40,000+ Ways to Customize the Android Home Screen on Your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (No Root Required)

Customizing isn’t all rooting and ROMs—there are plenty of ways to customize your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or other Android device without gaining superuser access. One of the easiest ways is to install an Android launcher, sometimes called a home launcher, that matches your style.

The launcher you already have, TouchWiz Home, is essentially just an app that controls the user interface of the homescreen, allowing you to view widgets and open apps easily. Since this is just an app, it makes it easy to swap it out with another without rooting or gaining any special privileges.

How to Zoom In & Out Using Only One Finger Instead of Two on Your Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Due to its enormously awesome size, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 usually takes two hands to maneuver through photos and texts, write emails, and get directions on the map.

Even simple tasks like zooming in and out require a couple hands; one to hold the device and one to do the zooming. If you’re extremely flexible, you might be fine using only one hand for zooming, but consider yourself lucky.

Still, whether you have one hand or two hands on the device, you’re still going to use a minimum of two fingers to pinch to zoom. However, there is a way to only use one finger, which helps us less… more

How to Use Any Photo or Video as a Self-Destructing Snapchat on Your Samsung Galaxy Note 2

I’ve already covered how you can automatically save Snapchat photos and videos to your Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and how to take screenshots of Snapchats sent to you without the sender knowing, but there’s one other thing about Snapchat that could use some softModding.

Currently, the only types of photos and videos that you can send on Snapchat are ones you take directly through Snapchat’s camera, moments before you send it. What if you take an awesome pic with your normal Android camera and want to share that as a self-destructing Snapchat?

How to Feed Apps Fake Info to Keep Private Data Safe on Your Samsung Galaxy Note 2

While we’re usually responsible for leaking our own private information through mediums like Facebook, there are other times when we mistakenly and unwillingly allow certain applications to scour through our personal data.

But we can stop this, and it’s pretty easy to do on a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or other Android device. For this softMod, we’ll be using XPrivacy from Android dev Marcel Bokhorst, which prevents apps from accessing and leaking sensitive data by feeding… more

How to Easily Access Your Camera from the Lock Screen on Your Samsung Galaxy Note 2

The transition from an iPhone to a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or other Android device can be a tough one. A vastly different operating system and the ability to customize anything and everything might be too much for some people. Taking in all that new, while having to let go of the old, can be as daunting as climbing Mount Everest.

Many iOS users approach switching over to Android with a lot of hesitance, especially when they don’t want to lose features they’ve grown to love on their iPhones. One such feature is the lock screen camera.

How to Stop Lag & Save Battery on Your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 by Hibernating Background Apps

If your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has been feeling sluggish lately, or you’ve noticed the battery not lasting as long as usual, the problem could be that you have too many applications running in the background.

Snapchat, Instagram, and Facebook, among other apps, like to run persistently, refreshing all of the time in order to update you with new notifications. This constant use of resources creates lag on your Android device, as it needs to repeatedly work and strain, even when you’re not specifically using the apps.

How to Manage All Your Cloud Storage Accounts from One App on Your Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Cloud storage looks pretty good compared to the heavy restrictions that hard drives and other types of external memory carry. The cloud is not only limitless in what it can hold, but it can also easily be accessed from any device that has Internet—your smartphone, work computer, personal laptop, tablet, and more. While accessing a specific cloud storage system like Dropbox or Google Drive may be easy on your Samsung Galaxy Note 2, managing all of them individually can not only get confusing, but also stressful on your smartphone’s memory (ironically).

How to Get a Better GPS Lock on Your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 So You Never Get Lost Again

Driving in your car can cause a pretty spasmodic GPS connection on your Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Making a lot of turns, speeding past large buildings, and going underneath trees and highway underpasses can all disrupt your GPS signal, making it difficult for the satellites (in the sky) to get a good lock on your location. According to them, you’re in that blue circle. Somewhere. Probably.

Your phone’s either dead or barely hanging on with a few minutes of life left, and you only have a small window of time to charge it before you need to head out. Sure, you can charge it for the few minutes you have, but what’s the point if your device is going to die again in several minutes?

Taiwan's FTC investigating Samsung for defaming HTC on local online forums

Fabricated Internet posts praising Samsung at the expense of HTC products has landed the South Korean company in hot water with Taiwan’s Fair Trade Commission.

Taiwan’s FTC said on Tuesday it was investigating the matter, and could punish Samsung for up to NT$25 million (US$835,000) if it is found to be in violation of fair trade rules.

The investigation occurs after a local site, called TaiwanSamsungLeaks, accused the South Korean company of “evil marketing” for covertly criticizing rival products through anonymous Internet users. As evidence, the site published documents allegedly from Samsung’s hired marketing firm cataloguing the different forum posts it made last year on local gadget sites.

The topics covered included a user complaining that his girlfriend’s HTC One X phone was constantly crashing, and how Samsung’s Galaxy Note phone was superior to HTC‘s Sensation XL handset.

Is Samsung About to Get Samsunged?

By Evan Niu, CFA, The Motley Fool

Filed under:

Pop quiz. Name this company:

A vertically integrated South Korean conglomerate with an extensive supplier relationship with Apple has ambitious hopes in the smartphone market. The company will aggressively imitate the products of rivals in the pursuit of success, and also further integrate additional key components, such as investing more heavily in its own mobile processors.

Time’s up
Pencil’s down. The correct answer? LG Electronics.

That’s right; LG is in the process of doing to Samsung what Samsung did to Apple. LG has just unveiled a new “Value Pack” of software upgrades for its Optimus G Pro, and some of the features that the company is adding are straight out of Samsung’s playbook.

LG‘s Smart Video pauses videos when the user looks away, an obvious carbon copy of Samsung’s Smart Pause. There’s also the Dual Camera feature, which simultaneously takes pictures using both sensors, and is exactly like Samsung’s Dual Shot. This is all for a device that already looks identical to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2 (except without the stylus).

Galaxy Note 2 (left) vs. Optimus G Pro (right). Sources: Samsung and LG.

The Optimus G Pro was unveiled at Mobile World Congress in February, so it technically predates the Galaxy S4 that it also resembles. The 5.5-inch phablet isn’t expected to launch in the U.S. until May, though, which comes after the Galaxy S4.

The bad news for Samsung is that there’s little stopping LG from successfully using its own strategy against it. One of the benefits of enormous marketing budgets, however, is that Samsung has been able to build its Galaxy brand.

Another big marketing spender
While smaller rivals like HTC simply can’t keep up with Samsung’s marketing budget (even if HTC offers higher-quality products), larger competitors such as LG have more of a chance. Last year, LG spent $1.1 billion on advertising. When you add in other below-the-line marketing expenses like promotions ($652 million) and commissions ($1.6 billion), we’re talking about more than $3.3 billion in marketing.

That’s more than the $1 billion that Apple spent in fiscal 2012 (but less than Samsung) on advertising ,and Apple doesn’t really use below-the-line marketing as much. The Mac maker doesn’t typically offer very many promotions, and most of its sales are conducted through its online store or retail stores, where sales reps aren’t compensated with commissions.

Android loyalty isn’t Samsung loyalty
Android consumers have shown their fickleness before. It seems like just yesterday that HTC was the Android champion, but that was 2010. Even for users loyal to the platform, they’re normally not loyal to the OEM brand. It’s quite conceivable that another Android vendor could supplant Samsung in exactly the same way that Samsung displaced HTC.

Source: IDC.

Maybe it won’t be LG; maybe it’ll be Chinese vendors like ZTE or Huawei, both of which showed up on the global top-five radar last year. This may be more likely, since
