How to Get Better Battery Life and Performance on Your Android Phone with a New Kernel. Great Lock Screens for Go Locker. As you know, changing the launcher and lock screen of your phone can give you a completely revamped experience and make your phone feel brand new.

Great Lock Screens for Go Locker

Go Locker (developed and offered by the same great dev team behind Go Launcher and Go SMS, and which we reviewed here) is the most popular lock screen replacement app in the Play Store. Although it currently doesn’t offer the customizability present in WidgetLocker Lockscreen, Go Locker can be modded with a variety of free and paid themes available for download in the Play Store as well.

In this roundup, I’ll show you a few of my favourite such mods. There is only one caveat when it comes to using Go Locker: Go Launcher has to be installed on your phone to use it. While Go Launcher is a very good launcher replacement, the fact that you have to install it makes it feel a bit like installing bloatware. Default Default Theme This is the only theme that is available when Go Locker is first installed.

Neon Genesis Evangelion SH-06D limited edition Android phone arrives June 29th (video) Sharp's heavily customized NERV Edition SH-06D phone finally has preorder and release date info on Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo, and Neon Genesis Evangelion fanboys will want to get there early.

Neon Genesis Evangelion SH-06D limited edition Android phone arrives June 29th (video)

It appears there will only be 10,000 of the phones available, with 3,000 sold via NTT DoCoMo's online store starting June 29th over three days, with 1,000 of them going on sale each day at noon. The rest will be sold at other retailers with preorders kicking off June 16th and although there's no price specified, we're expecting it to be around 25,000 - 30,000 yen with a two year contract. As we saw when the phone was announced in March, it features a heavily customized case, hardware buttons and 3D Android 2.3 skin designed to reflect its heritage. Getting one may require some camping out either in front of a store or on the carrier's website (in Japan of course, we don't expect to see any of these overseas), but at least it's got to be easier than life in Tokyo-3.

Odds are that as long as your phone is not brand new, you've taken a fair number of photos with it.

[New App] InFoto Generates Beautiful And Informative Infographics From Your Pictures

Those images are so much more than a moment frozen in time; they contain delicious data ready to be splayed out and consumed. InFoto slurps up the EXIF data attached to your snapshots and builds some very cool-looking infographics from it. The app lets you generate a new infographic with a single tap, but you can also pull up the last data set instantly if nothing has changed. It can take a moment for InFoto to pull the data out of your images if you have a lot of them.

InFoto's interface is swipable and covers photo data like location, time of day, device orientation, ISO, and flash usage. The interface is very smooth, and I really like the consistent design carried through the entire app. 3 steps to get DNS tunneling on your smartphone.
