Some examples would be the Samsung Galaxy Alpha and the Lenovo Vibe Shot. They both have very similar specs but a "lesser" battery. Not sure if a "lesser" battery would bother you. But at least there are others!!

This happened to me as well its either you use the original msging app deactivate the new one one or just use the new one. Which is a good thing because you wouldn't be dealing with 2 notifications at a time

But for those who still can't find the MISSING ICONS for the apps what I did was to access the HOME SETTINGS through the menu and RESET LAUNCHER.. It will reset how the screen looks like before.. It did not erase anything at all just reset how the icons were arranged in you screen. I have all the apps available now and just have it rearranged..thanks again though.. A lot helpful tips from you.

pLyx, 03 Sep 2015Thanks for the reply Big Game addict.. The option on the Storage section where we can use SD c... moreNo problem!!
Yeah, that's how it's supposed to work IF that option is there. Not every device has it. An "out of the box" AFP didn't. Mine didn't anyway (internal storage only on mine so far). I only have the 1 option and didn't manage to get a SD card for my AFP as of yet (lazy me!!) to try out any other possible option.
With your Summoners War (I gotta try that game when I have time!!) it's that same type of problem as I was saying before where the "mover" apps have a problem trying to use SD cards. So yeah, it would look like a bug but it's really not. The most likely case is that you'll see that problem at random for any given app / game. But for the pic files you either take or download, that should work fine when the SD card is set to the default download / install location.
For pics, there's a bit more to it.....
The stock camera app didn't show me any option to store pics/videos I take on the SD card. Could be just me not having a SD card yet. Then again, I have seen that option not there in other devices WITH a SD card. Also, there are several ways pics can be downloaded. So the controlling app (browser(s), skype, game graphics / ads, camera app(s), etc) would be the setting source for where they go. Your main setting says SD card by default. The controlling app in question says to internal storage.... the controlling app usually wins.
By the sound of it, Summoners War is still saying internal storage for downloading and installing. When it does that and the rest of the game isn't there as expected (it's on the SD card), there's the problem. That additional data would also include the graphics. Unfortunately, you won't have much of anything for real control of the download location for games that are set like that.
Off hand, you only have one way to find out if your other apps/ games are going to work or not when install to the SD card is the default. Good luck!! XD Again, I will mention the problem when a SD card goes "bye bye" for whatever reason. That's very effective at making your apps, pics, and etc go with it. A large majority of my previous phone stops working all together if I take the memory card out of it. That memory card has not come out in 5+ years!! But the phone still works fine!! hahahahaha
4GB left? "Download happy" much?!! hahahahaha Take your pics / videos and dump them to a PC (backups) or something to free up some space. I know that one has a "thanks captain obvious" coming to me but you'd be amazed at how many overlook that one!!
The problem with all smartphones nowadays is the size. I am not a fan of a massive screen smartphones bcos I have small hands & I could easily drop these expensive gadgets in no time! I wish there is a similar version of this Alcatel Flash Plus in a 4.7 inch screen size.

You're mostly right. There WAS an option for moving things. But that only worked on ... moreThanks for the reply Big Game addict.. The option on the Storage section where we can use SD card as a default write disk means that if i ticked it the games i download or pictures i take will automatically be send to my SD card? i once tried this but for some reason when i play Summoners War, it needs to re-download all the additional data. i then switch back to internal memory and it works fine, no need to download additional data. i don't know if its just a bug or not cause i didn't try opening other games. since then i haven,t ticked it again. can you help me on this one? i only have 4gb left on my internal memory as of now. Thanks in advance
Before, they said it will be released on physical stores at mid august but still it's not available on any outlet, it's already September :(
When can this be released on physical stores ?

The Play Store has the chance to make it "quick n painless" IF the games are really still installed. That "should" just put the icons back for you to re-group them and not change much of anything else.
You can try to run them to see if they really are still installed from Settings / Apps.... there's a "Launch App" button in there (or at least there should be one!!).
I bought this unit quite a week or two.
I just getting worried if my unit is damaged or what, Well to tell you guys the truth its sicked charging time ranges from 4-5 hours.
Not to mention it has 3.5k lit batt.
anyone experiencing the same concern?
Crimson08, 28 Aug 2015Is the camera quality good, specially the 8mp Front Cam??
How about the sound quality?The camera is quite good. Especially the rear one.
This phone beautiful but this set kannad , telugu, tamil language is supporting plz tell me hoe to update this set
MISSING APPS...I had this phone for a month now and it was working fine just until this morning that i cant find my games folder with all the games I downloaded from play store. Tried to check it in play store since I might have uninstalled them mistakenly but it says it is still installed but really can't find the entire folder I hope some one can help..
Thanks for the vote. How do I send you details so you can ask me something via FB as you mentioned?? I didn't get an account here!! Either way, I don't mind sharing info like I been doing to others that simply ask IF I happen to know. Or you can simply keep asking here like you and others have been doing. No big deal for me. With any luck, someone else with better info than what I have would also do the lot of us a "solid" and share it.
But as it turns out, I'm biased towards this phone because it has been working out great so far for me. So I just decided to share what all happened to me just the same as others did. You and others are posting biased info because something not so great happened to you (according to your posts.... NOT some poke or joke towards you / others). Next thing I know, people just kept on asking. Ok....So I kept on posting!! hahahahaha
I happen to be an article and game guide writer with quite a tech background. NO, this is NOT some paying gig for me here. Again, I was just sharing what all happen to me with this phone. But as a result, things tend to get lengthy and rather detailed!!
I'll never claim to "know it all" but I do know a thing or 6 here and there to be able to get by!! That usually works!! XD
Big Game Addict, 28 Aug 2015@ pLyx You're mostly right. There WAS an option for moving things. But that only worked on ... moreseems that you know a lot. can i find you on FB so i can ask you stuff about my phone. hehehe. but seriously.
@Big Game Addict
Yeah! like watever! does it matter if i ask these questions before i ask myself? i was like gathering some info for those people who already got these phones..so nega
You're mostly right. There WAS an option for moving things. But that only worked on some devices. It depended on the device having 2 storages (phone and internal). The apps would be sent to the opposite of the default install location and not a SD card at all. The AFP doesn't have the 2 storages. IF I remember correctly, there was some sorta stop to moving apps to SD cards. I can't even remember why or when!! But that IS the reason why many "mover" apps don't work properly (as seen in the Reviews section of the Play Store for so many "mover" apps) or at all on so many different devices. Previously, on a Galaxy Mini (Android 2.2), I was using App2SD Pro and it worked great. But with something like that, I have no idea if it would work on anything these days like it did on that phone. The downside to "mover" apps is that if the memory card fails or goes "vanishing act" (we ALL know "vanishing acts" can happen), your apps go with it.
@ Putongbangus AND pLyx
I just tried it, literally just now, and the edit area grows (to a certain extent) with the message being created instead of 2 puny lines. It's got a lot of features, some included, some you have to pay for IF you want them. But sure enough, it's got the bigger/growing text editing area. It's still no comparison to the messaging edit area of something like the stock Froyo messaging app, but it's working nicely so far. Tried it with voice to text and had no problems. Then again, I have no accent that can be easily detected. That always helps!!
YAATA seems to have problems with MMS. But since I don't use or care about MMS, that was no bother for me. Unfortunately, not everyone can say the same so you might want to try another messaging app if that's going to be a problem for you.
Just don't forget to set any messaging app you try as the default first. YAATA displays the option to set it as the default during the first run of it and stays there until you do set it as the default (one tap done). Ok, that makes changing the default vastly quicker and easier!!
