Get TouchWiz and Other Fun Stuff on the ZTE Blade

While there are many people who aren’t fans of Samsung’s OEM skin Touchwiz, that doesn’t mean that others wouldn’t enjoy it if they were given the chance to use it. When a device development begins to get a little stagnant, it’s nice to see the opportunity to see a different UI come in and give users an opportunity to flash something new. And now we have some TouchWiz to play with on the ZTE Blade.

With some help from others on the same quest, XDA Senior Member weeo has released TouchWiz for the Blade, and believe it or not, the user response has been positive. Along with TouchWiz, users will also get a number of other modifications to their Blades. Says weeo:

– TOUCHWIZ3.0
– SII Boot animation
– SII sounds
– TWframework
– Bravia Engine
– SGSII Icons
– Samsung apps
– Beats Audio
– TWapps ( not complete + FC’s )
– WBAWS Kernel (I think)
– Much more & More to come!

The bundled extras all amount to a pretty decent experience for Blade users. It is still in beta, though, and some Samsung apps as well as the Samsung keyboard is reported as force closing. However, the developer is working on fixing everything, so users who want to try it out need not fear that things won’t get fixed. Until then, though, users would do best showing patience.

If you’re running the Blade and want some TouchWiz action, check out the original thread for more information, screen shots and download links. As usual, don’t forget that backup!

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
