The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display.

Fully Loaded BattClock Updated
For some of us it´s very important to keep track of our batteries more accurately, or simply in a different style from the stock WM battery meter. With this in mind, XDA member ZuinigeRijder updated his application BattClock to version 2.1.2. This application is highly customizable as all of its options are configurable via registry. Also, visual feedback can be acceded easily touching a button. It can be used in almost any device as it supports all Windows Mobile versions and most of their different resolutions.

- Free memory percentage indicator or MB, updated once per second, great to see if you have memory leaks!
- CPU percentage indicator, updated once per second, great to see how much work your phone has to do!
- Battery indicator in percentage, indication if charging (default battery percentage character % is changed into tilde character ~)
- Battery Current in mA, updated once per second. Note that cached values are asked, so the battery driver may only update after several seconds.
- Battery Current Force in mA, updated once per second. Note that non-cached values are asked, so the battery driver may give more up-to-date values, but may also drain more battery
- Battery Temperature in Celsius degrees
- Battery Voltage in mV
- 3 Freely configurable Date/Time formats including week number, month name, day name, seconds, PM/AM
- 3 Freely configurable registry keys, default phone strength, missed call count and unread SMS

- Automatic runtime adaption of BattClock on Portrait or Landscape mode (with negative ClockX setting or separate Landscape settings)
- BattClock content can also be shown divided horizontally, e.g. above the Program text
- 6 BattClock stripes, per BattClock stripe the following can be configured:
- Stripe can indicate Battery%, Free Memory%, CPU% or Registry Key 1/2/3 (default Phone signal strength)
- the length of the stripe indicates the percentage left
- Background color
- 3 configurable stripe colors dependent on the thresholds.
- 3 different thresholds (low, medium, high)

You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though?
