CPU Control Offers Alternative to Other CPU Apps

When it comes to your CPU settings, there isn’t a lot of competition out there. Most users have preferences for what they like to use and what suits their needs. However, not everyone can reap the benefits of some of these apps because sometimes their phone just isn’t supported.

This is a problem that XDA Recognized Developer Juwe11 is attempting to fix with the CPU Control app.

The app functions as you’d expect a CPU app to. The features are standard and include:

Set your MIN and MAX frequencies
Set your Governor
Set your UV settings
Set your Live OC
Make profiles for better controlling your CPU (Battery profile, Screen off profile, more profiles will be added soon) – only in full version
Save your settings on boot
Get info about your CPU
Safe mode

What sets this app apart from others like it is the compatibility range. Juwe11 has put work into making sure the app is compatible with any and every phone that is Android 2.1 and up that has a kernel that supports overclocking and UnderVoltage for those who want to keep their batteries under control.

As usual, be sure that you’re aware that overclocking and UnderVolting any device can be dangerous and is only recommended if you know what you’re doing. However, if you laugh in the face of danger, you can check out the app’s original thread for additional details and you can also find it in the Android Market.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
