  2. As long as it isn't that ridiculous "ask one assistant to tell another assistant to do something," I'm willing to buy it.
  3. You mean the color or the camera setup? Kinda agree with the camera placements. When your camera strip is that long, probably best to go the way of Samsung by centering it so you don't get this wobbly mess when laying down flat. (if you go caseless anyway) where you want put the camera ? Look up the Samsung S10 for an example; less wobble since it's balanced. @dipsylalapo (I just realized where you got your name lmao), I actually like the colors... but I guess none of these issues matter if your phone goes in a case anyway. haha. I do usually have a case but it's transparent. I guess using a coloured case or skin isn't the end of the world.
  4. That's a manageable price tag. I wish Samsung would follow.

    Greenify app

    I used it on my Note II and it worked great. There is also a few functions that needs root (if I remember correctly). I haven't needed it with my Pixel 2 XL. Google has done a great job in doing what this app does on it's own.
  7. Root and install AOSP or one of its derivatives, LineageOS. Or go with meego's spiritual successor, SailfishOS. Don't install GApps and sideload all your apps from a trusted source.
  8. For this price, I wish I needed another SE.
  9. That's the thing, I don't think it was ever advertised as a smart speaker. Looking through the website, it seemed more like a hub/speaker for Nest's security products. They then pushed an updated to make it smart, enabling a mic that wasn't apparent. I guess I have bigger things to worry about. It's not like I don't already have products made by/for Google that contain microphones. New title: "Humans who don't assume a Google product has a mic are in for a surprise" I just counted: My Comcast remote has a mic, my phone,Wife's phone, iPad, 3 home mini's, Amazon Fire, both PC's(home), then there is work. It's much todo about nothing.

    Word I have Spotify, Tasker, Light Flow and LastPass all running in the background. All of which I need to be running in the background.

    Do you have a link with instructions? It may help others too

    And if he has a pedometer app or something else that needs to run in the background they will no longer work with that option enabled (if my understanding is correct). Greenify looks like it allows you to specify which apps should be allowed to run in the background and which shouldn't.

    Just installed the app to find out 😛 If you use any app to listen to anything (podcasts or music) I'd probably avoid enabling that.
  14. HMD cooks up more Pie, now serving it to the Nokia 2.1 by João Carrasqueira HMD Global unleashed a set of updates to some of its smartphones yesterday, bringing Pie to the 2017 Nokia 6 and Nokia 8, plus Oreo to the original Nokia 2. If you thought that was all for this week, though, you'd be wrong. CPO Juho Sarvikas announced on Twitter that the Nokia 2.1 is now getting a major software update to Android Pie. Unlike its predecessor, the Nokia 2.1 ships with Android Go, rather than the full version of Android, so it can get updates more easily despite its low-end hardware. This lightweight version of the OS isn't quite as capable, but it should offer much better performance on a device like the Nokia 2.1, which only has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. In our review of the phone, Muhammad Jarir Kanji noted that even then its performance isn't that great. As for what's new in this update, Nokia phones typically stick to a pretty clean version of Android, so most of the additions here are likely the same ones that are included in the Go Edition of Pie. This means that the OS installation will leave a little more free space for your apps and files, and you should also see faster boot times. There are also some new security features, such as verified boot. HMD Global is still one of the shining examples of a good Android update schedule, as the majority of its lineup is already on Android Pie. According to a recently revealed roadmap, all of its phones, excluding the Nokia 2, will be on the latest version of Android by the second quarter of 2019. Source: Juho Sarvikas (Twitter)

    useless app, just block running background apps in DEV mode

    I don't use the app, but I can't find any reference to smart hibernation. I would assume that it tries to intelligently figure out which applications should be hibernated rather than working from a set list - if that is the case then it's really up to you. Do you want the app to decide if others should be hibernated, or do you have a specific set of apps that you want it to close down each time?
  17. just uninstall it )))) dont use spyware as FB,Instagram,Gmail,Google use DuckDuckGo___________
  18. They are just breaking things with each new release, what a mess. This gaming improvement is actually a joke. If you want gaming improvement get better CPU and Video Card, there is your gaming improvement. The gaming in Windows 10 is pretty broken, or better say DX12 is pretty broken API. No MGPU support, performance scaling even on single card from 1080p to 2k resolution is horrible. On top of that good luck getting any DX12 game running properly, turns into stuttering ###### show. 'Thanks to everyone who signed up to try out our new Windows gaming technology in Build 18334. With today’s new build (Build 18342), we have some fixes that we can’t wait to have folks try out: the game now runs correctly with parental controls enabled, and the install process is more stable (including a fix for the game being stuck in “Pending” instead of downloading).' They concept of gaming improvement is adding bloatware junk like parental controls...seriously MS? What I really like about new 19H1 release is ability to actually uninstall more of this junk and I hope XBOX app or anything related to it is on that list. Who actually needs ability to access Linux file on Windows? Seriously MS, one big waste of time. If I want Linux I will actually install real distro on PC which I did. 1809 adoption rate is horrible which tells me that people just don't care about Windows 10 and they are tired of non sense updates. This entire Windows ECO system which only exist on PC is fragmenting into multiple versions and this is going to get pretty bad. As a hard core Windows user, MS forced me to get rid of Windows completely except on one machine. Everything else is on iOS, Mac OS, and Linux. That is their the best achievement with Windows 10.

    Samsung announces the Galaxy Fold, its first foldable smartphone

    So it's a proprietary and expensive Android multitasking solution. Out of my budget anyway.
  20. I'll wait for Apple to refine the tech especially on the software side of things. Samsung will probably stop giving out OS updates in 2 years so not worth the money.
  21. I did this to my Samsung Note Pro 12.2 (a.k.a Toilet tablet) . It's Battery would last a couple days, while sleeping. After debloating it, it lasts over a week, mostly sleeping.
  22. Also in case of Samsung and wanting to still be able to use knox and stuff

    Neowin GDPR Privacy Policy Update

    Hi, It's still happening sadly. I never clear cookies and I don't actually use ad blocking on my phone or tablet nor do I go incognito which I could understand. Neowin is one of the few sites I actually whitelist on my PC. I'd recently factory rest my Nvidia K1 and it's just a basic install there at the moment but still happening. Every 30 days would be fine, but it does bug you when it happens more than once a day. I've never had to use Quantcast on a site before so I won't pretend to know how to implement it. But I just find it odd that it just seems to be Neowin I have the issue with. I shall have to dig into Chrome settings and see if there is something there perhaps or try another mobile browser. We shall see... edit: thank you for the reply though

    Anyone?
  26. In my case, I don't really want root, but I did want to remove the bloatware off the phone and tablet. This is extremely simple to do using the adb command above.
  27. And for those of us using "good old reliable" Windows-7 (even with its flaws) an excellent reason to stay with it. Most of us have much better things to do than having to constantly "futz around" trying to make and keep Windows-10 working reliably.
