usb tethering – Android Tether Detection Bypass Not Working on Samsung Galaxy S8

I’ve been setting DUN to 0 with settings put global tether_dun_required 0 on my Galaxy S8 for a few months now and it’s worked great. In the last few days it has stopped working and I’m unsure of what the problem is. The TTL on the device is set to 65, so that shouldn’t be an issue. I checked if DUN is set to 0 with settings get global tether_dun_required and it returns 0, so that doesn’t help. I just turned Tethering Hardware Acceleration off, but that didn’t help. I used Termux and Tinyproxy to run an HTTP proxy from my Galaxy S8 and I was able to use that to deal with the tether throttling, but that doesn’t fix the issue. Any ideas?

color – Screen / display colours on new Galaxy Tab S5e

Having just got a Tab S5e, I can see why people are full of praise for its AMOLED screen, which is bright, sharp and colourful. However, I have two concerns.

Firstly, the screen hue & white balance. Having recently tried a Tab A 10.1 (2019), I noticed a major difference between that and the S5e. The Tab A has a faintly pink-hued white, and the angle the tablet is viewed from makes no difference to that. The S5e has colder whites overall which I’m not overly keen on, although I find it a bit better if I adjust the white balance right over to the warm side (good that this model has that option). But the thing I find most surprising is that the colour changes significantly on the S5e dependong on the angle the tablet is viewed from. If I look at it absolutely straight on, the white balance is reasonably natural, but when viewed from even just a slight angle (and especially if flat on a desk, for example), the whole display takes on a markedly green-blue hue. It’s very noticeable on white and paler-coloured areas. There is no such phenomenon on the Tab A. Is this normal? Having tweaked every display-related setting I can find, and given the nature of the issue, I’m guessing this is very much down to the hardware, but wondering if it’s a normal phenomenon with AMOLED displays such as this one (first time I’ve had one) or whether there is a fault with this particular device.

My secondary concern is just whether Pulse Width Modulation is likely to be a problem. I first noticed it when taking a picture of the Tab A and S5e side-by-side – I could see distinct grey bands scrolling across the screen on the S5e and not on the Tab A, and I understand this is probably down to the use of PWM in the AMOLED display. This is something I wasn’t aware of before purchasing and I read that some people find it a real problem (causing eye strain and headaches), but I’ve not had the tablet long enough to know if it’s a problem for me or not. Have many people on here noticed any problems with this?

Any help much appreciated.

Gmail Notifications on my Galaxy Note10

I’ve used Galaxy Note 10 for about 6 months and one of the major issues that I have experienced was related to my gmail notification. I’d go several hours without receiving any emails and just think to check the app and as soon as I open the app then I’d have like 20 emails just sitting there that I had never received a push notification. Do you know any easy fix for this?

samsung galaxy s 10 – Cannot export image from app

I have an app from seb.se with Samsung S10. It does not work to “export image”. I tried tell them but they lied to me and said that it works. I try again to understand what must be done, if the bug is with me or with them.

android sdk – Is the CPU of Samsung Galaxy A10s 64 bit or 32 bit?

I really wanted to know the CPU word length of Samsung Galaxy A10s, running Android Pie. In the first appearance it looks like it has a 64 bit processor, since, it uses the MediaTek Helios P22 chipset, but I dont think apps/programs running in user space have access to 64 bit instructions etc. . Even __aarch64__ is undefined. The OS identifies it as ARM 7 and hence it cannot use AES instruction sets and other features. If it were the ARM Cortex A53 mentioned by MediaTek Helios P22 it should have an ARM architecture of 8.

  • Is this because the Kernel is 32 bit ?
  • Or is the Android permissions blocking it ?
  • How can I identify my Kernel is a 32 bit or 64 bit ?

Please do correct me, if I am wrong !?

Every help will be greatly appreciated!

Samsung galaxy tab – why are YouTube downloads deleted from my tablet but not from my phone?

I have an Oppo AX5 phone and a Samsung Galaxy Tab A tablet. If I download the same YouTube video to both devices, it will be deleted from the tablet within 48 hours, but not from the phone. It has to be a setting or an app on the tablet, but I've exhausted every conceivable lead without finding the culprit. Probably something obvious … doh! Notes are gratefully accepted. Bandwidth is slow and expensive in my part of the world, so I have to be able to download a resource once so it doesn't go away!

Thanks in advance for suggestions.
