Question

Does this phone have the feature of screenshotting things?

I currently am a disappointed owner of the Huawei Ascend Y, which does NOT have this feature, and I'd like to have it. Also, if you're able to screenshot, how do I screenshot on this device?

Yes it will, by using the "power button plus volume down button" pushed simultaneously to take screenshots. I just learned that. I have my Majesty only 4 days now. I love it.

Most 2.3 Gingerbread phones will have to be rooted in order to install an app for screenshots. So unless you want to root, you probably will have a difficult time finding a screenshot app for your Ascend Y.

Screenshot capabilities became standard on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and above. This phone has Android 4.1, Jelly Bean so should have the capability built-in.

Most 4.0 (and above) phones will use the "power button plus volume down button" pushed simultaneously to take screenshots. That's how mine works and I have a 4.0 ICS phone. I'm sure somebody who has this exact phone will chime in and confirm one way or the other.

How do you turn off -forever-haptic vibrate?

It is on browser and certain functions. It's that vibrate feedback and it's very inconsistent. It's not in language/keyboard; not in accessibility; not in sound. It is constantly there for browser and search. driving me nuts.

I like using the Swype keyboard. When I got the Swype app from the play store, the hepatic vibrate automatically turned off.
I too could not find a way to turn it off or mute it. It has never come back on since downloading Swype.

nope. That's not it either. Its haptic vibration - constant on internet, messaging and using the 3 keys on black bottom area of phone. My friends & co-worker's phones they have and androids have this feature -usually in language and accesibility. This feature/line is missing. Just skips right over where is should be when I compare to other android phones and tablets.

Go to messaging..click the menu key(three lines) at the bottom, click settings, scroll down to "vibrate", which is right after "Select Ringtone." Choose never.

no, not related. Nothing is on (checked). It's not in accessibility (handicap). Not in sounds I even toyed with vibrate on and off with ringing - nothing. Even system sounds are all unchecked. All I have is a simple ring for incoming calls.

Do you have "vibrate on keypress" checked in language and input?

Nav is incorporated into the Google Maps app. No need for a separate one. Either type or speak your destination. Once you find it, it shows bottom left a car icon with approximate drive time. Tap on the drive time and it'll take you to the option to turn on navigation. It locks GPS quickly and gives you turn by turn in plenty of time to prevent missing your turns. I have no complaints.

Again, please excuse my first response and disregard as I didn't catch the "HD" part of your question.

You'll have to spend a bit more if you want to watch HD video on a smartphone. Phones in the price range generally do not have HD quality display capabilities.

I was just answering assuming you wanted to watch normal YouTube and having the faster data speeds that the Unico will give would be better than the choppiness and waiting for buffering that 3G speeds will sometimes have a tendency to do depending on location, time of day, tower congestion, etc. I'm using a 3G smartphone now and that happens when I watch YouTube. YouTube on 4G LTE is generally pretty seamless and smooth.

Sorry about the bad advice.

My advice, and hopefully Jarryed will chime in and probably agree, is to spend the extra $20 and go with the ZTE Unico for $199.88 (copy-and-paste):

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Straight-Talk-ZTE-Unico-Z930-LTE-Prepaid-Cell-Phone/34455827

The reasoning is that the ZTE Unico is capable of receiving 4G LTE will be much better at streaming YouTube videos when it's in an area of LTE coverage. This phone, the Majesty, is limited to 3G data speeds as is the Centura. YouTube with this phone and the Centura will be doable but you may experience some lag and annoying buffering.

4G-LTE will have much higher speeds and lower-latency than 3G and will make a substantial difference in my opinion and experience.

answer 4
This phone does not play HD video. I also regret to inform you that the Centura also will not play HD video.

Neither screen on these phones is HD capable.

You will need a minimum screen resolution 1280 x 720.

You will need to ask the carrier you are switching to in regards to transferring your phone. I do believe most of them you can. I have heard that it can take a few weeks. I just got a new number.
you need gmail for the apps but you can use your own email address you just add it.

Yes you can transfer your number. You do not need gmail though it is wise to make an account and to use with Google Play. Great for contacts when switching to another phone(backup purposes).

Your Cricket number needs to be active in order to port to this phone. What you will need from Cricket is your account number, pin number, and personal information.

You will then purchase this phone and a $45 Unlimited Card. You can then call Customer Service or port your number online via straighttalk.com >> Transfer Number. Make sure dot is in "transfer number from another carrier." Proceed to input the required information. After all activation steps are complete, you should have a working phone within an hour or two.

I don't have this phone but I do know that most lower-to-mid priced Android phones nowadays do not have LED exterior notification lights.

I missed that feature on my LG L40G. I also missed knowing when the battery was fully charged as my old phone would have its LED lit in red when it was charging and then turned green when it was fully charged.

I started researching apps and found that there are a variety of apps that can work as notifiers. The one that I chose is "NoLED" which is perfect for what I want.

It uses a screen notification for each of the notifications you want to program it for. One color icon for missed text messages, another color for missed calls, another color for missed voice mails, etc. You can customize the colors, icons, time intervals, etc. It also has a battery charge notification.

They are "floating" indicators on a semi-blacked out screen and so far I'm pleased because it doesn't seem to use that much battery ...I'm thinking less than what an LED would use.

There are other apps that work in a similar fashion but I'm satisfied with this one and it seems to have higher reviews than the others.

Copy-and-Paste:

If somebody posts that this particular phone has an LED notification light, disregard what I've said here.

Minutes from a $30 plan will not transfer to this phone. Straight Talk Androids require the $45 Unlimited Service cards.

If your current phone is already on the $45 Unlimited Plan, then yes. All you need to do is transfer your service to the new phone.

If your other phone is a smartphone on the $45 Unlimited Plan...yes it will. Transfer your Straight Talk service to this phone on the website. You will be up and running in under a half hour.

If your other device is on the $30 plan, then no, it will not transfer. You would want to wait the 2 weeks, buy a $45 Unlimited Plan and then transfer when your other phone is due for a card.
