Galaxy S III SGH-i747 and SGH-T999 Source Code Released

The Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the most powerful phones on the market. Although the AT&T and T-Mobile variants do not sport the 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor found in the international version, they feature an incredibly fast, dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. The Snapdragon S4 features Qualcomm Krait CPU and the Adreno 225 GPU.

The fast hardware practically begs for equally optimized ROMs and kernels. Now thanks to Samsung’s software engineers, the device’s power can be harnessed thanks to the release of GPL-compliant kernel source code for the AT&T SGH-i747 and T-Mobile SGH-T999. The best part is that this is before the devices even officially go on sale. This is great news for kernel developers, looking to get started with development a bit early.

What are you waiting for? Head over to Samsung’s Open Source Release Center and download the SGH-i747 and SGH-T999 kernel source code!

But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
