Galaxy S6 has sported bigger screen and faster processor

Since my new phone Galaxy S6 has sported bigger and brighter screen and faster processor, I just preordered an extended battery case off mpj for it. I think the only problem is that I can not cradle a my phone in one hand while using the battery pack.

Is it possible to recover deleted photos from android without no backups?

Great many of android users don’t know it is possible to directly recover photos from android phones/tablets without backups.

When you delete photos(or other files) on your Android device, it isn't really erased- it continues existing. That's why you can retrieve deleted photos from android without needing of backup. Deleting a file's pointer and marking its space as available is an extremely fast operation. In contrast, actually erasing a file by overwriting its data takes significantly longer. For example, if you're deleting a 1 GB file, that would be near-instantaneous. To actually erase the file's contents, it may take several minutes – just as long as if you were writing 1 gigabytes of data to your Android device. In that case, o...

Samsung Brightside

Hi -

I'm just moving into the world of a cell that isn't a flip phone; I'm inheriting my 15 year old grandson's Brightside.

The main reason I want it is to go on the web - I watch some shows that live tweet and I want to be able to do that without running into another room to the computer.

Can I get to Twitter on this phone? I get the feeling that SOME internet is unavailable but that could just be that I don't understand what I'm looking at. (Not unusual with anything electronic!)

Would appreciate any help. I'm noticing that this phone has NEVER been very expensive which is probably why the grandson had it in the first place.

OH = what's the difference between this phone and a smart phone?

Thanks much!

replace the Galaxy Note 4 original battery

I had decided to replace the Galaxy Note 4 original battery against this MPJ 6440 mah battery with much more capacity.

The delivery was fast and without problems.

The battery fits in the smartphone.
The cover is very well made and formed my opinion.
He closes very well with the rest of the cell phone case and is not at all disturbing.

Battery increasement is noticeable and therefore recommended compared to the old battery.

Samsung Internet Speeds

I found this video of a guy doing speed tests with a variety of Samsung phones: ... »

I am a bit confused, as they seem to vary widely depending on model (including some older models doing very well). I was under the assumption that Internet speed is based off of the carrier and your WiFi connection, not the phone itself.

Does this make some of these models better than the others?

Even if Galaxy S5 battery is very powerful, can partly not enough, especially if the phone frequently used extensively during the day. There are quite a few tips with which you can increase the Samsung Galaxy S5 battery life. Much battery life is consumed by the high display brightness or you have switched on Bluetooth or GPS when you do not actually need.

Extending Galaxy Note 4 battery life

Since we carry and deal with more and more smart phones, we have to figure out better and mobile ways of charging those devices. MPJ is one of those companies trying to make our lives easier by being able to extend battery life. They are going to launch 3220 mAh and 6440 mAh extended battery for Samsung Galaxy Note 4 N910.

The 3220mAh battery can store at least same juice as original battery and even 5% more energy than stock if the battery is calibrated. The second is a 6440 mAh extended battery, offering twice the capacity over the original battery. This particular battery needs its own back cover which MPJ will offer.

Re: Straight Talk Samsung Galaxy Proclaim (SCH-S720C) for Verizon.

My old phone that's almost two years old seems to be wearing out and having problems. I have a new replacement of the same exact model.

What is the safest and simplest method of transferring everything from my old phone to my new phone?

Is there any way to transfer all the call logs and text messages?

Thanks for any help. The manual doesn't go into much detail on this.
