Yesterday, we discussed the second part of our tech giants coming to the west series with Huawei. What people may not know, however, is that Huawei owns a company by the name of HiSilicon. Hisilicon's processor department may not be the most popular in the west but their technology is impressive, with year on year improvements being easily seen.

Say Sayonara to Furious Finger Flicking with One Click Scroll
We’ve all been there—you’re scrolling through a contact list, Email inbox, news feed, or any other kind of seemingly endless list, only to realize that you need to get back to either the top or bottom. This realization is usually followed by a hefty sigh and some heavy duty, rapid fire swiping of the display. Okay, perhaps that’s a little dramatic, but it can still be a nuisance. Well, not anymore.
XDA Senior Member jerryfan2000 put together a handy little application called One Click Scroll, which (exactly as the name suggests) allows you to scroll to either the top or bottom of a list with just a single click. Originally intended to be a feature on the hugely popular application Button Savior, the developer decided that this would be something better suited as a standalone application, and it may well receive additional functionality through future updates.
It’s a pretty simple concept: You tap the top left corner of your status bar to scroll to the top and tap the top right corner to scroll to the bottom. This should work on “virtually anything scrollable,“ and that certainly seems to be the case. The only requirements are that your device be rooted and running Android 4.0 or above. However, be warned that if you are currently using any applications that responds to a tap or swipe in either of these locations, One Click Scroll will probably take priority over those actions.
Check out the application thread for more information.
