Dabble in Minimalism With Android Emulator Boot Animation

Sometimes, the classiest aesthetics can be found in understated and minimalist design. Boot animations are no different. Sure everyone likes to knock a certain fruit off of its pedestal every now and then, but few things can beat minimalism in the long run.

To that end, XDA forum member Darkshado saw the Android emulator’s appealingly spartan boot animation and decided to capture it for use with our physical Android devices. In the words of the developer:

A few weeks ago, after using the Android Emulator for the first time I wondered how the built-in boot animation would look on the phone itself. Quick search showed no-one had bothered.

I didn’t keep it as my “daily driver” but since I went to the trouble of capturing the animation and editing it into something usable, I thought some people here might like it nonetheless.

Continue on to the original thread to get some emulator-style boot animation action!

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Drop Test

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
