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.

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...
