I've noticed that any clock widget I use generally freezes while phone is idle. In other words, when I unlock my phone the widget will be stuck at a different time than what it actually is. A reboot puts in all back in order. Any one else experience this?

Re: Clock widget freezes

No not at all, and I use several different clock widgets. I also checked with my friend who has the AT&T Note3 model and she hasn't experienced this either. Must be a conflicting app of some sort.

Re: Clock widget freezes

Thanks spencerdl. It happens on both my VZW and AT&T Note 3 ' s . I wonder if it has anything to do with Beweather as that is the only app that both phones have alike. Well besides FB.

This is from the VZW Note 3.

I use Beweather, Android Clock Widgets, Android Battery widget and Zooper Widget on a daily basis. Have you tried delete, reset and reinstall?

Re: Clock widget freezes

I have. Of course it could be a bad file in my Beweather folder. Started on the AT&T note. All I did was transferred files for fonts and icons for the app.

Re: Clock widget freezes

You stated in your original post that all your clock widgets freeze....even the stock clock widgets?

Re: Clock widget freezes

Yes sir. Even the stock ones. I guess what I will do is start fresh with Beweather. It did the same on my Note 2. It has to be a bad file in there somewhere.

Spencerdl, just to make sure I remembered correctly...This is a screen shot with stock clock widget frozen as of a few minutes ago. I did everything I needed to do with weather app but still happens. On to the next....

Re: Clock widget freezes

This is NOT normal for sure. Maybe a trip to a carrier store or a call to Samsung might be in order....especially since it's freezing with the stock time widget.

Re: Clock widget freezes

What gets me is the fact that both my Verizon and AT&T phones experience this. It has to be something I've installed.

Nope not at all and I get excellent battery usage....My Note3 has been off the charger since 8AM. I also don't use auto update.

Since it's happening to both your Verizon and AT&T Note3's, I'm also thinking it must be something that you have on both devices.

Lol...sorry...This either started with my Note 1 or Note 2...I wonder if it has anything to do with my wallpaper. That's the only thing I have not messed with yet but have used on all 3 Notes.

Is it a "live" wallpaper? The Marine Corps wallpaper is a live rotating wallpaper.
