Weekly Q&A: Week 44

Welcome to week 44 of our weekly Questions and Answers article. We select five questions that might not be of help to you, but it might still be interesting to read or to pass on to someone who might be looking for that answer.

Q: Does Screen Filter app really work to lower battery usage? Or is it just a placebo effect? Can I set my screen to 100% and use the filter to save batt?

A: Depends on the screen, but you can still benefit from Screen Filter because it will make your screen not as bright to your eyes, which is good if you need to use it at night and don’t want to be blinded/wake up your spouse/whatever.

  • Found in the Questions and Answers section.

Q: Put a new SD card in the samsung focus. It isnt reading it. I am sure i have to format it some how but i dont know the sequence of buttons and procedure to get it to reformat. Hold camera + power or something like that. Any help would be great.

Q: How to check battery capacity?
As question I think I got 1580mAh not 1520 mAh… How to make sure which battery is in our sensation?

A: you can see your information on the batterie itself, power off your device, remove the back cover and remove your batterie on the other side, just before the serial number you have : Model BG58100 Rating 3.7VDC 1520mAh 5.62Whr

  • Found in the Sensation Q&A section.

Q: Do I have to re-downgrade to a stock ROM lower than 1.7 to flash a custom ROM or is that done to get Radio and ENG S-off?

A: If you already have root and s-off i would assume that there is no reason to downgrade again. As far as i am aware radio is not backed up by a NAND backup so be best to take note of what radio you have.
