    Navigator is an easy-to-use voice-aware interface for use when driving.
    Latitude is a geolocation app to share your location with, and track that of friends.
    Maps is optimised for handheld use and offers.

    Different uses, different interfaces. They're all using the Maps app, but in different ways.

    What is the issue?

    The issue is the phone takes too much attention and has way too many options in all the wrong places. And not enough options where it counts.

    Not trying to troll here. Really frustrated because I like the phone. The crappy mms, useless apps. And inability to easily turn off this battery thing have killed it for me.

    Like I said. Useless crap.

    You said

    then replied to my explanation of why these seemingly-identical apps exist with

    Not a particularly gracious reply, you must admit. :mad:

    You've stated your issues. I and others tried to help you with them. I'm sorry if that's not good enough for you, but at the end of the day we're only fellow-users like you. If the handset isn't to your liking then it's best you exchange it for one that is, rather than persevere and become even more frustrated.

    OK. I decided to give the thing a real effort. Rooted the phone, renamed the battery notification and disabled a bunch of other processes. The phone is a beast now and I love it. Battery life seems improved but most of that drain is the screen. Its certainly a faster quieter device.

    Up next is a better messaging platform.

    LOL. Great thread and I happen to 100% agree with 33t. All you folks who are trying to "help" are really argueing or justifying "bloat".

    Really??? Do you folks work for Samsung or something and are trying to justify your dev jobs?

    Three different apps for maps service??? Why not just consolidate to one and design a slicker UI?

    I am guessing some of this is why Samsung has decided to let Google control the next Android delivery in the Galaxy Nexus.

    I am really hoping for a one-shot app that just eliminates this notification altogether. Internally, I would expect it to just patch the lowest level binaries where this code exists. I'd even pay a dollar for it. I bet some Android gurus could make some money with such an app.

    Anothing nice thing would be a decrapifier. Guess I just need to dive in and root it. Was thinking of waiting for ICS, but since I just jumped to Android yesterday (from a jailbroken iphone 3gs), I am still green, at least to Android.

    Really? And you base that on exactly how much experience? ;)

    Nice attitude you've got there for a newcomer. We happen to be ordinary users who try to help each other.

    Because a UI optimised for car navigation would be rubbish for using as a handheld reference device. It's still Maps doing the work, just as Latitude is simply an add-on to it. Don't like or need them? Ignore them and use the basic Maps.

    Wrong way round.... Google chose Samsung as the hardware partner for the Galaxy Nexus. They call the shots with the Nexus series.

    This thread has been quiet for a while, but I'll offer this simple solution for bloat: do what I did and stick all that bloatware in a folder. It took me a few hours of tinkering with the Galaxy S2 I purchased yesterday, but now it is almost as svelte *without rooting* as my old HTC Magic which ran a much more vanilla version of Android.

    No, the bloatware on this phone is not from 2.3; it's from Samsung. Personally I hate it. It was relatively quick and easy to shove it all in a folder (plus the other built-in icons I never use, like Phone and News & Weather) and now I have three very tidy screens of apps.

    I do agree that the contact management on this and similar Samsung phones is absolute crap. I don't want to merge anything from different accounts; just give me my Google 'My Contacts' list and be done with it. The one annoyance I have found with contacts is that there is no way to search *all* of your Google contacts; search only goes through the contact groups you have selected to display on the phone. On my old phone I was given the option to search all contacts after an initial contact group search failed.

    As for the battery charged notification, I'm hoping for help here from Locale. I've emailed the dev and will share if/when I get something useful back.

    Samsung is likely telling us to unplug the device when charged for liability purposes. Everyone is suing everyone so this would help with Samsung's liability in case of FIRE! If you read the manual you are also "supposed" to unplug your charger, too. How many of us do that. For that matter MOST of our electronics will tell you, int eh manual, to unplug everything when not in use!

    Just ignore the warning. The fully charged sound is not that loud that it would wake up the average person and that is the best Samsung can do. You just can not make everyone happy

    This is a great phone.

    From the XDA Developers Forum, I have implemented the following solution successfully on my Samsung Galaxy S Epic 4G (with GingerBread.EI22), which has eliminated the "Battery fully charged. Unplug charger" notification from my phone. Good Luck! :)

    I implemented a simpler version using Tasker. Previously, the battery full notification didn't bother me as I had a Tasker night profile on that silenced the phone when on charge during the night, but I recently bought the Power Pack charge case which kept causing the phone to notify me that it's fully charged and turning on the screen in the process (and running down the battery that it's meant to conserve, in the process).

    To fix this I did the following:-

    1. Using a rooted phone, rename the OGG file for the notification sound:-

    Using Root Browser app, I navigated to system\media\audio\ui and renamed the tw_battery_caution.ogg file to tw_battery_caution.bak

    2. Setup a Tasker profile called "Unlocked", that upon the Display Unlocked event will set the custom variable %Unlocked to "1".

    3. Setup a Tasker profile called "Locked", that upon Display Off event will set the custom variable %Unlocked to "0".

    4. Setup a Tasker profile called "Battery Full", that upon Battery Full event will activate the System Lock action. It'll prompt you to allow Tasker to be a device administrator when the System Lock action is added. System Lock basically will turn the screen off. An "if" condition is added for the action that checks that %Unlocked is "0" before carrying out System Lock, otherwise the screen will turn off when you're using the phone.

    This seems to work for me, and also enables my Power Pack to report fully charged status (blue LED). Previously, when the screen was activating it would never report itself as fully charged, so I guess the notification was draining the battery (ironically).

    PS. I wanted to use a built in Tasker variable to check that the screen was not unlocked, but couldn't find a reliable one, hence the reason for the Unlocked and Locked profiles. If anyone has a good way to get rid of these, I would be grateful. :cool:

    I disagree with you. My husband is a light sleeper and the sound/light from the full battery notification wake him up. The BEST that Samsung could do would be to make the notification customisable, not to lock it down to one action of a wake/sound event on the phone.

    Samsung CAN make everyone happy by providing options! I'll be glad to try out some of the tweaks in this forum - but for now, my phone gets turned off at night.

    If you are rooted, you can use JKay 's Deluxe Settings and disable the battery full notification.

    I cannot see how anyone can justify this appalling design. I too use my phone as an alarm clock. I've only had this phone one night and it woke me up.

    Has anyone got a sensible solution to this nightmare?

    Get an extra battery and the charging stand/box thing I'm afraid.
    You attach it to the end of the charging cable, official Samsung GS2 product.

    I heard some thing about Li-Ion batteries draining rapidly by themselves when not in a phone but I think it's rubbish, will find out soon as I have what is said to be an actual genuine battery on the way.

    I have a question maybe someone can answer:

    I have had the Samsung Transform since it was released back in October 2010. My husband has been complaining about that darned "Full battery/unplug charger" beep overnight for a while now.

    Here's what I want to know: Did this stupid, usless, irritating beep get added with the last android software update or something? My phone never had this issue before. I've had to reset it to factory status recently because it got so bogged down with all of the 2 games the grandkids play one it (honestly, if it can't handle a couple of apps!) and since that restart, it's been annoying with this full battery beep. Was it not there before or is it just me?

    Since the ICS update my phone no longer makes the fully charged indication sound.

    If you want to disable the battery warnings (either charge or battery empty).
    Download the free app 'audio manager' . Just set warnings to volume 0.

    It works pretty good. You can also buy the app and get profile for volume settings.
