    TRICK:

    In the app drawer you can pinch the screen and it gives you the sense like view of the app drawer pages. This is very hand for a guy who doesn't do the folders but wants to navigate fast.

    Love finding all these little things. I've had a lot of android phones and tried a lot of custom android roms on those phones. And I must say this thing is chalked full of little tricks that make if feel like a home brewed rom.

    I can kinda use pinch to minimize the web browser and go to window mode , haven't perfected it yet. Not really sure what triggers it specifically, anyone?

    The iPhone 5 does not even come close to the Epic 4G Touch.

    Heya guys, I jz got the Epic 4G Touch few days ago and I got few questions about it. How do you guys get the phone to last more than a day?. I can't get mine to go past 9 hours, I don't really use it heavily and no widgets running. I checked the battery usage for the Android OS it state 42%, how do you keep it below 30%?. I really really appreciate any help or tips you guys can give me. Thanks in advance!

    While I have and love the Epic 4G Touch, how can you make this blanket statement when you have no idea what the iPhone 5 is going to feature? Suppose they release a quad-core, 4.5" retina display, 6mm thick, 3 oz monster? No one will know which is better for sure until Oct 4th.

    Hi all,

    I am trying to find out what the little hole just above the volume rocker, my silicone case even has a cut out for this hole:?

    Its not listed in the big manual that I download from Android Central.

    Thanks!

    Sorry for making another message!

    What does it mean to 'Share' or 'Share an Application'?

    The manual doesn't really explain what 'Sharing' means. To share an application sounds strange to me?

    Thanks!

    Rob

    PS I'm an Android newbie, coming from WebOS. I have been loving the Samsung Galaxy II Epic 4G Touch! I'm now down to learning the little buried stuff! I'm reading this whole thread tonight!

    I can't find a reference for it. iFixIt did a tear down and maythey found out?

    It is an Ethernet device so maybe that hole is so extra Ether can escape?

    It's a hole for a lanyard strap, so you can attach wrist, neck, or accessory straps. If you pull off your battery cover you can see a tiny little bar that you'd loop around.

    Rob,

    Check out the Getting Started section on Cut, Copy, Paste, and Share for this:
    Share Options
    You can share a link to a YouTube Video, website, or an app in the Android Market, etc. via:
    Email
    Facebook
    Twitter
    Text message

    Sharing Apps
    MyAppSharer - You can share a link to an app in the Android Market. MyAppSharer let's you email the actual app apk.
    Bump - Bump another Android or iPhone to share photos, contacts, or a link to an app in the Android Market.
    You are asking really great questions. If you are at this point, come over to the dark side and try out the 500 features and tricks in the Getting Started. Many are not documented anywhere. Few are in the manuals.

    But there are a tremendous number of features unique to the Samsung/Galaxy S II/TouchWiz 4. I have done a few of them up as posts:
    25 Reasons to Consider the Epic 4G Touch
    How to Connect a Bluetooth Mouse/Keyboard
    30+ Hours Battery Life on the Epic 4G Touch
    The Samsung Expanded Clipboard
    Customize the Epic 4G Touch Lock Screen
    Epic 4G Touch App Folders
    Increase Epic 4G Touch Data Speeds
    Change the Epic 4G Touch to "Pure" Android Without Rooting

    I am Milo from PreCentral. I also did the getting started guides for the Pre.

    Right now I am just having a ball with the Epic 4G Touch!

    I'm on my fourth charge so far and I started my day at 8 am at full charge. I used Bluetooth for 15 minutes on the way to work. I don't have wifi at work so I ran 3G all day from 9-5 with Facebook being checked, texting quite frequently, email and weather syncing, and using twitter occassionally. I used Bluetooth on the way home and spent an hour and a half on the phone after that. From 6:30 on, I've run 4G the whole time (I live in Baltimore and get excellent 4G connections and speeds) with an hour of YouTube watching ontop of browsing/Facebook/texting with a live wallpaper running the whole time I had 4G on. I'm trying to kill this battery basically and I'm not succeeding. I'm typing on this right now and my stats on the display being on is 2 hours and 40 minutes. I'm still at 35% and Ive had the phone running for almost 14 hours.

    Needless to say, this phone is the best phone period. The battery is amazing.
    If this is true, I want to know what magic pixie dust you sprinkled on the phone, or what power monster I have on mine that keeps eating my battery away, because right now I'm at a loss...

    I purchased the phone on Saturday, installed a few apps and whatnot, and didn't add any widgets other than the ones that came active on the phone when it was first turned on. I let the battery run to 0% on Sunday so I could fully charge it to 100% overnight for Monday morning.

    I unplugged it at 7:30am, and by 2pm, it was at 29%. During that time, I had 4G or WiFi on sporadically (Manhattan area), had a fair few text messages, emails (both corporate and gmail accounts) and gtalk conversations, but nothing was constant, and I was certainly around the same level I used my EVO 4G just a week earlier, and that phone would be at about 55-65% at the same point in the day. The phone is now off and charging up as I write this.

    What is up with this phone, or it's user? Any ideas?

    the screen is bigger and there's more power under the hood of the Samsung galaxy two vs that evo4g

    Here is where the pixie dust is kept:

    30+ Hours Battery Life

    You have some setting, app or widget that is robbing you blind. Follow those steps and you can get amazing battery life. But if you are using apps like streaming music, watching movies, RPG, GPS navigation, etc., there is no phone that can give you many hours. Consider a charger or an external battery.

    There's a wrist strap hole on this phone? Awesome!!!

    Forgive me, I'm a klutz. I need a wrist strap to keep me from killing my phone. Already killed a LG Optimus trying to put it away.

    Do any of you use 4G at all? I've only tried turning it on a few times, but the connection never seems to be stable so I just leave it off. I noticed when I had it on though that the battery does seem to drain much much faster!

    Just bought this phone yesterday and am loving it so far. Coming from the evo 4g which I loved, but dropped and shattered the screen Anyway, I'm still getting used to a few things on the phone. I notice the keyboard isn't as easy to use as the one on the evo.

    Anyway, thanks everyone for posting tips. I'm definitely going to look into saving battery life posts.

    I am sure that the 'little hole' about the volume is for plugging in a Wrist/Neck strap.
