HTC Vision (G2) Hinge Teardown/Repair
So for those of you who are a bit squeamish, look away now….because XDA forum member verkion has written up his experience on fixing his loose G2 hinge.
If you don’t want to use magnets in case the compass is affected, take a look at the XDA member’s teardown. verkion couldn’t find an online teardown showing the actual spring mechanism for the z-hinge and has helpfully provided a photo of the actual mechanism (pictured).

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
