Optimized Dual Core CPU Tweaks for the Sensation

Android devices have sported dual-core processor for quite some time, but developers are still finding ways to tweak the cores on various devices to give a more performance-oriented experience without adversely affecting battery life. HTC Sensation owners can now partake thanks to an elaborate script that optimizes their dual-core experience by XDA Senior Member iba21:

screen ON:
– dualcore with all cores TURNED ON
– governor badass for all of 2 cores
– min freq at 192mhz for all of 2 cores
– max freq at 1.566ghz for all of 2 cores
– first phase freq at 810mhz for bla bla bla
– second phase freq at 1.188ghz for bla bla bla
– third phase freq at 1.566ghz (is the maxfreq)

screen OFF:
– only core0 is TURNED ON
– governor conservative
– minfreq 192mhz
– maxfreq 540mhz

Described more simply, the cores are governed such that the CPU is not taxed more than necessary to accomplish any given task, but this is done without sacrificing performance. The installation procedure is a tad convoluted, as users need to flash the Bricked kernel and copy a number of files into various folders in the /system partition.

Head over to the original thread to get started.

But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
