    Battery Replacement

    I have loved everything about my N6 since I bought it almost two years ago, with one exception. The battery life has never been great and has deteriorated over time. Perhaps this is because I charge the phone mostly on a wireless pad. About a year ago, I paired the phone to a smartwatch. The...

    Help Android 7.x OTA for the N6

    It popped up about an hour ago in my notifications. I run my stock N6 on Sprint in suburban Dallas. The OTA install went smoothly. The only glitch was that 43 apps from Amazon had to be individually reinstalled.

    Cannot Connect to Watch

    I have a Nexus 6 and a LG Watch Urbane, both stock. They have been paired since birth, until yesterday. Since my phone got the April update via OTA, neither device finds the other on Bluetooth. I have hard booted both devices, twice. No bueno! I think that I have solved the problem, by doing a...

    Mediaserver s Killing My Battery !!

    I have a stock N6 running on Sprint. I left it untouched on my desk, with 100% power, for about 4 hours. When I picked up, it was at 6%! The cause appears to be something called Mediaserver. I haven't seen this before. It appears to be a service, not an app. Can anyone enlighten me on how to...

    Battery Life Improvement when using Google Photos

    Several months ago, I got a LG Watch Urbane and paired it with my N6. It was a good marriage, but always-on Bluetooth caused a real dip in my N6 battery life. I never could find a solution, until today. It turns out that a big battery killer is the Google Photos app, which syncs to the cloud...

    Help OTA update Issues/troubleshooting

    I got the OTA last night and almost immediately found a minor issue. I use the Simple Analog Clock widget on an alternate home screen. With a seconds hand, it is useful for frequently setting my Rolex watch (Rolex makes watches that are expensive jewelry but lousy timekeepers). After upgrading...

    Cut Your Bill In Half !!

    I have been with Verizon for more than a decade and kept my Droid Bionic for 3+ years because I didn't want to give up my grandfathered plan. For about $70/month (plus taxes and fees), I got 300 minutes of voice, 250 texts, and unlimited data. But I was not a happy Verizon customer. Inside my...

    Help How to Crank Up the Volume after JB ??

    The TF700T has always been a pretty quiet tablet. My solution was to run Equalizer in the background with across-the-board +15dB settings. That made the tablet loud enough for me, but it ended with Jelly Bean. The Equalizer app still runs, but it no longer seems to do anything. Does anyone...

    Help 4.2.1 has killed Google Search and Google Now on my Stock TF700T !!

    Google Search and Google Now both worked fine before the recent update. Now, neither works. A simple search for something like "Margaret Thatcher" spins for 20-30 seconds and then dumps back to the home screen with no results. Is anyone else having this issue? Does anyone have any solutions...

    Help Screenshots in JB ??

    My Bionic used to take screenshots using Volume Rocker + Power Button. Since upgrading to 4.0.4, my (stock) Bionic no longer takes screenshots. Does anyone else have this problem? Does anyone have a work-around?

    ICS Stock Browser - Quick Controls

    I first got ICS on my Asus TF101 early last summer. The stock browser had Quick Controls, which I grew to really like. Then I moved to ICS Browser+, because it had enhanced and customizable Quick Controls. When I upgraded to my Asus TF700T, I stuck to ICS Browser+. A few weeks ago, that...

    My Bionic is Vulnerable to the New USSD Exploit, How About Yours ??

    You can check by reading the article at the link below and clicking on the test link in Paragraph #1. My phone, which is stock, failed the test. Phones running the various leaks will probably fail too (someone please confirm). So, now we need three Moto OTAs: ICS, JB, and an USSB Exploit...

    Help Face Unlock Option Missing ??

    On my TF101, I got Face Unlock to run after deleting all certificates. Then the option showed up in Security, I selected and configured it, and it ran very well. On my TF700T, the Face Unlock option is not shown in Security, even after all certificates have been deleted. Does anyone have Face...

    Help Initial Questions

    I have now had my TF700T for all of four days. I have it fully configured and have re-installed more than 400 apps (be cautious of EA apps as they don't want to download their data files). It runs great and I am happy with everything except the battery life. I will be even happier when the...

    Possible Simple Solution for 4G Data Drops !!

    I have been very frustrated with my unreliable (sometimes on, but mostly off) 4G data service for the past 2-3 weeks. It was getting worse every day. This morning, I couldn't hold 4G (or even 3G) for more than a minute or two between data drops. My efforts last week installing a new SIM card...

    Not loud enough?

    I've had my TF101 for about a year now. One early issue for me was sound, or more precisely, the inability to crank up the volume. My initial solution was to download and install a free app, "Equalizer". Eventually, it caused my HC tablet to become unstable, so I uninstalled it. Now I have...

    It has been quite some time since I updated to ICS 4.0.3. Prior to the update, my stock TF101 was completely stable. Since the update, my home screen periodically goes blank. The shortcuts and widgets all disappear. Even the new app drawer shortcut goes away. I am left with only the...

    Help ICS 4.03 Bugs

    For the most part, I really like Android 4.03 on my TF101. ICS brings a much faster browser and spell-checking for the keyboard dock. However, there are several annoying bugs that I have not yet found solutions for: 1] When returning to the home screen from some apps or even from the...
