Get More Control of Your HTC Sensation With TakeControl

Getting control of the CPU core(s) in your device has been all the rage recently. And with the ability to turn cores on or off as well as over and under clocking them, users have the ability to fine tune their CPUs nicely.

While most recent HTC CPU control modifications have centered around the flagship One lineup, it was only a matter of time for things to pop up for older but still popular devices such as the HTC Sensation. XDA Senior Member xXxPachaxXx has released a mod that is strikingly similar to other dual-core mods available. He also gives all due credit to Recognized Developer -viperboy- for his previously mentioned work.

The mod is set up a bit differently from -viperboy-‘s popular mod from the One series. As opposed to having a single zip file to flash that turns the 2nd core on at all times, TakeControl has a total of three installations. The first is basically the aforementioned dual-core mod. The second is actually the exact opposite, as it turns off the second core entirely. The third installation brings you back to the stock configuration, should you need to revert. This is very cool as users can tune their system specifically to their needs. Use the single core configuration if your performance is fine and you’re having battery trouble, use the dual-core configuration if you want more performance, or revert back if something isn’t working right.

With these dual-core mods already out for the One series, HTC Sensation and a couple other HTC devices, don’t be surprised if you start seeing this mod pop up on even more devices.

Head on over to the original thread for more information.

Android M Code Name: Macadamia Nut Cookie

While the official name for the latest iteration of Android has yet to be revealed, the code name used internally by Google has been seen to be Macadamia Nut Cookie (MNC). This will almost certainly not be the final name for the release with rumors so far leaning towards milkshake, much like Key Lime Pie became Kit Kat and Lemon Meringue Pie became Lollipop. The acronym MNC has now also started to appear in several locations in AOSP, just look out...

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...
