There are so many Power Banks out there. However, they are not all the same. Some sacrifice weight for capacity. Others do the opposite. Some come with two ports and some come with more, while others come with less. Some are just batteries with a case around it, but others have some unique features. In this episode of XDA TV, Producer TK reviews the RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless Filehub & Portable Travel Router. This device is the successor to the RP-WD01...
Get to Know Your Device Graphically with Usemon
Windows PC owners will undoubtedly be familiar with the Task Manager’s performance and network graphs that calculate CPU, RAM, and network status in real time. Unfortunately, this feature isn’t native to Android, with the closest thing being the battery statistics accessible through settings. So instead of putting up with its absence, XDA Forum Member iattilagy decided to put together a free app that provides such statistics and data.
Named Usemon, the app presents itself with a comfortable Holo-themed interface that’s color coded and logical in navigation. By sliding between pages, you’ll be able to see the following statistics as real time graphs:
- CPU usage
- CPU frequency
- Ram usage
- Network upload and download status
- Internal, external and system storage status
For devices multiple core CPUs, there are individual graphs for each core, displaying their respective statistics. Additional information about your CPU such as your processor type, CPU architecture variant and revision are also displayed in a separate page.
Another standout feature of Usemon that iattilagy has integrated is the display of real time statistics of that data in the notification area, along with their corresponding graphs. Settings allow for this to be turned off, as well as customized to display select data.
If you’d like to learn more, head over to the application thread for more information.

In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...
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...
