Big Changes Coming to XDA Marketplace on 10 March
We allow people to buy and sell in our XDA Marketplace forum. We realize that this is a great service to many, as it enables trading and selling of devices so that our members can always try to have the latest and greatest mobile devices.
Historically, we have taken a hands-off approach to the Marketplace, as our primary focus was to keep the XDA forums clean to enable the best environment possible for development. To avoid scams, we installed a feedback system last year that made users accountable. But, that hasn’t been enough.
Effective 10 March, we will be placing tight new restrictions on the Marketplace to further avoid dishonest conduct. The following will be in effect for anyone to post in both the Wanting to Buy and Wanting to Sell forums:
1. You must have 50 posts
2. You must be a member of XDA for at least one year
3. If you are selling, you must take a photo of the phone with XDA as a backdrop on your screen with your username showing
4. If you are selling, you may only sell two devices per month, and each listing must be contained with its own thread
Also remember that transactions shall not take place via PM and that anything other than vital information (member information such as address, etc) for payment and shipping purposes, should be stated within the thread.

In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...
XDA Recognized Contributor Albe95 has shared with us what looks to be Galaxy S6 applications. The ones he's provided are the GearManager, the Optical Reader, GeoNews and Kids Mode. The applications are available for download through the links in the opening post, but keep in mind it is likely that they might not be compatible with your device. There's also new information about more applications and system interface features revealed in the same thread: The alleged S6 statusbar and panel are ported to the...
