Just transfer data from Android to PC as backup file and you could save some room to keep other data. Step 1 Install TunesGo and run it with clicking.

iOS 11 NFC Feature Makes P2P Payments in iMessage Possible By Ivy Bruce

There are lots of new features in iOS 11 that you can preview at WWDC 2017. But please do not ignore the one which even didn’t being mentioned-“Core NFC” framework during the keynote. Screen Recorder: Capture Live Stream Videos on PC/Mac Directly Record Your iPhone Screen Near-field communication (NFC) is a set of short-range wireless technologies that enables short range communication between compatible devices. It allows phones, tablets, and laptops to share data with other NFC-equipped devices. Normally, this requires two devices- one is for transmitting while the other is for receiving the signal. There are a large number of devices can use the NFC technology in our daily life. For instance, when you want to check out after shopping, you can simply place your smartphone which has NFC within four inches of the contactless reader and simultaneously you would be prompted to confirm the payment. Basically, NFC devices(especially for Android) support three main modes of operation: 1. Reader/writer mode- reading or writing NFC tags and stickers 2. P2P mode- exchanging data with other NFC devices 3. Card emulation mode-directly act as an NFC card Lots of Android devices have NFC and you are allowed to enjoy the convenience it brings in your daily life. However, iOS, the other operating system, is a pretty new comer in the NFC world. Not all the iPhones have this tech and it only supports for several versions of iOS including iPhone 7/7 Plus/6S/6S Plus/SE and Apple Watch. Nevertheless, the NFC in iPhone only gets one feature- supporting Apple Pay and with such a single function, it is not in the same ballpark as the NFC features on Android. But now, Apple introduce a completely new Core NFC framework in iOS 11, which allows uses to use the NFC feature like the way you do on Android. That is to say, iOS 11 could use the iPhone's NFC chip for more than Apple Pay. It could expand NFC functions beyond Apple Pay for use in its own apps and services as Apple could let third-party developers make use of NFC. “Apple Pay is the number one contactless payment service on mobile devices and by the end of the year, it will be available in more than 50% of retailers here in the US. In addition to payment in retail, we use Apple Pay in apps, we use it on the web — there was one final frontier we wanted to conquer and that’s Apple Pay for person-to-person payments.

The first thing we should do is to download and install a useful music player app on your Galaxy S6, etc. There are a great many music-related apps for Android devices, yet some of them do stand out. It's impossible to look at all of them, so we just picked up 5 Android Music Player Apps that we think is some of the best there is. Let's take a glance. NO.1 Google Play Music Google's Play Music is mostly known as a front-end for listening to music you purchased from the Google Play Store and stream from Google All Access. Besides, Play Music app is also a fantastic offline music player. With the app, you can download music from the internet and share up to 20,000 hit songs you like to the website. If you got some tunes stored in Google's cloud locker, some pinned in the library from All Access, and some saved in SD card, you can mix them together regardless of where it's stored with this app. This is also what makes Play Music stand out for many Android users. NO.2 Poweramp If you got some music in FLAC format and looking for ways to play the songs in your Android mobile phone, Poweramp is your first choice, which handles FLAC files like a champ, as well as other slightly less common files like OGG, WMA, ALAC and so on.

Magic Radio, is a new feature of doubleTwist, which creates custom radio stations based on the usual artist/song selections. You can experience this cool feature with a 7-day trial, but after that, it runs a relatively steep $24.99 per year. NO.4 N7 Player n7 Player is an extremely popular option that's shaped up to be just as great as the other players we've mentioned. When you first fire up n7, it automatically builds your library for you. It compiles everything on your both your SD card and internal storage, and will even fetch albums for you. Afterwards, it throws you into the main screen of the app and gives you a few pop-up tips to help you navigate around, and these navigation features are really where n7 shines.

NO.5 JetAudio Music Player jetAudio, a well-presented, feature-rich and slick audio player, takes sound seriously. To skip to the next track, you just need to simply flicking your finger. Then 10-band graphic equalizer is a nice beast too, providing a staggering 36 different pre-sets. There are two versions of the app: one is a free ad-supported, the other is a Plus version without ads. Five music player apps mentioned above are useful and equipped with excellent features.

How to Quickly Speed up a Slow Android Phone By Ivy Bruce

I'm sure many Android users had owned a phone that started lagging after several months of use. Apps take longer to open. Letters appear a second or two after you type them. Sometimes even the whole screen freezes and forces you to reboot your phone. In order to speed up your smartphone, here are few easy-to-do steps that come in handy. Remove Unnecessary Widgets and Shortcuts Unlike iOS, Android allows you to create app shortcuts and widgets on homescreen on a whim. It may make your phone full of characteristics, but it also takes up your phone memory. Besides, lots of widgets contain advertisement. Take a closer look for widgets or shortcuts you don't usually use and delete them by long pressing and dragging them to the trash icon. Downgrade your Android Version New are not always better. An up-to-date version of Android could be too much for an old device to handle, thus resulting in sluggish respond. For example, all the bells and whistles in Android lollipop is certainly inappropriate to be push on your Droid 1. If that's the case, downgrade your version of Android may be help increasing speed. Disable Background Data Most of the apps that you have downloaded on your handsets consume lot of data in the background to search for updates and provide better experience. Compares to the memory space it took from phone, I would say that disable background data is rather a better option. Go to Settings>Data usage>Menu and check the option Restrict background data. Clear your App cache Your smartphone is just as much of a computer. The programs write to the app cache eat up precious system resources and slowing everything down. Except for the ways to wipe phone cache that I mentioned before, you can also download Android Transfer on your PC (not on your phone) to manage your phone data. But if you are trying to download a third party app on your Android, I would say that it is a complete waste of time and precious space of your device. Factory Reset your Android Phone Your final resort would be to factory reset your phone . Be careful though, factory reset is a process that erases all your phone data. So make sure you read through the instructions and most importantly, remember to backup your Android phone. That's it -- a very small time investment to make your smartphone zippy. Hope you enjoy your faster phone. Don't forget to provide your feedback in the comment section or share them with your friends!

Why aren't Music Files Stored in Memory Cards Found? By Ivy Bruce

Music files would be accumulated gradually in your phone memory cards as you use your Android phone after you have purchased an HTC phone. But, why music files that stored in memory cards cannot be found by music player when the memory cards are inserted into the phone? There are many reasons why music files stored in memory cards cannot be found via Android. You can find various solutions to this problem: 1. Music Files Format not Compatible with the Music Player Generally speaking, Android music player can support most music file formats, such as MP3/WMA/WAV, etc. While some high-quality music files, such as APE/FLAC, etc. are not supported. So, the situation that though many music files were stored, few of them was found by the music player happens. The solution is to convert the format to MP3/WMA/WAV and then store them in memory cards again. 2. Too Many File Directories or Codes can’t be Identified In principle, an easy solution is to change the directory which music files stored in. Users would better place the music flies in the folder just under the root directory and name the folder with English and numbers. 3. Quality of Memory Card Some memory cards may have quality problems, which causes the failure of storing music files even if you were told that they were stored successfully. The solution is to change a new memory card and test it. Related Articles Find Music from the Memory Card on Android Phone Top 5 Useful Music Player Apps How to Transfer Music from iTunes to Android

No matter you use a new card or to flash your phone again can't solve the problem. How to solve? A: You can download the auxiliary tool called "fastboot.exe" and copy it in the file folder of "C:Windows/System32". Then power off your mobile phone and connect your phone to the computer with the USB cable. Press the "Volume -" and the power on button and choose the fastbootn mode in the Hboot interface with the volume button. Press the power on button to make sure. Input "CMD" in the search bar of the Start menu in the lower left corner. After entering the command prompt interface, input "fastboot oem enableqxdm 0" and press the enter button. As the program has been restored completely, restart the mobile phone. 2. The system tips that SD card is damaged Q: As you use the SD card frequently, you will find that the files that were installed in SD card display this information "the file is damaged", "SD card is damaged" or "SD card needs formatting". What's happening? A: A large quantity of our customers regards it as a symbol that the SD card is damaged thoroughly and is going to change into using another card. Frankly, the reason why this happening is that browser and media player will build up some cache file in the SD card. After these temporary files get wrong, it will result in the SD card files wrong. Actually, you should use the kdsk command on your computer. After connecting your phone to your computer with the USB cable, press the "Volume -" and the "Power on" button simultaneously, and the "mounts and storage/mount USB storage" choice will be displayed in the Hboot interface. In this moment, the phone users will see the SD card drive on the computer and press the "Start" and "R" button at the same time.

In this condition, the SD card can works as normal. 3. Application that installed in the SD card doesn't work Q: When the phone of the users was power off accidentally or was plug into other phone, you will find that all the application can't operate that was install on SD card by APP2SD and only left the shortcut on the desktop. Even though you reinstall the application, it will also come out some strange things. Why? A: That's because the "android-secure" file folder that was stored in the SD card was damaged. Unlike on PC platform, when phone users reinstall the same application, it won't cover the original path but automatically use new file name instead. This is why there's some conflict on settings in the phone. If you don't want to format your SD card, you should delete the error data that stored in the ".android-secure" file. For you don't have the access permission of ".android-secure", you should connect your phone to the computer with USB cable and choose "USB storage device". Then, empty the file folder named "mnt/SDCARD/.android-secure".

Formats that Suitable to Play on Phones By Ivy Bruce

Years ago, when I was young, I am extremely crazy about watching movies on my MP4 player. So, I once spent lots of time to study which format plays more perfect on MP4 player. As now more and more Android phones carries quad-core processor, they become one of the most perfect video players. If you play a RMVB video of QVGA on a 1080P screen, it will be a waste. There are many excellent video players, such as moboplayer and MXplayer. I will take MXplayer for instance. Strictly speaking, video format has two different meanings, one is container format and the other is coded format. Format like .avi and .mp4 that we often mention is belonged to container format. It is coded format and sometimes code rate that affects the image quality. Video container format is to place the video track and audio track that has already been encoded and compressed according to a certain format. Next, I will list several common container formats for you: AVI: The format standard that Microsoft Company set up in the 1990s is to fight against .mov of quicktime format. It only supports sound files that has constant byte rate. FLV: Only serve h.263 format. MKV: It is an almighty container format that it has excellent compatibility, cross-platform and correction and it also supports external subtitle. MOV: As it is mentioned above, it is the format of quicktime. MP4:It is mainly applied on mpeg4 container format. RM/RMVB: Real Video, which was developed by RealNetworks so as to apply on rmvb and rm. TS/PS: PS container format can only be played on HDDVD the original edition. WMV: Developed by Microsoft Company. Above are the container formats that we meet frequently on the Internet. Now, let's know more detail about the relationship between container format and coded format. AVI: supports MPEG-2, DIVX, XVID, WMV3, WMV4, WMV9 and H.264 WMV: supports WMV3, WMV4 and WMV9 RM/RMVB: supports RV40, RV50, RV60, RM8, RM9 and RM10 MOV: supports MPEG-2, MPEG4-ASP(XVID) and H.264 MKV: supports all video encoding schemes The image quality of a video hinge on four factors: Firstly, the video resolution and frame rate; secondly, coded format and code stream; thirdly, the affection that resolution make to image quality and the fluency of the picture affected by frame rate; last but not least, the affection that coded format and code stream brings to the image quality. Coded format is the data bits that are delivered in unit time while delivering data. The unit that we usually use is kbps which means kilo bytes per second. It's equal to sampling rate. The larger the sampling rate of unit times, the higher the accuracy. And the files that are processed will be much closer to the original file. That is, the detail of the picture will be more abundant. Any shortcoming on resolution, frame rate, coded format and code stream will affect the quality of the video. RM and RMVB was quite popular two or three years ago. In the condition that the size of the video is not large and the dynamic fragment are not too much, the capacity of the files will be small. So, it will be convenient to spread and store. This format is being replaced by MKV which possess the better compatibility then RM and RMVB while sharing the same advantage with them. MXplayer is one of the quite outstanding video players of Android operating system which is compatible to many different formats. So, I highly recommend this video player to you. To have a better image quality, the resolution of the video that you choose can't be lower than your screen resolution; otherwise the video can't take full advantage of the screen point to point. This will damage the image quality certainly. Then, it is time to choose the video format. Try to choose videos that possess better coded format like H264 and X264 as possible so long as it is able to be played on this player. This coded format is excellent that they can maintain high image quality when it doesn't need much code stream and the code stream and coded format directly decide the size of the video file. If the storage space of your phone is small, you'd better choose the video that have higher image quality and the lower capacity. To choose the more suitable video of your phone, the image quality will be guaranteed.

Solutions for The Three Common Snapseed Photo Editing Mistakes By Ivy Bruce

Snapseed is one of the most popular photo-editing apps available for both iPhone and Androids users. It is multifunctional and easy for use. Besides the basic editing functions like rotate, crop, and contrast, Snapseed is also loaded with extra non-ignoble features like the brush, healing, perspective and so on. However, some of the users would come to over-editing when they adjust the photos with the features. In this article, I will show you several common editing mistakes of excessive photo editing with Snapseed and come up the relatively solutions. Mistake 1 Side effect of HDR High Dynamic Range (HDR) aims to add more "dynamic range" to photographs, where dynamic range is the ratio of light to dark in a photograph. HDR would use three photos with different exposures, rather than just one. In this way, it would make your pictures look better and highlight the best parts of each photo. You are allowed to use HDR option which can bring out colors and details for your photos in Snapseed. However, as it is not the actual HDR process, you can get something wrong when you use this feature in Snapseed. For instance, the light balance can be funky and with too many details, or the dark parts of the scene are brighter than the light parts of the scene in the finished photo, which looks just strange and very artificial. Solution: To make it better to look, you can reduce filter strength by controlling the filter strength from +20 to +40 and choose the "People" option rather than the "Nature" option. To keep the original details, you can also choose to lower the brightness. Mistake 2 Abuse of Contrast Sometime we would want to strengthen the contrast on an image to bring out some details you want to show. However, the abuse of the contrast would wash out the background. Of cause I don’t mean that you should never layer on the contrast on your image. What you need to do is to bring out fine contrasts across shadows and highlights, with precise exposure control. Solution: Please control the contrast in Moderation and make sure that the value doesn't go up to +20 strength for better display. Also, please combine the contrast with the proper warmth, Ambience, and Brightness effect on it. You can swipe vertically on the image to access the edit menu and after an option has been selected, just swipe horizontally to enhance. Mistake 3 Saturation in high level Post colorless photos on the social network would not draw anyone's eye and will get lost easily on the feed. In this way, before we make any posts, we may want to adjust the images in some way such as the saturation level. However, overdoing color and saturation can also be a rotten matter. Adding too much color and increase the saturation to very high levels would lead to the result that your pictures look faked. Solution: In order to make the photo looks a lot more lively and dreamy, you can try to add the proper Saturation under Tune Image options and swiping to the right until you find out the effect that comfort your eyes most. Also, you can try to use other effects such as Details, Brightness, Ambiance or Brush to adjust you image. So do you have any other mistakes you come across when using Snapseed?

What Are The Best Free Photo Editing Apps? By Ivy Bruce

Everyone wants make their photos pop and get more likes from others on the social medias like Facebook. Editing photos seems to become a must before they create a post. There are tons of apps that can be found from the Google Play. However, not all the apps are good enough to use. What are the best photo editing apps? 1. VSCO Cam 2. Snapseed 3. Instagram 4. Flickr Now, this article would talk about these four photo editing applications in details, which are all pretty popular among users. If you are interested in the apps, you can download them on your device and have a try yourself. VSCO Cam VSCO Cam is one of the best photo editing apps for both Android and iOS users. It started out as a paid app but now, you can download it for fully free. This app is divided into different sections for shooting, editing and sharing your photos and the editing tools include brightness, contrast, saturation, tint, crop, rotate, sharpness, highlights, shadows and so on. With VSCO Cam app, you are able to: 1. Shoot and edit your images with the superior mobile presets and advanced camera controls and then publish images or curate others to your VSCO profile. 2. Explore content or photos from the people you follow, curated work from the community, and exclusive editorial content from VSCO Originals. 3. Last but not least, you can find and follow friends and people from all over the world by joining the VSCO community. However, the VSCO Cam does have some cons when you edit your photos. For the effects in it, they do get the useless names like B1, X1, etc, which tells you nothing about what they are exactly for. Only when you choose the effect and then you can find out it also goes by the slightly-less-obscure name like Moody, Mellow, or Classic. In the other hand, some users may come across some bugs in update and could not use it well. Snapseed If you would care about the display of your photos, you must know the Snapseed app. Snapseed is a complete and professional photo editor developed by Google and is available for iOS and Android device. Not like the VSCO Cam, which is not available on tablets yet, you can have the Snapseed for your iPad or other tablets. The Snapseed app has amazing Tools and Filters. Not only with the basic tools like Rotate and Crop, it also allows users to adjust your image with Healing, Brush, Structure, HDR, Perspective, Lens Blur and so on. Select any one and simply swipe towards the right to increase its value or in the opposite direction to reduce it. In my opinion, Snapseed fits me better than the VSCO Cam. With so many tools and filters available, you can use the Snapseed to edit photos as you want and I think the company always focuses on the details and user experience and for me, I haven’t yet found out any limits or cons when using the app. Instagram Instagram, available in 25 languages, is a mobile photo-sharing application and service that allows users to share pictures and videos. In other word, it acts as a photo sharing social media. Thanks to Instagram, we can get much fun and knowledge and other phases of life. By using this app, you can join the community of over 500 million people and express yourself by sharing all the moments of your day. With Instagram, you are able to: 1. Edit your photos with filters and creative tools and combine multiple clips into one video. 2. Post or share photos and videos to your story or other social medias after editing. 3. Go live to connect with your friends and followers and follow your friends to see what they are doing. 4. Discover stories, photos and videos you like. … To use the Instagram app in a tricky way(eg. correctly use Hashtag, share Instagram photos across media and so on), you can become a much more popular around the world. Flickr Flickr, created by Ludicorp in 2004 and acquired by Yahoo in the next year, is an image hosting and video hosting website and web services suite. Most of the users would like to share and embed personal pictures with the app, and it is also widely used to host images in blogs and social media. Flickr has a great community of photographers just like the Instagram app. However, Flickr has advanced editing tools for better enthusiasts, which is the feature that Instagram app is lack of. In the other hand, Flickr doesn't restrict you to square photos and the built-in filters are fairly good to use. I think the only limit is that Flickr's Windows Phone app isn't as good as iOS and Android variants. Anyway, this app still worths to have a try. The above four recommended applications are all good to use for photos editing. They do have their pros and cons and choose which one to download is totally up to your own case.

Additional settings … The TouchRetouch is mainly designed for removing objects on an image. With its easy-to-use interface and the video tutorial within the app, you can easily get started. You are able to use the Lasso and Brush tool to capture unwanted elements in photos. At this moment, you may wonder why the app can do so well and others, even yourself, could not find out any track of photo editing. How come?

Differed from the function 1, you can remover the imperfections at once after you brush the objects instead of to tap on the "GO" button. But you still have to take care when you choose the object you want to repair as sometimes our finger may be too careless to brush. Function 3 Single-flick line removal The app proposed a new calculation to make it more smart and professional in removing line-like objects. You are able to mark only a section of a line and you can remove a whole line. You don't need to be precise as the app could find the line itself. What’s more, you could set the line thickness to thin, medium or thick to make your performance more convenient and professional. Function 4 Clone Stamp I think the most attractive function of the TouchRetouch app is the clone Stamp. What you need to do is to focus on the objects and choose it and then brush on the location you want to clone to. With the Clone Stamp, you can remove a defect or repair the background as well. And you can set up the stamps in size, hardness and transparency for better performance. However, I don’t think the editing result is perfect enough though it is an interesting tool. Of cause you can do more with the TouchRetouch. If you want to gain a greater understanding of this app, you can go on with it and both video and text-based tutorials have been added.

How to Choose a Micro SD Card for Your Android Phone By Ivy Bruce

As we all know, not all the smartphone can add an external storage to enlarge the storing space. If your phone has a MicroSD card slot, you can use it to expand your space for music, movies or even apps. However, it is not the fact that you can choose the capacity of a SD card as large as possible. And you need to select the correct one that fits your device. For instance, for LG V10, it can support 2TB capacity, but for Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, it only supports 200GB storage capacity. Know More About micro SD card And Choose a Suitable One for Your Android Phone What's the difference between SDHC and micro SDXC? When you choose to buy a microSD card, you would notice there are usually two kinds of SD card:micro SDXC and SDHC card for your choice. So what is the difference between the microSD formats?SDHC stands for "Secure Digital High Capacity" while SHXC stands for "Secure Digital eXtended Capacity". The difference between these two microSD formats is simply the amount of data they can store. SDHC cards have a capacity of 2GB to 32GB. Alternatively, SDXC cards can range from 32GB to 2TB. In this way, you can distinguish the micro SDXC and SDHC card easily. What does 'class' mean on a microSD card? Manufacturers use “speed classes” to measure an SD card’s speed. For micro SDXC and SDHC card, there is no difference in the quality or security or speed. The transfer speed depends on the "CLASS" of the card mentioned on it and not on whether it is a SDHC card or SDXC. The SD Association that defines the SD card standard doesn’t actually define the exact speeds associated with these classes, but they do provide guidelines. MicroSD card are available in various different speed classes — 10, 6, 4, and 2. 10 is the fastest, while 2 is the slowest. So a Class 2 card reads and writes data at 2 MB/s, while a Class 10 card does so at 10 MB/s. Class 2 is suitable for standard definition video recording, while classes 4 and 6 are suitable for high-definition video recording. Class 10 is suitable for “full HD video recording” and “HD still consecutive recording.” What does UHS mean on a micro SD card? UHS stands for Ultra High Speed, and uses a number in the letter U to denote the class. The UHS Speed Classes defined by the SD Association are UHS Speed Class 1 (U1) and UHS Speed Class 3 (U3). A UHS class 1 card writes at a minimum of 10MB/s and a UHS class 3 card writes at a minimum of 30MB/s. Recommended micro SD card: 1) SanDisk Extreme Pro SSD Featured with a standard 2.5-inch internal drive that's 7mm thick and supports SATA 3 (6Gbps) interface, the SanDisk Extreme Pro SSD has top performance and the longest warranty to date. The drive works in any application where a standard SATA hard drive is being used. Note that most new computers support SATA 3. If you've been holding off on getting an SSD for your computer, this is the drive you've been waiting for. It's priced competitively too. The suggested friendly pricing of $189 for 240GB, $369 for 480GB, and $599 for 960GB. 2)Samsung SSD 850 Evo The Samsung SSD 850 Evo delivers great performance with useful features, at an affordable price. The drive is available with up to 2TB of storage space, though it only carries a 5-year warranty instead of the 10 years the Pro model offers. With the 850 Evo, the drive's flash memory cells are stacked in up to 32 layers, which allows for significantly more cells in the same number of wafer bits. If you've been eyeing the Samsung SSD 850 Pro but can't quite afford it, the 850 Evo is an excellent alternative or even better choice. Memory cards are used in Digital Cameras, Music Player, Smartphones and even in laptops. So choosing a suitable microSD card for your Android device is very important if you want to extend the memory storage. After reading this article, have you learn how to choose a correct one?

Most devices will automatically mount an SD card when it recognizes the SD card or when the card is inserted into the Micro SD card slot. But if you own an Android phone, you need to mount the device manually.

External storage such as SD card can store application data and the user can remove them. Internal storage is seen as an integral part of your device. The 16GB, 32GB or 64 GB of a device points to the internal storage. As the manufacture of the device would set up the built-in applications for each single phone, which doesn’t allow you to remove unless you root your Android phones to gain superuser access. There is no doubt that there built-in applications would occupy most of the internal storage. In the other hand, the photos, videos, applications and so on you download would be saved to internal storage by default. So after you download several applications or videos on your device, you may run out of the internal storage space if it is not large enough.

Smart Lock: Easy to Access Galaxy S7 By Ivy Bruce

I believe that most people like to secure smartphones with screen lock. So do I. However, Screen lock can somehow be inconvenient to some extent. If we urge to make a phone call, it seems redundant. It is moreover annoying that we have to enter password/pattern every time we turn on the screen. Samsung must have considered this annoyance. That's why it comes out with Smart Lock, which allows users to access the device with ease. Smart Lock is a new feature on Samsung devices later than Galaxy S5, which can automatically unlock your mobile device as long as you are at trusted location or using your phone on trusted device. Galaxy S7 currently enables users to set up Trusted devices, Trusted places, Trusted voice and On-body detection. Follow the steps below and see how to do it! Part 1. How to Set up a Trusted Device for Smart Lock? Part 2. How to Set up a Trusted Place for Smart Lock? Part 3. How to Set up On-body Detection for Smart Lock? Part 4. How to Set up a Trusted Voice for Smart Lock? Part 5. How to Remove Screen Lock? Part 1: How to Set up a Trusted Device for Smart Lock? 1. Launch "Settings" app on Home screen or Notification Bar. 2. Go to "Lock screen and security" > "Secure lock settings" > "Smart Lock". 3. Draw the current pattern or enter current password/pin. 4. Tap "Trusted devices" > "ADD TRUSTED DEVICE" > "Bluetooth" or "NFC". 5. Select the device you want to trust, and tap "YES, ADD" You can set your trusted devices, such as Bluetooth watch, car's Bluetooth system, an NFC sticker on the phone dock in your car and so on. However, Bluetooth connections have a range of up to 100 meters. Once your Samsung phone detects the trusted device, it will keep unlocked. Part 2: How to Set up a Trusted Place for Smart Lock? 1. Launch "Settings" app on Home screen or Notification Bar. 2. Go to "Lock screen and security" > "Secure lock settings" > "Smart Lock". 3. Draw the current pattern or enter current password/pin. 4. Tap "Trusted places" > "Add trusted place". 5. Choose "YES" to allow access to GPS and pick a place. You can position your home or company, so the device will stay unlocked when it detects via GPS that you are at these places. Part 3: How to Set up On-body Detection for Smart Lock? 1. Launch "Settings" app on Home screen or Notification Bar. 2. Go to "Lock screen and security" > "Secure lock settings" > "Smart Lock". 3. Draw the current pattern or enter current password/pin. 4. Tap "On-body detection". 5. Switch "On" the bar. This function allows you phone to stay unlocked when it's being held or carried by you. However, from where I stand, I don't think this is good for protecting your privacy, because it cannot detect whether it's exactly you who is using the device. Thus, it's not recommended to keep this option on. Part 4: How to Set up A Trusted Voice for Smart Lock? 1. Launch "Settings" app on Home screen or Notification Bar. 2. Go to "Lock screen and security" > "Secure lock settings" > "Smart Lock". 3. Draw the current pattern or enter current password/pin. 4. Tap "Trusted voice". 5. Toggle on the "From any screen" switch. You will need to log in your Google account to do the next. 6. Hit the "Get Started" button and follow the instructions, and then tap "FINISH". 7. Turn on the "Trusted voice" switch. As long as you set up voice recognition, your Samsung phone keeps unlocked by detecting that it's you who is speaking. I personally regard this option as the best choice, for nobody can pretend the voice of yours. Part 5: How to Remove Screen Lock? I beg you may forget your Password/PIN/Pattern when you've been long using this feature. Though I wish this misery won't happen, what if it does happen, please read on and try to unlock your phone with the following solutions. 1. Try to unlock your device with Google Account. 2. Reset Phone to Factory Settings. 3. Remove Screen lock with Android Data Recovery. If you are tired of entering your password/pin/pattern each time when you're going to use your Samsung phone, you really should try Smart lock. However, if you don't want someone to use your unlocked device, you'd better use it with prudence.

How to Enable Smart Stay on Samsung Galaxy S7 By Ivy Bruce

"My screen keeps off when I was reading interesting articles on Facebook on my S7. Really dislike tapping on the screen now and then! That is totally driving me nuts!" A friend of mine complained to me about such a thing last night. It is really amusing because he even doesn't know that there is exactly a feature named Smart Stay on his own Samsung Galaxy S7, which can easily get him out of trouble. Part 1. How Does Smart Stay Work? Part 2. Why Should I Use Smart Stay? Part 3. How to Set up Smart Stay? Part 1: How Does Smart Stay Work? Smart Stay now is available on devices later than Samsung Galaxy S3. This feature takes the facial recognition via the front camera to sense whether you're looking at the screen, which will thus keep the screen from turning off in spite of the screen timeout setting. Therefore, once the Smart Stay is enabled, the screen keeps on when you're using your device even if the timeout time's up. Part 2: Why Should I Use Smart Stay? Have you ever pumped into problems like these: Screen dims when you're reading a long article on device; Screen turns off when you're watching funny GIF; Screen becomes dark when you're reading e-books on your phone; Really happened. Right? It can somehow be such an annoyance. What's more, on the one hand, if the screen keeps on when unoccupied, it really drains out the battery life of your phone. On the other hand, if the timeout time is short, the screen would soon be off, which is annoying either. So, kind of facing a dilemma. Thanks to the "smart" feature, you could set your screen timeout to its lowest limitation, so your screen will not dim quickly when you're using it. You won't have to tap on your screen over and over again to keep it active. As long as the camera can detect your eyes looking towards the screen, the screen will remain unlocked. Part 3: How to Set up Smart Stay? 1.Open "Settings" app. You can either swipe down the Notification Drawer and tap the setting icon, or launch it right on the screen. 2.Scroll down to "Display" and tap it. 3.Click on "Smart stay". 4.Toggle the switch to enable Smart Stay. There are also some notes you should know about Smart Stay as follow. Smart stay may not work in the following situations: •When the device is docked or not held upright. •When the front camera fails to detect face and eyes. •When the source of the light is behind you or when using the device in the dark. •When the front camera is being used in an application. Smart stay works best under the following conditions: •When the device is held steady and upright. •When the device is in a well-lit environment, but the screen is not in direct light. •When the front camera is not being used by other applications. So don't ever be bothered by your own screen! Try to turn Smart Stay on and enjoy playing with your Samsung phone.

The code is as below: With the code analysis, we can get the USB debugging automatically turned on relying on the program. When finished the above steps, you still cannot get USB debugging enabled yet. With Logcat, you can find that the code written in it still have no right to enable USB debugging, because "android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS" disallows common program to perform, and there must be a system signature or being put in /system/app directory. You can add two permissions in "AndroidManifest.xml" like follows: After pushing the Java program code in /system/app directory and add the 0644 permission in the .apk, you can restart your phone.
