New Automatic Connections after tapping Mobile Data

...More, NFC, ON, Tap & Pay

Location has a new, Mode Button

Tapping Storage, make more space, has no finish button.

The pull down menu at the top. Pull it down and hit the right top button. There are icons to control things, and now you can choose the order of them as well as add and subtract the icons.

Got it. You meant the notification bar, where you use 2 fingers to pull down. Nice!

Another improvement from 4.3-when you turn gps on/off, you don't get that annoying 911 pop up anymore.

ZoeRafo,



Thanks for the post. Great post. You can also check to see if there are any updates available for your router. But I agree doing a power cycle on your router and or modem will ususally fix any wifi data issues.

Try this: Go to Backup & reset turn off Automatic backup, turn on again, it should give you 3 options, 2 Google Drive & Dropbox, pick Dropbox, allow to create folder, and then do a Back up now. Let me know if this works for you. It did for me when I just tried it.

Thank you,
