    Wrong Aspect Ratio

    Regardless of whether it's portrait or landscape my new tablet does not display images and videos in the correct aspect ratio. For instance squares are like rectangles and people in videos are too thin. All of these exact same images and videos are perfectly displayed on all of my other devices...

    How To Disable Lock Or Erase In Android Device Manager?

    I enabled it in error and I would like to disable it. There are plenty of sites explaining how to enable it, but I can't find one that explains how to disable it, and I can't see any settings where I can do this. Any help really appreciated.

    Email App - Show Emails Without List On Display?

    Using the email app, does anyone know if, when opening an email, it is possible for it to fill more of the screen without the column list on the left, whether it be the Inbox list, Sent list, whatever, being on permanent display? So far I haven't been able to find a way of getting rid of it.

    Antivirus Apps, Yes Or No?

    Ended up buying a fairly cheap Lenovo (Tab 3 10.1) but it's fine for my needs. Tried several free AVs and found Eset to be the best. Not the most comprehensive features list but super-light and unobtrusive. Avast was pretty heavy and caused things to lag a bit and was quite a battery drainer...

    Antivirus Apps, Yes Or No?

    Thanks. I'll probably do something similar to that. Cheetah Mobile support seems fairly good, and they get very good reviews from industry and users alike so I might go with their AV and Clean Master.

    Typical Battery Life Expectancy?

    Thanks for the info. No, I'm not planning on leaving it permanently plugged in. GSam Battery Monitor sounds just the sort of thing I'm looking for. One of its features says you can " Set customizable alarms for various charge states, temperature, and battery health"

    Antivirus Apps, Yes Or No?

    Thanks. I did a search prior to posting and came up with the same threads you linked but there are no recent ones and most are several years old. I see you were using Lookout some years ago. Are you still using it and if so do you still rate it highly? It doesn't seem to get mentioned much these...

    Antivirus Apps, Yes Or No?

    What are your views on them, particularly for someone who will be using unsecured wifi on occasions? Are they beneficial or unnecessary, and if the former, what do you recommend? People I know who use them seem to think Bitdefender and CM Security are pretty good, but that Avast is a bit...

    Typical Battery Life Expectancy?

    I think I'll forget about replacement then. Regarding charging, is it possible to automate this to your preference in settings, ie, advise start charging when the charge drops to, say, 40%, or perhaps shutting the tablet down until it starts charging, and stop charging when it reaches, say...

    Typical Battery Life Expectancy?

    Really appreciate the replies. That sort of longevity you both mention is much more encouraging than a lot of what I've been hearing, and I guess if I remember not to leave it charging when at 100% and don't let the battery fall to 0% every time before recharging that will help. As a last...

    Typical Battery Life Expectancy?

    I'm thinking of buying a tablet but the thing that puts me off most is that their batteries generally cannot be replaced, and that it appears not uncommon for the batteries to stop being able to hold a proper charge after around twelve to eighteen months, and for me it would be totally...
