This wonderful Geek-Christmas time of the year is back once more, promising a lot of exciting reveals from big manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung, but also some pretty gems teased by other smaller OEMs. What kind of exciting products will we see? While we've got a lot of leaked information from the highly expected S6 and M9, there is still a lot to learn about both - and about everything else that will be shown. What kind of trends will...
Mod for the LG G2 Brings 120 fps and 4k Ultra HD Video Recording
The LG G2 offers some pretty nice camera performance out of the box. Thanks to its 13MP sensor and optical image stabilization, both pictures and 1080p video come out crisp and clean. However, this is XDA and we don’t ever settle for what’s given to us by the OEMs. Instead, we tweak and modify our devices to make them as good as they can possibly be.
XDA Senior Member xdabbeb recently created a handy mod for the LG G2 that gives it substantially improved camera capabilities. The stock camera application available for the device allows it to take 1080p video at 60 fps. But with xdabbeb’s mod, you can now capture 4k Ultra HD video at 30 fps or standard 720p video at 120 fps. In addition, this mod also allows you to enable HDR in your videos, and ISO 1600 for stills. And to add extra polish to your videos, the mod also allows you to enable electronic image stabilization in addition to the hardware optical image stabilization offered by the camera lens.
The mod should be compatible with various variants of the G2 running many different firmware packages. But given how many possibilities there are, it’s best to make sure you have a full Nandroid backup before flashing. Head over to the original thread to boost your G2’s camera capabilities.

QuickPic, Google Photos, and the other mainstays treat raw images like they don't exist. This rundown seeks to fill the void and give you full control over your precious pictures....
While the majority of the top apps have already incorporated Google's newest design language, there are still very many apps that are in need of some Material Design love. Which apps do you think are most desperately in need of an update?
