When the android marshmallow is release for this phone? So far only planned for marshmallow. I want to know release date for this phone.
hey buddy, does the sylus work with this latest padfone s.. if yes then I wish to but it with the dock.. thanks in advance
Again I post. About double tap to wake, now I suggest KnockOn by Jawomo, till small app works very good in my Padfone S. Double tap to off works 99%, while double tap to wake works 90%. Not perfect, but it's OK to be use for daily use.
Legolas10, 02 Mar 2016Have you try Knockr from Gplay knock on screen to wake up?And I will add note again. Today I install the Knockr again. I gave 1 star at Play Store, very bad app. I disable the knock code by setting 'nothing' on knock section. What was the result? Afer the screen of my Padfone S turn off, when I press power button, it show knock lock, I tried many code, from default 1234 to whatever code, nothing work, and I can't get rid of the knock code, except I restart my phone.
For users who like smart screen on off without tap power button, may try Gravity Screen or Smart Screen On Off by Lutinh Developer.
Gravity Screen was good, I had used before, it would screen off when lie the phone to the flat thing (table, bed, etc) and screen on when user takes the phone. By moving to the right or left it could do too.
Smart Screen On Off is also good, I use it. It has double tap to screen off (very good), but no double tap to wake up. To wake up the screen, you can make your finger or hand near the proximity sensor, it will do. So far i like this app.
Yes, it is not perfect, sometimes I find this app not running 100% in background. I found it when the screen off, I made my hand near the proximity sensor, it didn't do anything. When I screen on by pressing power button and cheked the running application inside Settings menu, I found that app show 0 services. So you need open the Smart Screen On Off and exit again, it will run again in background (can be seen by pulling down the notification bar).
Not perfect, but it is useful enough for users who dislike tapping power button ti screen on the phone.
Still no new firmware download, the latest is still Lollipop WW 43.
About more than 2 days ago, I flashed my device to KitKat 18. KitKat 17 I got twice restart by itself.
Several days ago I flash again to Lollipop 43, used for 4 days, experienced restart by itelf 2 times, first when browsing internet, second when play game using ePSXe, so I flash back to KitKat but tried KitKat 17.
Legolas10, 02 Mar 2016Have you try Knockr from Gplay knock on screen to wake up?Knockr didn't work very well. I had tried many screen on/off app, some of them worked half function only, for example, double tap to switch off screen only (no double tap to wake up screen). Default double tap feature available is better like my previous LG G2.
Legolas10, 02 Mar 2016Have you try Knockr from Gplay knock on screen to wake up?No,I didn't. I use Gravity screen. It is better I think.
I have used it for more than 21 days now in KitKat 18 firmware version on Padfone S, no restart by itself problem. So far it is good.
For users who like double tap or using hand near the proximity to screen off the LCD, you might be want to install smart screen on/off. I use this app, now my Padfone S will turn off screen by double tap and hand cover the proximity sensor and screen on when hand cover the proximity sensor.
After several days of used, I went back to KitKat 18 again. So far I don't face random restart by itself in KitKat.
I had installed the latest Lollipop firmware (WW 188.8.131.52), still the same, random reboot by itself sometimes happen
