Xperia Z’s Stamina Mode Ported to 2012 Xperia Devices

Sony’s power management software Stamina Mode is one hallmark feature of the Xperia Z and its siblings marketed by Sony. With capabilities of extending battery life by more than four times and being a native piece of software to the 2013 Xperia lineup, it’s with no wonder that owners of earlier Xperia devices would love to get their hands on this piece of goodness.

So for those with the Xperia S, SL, Ion and Acro S, the anticipation is finally over. XDA Senior Member Aeron sagar has ported Stamina Mode over to the aforementioned devices. Compatible with a deodexed Jelly Bean firmware and with either a locked or unlocked bootloader, users must download the provided zip file and move each file to their corresponding directories in order to install Stamina Mode. Simple.

But how does Stamina Mode work? Well it actually operates quite similarly to some 3rd party battery saving apps out there on the market. Once in standby mode, Stamina Mode kicks in and blocks all data traffic and background activities from waking up the system. This means that apps do not synchronize for new data, messages, and notifications. There are also settings for users to customize the list of apps affected by this, as well as turn on location-based WiFi, a function that will automatically activate WiFi once the phone is within proximity of a saved network.

So if you’ve been waiting on trying this out on your 2012 Xperia device, make sure to check out the original thread for more information and further discussion.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship.
