Random Restarts on Samsung

The random Restarts on Samsung has happened on my s6 and s7. I was doing the same thing. Using the Samsung browser. There must be a memory issue.

s7 Review


Due to my s6, which I have had for a year, since which the software went down whilst browsing with Samsung Browser. It went down, I tried to go to Recovery, could not, tried to flash the stock rom and nothing. The conclusion being is that it was to go to repair. Went to O2, but O2 said that the repair was not going to happen alleging the phone had been tampered with. So I had to upgrade to the Galaxy S7. 

The phone is a beast of a phone. Performance is beyond belief. The system is buoyed with 4GB of RAM. This amount of memory was a dream a few years ago. Running Android 6.0.1 out of the box. Already the first software update has been issued. 

In terms of the camera, focus and detail is the most incredible. Whilst the s6 had 16mpixels the shooter is now down to 12. This means that the new software tweaks has brought this up to the s6 standard if not better. 

Email and social media is so quick, applications launching in 1 second. The Exynos chipset here in the UK is the most rapid of any phone configuration. 

I have had the phone 2 days now, and I cannot believe the difference between this and the s6. 

The notification shade is so good, receiving colourful and detailed notifications. Email delivers quickly, and photos upload to Facebook and Instagram so fast, and to cloud services. 

I estimate that with further software updates the platform becomes more and more optimized. 

There is no doubt, the s7 is the best smartphone around.

S6 to S7

Last week the software on my s6 died in mid browsing. I tried to boot it up but to no avail. Tried to flash through download mode. No joy there either. The rom would not boot. Took it to a mobile provider to be fixed.  They refused to fix it. Instead I refreshed the account with a s7. Wonderful machine of a phone.

Was browsing the net when the S6 went down and did not reboot no matter how much flashing was done. Awaiting repair.

Windows 10 Event Tracing Stop error

I had a stop error, the computer could not boot, not even with a repair. So the only resource available was reset and reinstall the system...best thing I did, with new functionality added to Windows, it is the best ever. Sometimes an error, however grave, we can get a benefit from.

Apk mirror Google Play Services update 9 PLEASE DO NOT INSTALL

The update to Google Play Services on Apkmirror.com is giving an update error loop. Please do not update

Windows 10 event tracing fatal error.

I had a stop error and trawled the Internet for a solution. There were several solutions but could only guide me to the final conclusion. I had for whatever reason installed a broadcom driver. Broadcom drivers do not go well with Windows 10. Uninstalled it. Now boots up fine.

BE AWARE BROADCOM DRIVERS ARE NOT COMPATIBLE WITH WINDOWS 10.

Windows 10 switch

I have recently made the switch to Windows 10 whether it be mobile or PC. The architecture has matured and the interlinking is good. I love the email structure of both Mobile and PC versions. Mobile apps need optimisation to speed up their launch and data access. I have had 5 updates since I got the mobile. I love Android but Windows 10 has matured.
