What is Google Play Protect

Google introduced its Android security namely ‘Google Play Protect’. It does not come with the downloaded app. It automatically installed with the update of ‘Google Play Services’. I have checked it works with Android Jellybean, Android KitKat and the next operating system such as Android Lollipop, Android 6,7,8.

What is Google Play Protect?

Google says to let it manage the installation of apps and the users should be in the peace of mind in the palm of your hand. It is a security blanket for your android device. It scans regularly for the installed app for security. It provides guidance to users when they download an app from Google Play Store.

It is an on-access security system. It never sleeps and continues to scan and protect your device. It works with Google Play services and sandboxing methods to keep your device safe. It updates on the background and those are the silent updates and it aims to provide the latest mobile security.

Find My Device:

It has ‘Find My Device’ as a device administrator to keep track of your device. Sign in to Google Account when the device misplaced. It can remotely lock your device. Display the message on the lock screen can even erase all data to clear data from the lost device. What it enables you to control the data within your reach and even if the device misplaced, stole or lost you can control your data and keep it safe and private.

They provides full control of your data with you from ‘Find My Device’. If they misplace it, it locks the phone so that your near and dear ones if they found your device will get this message and this makes your data locked until you get the device. If your phone lost or stolen then, you can erase data remotely and completely lock your phone to safeguard your private information.

Google Play Protect always runs in the background:

The power of Google and present in each and every Android device makes it powerful and in an estimation, it is fifty billion apps scanning done by ‘Google Play Protect’ in a day to make your life easier. Apart from this all android apps go through rigorous android application scanning and sandboxing before they appear with Google Play Store. When app developer violates Google term and conditions they are suspended from providing the app to Google Play Store.

This makes running on Google Play Store stubborn, and here security of users is paramount for Google. When you download the app it scans and approved by Google beforehand. Apart from this ‘Google Play Protect’ scans billions of apps daily in million Android devices to understand the behaviour of apps and from there it also detects the harmful behaviour of rogue apps.

Apart from this with the regular updates of Google Chrome for Android, and safe browsing is preinstalled with it, warning to visitors to unsafe sites so that you get warning about it and taken back to safer sites. This keeps your Android device safer and completely negate chances of downloading of malware from a web browser.

How to enable Google Play Protect on an android phone?
  1. First makes sure before downloading app enable ‘Google Play Protect’ from Google Play Store.
  2. Open your device’s Google Play Store app
  3. Tap Menu > Play Protect icon
  4. Download apps from Google Play Store only.
  5. Before downloading app do see recommendations from Google Play Protect.
  6. Add Google accounts for backing up your device.
  7. Set a screen lock.
  8. Go to device settings and then security and the device administrator and activate ‘Find My Device’ to allow to find my device to block or erase a lost device.
  9. In this way also Google Play Services cannot be uninstalled.
  10. Then last not the least update Google Apps to receive latest Google services.

Greenify Wakelock

Since Android 6 application battery management known as application power saving which can save battery power by managing power sources of app efficiently so that, it consumes less battery output. It comes under auto power save mode such as always or automatic. Most of application power saving processes comes under battery optimisation process and saves battery life efficiently.

Most of older versions of the android, does not have efficient application management, thus most of the apps runs in background and stays there. Most of the rooted Android device has this facility. older Android operating systems do not imply this. Greenify is a good option, and it is a wakelock and works nicely with older Android devices.

How Greenify Works?

Greenify works with rooted android devices. You can download it from Google Play Store. It has free version and paid versions. Google in newer android versions introduces Doze mode which works like, the app running and when it stops it also stops all its important battery consuming apps.

Greenify Wakelock is a good idea to use its older version of the Android. It speeds up device which has one GB of RAM. When wakelock detector detects that Greenify employs almost 16 percentages of time to wake the device and the app itself is consuming higher amount of her battery.

There is no option inside Greenify app to disable it. Now, the question arises whether use of such app is saving battery life or eating out battery rapidly. It runs the phone is rapid manner there is no doubt as within lesser RAM devices, it stops apps and this makes phone perform maximum.

Then another question is whether, stopping apps abruptly of course without root is going to majke phone good or weaken phone further which is slowly not getting security and culminative update due to older android operating system.

It is all about identifying battery draining apps and then allowing wakelock such as Greenify without root to work it and stops that apps still the users allow it. It is simple but older operating system does not have such permissions and capacity to handle such requests.

In the long run, it might make such an the operating system vulnerable to stop when such wakelock are there for longer durations. From Android 6 and on, android has its own battery management such as Doze which recognises application consuming batteries automatically and then stops these apps when these are not in use.

Greenify vs Doze

It is definitely the most advanced methods to treat and find such processes where with Greenify you need to identify such processes and then allow these to stop with Greenify. You need to provide Device Administrator right to Greenify to work and in addition to it you need to allow various other permissions to work it.

Doze mode can appear and work with Android 6 or later. It cannot work with older android versions. Greenify works nicely with older than well as newer android versions. Greenify works nicely when the device is running. Doze works only when the device is in the state of hibernation.

Greenify works nicely, and it empowers users to hibernate app only when it is not running. It works when the phone is in the state of idle or when device automatically locks. It automatically stops these apps and hibernate it automatically.

Greenify is not for standard users. It is for geeks. You need to distribute it and allow devices to determine which app to run in the background and which app to stay in the state of hibernation. In android 4.4 it drains batteries, but it speeds up the phone. Most of android 4 devices come up with 1 GB of RAM. Greenify works nicely, and it performs high speed phone functions.

In these android devices DOZE mode is not there. With Greenify, most of functions related with app perform rapidly. Though, due to wakelock of device in order to hibernate each app this consumes battery. On the other hand app management gets nicel boost with it.

Doze does not hibernate system apps. Greenify paid versions can hibernate system apps. In this way, it is unique. With its paid version, the hibernate app can show notification. Normally, in Doze mode this is not there but with android 8 and above with doze mode hibernate app show notification though in the previous version of android such as android 6 and android 7 this facility is not there but with Greenify this is there.

Exclusive Tricks for a faster samsung galaxy grand of android

For the last few months, I have been utilizing my time with Android and in these moments I have learnt plenty of ideas and tricks. I have been writing and examining codes on Android applications, but now I have come to its graphic user interface so as to learn some tricks which are best for the layman.

Introduction:

I always use tricks in accordance with Google, this means when I try to customize Android, I do not “root” for the phone, all I want to share those tricks which are better known to Google and original equipment manufacturers. In this series of writing, I shall be writing about Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos powered by Android Jelly Bean. It is a super success in mid smartphone phablet segment.

Before writing these exclusive tweaks which no one will find elsewhere on the Internet, here are some of the best features which make this phone the best seller among all segment of smartphones.

It has the deluxe large display, with immersion viewing, better font viewing angle as well as the persistent viewing experience. It is a best-seller in this segment but surprisingly Samsung’s love affair with its own software is making the entire work with the operating system more buggier and heavier. It is a little heavier and portable.

On the first selling, Samsung is selling a beautiful flip cover with Galaxy Grand and it makes it costly and it gives one such brilliant aspect of the smartphone. It is upgrading to the latest version of Android Jelly Bean, and probably this update is the last update. No one knows, when one more update will come to Samsung Galaxy Grand.

Google Now on Android Jelly Bean:

It has Google Now, which is ubiquitous in all google search and it connects you with different Google services and many such sports and technical updates come to light and it reaches to notifications panel. It gives some specific keywords search results and gives you different relevant links at Google now. It is helpful and one article can be included on it.

It has multi-window, which I do not find anything special and the rotate window works slowly and this should work in a straightforward manner without any hitches and glitches.

It has dual sim, but the phone becomes lazy with two sims at work. It has better encryption feature, but after encryption, you cannot sim as a network option. It is really bad and android should look over it and try to correct this flaw.

It has a TFT display with dual-core CPU. But it has no special GPU, and this extremely smooth functioning of phones does not available. In future Samsung should consider it in placing chips in order to carry out this segment more prone to excellent workout.

It has a wide variety of sensors and it weighs 162 grams. It gives 50GB of Dropbox storage as well as 64 GB of the external memory slot. Its battery capacity is OK, but it is not a recommendation for long-term multitasking. Generally, during multitasking one needs to connect with electricity so as not to implement out of battery power.

Features:

All these are specifications of this phone. It has one GB of RAM, but some space is reserved for system files. For this, it is essential to do away with unnecessary services and applications so as to make this phone faster for daily use. Samsung uses a 1GHz Hummingbird processor which is fast and works brilliantly with wireless Internet connectivity.

It detects Wi-Fi connectivity from a distance and it is robust in detecting all these signals. Here are some tricks which you will not be found anywhere to make Samsung galaxy grand speedier and more accessible.

Exclusive tips and tricks for a faster Samsung Galaxy Grand of Android:

In my opinion, the Android operating system should have software from Google only and software from original equipment manufacturers such as Samsung is not going to turn it better. Android has enough provisions for third-party software developers to include their software as if it is seen there as default installation.

samsung galaxy grand duos efficient memory optimization

Samsung Galaxy grand Duos was released five to six years back. It has Android JellyBean operating system. During that time, Android Jelly bean is like the release of Windows XP. Its seamless user interface provides awesome management of customisation. The back side of this operating system is that it is resource hug and response time of opening up various ap takes some time.

All these informations are not cheat shit but it is the practical way to understand how to distribute resources of operating system throughout different fair parameters.

Samsung Galaxy Grad Duos:

Inside Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos it has Android Jelly bean, initially it is installed with android 4.1 and subsequently a big update makes it to android jelly bean and it has one GB of RAM. during that time a smart phone having one GB of RAM is a good smartphone. Sadly, android jelly bean with this amount of RAM not operating nicely.

Normally Android Jellybean operating system takes almost 196 MB of RAM and this means that the rest 804 MB of RAM is for rest of working environment. It has inbuilt harddrive storage of 8 GB and out of it Android Jellybean operating system takes3.94 GB and the rest space is for applications, images and other multimedia contents.

In its latest updates, it allows users to install app on SD card and this makes management of application in relation to its space management good and nice. Follow is the screen shot of how inbuilt storage distribution.

So the concern about lesser storage place is not there. One can install apps on SD card and then download offline contents into it and for this most part of these applications management makes the most of storage place outside scope of inbuilt card.

During that time Samsung Galaxy grand Duos offers the large amount of storage place for Drop Box and that adds additional storage options. First try to uninstall or disable apps which are unnecessary. Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos comes up with large number of unwanted apps and you can disable it to make it more space and more RAM as well.

It also speeds up the phone as the lesser number of background processes runs with it. You can disable large number of apps such as Facebook, Flipboard, Samsung Link and so on. It not only saves vital space but speeds up your phone. Use automatic screen brightness and disable hardware specific apps such as Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi unless as and when you require enabling it and then disable it.

Enable power saving mode and it has two sub components such as CPU power saving and scree power saving and use both to perform your phone in cool manner. With CPU power saving mode phone does not run in its highest speed thus save CPU for vital work purposes.

With screen power saving mode it uses lesser screen composition as most of battery goes on from phone due to screen functions. Then makes screen time out in the setting of display to se to 15 seconds so that whenever the phone is not in use it automatically stops screen and save s battery to work efficiently.

Conclusion:

While all of these are good but I am big supporter of running the phone in its full capacity. This means running the phone with maximum central processing unit. This phone has two CPUs which means dual core and this means all of these works can be done in twice speed and it is important to uninstall or disable apps that are not in use and this make more room for RAM function and thus speeds up loading and running of phone in full capapcity.

I think battery saver option is good when you are on tour and wants to preserve phone battery but in normal circumstances it is better to stop battery saver as well as the screen birghtness as and when screen brightness is set to its maximum it provides awesome amount of display with larger and clear functions. In the end of this discussion it is the decision of users and it should varry from person to person.
