Installing a mod is usually a fun tweak or feature that improves the quality of an already running system, such as RAM management or add a feature that wasn't there previously. A mod that adds eight features would, statistically, eight times better. XDA Senior Member hansip87 has released a mod for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray that adds 8 features to a user's phone.
