Yes the Moto E is in different segment than Moto G.

There is already an initial hands on available for Moto E on various websites -

Also the new Moto G will be with the same specs of the older one with added LTE and micro SD card (upto 32GB) support.

Default Help, Sprint htc One with KitKat

My mobile has suddenly started misbehaving. It keeps coming on and also the WiFi is not being switched off. The result is battery is not rising bout 32%. You switch WiFi off and it is back within 30 seconds, ditto full diply to standby.

What do I do? htc One has a sealed battery, so no option of a battery pull'. Restart, off-on does not help. It was Ok, then I installed and removed Truecaller. All hell has broken loose.

I noticed on my phone a few days ago, that mobile data would get enabled on its own after some time.
Some app is probably misbehaving.

I am not sure if it is easy to track this.

For now, I am using another cellphone. Will try and do a clean re-install when I find some time.

Have you looked at log file? That should show which app/process is asking for WiFi to be on.

You can look at log file with

1. logcat command on phone
2. logcat like apps available on Play Store
3. adb logcat command while phone is connected to PC

Unprecedented response for the Moto E. All phones sold out within 24h of the launch! Any idea on the sales numbers?

Default Clarification of MMX Phones.

I don't have any opposition for Motorola but my two cents for MMX.

Our employee had bought MMX X560 from Infibeam in Sept. 2010. He used it till last Dec or something (2013) without any problems. Then his younger daughter threw the phone and the display cracked. He repaired it locally (outside A.S.C) for Rs.700/- but again the screen cracked due to drop.

I have recently bought MMX A117 Canvas Magnus. The box itself mentions the SAR Values - 0.44W/kg @1g (Head), 0.67 W/kg @1g (Body).

A simple solution, create a back up of all the stuff in the phone, do a hard reset and the things should be back to normal. Same thing happened to my android too, I installed some app its my 3.5mm Jack went kaput. A hard reset brought back everything to normal.

Hi guys I am using Galaxy S3 rooted and running Beanstalk Kitkat ROM. Since yesterday evening whenever I am making a phone call their is a Buzzing sound coming from earpiece and when I am switching on the speaker that same buzzing sound is coming from it. But the problem is not occurring if I am receiving a call. After 2-3 attempts the sound disappears. So what could be the issue? Never faced this issue. I rooted my phone 3 months back. Hope its not a hardware issue.

This is exactly what I did. An Android /Linux Guru advised the same.

I had the backup of the phone book and the sms'es.
Then found Ritesh Sahu's backup of the call list,
and a very nifty app App Backup & Restore. Used the latter to backup all the Apps.
Then copied into the laptop (no separate uSD in the htc One). Did a hard reset and then basically first got the App Backup & Restore (after Google finished with its updates) from PlayStore and installed it.. Got the Apps back (selectively). The call register, sms and contacts was next restored. The most interesting bit was Sygic worked without having to reinstall the maps!

Only point, the Sprint htc One comes back with WiFi in the CDMA/LTE mode so had to be again set to the GSM/UMTS mode.

Now everything appears to be kosher.

Remember it is a 'cracked' Sprint CDMA+GSM phone from Hetal Patel.

Recycle HTC One's battery by - Switch off - then hold down power button and volume UP button simultaneously and don't let go for 2 minutes -the HTC screen will come and go - let this recycle go on for at least 10 times (2 minutes approx). This recycles the HTC One's battery and does the battery pull effect.

Default Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

i have a Moto G android phone. My google account has 283 accounts which I imported from my earlier nokia phone and then loaded/ synced in the Moto G. After that , i have added directky many contacts in my Moto G manually and the contact list is now at 650+.
So, i want to take a back up of these contacts for any eventuality later, if any.

Doubts:
- If i start google account sync, will it sync up the phone contacts to gooogle account and increase it from 283 to 650? Or the vice versa will happen and I will loose the manally added contacts ?
- what are other ways to create a contact back up in Google / android phones?
- Any way to create back up directly in laptop thru USB cable?

Pls help to understand, I am a novice in this area.

Start Google sync to have all your accounts to be saved and synced with Google. You may take backup on sd card as well. Check for import and export options in contacts and then select export to sd card. Hope this helps.

ok. time to replace my Samsung GS3 (I9305).
Top contenders are - Xperia Z2 & HTC one (M8).

anybody bought either of these? can I get some reviews?
most important for me is battery longevity and call quality.

the rest is all kit kat magic anyway..i'm glad to be stepping away from samsung's bloatware.

Sd card is memory either local or external. Check for the options. It should be there.
