Hope this help.
1. From your home page go to Main Settings by pulling down the Notification Bar and clicking on the Settings icon at the top right of the screen. (it's gear shaped)
2. Scroll down the Settings menu, and click on Applications under the Phone section about two thirds down the page.
3. At the top of this new menu click on "Applications Manager".
4. In the top right corner of the Applications Manager menu click on "More"
5. Now a click on "Draw over Other Applications"
6. Scroll down this menu and find the offending application, in this example "Facebook"
7. Click on the button to the right of your offending application to deselect it.
8. Close out of the Settings menus.

NOTE: Alternately, deselect all the applications under step 8 except those you know pop up over other applications such as messaging, for example.

How do you delete photos/videos?

launch the Photos app, navigate to the Photos tab on the left until you get to Moments view. Then tap Select at the top-right of the screen, and tap each Select link next to each batch of images you want to delete. Tap the Trash button in the bottom-right corner, confirm that you want to remove the images, and they'll be deleted.
IDGYou can also delete images in batches from the iPhone's Moments screen."But hang on a second!" you might be murmuring in an exclamatory way, "I just launched the Photos app on my phone and there are still pictures there. What's up with that!?"
Ah, that would be your Photo Stream.
"And those photos are still taking up space on my iPhone, right?"
Well. Yes.
"And so we haven't really gotten rid of all the photos on my iPhone, have we?"
No. No we haven't.
Sooo you need to switch off Photo Stream on your iPhone. To do that go to Settings > Photos & Camera. In the resulting screen flick the My Photo Stream switch to Off. This will cause the pictures to disappear from your phone.


Delete Single Photo

  1. Open the "Gallery" or "Photos" app.
  2. Open the album that contains the photo you wish to remove.
  3. Tap and hold the photo until a trash icon appears at the upper-right portion of the screen.
  4. Tap the "Trash" icon located at the upper-right portion of the screen.
  5. Confirm your selection by tapping "OK" (Gallery) or "Move to Trash" (Photos) and the photo is deleted.

Delete Multiple Photos

  1. Open the "Gallery" or "Photos" app.
  2. Open the album that contains the photos you wish to remove.
  3. Tap the "Menu" icon located at the upper-right corner of the screen.
  4. Choose "Select item" (Gallery) or "Select..." (Photos).
  5. Tap the photos you wish to remove. They will become highlighted.
  6. Tap the "Trash" icon located at the upper-right corner of the screen.
  7. Confirm your selection by tapping "OK" (Gallery) or "Move to Trash" (Photos) and the photo is deleted.

Delete Entire Album

  1. Open the "File Manager" app.
  2. Navigate to the location where the photo album is located. You can usually find them in the "DCIM" or "Pictures" folder.
  3. Tap and hold the folder you wish to remove.
  4. Select "Delete".

What does screen overlay detected mean with android phone?

Step one: "Screen overlay detected" fix

Find you what apps have permission to draw over the screen. On a non-Samsung smartphone, follow these steps:
  • Open the Settings
  • Tap the magnifying glass at the top right
  • Enter the search term "draw"
  • Tap Draw over other apps
  • Alternative route: Apps> [gear icon]> Draw over other apps
For Samsung users:
  • Open the Settings
  • Then Applications > Application manager
  • Press on More > Apps that can appear on top

Step two

You will find yourself in front of a list of apps that have permission to use floating buttons or other screen overlays. Now you need to identify the problem app and temporarily deny it permission to draw over the screen. Here is are some pointers on how to identify the app that's causing trouble:
  • Do you see an app bubble on your screen? If do, this app is almost certainly the cause. Either you hide the app bubble or disable the app in the list
  • Do you have an app installed that changes the colors on the display or adjusts the brightness?
  • Reportedly, Clean Master can be a trouble maker. If you see Clean Master in the list, disable it
  • If there's no obvious cause, disable everything

Step three

Now you can try launching the app again, and it should request permissions without the "Display overlay detected" error getting in the way.
For Samsung users: We have also received a report that suggests the one-handed keyboard setting could be the root cause. Deactivate it by going to Settings> Advanced features > One-handed operation.

Step four: reactivate screen overlays

In order for the app(s) that you have disabled in step two to work again, you need to re-enable its overlay permissions. If you turned off all apps, it might be worth considering only reactivating those apps that you actually use.
This is a rather inelegant workaround, but it's the best we have until Google makes the necessary changes to prevent app overlays from interfering with permission dialogues.
Has this guide helped? If you are still experiencing the error after following our guide, leave a comment, so we can try and address the problem.

How do I get things to download to my SD card on my phone?

Depending on what operating system you have, some support for keeping the bulk of the app memory on the SDcard, yet a little of the app is still stored on your phone anyway. Phones do this to keep the path open to the place on the SD card where app info is stored. More economical phones have less internal memory to support this. Pretty much, txt messages, Photos, and videos must go =/
