Kernel Comparison for the EVO

This fantastic comparison between kernels has been compiled by XDA member skydeaner to show results across the many available kernels for our beloved EVO devices. Why is this important? The reason is very simple, kernels are worked and tweaked by many different devs with various philosophies on what kernels should have, what it should fix, what enhancements should be included, etc. Some kernels may give you a better frame rate (FPS), while others might make your device fly speed-wise. Careful consideration must be given to every kernel as each one has its own advantages and disadvantages.

The tests performed in this article are made with a variety of standard benchmarking apps, including Quadrant, Linpac and FPS2D. Moreover, the same testing criteria was used throughout the comparison, so even if you use a different rom, the performance comparisons should be relatively similar as most roms are built on similar bases (more or less). A quick point to be made, a lot of people disagree about the usability of Quadrant and claim that the results from it are relatively meaningless. This is half true, but even if it was completely true and the results were indeed meaningless, it would still give you a good comparison between the different kernels and the results should correlate to other tests performed.

The results are very well laid out in several bar graphs for ease of looking at which one performs better. So, if you are curious about which kernel to flash with your favorite rom, make sure that you drop by the original thread. The source site can be found here.

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...
