Xperia Honami camera features modded for available handsets

We've seen leaks of the Xperia handset codenamed "Honami" a few times over the last few weeks, including some images said to be of the device that surfaced earlier today. Among the rumored specs is a 20MP rear camera and snazzy camera features that include Timeshift, Info-Eye, and more. One industrious developer has worked up a mod with these features for a few Xperia devices, so you can try them out now.

Battery Widget? Reborn! is a neat circle battery meter for Android [Hands-on]

We've all seen and probably used tons of different battery meters, widgets, and mods in the past but today we have our personal favorite to share with everyone. Yes, crazy as it sounds it's actually called 'Battery Widget? Reborn!' and today is even being featured by Google with their new wireless charging orb in the Play Store. Goofy punctuation aside, this is hands down one of the best battery widget apps I've come across and it's available in beta for free, or a Pro version as we speak.

Slide 2 Wake enables locking and unlocking by sliding capacitive buttons

This sort of thing is why I love Android. A n innovative modder named "bponury" from the fairy land that is XDA-Developers has posted a video of his latest creation, the Slide 2 Wake kernel. It enables a quick sleep mode via a swipe across the capacitive keys from right to left, and an easy unlock from wake via a swipe from left to right. Thus you can turn your phone on and off without ever actually touching the screen.
