Samsung abandoned the first generation Galaxy Tab 10.1 long time back but folks at xda have been taking care of all of its variants from quite some time. Infact, they even released Android 7.1.1 which is also known as Nougat aka the latest version of the android. It is available for the 3G, wifi and T-mobile variants, so GT-P7510, GT-P7500 and SGH-T859 are covered. Its kernel features are listed below.
CPU overclock (1.2Ghz – 1.6Ghz) CPU voltage control CPU temperature readings GPU overclock (400Mhz) L2 cache optimization F2FS SELinux Voodoo Sound USB Charging Updated WIFI driver ZRAM backports sdcardfs
The developers were able to get everything working except for camera and 3G. Installation instructions are given below.

Samsung may or may not release Android 7 Nougat for the Galaxy Tab S2 but that has not stopped folks at XDA from churning out a ROM that works on it. In fact, the custom android 7 Nougat ROM has everything working except for the video recording. Also no gapps are installed but opengapps.org are there and you can flash them from the custom recovery of Galaxy Tab S2.
Installation instructions: * Install image in TWRP (download link to ROMs, SM-T815 / SM-T810) * reboot to recovery * install opengapps (I used pico) and supersu to obtain root on Galaxy Tab S2.
Again, while almost everything is working, there are couple of bugs. First is unable to video recording and second is pictures are saved with wrong orientation but those are going to bug you only if you use camera. Not a lot of people I know use camera on their tablets so it should not be a big deal.
We perfectly understand that it can get very frustrating to take pictures of something important and later on, coming to realise that the most of the pictures you took were too noisy. There are plethora of reasons why a photo turned out to be noisy. The most common factor is poor lightning conditions. That said, there are some amazing applications that let you get rid of the noise and the most recommend application is Movavi Photo DeNoise.
Using Movavi Photo DeNoise, you will be able to instantly denoise the photo. The application makes use of smart removal algorithm to get rid of any and every type of digital noise and in the end, this noise reduction software will yield super crisp, detailed pictures. It comes with several other amazing algorithms that smart sharpen the images by getting rid of noise without losing details, making the picture look vivid and crisp.
To get started, download the application on your computer. It is available for both Mac and windows operating system. Mac users will get DMG file for installation which they have to drag to the Applications folder to complete the installation. Windows users get EXE file which has an easy-to-follow installer, allowing one to install the application in few mouse clicks. Now that the installation has completed, start the application by double clicking on it.
Click on “Browse for images” button to start adding the images that you want to denoise. It is also possible to simply drag and drop the images to the application window.
Now, go to the Denoise tab and start tinkering with the Light noise field. Move the slider to the right to start denoising the picture. Feel free to play with other image editing controls like Color Noise and Radius. Change the intensity of the denoise filter by moving the slider to the left or right.
The application also lets you crop, level and rotate the pictures. If you going to share this picture on a social media networking site, you might want to use resize option in the application that will drastically reduce the size of the pictures, allowing you to share the pictures much more easily. You can also use this option for email.
Now that we have done denoising the image, it is time to save the modified pictures. Click on the Export button to save them to the hard disk of your computer.
There are two types of smartphone shoppers out there. One buy smartphones for gaming and social networking and second category purchase them for doing productivity work on the move. While gaming is best done on an Xbox or Play station, you cannot take them everywhere with you. That is why gamers demand phones with solid graphics that will enable them to play console quality games o the move. In this article we will tell you the best smartphones for gaming and productivity. Same is case with ultrabook laptops in UK that being used by more and more gamers these days.
Ultrabooks are now being used for more and more tougher things these days. There are now ultrabooks for AutoCAD, photoshop, graphics designing and even video editing. But first, let us talk about Samsung phones that great for productivity and gaming. The first phone on our list is the Samsung Galaxy S6 which replaces the Galaxy S5 that has been on sale from the past one year. The S6 brings a much improved processor and an all new design. The Galaxy S6 looks different from any Samsung out there, thanks to its all glass construction and unibody design.
While it has same screen size as the yester year’s model, it packs better resolution, higher storage capacity and more memory. It also comes pre loaded with Microsoft applications like Office suite and OneDrive that will keep you productive on the move. And since it packs the latest graphics processing unit, the Samsung Galaxy S6 can play any game available on the Android play store.
Now let us talk about ultrabook laptops in UK. These are being used by a lot of laptop users, especially for gaming as they are thin and light. While they cost extra, you will be able to find some cheap gaming ultrabooks in UK for 400, and even 500 pounds. Gaming ultrabooks in UK can be bought for as low as 500 pounds in UK. These gaming ultrabook laptops have high quality and can also be used for productivity. Just make sure you buy only the ones recommended by experts.
Our second recommendation is the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Often touted as the world’s best phablet, the Note 4 offers so much more than just being a phone with a big display. Like the Galaxy S6, it offers a quad HD display packing 2,560 x 1,440 pixels but it offers a few extra perks like removable battery and stylus support. One can remove the Note 4’s battery by removing the back panel. The stylus (which is called S-Pen) allows you to jot notes just like you do with pen and paper. Screen of the Samsung Note 4 measures 5.7 inches which is great for doing multi tasking and playing games. You should take a look at the latest Samsung mobile price list to make sure you do not spend more.
Another great smartphone for doing both gaming and productivity is Motorola’s Moto X. It has 5.2 inch display and packs full HD resolution. Like the two aforementioned Galaxy phones, it too comes with top of the line Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 processor that hums at 2.5 GHz clock speed. It can practically any game out there with ease. It is a great productivity tool too, thanks to built in LTE, 3G and great display quality. Moto X offers cleaner Android experience. There is no Samsung Touch Wiz interface running on top which is well known for consuming extra resources.
However if you are really tight on budget, consider taking a look at the Asus Zenfone 5. It features a dual core Atom processor and Power VR SGX544MP2 GPU that handles even demanding games like Real Racing and Need for Speed easily. Business users will appreciate its big 5 inch display with IPS technology. The screen is very crisp and great for looking and editing documents on the go. Other nifty features include A-GPS, big 2110 mAh battery and micro SD card slot.
Galaxy Note 3: While the Note 3 has been superseded by Samsung Galaxy Note 4, it still offers an impressive package for businessmen. You get a very powerful octa core Exynos processor by Samsung and a S-Pen stylus support. Stylus is same as the one present on Note 4. The processor is more than enough capable to play any application or game on the Google play store. Like Note 4, you get removable battery which is useful for those who like to use their phone a lot. You can swap batteries on the move and can prolong runtimes.
However if you are into iOS operating system, the best choice is iPhone 6 Plus. The 6 Plus offers a big display with dual window support, allowing users to see a lot of information on the screen simultaneously. The battery, unlike the Note series by Samsung, is not removable. But on the bright side, you get amazing battery life. Microsoft recently made Office available to iPhone and this has increased the productivity value of the iPhone.
If you love windows platform, then we recommend going for the Microsoft Lumia 950XL. It has a massive 5.5 inch full HD display with IPS technology. It offers great gaming performance. And since it is a windows 10 mobile, you get Microsoft Office built in, allowing you to get productive straight out of the box. Windows mobile store has matured a lot over the past few years and offers great gaming titles like Halo and Modern Combat.
Given how crowded the tablet market is, the Transformer range launched by Asus in 2011, needs to be able to stand out from its rivals in order to make any real impression. The key area where the various Transformer Pads – from the Prime to the Infinity – need to hit the mark is gaming, as this is probably the single most popular use of mobile devices for the majority of users. Now that the price of cheap gaming laptops is around 500 pounds in UK, does it makes sense to spend similar amount on tablets? There’s game for every audience, whether you want Candy Crush or Subway Surfers, catering for children and grown-ups alike. So how good is, then, the gaming experience on a Transformer Pad compared to the laptop, iPad and Galaxy Tab?
The initial model, the Asus Transformer, launched back in March 2011 was arguably well behind rivals like the iPad when it came to gaming – but the subsequent Prime and Infinity models seem like they could close the gap on Apple. Android devices have always suffered in comparison with Apple ones thanks to the failure to attract the top games developers to create primarily for this OS along with poor battery life, but this is an area where they are now starting to really compete with Apple.
Many of the most popular iOS games, for example Football Manager 2012 Handheld, are now available for the Android OS as well – which means they can be played on a Transformer Pad. Also due to rising popularity of mobile power banks like Itian C1 Qi Wireless Car Charger, it is easier to prolong battery life runtimes.
It adds more than enough power to keep your Transformer Pad or Samsung galaxy tab tablet run for hours and hours. Furthermore, the actual experience of playing games on these devices has been enhanced significantly by the presence of the quad core Nvidia processor in the Galaxy Tab 3, Prime and the Infinity (as well as the cheaper 300 model) because this provides gamers with a combination of processing and graphics power that will make games such as Candy Crush ones much more enjoyable.
Anyway, the question arises if the cheap gaming laptops for 300 pounds in UK are a better buy than these tablets which costs about the same. The thing is these tablets can run games up to a certain level while you can actually enjoy Xbox level gameplay in case of laptops. You will also be able to connect gaming controllers in these 300 pounds gaming laptops in UK, something you cannot do in case of android tablets – yet.
So if you are into hardcore gaming, going into gaming laptops makes more sense otherwise tablets are a better buy. As befits such a high end tablet, the Infinity also boasts a screen size and image resolution which is virtually unsurpassed. Less expensive models like the 300 do not compete on this count, but the excellent processor, great choice of games and the option of a docking keyboard makes gaming on any Transformer Pad amongst the best tablet gaming experiences it is possible to have.
