The Weekly Q&A: Week 27

The Weekly Q&A: Week 27

Every week, we select five questions and answers, found on the forums. Even though some of these questions and answers might not be of help for you, they might still be interesting to read.

Q ‘Why is the first test score in Quadrant always lower than the following ones ? ‘

A There’s no expert explanation to this fact, but we guess that it has got something to do with the OS keeping the processes and data in memory. It could also be the CPU that’s been revved up after the first test.

Q ‘How can I install apps on my Inspire 4G from the market that are blocked by AT&T?’

A The best way to avoid this is by installing Sideload Wonder Machine. It’s software for you PC, which allows you to sideload applications to your phone without directly accessing the Android Market.

  • Q&A originally posted in the Inspire 4G General thread.

Q ‘I’ve looked everywhere in the settings and can’t find a way to zoom in while taking a picture or movie. Anyone know how?’

A Use the volume keys ;)

  • Q&A originally posted in the Atrix 4G General Forum thread.

Q ‘How can I remove MOTOBLUR from my Motorla Milestone 2?’

A There’s no way to get rid the complete Motoblur service from your phone, you can however hide it using any other homescreen replacement such as Launcher Pro or ADW Launcher. Note that this only hides the homescreen replacement, not the other services like remote device finder etc.

  • Q&A originally posted in the Samsung Galaxy S Q&A Forum thread.

Q ‘Today I noticed the screen of my Nook Color was oversensitive, it was incredibly frustrating and almost unusable. How can I solve this problem?’

A It must be some condensation or skin oils on your screen that caused this problem. If cleaning the whole thing doesn’t work, it might be an idea to calibrate the screen or flash another kernel.

  • Q&A originally posted in the Nook Color General thread.
