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


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
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....

Manage your family or your business by iPhone

This is one the few Software In Mobile Phone that provides the microphone service element within software program. It's most definitely a good one, although this may not be an essential element for some.

Suppose you intend to Record Surroundings of mobile phone and listen. The majority of us, just our phone simply leave them on kitchen counter or our table. While they do that it provides the perfect chance to you to make use of the microphone activation feature. It lets you listen the phones environments immediately yourself whenever you secretly activate the mobile phone microphone!

Best camera app

Candy Camera is so easy to use and has so much to offer! It's great for making selfies or taking pictures of friends and make them look ridiculous. There are so many filters that you can apply and features for you to add something to, or adjust the picture. One thing I really like are the make-up options. You cna take a picture of yourself or someone else and edit it to make you/them look better.
I also really love it that it's so easy for me to upload or share to social media. The best camera app for noob to average users I say!

Android VS Apple

I kept getting into this debate with people about why so many phones are better than the iphone. Finally I was taken down by the question, "then why do so many people have iphones?". I told her that it was a brand name thing, Apple products are in right now and thus everyone wants an iphone. When in reality, just like a PC is better than a MAC, Android phones (most of them) surpass any iphone. I just need to find better points to make for this sort of debate. Any suggestions or feedback?
