Post by Admin on Fri Sep 11, 2015 5:06 pm

Android Phones can cause problems
which seem too complex to handle at
the time but their solutions are really
simple. Here are the solutions to the
most common android phone problems
that users have encountered: 1. My Android phone has
frozen You just need to restart your phone to
kickstart a frozen android phone. 2. My smartphone Wi-Fi
does not remain
connected This may solve the problem. Just go to
Wi-Fi > Settings > Menu > Advanced
and choose to stay connected to Wi-Fi
during sleep. 3. Why do I keep running
out of memory? Among other reasons, the most
prominent problem can be a full cache
which affects the efficient running of
apps. You can download apps like
Cache Cleaner or Clean Master from
Google Play to clean the cache for specific apps. This will free up some
memory to resolve the issue. You will
also have to either uninstall or move
apps to an external SD card to free up
more physical memory. 4. My SD card is no
longer recognised SD cards can get corrupted and the
most effective solution is to reformat
them using a desktop or laptop PC. It
works more often than trying to format
it on the phone itself. 5. My screen is difficult
to see in bright sunlight You can increase screen brightness to
maximum or use ‘anti-glare’ screen
protector to see the screen in bright
sunlight. 6. How do I remove
apps? Go to Settings > Applications >
Manage Applications and then select
the app you wish to uninstall. Now tap
the Uninstall icon to remove the app. 7. My screen has
cracked! Should I buy a
new phone? Cracked screens can be replaced as
most phones have parts available from
various suppliers both online and
offline. Do your research before buying
a new phone. 8. Entering my password
takes forever! Go to Settings > Security > Set up
screen lock > choose enter a pattern
rather than a password. Pattern is
quicker and securer than a password. 9. My location is not
always accurate in maps Go to Settings > Location > check
‘Use GPS satellites’ and this will
ensure much greater accuracy when
navigating. 10. How do I wipe my
Android smartphone
completely? Go to Settings > SD & Phone storage
> Factory Data Restore. Go through
the process twice to be completely
sure that everything has been
removed. 11. I dropped my phone
in water! Take the battery out as quickly as
possible and dry as many parts of the
phone as you can then leave it for 72
hours in a dry room. Try it again, it
may work. 12. Can I make the text
on my Android
smartphone bigger? Go to message settings and use ‘Set
text size’ option to increase the size of
the displayed text. 13. Can I update my apps
automatically? Go to Google Play > Menu > ‘My Apps’
> select an app and choose auto-
update option for trusted apps only.
This option can be seen half-way down
the screen. 14. I want to hide my
search history. Go to www.google.com/history in your
Android browser and login. Here you
can choose to remove your previous
searches and not to save future
searches. 15. How do I take
screenshots? Some smartphones will let you press
the back key and the home button
twice to take screenshots but the
method varies for different android
phone models. 16. How do I download
music directly to my
phone or tablet? You can install Amazon MP3 from
Google Play which lets you purchase
and install MP3 files directly to your
phone without the need of a PC. 17. Some apps won’t
install to my SD card You may be able to move apps to an
SD card using Settings > Manage
Applications after installating the app
in the phone memory. 18. How can I change the
language on my phone? Go to Settings > Language & keyboard
and choose the language you require. 19. Can I remove pre-
installed apps on my
phone? You can, but the process will require
rooting the device and then
downloading an app called Root
Uninstaller. This can make your phone
unstable and the amount of memory
saved will not be worth it. 20. Can I speed up my
Android phone? There are apps available such as
SetCPU which will let you speed up
your phone through overclocking the
processor. It will also let you slow
down the processor to save memory.
However, you need to be careful because you may end up frying your
phone if you push it above the set
maximum speed. 21. What’s the best way
to backup my phone? There are multiple solutions available
to backup an Android phone and
Titanium Backup PRO is considered to
be one of the best solutions available.
This app has the ability to backup
every part of your phone and even export the backups through email or
sync them to Dropbox. 22. How can I stop
viruses from attacking
my phone? You can download anti-virus
applications such as Kaspersky Mobile
Security or AVG which offer real-time
protection against a host of threats. 23. The volume on my
phone is too quiet If your Android phone suffer from low
volume then you can download
AudioBoost from the Android market.
It can increase the volume up to 30%
and is also activated from home
screen widget. 24. The Live Wallpaper
uses too much battery
life The simple solution is to use a static
wall paper instead. 25. My clock keeps losing
time. This problem can occur if your phone’s
clock updates time automatically from
your network. If the network clock is
slow, so will be your phone clock. Go
to Settings > Date & time > untick the
‘Automatic’ box at the top. 26. Can I block unwanted
callers? If your network provider does not offer
this facility then you can download
Extreme Call Blocker Droid. This app
can block incoming calls but it is not
the cheapest Android app available.
You can explore other apps on the market too. 27. My phone is slow at
times. Are there any
tools to help? You can make your phone fast if
you remove all unnecessary apps and
data you do not need. An app like
System Tuner Pro can tune many
parts of your phone automatically to
ensure the best possible performance. 28. My phone has been
stolen. Can I track it? You can install a third party app to
help track your phone if it gets stolen.
PhoneLocator Pro can remotely track
a phone using GPS as well as let you
wipe or lock the phone. 29. Why can’t I use
iTunes with my Android
device? You can use iTunes with doubleTwist
AirSync which lets you synchronise
media between iTunes and an Android
phone or tablet without a physical
connection. However, you won’t be
able to access DRM protected media. 30. How do I close an app
that keeps freezing my
phone? Go to Settings > Applications >
‘Manage applications’. Now choose the
app that is misbehaving from the list
and tap ‘Force stop’. If the app
continues to misbehave try to uninstall
and then reinstall it. 31. Can I close running
apps quickly? You can use the default task manager
in Android to deal with running apps. It
also lets you manage all of your
running apps with a couple of taps. 32. Why does auto-
correct not know all the
words I need to use? Auto-correct cannot possibly know all
the words but you can add new ones
quickly and easily. When you type a
word, look for the ‘+’ sign below the
text field, tap it and the word will be
added to your dictionary for future use. The more words you add, the more
accurate your typing will become. 33. Switching between
keyboards takes forever! Simply press and hold the ‘123’ button
on the keyboard. You will be given the
list of all the keyboards installed from
where you can choose the desired one
in just about a second. 34. Why does my screen
turn off when charging? Go to Settings > Applications >
Development and check the ‘Stay
awake’ option to keep the screen on
during charging. 35. Can I reinstall a paid
app? You can reinstall a paid app from the
Android Market. Go to ‘My Market
Account’ > orders tab which include a
list of the purchased apps. You can
choose an app and then tap ‘Install’ to
complete the process. Google Play does not charge you for reinstalling an
app. 36. How do I know if I
have the latest version of
Android on my phone? Go to Settings > About phone >
‘System software updates’ > click
‘Check now’. You will be notified if any
new updates are available or all the
updates have already been installed on
your phone.
