International Galaxy S2 Says Goodbye To CyanogenMod 11, Skips 12.0 Entirely For Fresh Nightly Build Of 12.1 Instead

At this point, custom ROMs are the only things keeping old Galaxy S2s feeling fresh and vaguely modern. If you turned to CyanogenMod as your experience of choice, you've been left stranded on version 11 running Android KitKat. Now you're in for a treat. Fresh builds of CyanogenMod 12.1 are ready for download.

These nightly builds bring Android 5.1 to the four-year-old device. That's nothing to take lightly. These nightlies may not provide the most stable experience, but at this point, that old version of TouchWiz probably isn't either.

    MOTA Battery Case For Samsung Galaxy S6 Review: Affordable, Functional, And Some Drawbacks

    If you aren't familiar with the controversy over Samsung's decision to make the S6 and S6 Edge's batteries non-replaceable, you probably don't follow Android news very much. Because you can't just swap out another battery, more people have gotten interested in figuring out how to ensure they have an operating phone after a long day. One method that owners of many smartphones have been using for years is the battery case. While there are tradeoffs involved in putting a case on your phone that is big enough to house a battery, there is a payoff too: no need to find an outlet or juggle wires when your device would normally be running out of juice.

    Material Theme Available For The Samsung Galaxy S6 And S6 Edge, Looks More Like Lollipop And Less Like Touchwiz

    Last week, there was a kerfuffle online about a couple of themes developed by an XDA member for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge that aimed to bring a more authentic Material look to Samsung's devices. Said themes were approved then suspended by the company, supposedly because of copyright infringements over the wallpaper and icons, but the developer fixed those issues and has resubmitted them.

    Galaxy S6 Android 5.1.1 Update On T-Mobile Added RAW Photo Support, But Not In The Stock Camera App (Yet)

    The T-Mobile Galaxy S6/S6Edge is (strangely) the only variant that currently has an official Android 5.1.1 build, and it turns out there's an interesting little bonus hiding inside. Samsung has added support for RAW photography to the Galaxy S6 in this update. The catch is that it's not supported in the stock app at this time.
