Xperia Z1 Camera Ported to Qualcomm Xperia Devices

With the release of the Sony Xperia Z1 came the ‘new and improved’ camera app exclusive to the device. With a couple simple taps on the screen, you’ll be able to spawn in dinosaurs and erupting volcanoes in a boring office scene, search additional information on the book or a landmark you snapped, and stream live videos onto your Facebook profile.

It goes without saying, it’s a camera app that has definitely caught the attention of many smartphone users. Hence came the ports of the camera app to fellow 2013 Xperia devices, the Xperia ZRXperia ZLXperia Z, and Xperia Z Ultra, which finally allowed their users to see what things are really about. This was inevitable due to the similar internal architecture the Xperia Z series shares, which no doubt eased the porting process.

With this said, it’s time for owners of a couple more Xperia devices to get taste of the Z1 camera app, as XDA Recognized Developer niaboc79 has managed to port it to all Qualcomm Xperia devices. This includes the Xperia T, TX and V, the Xperia SP, Xperia M, Xperia L, as well as the Xperia S, Acro S and Ion. However, before you dive in, it must be noted that although the port is functional, it is not entirely stable as of yet with a number of bugs that are yet to be polished out.

If you would still like to give this ago, make sure to visit the original thread for more information.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
