Monitor Sony Xperia System Information with System Monitor Small App
Being able to monitor the system information of your Android device is important when you’re looking find out just how well our devices run under different situations–when playing a game, multitasking, or testing a new app or ROM. Of course, there are a plethora of options available on the Google Play Store that easily allow you to do this. However, they generally come in the form of stand-alone apps with widgets and persistent notifications. But if you’re wielding an Xperia device with Small Apps functionality, a much more convenient way is available thanks to XDA Senior Member hansip87.
System Monitor is a Sony Xperia Small App that provides live updates for a range of system information parameters. And being a small app, you won’t have to exit whatever you’re doing on your device in order to view this data. Information being monitored includes:
- CPU and CPU speed
- RAM usage
- Network speed
In addition, System Monitor comes with some great customization options for each of the above, allowing you to toggle different types of information on and off, change the visual elements of the small app interface, adjust the update intervals, and more.
So if you own an Xperia device (or any device which has the Small Apps feature), and you’ve been looking for a way to monitor your device’s system info, be sure to check out the System Monitor Small App thread for more information.
