    found the open source licenses on my phone and was curious so I looked at the names. What surprised me was a couple of the names. Several contain the phrase "fake_packages." The entire name of the first one is /fake_packages/mobicorebin-timestamps.
    There are four of them with this prefix. Are they viruses or some other malware? I will have had my Samsung Note 4 for 30 days tomorrow. It doesn't seem to pick up as many "bars" of reception as my Note 3 did, which is why I was looking through everything.
    Thanks.

    Even comparing two Note 4s that came in the same shipment is comparing apples and oranges - the number of bars isn't calibrated to a certain signal level. Run an app like LTE Discovery or SignalCheck Lite to see what the actual signal level is. (Signal level is measured as below a certain level, so the lower the absolute number, the more signal you're getting - -80 is better than -90). Anything down to about -115 is usable, below that it gets iffy. (Since the scale is logarithmic, -118 is half the signal of -115.)
