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.

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people. This news is no joke though, as Google has pushed the shiny red button to send out over-the-air updates to supported devices. Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries. You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
