Slide2Wake Brought to the Galaxy Nexus

We previously brought you news about Slide2Wake awhile ago when it was released for the EVO 3D. For anyone who doesn’t know, Slide2Wake is a simple application that allows users to slide their finger across the screen in order to wake it up. This is perfect for flashaholics who’ve somewhat damaged their power button, and can’t figure out a way to unlock their phone. It’s also just convenient, as it requires no button presses. Simply remove from the pocket, swipe and go.

XDA Senior Member bponury recently got a hold of a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and has been kind enough to port the application. While the OP states that it is for the GSM Nexus, it has been reported as successfully working on the LTE Nexus as well.

This version’s only drawback compared to the EVO 3D version is that it doesn’t yet support all Galaxy Nexus kernels. It does, however, support many of them, and it’s very likely that support for the remaining kernels will be added eventually. Otherwise, the app works just like it should—allowing users to swipe their screens on at will. It’s pretty simple, but also pretty awesome.

For additional information, head over to the original thread.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Drop Test

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
