Troubleshooting/Help  - 
 
I'm having some serious charging speed consistency issues with my 5X. I've had it less than a week, and no matter what charger I use, including the stock charger, I can get anywhere from discharging at 700+mA to charging at 2000mA, often within the same charge. Sometimes unplugging and replugging improves it, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it charges nice and quickly, sometimes it's clearly getting nowhere over an extended time period.

Any tips?

The more I read, the less sure of that I am. Major XDA thread, among others, that indicates that thing thing throttles early and hard on the charging speed. The temperature DOES appear to be over 38c pretty much every time it charges slowly, which is constantly. So unless it's defective in that it gets hot too fast, this may be "normal."

Anyone else having trouble maintaining a connection to Android Wear on the dev preview? Mine is disconnecting constantly. Not sure if it's worth it to wipe (I did the OTA from Marshmallow) or if this is a common issue.

Turned out to be bigger Bluetooth issues. Happened any time connected to my headset or car, and music playback would constantly flail. Gave up and went back to Marshmallow for now.

Honestly, it looks like the rising or setting sun to me. Those look like their tiny arms, not table legs.

Really bang-up job there, Samsung. Declining a feature that's not vital to the system's functionality shouldn't be this hard.

+Android Police should take interest in this.

Woke up with the chorus to this in my head, yet the song isn't that familiar once I tracked it down and played the whole thing. But I love the hell out of it.

Honestly, the best part of this place as a hotel is its price. It was dramatically cheaper than a lot of the alternatives and included free parking. We paid for a classic room and got upgraded to the tower rooms, which are supposedly much newer and nicer. They're still pretty old-looking and oddly laid-out, but the stay was comfortable enough. As far as gambling, we didn't do any on our most recent visit, but did so the previous time, coming here specifically due to their reputation for having the best Blackjack in Vegas, with the best player odds available, with tables that don't participate in all the newer flashy alterations that work against the player.

Friendly, helpful staff greeted us and made our check-in very easy. Our room was perfectly accessible, and once in it we were very impressed with the size and accommodations. The back door opened onto a gigantic lawn with an incredible view of the mountainside. The living room and bedroom are each equipped with a TV and DirecTV (in case you care while you're at the entrance to Zion), and there's a microwave and mini-fridge (with tiny freezer compartment). About the only complaint is the odd bathroom layout where shower and toilet are in their own room, and the sink is in the bedroom and shared with the kitchen. Presents some awkward privacy concerns and movement between. Shower curtain was mounted too high as well, making it hard to keep in the tub. Also, electrical outlets are few and far between except on one side of the bed, and lighting is very dim in most fixtures. But those are nitpicks. Overall, service is great. They even leave you a goodie bag of everything they would have replenished in your hotel if you hadn't left the DND sign up. Really thoughtful. Laundry facilities on-site as well, with two coin-op washers and dryers next to the ice machine and outdoor pool.

Fun environment for kids, with lots of colorful distractions, some arcade machines, rides, balloons, treats, etc. Great staff knows kids and parents well.

As with every In-N-Out, seating and wait times are bad. But the food, as always, is right in track. Delicious.

Clean, nicely furnished, friendly staff, and a surprisingly great free breakfast. Decent gym, but tiny indoor pool.

Clean, well-organized, and helpful staff. Sign up for the credit card and then ignore the monthly mailers with random discount amounts and look online instead. You can get a consistent 30% off, which is often stackable with other "$x off of $x purchase or more” deals.

The atmosphere and image are fantastic here, with lots of very fun rides. But their fast pass system is incredibly expensive and the only way to get in a decent number of rides in a day. Lines are excessive and poorly managed, and staff is often not especially thoughtful about how they handle problems. Pretty good food options. Bathrooms aren't great, though. Definitely a mid-step between Six Flags and Magic Mountain in overall quality.
