Improve the Quality of Your Nexus 5 Photos with Simple Mod

The Google Nexus 5 is an undoubtedly great device. That said, its camera’s image quality leaves much to be desired. Google tried to improve the camera by applying some patches in Android 4.4.1, but the camera can still be improved further.

A few weeks ago, we talked about a camera mod for the LG G2 created by XDA Recognized Contributor Jishnu Sur™. This modification fixed a few issues like low video frame rate in low lighting, as well as a few other minor issues. Now, the modified version of the camera app is available for the Nexus 5, and the results are impressive.

Full HD movies can now use 20 Mbit, minimizing compression artifacts. Also, recorded audio has been improved, and according to developer it has no noise cancellation disturbance. This modification can’t be considered stable just yet, as there are a few things not working yet, like the front facing camera. Despite this, the overall improvement thanks to this camera app is significant. Of course, you can always revert to stock if you’d like. All you need to do is to flash a provided update.zip in your favorite recovery. To use this modification, your bootloader must be unlocked and your device must be rooted.

If you wish to improve your Nexus 5’s image quality, you should definitely visit the modification thread and give this mod a try.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship.
