OnePlus will keep warranty intact even for rooted OnePlus 2 units

With the OnePlus One, the company announced a new policy which meant that even rooted units would get warranty support. And with the 2nd gen model going live earlier yesterday, there was some confusion over whether the company will have the same policy.

And we’re pleased to report that the OnePlus 2 will come with warranty support even if it’s rooted, which is excellent news for future customers of the device, especially for the tinkerers among us. It must be reiterated that OnePlus will not fix your device under warranty if the root or the bootloader unlocking was responsible for the issue in the first place, so proceed with caution before flashing custom ROMs on the device.

The OnePlus 2 will be available for purchase August 11, assuming you have an invite. The smartphone is packing a 5.5 inch 1080p display, an octa core Snapdragon 810 SoC, a 13-megapixel camera on the back, a 5-megapixel front camera, 3/4GB of RAM, 16/64GB of internal storage, Android 5.1 Lollipop with Oxygen OS and a 3,300 mAh battery with 4G LTE connectivity.

Motorola Has Announced The New Moto X Style, Moto X Play, and Moto G

In an interesting move that no one probably had guessed, Motorola has announced three new phones, being the Moto X Style, Moto X Play, and the 3rd generation Moto G.

The Moto X Style (which will go by Moto X Pure Edition in the US) is Motorola’s top-tier flagship for 2015, with some of the best specs lately, yet at a price far below other flagships such as the LG G4 or Galaxy S6, as it starts at $399 unlocked.

The Moto X Play will be available for countries that are not the US and Motorola says it will cost between $400-$500. Meanwhile, the Moto G will be available globally and start at just $179. Here is a full breakdown of the three devices.

Moto X Style

This is Motorola’s top-tier flagship, at least for the US. It has universal support for all four of the major US carriers, meaning it can do LTE on AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and even Verizon. It has a 5.7″ 5.7″ QHD display, a 21MP rear shooter, a Snapdragon 808 processor, and 3 GB of RAM.

The device also has a 3,000mAh non-removable battery, up to 64 GB of onboard storage, and support for a microSD card up to 128GB in size. The device runs near-stock Android, with just apps like Moto Assist onboard. The front-facing camera is 5MP and there is also a front-mounted flash. NFC is onboard, for those of you that will be using Android Pay when it launches later this year. Turbo charging is onboard as well, and Motorola claims that the Style charges faster than the S6.

The Moto X Style will be available directly from Motorola, Best Buy, and Amazon. There will be no carrier involvement, so once you buy the device from Motorola, it has been paid and all you will need is a SIM card. The Moto X Style (Pure Edition in the US) will cost $399 and will be available in September.

Moto X Play

This device is a mid-ranger by the specs, but it has excellent ones. It has a 5.5″ 1080p display, a 21MP rear-facing camera, a microSD card slot, and 4G LTE connectivity. All this is running atop a Snapdragon 615 processor, 2 GB of RAM, and a 3,630mAh battery.

The Moto X Play also features water resistance, meaning it can take a splash, but should not be submerged for very long. While this device is not coming to the US, Motorola has said that more choices will be available to US consumers in the fall, which is most likely new Droids.

Moto G (3rd Generation)

Once again, Motorola has improved on their cheapest handset. The new device has a 5″ 720p HD display, a Snapdragon 410 processor, 13MP rear-facing camera, a 2,470mAh battery, and IPX7 water resistance. For the first time, the Moto G also has support for certain LTE networks, letting you get faster data. Motorola will also be offering Moto Maker for the Moto G for the first time, letting anyone change the style of the device.

The new Moto G is available starting today at just $179 unlocked and will be available at Best Buy starting August 2nd. This is one of the best cheap phones you can get, and can make a great first-time smartphone or be an excellent gift.

With all of these devices and new ones coming, Motorola will probably have a pretty good quarter. It remains to be seen if the lack of selling the devices through carriers will hurt the devices, but at the prices, they’re hard to beat.

Problem # 1: Samsung Galaxy S6 is not charging properly and battery drains fast

 

Hi. I have the Samsung Galaxy S6.  I got it in and it has been a very frustrating few months. First of all, within the first week I noticed the fast charger of yours was charging, then not charging, charging, then not. All while it was on a shelf and not being touched. A month in, the phone stopped recognizing the charger as the “provided charger for faster charging”.  The guy at Verizon said it was just a software update problem. He assured me it was still charging just as fast. Well a few weeks later, once plugged in, it only went up a few percentages over the next few hours. After a week, I had to get a new sim card. Talk about it buffering right out of the box! I wanted to run and get a new kind of phone just one week in. Luckily the new card was better. So I have a bum charger and a new card (that card didn’t stop it from freezing all the time though). I just read about the hard reset which I’ll try next time but why is a brand new, very expensive phone freezing like this? Finally, a few weeks ago, my phone had about a 45% charge. I was playing a game and there was no warning on how much battery juice I used up. The phone went from being nearly half charged to a complete black out. After that it would not charge (with any cord) at all. It was completely dead and there’s no change for the rest of the night. It wasn’t till the next morning that the phone responded to a charge. I’m doing what troubleshooting you’ve recommended and including resetting it to factory settings as the guy on my third trip back to Verizon told me to do. Losing apps, games and more though not happily. I’m so disappointed. I excitedly switched from iPhone back to Android. I did a lot of research! I was so stoked to get this phone! It’s had so many problems it’s making me wish I could go back to Apple. Something I never thought could happen. I will do all your troubleshooting and hope for the best but it all just makes me want to scream. Thank you for reading my rant. — Kelly Musson

 

Solution: Hello Kelly. That must have been a very frustrating situation to go through. What with the multiple issues you have with your phone. I want to clarify something though. After you did the hard reset, did it function properly again or not? A hard reset can resolve all firmware and app related issues but it can’t do anything when it comes to hardware malfunctions. Certainly it can fix the freezing issue as this may have something to do with the firmware or a corrupt application. Setting it back to its factory state is a good move. Regarding the battery performance and charging issues though, I assume you have already tried all the basic troubleshooting necessary including taking the battery out for a few minutes? Have you tried installing a battery app to help diagnose its performance? You can find various apps on the Google Play Store. I would recommend Battery Doctor as it can give you a full overview of your battery’s performance as well as tells you what’s eating up your battery juice and regulates the manner in which your device is charged. I’m positive the charging port is still working as it charged again after that small episode of it not taking the charge. The explanation for that is when a battery is completely drained, it will take some time for it to react to the charging. Just leave it connected to the charger even if…

High-Res Pictures Of The Galaxy Note 5 Have Appeared

There is no stopping the phone leaks lately. After the OnePlus 2 and the Moto G have been revealed, now the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 joins the list of phones that are leaked.

At first glance, the Galaxy Note 5 looks a lot like the Galaxy S6 that was released earlier this year, for better or worse, depending on your perspective. The back of the device looks a little curved in one shot, but it remains to be seen if that will affect whether or not the Note 5’s battery can be replaced or if it has an SD card.

Recent rumors have pegged Samsung unveiling this device along with a Galaxy S6 edge+ sometime next month, so it won’t be long until we can see full press shots of the device. Are you interested in the Note 5, or will you pass on it when it’s released?

Problem: when i turn on my phone, the logo of samsung will come up and then the t mobile logo keep on spinning like it usually do but wont stop and turn on, i’d try ko keep waiting but the logo still running please help me thank you

Solution: Try taking out your phone battery as well as the microSD card if you have one installed in your phone. Press and hold the power button for a minute then reinsert the battery (leave the microSD out). This completely discharges your phone of any residual power and clears out the RAM. Try turning on you phone and see if it boots up completely.

If the problem still persists then proceed with wiping the cache partition of your phone.

Turn off the device.

Press and hold the following three buttons at the same time: Volume Up key, Home key, Power key

When the phone vibrates, let go of the Power key but continue to press and hold the Volume Up key and the Home key.

When the Android System Recovery screen appears, release the Volume Up and Home keys.

Press the Volume Down key to highlight ‘wipe cache partition.’

Press the Power key to select and wipe the cache.

With ‘reboot system now’ highlighted, press the Power key to restart the device.

If the issue persists then proceed with doing a factory reset. Take note that this will delete all of your phone data so only do this if you have recently backed up you data or if you are willing to lose your data.

Turn off the device.

Press and hold the following three buttons at the same time: Volume Up key, Home key, Power key.

When the phone vibrates, release the Power key but continue to press and hold the Volume Up key and the Home key.

When the Android System Recovery screen appears, release the Volume Up and Home keys.

S2 Randomly Turns Off & Freezes

Problem: My phone frequently would tun itself off. It would restart after removing and replacing the battery.( side note,the phone, not always, set itself to Dec. 31 7:00 p.m., which happens to be the the exact date and time of my sisters’ death) s of 2 days ago it would turn on and freeze on the 4 G screen. The the android guy with the do not turn off target and now I only get the Samsung GalaxyS 2 page.That freezes.I got a new phone , the S6,and can’t get my contacts or photos. I can live without the contacts but my pics are irreplaceable. Please help me.I have a friend with the S2 would it work to transfer my card to it? I tried all soft reset technics. Then I saw the apps online. didnt know if they would work I might even sell my soul to the devil at this point.I’m blonde , technologically challenged and desperate.Thank you for all you do, and knowing you are there is a comfort, Callie

Solution: If your photos are stored in the microSD card of your S2 then you can take the card out and insert it to another phone or computer and gain access to the photos. If however the photos are stored in the phone internal storage space then you need to make sure your phone turns on first.

Here’s what you need to do to turn on your phone. first, take out the battery and the microSD card. Press and hold the power button for at least a minute to discharge your phone of any residual charge and clear out its RAM. Reinsert the battery only then try to turn on your phone.

If the issue persists then proceed with wiping the cache partition of your phone.

T-Mobile HTC One M9 getting Android 5.1 today

Most OEMs have already commenced the rollout of Android 5.1 for their smartphones. We’re now learning that T-Mobile will begin sending out the update for its variant of the One M9 later today. The change log shouldn’t see too many changes, although there could be a few HTC specific tweaks on board as we’ve seen on other variants so far.

In the new features section, all we’re seeing is Android 5.1, Anti-Theft, Google Wallet and battery improvements. Expectedly, the update is quite massive at 833MB, so it is advised that customers connect to a WiFi network before downloading the update on their T-Mobile branded One M9. We’re guessing HTC’s suite of camera improvements are bundled with the update here, so don’t be surprised to find a refined camera experience after the update.

Don’t expect a lot to change in terms of the user interface though as the smartphone is currently running on Android 5.0 and Android 5.1 doesn’t bring a lot of visual changes to the table.

The carrier has mentioned that the update could be sent out anytime between the 27th of July to the 20th of August, so don’t lose hope if the update notification hasn’t popped up on your smartphone already. In any case, it might help if you check for an update from Settings – About – Software updates.

Have you received the update already? Make sure you let us know by dropping a comment below.

HTC Is Offering Up to 50% Off Select Devices

 

In a Hot Deals promotion today, HTC is offering up to 50% off select devices and accessories. This includes the One M9, the Nexus 9, and even the Dot View case for the One M9.

The Nexus 9 is HTC’s tablet flagship that was released in 2014 as a launch device for Android 5.0 Lollipop. Both of the Wifi variants have been discounted by 40%, with the 16 GB version costing $239.40, and the 32 GB costing $287.40. The normal prices are respectively $399 and $479, so if you do the math, the 32 GB version with the discount costs less than the 16 GB version does without. Amazon is also discounting the Nexus 9, but not nearly as much.

The HTC One M9 is the only phone that HTC is discounting today, but it’s doing so at a good price. The 32 GB AT&T variant has been discounted to free with AT&T Next, and the Verizon One M9 is just $1 on contract. The Sprint version strangely isn’t part of the deals today, but it costs $199 on contract.

Just like with Best Buy yesterday (which has since gone up somewhat), the RE Camera is available for just $99, down from the normal asking price of $199. Other accessories such are discounted too, such as the Dot View case for $19.99, the HTC Bluetooth Stereoclip at $29.99, the HTC Fetch for $12.49. If you want any of these deals, head to the source link below.

Fix Samsung Galaxy S5 app crashes, FB Messenger, WhatsApp not updating on mobile data

This post will address two problems with the Samsung Galaxy S5. The first issue that I will address is about the constant crashing of apps after the lollipop update. You can read in the first section or problem that the reader positively said that the crashes happened immediately after the update. While app crashes can be caused by a lot of things, in this case, it’s the new firmware that has issues or creates conflicts.

Most of the time if the crashes are caused by a third-party app, booting in safe mode will prevent the error messages from popping up but that doesn’t mean the problem is fixed. While we are not sure if the problem is caused by a third-party app, it is still necessary to boot the device in safe mode. If error messages are minimized, then you’ll have the opportunity to backup the data that needs to be backed up before following the troubleshooting procedures I cited below.

The second issue is about the Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp apps that won’t update or can’t pull down data from their respective servers if the phone gets connectivity via mobile data network. More often we see this issue as a connectivity problem but it’s really not because you can still browse the web using any browser. Our reader also specified in the second problem that he can still use Facebook and other apps without interruption. So, read on to know what needs to be done if some apps won’t work via mobile data.

Before we go any further, if you have other concerns with your phone, visit our Samsung Galaxy S5 Troubleshooting page as we’ve already addressed hundreds of problems before. Find issues related or the same as yours and use the solutions we provided. If they didn’t work, then feel free to contact us by filling up this form accurately. Remember, the more details you provide, the more accurate our solutions are.

Applications keep crashing on Galaxy S5

Problem: Every app I have will say unfortunately (so and so) app has stopped, multiple times when using app. Even apps I never use and ones that came on my phone that I haven’t even activated will also do this. I don’t even have to be on app or have it open. I can just be on my home screen and it will pop up saying something has stopped. When it asks if I want to report it I do but I don’t think it does any good. All this started immediately once updated to lollipop. Also I get pop ups from Google play store to download whatever pops up and when I try to go back and get out of pop up my phone will freeze and sometimes shut off. It’s very frustrating. Have a good day! TY.

Troubleshooting: First of all, I will assume that the update to lollipop was successful. Otherwise, you have to manually install the firmware using ODIN to make the phone work again. If the process was successful, i.e. the phone rebooted on its own after the update and brought you to the Home screen without having errors, then issues like this are often linked to corrupt caches and data.

Major updates will generally change a lot of dependencies in your phone. So apps that might have been working properly prior to the update may not run smoothly with the new firmware especially if their caches and/or data were corrupted. But taking the safer route to troubleshooting, the first thing you should need to do is wipe the cache partition. It will delete all caches and forces the new firmware to create new ones.

Turn off the device.

Press and hold the following three buttons at the same time: Volume Up key, Home key, and Power key.

When the phone vibrates, release the Power key but continue to press and hold the Volume Up key and the Home key.

When the Android System Recovery screen appears, release the Volume Up and Home keys.

Press the Volume Down key to highlight ‘wipe cache partition.’

Press the Power key to select.

When the wipe cache partition is complete, ‘Reboot system now’ is highlighted.

Press the Power key to restart the device.

We don’t know for sure if the problem was caused by corrupt caches or data, so if the first procedure won’t work, then you must proceed with master reset. However, try to make a backup of you important data if you can. You may boot your phone in safe mode to see if the error messages are minimized and then do the following…

Turn off the device.

Press and hold the following three buttons at the same time: Volume Up key, Home key, and Power key.

When the phone vibrates, release the Power key but continue to press and hold the Volume Up key and the Home key.

When the Android System Recovery screen appears, release the Volume Up and Home keys.

Press the Volume down key several times key to highlight ‘wipe data / factory reset.’

Press Power button to select.

Press the Volume down key until ‘Yes — delete all user data’ is highlighted.

Press Power button to select and start the master reset.

When the master reset is complete, ‘Reboot system no…

The HTC RE Camera Is Just $99 At Best Buy

 

If you want a nice little camera accessory for your smartphone, the HTC RE is probably your best bet. And now, the camera has been discounted down to $99.

This is a 50% discount, as the RE normally costs $199. In addition to taking pictures, the RE also can shoot video, log time-lapses, and even do slow motion video capture. Being waterproof, the RE can be a great tool if you’re near a pool and want to take pictures without risking water damage for your daily driver.

This deal is available for a wide variety of colors, including blue, white, and orange. Best Buy isn’t saying how long this deal will last, but if you want a RE, you should grab one while it lasts.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Fix For Boot Up, Battery, Power Problems [Part 4]

Welcome to the fourth part in our focused troubleshooting series regarding boot up, battery, and power problems on the Samsung Galaxy S3. Since this is already a rather old model the most common issue that owners have been experiencing is with regard to turning the device on. If you own this particular model then you are in luck as we will be discussing this type of issue in this post.

In this latest installment of the series we will tackle five real world problems sent to us by our readers. We will analyze these problems and provide the best possible solution to arrive at a resolution.

If you own a Galaxy S3 or any other Android device for that matter then feel free to contact us using this form. We will be more than happy to assist you with any concern that you may have with your device. This is a free service we are offering with no strings attached. We however ask that when you do contact us try to be as detailed as possible so that an accurate assessment can be made and the correct solution can be given.

If you would like to browse the previous parts in this series then check out this link.

Aside from sending us an email you may also reach us at our Facebook and Google+ social media accounts.

S3 Turns Off After Startup

Problem: Bought spare battery and now when I turn on after full start up, phone shuts off. Battery at 85%. Pls help need my phone back.

Solution: Since the battery has 85% charge then we can isolate this as the cause of the problem for now. Let’s concentrate first on your phone software. Try wiping the cache partition of your phone first and see if this solves the issue.

Press and hold the Power/Lock key, tap Power off, and then tap OK to turn off the tablet.

Press and hold the Power/Lock key and Up Volume key at the same time.

Release the Power/lock key when the Samsung logo appears.

Release the Up Volume keys when the Android image appears.

When the menu appears, press the Down Volume key to select Wipe cache partition.

Press the Power/Lock key.

Once the message, “Cache wipe complete” appears on the screen below the menu, Press the Power/Lock key to select Reboot system now

If the issue persists then I recommend doing a factory reset. Take note that you should only do this if you have made a backup of your phone data as this will be deleted in the process.

Turn off the device.

Press and hold the following three buttons at the same time: Volume Up key, Home key, Power key

When the phone vibrates, let go of the Power key but continue to press and hold the Volume Up key and the Home key.

When the Android System Recovery screen appears, release the Volume Up and Home keys.

Press the Volume Down key to highlight ‘wipe cache partition.’

Press the Power key to select and wipe the cache.

With ‘reboot system now’ highlighted, press the Power key to restart the device.

If the problem still persists then this may already be a hardware related issue. Try using another battery and if this doesn’t help then bring your phone to an authorized service center for further checking.

S3 Not Turning On After Flashing Software

Problem: I was resetting the phone to it’s factory setting, I went through the basics steps using the phone Menu. During the factory Reset it came up with an Error of cant mount data, when it restarted it stayed on the Samsung Logo Screen. Did some research and decided to flash the phone since it seemed the OS files got corrupted. Downloaded Kies, placed the phone on Download mode and left it alone to do its thing. When the process finished it restarted and went into an installation screen where the bar keeps going up. Then it shut off. Now it won’t turn on at all. And if I take the battery out and plug it to the cable it just vibrates. What should I do to fix this?

Solution: It looks like the phone is bricked. Try removing the battery as well as the microSd card of your phone. Press and hold the power button for at least a minute then reinsert the battery. Turn on your phone and check if the issue is resolved.

If the problem persists then try to do another round of emergency firmware recovery using Kies. If that fails then you will need to reflash your phone using Odin. You will need the exact firmware of your phone as well as a program called Odin installed in your computer to do this. Detailed instructions on how to go about doing this can be found a several of the popular Android forums online.

S3 Battery Drains Quickly

Problem: It doesn’t hold charge and drains quickly.I hardly use my phone which has 2-3 apps downloaded in it. I have cleaned the charging port, formatted it, changed the battery and charger and the service centre people don’t have any answer to this. I also have Grand which has the same problem. Please help. Thank you!

Solution: Does the issue still exists right after a factory reset? If it does and you are already using a new battery and charger…

New rumor claims OnePlus Lite and OnePlus 2 will be announced together

Over the past few weeks, benchmark listings have given us contrasting details about the OnePlus 2, leaving most of us confused. While some pegged the handset to be sporting a Full HD display, some reports hinted that the company will go with a pixel dense Quad HD panel. A new rumor now suggests that the handset with the Full HD display bearing the model number A2001 is nothing but the OnePlus Lite.

The rumor goes on to say that the OnePlus 2 is going to be known as the A2003. This makes us wonder if the A2005 that leaked out today is a dummy prototype meant for testing purposes. In any case, take this rumor with a large pinch of salt as OnePlus hasn’t shared details on any mini device as of yet and our only source of these reports have been leaks.

Frankly, it doesn’t make sense for OnePlus to be releasing two devices simultaneously, given that the company is still relatively new to the industry and cannot afford that extra burden of manufacturing. It is said that the company has put all of its strength on procuring enough quantities of the OnePlus 2 so that there are no issues on launch day.

Do you think the OnePlus Lite rumor has any weight?
