Link SMS Notification and Ringer Volumes

One strange behavior in Android that you’ve likely never noticed on Android relates to incoming text messaging sounds. In order to adjust your incoming text message notification volume, you normally need to adjust your notification volume rather than your incoming call volume. However, a text message is more related to your device’s “phone” functionality than, let’s say, an incoming Hangouts notification. Therefore, it makes sense to have your ringer volume adjust your incoming text message sound instead.

The reason for this behavior is that incoming text message sounds are processed through the notification audio stream, rather than going through the ringer audio stream. Thus, changing ringer volume does not affect incoming text messages. Thanks to XDA Senior Member OXINARF, however, this is no longer an issue.

OXINARF’s modification comes in the form of an Xposed module, so naturally, you’ll need to have XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed Framework (thread) installed. After that, simply install and activate the module, reboot, and enjoy your slightly more logical volume management. While originally intended for the Samsung Galaxy S III, the developer says that it should work on pretty much any device.

More information can be found in the module thread. The module is open source, so if you would like to build from it, head over to the project’s Github.

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. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
