After weeks of constant freezes and restarts on my Galaxy Note 4 I installed this app. Have been running for over a week with no freezes/restarts! It runs my battery down a little faster, but that should probably be expected since I'm keeping the phone in a partial awake status. Thank goodness I don't have to buy a new phone!
I'll be damned. I have been struggling with my Note 4 for days. My phone had been working fine right up until last Friday when it received an update from T-Mobile. Suddenly it was lagging, freezing, crashing, and getting stuck in boot-loops. I tried *everything* to fix it. Factory reset, new battery, new SD card, I even flashed a new ROM in some hope that I might restore my phone's functionality. I was actually on the phone with a T-Mobile store looking into buying a new phone when I spotted a comment referencing on a Note 4 troubleshooting guide that I had looked up. It seemed like a long-shot. Lo and behold the PARTIAL_WAKE_LOCK worked! I have absolutely no idea why this works, but I am trilled to have my phone back.
This app is The Saviour to my Note 4.Was about to dump my phone after it started misbehaving for the first time ever in the whole two year term that I've been with it.Did everything that I thought would fix the freezing and random booting but nothing worked. I bumped across a video on YouTube about this app and decided to give it a try. OMG,this app has made my phone to come to life again. I'm so happy.Will definitely donate something to the developer. Well done.😊
Jumping on the bandwagon. After 3 weeks and over 20 hours of call time with at&t and Samsung. There only solution was to take it to Samsung experience center in best buy for a reflash. Didn't help. Last option, from Samsung, was to send in my phone for repairs and pay them for repairs. My note was working flawlessly until the Mm update came along. I really wonder if they were trying to boost sales by killing off older devices. Wakelock saved my phone and gave me the ability to send at&t/Samsung my opinion of forced updates. ..!.. I will be donating as this app proves it's not a problem with my "very old phone."
Note 4 on Verizon! Yep, I see that I'm one of the many Note 4 refugees, and this app seems to have completely fixed the problems of freezing and restarting for the 2 days I've used it. If it's still perfect after a week, I'll buy the Donate version. I uninstalled apps, removed the Micro SD card, did a factory reset, all a big waste of time. I set this app to PARTIAL_WAKE_LOCK, and that seems to do it. I didn't see a recommended setting from Darken. Battery life seems about the same, frustration level has gone down to zero. :-)
Galaxy note 4 edge. I tried formatting. No sd card.no sin card. Rollback to 5.1.1. Updated to 6.0.1. Rooted and killed bloat ware. New OEM battery... still had issues. WAKE LOCK though... Samsung should recognise this application if they actually cared about their customers
