Asphalt 7 Patch Delivers Better Graphics on Newer Devices
Downloading a game from Google Play doesn’t always guarantee that it will have the best graphics possible. Much like console games, Android game visual settings are usually locked in place to ensure smooth game play. While this is great for those who want to play games on older devices, users with newer devices could always have a little better.
Now, there’s a patch for Asphalt 7 to improve the visuals for those with faster devices. The patch was released by XDA Senior Member nfsmw_gr and includes a number of features. They include:
Now the game has:
1)anti aliasing enabled
2)the car and enviroment looks much better and the biggest plus
3)it it runs 60 fps most of the time!! (i need confirmation about this,although it’s much smoother!)
4)POTENTIALY decrease battery drain due to less workload for the gpu with the new settings…
I’ve played 20 minutes and only 5% is gone!(using lh3 ics and siyah 1.5.2 with undervolted and overclocked cpu+gpu (1600mhz cpu,533mhz gpu)
It is also quite easy to install, as it only involves moving a modified file to the proper location in the game folders. While this may not be the best choice for those with older devices, those running the latest hardware such as the Samsung Galaxy S III may find the game much more appealing after the modification.
There are two versions—one for the paid version of the game and one for the free version. The free version is said to be available in the Samsung App Store, but it is only for a limited time and other restrictions. For more details, head to the original thread.

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
