zabady, 08 Jul 2013how do i get apps that require internet connection to work on wifi connection only and not on ... moreif you have wifi it should ALWAYS use wifi first.
so if you enable both wifi and 3g data it should always use wifi as the wifi priority is higher then 3r priority.
however if you have a poor wifi signal and strong 3g signal and have the settings checked to avoid bad wifi connections it might be that its using 3g rather then wifi.
so in wifi settings check that you have that disabled.
so wifi > menu > advanced > uncheck the checkbox at the second option.
and when your there also set wifi to stay on in sleep otherwise it switches to 3g as soon as the screen goes off.

how do i get apps that require internet connection to work on wifi connection only and not on mobile data??
SMITA TULI, 07 Jul 2013Can anyone tell me about it"s battery life????Depends on your usage as with any phone. If u use it just for phone calls and texs it is fine. If u use it as a games console you can kill it quickly. But that is the same as any phone. Just get a spare battery which is something u can not do with all phones!
i bought bit from Korea and still no updates provided yet, i am still using 4.0.3.
i want to update to jelly bean
how can i update
please help me to find easiest and safest way to update.
starting to love this phone with some proper managing of apps and system setting..i was able to improve hard games vs battery without root(though i rooted it once but re-unroot it by reinstalling firmwares using kdz :p) still im hoping for any possible future official updates..(lockscreens,notif light and qslide) :D
mas39, 06 Jul 2013This tegra 3 chip is shocking, while it's great for gaming, power efficiency is so poor, as an... moresorry to burst your bubble but the snapdragon 800 uses even more power then the tegra 3 when all gpu cores and the 4 cores are active.
if you want preformance power usage is gonna be your compromise period there is NOTHING you can do about this.
the new generation cores including snapdragon 600/800 and tegra 4 are all even more power hungry then the current quad cores this is a fact and not only are they more power hungry by default they also run up to and over 2GHZ cousing them to use even more.
if you have poor apps that cant utilize the cpu partly this will dain your battery in record time.
so dont think you got a bad deal with the tegra 3 as even tho thenew soc's are all 28NM they use quite a bit more juice then current soc's.
this is why they all have massive batterys over 3000 mah and still preform average on normal use tests (gaming will be fatal for them).
if you want battery life go for a phone with a older soc possibly a dual core and downclock it or disable some cores (gpu cores also).
if yout not battery life isnt gonna improve its gonna get worse.
remember these are phones with the capability of making pictures browsing and playing games.
its not there main task and if you do your gonna have to compromise somewhere.
Overall it's a decent phone cheaper than some of the other rival phones so if you are on a tight budget I would recommend this, but personally I am going to upgrade sometime between September and November from this to the Sony Xperia Z Ultra should be quite an amazing experience with a full hd 6.44" display and snapdragon 800 chip inside.
This tegra 3 chip is shocking, while it's great for gaming, power efficiency is so poor, as an example I was playing a game while the phone was recharging and to my horror, within 10 minutes the phone shut down, realised that even though the battery was supposed to be recharging it was actually losing charge which is very poor indeed, just imagine what the tegra 4 would do which is why my next phone is going to have the splendid snapdragon 800 chip, should be alot better.
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2013Its the same with me i have tried everything that google play has put in its help section but ... moretheres a couple of questions that need answering just to be sure.
- do you have a google account and is it attatched to your phone (can test if this works properly by running google talk/hangouts)
-if the answer to the previous is yes and it works in talk/hangouts did you sync the account? (options>accounts and syn. > gmail adress tap everything when its set to manual).
- do you have a firewall active in your phone or the network where you try to download ? if so disable it and see if this fixes the problem.
- did you try clearing the google play store cache file? (options > apps > google play store > erase data and cache > reboot the phone and try again.
do the same with download manager/management.
other then that i cant think of anything thats causing a problem. good luck trying these things.
user4xhd, 03 Jul 2013hi
i live in india, and bought it from korea.

to install custom roms you need to manualy flash a EU open rom then unlock your phone and then flash the custom rom.

amir, 30 Jun 2013Hi everybody
Help me please.
I bought this phone about a month ago.
I have some problems wi... moreThe first caller id issue seems to be brought up on rare ocations on the net but by people with all different phones so this is most likely not a issue with your phone but ith a app on your phone or a bug in the fsoftware.
the only possible way to try and see if this is true is making a backup with the build in backup app (make a seperate backup of your contacts) and do a factory reset.
after the reset restore your contacts and have people call you to test it.
if you have any alle that has anything to do with contacts get rid of it and test before the factory reset.
second sounds unlikely to be a hardware issue seeing your not holding it so once more im lokking at a app that might be responsible for this.
ad for battery life this most definitly is a app issue and have bin talked about a lot here.
start with removing all battery monitors wakelock monotors and taks killers/managers you installed.
then disable mapps, google streetview and google+ and delete facebook app if you have in installed.
its a bad app i tested it again after months 1 day ago and lost 30% of my battery to it so deleted it again.
also disable sync in options (you only need to sync after you make changes to your phone like adding contacts in whatsapp or caller contacts and you can do this manualy by clocking on it in that list.
make sure your bluetooth and gps are off and make sure location services are disabled (if not apps may be allowed to enable gps shortly to see your location).
disable 3g when you have wifi and disable wifi when you go outdoors and dont have wifi.
with all that disabled you should se a significant improvement in battery life.
manual management of the phone is a hassle at first and you will make mistakes and curse because you have no internet at times (because you forgot to turn it on) but the benefits are greater then the hassle.
if you could post some stats (screen on time + total time active without gaming) per full charge we can tell you if this is in the normal range.
good luck in solving your problems.
Well its amazing to call myself a proud 4xhd user, its just amazing..its sad that the production of this device has been ceased by the manufacturer...
i would recommend to use it once...
Ahmad, 29 Jun 2013I have a big problem in downloading anything from the internet , i even can't download any app... moreis this 3g only or also wifi?
can you give us details about your signal strength for wifi and or 3g if you use it?
and can you open websites and use gtalk/whatsapp?
core disable, 30 Jun 2013I've got the same battery problem. I'm considering install app to manage the core.
LGGearB... morehi i prefer quadgearbox it just disables the 2 cores and leaves the other 2 running on 1.5ghz.
this keeps everything smooth and stil you have a gain in batterylife.
the problem from not being able to turn the 2 cores back on lies within some android apps but is easy to get arruond.
the problem excists because some apps keep the cores awake for to long this means as the cores are actrive you cannot swotch the other 2 cores on as a ap is active.
if you really want or need to (which i cant immagine) turn the 2 cores back on just reboot and disable all apps trou application manager> active apps and turn on the 2 cores.
or just tap the turn back on button a few times it will turn back on ive done it many times to test.
the only disadvantage is you cannot downclock the cores but in my opinion downclocking is bad.
the higher mhz the cores run themore power they consume and to my knowledge the power preformance ration isnt linear.
this means that if at 500 mhz the core uses 1 watt on 1500 mhz the core doesnt use 3 watts but more like 3.5 watts (dont know the exact numberts its a example).
this makes having 2 cores active the wiser choice because you can run 2 cores @750mhz for the same task and use less power.
unless you ofcourse underclock a LOT like a 800 mhz cap on both cores then its usefull but im not sure the phone stays smooth then.
