Like most modern Windows phones, the LG eXpo (see review) has its share of quirks and niggles.
We addressed the notifications one awhile back and it looks like the fine folks at LG-expo.com have gone even further, making one of those handy all-in-one fixer programs.
Appropriately called Expo/IQ Tweaker, it consists of a large list of fixes and options that you simply check to enable or disable certain features. We'll just highlight the big ones that really make a difference:
- Improve screen sensitivity and touch response
- Enable in-call recording
- Increase IE performance/scrolling
- Enable tethering
- Enable auto-rotation in all programs
- Fix missing sounds and notifications
- Increase KB backlight time
The most important one is the screen sensitivity/touch response, as the screen is a little laggy compared to traditional devices and is by far the biggest complaint about the eXpo. I'm happy to report that these registry tweaks greatly improve the screen in that regard. Likewise, fixing the sounds and notifications was the other big issue and that too works brilliantly here.
You'll need to have .NET CF 3.5 installed and you'll need to register at LG-Expo.com to grab the file. But if you're and LG eXpo fan like myself, you'll definitely want this program.
Kudos to Woodhole and team for the great work!
