AnyUnlock: Resolution For N1’s Power Button Problem

If you’re a Nexus One owner, and you’re fed up with having to press the power button and then having to slide to unlock or maybe your power button is just wearing out, you might want to check out XDA forum member helloworld1‘s little app.

Before developing AnyUnlock, the XDA member was using a combination of three applications in order to use any key to turn the phone one + a widget to turn the phone off + another application to prevent the phone turning on with an accidental tap.

Unsurprisingly finding this combo a little inconvenient, helloworld1 decided to develop his own small app. AnyUnlock has the following features:

  1. Use any key to turn the phone on.
  2. A widget to turn the phone off.
  3. A very simple lock screen to prevent accidental taps.
  4. No root is required.

For more information head on over to the application thread. AnyUnlock is available to download free on the Market.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
