XDA dev able to port Note 5 firmware to Galaxy S6

We admit that Android may not be as secure but you know, there's some beauty to it. Genius hackers can easily do anything they want. Just a few changes in code, some cracking, or rebooting, you can make your mobile device do a certain function or enable a special feature. Just yesterday, we learned that an XDA developer managed to enable Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 on his Sony Xperia Z2. This time, let's bring more fun to the latest bigger, premium flagship by porting the Galaxy Note 5 firmware to the Galaxy S6.

Here’s how to enable Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 on your Sony Xperia Z2

While gadget town is busy anticipating the arrival of the Sony Xperia Z5 and its siblings, some XDA developers were involved in discovering how the Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 feature in an old Xperia Z2 would be activated. Sony was believed to be hiding the feature inside according to showlyshah, a Senior Member on XDA. He said that while searching for more information about QuickCharging 2.0, he saw a list made by Qualcomm of devices that support the new charging technology. The Xperia Z2 was included although Sony did not officially disclose that it's capable of quick charging.

Better Open With gives more knobs when opening files

It's great that Android doesn't tie you down to a specific app for different types of files, but sometimes the default "Complete Action With" behavior is annoying, if not limited.

Notific helps manage notifications while your phone’s still locked

The more apps you install and use, the more your notifications can get messier and at times, more annoying. Yes, we know you can disable notifications per app, but for the ones that you really can’t let go, you need something to make it more manageable for you while you’re working and doing other activities. The Notific lockscreen notification app will attempt to do that for Android smartphone users.

Jolla Launcher Alpha ported to Android 4.2 devices

Jolla has started the alpha testing of its Jolla Launcher for Android, available only for a selected few alpha testers. Of course, this being Android, there is very little to stop more arduous users from taking it and making it available for a wider public, just as what one XDA member did for anyone who owns an Android device version 4.2 or higher.

Inapp Translator floats inside apps to translate text

Inapp Translator is a rather handy utility that, as the name suggests, offers you translation features within any app that allows text to be copied, without leaving that app and switching to a dedicated translation app. But while it offers convenience, the app does have some quirks and limitations that might turn off a few users.
