Boost the LG G3 Speaker and Headphone Volume

It seems like OEMs are stepping up their game, with regards to the quality of their devices’ sound and speakers. HTC kicked it off with the fabulous Boom Sound speakers on the original HTC One and its successor the One M8, as well as the mid-range Desire 600 and Desire 816, and Sony hopped on board later with their first front facing speakers debuting on the Xperia Z2. With the bar set up high, other OEMs, such as LG and their G3, may be feeling the heat.

With this said, if you’re an LG G3 owner and are not quite happy with the speakers, you may be interested in a tutorial written by XDA Senior Member spiderio. The tutorial teaches you how to boost the volume of the headphone and speakers on the G3, and involves a few changes to a couple xml files. As it’s not a standalone mod, you’re allowed the flexibility of setting your own volume limits, which may be different from person to person. And as always, make sure you make a backup of the original files in case you may want to revert the changes in the future.

If you would like to give this a go, head over to the volume tutorial thread for more information.

One of the Galaxy S6's most flaunted features is its spectacular camera, its 16MP with an f/1.9 aperture performing excellently in well-lit shots as well as low-light ones, with most reviews concluding that it trounces the camera on the iPhone 6 as well. However, all may not be right in Monde de la Samsung, as earlier today, XDA Member Bananaz came across a surprising detail about the shooter on the S6, and while the revelation is not necessary groundbreaking, it...

No, Android Apps on Windows Mobile Isn’t a Good Thing

As Symbian and Blackberry OS gradually gave way to Android and iOS towards the turn of the decade, the former leviathans found themselves struggling to hold their ground and when all seemed lost, they were forced to resort to extreme measures. While Nokia gave in to an acquisition by Microsoft, RIM's plans were more out-of-the-box and one of their efforts to save the platform whose existence was nigh on end was to build a runtime that allowed Blackberry devices to run apps built...
