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.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
