Get Your Charge Display To Work The Way It Was Meant To

Have you ever had a look at your Droid Charge and thought to yourself “wow! this is a great screen! I mean, look at these colors”, but always thought that the best could actually get better? It looks like XDA Recognized Developer supercurio had this curiosity and decided to start digging into the settings for the screen on his Infuse 4G, which carries a similar (but larger) screen. After much looking, he figured out that the overall way the screen is programmed was the same as with the Galaxy S, which means that the screen is heavily under-performing. He came up with a set of tweaks and settings that he made into an app and shared with the community. This is just a proof of concept, but basically when using this app, you will be presented with two options: Native and Samsung. The first one seem to be able to make the screen display sharper, more color rich (and balanced) images than the Samsung setting. This is yet another great tool for tweaking your device without actually manipulating the hardware itself.

If you have a Charge, please take this for a spin and leave your results and experiences on the thread. So far, the people who have tried it are more than happy with the results. Please share yours.

Infuse use a beautiful huge 4.5″ Super AMOLED Plus screen.. But its driven with Galaxy S screen settings 
DROID Charge is very similar to the Infuse 4G, except the display is a tad smaller. Super AMOLED Plus screen is also optimized for non “Plus” aka Pentile matrix.
That’s why by default everything is over-sharpened and colors over-saturated.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
