Here are some amazing Android Mods (2017) that you should definitely try.
Here is a list of what you can accomplish with the latest Android MODs (2017) on any smartphone or tablet running any version of the Android mobile firmware.
Hide Display From Unwanted Person
Device data security is the main concern of modern day smartphone users. That’s why having an ability to hide device displays can be really useful in order to prevent any unauthorized person from gaining access to your device or take a peek at your notifications.
Lets face it, no one likes someone else peeking at phone when you are looking at private photos, reading messages, or doing anything personal, especially when travelling on a public transports like bus, train, or even international flights. However, there is a perfect solution for this. The Screen Guard app lets you add different types of filters to your screen’s display, which makes sure only you are able to view the display properly. You can set a plain filter, choose the color of you liking or use various patterns. There is also an option to set the transparency to the desired level from 0-100%.
So, never again worry about your nosy friends or a complete stranger peeking at your device display when you are doing some personal work on it. Also, make sure to up the device brightness before using this the Screen Guard MOD because at times it can get harder to view clearly in outdoor settings.
Enable Rounded Display
Many flagship Android phones these days feature rounded corners and display at the edges such as Galaxy S7, S8, Xiaomi Mi Mix, LG G6, and many other models. However, there is a good news, you don’t have to purchase an expensive Android phone with rounded corners because with Cornerfly app you can get the rounded display on any Android smartphone.
Download Cornerfly from the Google Play Store, install it and give it required permissions and you will be able to see rounded corners on your smartphone. Paid version of the app allows you to increase the size of the rounded edges as well. You might face app issues on some pages but that can be easily fixed from the app’s settings in the notification center. The rounded corner effect works best on phones with black bezels.
Expand RAM of Your Android Device
This is really useful tip for those who use low to mid range Android device with modest specs with less than impressive RAM. Having a low RAM on your device can severely impact user experience while multitasking, playing graphics intensive games and resource hungry apps. Most Android smartphones come with an external microSD card slot which you can use to expand device’s RAM. You might be wondering isn’t the SD card slot for only expanding storage via external storage card, and not RAM? Well, you are right and wrong.
There is an amazing Android MOD app called ROEHSOFT RAM Expander which you can download from the Google Play Store. However, there is one issue, this app works only on rooted Android devices with apologies to the users of non-rooted Android phones.
You might find the app’s UI outdated and appear complicated at first, but that’s not the case once you are familiar with the functions of this mod. Just tap on the Optimum Values button and select your memory card from the list. You will now see different optimum RAM values for gaming, multitasking and other tasks. You can then choose either one of the options on the list or set the swap value manually to add or reduce RAM. Once done. tap on Swap Active button to create a swap file. When finish, you will have additional RAM at your disposal.
More RAM means faster device and fewer lags. This is one of the most handy Android MODs you will find on the play store. Since it’s a paid app therefore check whether your device model is compatible with it before making a purchase.

The best feature of this app is the Performance Profiles that allows you to select from par saving, balance or performance. Once options are set, the app adjust CPU and GPU to deliver the desired results to give better performance without causing fast battery drain.
You can use France Kernel to manually overclock and underclock CPU and GPU according to your requirements. We wish that this amazing app was available for more Android devices. There is a Kernel Adiutor app for non-supported devices with over and under clocking CPU and GPU features to achieve better performance and battery; the only thing this app lacks is a custom kernel. You should look for custom kernel for you Android device on XDA where you will be able to get one that works with your device model.
