Ads in Youtube App can be disabled by an Xposed module called Youtube Adaway. If you’ve heard about Xposed for the first time don’t worry follow this step by step guide to install Xposed in your tribute 5 .

LG Risio H343 Adoptable Storage – How to Enable

LG Risio H343 is nothing but LG Tribute 2. The only difference is its GSM, whereas Tribute 2 is CDMA. One more striking difference is that Risio is updated to Marshmallow, even though it was released after LS665.

Android 6.0 has 2 remarkable features called Doze and Adoptable Storage.

Doze is meant to increase the battery life in standby/sleep mode. It won’t activate with the screen on. While in standby, it hibernates every process, except the high priority ones such as calls and texts. In Risio I noticed the battery remained at 100% for a good amount of time after a full charge. Doze works out of the box without any input.

Adoptable storage is a long awaited android feature. It lets you use your external memory card as internal storage to install android apps. However, Lollipop user shouldn’t be disappointed. Apps can be installed to SD card even in LG Tribute 5, tribute 2 etc by rooting and doing few simple steps.

Adoptable Storage feature won’t be helpful for a majority of flagship devices which lack memory card slot.  But for budget androids, it’s a welcome feature. However, it’s surprising that LG has disabled this feature on all of its devices updated to marshmallow. The good thing is it can be enabled via ADB without root. I have followed this Reddit thread to enable this feature
