Yes and no as dependent on the upgradation of their network and proximity to the tower.

This usually happens because Android doesn't delete update files. I had the same issue on my Galaxy A33. I solved it by factory reset.

Better to wipe the cache partition than do a factory reset. It's my opinion as I find it more tedious to restore after a factory reset.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

hi friends, I'm using a Samsung S22 Ultra. Since today morning, the video sound from twitter, hotstar, Whats App voice clips etc is getting played from the ear speaker. This happens randomly and not every single time. Someone says it's to do with proximity sensor.

Any known work arounds? I'm planning to reboot the phone but would want to root cause it before doing that.

IMO first clean your temporary files
Settings - Battery and Device Care - Memory "Clean now (+*.* GB)".

Then restart the phone and see if your problem is solved.
Hope this solves your query.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

An interesting article on moon photos taken using Samsung flagships – is it real, or a software generated piece?

And a good explanation video from Marques Brownlee (MKBHD)

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

Got my S21 FE 5g a couple of days back. It came with Android 13 out of the box. And it has been running buttery smooth. I haven't faced any heating issues till now and the battery as well seems satisfactory to me.
When searching on YouTube about this phone, I find the hate towards it very unnecessary. Yes the Exynos has been pretty bad in the previous but they have optimistised it very well in this phone. great job samsung.

Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

Seems like there is some good news in store for those looking for a compact phone, or compact android phone rather.

The next Pixel, i.e. the Pixel 8 is expected to be sporting compact dimensions with a screen size of 5.8”. Ofcourse, these are just the early rumours, but look quite convincing nevertheless.

I'd like that. But a comment mentions EUR600, and I am never going to spend that on a phone. (I hope!)

I'm still toying with the idea of the Pixel 6a, but I find visiting Flipkart to be an off-putting experience. The Rs69 "Secured package fee" irks, but, when spending nearly 30k, is hardly a deal breaker. But they go further with this lark. One has to select at least one out of two insurance add-on options before adding to cart. The least is 183, but hey, first it's 69, then it's Rs252 that I have to add to the advertised price. I don't like people that do business that way.

Insurance is optional. I didn't pay the same when I bought the phone 10 days ago.
