    On iOS I just install adblock on my jailbroken devices. Then I select the apps I want ads blocked in and that's it.

    On my s6 I'm trying to use adblock plus but it either just randomly stops sometimes and/or it seems to be a pain to use because any new connection you're using you have to add proxy settings every time?

    Then don't, but how much do you spend on coffee's, drinks out, and other non-essential items on a daily basis. If you don't want ads on your phone and you don't want to pay for the apps that use ads in lieu of paying for the app to be ad free then I fail to understand your issue with $10 a year which is $0.8333 a month.

    You can root your phone if you want and install an app called Adaway. It gets rid of ALL ads in apps and in any browser. Even stops pop up ads that may come from questionable apps. It just plain works.

    Rooting will most likely trip the knox detector and so it will void the warranty.

    not sure how you're failing to understand that i don't want to pay a recurring subscription for a service thats clearly free or at least a single pay option via other methods. even adguard's single pay of $30 is ridiculous. please don't try to explain how to spend my own money.

    i'll look more into rooting (read that it will also knock out samsung pay but i dont care about that at all) and trying adaway. thanks nexusgirlX!

    The tradeoff of not having annoying ads in anything you do is well worth losing Samsung Pay. You shouldn't have to pay for a service like this and I sure wouldn't.

    It's not. The 30 bucks includes the desktop as block and mobile. If you choose mobile only then its 10$.

    I still wouldn't pay for something that you can do free by rooting.

    This is the best way to go. It blocks ads in anything you do on the phone from apps to browsers. You name it, it will block the ad.

    It's not in the Play Store. They no longer allow apps that block ads.

    You have to root your phone, install F Droid which is an alternative app repository and then install Adaway from there.

    Well I have a AT&T Galaxy SIII rooted and using CM 12.1 from download.cyanogenmod.org and a T-Mobile Galaxy S4 rooted and using AICP.

    The SIII adaway works, after installing and reboot, adaway stays enabled.

    But on the S4 after turning adblock off in AICP, then installing Adaway, if I reboot, it says disabled. If I don't reboot, it says enabled and works, but first reboot it goes back to disabled. I have to click it and it downloads and I get the reboot, as long as I say No, then it works. Pain to have to go through this on each reboot.

    I like AICP, it's built in adblocker does work, but doesn't seen to do it as fast, but eventually will get the ads.

    Awesome - I've been rooted since the beginning with my S5 and I've never heard of this. Downloaded and verified it works!
