Samsung Galaxy S II :: Skyrocket Can't Change Brightness In Menu
Nov 7, 2011
So I ended up returning my GS2 today to upgrade to the GS2 skyrocket since the phone was announced a couple days after getting mine. Made the trade and got $50 back since it was on sale suh-weet!Anyways first thing i did was turn off auto brightness. Normally on my GS2 i would just adjust it myself via the notification bar. Well I decided to go to settings>display then tried to click on brightness. Brightness is greyed out and unclickable. What is up with this? I can change it via the notication bar or the widget to set brightnesses from it, but cant go through settings display to change it.
When I want to manually set the screen brightness (or change the "mode", called "sk�rmtilstand" in Danish), changes have no effect. The brightness bar is greyed out. Also, I have noticed that turning of "system battery saving" (the first of the two options offered under energy saving in the settings) changes have no effect.
On my new SGSII Skyrocket from AT&T, the battery indicator is inaccurate. From my observation, when I fully charge my phone and then take it off the charger, the battery indicator stays at 100%, even after some use. I was not able to reliably determine when it finally realizes the battery isn't fully charged, but most importantly this incorrect "fully charged" reading impacts the phones ability to recharge - since it thinks its fully charged it wont recharge! This is not a bug in the battery app, I tried a few, so I think it is a firmware bug.The workaround is to power cycle the phone after a little use, it starts back up with a correct battery reading and will recharge the battery when you plug it in.My battery life is about 4 hours, btw, so I'm constantly recharging....
Is it me or has anyone else experienced their phone response time going slower since updating to the latest android operating system especially the screen changes.
Also I like to keep my screen on the max brightness but very frequently I find I have to go into the setting to lift the brightness up. It seems to keep dropping down to the lowest level all the time. It didn't before the software upgrade.
i like the screen display nice and bright so when i go into - settings - display - brightness - menu i untick the automatic brightness box and move the slider almost all the way to the right and press ok to exit - leaving the automatic brightness box unticked .but the next time i go to use my phone either to text or make or receive a call somehow the automatic brightness box has a tick in it and the screen goes into the automatic brightness settings by going dim again .whatever i do and however many times i untick the automatic brightness box it still manages to tick itself the next time i use the phone?
i've just rooted my phone with PINGPONG app and I was wondering if there is any app that could give me the option to chage the grid size in the app menu. I am aware that I can change the grid size on the main screen but when you do that there is a difference between the size of the icons on your mai menu and app menu.
I have a problem with my SGS 2.The problem is if I press the Menu Touch key nothing happens.The problem is since the version 2.3.I've installed yesterday ICS with the same result.But if I press the back Touch Key the Menu TouchKey lights on.
My S6 keeps randomly changing brightness even though auto brightness is off. And so I found this option via search within settings, which may very well be exactly what I was looking for but couldn't seem find it in the settings menu in developer option(which has already been enabled).....
I have been having a few problems with my phone lately. Sometimes when I start the unit up in the morning no icons appear on my home screen although when I go into my apps they are all there. I would have to restart the phone a couple of times before everything would appear. Now I seem to have a permanent problem the touch sensitive buttons on the bottom of my phone for getting to the settings and the 'back' button do not light any more, but they do function.
When I press the menu button I have a list of apps on the phone a slow flick does not scoll down the screen smoothly, the same happens with my music list. Playing argry birds as the bird flies through the air there is a moment of jerk in the motion at mid flight. I have installed flash 11
I can't access my setting menu, press the left "button" and the settings option is there I press it and the menu pops up for about a second then goes back to the home screen, if I go in through apps menu its the same, its a stock S2 about a month old on T mobile uk.
I have recently bought SGS2. I have found that at times, my "Back" key needs to be touched little harder compared to the "Menu" key and both are not having same kind of sensors?Is this a normal behavior? I have checked with the seller who told that this is normal.
I've bad echo on voice calls my friends tell me whenever they ring.... As in they can hear there own echo. everything is ok my end. I installed villaintweaks 1.3.1 as I was told there was a fix fire this. I installed the noise cancellation fix.... But still it remReally would like to get this echo. I don't like having to keep pressing menu-noise reduction off during every call.Also notice that if I remove my protective case the echo disappears completely....but I don't want to leave the phone unprotected.Also, is it possible to fully remove villaintweaks and all of its data(and tweaks that I installed) from the phone? Would a normal uninstall work, or would I have to do something else.
I am having a serious problem with my Galaxy S6. The keyboard and any pop up menu for selection are not visible. I can see the keyboard and any selection menu when I rotate the screen then it vanishes very quickly.
I have disabled keyboard, cleared data and cache then restarted but it doesn't seem to work.
I have wiped all the cache partition, done a factory reset, flashed a stock 5.1.1 but the problem still exists.
Have a Galaxy S2 on Sprint network and out of nowhere yesterday the home/menu/back/search buttons stopped working and the phone is running really slow. It came back for like 5 min yesterday afternoon but then started again. I've already done the factory reset and it's still the same way. If I press the call, message, contact buttons on the home screen nothing works. Can someone tell me what to do?
I just purchase my sg2 phone yesterday. Unfortunately, my brother has used my phone last night and register the Samsung account in it by using his email or id. When I tried to change the account, it cannot be done cause I have to do the factory reset in privacy setting (which will erase all my personal info and downloaded applications). I don't want that to happen as well. Plus, my my brother can't even remember what the password he has used for the Samsung account I'm very pissed off now that my Samsung account belong to him and the fact that I can't do the factory reset because of him. I'll mention again, he forgot the password he used for MY SAMSUNG ACCOUNT IN MY SG2.
I have bought SGS2 just 2 days back and did setup for rarely used email id in the icon Email.. Now I wanted to change this email ID to other ID... But there is no option to change this ID.. change this ID
On my Android Eeepad tablet I can change the DNS by long-pressing the router id in WI-FI settings, then select the DNS1 field and insert a new DNS.But the hard-press routine doesn't work with my Galaxy SII. I can't find a way to get at the DNS setting. The only option that pops up is Forget Network.I want to set up my unrooted SII with a DNS from unotelly.com so that I can use their system to let me access Netflix USA from Canada. Although I can achieve access while at home merely by changing the DNS setting in my router, I'm not always on my home network and would like the SII to be able to access the unotelly DNS when I'm elsewhere.
Does any know without downloading an app if there is any way of changing what Smileys appear when you type txts because for example there are no android angry faces or worried faces etc... in fact the smiley faces are very limited and to be honest I much prefer the standard round faces to the android ones?
