Screen Brightness Tweaks for Better Battery Life on the Galaxy S III

Devices are rarely released with their full potential realized. If this were the case, root access wouldn’t be required to fix many inherent device issues. Granted, most users likely would still seek superuser status because having root is fun. Thankfully over time, OEMs have at least thought to quell the biggest and worst bugs before releasing a device. Still, there always seems to be a little problem here and there that needs to be fixed. The Samsung Galaxy S III is no exception, as users have found that the brightness settings are a little quirky.

XDA Senior Member mattiadj has released a couple of fixes for the settings to make them a little more logical. The first is a custom fix by mattiadj, and the others are copycat settings from the Samsung Galaxy Note. Differences between the two aren’t much, as the custom settings are geared toward battery saving and the values keep the screen pretty dim at low levels. The Galaxy Note settings are brighter at low levels to, as mattiadj put it, make the SAMOLED look more brilliant.

The tweaks are easily flashed through any custom recovery. Two versions of each mod have been made: one for non-stock based ROMs and for stock based ROMs.

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...
