Android app for movies and tv shows. . .

I recently found out about this app called Ginkgo Video Pro, there's a one time charge of $5, the file size of the app is only 300kb's, so it doesn't take up much internal memory, and movies & tv shows get downloaded to your memory card. This Friday is my next payday, I'm gonna download it then. Just thought I would tell others here that might be interestes.

Mirror, Mirror, on the phone

It’s a pretty fantastic world we live in these days, especially when it comes to smartphone technology. Long hours of entertainment lie at our fingertips, available virtually at any time and any place - all accessible from a sleek little device. However, as convenient as smartphones are, there’s still something to be said about watching your favourite movies on a big, flat-screen HD television.

I recently bought a Le 1s Eco smartphone and decided to test it for Screen Mirroring (a technology that allows you to mirror your smartphone screen onto a compatible TV) so I could play my favourite movies and games stored on my phone.

The Le 1s Eco uses Miracast-based wireless technology to mirror content. This technology gives users a bett...

Marshmallow bugs at least on S5,S6 Verizon, Speech to text, voicemail when power saving is on

Marshmallow bugs at least on S5,S6 Verizon, Speech to text, voicemail when power saving is on

If you have power saving on the following will occur (at least on Verizon-I tested it with diff phones with Marshmallow).

-Speech to text with power saving on will not recognize "new line", "new paragraph" among other things.

-When someone tries to leave a voicemail you will get an error in pull down menu. Error is 9007.
And no voicemail will appear. If you then turn off power saving mode, the voicemail will soon appear. The message says to call Verizon. Verizon cannot help you. Samsung cannot help you. Google/Android cannot help you. I called them all or posted and they logged the bugs.

So if you still want power saving on (like I do...

Marshmellow update ( help!)

2 days ago, I updated my S6 to Marshmallow from lollipop. I have had nothing but problems with my phone since. My battery life is depleting 30% every hour, even when not in use ( I make sure to clear my apps, everytime, turned down the brightness on my screen..etc.) also my fast charger, the one that came in the box, is now not "fast" charging. Took my phone 5 hours to fully charge, when before it only took 1 hour.
I have an appointment with my carrier, and Im in the process of backing up everything, just in case.
Is there anyway to restore Lollipop without wiping my phone? I really want to avoid going to the carrier tomorrow. Im so fed up with this "update". Any help is much appreciated.

Upgrade FroYo 2.2

Evening:

For quite awhile now, I've wanted to upgrade my Samsung from Froyo 2.2 to KK4.4.2. I've run into a problem I simply can't resolve. In order for any comp to recognize this phone, I must D/l-install a driver for it. Yet, just can't seem to do so. I can get the driver, but I couldn't install it in either MSWin7 nor LM17.3 ??? So, any suggestions on how to accomplish getting this phone to be "recognized"? Second, should I ever get it "recognized" then use either Odin or Kies to install a new O.S. upgrade. What site would you recommend to D/l the O.S. from? Once driver is install and O.S. D/led, won't Kies/Odin take care of the rest of the upgrade? phone specs: Samsung Anycall GalaxyS 1- model shw-m110s presently running FroYo 2.2...

Looking for an expert opinion. Spec nerds please comment.

I am looking for an UNLOCKED phone with the following specs:
13+ MP back camera
1.2+ gHz quad+ core processor
5.5" - 6" screen
2+ GB RAM
16+ GB ROM
Android 5.x.x+

One thing I need to make clear: I DO NOT want a flagship phone. I am well aware of the specs of the GS6, the iPhone 6+, etc. I am also not interested in the Nexus 6P.

I don't care about the country of manufacture, so long as it is compatible with GSM bands in the USA.

I am not looking to spend $500-$600.

Before you criticize what I am asking for (eg "So you want a phone with flagship specs and want to pay nothing for it?") I purchased a ZTE Axon Pro (with 64GB ROM, 4GB RAM, 13+2MP back camera, 8 MP front camera, 2.0 gHz octo-core processor, 5.5" screen, Android 5....
