  • 12 Dangerous Android Apps You Need to Delete Immediately

    Pay attention to the list of the most suspicious apps you may come across in Google Play. Delete them from your phone immediately to protect your personal data and extend the life of your phone.
    Their creators promise the apps will optimize your device, extend the life of your battery and protect your phone from viruses. Some of them are even supposed to be lie detectors and defragmentation devices. In fact, all they give you is ads, and what they do is get access to your data and kill your battery. Considering the huge number of apps created every single day, not even Google can keep track and check the safety of all the new programs. So the security of your device mostly depends on you!

    Social media apps 1:31
    Optimizers 2:02
    Built-in browsers 2:32

    SUMMARY
    -There was a weather app that allowed the bad guys to avoid two-step authentication and easily get access to banking information of those who installed it.
    -Social media apps suck up so much of your device’s energy and kill the battery too.
    -Optimizers don’t make your phone’s system faster, they just slow it down and bring you ads as an added bonus.
    -Built-in browsers are mostly slow-working and don't have any protection from data interception.
    -Hackers create their own antivirus apps, which can steal users’ personal data and even completely block the phone.
    -You have at least two reasons two delete browsers from your phone: they slow it down, and require access to most aspects of the system, so they can even manage your calls.
    -You won't get more memory than your phone had initially, but will provide memory apps with access to your data.
    -Lie detector apps are about as useful as crystal balls, but they kill your battery and get access to your contacts and personal data.
    -Defragmentation apps don’t work like promised. They can only analyze how much space certain programs take up, use your phone's resources and collect your personal data.
    -You will want to delete this app because it consumes tons of data since it’s full of ads and causes a massive drain of your battery.
    -Battery savers and fast chargers can’t really change the speed of your gadget charging, but can give you endless apps even on lock screen.
    -If you don't want these apps to get access to all your data, avoid them at all costs.

  • Google to replace Android with Fuchsia? Huawei notch solution & more - Pocketnow Daily

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Google's Fuchsia OS and the possibility of it replacing Android in the next 5 years. Then we talk about Huawei and some new patents that provide a solution for the notch with a camera hole in the display. Samsung will apparently launch their Bixby Speaker this August and will feature the S-Ray concept they showed at CES. NASA is teaming up with Samsung with a project called 'A Moon for All Mankind' in which you can experience the moon landing through a Gear VR. We end today's show with the announcement of Corning's Gorilla Glass 6, which is said to be twice as strong as the previous generation.

  • Android P: Changing The Game With Project Treble - Gary Explains

    Project Treble promises to bring balance to Android's biggest problem: version fragmentation. First introduced with Android O, this reworking of the Android OS' internals will hit its stride in Android P, evidenced by the fact that seven OEMs released Android P betas in parallel with Google. So, what exactly is Project Treble and how does it help? Please, let me explain.

  • The 4 Dollar Android Smartphone

    So it sounds like Adcom (company featured in this video) may sue the company manufacturing the 4 dollar version. If you visit the website for the Freedom 251 you'll see an exact replica listed at a far lower price. I'm not sure they'll ever be able to deliver at that price, others are skeptical as well. Starting to sound like a bunch of these went out the side door at the Adcom factory.

    More info on the $4 Android phone...

  • 8 Secret Phone Settings You Should Try (ANDROID)

    There aren’t many people out there who know about all the amazing things these devices are capable of. We would like to end this vicious circle and tell you about eight fascinating features of Android. Setting #2 is our favorite – it will keep your phone's battery going for longer.

    TIMESTAMPS
    Control your smartphone with head movements 0:43
    Text-to-speech 1:28
    Smartphone remote control 1:59
    Turning on Guest Mode 2:35
    Screen magnifier 3:10
    Hotspot mode 3:37
    The easiest way to save your battery power 4:15
    A secret game 4:44

    #androidsettings #androidsecrets #phonecodes

    SUMMARY
    - After installing a free app called EVA Facial Mouse, you’ll be able to control your Android device with movements of your head!
    - If you prefer to hear incoming information rather than see it, go to Settings/Accessibility and turn on the Text-to-Speech Output option.
    - Just go to Settings/Security/Device administrators, and check the boxes next to Android Device Manager, Remotely locate this device, and Allow remote lock and erase. Now if you lose your smartphone, you can locate and block it without losing your data via a special website.
    - If you would like to give your phone to another person yet keep your personal data confidential, use Guest Mode.
    Swipe down from the top with two fingers, and touch the user icon on the upper right. The Add guest icon will appear.
    - People with poor eyesight often have no idea how much this feature can help them. Just go to Settings / Accessibility / Magnification gestures. Then you’ll be able to zoom in on any part of the display just by tapping it.
    - To use the Internet on different devices, go to Settings / Tethering and portable hotspot, and turn on Portable WLAN hotspot. That’s it!
    - If you choose a black or simple dark background for your screen, the automatic pixel highlighting will turn off, and you’ll notice that your device keeps its charge for much longer.
    - Starting with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Google puts a small secret present for users into all their devices. However, finding it may prove to be quite difficult. Here are instructions on how to do it despite the odds. First, go to Settings and choose About phone or About tablet. Quickly tap Android version several times, and when a small marshmallow shows up on the screen, quickly tap it again, and a special mini-game will open.
