Give Your Battery Some Extra Life with OnePowerGuard Pro
Since the beginning of Android, hardware changes have been easy to notice. Quad- and octa-core devices are nothing unusual now, and RAM and storage capacities make phones as powerful as some traditional PCs in certain respects. Unfortunately, they all have one major weakness: battery life. Even the biggest batteries still last a day or two of intensive use on phones and maybe few days on tablets.
Aftermarket kernel improvements can save a bit more of battery, which is a good beginning. Luckily, XDA Senior Member onexuan wrote an application to optimize battery usage in many ways. OnePowerGuard Pro gives users a chance to conserve the battery in six predefined modes, which turn on or off selected services depending on day time, usage, or other personal preferences.
Onexuan states that his application tweaks the phone on kernel-level and optimizes many of factors that can cause battery drain for an overall reduction of 70-80%. Naturally, the app requires your phone or tablet to be rooted. It’s easy to say that something does wonders, but the best way to verify it is trying.
If your battery seems to let you down, you may want to give OnePowerGuard Pro a shot by visiting the application thread for additional details.

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place! When we get so involved in our...
