Forums Added for the Moto X and LG G2

So the much anticipated Moto X launch has come and gone, and many power users were left feeling a bit underwhelmed. Packing a 1.7 GHz dual-core variant of the Snapdragon S4 Pro and a 720p AMOLED panel, the Moto X is certainly not in the same category as the class-leading flagships of 2013—or even 2012. Though with two ancillary processors working in tandem with the main CPU to process specialized tasks, the device’s X8 “Mobile Computing System” is certainly its standout feature.

The LG G2, on the other hand, is every bit a flagship device. The device, which as yet to hit store shelves, features a 2.26 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC. The Snapdragon 800 is comprised of the new Krait 400 processor and the Adreno 330 GPU. The G2 features a 5.2″ 1080p True HD-IPS+ LCD, weighing in at relatively dense 424 ppi, and all of this is packed into a relatively thin 8.9 mm chassis.

Do either of these devices have what it takes to make you part with your hard earned cash? Let us know what you’re looking forward to in your next phone in the comments below, and don’t forget to head over to the newly created forums below to get in on the discussion:

Pinsy Brings Social Sketching To Your Watch & Phone

Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
