Default Anyway to stop last used feature coming up?

Hi guys,

Any chance you can stop the last used feature coming up on turn on.

Such as videos starting, pictures or music.

I would rather just the home screen with nothing playing.

Thank you.

Laurence

You cant do that on the P3 yet, i hope, that is a feature that was on the P3, but hopefully with a new F.W. upgrade it will be added, but i guess that for now You can just pause your music, or video before you turn it off so it wont start or just go to the home screen before you turn it off

Yes, I am having to do that currently. Oh well .

Hopefully Samsung will update the firmware, some things could be improved with a bit of coding.

Thanks for taking the time to reply!

The Samsung P2 has an option in Settings for Start Mode. The choices are Home and Last State. I'm starting to see why the P3 is selling for less than older P2s are still selling for. It's less capable in many ways.

The P2 had a full life to recieve updates, and the P3 is still pretty new....isn't it a bit early to give up on it like that? Of course, if you're tired of your P3 or Q2, you could send them my way.

I think Samsung must be working on something big. Hope so anyway.

Shame they give no contact email address.

The P3 should have started out where the P2 ended. It looks to me like they didn't even look at the P2 when designing the P3. There should have been a list of things to keep, things to improve, and new things to add. It's more like they started with an older cell phone and said "Keep the Widgets an Haptic. Delete the phone part, but not all of it. Now try and make it a media player."

I like the feature as an option on the P2. I hate it as a mandatory requirement on the P3. It's far less efficient if you don't do the same thing every time you turn on the P3. If I listened to music last, but want to listen to the radio the next time, I've got to tap once to get the control to appear, Press and hold the back icon to get back to the main screen. Then tap the Radio icon. If the player could be set to go nack to Home on power-up, then it would have been one tap to get to radio. Even if I'd wanted to be in the now playing music screen that would have been only one press on the music icon. I'm more likely to want to listen to different music though, which still requires a tap for controls, another for back, another for back, etc.. from then now playing screen. It's one tap from the Home menu for the upmost level in the music options.
