How can I test the NFC capability of my Android?


Saturday 19th of January 2013 / android.stackexchange.com
I got a Nexus 7 last week, and I love it! It has NFC functionality, and I was wondering how I could test it?I don't actually have any NFC tags that I can use (have you seen the price of them?!?).So, how can I test NFC without NFC tags?

Amazon Appstore Updated to 2.6.53 – Brings New “Test Drive” Feature To Select Devices


Monday 21st of May 2012 / phandroid.com
The Amazon Appstore was updated today to version 2.6.53 today adding a rather amazing new feature that allows for users to “test drive” apps before shelling out their hard earned money. No downloading. No installing. No purchasing. Just click, and immediately begin playing. This feature was originally introduced almost a year ago on Amazon’s desktop site, and gave users the ability to try out potential Appstore purchases directly from their web browsers. Today, over 5,000 apps in the Appstore have been given this new functionality, and if you’ve updated and don’t see it appearing in your Appstore just yet, be patient, as only a handful of devices support the Test Drive feature as of right now.Of course, the usual stability improvements and the previous download bug that was preventing some users from downloading large apps on a 3G/4G connection have all been patched up. With this new ability to try out apps before you buy and bookmarking apps for later, I have to say, I like where Amazon is going with their Play Store alternative. Your move, Google.Thank

CM7 Test Build Available for LG Optimus 3D and Thrill 4G


Monday 19th of September 2011 / everythingandroid.org
CyanogenMod is hands-down the most popular custom Android ROM, bringing a host of features that users love. CyanogenMod 7, or just CM7 if you’re hip, is the latest version of the mod and is now available for the LG Optimus 3D and Thrill 4G.CM7 is more than worth looking into if you’re rooted and interested in trying out a custom ROM. If this is your first time flashing a ROM to an Android device, we’d probably advise waiting until the builds are not quite so early and don’t lack so much functionality.Test builds are really geared towards users who are comfortable providing user feedback to the development team. If you are interested, however, you can grab more information at the link below.[Rootz Wiki]Related posts:Samsung Captivate Android 2.3 ‘Official’ Build LeaksAmazon Free App of the Day: Moron TestCyanogenMod App Store In The WorksCyanogenMod Founder Steve Kondik Joins Samsung

usb debugging - test usb functionality from the handset?


Thursday 01st of March 2012 / android.stackexchange.com
I am using HTC Desire HD, I have a terminal with root permissions.Are there any tests I can do on the USB port from the handset side?i.e. to make sure it exists and is functional.The reason I am asking this is that my computer (Windows 7 64 bit) does not recognize my phone when connected,however it did recognize another phone of the same brand (but with a different rom).

Five things that indicate whether you have a keeper, a lemon, or just new technology


Thursday 23rd of December 2010 / androidtablets.net
OK, You have the dream or desired Tablet for Christmas. Sure, it was for your wife, kids, husband... But, we know the truth. You have your eyes on it for yourself. But how do you know what is the quality of your unit. You see posts about electronic or Battery problems and you begin to wonder. Well here are five basic rules to use to evaluate your tablet for strength, reliability, and reliability. This is especially important as the QA for some of the units seem to be uneven. 1. The tablet (or any electronic device) that breaks within 10 operating hours or first week is likely defective and should be returned. This is why you should immediately do rule #2 2. Complete a Burn-in/functionality test as soon as possible. Charge fully, Power up, and leave running for 4-6 hours minimum. 10-12 hours is better. During this time complete Rule #3. 3. Test every app, and hardware capability. If it says Bluetooth. Test Bluetooth. If it is capacitive or resistive. Test sensitivity and look for dropouts on screen. If there is B/G/N WLAN NIC; test B, G and N. Test the apps in the same way. Just becau
