also, I should note here that HTC Support has been very nice and helpful. I think I am just going to email them back and say I am good to go.

Hope this helps someone else out who may have been experiencing this issue. It's a great phone.

turning off auto brightness should also help. I suspect this is a bug though and hopefully will be fixed in a future MR...

^^^^
This.

FWIW, I stumbled across a way to force the flickering:

I have HOLO LAUNCHER HD installed,but, this can likely be simulated w/any aftermarket launcher.

Anyhoo,I enjoy using BLINKFEED,but,the stock SENSE desktop/drawer leave a lot to be desired,so, I created a shortcut to go directly from SENSE Desktop to the HOLO LAUNCHER HD app drawer & more often than not, the flickering started, only while in the app drawer & would continue until I exited the HOLO LAUNCHER HD app drawer. A second shortcut from SENSE Desktop to HOLO LAUNCHER HD Desktop didn't have the flickering, just the shortcut from SENSE to HOLO HD app drawer. At no other time do I have this flickering.

Just wanted to share this in hopes that it is indeed a software glitch that'll be addressed as marctronixx eluded to.

Default Remove bloatware/app disable (some items may be carrier specific)

I know you can disable some apps, which ones are safe to do so?

Default HTC ONE APP Disabling

As a rule,if you can disable an app,it shouldn't* have any ill effects on other apps.

It's actually a nice compromise of having the option,as you can't really hurt anything.

*If you do see some undesirable effects,just work backward from the previous apps that you disabled until everything is running as desired once again.

EDIT: Just to clarify,we are speaking only of disabling apps,not deletion of apps,on a stock un-rooted phone.

Finally got mine, stumbling thru best as I can. I'm on Sprint. I don't even see its possible to delete Facebook or Twitter which I don't use. Is this carrier specific or am I just missing something? With my music and the apps I've downloaded already I have about 6 gigs left. I will use OTG for movies but want to get rid of anything possible to save space. Thanks in advance.
