Eight Great Battery Widgets

Does your phone have a battery? Yeah I thought it might. I’d imagine that you probably want to keep track of how much power you have left in that battery at various time of the day. Why not do so with an aesthetically pleasing and multi-purpose battery widget? Maybe you don’t actually care about your battery level and you’re just one of those people who insists on cramming as many widgets onto your homescreen as humanly possible. Either way these might be of interest.

XDA Forum Member defuzer has posted a collection of simple but well polished battery widgets, so far there are eight available ranging from a typical battery type icon to a circular style widget and even an ice cold beer. As well as displaying your current charge level, the widgets also provide some basic information when pressed including temperature and battery health. There’s also an option to change the color of the text displayed on the widget and four quick toggles allowing you to change settings for WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and display.

They should be compatible with all ROMs and devices running Android 2.1 or above. If you want to give these a try, head on over to the original thread and see which one takes your fancy.

Multi Boot: The Fall of Nandroid?

Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels. They allow easy backup and restore in case things go wrong, which happens invariably when a modification is being tested. With that being said, how relevant are Nandroid Backups to this day? Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...

HTC One M8 Owners: Upgrade to the M9, or Skip?

While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor. Many Android enthusiasts throughout the community were expecting a large redesign of one of the most beautiful handsets ever released, but what we got is something more along the lines of an 'HTC One M8S". So this begs the question, is the M9 worth the upgrade if you already own the M8? Current HTC One M8 users chime in and let us know your thoughts.
