> In reply to shweta67 @ 2013-06-18 21:00 from Hkqq - click to readFor me I use my P3100 watching live channels on ilive.to and other recorded TV shows and when it is time to sleep, I put it to stream FM radio via TuneIn app all night long.

With JB 4.1.2 upgrade its UI looks like a big smartphone, like a phablet as others may say.

That makes sense actually if samsung doesn’t give smart stay feature, noticing from its performance and specs that the front camera is too weak to detect eye glancing or blinking. Though I read about the presence of this feature from here (use the below keywords to search the article with gooogle and click the first result, GSMa considered the link to the webpage as a spam) :

65624 samsung galaxy tab 2 310 android 4.1.2 jelly bean update now rolling out in india

I use my tab daily for browsing and to have some fun.. when I get bored, then I use it as hot spot to my laptop then browsing internet and to have some fun. LOL why my activities still the same . . . :D

> In reply to shweta67 @ 2013-06-18 14:04 from Hkqs - click to readGo to settings> display to see whether your tab has smart stay option or not. Pause function can be checked while recording video. If you can't pause during recording means it's not available in 4.1.1. With pop-up play you can watch video in small window while using other app. Group play is Samsung's own feature where you can play a game together with others via Samsung hub - guess this is really an unimportant feature for you, right? La'Fleur apps are probably market dependant and present only in version 4.1.2. No one from India told about this, while I read it is available for viet nam and indonesian version and maybe to other regions. It is the same features I guess which are available exclusively in Samsung La'fleur edition smartphones (pink s3 mini, rose gal tab 2 7.0, samsung citrus etc).

I have not tried that on my P3100 with JB 4.1.2

I will check it when I get home.

> In reply to shweta67 @ 2013-06-17 19:33 from Hkqr - click to readSince you're on 4.1.1 already, I think there would be no problem of installing 4.1.2 update. This version comes with some new features (dunno if some of them already present in your 4.1.1 tablet, pls check) such as pause function in video camera, smart stay, group play, pop-up play, blocking mode and more. I dunno about 4.1.2 for india, but some regions also got 'Le Fleur' apps useful for female users.

Screen guard doesn't influence the sensors.The ghost apps usually use magnetic sensor for EMF readings and mic to record sound - ghost sound, if they can speak. :D I tried firstly a ghost detector app featuring radar, EMF (to detect energymagnetic field changes usually caused by supranatural activities, wow!) and mic to communicate (lol) with spirits (lol v2.0). But none of those features seem promising (hehe, is there any among these ghost apps seems promising..), EMF reading seems confusing with its inaccurate fluctuations, communication using microphone... well, to me it's totally failed, word or message appears randomly irrelevant with my questions. In short, I'm skeptical if this app worth my rate. However I found a more scientifical methode for this hunting activity with Ghost EVP Analyzer (Adobe Air is required), It essentially is a voice recorder and a very good one at that. You can use it as a substitute or additional voice recorder on ghost hunts. So far haven't seen any ghost detected with my tab, where are they? :(

Btw, Now i am running on 4.2.2 (cynagenmod 10.1). There are some real nice features such as multi user in 4.2.2.
Worth a try. I felt games run much smoother in 4.2.2 (or Cynagenmod?)

As I said, it depends on the country from where you purchased the unit. No matter where you bring the unit, it's update will still go back to its mother country where it was released.
