Cool Android Setups - #CAS 4

Welcome back to Cool Android Setups 4th Episode. So far we have seen some of the satisfying and amazing setups by you. 

If you want your setup to be features join our community here and use #casfeature
This week the setup is from LE SH with something I haven't seen for a while. So, let's jump into the setup and look at what we have got this week.

The setup has some unique look to it, compared to what we seen in the past 3 episodes of #CAS. The setup seems to be nature inspired with nature inspired wallpaper. The widget used in the setup is KWLP. I personally like the widget of Google. If we add a blue or oceanic wallpaper then the circles around the Google widget would like ripples. The widget according to LE SH is a custom setup from Flow for KWLP. 

Thw launcher used in the setup is NOVA Launcher Pro. This is multi-window setup because we can see navigation buttons in the bottom right. Looking at the software buttons the smartphone might be HTC device. 
So guys, what do you thin…

OnePlus 5 With Dual Rear Camera

It is time for OnePlus to launch its new smartphone, and here we have a photo of OnePlus 5's possible design. Well, if you are thinking what happened to OnePlus 4, if you remember OnePlus 3T was a model released after OnePlus 3.  

Well the photo is not actually showing all the sides of the OnePlus 5, but only the rear side of the device. If this will be the design then I'm up for it. There is dual-rear camera placed in a vertical form with flash below it. We have the OnePlus logo in near center of the rear. 

Looking at the design, the left side will have power button, volume buttons. Like other OnePlus devices, the right side button might be alert slider. OnePlus looks like it will go with curved edges, which does look good. If you look closely we can see very slightlyc antenna bands which are a bit darker. The devices might follow the OnePlus 3T or OnePlus 3's aluminium body or a metal body. That would be good to see and use. The rear side does not pack a fingerprint sensor…

Again, You Can Remap Bixby Button To Google Assistant: Galaxy S8 and S8+

Since, the launch of the SamsungGalaxy S8 and S8 Plus one of the biggest complaint that tech community and others are pointing out the ability, not to remap the Bixby (Samsun'g Voice or Virtual Assistant) to Google Assistant.

If you don't know the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus has both the Bixby and Google Assistant, that it self is something that Samsung did which was confusing. But no worries, a Redditor named Dave Bennett took is coding sword out and decided to write a basic app to bypass Samsung's barricade and simply launch Google Assistant over Samsung;s Bixby. 

If you happen to have a Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus and use this app, you will notice whenever the button is pressed, a quick flash of Bixby appears before Assistant. You don't need Rooting, no ADB (Android Debugging Bridge) command. Just install the "BixRemap" app from Play Store and turn on the app. 


Cool Android Setups - #CAS 3

Hey guys, welcome back to 3rd episode of Cool Android Setups. If you want your setup to be featured, join our community here and add #casfeature to get featured.

Without wasting anymore time, let's get started. This week the setup featured is of Android Customization

The setup is beautiful and has neat layout with not much clutter. Starting from top, you gave a Zooper Widget displaying Time, Weather and Google Search Bar. The Widget is translucent giving a peak into the wallpaper slightly, but my suggestion would be to go full opaque or transparent.

Following, that we have 5 folders, yes they don't look like folder and can be customized in NOVA launcher. The folder here include Walls (i presume it to be wallpaper apps), social, android, editing and games. Each of these are given it's very own color for distinguishing. It looks really nice because of the folder not taking much of the space. I would suggest the colors which look much more brighter. 

The launcher used here is N…

DARKOPS Is Wallpaper App For AMOLED Displays

AMOLED displays as we know is one of the best Displays out there in the market. So AMOLED Displays basically are a type of displays which are good at less power consumptions. 

Cool Android Setups Series

The concept of AMOLED is if an image has black part in it, then the pixels doesn't light up, so you can see the real black in the display giving the image a much more better look. Smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S6, S7, S8, Note 5 have AMOLED Displays and are considered y experts as best among the market. 

For a while I have been testing the DARKOPS wallpaper app and I really like it. It does have variety of wallpapers ranging from Material to Landscapes. The app is free to download and use with no in-app-purchases. But not satisfied by it's performance, sometimes i try to download the wallpaper and it doesn't download or it doesn't set the wallpaper. 

The app is easy to use with not much to roam around. If you are a superhero fan you have got a dedicated menu for that.

Nokia 9 Images Leak and We See Something Satisfying

After entering the market Nokia is playing with full focus to capture market again. We have a new leak of the Nokia 9. 

The Nokia 9, based on the renders (above) looks like it will have a curved display or near-to-no bezzel. The chin of the phone is less, just like Samsung's Infinity display. It has a front facing camera, a speaker or speakers (hopefully). Looks like Nokia will go with software buttons this time too. 

At back it has a dual camera setup, flash and Nokia branding. I wish that Nokia 9 would come in Matte Black finish. Looking at the image, the smartphone looks like a phablet. 

What do you think about the design?

Google AutoDraw Is Much Better At Drawing Than Us: Machine Learning

Google is high on Machine Learning game. Not all of us are good artist, but +Google's AutoDraw can draw very much accurately, Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat. Humans better do more hardwork, because machines are getting much better at drawing.


What is Google's AutoDraw? According to Google "AutoDraw is a new web-based tool that pairs machine larning with drawings created by talented artist to help you draw." 

Google's AutoDraw can be accessed and used using your Smartphone, computer or tablet (do people even you them now) and it's free. Better use this to design your birthday party card. AutoDraw's suggestion uses the same technology as Quick Draw, which is one of Google's A.I. Experiments. 

I personally think this is a good way to teach young artist, how to draw and code. What do you think.

Cool Android Setups #1

Hey guys welcome to Asknext. This is a new series we have started called Cool Android Setups, where we would showcase Cool Android Setups by you. 

This Setups comes from Andre Sari. If you want to enter email us:

The setup is very simple and easy to use. It has got a beautiful gradient wallpaper with Weather widget on Top-Center, followed by a Zooper widget - Google search bar. The search bar kinda blends with the setup giving a minimal look. 
Below the Google Search bar you have the social media apps namingly: Whatsapp, Facebook, Google Plus, Snapchat and Instagram. Followed by the app drawer. Well as you can see there is no button to access the apps like in Marshmallow or below Android OS versions, certainly it looks like Andre is using Google Pixel launcher or some other launcher which I think could be Nova Launcher. Icon pack used is Grace UX - Icon Pack.
