camera oriented features including capability to record full
HD videos with three varied frame rates along with three
separate modes for shooting at 720p as well.

strategy. It is believed that Nokia has redesigned the
camera interface in the phone with circular on screen dial
controls along with other features including manual mode
to adjust camera settings, Nokia’s new Pro Camera
application, and much more.

The phone is rumored to come with a 4.5-inch (720p)

ChatHeads for all notifications – app for Android + My review :-/

image

With that out of the way, this is Floating Notifications Alpha 2 requires a CLEAN INSTALL

image

Theme’s can be found in this thread
How does it work

– Setup your settings in the UI.
– Then go to your System Settings -> Accessibility -> Floating
Notifications – Turn it on
You will see one test notification. You will see this ANYTIME
the service starts/restarts. This is there so A you know the
service has started and B so you can get a feel for how they
work. This will obviously NOT be in the final version.
Controls
– Tap to open the stack
– Tap the current notification to close the stack
– Tap the text of a notification to launch that app
– Drag the first notification in the stack to move around the
screen
– Double tap to close a notification
– Double tap a closed stack to close all notifications

App List

– Checkbox to enable disable
– Second icon is expanded notification text
– Third is stack messages (meaning show all or show only the
latest)
– Fourth is enable actions (JB+ if your notification normally
has any buttons they’ll appear)
– Fifth is wake the screen on notification
Sensitivity
– The double tap threshold refers to the amount of time in
milliseconds between taps. So if you set it to 1000 it will wait
one second for your second tap before it brings up the text.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3
scored an outstanding 27914 on the site’s Benchmark test while running a 1.6GHz processor and sporting Android 4.3. What we don’t know is
if the silicon under the hood is the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa-core. The high score could indicate that this is exactly what is powering the device.
After all, the nearly 28,000 tallied by the Samsung Galaxy Note III would put the phablet slightly above the 27,417 scored by the Exynos powered Samsung Galaxy S4.
