More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
Concept Design – HTC Blast
XDA member psikopathe decided to share with us a concept device that he had been working on, the HTC Blast. The concept shows a bottomless front smart-phone using something the designer calls Hand Power, which will turn on your device by simply touching it and without the need of pressing any button. It features a big Amoled 4.7″ 1280×720 pixels screen with a dual core Snapdragon at 1.5 GHz, 1 GB of ROM and 1 GB of RAM with 32 GB of internal storage, a 12 Mpx camera with full HD and a 3.2 MP front camera.
The design is slim and includes a dedicated camera button as well.
What do you think of this concept? what else would you include or modify?

Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
