Reefa posted a topic in Mobile NewsGoogle has announced some changes made to its Collections feature that make it easier to find and share content related to the things you’ve searched for and saved. The feature builds upon the activity cards Google introduced last year, this time tapping artificial intelligence to group similar pages the user has visited based on the activity. This is joined by a couple of other changes for desktop and mobile users. These grouped similar pages are referred to as ‘suggested collections’ by Google, which says you have the option of saving them if you like what you see. Users are able to view the suggested collections within the Collections tab on Google’s desktop website and mobile app. There’s also the option of getting rid of them within Settings if you don’t want these suggestions. In addition, and assuming you have a collection saved, Google says that it can now show you other related content that you might be interested in — stuff that is related to the collection, of course. This is made possible by the ‘Find More’ button, which reveals the new content within the saved collection when tapped. Beyond that, Google users can now collaborate with their friends and family on building a collection using the new ‘Share collection’ feature. You’re given control over whether the recipient is only allowed to view the collection or if they are allowed to make edits to it. Google says the shared collections can be made private again at any time. Google is rolling out the collaboration feature to all users around the globe, whereas the related content feature will be arriving ‘in coming weeks,’ according to the company. Users located in the US who have their account set to English will see suggested collections arrive starting this week; other regions and languages will get it ‘over time.’ source
Batu69 posted a topic in Mobile ManiaThe one thing that makes Android superior than other operating system is the level of customizability it offers to its users. Any file can be configured. Its open nature has encouraged a big community of developers to use the open-source code and add new features for advanced users or bring Android to devices build with other operating systems. That’s the reason it has the largest installed base of any operating system. What exactly is Build.prop? Build.prop is short for Build Properties. It’s a file located in the system folder that contains all the information about the device. One can change the device behavior by tweaking build.prop. The file is usually invisible to users, so you need to root your device to tweak its internal functions. How to tweak Build.prop? You can use any file manager app with root browser support to tweak Build.prop. After installing the app, go to System/Build.prop, and then open it in a text editor. Copy the code of your choice and paste it at the end. Click save and you’re done. Some tweaks require restart to take effect. We bring you some of the useful Build.prop tweaks for your rooted Android device. They work for Android Jelly Bean, KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow, Nougat and O version. Make sure you find the specified entries (if not, add them) in your Build.prop file and change the values as mentioned. 22. Better Scrolling You might have noticed your phone is not that smooth while scrolling the screen. You can fix this by altering the minimum and maximum fluid velocity. This will improve your overall scrolling experience. 1 2 3 4 5 6 windowsmgr.max_events_per_sec=150 ro.min_pointer_dur=8 ro.max.fling_velocity=12000 ro.min.fling_velocity=8000 persist.sys.scrollingcache=3 debug.sf.hw=1 21. Auto Rotation for Homescreen and Lockscreen The new versions of Android do not support auto-rotation on lockscreen. Likewise, Numerous OEM launchers and stock launchers do not have auto-rotation support for the homescreen. Well, there is absolutely nothing to worry about. You can enable these rotation functionality by adding this command – 1 2 lockscreen.rot_override=true // for Lockscreen log.tag.launcher_force_rotate=VERBOSE // for Homescreen 20. Better Internet Speed If your browsing speed is not up to the mark on Android device you are using, or if you are suffering from slow download speed, you can improve the overall internet speed by increasing the TCP’s buffersize. Also, forcing device to use Google’s DNS could unlock more speed. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 net.tcp.buffersize.default=4096,87380,256960,4096, 16384,256960 net.tcp.buffersize.wifi=4096,87380,256960,4096,163 84,256960 net.tcp.buffersize.umts=4096,87380,256960,4096,163 84,256960 net.tcp.buffersize.gprs=4096,87380,256960,4096,163 84,256960 net.tcp.buffersize.edge=4096,87380,256960,4096,163 84,256960 net.rmnet0.dns1=220.127.116.11 net.rmnet0.dns2=18.104.22.168 net.dns1=22.214.171.124 net.dns2=126.96.36.199 19. Modify Logcat You can control the Android Logcat file generation, which is mainly used for debugging. Disabling logcat would reduce expensive disk reads/writes. 1 logcat.live=disable 18. Disable Black Screen Issue After Call You might have noticed a black screen for a few seconds after you disconnect a voice call. If this is happening to you on a regular basis, it means your device’s proximity sensor is not functioning properly. It can be fixed by changing the proximity delay value. 1 2 mot.proximity.delay=0 ro.lge.proximity.delay=25 17. Ring Your Phone Immediately When you get a call, the Android system usually waits and verifies the connection before it sends the signals to ring the phone. However, if your device is taking more than usual time before it starts to ring, you can change this by adding the line shown below. 1 2 ro.telephony.call_ring.delay=0 ring.delay=0 16. Improve Voice Call Clarity You can control the AMR audio codec’s property, which is used for voice calls. Also, you can adjust the volume of your voice calls. By default, Android provides seven audio levels for calls. You can change this number to manage it more precisely. The integer value ranging between 7 and 20 is recommended. However, this won’t increase the volume if it’s already low. 1 2 ro.ril.enable.amr.wideband=1 ro.config.vc_call_steps=20 15. Improve Image Quality In order to reduce the processing power, Android system does not display the entire content of an image. It only renders the picture at lower quality, which is good enough but not the best. If you think your device has enough power to handle the image processing task, you can force your hardware to display the original quality. 1 ro.media.enc.jpeg.quality=100 14. Increase Panorama Image Resolution You can force the panorama mode in the camera app to save the picture at a higher resolution. This may not be supported by all devices. 1 2 ro.media.panorama.defres=10800x2442 ro.media.panorama.frameres=3264x1840 13. Quick Power On When your device boots up, there are a lot of services that boot up along with Android. The more applications you have, the longer it would take. However, you can force your device to boot faster by enabling “quickpoweron”, a process in which most of the data is stored as a hibernation file, which is loaded upon the next boot, saving a few seconds. 1 ro.config.hw_quickpoweron=true You can also disable the boot animation by adding the code below 1 debug.sf.nobootanimation=1 12. Rotate Screen to 270 Degree Most of the apps choose to rotate only 90°. However, the Android system supports three default rotation degrees – 90°, 180° and 270°. You can take the leverage of this feature and force all your apps to rotate 270°. 1 windowsmgr.support_rotation_270=true 11. Modify Error Profiler For most users, there is literally no use in having error profiling. However, a few apps might make use of this for generating error reports. You can enable or disable the error profiler by adding the code shown below. Put 0 for enabling or 1 for disabling the feature. 1 2 profiler.force_disable_err_rpt=1 profiler.force_disable_ulog=1 10. Keep Key Lights On While Screen Is On If your phone has backlit capacitive keys on it, you might have noticed that the key lights usually turn off after a few seconds you press it. If you want these key lights to be permanently turned on as long as the screen stays awake, you can do this by changing the back light’s timeout value. 1 ro.mot.buttonlight.timeout=0 9. Keep Your Launcher In Memory If you are using any Android Launcher app, you can force it to stay in the main memory (RAM), by adding the following code. Your device must have enough free memory for this, otherwise you will see lags and performance will be degraded severely. 1 ro.HOME_APP_ADJ = 1 8. Save Power Many Android devices come with built-in battery saving feature, like Sony has “Stamina” and “Ultra Stamina” mode that cut additional background services in order to save battery. You can do it by yourself by adding this code. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 ro.mot.eri.losalert.delay=1000 //this may brake tethering ro.ril.power_collapse=1 pm.sleep_mode=1 wifi.supplicant_scan_interval=180 ro.mot.eri.losalert.delay=1000 power_supply.wakeup=enable ro.config.hw_fast_dormancy=1 ro.config.hw_power_saving=1 7. Disable Automatic Error Reporting App crashing is common on all platforms. Obviously it doesn’t feel good, but the continuous notification of error reporting is even more frustrating. You can get rid of this built-in error reporting function by adding the code shown below. 1 2 profiler.force_disable_err_rpt=1 profiler.force_disable_ulog=1 To disable error checking, use this – 1 2 ro.kernel.checkjni=0 ro.kernel.android.checkjni=0 And to disable the strict mode checking, add this line – 1 persist.android.strictmode=0 6. Change Screen DPI DPI stands for Dots Per Inch, which is also the ratio of your device’s resolution to the display size. Usually, its values are a multiple of 160, but you can set any value you want. 1 ro.sf.lcd_density=420 5. Change WiFi Scan Interval By default, Android scans for WiFi network at an interval of 15 seconds. In order to save battery, you can increase this interval with the following code. The value is in seconds, so if you want to change the interval to say 10 minutes, put 600, instead of 120. 1 wifi.supplicant_scan_interval=120 4. Improve Gaming Experience If you use your phone for extensive gaming, try adding the following code at the end. This will enable tile rendering, utilize processing power and improve 3d performance. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 persist.sys.NV_FPSLIMIT=60 persist.sys.NV_POWERMODE=1 persist.sys.NV_PROFVER=15 persist.sys.NV_STEREOCTRL=0 persist.sys.NV_STEREOSEPCHG=0 persist.sys.NV_STEREOSEP=20 persist.sys.purgeable_assets=1 debug.enabletr=true debug.qctwa.preservebuf=1 dev.pm.dyn_samplingrate=1 video.accelerate.hw=1 ro.vold.umsdirtyratio=20 debug.overlayui.enable=1 debug.egl.hw=1 ro.fb.mode=1 hw3d.force=1 persist.sys.ui.hw=1 ro.sf.compbypass.enable=0 debug.sf.hw=1 debug.composition.type=c2d persist.sys.composition.type=c2d debug.performance.tuning=1 ro.media.dec.jpeg.memcap=8000000 ro.media.enc.hprof.vid.bps=8000000 ro.media.dec.aud.wma.enabled=1 ro.media.dec.vid.wmv.enabled=1 ro.media.cam.preview.fps=0 ro.media.codec_priority_for_thumb=so 3. Modify MMS APN Retry Timer If an SMS/MMS fails to send, Android tries to send it again after 5 seconds. You can change the number of reattempts and interval between those reattempts. The following code will force 3 retries, every 3 seconds. 1 ro.gsm.2nd_data_retry_config=max/_retries=3, 3000, 3000, 3000 2. Improve Touch Responsiveness via Hardware Rendering You can force the Android system to use GPU for rendering each 2d frame in apps. Since Android uses frame by frame rendering of the screen normally, the following code will offload the rendering to GPU by a vast amount. Moreover, it will increase processing, provide better RAM management and make the experience smoother. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 debug.sf.hw=1 persist.sys.ui.hw=1 debug.performance.tuning=1 video.accelerate.hw=1 debug.egl.profiler=1 debug.egl.hw=1 debug.composition.type=gpu 1. Stream Videos Faster Android uses the media framework called “Stagefright”. Although Stagefright is more open and simple, it is often buggy compared to the old OpenCore framework. However, developers have greatly improved its stability. The new framework can be altered to result in faster streaming of online videos, but this might affect the playback stability in some devices. If it’s ruining your experience, revert to the original values. 1 2 3 4 5 6 media.stagefright.enable-player=true media.stagefright.enable-meta=true media.stagefright.enable-scan=true media.stagefright.enable-http=true media.stagefright.enable-rtsp=true media.stagefright.enable-record=true Article source
Want Windows 10 to run faster? We've got help. Take a few minutes to try out these tips, and your machine will be zippier and less prone to performance and system issues. 1. Change your power settings If you’re using Windows 10’s Power saver plan, you’re slowing down your PC. That plan reduces your PC’s performance in order to save energy. (Even desktop PCs typically have a Power saver plan.) Changing your power plan from Power saver to High performance or Balanced will give you an instant performance boost. To do it, launch Control Panel, then select Hardware and Sound > Power Options. You’ll typically see two options: Balanced (recommended) and Power saver. (Depending on your make and model, you might see other plans here as well, including some branded by the manufacturer.) To see the High performance setting, click the down arrow by Show additional plans. [ To comment on this story, visit Computerworld's Facebook page. ] To change your power setting, simply choose the one you want, then exit Control Panel. High performance gives you the most oomph, but uses the most power; Balanced finds a median between power use and better performance; and Power saver does everything it can to give you as much battery life as possible. Desktop users have no reason to choose Power saver, and even laptop users should consider the Balanced option when unplugged -- and High performance when connected to a power source. Preston Gralla Change your power settings in Control Panel to give your PC a performance boost. 2. Disable programs that run on startup One reason your Windows 10 PC may feel sluggish is you've got too many programs running in the background -- programs that you may never use, or only rarely use. Stop them from running, and your PC will run more smoothly. Start by launching the Task Manager: Press Ctrl-Shift-Esc or right-click the lower-right corner of your screen and select Task Manager. If the Task Manager launches as a compact app with no tabs, click "More details" at the bottom of your screen. The Task Manager will then appear in all of its full-tabbed glory. There's plenty you can do with it, but we're going to focus only on killing unnecessary programs that run at startup. Click the Startup tab. You'll see a list of the programs and services that launch when you start Windows. Included on the list is each program's name as well as its publisher, whether it's enabled to run on startup, and its "Startup impact," which is how much it slows down Windows 10 when the system starts up. To stop a program or service from launching at startup, right-click it and select "Disable." This doesn't disable the program entirely; it only prevents it from launching at startup -- you can always run the application after launch. Also, if you later decide you want it to launch at startup, you can just return to this area of the Task Manager, right-click the application and select "Enable." You can use the Task Manager to help get information about programs that launch at startup and disable any you don't need. Many of the programs and services that run on startup may be familiar to you, like OneDrive or Evernote Clipper. But you may not recognize many of them. (Anyone who immediately knows what "bzbui.exe" is, please raise your hand. No fair Googling it first.) The Task Manager helps you get information about unfamiliar programs. Right-click an item and select Properties for more information about it, including its location on your hard disk, whether it has a digital signature, and other information such as the version number, the file size and the last time it was modified. You can also right-click the item and select "Open file location." That opens File Explorer and takes it to the folder where the file is located, which may give you another clue about the program's purpose. [ Further reading: Review: Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 4 ] Finally, and most helpfully, you can select "Search online" after you right-click. Bing will then launch with links to sites with information about the program or service. If you're really nervous about one of the listed applications, you can go to a site run by Reason Software called Should I Block It? and search for the file name. You'll usually find very solid information about the program or service. Now that you've selected all the programs that you want to disable at startup, the next time you restart your computer, the system will be a lot less concerned with unnecessary program. 3. Disable shadows, animations and visual effects Windows 10 has some nice eye candy -- shadows, animations and visual effects. On fast, newer PCs, these don't usually affect system performance. But on slower and older PCs, they can exact a performance hit. It's easy to turn them off. In the Windows 10 search box type sysdm.cpl and press Enter. That launches the System Properties dialog box. Click the Advanced tab and click "Settings" in the Performance section. That brings you to the Performance Options dialog box. You'll see a varied list of animations and special effects. The Performance Options dialog box lets you turn off effects that might be slowing down Windows 10. If you have time on your hands and love to tweak, you can turn individual ones on and off. These are the animations and special effects you'll probably want to turn off, because they have the greatest effect on system performance: Animate controls and elements inside windows Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing Animations in the taskbar Fade or slide menus into view Fade or slide ToolTips into view Fade out menu items after clicking Show shadows under windows However, it's probably a lot easier to just select "Adjust for best performance" at the top of the screen and then click OK. Windows 10 will then turn off the effects that slow down your system. 4. Launch the Windows troubleshooter Windows 10 has a very useful, little-known tool that can sniff out performance problems and solve them. To launch it, type troubleshooting into the search box, and click the "Troubleshooting Control Panel" icon that appears. Then click "Run maintenance tasks" in the System and Security section of the screen that appears. A screen titled "Troubleshoot and help prevent computer problems" will appear. Click Next. The troubleshooter will find files and shortcuts you don't use, identify any performance and other issues on your PC, report them to you and then fix them. Note that you may get a message that says, "Try troubleshooting as an administrator." If you have administrative rights to the PC, click it and the troubleshooter will launch and do its work. Windows 10's troubleshooter can perform maintenance and housecleaning tasks to help speed up your system. 5. Get help from the Performance Monitor There's a great tool in Windows 10 called the Performance Monitor that can, among other things, create a detailed performance report about your PC, detail any system and performance issues, and suggest fixes. To get the report, type perfmon /report into your search box and press Enter. (Make sure there's a space between "perfmon" and the slash mark.) The Resource and Performance Monitor launches and gathers information about your system. It will say that it will take 60 seconds, but I've found that it takes several minutes. When the Monitor finishes, it will launch an interactive report. The Performance Monitor reports details on system and performance issues. You'll find a lot of extremely detailed information in the report, and it can take a lot of time to go through. Your best bet is to first look at the Warnings section, which details the biggest issues (if any) it found on your PC, such as problems with Windows, with drivers and so on. It also tells you how to fix each problem -- for example, how to turn on a device that has been disabled. It is also worthwhile to scroll down to the Resource Overview section, where you'll find an analysis of how well your CPU, network, disk and memory are performing. Each result is color-coded, with green meaning no problems, yellow meaning potential issues, and red showing a problem. Beyond that, the Resource Overview also reports performance metrics and explanatory details. For example, for the CPU, it might show green and a utilization of 21%, with the details, "Normal CPU load." Or for Memory, it might show yellow, with 62% utilization and the details, "1520 MB is available." Based on what you get, you might want to do something about your hardware -- for example, add more memory. 6. Kill bloatware Sometimes the biggest factor slowing down your PC isn't Windows 10 itself, but bloatware or adware that takes up CPU and system resources. Adware and bloatware are particularly insidious because they may have been installed by your computer's manufacturer. You'd be amazed at how much more quickly your Windows 10 PC can run if you get rid of it. First, run a system scan to find adware and malware. If you've already installed a security suite such as Norton Security or McAfee LiveSafe, you can use that. You can also use Windows 10's built in anti-malware app -- just type Windows Defender in the search box, press Enter, and then click Scan Now. Windows Defender will look for malware and remove any it finds. It's a good idea to get a second opinion, though, so consider a free tool like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. The free version scans for malware and removes what it finds; the paid version offers always-on protection to stop infections in the first place. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a useful application that will scan for and fix Windows 10 PC problems. Now you can check for bloatware and get rid of it. Several free programs will do this for you; your best bet is to run several of them, because no single one will find all the bloatware on your PC. Good choices are the PC Decrapifier, Should I Remove It? and SlimComputer. For more details about removing bloatware, check out Computerworld's article "Bloatware: What it is and how to get rid of it." Try just some of these tricks, and you'll find that you've got a faster Windows 10 PC -- and one that is less likely to have any reliability problems. Source
