Revitalize Your Sony Xperia SP with Speedy Droid

Smartphones are pretty high maintenance devices. No matter how impressive the spec sheets are, the phone in your hand will inevitably get cluttered and unkempt with daily use, personalization, customization, and modifications. This is why it’s a good idea to have a ‘spring cleaning’ of sorts every once in a while, just to refresh your device.

So for Sony Xperia SP users looking to do so, Speedy Droid may be of interest. Developed by XDA Recognized Developer Divaksh, Speedy Droid is a tool that performs a variety of actions intended to refresh your device as well as a bit more. Running on XDA Recognized Developer amarullz‘s AROMA installer, Speedy Droid removes bloatware apps and features from stock-derived Sony ROMs (handy after a flash), backs up and restores things like settings and messages, and much more.

Conveniently, Speedy Droid creates backups of apps you’ve chosen to remove, just in case you find yourself regretting your decision and wanting to restore the removed apps. There are two modes, a ‘super’ mode that can be assumed to remove all bloatware apps and features, and and a ‘custom’ mode for those who prefer a bit more flexibility. All this is packed into a neat 5 MB zip file to be flashed via a custom recovery.

So if you own an Xperia SP and would like to give this a go, visit the original thread for more information.

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...
