Notification LEDs in Android devices can be very useful if they are properly setup. The main purpose of a notification LED is to let you know at a glance that you have missed notifications — negating the need to turn on the screen or unlock the device.
However, Android manufacturers don’t provide any kind of in-built application to customize how the LED notification works. Due to this, most users are unaware that they can customize the notification LED on their Android devices.
Light Flow from Rage Consulting allows you to gain total control over the notification LED of your device and customise it according to your liking. The app will work without any issues on a majority of the Android devices, except for the ones from HTC. Here’s how to use it.
While today’s smartphones may boast just as many pixels as your television and a faster processor than your PC, they’re not great at going outdoors. Drop any of them onto hard concrete without a case and you can almost guarantee you’re in for a pricey repair bill. That’s not the case with the new Samsung Xcover 2, however.
Announcing just this morning, the Xcover 2 is “the ideal smartphone for active explorers who are enjoying outdoor lifestyles and seeking a durable mobile device with essential smartphone capabilities.”
Despite announcing a number of new smartphones at CES just two weeks ago, Huawei has more handsets up its sleeve. In Germany today, the company announced the Ascend G615, another high-end smartphone with a 4.5-inch 720p display, a quad-core processor, and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera.
A leaked photograph claimed to be of Samsung’s official Galaxy S IV press shot has been leaked online, along with specifications for the device. It reportedly came from an insider at Samsung, who claims this is the successor to the hugely successful Galaxy S III. It’s expected to offer a larger 4.99-inch 1080p display, plus a 2GHz quad-core processor. But is the image genuine?
