Widget to Show Off Your Operator – Phono for Android

It is funny to see how we are never satisfied. There was quite a bit of development a few years back (and several apps) to remove the operator logo from our screens. Android does not display any of this information by default, so XDA members apus2 and Mæz made some widgets to bring that back and show your love for your carrier.

Aside from displaying the name of the operator, the widget does display other useful pieces of information such as signal strength, data connection, and most importantly, if you are roaming or not. The app recently went to version 1.3, so if you feel like getting this widget, make sure that you leave feedback for the dev.

Ever wonder why there is no operator shown on homescreen? The solution is “phono”, a operator widget.

“phono” is a widget, with a 1×1 or 2×1 style. It shows you operator, phonenumber, signal strenght (graphic and percent), data connection and if you are in roaming or not.

There are different widget-styles included.

In activity-screen you will see additional information about your phone, signal and data connection.

It also includes different languages (English, Italian, German, …..)

“phono” can be found on market for free.

You can find more information in the application thread.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
