Five tips for solving your most annoying Android issues

With each new version released Android gets several improvements, thus becoming evident over time. However, Google's operating system still suffers from some annoying bugs, even less frequently. With that in mind, we decided to select some bugs that occur and how to fix each one.

Infinite Loop

This is one of the worst bugs that can happen on Android. I mention this because often the only solution is to (re) install the device's factory ROM. But before you do that, you can try clearing the cache through the recovery menu. There are also cases where the hardware problem, but the same technical assistance.

  • Turn off your smartphone;
  • Hold the buttons: volume (+) or volume (-) and turn on;
  • Wait until the Recovery Mode menu appears;
  • With the volume buttons navigate to the "Wipe cache partition" option and press the power button to select it;
  • Another screen will appear, and now just confirm in the "Yes" option and restart the smartphone.

Smartphone locked

This is often the case that the device crashes completely to the point where not even a command on the touch or buttons works. When this bug happens, many people find that the best way to solve it by waiting for the battery to run out, however, is a very simple option that everyone can do. This method works in 99% of cases:

  • Hold the power button until the screen goes out;
  • After the screen has cleared, release the button and wait a few seconds;
  • If the screen does not turn on again by starting Android, you can turn it on normally on the power button.

Touch failing

This is a bug that often occurs due to several factors together. This could be a screen problem, interfering films or simply a calibration problem. So, before taking in a service or tearing off the protective film you use, download the Touchscreen Repair application. It will calibrate your smartphone screen:

  • The simple process, just follow the instructions the app requests;
  • Then restart your device and see if the issue has been resolved.

Screen Overlay

This to me is the most annoying bug on Android. I was very nervous about the annoying overlay of the screen about to break my smartphone. This problem has occurred a lot on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and if you are still experiencing this problem download the Install Button Unlocker app and suffer no more.
