Guys, another samsung Ace Duos s7562 problem: phone is switching off by itself after abt 2 minutes.
Still has about 35% charge.

Any ideas ?

Parwath, is the wifi turned on, on the device? If so, it turns off on its own after some time. This is apparently a common issue with the Ace series of phones, and my phone has the same issue. The only way out is to turn on the wifi only when needed. If the wifi is left on, and the phone is not being used, it switches off. You can google 'Samsung Sleep of Death' to see how common it is.

My phone runs the latest fimrware, and has no updates available for download too, when i checked. :(

Benny, neither wifi nor BT was not on, at least not today morning when it shut-off multiple times, often immediately after switching on.

Hi Guys,

I am asking for a phone suggestion on behalf of a friend of mine. His company has asked him to select an android phone for about 20k (can stretch the budget slightly to 22k) which they will provide him. Google Nexus is not an option. He is ok with all brands like Sony/Samsung/HTC but not Micromaxx/Karbon. Phone usage will be mainly Mails/social networking however the phone should be capable of running android games. Please suggest some android models.

Thanks in Advance.

Showed 100% charge last night. Took it off charger before going to sleep. Ph was off by morning, with the charge dropping down to 18%. A couple of on-off cycles, and the charge was down to 12%. So I have now discharged it fully, and set it back to charging. For the fresh charging, after 30 minutes, it has just crossed 1%.

I suspect battery problem, but would like to hear from anyone else who has experienced this.

He mentioned the same in his ad

Reason - screen size (it is big)
Chipset - Old one (better than new)

What does the battery status screenshot say?
Also, could you please try CPU SPY and see if the phone goes to deep sleep without any issues?

I have added this in the description of the app (takes a while to appear on the google play, hopefully this will explain the way it works.
I have released version 2.01 (should load soon). This adds many features on the screen when the phone is locked.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...51bGwsMSwyLDNd

----------------------------------------------
2.01
- added flashlight
- added review calls (need directory configured in /sdcard0/vcustomize/callrecordings.txt)
-----------------------------------------------
update history
2.00 - fixed force close problem. App runs without crashing.
- added options on touchscreen to
- make calls (need directory configured in /sdcard0/vcustomize/contacts.txt. format is "name|number")
- record voice memos
- interval shooting (with autofocus, sometimes waits for a while between pictures)
- backup files (need backup script configured in /sdcard0/vcustomize/backup.txt. format is "source|destination|delete-source-after-copying-flag")

Yes, Ruzzle is more popular , but this one is slightly different as in, its sort of massively multiplayer.
Some of the words which are accepted are quite in both the cases though.
