I'm a new Android user coming from years of BlackBerry use. I have the Droid X and was wondering, when using Google Talk, is there a way to enlarge the photo that my friends/Talk contacts use? Also, is there a way to have their selected photos replace the existing photo I have for them in my Contacts?

A Tasker task that when I'm on the lockscreen, I can tap or double tap to turn the screen off. I've looked in the Tasker tasks and I'm unable to find anything for this. I already use the Nova gesture+ScreenOff app to turn the screen off when I'm unlocked and at the homescreen, which works perfectly. The only thing Nova can't do it turn the screen off from the lockscreen.
I need to get data off my phone and I am trying to figure out ways to do it short of replacing the screen on it.
It is stock and has a PIN lock screen. When I try hooking it up through Kies it says I need to unlock my phone and apparently whatever steps I need to do I cannot.
I was wondering if I buy an MHL hdmi adapter if it would start mirroring as soon as I plugged it in or if I would need to enable mirroring somewhere in a menu stuck behind the lock screen which I cannot get to?
if the MHL adapter starts working immediately when plugged in (mirrors lock screen) or how to get my data off?
I am designing a home screen widget. I ran this widget on a HTC Hero device, which has a screen of 320 pixels * 480 pixels with mdpi. It ran perfect on HTC Hero. The widget takes 3 cells * 2 cells space, i.e. 240 pixels * 200 pixels.Then I ran this widget on a Nexus One device, which has a screen of 480 pixels * 800 pixels, mdpi. Since Nexus One also is mdpi, so I though 240dip is equivalent to 240 pixels on Nexus One and 200dip is equivalent to 200 pixels on Nexus One, so the widget will not take 3 cells * 2 cells space on Nexus One device. To my surprise, when running on Nexus One device, the widget take exact 3 cells * 2 cells, about 360 pixels * 300 pixels, on Nexus One device.I am confused. The layout xml above specifies 240dip in width and 200dip in height for the widget, but why did it take 360 pixels * 300 pixels on Nexus One Device? What am I missing?
so my HTC One X's touch screen is totally unresponsive. Everything else is working fine and I'm still getting messages and notifications (and my alarms are going off), but I can't get to any of it. I've backed it up and tried to do a hard reset, but holding down the volume down + power button is just taking a screenshot and then restarting. I can't do it through settings as the touch screen is not working.
My Virgin Mobile HTC EVO 3D on ICS is having touch screen issues...but only in games. In games such as Minecraft: PE, Modern Combat 4, Modern Combat 3, COD:BOZ, N64oid, and similar games which use an on-screen joystick, it isn't working. I can place my finger on the joystick (or where it's supposed to be) and try and touch and drag, but it either doesn't respond or responds for half a second then acts as if my thumb isn't even there. It's really driving me insane. I'm not able to play any of these expensive apps anymore. My old EVO 3D recently killed itself due to an unknown issue, so VM sent me the phone I have now literally the day after Christmas. I had this same issue with my last EVO 3D. It's gotten to the point where I'm considering purchasing a PowerA MOGA controller, just so I can play these apps.
I am using the camera app that came along the phone its good. But If i am using other photo apps like picsart or*instagram the *screen looks dark and cant see anything through the camera. It looks dark.And also other apps like*qr code and Google goggles they also *looks dark through camera. Its running jellybean 4.1.2 out of box.
how to organise apps icons in app screen. I can organise the home screens easily but when I try to hold down an icon in app screen to move it within app screen, it simply takes the icon to homepage as a shortcut.
I am a butter-smooth UI addict, and i have a problem on my I9001. Every rom i flash, even stock, my phone lags after unlocking the screen.So. I unlock the phone via lockscreen, and my fps drops below 20. I swipe left-right for about 3 times and the phone works perfect.
There some apps that when you turn off the screen it just stops, freezes... How to turn off the screen but make the device think that it's on? I wanna leave it for all night, but I don't wanna leave the screen on...
I use EasySMS app to sens text messages from my phone by typing them on my laptop. Laptop connects to EazySMS through Wifi. It works when the screen is ON, but when it goes off, the http interface no longer works (page not found errors). I then need to turn on the screen again to regain connectivity.
EasySMS has an option 'Keep wifi connected (drains battery)' and I already have it ON.
At the same time, AirDroid works fine over wifi even with screen off.
i am using screen off app to turn off and on my screen as a im afraid that my power button will break after some time and i dont want that....so proximity sensor will break if its continously on ? how can i turn on screen using any other way without rooting?
i'm on android 4.3 and im looking for an app that will shut off the screen when connected to hdmi via my MHL adapter. Im rooted. i used to use screen standby but it no longer works on 4.3 and it seems the developer has abandoned it. Are there any alternatives currently out there at the moment? I love playing my playstation emulator on the tv but can only play for about an hour until the battery is dead
Is there an app that sets different orientation settings for each app. Like if i want my browser to switch to portrait it switches. But if I open xda it stays in landscape even if my settings is set to auto rotation. SGH-T989
I have a sprint Samsung Galaxy S3, rooted...Int he past week or 2, whenever I am in an application (Chrome, Yahoo, GTalk, etc) The screen will sometimes randomly shut off. It just goes black, i can still touch and use whatever app I was in (I can hear the sounds of clicks, etc) and the buttons stay lit on the bottom. When I press the lock button it makes the lock noise. When I then unlock it, i get to the lock screen with no problems. If I unlock into whatever app I am running, the screen will almost immediately shut off again, or sometimes after a few seconds, or sometimes it waits until i touch the screen. BUT, if I unlock into a system app (messages, phone, homescreen, etc) the problem doesnt happen. I have tried adjusting all the display settings for screen timeout, rebooting, battery out, killing services, etc and nothing seems to work.
I dropped my galaxy s3 in the sink, its completely dry now but my screen won't respond. I tried to reset by pressing the power, volume-up and home keys at the same time then releasing all three buttons as soon as the Samsung logo appeared, but the option to reset never appeared. The phone just vibrates every few seconds and the screen stays black.
My HTC One X Plus fell down recently, and has got a ' triangle flag' like mark on the top left part of the screen. (But not on the Gorilla Screen). But each day, when I see it, the black mark getting disappeared , as forming lines in the triangle flag (the original screen getting viewed through the lines).
When I try the phone screenshot option, the complete screen is captured with no black mark on it.
When I contacted the service center, they asked me to replace the screen. That is very costly
Is it really needed to replace the screen or will it get disappeared eventually?
