Battery Saving Mega Guide Celebrating User’s 2000th Post

Imagine for a second that you’re coming up fast on an XDA forum milestone. Be it your 50th, 100th, or 1000th post—you really want to make it count. So or how do you best make use of these milestones? Looking back at my own post history, I always had big ideas for every major milestone with a planned celebratory post. Unfortunately, distraction and obligations would always kick in, and I would never quite remember in time for these big moments.

Well luckily, not everyone is quite as easily distractible as your favorite Editor-in-Chief. Proof of this can be seen in XDA Recognized Contributor Riro Zizo‘s 2000th post made just a few days ago. Rather than simply posting random lolcats and troll images in an area I am far too scared to ever venture, Riro Zizo decided to create a battery-saving mega guide, based on previous work he released on his own website.

The guide is split into three posts, based on difficulty level. Easy tweaks that everyone can do are in the OP, while medium difficulty tweaks are in the second post, and advanced tweaks are in the third. Every tweak is explained in great detail to help you make sense of it all, regardless of your skill level. Because of this, the guide serves as a great resource you can send to all your friends complaining about “worse battery life on Android” than what they saw on their iPh*ne.

Make your way over to the battery saving mega guide to get started. And once you’ve given a few of the methods a shot, don’t be shy, and share your results in the comments below!

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us.

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
