Everything a New User Needs to Know for the AT&T Galaxy Note

Going from Android phone to Android phone can sometimes be a bit of a challenge when you’re not used to how things are done on the new device. For example, with many HTC phones, you restore your phone by flashing a RUU over the bootloader. For Samsung phones, you flash a factory image over Odin. Essentially these are completely different experiences for completely different devices. It’s an even bigger jump if you’re going to an Android phone for the first time coming from a competing mobile operating system.

Luckily, for people jumping ship over to the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note, you don’t have to go very far to learn what you need to know. That, at least, is the goal for XDA Recognized Contributor appdroid, who has posted a fantastic guide for first time AT&T Note owners and, to an extent, a nice guide for Android users in general.

The guide starts out with a nice glossary that outlines the lingo for the Android world. Acronyms like ADB and terms like Logcat and BusyBox are properly explained for newer users. It’s really something that any new Android user could benefit from. In the next few posts, appdroid gives users the tutorial for rooting the device, adding a custom recovery, backing up ROMs, flashing ROMs and kernels, and how to unroot and return to stock. Most guides stop at just one of these, but this really is the all-in-one guide for owning and rooting an AT&T Note.

For all guides, glossary and more, hit up the original thread.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
