Easily Disable Annoying WiFi Popup on Verizon Galaxy S III

It’s great when our smartphones automatically suggest us things to make our life easier. However, this convenience can turn into an annoyance when they fail to provide us with a way to disable the feature. Many variants of the Galaxy S III have a feature that shows a pop-up message whenever in range of a known WiFi network, prompting you to connect to it. While this can be disabled from the settings of the other variants, Verizon decided against it for some inexplicable reason. Fortunately though, there is another, less obvious way of easily disabling it on your Verizon Galaxy S III.

Shared with us by by XDA Senior Member ImgBurn, this method involves entering a code to bring up a hidden menu that allows you to disable this popup. You can catch the details at the forum thread.

If you are running a third-party launcher such as Apex that allows custom shortcuts, XDA Senior Member mikec86 has shared with us the method to create a shortcut to easily enable or disable this feature at will, right from your home screen. It can be found in the 4th post of the thread.

Lastly, if you want to disable the persistent ‘Tap to turn WiFi on’ notification when you have WiFi switched off, XDA Senior Member cshort0982 has written a guide for that as well, and its link can be found in the 8th post.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
